Researchers have discovered a particular plant virus that can deliver pesticide molecules deeper below the ground, targeting places normally beyond their reach. This has the benefit of limiting a pesticide’s impact on the natural world.
Collin’s most distorted contortion of credulity suggests that increased atmospheric CO2 levels present a plant growth liability. These shelves emptied by Venezuelan Socialism, not your appliances.
Climate alarmists frequently claim global warming will cause crop failures. The predictions, however, rarely come with a definitive date and an objective measuring stick.
By Steve Goreham. Our modern society suffers from “chemophobia." Will insects eat our crops or people? Scientific evidence shows that everyday exposure to synthetic pesticides is negligible and that widespread pesticide fears are unfounded.
Environmental activists have published a study claiming global warming will cause a decline in crop yields because warmer temperatures benefit crop-feeding insects.
It essentially asserts that indigenous, traditional farmers must be shielded from market forces and modern technologies, so that they can continue using ancient, primitive, “culturally appropriate” methods.
Global crop production sets new records virtually every year.
The Green attack on genetically improved crops is deeply unscientific and hurts the environment, the poor and everyone.
When Robert Brace set out to convert pastureland to cropland on his farm in Erie County, little did he know that this simple, age-old farming practice would lead to decades of litigation that has cost him over a million dollars in fines and legal fees.
Two years ago the big scientific news was that increasing CO2 levels were increasing plant productivity around the world. CO2 is the global food supply so this is good news indeed.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen warns that a pending Supreme Court case could leave property owners at the mercy of federal bureaucrats who would have absolute authority to order them to renovate their property to welcome endangered species -- at their own expense, even if the species was not native to the property.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen weighs in on the attempt by the International Agency for Research on Cancer to shut down sales and use of glyphosate despite numerous studies showing that the world's most commonly used herbicide does not cause cancer. Indeed, Driessen notes, even the process by which the IARC made its determination is fatally flawed.
In an article published in The Hill, CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen reports that the 3-2 vote by the Nebraska Public Service Commission to approve a new route through the state for the long-delayed Keystone Pipeline may or may not signal completion of the pipeline is near. Read the excerpt here, and the full article in The Hill.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen recounts how the National Institutes for Environmental Health Sciences has colluded with radicalized international agencies, anti-chemical pressure groups, and trial lawyers to undermine the U.S. regulatory process. Congress is now investigating and may sanction the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Italy's Ramazzini Institute, and other fear mongers who have sabotaged sound science with spurious claims backed by lawsuits.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reports on the disastrous mismanagement of America's Western forests by federal officials and the tremendous cost in human and plant and animal life and quality of life these policies have fostered. As Rep. Tom McClintock says, "These laws have not only failed to improve our forest environment, but they are literally killing our forests."
