The lies that governments, the United Nations, and the International Monetary Fund tell about the climate are about the money they can extract from citizens who must be kept frightened enough to pay taxes on their use of energy.
In every way possible the Greens continue to attack the nation’s and the world’s food supply. The result will harm people with no meaningful benefit to the environment. The EPA’s pesticide bans are not about protecting health or the environment, but about advancing Green ideology. Their insidious effect will be to increase sickness from an ancient enemy of mankind -- insect and rodent pests.
Climate campaigners sow fear in the classroom, the newsroom and in government. Can facts beat fear?
Is it just for EPA to pay for the Green-Left's "environmental justice" conference? Redistribution, anyone?
Alan Caruba gives a huge plug to Heartland Institute and its 9th International Conference on Climate Change -- which convenes July 7-9 in Las Vegas. Bet you won't hear much about this even on the nightly news.
Alan Caruba outlines the many ways the Obama Administration (which includes the EPA) is stifling U.S. energy development and thereby costing Americans jobs, energy security, and of course tax revenues -- all the while raising the price of energy and therefore just about everything else we purchase. The situation, he notes, is exacerbated by a compliant, virtually useless media and by public educators all too willing to parrot the "official line."
What is WOTUS? “Under this plan, there’d be no body of water in America—including mud puddles and canals—that wouldn’t be at risk from job-destroying federal regulation,”
Radical Greens invented the lie that carbon dioxide is a pollutant, the EPA picked up the lie, and the U.S. Supreme Court formalized the lie as official U.S. policy. The results, as noted by Alan Caruba, are devastating for the U.S. economy, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce agrees, and shudders at what lies ahead.
The Obama-Kerry climate policy is based on computer-driven science fiction and ignores real-world climate events, says Alan Caruba. These two and their minions are pushing America over the cliff with plans to spend trillions, stifle economic growth, and leave Americans a much more risky financial future.
The continuing drama of a President willing to push climate alarmism continues with the release of a report, the National Climate Assessment. It is a repeat of all the inaccuracies that have been generated by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
Michael Mann is suing The National Review, commentator Mark Steyn, and others, claiming their truthful reporting on his shenanigans in creating the false image of a hockey stick to purportedly show massive human influence on climate. According to Charles C. W. Cooke, writing in the current issue of National Review, Mann is assertying "a narrow form of libel that American law prohibits." Hopefully, the Court will agree.
The U.S. Supreme Court has been compliant with the EPA's and Obama Administration's goal of shuttering all coal-fired power plants in the U.S., most recently with the decision okaying the agency's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule. Such decisions, along with other Obama Administration ploys, will surely leave the U.S. with power shortages in the near future -- by design. Yet Alan Caruba holds out hope - because of the strength of the private sector to overcome government mismanagement and even oppression.
Alan Caruba argues that President Obama is waging a real war against conventional U.S. energy sources -- coal, oil. and natural gas -- but in ways that benefit his friends and punish his enemies. His solar initiatives have mostly been money laundering operations (at least, effectively) like Solyndra; his continued stalling on the Keystone XL pipeline benefits billionaire Warren Buffett; and his administration has issued the fewest number of onshore oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits on federal lands since the government began maintaining leasing and drilling permit records.
The media will engage in an orgy of environmental tall tales and the usual end-of-the-world predictions. It will scare the heck out of youngsters and bore the heck out of anyone old enough to know better.
What with the failure of the war on carbon dioxide to take hold, anti-energy zealots had to find another enemy -- and this time, the enemy is methane from cow farts. The U.S. dairy industry is about to be besieged as viciously as the coal and oil and gas industries have been smeared and demonized even since the U.S. Senate rejected the Kyoto protocols. This war will get ugly before most Americans even realize it is happening, or that their prosperity is the chief target.
