Absurd “loss & damage” policy advances at UN’s Bonn climate summit

By |2018-05-10T18:39:27-04:00May 10th, 2018|Climate, Conferences|

Loss and damage is diplomatic code for the idea that the developed countries, especially America, should pay the developing countries for the bad things that they attribute to climate change. This includes pretty much all bad weather, plus the supposed effects of sea level rise, and who knows what else.

Now comes the hard, fun, and vital part

The election of Donald Trump provides an excellent opportunity to rein in the EPA and other federal regulatory agencies that have joyfully far exceeded their constitutional and statutory mandates and done more to stifle the growth of the U.S. economy than any other arm of government. Cleaning house at the EPA, according to CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen, will by itself do much to jumpstart the U.S. economy.

A UN and tribal takeover?

By Lawrence Kogan A massive 792-page Senate Energy Committee bill threatens to authorize federal bureaucrats to cede extensive control over Western states' water and property rights, energy development, and forest management to Native American tribes, local UN sustainability councils, and radical environmentalist groups. Certain provisions could undermine the foundations of our nation from within our nation. S.2012, the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2016, incorporates some 393 amendments. Incredibly, it is being driven forward by U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and other Members of Congress behind closed doors. Probably very few have read the bill in its entirety. Virtually [...]

The Renewable Fuel Standard: “set up for fraud”

By |2016-08-02T10:33:19-04:00August 1st, 2016|CFACT Insights|

Marita Noon shows how the Renewable Fuel Standard, which mandates the use of biodiesel (and ethanol) in increasing amounts, was "set up for fraud" -- and that many criminals have found the RFS as a lucrative vehicle for quick profit. Some are getting caught, but the only real way to stop this is to sunset or outright repeal the RFS.

What’s up with prices at the pump and why it could be a good sign

By |2016-05-03T03:35:29-04:00May 3rd, 2016|CFACT Insights|

All of us loved paying less than $2 a gallon at the pump. The AAA reports: “Americans paid cheapest quarterly gas prices in 12 years”—which resulted in savings of nearly $10 billion compared to the same period last year. However, oil (and, therefore gasoline) has been creeping upward since the February low—topping $45 a barrel, a high for the year. And that could be a good thing. While low prices at the pump have been a boon to consumers, the plunge in oil prices has been a bust for American producers. Throughout the past 20 months, crude oil prices have dropped [...]

Federal wetlands mitigation bank scam threatens popular California golf course

By |2016-01-29T14:58:48-05:00January 29th, 2016|CFACT Insights|

A beloved golf course in the picturesque Gird Valley north of San Diego, California, may soon fall victim to an elaborate federal wetlands mitigation scheme that can simultaneously destroy a community’s recreation area while lining the pockets of well-positioned third parties.   For decades, the Fallbrook Golf Course has been a recreational and ecological jewel that has attracted golfers, joggers, bird watchers, dog walkers, and nature lovers.  Located near the Gird Valley Preserve and Live Oak Park, the golf course offers a range of habitat for a wide variety of local and migratory birds as well as other wildlife.  The regulation-length, [...]

COP 21 extra innings: China and India waiting for Obama to fold

By |2015-12-11T22:37:37-05:00December 11th, 2015|Climate|

Despite a round of telephone diplomacy between the White House, Chinese President Xi and Indian Prime Minister Modi, China and India appear prepared to stand pat. They expect Obama's eagerness to claim a climate agreement as part of his legacy will lead him to fold on issues of substantive U.S. interest. That seems a strong bet.
