Poland recognizes the real global warming agenda

One might say that the good people of Warsaw are Poles apart from the UN's view of fossil fuels, which amounts to an outright condemnation of coal and suspicion of oil and natural gas. CFACT President got perhaps the warmest reception of his life when he spoke at a Polish independence day celebration that was also broadcast live to millions more on Polish national television. His message was simple: the UN's clearly stated goal is worldwide wealth redistribution and a UN-headed global government -- and the war on carbon is not about a cleaner environment or a more prosperous society at all.

Global warming to increase reptile IQ?

You've heard about global warming supposedly harming polar bears, but how about making reptiles smarter?

And on his farm he had a . . . tiger?

When you think of farm animals, no doubt chickens, cows, and sheep come to mind. But how about tigers? Well believe it or not, some conservationists are proposing the creation of tiger farms to help stem the demand for tiger parts in what is now a bustling global black market.

Armed eco-force shows up in Alaska to test the water

Way up in the Alaskan wilderness is a place called Chicken where 17 full-time residents and a few dozen seasonal staff work at small, family-run gold mines. So it was more than a little shocking when eight armed men from a federal Environmental Crimes Taskforce showed up in full body armor to check the water quality?

EPA admits no benefits from new coal plant rules

The EPA recently announced its first-ever rules on the amount of carbon dioxide that can be emitted from new power plants. But while many Green spokesmen and global warming believers hailed this as a major breakthrough, the EPA itself says the proposed rule will yield no actual emissions reductions or benefits whatsoever over the next 10 years.
