April 26, 2018 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ Sen. Bernie Sanders’ big-idea solution to everything is big government. The independent senator from Vermont wants government-run, single-payer health care.

Linking Hurricane Matthew To Climate Change Is Overblown Hype

October 7, 2016 by

An Inconvenient Truth: Liberal Climate Inquisition Can’t Explain Past Temperature Changes

May 3, 2016 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ In the week prior to the administration signing what should constitute an international climate treaty, one think tank, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, was subpoenaed for casting doubt on the agreement’s associated science of climate catastrophe. As disturbing as such thuggery from state attorneys general would be in any case, the […]
