Would you bet your paycheck on a weather forecast?

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.

Dirty facts behind Obama’s Clean Power Plan

The Clean Power Plan might be more aptly named the Grab Power Plan -- as its intent is to empower the EPA to grab power over electricity regulation and force a shift toward unproven renewable energy (if it were clearly a better deal, there would be no need for mandates). States are lining up to oppose this power grab, which might result in massive energy shortages long before 2030.

The Environmental Protection-racket Agency

The Environmental Protection Agency has just proposed new regulations for ground-level ozone that are lower in many cases than natural ozone levels. They base this proposal on a discredited study by one scientist from California whose work has been severely criticized, and their "benefits" analysis excludes all costs of imposing the regulations, which would be the most expensive in American history. A 2010 Manufacturers' Alliance/MAPI study calculated that a 60 ppb standard would render 85% to 95% of U.S. counties out of compliance, cost the economy $1 trillion per year, and kill 7.3 million jobs by 2020. CFACT's Paul Driessen says that the new Congress should rein in the EPA using the principle: No data and no integrity result in no regulation and no taxpayer money to impose it.

Job creators sue the federal government over “sue and settle”

For years environmentalists have usurped individual private property rights and thwarted economic development. Now, thanks to Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, it appears that the job creators may have finally learned something from the extreme tactics of groups, like the Wild Earth Guardians and the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), which have been using the courts to their advantage by filing lawsuits against the federal government.
