Politifact disgraces itself on U.S. emissions ruling

Politifact justified its ruling that EPA is telling a half-falsehood in stating emissions are down under President Trump by stating emissions – under the booming Trump economy – are not falling quite as quickly as they did under the stagnant Obama economy. The fact is U.S. emissions continued to decline -- just as EPA reported.

One year anniversary of Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord

“What President Trump really did was declare an end to the war on affordable energy for Americans and signal that the world’s greatest republic was no longer going to going to stoop to extra-constitutional means to join governments around the world in seeking new ways to tax their citizens."

A better climate at State

State Department bureaucrats hoping to outlast the President, or do an end run around him to keep America in the Paris Climate Accord, just lost a great deal of ground. That's good news for those of us who care about sound science and constructive energy policies.

Lease the OCS – to benefit all Americans

As CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen explains, federal revenues from offshore drilling fell from $18 billion in 2008 to just $2.5 billion in 2016 thanks largely to Obama era policies while state revenues from closer-in rigs went up. The Trump-Zinke proposal would open federal waters (outside the 3-mile limit) to drilling, with huge potential revenues and contributions to national security. The planning and evaluation process, Driessen argues, should not be impeded.

Burnett: Trump on energy and the environment, year 1

Heartland Institute Senior Fellow (and CFACT advisor) H. Sterling Burnett, Ph.D., reviews the achievements of President Trump's energy and environmental policies at the end of his first year in office, a list he says indicates "a tremendous start" -- as evidenced by the stock market, job growth, unemployment decline, business investment, and consumer confidence -- all helping to "make America great again."

Frigid cold is why we need dependable energy

While China, India, and other nations are building new coal-fired power plants, the United States, which nearly a quarter of the world's coal reserves, is still following the path laid out by President Obama of phasing out coal production. Canadian analyst Tom Harris, whose home province of Ontario has banned all coal-fired power generation, explains that this stems from the myth that carbon dioxide is as dirty as coal.
