Scott Pruitt EPA swamp-draining fear brings crocodile tears

Last Friday’s 56-42 Senate vote confirmation of Scott Pruitt as top EPA administrator brings a very unwelcome political climate change for many of the agency’s 15,000 federal career employees and their executive branch-appointed bosses who fought his approval tooth and claw. Referring to their aggressive and defiant letter-writing and telephone campaign protesting Pruitt’s appointment, Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University Director James Thurber told the New York Times, “It is rare…I can’t think of any other time when people in the bureaucracy have done this.” The vast majority of those protesters are Civil Service employees who can’t be [...]

Fake climate news brings costly, unneeded regulations

CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell recounts the origins and history of the so-called "97% consensus" of climate scientists that human activity is the chief cause of climate change. Bell points out that neither historian Naomi Oreskes nor Australian blogger John Cook - nor Illinois graduate student Maggie Kendall ZImmerman - is a climate scientist and that their so-called data are bogus.

Regional power grids face three dangerous threats

The U.S. power grid is very susceptible to cyber attacks and physical attacks (as happened in Metcalf, California) but mostly to the ongoing fanatical green assault that has led to wind and solar -- both intermittent and widely fluctuating -- interrupting the normal flow of energy through the grid and causing awkward moments for backup natural gas and other generators.

New EPA head a welcome political climate change

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, President-Elect Trump's pick to head the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is being painted by fearful leftists as a monster, a creature who will destroy the planet. The fact is he is much more interested in reversing the unconstitutional power grabs that the EPA has accomplished that are hurting the American people financially, reducing human freedom, and doing little to really protect the environment.

Trump could shutter NASA climate alarm shop

President-elect Donald Trump’s senior space policy advisor, Bob Walker, recently observed that NASA has been reduced to "a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring." Instead, "We see NASA in an exploration role, in deep space research." He added, "Mr. Trump’s decisions will be based upon solid science, not politicized science."

Trump election chills Kerry’s Antarctic trip

CFACT polic advisor Larry Bell notes that the only real heating in the Antarctic is very likely due to volcanic activity below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry took his last official trip to Antarctica -- to try to cool down the Trump phenomenon that is threatening the wealth and power of the UN and worldwide climate alarm industry.

American energy finally wins its independence

The 2016 election marks a turning around of U.S. energy policy back toward true "all of the above," with a focus first on using domestic oil, natural gas, and coal resources -- and other energy sources -- to keep the price of energy low, helping consumers and attracting business development. Exploiting domestic resources also creates jobs -- which the American people have demanded.

Do people fear clowns over climate change?

If you distrust different polls ranking Hillary and Donald as scariest presidential choices, how about conflicting surveys comparing people more afraid of clowns than global warming? According to an October 15-17 Vox Morning Consult poll of 1,999 Americans, clown fright beat out climate sweats by 42% versus 32%. Vox followed up on an October 11 Chapman University poll of 1,511 which awarded the terror tribute to climate calamity over clown phobia by 32.3% versus 7.8%. Incidentally, these Chapman ranking differences narrow to only a 2.4% when adding people who are "afraid or very afraid" of zombies (10.2%), and ghosts (8.9%). Those [...]

The EPA invites secret green activist lawsuits

As reported by CFACT advisor Larry Bell, federal agencies and environmentalist organizations have for decades been colluding to impose requirements on businesses, communities, and individuals who will have had zero knowledge or input into these onerous rules backed with the force of law that they are sorely affected by. This is wrong -- and yet the public will have to speak up loudly or this racketeering-style rulemaking behavior wil continue unabated.

‘Clean Power Plan’ relies on dirty climate science

Draconian energy regulatory policies are being premised upon tax-funded climate alarmism promulgated by government agencies we are supposed to trust. The latest and arguably most dangerous example is the Obama Administration’s proposed “Clean Power Plan” (CPP). CPP enactment is currently subject to a pending District of Columbia Court of Appeals decision following a Supreme Court stay on constitutional challenges. If allowed to proceed, sweeping new EPA rules will effectively nationalize control over all power generation and consumption, thereby usurping authority previously exercised by individual states. Compliance will require state legislatures to pass new laws or regulations to shift energy mixes from [...]
