White House turns up heat on climate alarm

In the face of public ennui toward 'climate change,' the Obama Administration is making one last push (or putsch) to flood crony corporatists with climate cash. As Larry Bell concludes, "Don’t expect any good news so long as many billions of taxpayer dollars reward agenda-driven political science fear mongering."

Keeping the poor impoverished

To the world's poor, electricity (including air conditioning), modern highways, quality medical care, and so much more of the good things first world people take for granted are routinely denied them out of concern for the environment (sic), or rather the elites' insistence that they rule over the poor with a paternalistic (slavemaster) hand. CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen calls the actions of these elites "callous, immoral, eco-imperialistic, and genocidal." As newly elected Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte says, "They think they can dictate our destiny," but we will not submit to their rule.

Courts tackling Clean Water Act abuses

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the North Dakota-based Hawkes Co., which had planned to mine peat from property in Minnesota, could challenge in court a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) ruling declaring the property counted as “regulated wetlands” without first having to go through the costly process necessary to obtain a permit to disturb wetlands.

The Hillary treatment for climate fraudsters?

Maybe Eric Schneiderman and his fellow AGs are onto something -- they are just investigating the wrong side. Instead of criminalizing differences of opinion or inconvenient facts, we might do well to root out actual fraud, let real science prevail, and protect our livelihoods and living standards from unscrupulous people and organizations that are using fraudulent climate chaos claims to control energy use, transform the U.S. and global economic systems, and redistribute the world’s wealth.

Climate skeptics face Senate inquisition

Galileo has lots of modern-day companions. Woe be unto those who dare to doubt that the sun orbits around Planet Gore as pontiffs of doom have decreed. That’s exactly the 17th Century time warp scenario that played out last week on the Senate floor as Chief Inquisitor Sheldon Whitehouse (D, RI) and 18 fellow jurists intoned judgments against dozens of organizations for sins of “denial blocking action on climate.” Most of those sinful deniers are nonprofit conservative think tanks, including several that I am sinfully very proud to associate with. And nope, like most of those other sinful deniers, I don’t get [...]

Fuel me or fool me

Climate alarmists cannot separate human influences from natural causes for any recent changes. They do not know how much Earth will warm by 2100. They cannot say at what point further warming will be “dangerous” – or for which plant, wildlife, or human populations. They admit that slashing America’s fossil fuel use will reduce global warming by only a few hundredths of one degree (assuming CO2 drives climate change), especially if most countries continue burning coal, oil and natural gas.

May free speech reign and scientific inquiry prevail

It never ceases to amaze! Leftist attorneys general - all likely members of the American Civil Liberties Union - have conspired to deprive climate skeptics of their freedom of speech -- and freedom to challenge the unproven (and often disproven) claims of "climate change" (formerly known as "global warming") activists (who openly admit that gaining total control over the world economy, NOT fixing the climate, is their true goal). The obvious reason? People are wise enough to believe the skeptics that their climate overlords are liars, and the truth cannot get in the way of their unprecedented power grab.

Brexit borrows July 4th significance

Americans from all fifty states have an opportunity in November to follow the lead of their British cousins and vote against an aggressive, unaccountable centralized regulatory government whose diktats appear to be focused on the assertion of power rather than on improving the environment, the economy, or any other claimed societal ill. They also have a chance to slow or reverse immigration and jobs policies that cause direct harm to American workers, instead favoring legal and illegal immigrants who are beholden to the anti-liberty central government for their good fortune.

Brexit for America

The American people need a divorce from the elitist statists who have been running the United States without regard to law, due process. the entire Bill of Rights, and even the Supreme Court. But will they have the stamina and courage to break the chains that bind them to the elites? The future of human freedom everywhere hangs in the balance.

Why waste food to replace something we already have too much of?

As total repeal of the ethanol renewable fuel standard is unlikely, a compromise has been crafted that CFACT advisor Marita Noon says would go a long way toward minimizing the problem from over-zealous government intervention in the vehicular fuel marketplace. It is time to get back to allowing the free market—not Congress, not unelected bureaucrats, not mandates, not artificially spurred growth in a chosen industry—to determine our fuel choices.

Graduates face a big challenge

As they don caps and gowns, endure commencement speeches, and take their diplomas, many high school and college graduates face bleak prospects in an economy that grew a dismal 0.5% the first quarter. The United States added a meager 160,000 new non-farm jobs in April, a paltry 4,000 of them in manufacturing. First quarter 2016 averaged just 203,000 jobs per month. The labor force participation rate remains stuck at an abysmal 63% – meaning 93 million working age Americans are still unemployed. Many who are working hold multiple jobs to make ends meet, while others are toiling at temporary, part-time or [...]
