Earlier this month, a Politico headline reported a "White House showdown on Paris deal set for next week," to resolve "simmering tensions" regarding "a major point of dispute between the moderate and nationalist wings of the White House." That planned April 18 meeting was subsequently postponed indefinitely due to top official "scheduling conflicts." Reuters reported a White House official saying that Trump aides will later "discuss the options, with the goal of providing a recommendation to the President about the path forward." Contentions surrounding various options revolve around three primary issues: Whether the U.S. should opt out of the Obama administration’s [...]
As CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen points out, REAL science is easily distinguished by fake science. His latest evidence compares the testimonies of three real scientists (Dr, Roger Pielke, Jr., Dr. Judith Curry, and Dr. John Christie) versus heralded pseudo-scientist Michael Mann (who was caught cherry-picking data to "prove" his "hockey stick" thesis) at a recent House Science Committee hearing. Pielke, Curry, and Christie all described the science that lies behind their stances, while Mann resorted to an ad hominem attack on "climate deniers."
CFACT advisor Larry Bell asks the rhetorical question -- Will the climate fanatics tone down their rhetoric given the lack of evidence of climate catastrophe? Indeed, though nearly every single fear-filled prediction of theirs has failed to occur, they will not be shamed into silence as long as the worldwide "science" community enjoys the financial benefits of parroting the party line.
Yety another new "study" promises global disasters of biblical proportions if the U.S. does not unilaterally stop using fossil fuels (and indeed, must subsidize fossil fuels in India and China). But CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen exposes the buffoonery of the so-called Expert Market report - the latest in a long series of computer-driven fake reports that are crafted solely with the intent to frighten people into submission and never matching predictions with actual recorded data.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen demonstrates how the inappropriate, politicized fixation on so-called "climate science" is not even science since it is an opinion demanding a positive conclusion and how this is both teaching bad research habits but also starving much-needed research that can yield valuable results.
New research by Dr. Roger Bezdek shows that excessive groundwater pumping, not manmade "global warming," is the primary cause of subsidence in coastal areas studied -- subsidence that gives the false appearance of sea level rise. The best way to protect these coastal lands is to stop or sharply curtail groundwater pumping that collapses water tables and leads all too often to saltwater intrusion.
Ever since the elections, our media, schools, workplaces, and houses of worship have presented stories showcasing the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Liberal-progressive snowflakes are wallowing in denial, anger, and depression. They cannot work, attend class, or take exams. They need safe “healing” spaces, Play-Doh, comfort critters, and counseling. Too many throw tirades equating Donald Trump with Adolph Hitler, while too few are actually moving to Canada, New Zeeland, or Jupiter after solemnly promising they would. Nouveau grief is also characterized by the elimination of bargaining and acceptance – and their replacement by two new stages: intolerance [...]
The 2016 election marks a turning around of U.S. energy policy back toward true "all of the above," with a focus first on using domestic oil, natural gas, and coal resources -- and other energy sources -- to keep the price of energy low, helping consumers and attracting business development. Exploiting domestic resources also creates jobs -- which the American people have demanded.
The election of Donald Trump provides an excellent opportunity to rein in the EPA and other federal regulatory agencies that have joyfully far exceeded their constitutional and statutory mandates and done more to stifle the growth of the U.S. economy than any other arm of government. Cleaning house at the EPA, according to CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen, will by itself do much to jumpstart the U.S. economy.
No one should dispute the fact that hurricanes rank among our planet’s most terrifying and devastating natural disasters or that they are influenced by that enigmatically complex phenomena collectively referred to as “climate." Hurricane Matthew, which resulted in the tragic deaths of an estimated 34 people in the U.S., more than 500 in impoverished Haiti, and many billions of dollars of property and business losses, was clearly no exception. Climate changes and hurricanes began occurring long before the Industrial Revolution introduced smokestacks and SUVs. Sadly, and despite all best efforts of Al Gore, the United Nations, President Obama, and the EPA [...]
While the sensationalist New York Times publishes fearmonger articles warning of imminent massive coastal flooding as a result of global warming, real-world data present a very different picture -- for example, the Marshall Islands have actually GAINED land mass since World War II. Not even Warren Buffett is concerned.
CFACT Advisor Larry Bell reports that Secretary of State John Kerry is continuing his assault on sanity through his ridiculous diatribes on climate change. Now he wants to ban air conditioning (most likely only for the poor and middle class, though). Meanwhile, Kerry and his pals are still celebrating killing half a million jobs formerly generated by the U.S. coal industry.
CFACT Advisor Larry Bell tells of a conversation on an airplane flight with a disciple of Al Gore regarding climate change.
1988 was a barn-burner year for climate alarmists. Then-Sen. Al Gore’s steamy congressional hearing trumpeted a planet on fire, and the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was created to produce pseudo-scientific evidence blaming it on unfair capitalist industrial prosperity-spawned CO2 emissions. Canadian Environment Minister Christine Stewart explained the real cause for urgency. She told editors and reporters of the Calgary Herald, “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony . . . climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” Stewart was wrong. Consequences of that phony science upon [...]
Many have suspected that U.S. political intervention in climate science has corrupted the outcome. The new emergence of an old 1995 document from the U.S. State Department to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change confirms those suspicions, or at least gives the allegation credence enough to ask questions.
