The battle for our grasslands and livestock

Australian rancher Viv Forbes and some colleagues have published a report urging a climate exit (Clexit) to stop the insane assault on farming and ranching that is being orchestrated by billionaires in the name of saving the environment. The real goal is total control over all human activity.

GE seeks “greener” pastures in coal

General Electric, one of the world’s largest suppliers of electrical power plant equipment, is all fired up about large markets for new coal-fired generation in India and China as America’s shut down. This may seem quite a turnaround for a company which has been characterized by the National Center for Public Policy Research as “the poster boy for crony capitalism and corporate America’s green energy cheerleader." After all, GE had previously assured investors that coal was on its way out. Its “ecomagination” campaign launched in 2005 focused the company’s future on an “Age of Gas” powered by their heavy-duty turbines along [...]

Olympic-sized climate propaganda

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen shows how the blathering video shown at the Rio Olympics opening ceremony is replete with lies and distortions -- and speculates that the intent was to refocus attention away from the Zika virus, polluted water, crime, and other bad news coming out of Rio and as usual to scare people into surrendering their freedoms.

America blighted by industrial wind

The folly of industrial wind is nowhere more evident than in New York State, which for decades has gotten half of its electricity from clean nuclear plants and hydroelectric (dams). Thus, the $176 billion in wind subsidies (for which the wind companies spend $20 million a year on lobbying) is in reality a means to support the Ponzi scheme that enriches Big Wind, Big Banks, and Big Politicians. It is time to turn off the fan.

Climate skeptics face Senate inquisition

Galileo has lots of modern-day companions. Woe be unto those who dare to doubt that the sun orbits around Planet Gore as pontiffs of doom have decreed. That’s exactly the 17th Century time warp scenario that played out last week on the Senate floor as Chief Inquisitor Sheldon Whitehouse (D, RI) and 18 fellow jurists intoned judgments against dozens of organizations for sins of “denial blocking action on climate.” Most of those sinful deniers are nonprofit conservative think tanks, including several that I am sinfully very proud to associate with. And nope, like most of those other sinful deniers, I don’t get [...]

Is the green’s “Daddy Warbucks” helping the planet or himself?

The bloom should be off the rose that is the premise that Tom Steyer is a saint for promoting green energy -- when in reality he is behind a major scheme in which financiers "qualify" homeowners to install solar panels, with the solar credits (taxpayer dollars) accruing not to the individual but to the financiers (Steyer and his cronies). They are going to make billions -- all for a small investment in fear and hope.

Methane mendacity – and madness

The Obama Administration drive to eliminate U.S. use of fossil fuels is nothing short of insanity (or a devious plot to weaken the U.S. against foreign foes). The results of these policies will either be catastrophic destruction of American cropland, fuel rationing (and maybe even vehicle rationing), and economic collapse. Meanwhile, so-called "developing" countries will get a free pass so that the overall impact on the environment will likely be negative. But the politicians and their friends will get rich rewards and not be bound by the diktats they impose on others.

Rooftop solar companies will only play if the game is stacked in their favor

The past couple of weeks have highlighted the folly of the energy policies favored by left-leaning advocacy agencies that, rather than allowing consumers and markets to choose, require government mandates and subsidies. Three major, but very different, solar entities—none of which would exist without such political preference—are now facing their demise.  Even with the benefit of tax credits, low-interest loans, and cash grants that state and federal governments have bestowed on them, the solar industry is struggling. We’ve seen Abengoa—which I’ve followed for years—file for bankruptcy. Ivanpah, the world’s biggest solar power tower project in the California desert, is threatened with [...]
