In northern California, Chinook salmon have long been threatened in part because the young fish that swim from the Sacramento River to the ocean are often too small and helpless to escape the predators that eat them by the millions.
Those fearful about man-made global warming want to see stricter government regulations on carbon to stave off climate catastrophe. But according to the Center for the Study of Science, carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. from energy production and use have been declining since 2005.
One might say that the good people of Warsaw are Poles apart from the UN's view of fossil fuels, which amounts to an outright condemnation of coal and suspicion of oil and natural gas. CFACT President got perhaps the warmest reception of his life when he spoke at a Polish independence day celebration that was also broadcast live to millions more on Polish national television.

Most people think of windmills as one of the cleanest, most earth-friendly energy sources around. But according to the Institute for Energy Research, rare earth minerals needed for windmills like neodymium and dysprosium are being mined in China and leaving behind horrible environmental conditions.
Washington Times: "President Obama promised [to]“fundamentally transform” our nation — to “protect” us from climate “cataclysms” that exist only in presidential speeches, Hollywood movies, U.N. computer models and EPA press releases.
The conference included representatives and spokesmen from the U.S., Italy, Sweden, Hungary, and Poland.

When you think of farm animals, no doubt chickens, cows, and sheep come to mind. But how about tigers? Well believe it or not, some conservationists are proposing the creation of tiger farms to help stem the demand for tiger parts in what is now a bustling global black market.

Our National Parks are beautiful areas that many enjoy visiting. But did you know some are privately managed? Laura Huggins of the group PERC believes such private management is a good thing, and here explains why. . .
While opponents of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas continue to raise alarms about its safety, scientists continue to give fracking a clean bill of health.
Way up in the Alaskan wilderness is a place called Chicken where 17 full-time residents and a few dozen seasonal staff work at small, family-run gold mines. So it was more than a little shocking when eight armed men from a federal Environmental Crimes Taskforce showed up in full body armor to check the water quality?
The EPA recently announced its first-ever rules on the amount of carbon dioxide that can be emitted from new power plants. But while many Green spokesmen and global warming believers hailed this as a major breakthrough, the EPA itself says the proposed rule will yield no actual emissions reductions or benefits whatsoever over the next 10 years.
A recent UN climate report claims to be more certain than ever that humans are responsible for so-called global warming. Dr. Roy Spencer, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, disagrees. . .
After hearing predictions from the Sierra Club and BBC that the Arctic Sea would be ice free this past summer due to global warming, a variety of adventurous yacht, sailboat, rowboat, and even kayak owners thought it would be neat to sail the fabled Northwest Passage.
