• Keeping the poor impoverished

    To the world’s poor, electricity (including air conditioning), modern highways, quality medical care, and so much more of the good things first world people take for granted are routinely denied them out of concern for the environment (sic), or rather the elites’ insistence that they rule over the poor with a paternalistic (slavemaster) hand. CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen calls the actions of these elites “callous, immoral, eco-imperialistic, and genocidal.” As newly elected Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte says, “They think they can dictate our destiny,” but we will not submit to their rule.

  • Real climate denial

    U.S. Senator Tim Kaine is among the leaders of a Senate cabal seeking to discredit climate skeptics, including the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, for which Megan Toombs is Director of Communications.

Instead of criminalizing differences of opinion or inconvenient facts, we might do well to root out actual fraud, let real science prevail, and protect our livelihoods and living standards from unscrupulous people and organizations that are using fraudulent climate chaos claims to control energy use, transform the U.S. and global economic systems, and redistribute the world’s wealth.

  • Climate skeptics face Senate inquisition

    Galileo has lots of modern-day companions. Woe be unto those who dare to doubt that the sun orbits around Planet Gore as pontiffs of doom have decreed. That’s exactly the 17th Century time warp scenario that played out last week on the Senate floor as Chief Inquisitor Sheldon Whitehouse (D, RI) and 18 fellow jurists […]

  • When will Africa get healthy and prosperous?

    A cynical coalition of environmentalists and corrupt dictators and bureaucrats is working overtime to keep most Africans (except themselves) poor and malnourished, without jobs or even access to modern medical care. Steven Lyazi asks when politicians and activists will stop pontificating about saving the environment and start saving the lives of Africa’s people?
