• Climate marchers all wet

    The “March for Science” was a “March for Silence” on real climate facts, and a rain-soaked but well-publicized call to keep the federal dollars rolling, as long as they keep going in the wrong direction.

  • Climate accord withdrawal divides White House

    Earlier this month, a Politico headline reported a “White House showdown on Paris deal set for next week,” to resolve “simmering tensions” regarding “a major point of dispute between the moderate and nationalist wings of the White House.” That planned April 18 meeting was subsequently postponed indefinitely due to top official “scheduling conflicts.” Reuters reported […]

  • Solar ovens and sustained poverty for Africa

    Ugandan activist Steven Lyazi argues that, while wind and solar and biomass energy do provide some relief for many Africans, they are not true substitutes for round-the-clock reliable energy such as is found in First World countries with electric power grids fueled by coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy — all of which are in abundant supply in various African nations. Westerners tend to think it is just fine for Africans to live in poverty, especially energy poverty, while they enjoy the benefits of a fossil- and nuclear-fuel economy.

  • Green energy poverty week

    April 22 is Earth Day, the March for Science, and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-­free enterprise on the inside).

  • REAL science must guide policy

    As CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen points out, REAL science is easily distinguished by fake science. His latest evidence compares the testimonies of three real scientists (Dr, Roger Pielke, Jr., Dr. Judith Curry, and Dr. John Christie) versus heralded pseudo-scientist Michael Mann (who was caught cherry-picking data to “prove” his “hockey stick” thesis) at a recent House Science Committee hearing. Pielke, Curry, and Christie all described the science that lies behind their stances, while Mann resorted to an ad hominem attack on “climate deniers.”

  • The mouse that won’t stop roaring

    Why did the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service waste over 100 million taxpayer dollars to save the Preble’s meadow jumping mouse from extinction when the little critters are alive and well from Colorado to Alaska?

  • Congress, courts must help Trump drain EPA swamp

    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.
