EPA has been holding public hearings on coal energy around the country. CFACT's Duggan Flanakin, Bonner Cohen, and Paul Driessen took the microphone in Dallas, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.to ensure some hard facts make into EPA's record. CFACT Collegians brought the fight to sessions in Atlanta and Seattle. EPA's new rules which, which effectively shut down every coal-fired power plant in the country at a cost of hundreds of thousands of jobs and forcing electricity rates to skyrocket -- are a very bad investment and should be thrown down the toilet.

Senator Mark Warner asked CFACT via the National Journal: "How will energy productivity jump start the economy?" Let us count the ways!
In 2012, it seemed CFACT went everywhere, worked flat out and hardly took a breather. Our research was thorough, our spokesmen drove the radicals to distraction, our Collegians kept expanding and it seemed like Climate Depot's Marc Morano lived on television. We aired our 5,000th Just the Facts radio broadcast. We educated, we innovated we reported, we adopted villages, we gathered scientists and scholars and we took the battle to distant shores. When we found closed minds we innovated and even entertained. We put masks on UN delegates to "capture" their CO2. Last year we dropped a British Lord from a plane. This year he flew from a camel. After all, we're CFACT! We'll do anything to share our message of better lives for people and a sparkling clean environment - through freedom. Here are some of our favorite CFACT moments from 2012.
By Paul Driessen and Duggan FlanakinThe Future We Want -- the theme of the UN's Rio+20 conference on sustainable development, outlined a “common vision” for planetary “sustainable development,” as proclaimed by the “Organizing Partners of the Major Group of NGOs,” to guide the taxpayer-funded Rio+20 summit that ended last week in disarray and acrimony. The activist organizations that cobbled the document together filled it with hundreds of platitudes and pseudo-solutions to global warming cataclysms, newly reconstituted as threats to resource depletion and biodiversity – and presented as standards and mandates for countries, communities and corporations. The terms “sustainable development,” “sustainable” and [...]
‘The Future We Want’ offered sustained power and money grabs in name of sustainability By Paul Driessen and Duggan Flanakin The Future We Want outlined a “common vision” for planetary “sustainable development,” as proclaimed by the “Organizing Partners of the Major Group of NGOs,” to guide the taxpayer-funded Rio+20 summit that ended last week in disarray and acrimony.

The NGO Major Group Organizing Partners have finalized their key document for the Rio+20 Summit. "The Future We Want” outlines the common vision for “sustainable development” throughout the planet sought by those nongovernmental organizations - mostly social and environmental activist groups. There are many noble sentiments in its 283 statements. There also is much that raises serious concerns. “Sustainable,” “sustainability” and “sustainable development” appear in the text an astounding 390 times. Like “abracadabra,” these amorphous words are supposed to transform even corrupt societies into Gardens of Eden under United Nations auspices. They will use less, pollute less, be sustainable, get along and save species and the entire planet from their worst enemy: human beings.
Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” He gave a clue to exactly what he had in mind when he told now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
PAUL DRIESSEN & DUGGAN FLANAKIN Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” One clue to what he meant was his comment to now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” Not necessarily – especially when activists, regulators, politicians and ruling elites do all they can to ensure there is less and less wealth to spread around. Just this week, the Civil Society Reflection Group on Global Development Perspectives released a new report to the United Nations Rio+20 Earth Summit on Sustainable Development. The executive [...]
By Duggan FlanakinA CFACT advisor appeared as a mystery guest during day two of the International Conference on Climate Change, hosted by the Heartland Institute and co-sponsored by CFACT. Lord Monckton, who will be a lead advisor during CFACT's mission to Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Earth Summit next month, outlined twelve logical fallacies he said are characteristic of global warming alarmists -- everything from ad hominem attacks to ignorance. Earlier, Lord Monckton had engaged in a spirited debate on the sidewalk in front of the conference hotel with about 30 Occupy protestors, and even convinced one of them [...]
On January 19th, President Obama announced his decision to deny an application by Trans-Canada for construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline that would have brought crude oil and tens of thousands of jobs from the tar sands of Alberta and North Dakota's Bakken field to refineries in Texas and Louisiana.
