U.S. funding dubious science and unfounded fear

Well-known researcher Ron Arnold reports on the cosy relationship between the Italian research group Ramazzini Institute and various federal agencies during the Obama Administration to classify glyphosate and other chemicals as carcinogenic while hiding research results that exonerated the chemical from such claims. The EPA's own scientists have disputed Ramazzini research on methanol -- and now we have learned that the International Agency for Research on Cancer's chief research deliberately withheld findings from studies of 89,000 U.S. farm workers and family members that showed no link between cancer and exposure to glyphosate.

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?

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.

How corrupt is government climate science?

Many have suspected that U.S. political intervention in climate science has corrupted the outcome. The new emergence of an old 1995 document from the U.S. State Department to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change confirms those suspicions, or at least gives the allegation credence enough to ask questions.

The Big Green job-killing machine

The Center for Biological Diversity -- an offshoot of the violent radical group Earth First!, -- has been systematically using the Endangered Species Act to shut down jobs in the timber, mining, and other industries that once were major job suppliers in Western States. Worse, federal judges have been going along with this unwarranted taking of property and income for decades. It is time that this stops.

Property owners stand up to National Park Service bullying

Tom and Kathy Stocklen fought the National Park Service for over 40 years and retired with their property intact, despite repeated efforts, even threats, by NPS bureaucrats to take their land in Michigan's Sleeping Bear Dunes Natioanl Lakeshore. Curiously, the NPS has recently ended four decades of dredging the Platte River, where the Stocklens placed their canoes, for safe navigation. Clearly, Washington thinks that landowners are public nuisances.

Will President Obama’s new drilling policy give the Arctic over to Russian domination?

Is it merely a coincidence that millions of dollars of Russian money have been laundered and forwarded to anti-fossil fuel radical environmentalists to fight exploration and development by the United States of Alaska's vast oil and gas and minerals reserves? While Russia plans to seize the entire Arctic for its own use, the United States shuts down all future development over nearly 20 million acres of land and sea -- for absolutely zero environmental benefit, especially since Russia will likely be able to exploit much of that same territory anyway. Just as bac, Obama did this despite universal opposition from Alaska's elected officials -- robbing the state of much-needed jobs and revenues. Hopefully, this theft and giveaway to Russia can be reversed.

How Obama and his environmental base are planning to eradicate the oil and gas industry

The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee minority (soon to be majority) staff has just released a report, “Setting the Record Straight: Hydraulic Fracturing and America’s Energy Revolution,” which shows how President Obama is coordinating with far-left environmental activists such as the aggressive NRDC and the Sierra Club, along with their millionaire board members, their Hollywood celebrity boosters and their “philanthropic” funders, such as the rabidly anti-fracking Park Foundation, to wage an all-out assault to shut down domestic production of American oil and natural gas. There is hope that this agenda can be derailed in part by the incoming GOP Senate majority and a unified House of Representatives, but the President and his minions will continue their regulatory assault as long as they have the power to thwart the will of Congress and the people.

The Fall of the Wall and All

A 1985 newspaper assignment took me from West Berlin, a rich, vibrant, noisy, stylish, all-night reveling open city with symphony concerts next to live nude girl shows and fancy eateries, like New Orleans’ Bourbon Street on steroids – a glittering capitalist island surrounded by drab communist mediocrity – into East Berlin where I was to report on how the Soviet puppet state really worked.
