CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen exposes the unscientific shenanigans of the International Agency for Research on Cancer that are under Congressional investigation for scientific bias, secrecy, and corruption -- and how the IARC, much of whose funding is from the U.S. Congress, has arrogantly obfuscated, stalled, and even demanded immunity.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen sings an ode to the benefits of federalism and other gifts from the founders in an article inspired by a jazz combo. He reports that the 2016 election was swung in "flyover country" out of a growing frustration with an ever-expanding federal government that had largely discarded the concept of federalism and was dictating too many aspects of our lives.
A new lesson set called the Climate Change IQ (CCIQ) provides a good skeptical critique of ten top alarmist claims.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reports that the ongoing decrease in sunspot activity portends lower global temperatures -- demonstrating again that carbon dioxide is not the primary driver of climate change.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen laments the long, arduous battle to open the Keystone XL pipeline -- an action that would eliminate the need for 1,225 railroad tanker cars per day (450,000 per year) or 3,500 semi-trailer tanker trucks daily (1,275,000 annually) that currently transport oil to refineries, saving lives and costs and creating jobs in rural America. Driessen also recounts the many ways that fossil fuels enrich humanity -- from feed stocks for paints, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and other products to powering the manufacturing centers that create computers, smart phones, healthcare technologies, vehicles, and batteries.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen recounts how the National Institutes for Environmental Health Sciences has colluded with radicalized international agencies, anti-chemical pressure groups, and trial lawyers to undermine the U.S. regulatory process. Congress is now investigating and may sanction the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Italy's Ramazzini Institute, and other fear mongers who have sabotaged sound science with spurious claims backed by lawsuits.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris report from Bonn that the IPCC is now resorting to even more spurious "science" than ever in support of its wildly alarmist claims of climate catastrophe around the corner. They cite a vast lack of real-world data to support these claims, noting that there are no weather stations representing about 85% of the Earth's surface area.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reveals the depths to which top bureaucrats at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fudged data so they could falsely report that carbon dioxide emissions were causing massive acidification of the Earth's oceans and that ocean temperatures had warmed twice as much as honest data showed.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reports on the disastrous mismanagement of America's Western forests by federal officials and the tremendous cost in human and plant and animal life and quality of life these policies have fostered. As Rep. Tom McClintock says, "These laws have not only failed to improve our forest environment, but they are literally killing our forests."
Analyst David Wojick reports that the Climate Science Special Report, soon to be released by the federal Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) as Volume I of the National Climate Assessment, is an alarmist document that would undermine all efforts to rein in the climate monarchy. Wojick calls for a Red Team review of the CSSR that would be entered as an official critique of the CSSR.
Paul Driessen, author of "Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death," explains the vast difference between Real Sustainability, which implies wisely using our resources and always looking to innovate, and Politicized Sustainability, a radical policy that focuses on focuses on ridding the world of fossil fuels, regardless of any social, economic, environmental, or human costs of doing so -- and regardless of whether supposed alternatives really are eco-friendly and sustainable.
The U.S. Supreme Court fell for junk science when it approved the EPA's "finding" that carbon dioxide is the chief driver of global climate change, notes CFACT advisor Dennis T. Avery. The EPA models have all been proven false using historical and current data, and thus there is no scientific underpinning for this jobs-killing, energy-crushing decision. The hope is that, with Justice Neil Gorsuch now on the bench, the Court will overturn its own "Endangerment" finding.
Can the heavily politicized Goddard Institute for Space Studies be reformed?
Ugandan author Steven Lyazi scoffs at the chiding and covert racism of wealthy environmental advocates who live in luxury but demand a lower quality lifestyle for Africans. He points the finger at the Club of Rome for banning DDT once they realized that Africans not dying from malaria and other diseases would live longer and have more children. His words echo the toothless declarations that sustainable development restrictions should not apply to the very poor.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen calls out those who are protesting the shipment of oil and gas via pipeline as hypocritically favoring railcar transport even though railcar spills are much more commonplace and more dangerous -- and costly. Driessen notes that these same people have protested fracking and for that matter all use of fossil fuels -- even though they continue to rely on fossil fuel products for their own lifestyles.
