Will Congress finally get tough on junk science?

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.

Energy civil rights

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen explains that policies that raise electricity rates have devastating impacts on the poor and on large medical facilities who serve the poor. Thus it is ironic at best that the U.S. Civil Rights Commission has come down on the side of raising rates (in effect) by siding with the fear mongers who demand an impossible to meet standards for chromium 6 in drinking water -- standards an order of magnitude tighter than what is known to be safe.

What if Obama’s climate change policies are based on pHraud?

The demand for scary scenarios to prop up failing global warming arguments has apparently led two scientists at the Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (PMEL), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to ignore 80 years of 20th Century ocean pH data as measured with glass electrode pH (GEPH) meters that include over 2 million records of ocean pH levels. These data do not line up with the PMEL team's computer modeling, a strong indicator that the model, for which its creator Dr. Richard Feely, has won a $100,000 Heinz Family Foundation award, is likely worthless scientifically (though clearly of great value politically). Just as with the Michael Mann hockey stick scam, this Feely scam needs to be exposed and discredited as junk science and its arrogant perpetrators forced to accept true peer review.

Putting an end to the EPA’s “secret science”

Ron Arnold says it is time to end the "secret science" that is the underlying justification for many of its costly, anti-business, and anti-citizen regulations. As Rep/ David Schweikart (R-AZ) said, “For far too long, the EPA has approved regulations that have placed a crippling financial burden on economic growth in this country with no public evidence to justify their actions.”
