The Origin and Nature of the Alleged Scientific Consensus 
"Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age."
—MIT Professor, Dr. Richard Lindzen, a recognized authority on atmospheric science

Environmentalists' Highway
Beneath the rhetoric of survival, behind the Sierra Club calendars, beyond the movie-star appeals, lies a full-fledged ideology – an ideology every bit as powerful as Marxism and every bit as dangerous to individual freedom and human happiness. Like Marxism, it appeals to seemingly noble instincts: the longing for beauty, for harmony, for peace. It is the green road to serfdom.

The Truth About 10% Ethanol in Gasoline
It produces less energy than gasoline meaning a loss of power and fuel economy, it increases CO2 production, causes increased wear and tear to engine components especially in the fuel system, causes carbon buildup in combustion chamber, usage voids many engine manufacturer's warranty. AND 15% is 50 times worse!

Why Wind Won't Work

World Climate DeclarationWorld Climate Declaration  NEW Auguat 2023
A global network of over 1609 scientists and professionals has prepared this urgent message. Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures. —August 14, 2023

Craig Idso, Robert M. Carter, S. Fred Singer
The most important fact about climate science, often overlooked, is that scientists disagree about the environmental impacts of the combustion of fossil fuels on the global climate.

There is no survey or study showing “consensus” on the most important scientific issues, despite frequent claims by advocates to the contrary.

What Is a Battery?
The Embedded Costs of Going Green

What is a battery?' I think Nikola Tesla said it best when he called it an Energy Storage System. That's an important distinction. They do not make electricity – they store electricity produced elsewhere, primarily by coal, uranium, natural gas-powered plants, or diesel-fueled generators. So, to say an EV is a zero-emission vehicle is not at all valid.

Is It Ethical to Purchase a Lithium Battery Powered EV?
Ronald Stein
Lithium versus OilToday, a typical EV battery weighs one thousand pounds.  It contains 25 pounds of lithium, 60 pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds cobalt, 200 pounds of copper, and 400 pounds of aluminium, steel, and plastic. Inside are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells. It should concern you that all those toxic components come from mining. For instance, to manufacture each EV auto battery, you must process 25,000 pounds of brine for the lithium, 30,000 pounds of ore for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds of ore for the nickel, and 25,000 pounds of ore for copper. All told, you dig up 500,000 pounds of the earth's crust for just one battery.

Wind Energy’s Overblown Prospects
Larry Bell
Many green energy advocates have exaggerated the capacity of wind power 
to make a significant impact on U.S. electrical needs.
Any euphoric fantasy that an unlimited, free and clean alternative to carbon-cursed fossil-fuel sources is
blowing by with scant notice is exceedingly naÔve and misguided.

Rational Look at Renewable Energy A Rational Look At Renewable Energy
Renewable energy can be helpful to meet improved environmental targets, but we the people must recognize that the environmental benefits will come at a high price: an increase in electric rates, an increase in capital requirements, a challenge to grid reliability and net job losses. Only with our eyes wide open can we strike an informed balance and adopt a thoughtful energy policy without hype and pretense.

The Fantasy of Storing Wind Power:
No Commercial System Exists & None is Likely

The wind industry is the perpetual infant of power generation:
always looking for the subsidies to last that little bit longer;
always promising to improve its performance;
always claiming it will outdo hydro, coal and gas – provided, of course,
that the subsidies keep flowing. When challenged about its consistent failures
to match output with demand, the wind industry and its parasites respond
by mumbling about "battery technology improving".

27may24 The EV Battery 'Catch-22'
Lauren Jessop
While setting aggressive goals for electric vehicle market share, the Biden administration also wants tariffs and or restrictions on the importation of vehicles and the minerals needed for their batteries – creating heightened concerns over supply chains in what can be described as a “Catch-22” situation. In his e-book, “The EV Transition Explained,” Robert Charette, longtime systems engineer, and contributing editor for IEEE Spectrum, says making the transition is harder than anyone thinks. He recently told The Center Square it is truer now than it ever was. “None of this is simple,” he said.
22feb24 As Climate ‘science’ Collapses, the Biden Administration
Doubles Down on It for Racial Purposes

Andrea Widburg
The “climate change” panic is predicated on computer models, which are useful for finite projects, such as calculating metal stress, designing a chair, or building dental prosthetics. However, for something as complex as the Earth’s climate, with its infinite variables, the only constant for computer models is GIGO (“garbage in, garbage out”). A new report about a major failure in these models -- misunderstanding water vapor input -- proves this point. The report was published just as Richard Levine, the sexual fetishist at HHS, put out a video using “climate change” to stir up racial division, thereby highlighting what “climate change” is really about: Power.
3feb24 Energy Bills Must Rise to Pay for Net Zero,
Says Siemens Energy Boss

The German boss of Britain’s biggest wind turbine maker has warned energy bills will have to keep rising to pay for the green transition as he attacked “fairytale” thinking about net zero. Joe Kaeser, chairman of Siemens Energy, suggested higher energy bills were inevitable as turbine makers grapple with huge losses, forcing them to pass on costs to their customers. Mr Kaeser told The Telegraph: “Every transformation comes at a cost and every transformation is painful. And that’s something which the energy industry and the public sector – governments – don’t really want to hear.
2feb24 Climate and Energy Fantasy and Tyranny
Paul Driessen
It’s mystifying and terrifying that our lives, livelihoods, and living standards are increasingly dictated by activist, political, bureaucratic, academic, and media ruling elites, who disseminate theoretical nonsense, calculated myths, and outright disinformation. Not only on pronouns, gender and immigration -- but on climate change … and energy, the foundation of modern civilization and life spans. We’re constantly told the world will plunge into an existential climate cataclysm if average planetary temperatures rise another few tenths of a degree due to using fossil fuels for reliable, affordable energy, raw materials for over 6,000 vital products, and lifting billions out of poverty, disease and early death.
20jan24 Energy Information Has Never Mattered More –
So It’s Time to Reform the IEA

