CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen exposes the unscientific shenanigans of the International Agency for Research on Cancer that are under Congressional investigation for scientific bias, secrecy, and corruption -- and how the IARC, much of whose funding is from the U.S. Congress, has arrogantly obfuscated, stalled, and even demanded immunity.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen sings an ode to the benefits of federalism and other gifts from the founders in an article inspired by a jazz combo. He reports that the 2016 election was swung in "flyover country" out of a growing frustration with an ever-expanding federal government that had largely discarded the concept of federalism and was dictating too many aspects of our lives.
Heartland Institute Senior Fellow (and CFACT advisor) H. Sterling Burnett, Ph.D., reviews the achievements of President Trump's energy and environmental policies at the end of his first year in office, a list he says indicates "a tremendous start" -- as evidenced by the stock market, job growth, unemployment decline, business investment, and consumer confidence -- all helping to "make America great again."
Blue State residents are turning blue from the cold that their solar heaters and wind turbines cannot rescue them from -- but Blue State politicians insist on blaming fossil fuels for making their residents cold (global warming actually means colder winters, right?). CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen points out the hypocrisies of the leftists who seek to win through censorship of factual information and opinions not in alignment with their fantasized story lines about climate and more.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition trace the history of the "global warming" scam, which is founded on equating carbon dioxide with carbon to give the public an image of carbon dioxide as "dirty." They cite both Canadian and American politicians and scientists who have advanced this false narrative.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris explain the difference between weather, climate, and meteorology as part of their denunciation of climate alarmists who misuse and even alter historic scientific data in their vain attempts to "prove" their global warming theories that are the fuel for the globalist elite's efforts to consolidate power into their hands. Much of their success stems from the kinship between environmentalism and consolidation of state power over the individual. Freedom lovers, therefore, must be vigilant to stop these power hungry bullies in their tracks.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen wishes the entire world a happy time of thanksgiving -- for the fossil fuels, hydroelectric power, and other contributions to reliable, affordable energy that has powered a dramatic shift in life expectancy and standards of living and world health, lifting billions out of poverty. He further challenges us to extend these blessings to the billions who even today lack the blessings of energy, in part because of elitist, eco-imperialist refusal to underwrite the financing of anything but renewable energy that is unreliable, expensive, and only in some cases the best (short-term) option.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen, a Virginia resident, laments the direction that newly elected Governor Ralph Northam is taking the people of the state -- into restrictions on carbon dioxide that include cap-and-trade emissions buying and selling -- and other foolish schemes that will harm the poor and lower middle classes the most and do little or nothing to change the Earth's climate.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris report from Bonn that the IPCC is now resorting to even more spurious "science" than ever in support of its wildly alarmist claims of climate catastrophe around the corner. They cite a vast lack of real-world data to support these claims, noting that there are no weather stations representing about 85% of the Earth's surface area.
CFACT policy analyst Larry Bell reports that President Trump's EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has dealt a death blow to the scurrilous practice of the EPA colluding with interest groups to alter public policy through staged litigation that denies opponents of their punitive schemes no opportunity for their own day in court.
Analyst David Wojick reports that the Climate Science Special Report, soon to be released by the federal Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) as Volume I of the National Climate Assessment, is an alarmist document that would undermine all efforts to rein in the climate monarchy. Wojick calls for a Red Team review of the CSSR that would be entered as an official critique of the CSSR.
A climate pressure group wants a Canadian law enforcement agency to prosecute the International Climate Science Coalition and other U.S. and Canadian organizations for “misrepresenting the science” on climate change.
Can the heavily politicized Goddard Institute for Space Studies be reformed?
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen rebuts arguments from alarmists that recent hurricanes are evidences of the damages of global warming. Indeed, Driessen shows how the use of fossil fuels has dramatically reduced the cost in human life from hurricanes and other severe weather events.
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell refutes the claims of alarmist activists that hurricanes Harvey and Irma were "enhanced" as a result of climate change -- and shows that the same alarmists had made the same statements in prior years regarding prior hurricanes -- and then there was a 12-year lull.
