"The President should stand behind loyal public servants like Scott Pruitt or suffer a chilling effect on his Administration's ability to recruit and retain talented Americans with the courage to make positive change."
They're toying with raising the federal gas tax to help pay for the President's infrastructure plan.
The U.S. District Court of Northern California blocked the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) postponement of an Obama-era rule regulating royalties paid by energy companies on federal and tribal lands.
The politicized federal "Climate Science Special Report" presents a perfect opportunity for red team blue team fact and science checking.
The Department of the Interior will announce recommendations to President Donald Trump Thursday on whether to rollback or remove national monument status from 21 designations.
The hard economic and environmental realities of wind, solar, and biofuels “alternatives” to fossil fuels will likely awaken other leaders – and persuade other nations to Exit Paris.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell notes that even Fox News' Chris Willace has drunk the Kool-Aid, as he assaulted President Trump for refusing to subject American citizens to the whims of a UN agreement that intentionally targeted the U.S. for punishment. Apparently, there are a large number of Americans who still want to be horsewhipped for the sins of their forebears (which while vile were universal at the time). Wallace, it appears, has joined the Jellyfish backbone crowd.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen explains that "(r)ecent science and climate marches demonstrated how misinformed, indoctrinated, politicized and anti-Trump these activists are – and how indifferent about condemning millions in industrialized nations and billions in developing countries to green energy poverty. It’s as if reality, truth, discussion, and debate have become irrelevant where feelings, leftist dogma, climate science, or public policies are involved. On the climate front, at stake are $100 billion a year in reparation funds for poor countries, $7 trillion a year for companies that want to build “sustainable low-carbon” energy systems, and boundless power for politicians and bureaucrats who want to control economic growth, livelihoods and living standards.
The Trump Administration has an opportunity to reverse overreach by the EPA and other federal agencies -- but Congress and even the Courts have a role to play, according to CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell. Indeed. even the simplest actions by the Pruitt-led EPA or the Trump Administation in general will likely be challenged in federal courts by those with vested interests in the status quo.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen explains the dangers to the U.S. economy from the wholly unaccountable Financial Stability Board, created by the Obama Administration to help pressure groups with a political/financial stake in the outcome to identify, target, stigmatize, harass, and intimidate any entities that they deem are too involved in fossil fuels or insufficiently invested in renewable energy and sustainable businesses.
Many liberals went into denial, outrage, and riot mode after November 8. Now they’re having meltdown over President-Elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees with climate and environmental responsibilities. Former Texas Governor Rick Perry at Energy, Oklahoma AG Scott Pruitt for EPA, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson at State, Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke at Interior. As Department of Agriculture secretary, and multiple assistant, deputy assistant, and other senior level positions are filled, the meltdown will likely raise sea levels by several feet. It’s even worse than “white supremacists” and “Russian hackers” rigging and stealing the election. Having [...]
One of the biggest areas of change in government behavior under the Trump Administration may well be the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency -- where Scott Pruitt intends to return the agency to reliance on sound science that balances costs and benefits.
Ever since the elections, our media, schools, workplaces, and houses of worship have presented stories showcasing the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Liberal-progressive snowflakes are wallowing in denial, anger, and depression. They cannot work, attend class, or take exams. They need safe “healing” spaces, Play-Doh, comfort critters, and counseling. Too many throw tirades equating Donald Trump with Adolph Hitler, while too few are actually moving to Canada, New Zeeland, or Jupiter after solemnly promising they would. Nouveau grief is also characterized by the elimination of bargaining and acceptance – and their replacement by two new stages: intolerance [...]
CFACT policy advisor Marita Noon announces she is retiring her "Energy Makes America Great!" platform (at least for now), as the election of Donald Trump signifies that the changes she has labored for may soon be coming to pass. On the other hand, maybe she is being groomed for a bigger platform.
The election of Donald Trump provides an excellent opportunity to rein in the EPA and other federal regulatory agencies that have joyfully far exceeded their constitutional and statutory mandates and done more to stifle the growth of the U.S. economy than any other arm of government. Cleaning house at the EPA, according to CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen, will by itself do much to jumpstart the U.S. economy.
