April 22 is Earth Day, the March for Science, and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate March. The Climate March website says these forces of “The Resistance” intend to show President Trump they will fight his hated energy agenda every step of the way. Science March organizers say they won’t tolerate anyone who tries to “skew, ignore, misuse or interfere with science.” After eight years of government policies that killed jobs and economic growth – and skewed, ignored, [...]
West Virginia University professor James Smith shares insights about leadership -- and notes that leaders are sorely needed to help organize societies for the common good. Some leaders have very public faces, while others toil in near total anonymity, but both extremes are vital to the health of a society, Smith contends.
CFACT energy policy advisor Marita Noon explains how people can stand up to Big Wind and fight against ugly wind farms that kill birds and bats, destroy landscapes, and require subsidies to operate.
CEI's Bill Frezza recounts the tale of Galileo as precedent for the attempt today by cuckolded scientists on the take to incarcerate anyone who disagrees with the theories that have made them rich.
It’s been a rough stretch for Climate Armageddon religionists and totalitarians. Real World science, climate, and weather events just don’t support their manmade cataclysm narrative. The horrid consequences of anti-fossil-fuel energy policies are increasingly in the news. And despite campaigns by the $1.5-trillion-per-year government-industry-activist-scientific Climate Crisis Consortium, Americans consistently rank global warming at the very bottom of their serious concerns. But instead of debating their critics, or marshaling a more persuasive, evidence-based case that we really do face a manmade climate catastrophe, alarmists have ramped up their shrill rhetoric, imposed more anti-hydrocarbon edicts by executive fiat and unratified treaty – and [...]
"Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement."
In closing not just the national parks, but access roads leading to private property, President Obama is demonstrating that he is willing to punish and hurt millions of Americans to get his own way. This is not leadership -- it is the work of a petulant child ascended to the throne.
Official Washington furloughed government workers without pay, but then voted to restore their lost pay and benefits upon resolving the budget dispute. Furloughed private sector workers will foot the bill but get no help from their government -- which instead continues to do them harm through laws and regulations that kill more and more good jobs.
Do you realize how much money you owe to developing nations to compensate for all the harm your extravagant car-driving, food-refrigerating, detached-housing lifestyle has caused? The Maldives held an underwater cabinet meeting to let you know.
Bob Johns, spokesman for the American Bird Conservancy ... confirmed ...[that] the Altamont operation alone has killed more than 2,000 golden eagles. But that’s not all. “Nationwide, the wind industry kills thousands of golden eagles without prosecution,” Johns said, “while any other American citizen even possessing eagle parts such as feathers would face huge fines and prison time.”
Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s choice to replace Lisa Jackson at the Environmental Protection Agency, has been chastised for having lied to Congress, in claiming that EPA did not use “dangerous manmade climate change” to justify new 54.5 mpg standards for cars and light trucks. She’s also been implicated in the agency’s practice of using fake emails to hide questionable dealings and activities.
Even the IPCC and British Meteorological Office now recognize that average global temperatures haven’t budged in almost 17 years. However, we do face imminent manmade climate disasters. Global warming is the greatest moral issue of our time. We must do all we can to prevent looming climate catastrophes.
This week Naderev M. Sano of the Phillipines delegation made a tear-filled speech to COP 18 in Doha, Qatar. In contrast to the delegates wrangling for national advantage, the shameless rent-seeking of the carbon profiteers and the left-wing agendas of the radical NGOs, Mr. Sano projected a refreshing sincerity. Sadly, he is sincerely wrong.
From Ron Arnold's article in The Washington Examiner: "To get some perspective on this exchange, I called Marc Morano, communications director of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, a positive voice on environment and development issues. Morano told me about his Climate Depot project and its current campaign, 'Ethical Energy.'"
A new small business near Virginia’s picturesque Shenandoah Valley is threatened with extinction at the hands of county officials who are determined to twist the law in order to snuff out a local agricultural enterprise.
