Ethical Oil vs. Conflict Oil

CFACT’s Marc Morano was at our Light Brigade counter protest to Sierra Club & 350.org’s climate rally on February 17, where the Green protestors were opposing the Keystone XL pipeline.

The misdirected tears of the Philippines

This week Naderev M. Sano of the Phillipines delegation made a tear-filled speech to COP 18 in Doha, Qatar.

Rothbard and Rucker on Environment, Development and Africa in “European View”

In their article, David Rothbard and Craig Rucker urge EU policy makers to ensure that their new policies towards Africa will be beneficial in particular to African nations that were once European colonies. "The answer to Africa’s needs, however, is not more handouts or even aid forgiveness, as was recommended at the June 2005 G8 summit in Gleneagles, Scotland.
