Hudson Valley landowners’ 22-year battle against New York land trusts

The fat cats who run land trusts actually believe they are entitled to anyone else's property just because they want it ... and in the case of the former Smitty's Dude Ranch in upstate New York, they have fought low down and dirty over the past 30 years to seize property that 28 years ago was sold, under a deed upheld many times in court, to a couple of modest means. Decency is not in the vocabulary of these modern day robber barons, who finally won a judicial victory after 22 years of fraudulent efforts, ridiculous claims, and other methods designed to destroy the ability of the owners to fight back.

“Climate Hustle” demolishes climate alarmism

Without presenting it to the U.S. Senate, as required by the Constitution, President Obama has signed the Paris climate treaty. He is already using it to further obligate the United States to slash its fossil fuel use, carbon dioxide emissions, and economic growth … control our lives, livelihoods, living standards, and liberties … and redistribute our wealth. Poor, minority, and working class families will suffer most. China, India, and other "developing" economies are under no such obligation, unless and until it is in their interest to do so. For them, compliance is voluntary – and they cannot afford to eliminate the [...]

On climate, we’re manipulated by sleight of hand

People of the world -- you are being hustled into surrendering your prosperity, your personal freedom, and maybe even your life itself to satisfy the cravings of an elitist few for centralized control over virtually every aspect of human life from the cradle to the grave. Fear mongers have become more crazed than the most dedicated jihadists in their zeal to do away with dissenters from their power grab (done in the name of saving the planet from life-giving carbon dioxide). CFACT's new movie, "Climate Hustle," empowers people to resist these gross acts of domination and stand up for freedom and the American dream of a prosperous future. Let May 2 -- when "Climate Hustle" hits theaters in over 200 American cities (and Toronto, Canada) -- be a day of liberation!

Obama targets electric grid for power grab

Now the President Obama has made good on his promise to bankrupt the U.S. coal industry, he (and his potential successors Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders) are poised to do likewise to the nation's oil and gas and nuclear power industries. Given that neither solar nor wind power is 24-7 reliable, this will surely lead both to massive financial ruin and intermittent energy availability in many parts of a very crippled U.S. economy. Worst of all -- this appears to be their vision, their goal -- to bankrupt America and put an end to personal freedom in the process.

Smelling blood in the political water

The great white environmentalist sharks smell blood in the water. It’s gushing from mortally wounded U.S. coal companies that the Obama EPA has gutted as sacrifices on the altar of “dangerous manmade climate change” prevention and other spurious health, ecological, and planetary scares. Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, and other once vibrant coal producers have filed for Chapter 11 protection, shedding some $30 billion in shareholder value and tens of thousands of jobs in their companies and dependent industries. The bloodletting has left communities and states reeling, union pension funds and 401-k plans empty, and the health, welfare, hopes, and dreams of [...]

Earth Day’s anti-fossil fuel focus could plunge millions into green energy poverty

As European nations come to grips with the exorbitant costs of energy subsidies and over-reliance on "green" energy (and build new coal-fired power plants to offset those costs and address the intermittent nature of wind and solar energy), the U.S. has been heading in the opposite direction -- President Obama's onerous Clean Power Plan. Thankfully, the plan is held up in court, as the world is beginning to recognize the enormous costs of complying with the non-binding Paris Climate Agreement. The question remains, though, whether America will go the way of California, which already has electricity prices 40% above the national average and the highest retail gasoline prices in the U.S.?

RICO for government climate deniers?

Throwing the First Amendment down the toilet, 17 state attorneys general (Democrats) have conspired to conduct an Inquisition against climate realists in order to protect the $1.5 trillion climate crisis industry from being exposed as a total fraud on the world's population -- one that is responsible for energy poverty in Africa that takes countless lives, a growing energy poverty in Europe that is killing tens of thousands, and so many more dire consequences. Having lost the battle to attack the credibility of dissenting scientists, the plan now is just to lock them up or fine them and disallow any public exposition of their research. This plan is not going to work, promises CFACT's Paul Driessen and coauthor Ron Arnold.

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.

Deep-sixing another useful climate myth

The "97% consensus" on global warming by climate scientists is a fabrication, a useful myth now being used by lawyers to silence the much larger percentage of scientists and commentators who disagree with the so-called consensus. But CFACT's upcoming film "Climate Hustle" will shatter this so-called consensus, and it is in theaters on May 2.
