Will the Supreme Court apply the constitutional brakes to EPA's emissions regulations while there's still an economy left to regulate?
Watch out would-be carbon taxers. You're signed up for what the left-wing Guardian newspaper just termed "the killing fields of Australian politics."
In this special report, CFACT senior policy advisor Paul Driessen examines carbon dioxide and its many benefits. While global warming alarmists rail against it, carbon dioxide is actually the "gas of life," without which life on earth would perish.
When it comes to urging people to lower their carbon footprint, no organization is more outspoken than the United Nations. But is this international body hypocritical?
Those convinced of man-made global warming believe that as carbon dioxide levels rise, there should be a corresponding increase in flood levels. But according to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey, floods in the U.S. have not shown the measurable increase that researchers expected to see.
Is carbon dioxide a dangerous pollutant? Well not according to Princeton University physicist William Happer and Apollo 17 astronaut Harrison Schmitt . . .
Despite the man-made global warming fear movement’s clarion call of alarm, many scientists are dismissing the 400ppm level of carbon dioxide as a non-event. Scientists point out that there are literally hundreds of factors that govern Earth’s climate and temperature – not just CO2.
When you hear about melting glaciers in Greenland, you probably think this a result of manmade global warming. But more and more scientists are coming to an understanding that Greenland’s ice sheet has been naturally melting for millennia. . .
In news that could please oil companies and Green activists alike, the U.S. Department of Energy released a report claiming that using carbon dioxide to enhance oil recovery could be beneficial for the economy and the environment.
Average planetary temperatures haven’t budged in 16 years. Hurricanes and strong tornadoes are at or near their lowest ebb in decades. Global sea ice is back to normal, Arctic ice is nearly normal, and the Antarctic icepack continues to grow. The rate of sea level rise remains what it was in 1900.
Those concerned about global warming have recently been pushing the idea of a new tax on carbon emissions. But according to a recent study by the Heritage Foundation, such a carbon tax would cause serious economic harm without even making a dent in global emissions.
Would a carbon tax, now proposed by Green enthusiasts and revenue-hungry politicians, be good for the economy? Derrick Morgan of the Heritage Foundation says no, and here explains why:
For those who believe humans are causing catastrophic climate change – or simply crave control over the world’s energy and “unsustainable” economic systems – Doha resulted in bitter failure.
When American voters reelected President Obama, they also returned his EPA, Interior and Energy Departments, and wide-ranging agenda for “fundamentally transforming” our nation. This will mean not only cementing Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, higher taxes, and rampant spending. It will also bring more disputes over energy and environmental regulations, the vanguard of Mr. Obama’s determined campaign to eliminate hydrocarbons that power our economy and embrace more “green” energy. The conflict will be fought primarily on six battlegrounds.
Could global warming destroy the Amazon rainforest? Well according to the World Climate Report, recent studies in leading scientific journals spell trouble for such global warming alarmism.
