End the ‘war on coal’

New Zealander Bryan Leyland and Canadian Tom Harris, both of the International Climate Science Coalition, argue that the United States is setting a bad example and harming its own people -- and those in developing nations -- by continuing the EPA's war on coal, nuclear energy, and natural gas. Wind and solar have major problems with reliability, cost, and adverse health and environmental impacts that their proponents gloss over, whereas emissions from modern, highly efficient coal-fired power plants with stack gas cleanup consist almost entirely of water, CO2, and nitrogen.

Avalanches of global warming alarmism

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.

Agitators, regulators, and predators on the prowl

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen reports on the legal and political war against glyphosate -- a pesticide claimed to be a "possible" carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer despite repeated peer-reviewed studies showing the opposite is true. The IARC finding was exposed as fraudulent by two Reuters reporters, for ignoring contrary evidence, manufacturing evidence, and suppressing access to their "research."

Looking for a Big Easy windfall

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen explains how the election of trial lawyer buddy John Bel Edwards as Governor of Louisiana has paved the way for Green lawsuits against oil and gas companies that are nothing more than shakedowns -- claiming the energy industry as a whole is responsible for coastal land erosion in the state.

DC Swamp denizens strike back

Thanks to the efforts of Big Corn and other lobbyists, the American people will continue to be required to dilute their gasoline and diesel fuel (and their miles per gallon) with ethanol and biodiesel -- in increasing amounts. CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen recounts how the renewables mandates are harmful to the economy, the environment, and many of the vehicles that do not run well with these additives. One day, the people will win this war against harmful mandates -- just not this day.

Pruitt’s EPA ends “sue and settle” gravy train sham

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.

Trying to perpetuate alarmist climate “science”

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.

The EPA’s crooked prosecutors

CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen makes a strong case for full reversal of the EPA's "endangerment finding" it used to attack the coal industry and ultimately all fossil fuel energy -- the EPA lied, falsified documents, and excluded contradictory testimony from the hearings to ensure that fossil fuels did not get a fair trial.

EPA endangerment finding endangers USA

The U.S. Supreme Court fell for junk science when it approved the EPA's "finding" that carbon dioxide is the chief driver of global climate change, notes CFACT advisor Dennis T. Avery. The EPA models have all been proven false using historical and current data, and thus there is no scientific underpinning for this jobs-killing, energy-crushing decision. The hope is that, with Justice Neil Gorsuch now on the bench, the Court will overturn its own "Endangerment" finding.

Transparency critical to getting science, regulations right

CFACT science and policy advisor H. Sterling Burnett of the Heartland Institute reports that the EPA (and other federal agencies) skew the real cost-benefit numbers in promoting massive regulations. One example: While the Obama Clean Power Plan might have saved 21,000 lives (as the EPA claimed), the rules would also also resulted in from 102,500 to 164,000 early deaths. The HONEST Act hopes to correct these discrepancies.
