By Paul Driessen ~ In December 2009, the Obama Environmental Protection Agency issued its Endangerment Finding (EF) – decreeing that carbon dioxide (CO2) and other “greenhouse gases” (GHGs) endanger the health and welfare of Americans.

Having achieved major goals, US should refocus EPA and other environmental agencies By Paul Driessen ~ Donald Trump plans to “roll back progress” on climate change, energy and the environment, activists, regulators and their media allies assert.

Why The Media’s Portrayal Of Carbon Dioxide Is Often Wrong

September 7, 2016 by

Climate change is all-purpose excuse for Big Green and federal misfeasance and malfeasance By Paul Driessen ~ First the Obama EPA came for coal mines, coal-fired power plants, miners, workers, investors, and all who depend on reliable, affordable electricity.