Mark P. Mills
The International Energy Agency (IEA) turns 50 this year. Doubtless there will be champagne-infused celebrations at its Paris headquarters. But on this side of the Atlantic, it’s past time for the United States, the biggest source of that agency’s funding, to rethink the IEA’s role. To be blunt: the U.S. should suspend payments to the IEA until it has been restructured in a fashion suitable for the times. There’s plenty of precedent for such an action, from both sides of the aisle.
11dec23 The Crippling Economic Costs of Green Energy Subsidies
Jonathan Lesser
Under the IRA, the lion’s share of subsidies will be paid to wind and solar developers. The subsidies will not expire until electric industry carbon emissions fall by at least 75% below 2005 levels, after which they will gradually decrease. Even the most optimistic forecasts prepared by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) show that this will not occur until at least 2046. Thus, the subsidies for wind and solar will continue unabated for decades. In total, the subsidies will far exceed what the U.S. government spent in today’s dollars to combat the Great Depression.
2nov23 The Cost of Covering American Roads with EVs is
Raising Some Big Speed Bumps

Kevin Killough
With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act in 2022, the federal government boosted tax credits, hoping to help American consumers wary of the higher sticker prices for electric vehicles (EVs) to warm up to them. In a further push, in May of this year, the EPA proposed emissions standards on new vehicles that are designed to make 60% of all new vehicle sales to be electric powered by 2030. While the automakers were on board with the transition, American consumers weren’t so committed.
31oct23 Experts Say 50 Million Miles of New Power Lines Needed for
Green Energy, and That May Be Impossible

Kevin Killough
It's one thing to try and replace fossil fuels with wind and solar power, but experts are saying the generation of power is only half the battle, and that the problems in getting that power to Americans may be insurmountable. A new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) concludes that the size of the global electricity grid will need to double by 2040, in order to reach global emission reductions targets in line with the Paris Agreement.

16oct23 The Six Ways Renewables Increase Electricity Bills
Paul Homewood
A new paper from the Net Zero Watch demonstrates conclusively renewables increase electricity bills – indeed, it is almost impossible that adding a new windfarm to the grid would ever reduce consumer prices. "In order to reduce bills, a new generator generally has to force an old one to leave the electricity market – otherwise there are two sets of costs to cover. But with wind power, you can’t let anything leave the market, because one day there might be no wind."

18aug23 Delusional Groupthink Drives Obsession with
Chaotically Intermittent Wind & Solar

As in life, government policy is about trade-offs, which usually means plumping for the good rather than the perfect. However, in the de-industrialising West, energy policy is all about rejecting the good in favour of the unworkable. The notion that weather-dependent wind, and weather and sunshine-dependent solar (with or without pumped hydro or mythical mega-batteries) will soon provide all of our power needs is nothing short of delusional.
24jul23 Solar Panels Don’t Really Help the Environment,
but They Do Help Our Enemies

Catherine Salgado
The Biden administration has sunk billions of taxpayer dollars into “renewable” energy, but a new report won’t surprise Americans who’ve read any honest research on solar panels. It reveals that the panels are nearly as carbon-intensive as natural gas. Not only that, investment in solar benefits America’s number one enemy: China.
23jul23 Study Casts Doubt on Electric Vehicles' Climate, Cost Benefits:
'Won't Achieve the Goals Intended'

A new report published by the Manhattan Institute threw cold water on the purported climate and cost benefits of electric vehicles (EVs) widely touted by lawmakers and automakers. Overall, the rapid electrification of the U.S. transportation sector would increase consumer costs, make the electric grid more vulnerable to blackouts, threaten national security and may not even lead to fewer greenhouse gas emissions, according to the paper titled "Electric Vehicles for Everyone? The Impossible Dream" and authored by Manhattan Institute senior fellow Mark Mills.
18jul23 Electric Vehicles for Everyone?
The Impossible Dream

Mark P. Mills, Senior Fellow Manhattan Institute
Few doubt, even if some lament, the centrality of the automobile in modern society. For more than a century, policymakers have encouraged, facilitated, regulated, and taxed the production and use of automobiles. But now, policies unprecedented in scope and consequence are planned to ban the sale of the type of vehicle that 99% of people use – that is, vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Instead, government policies are being launched to mandate, directly and indirectly, electric vehicles (EVs) [48-page PDF]

Grifters have long fascinated us. Operating outside accepted moral standards, they excel at persuading their “marks” to hand valuables over willingly. If they ever represented a “distinctly American ethos,” they’ve been supplanted by con artists seeking bank accounts for funds abandoned by Nigerian princes. However, they were all pikers compared to the billion-dollar stratagems being carried off by Climate Armageddon grifters like Bill Gates, Al Gore, Elon Musk and Biden Climate Envoy John Kerry.
22mar23 Why Wind and Solar Will Never Work
John Hinderaker
Enormous amounts of money are being made by "green" fraudsters, utilities and politicians who tell us we are in the midst of a transition from fossil fuels to wind and solar energy. In fact, no such transition is underway; fossil fuel consumption is higher than ever. And no such transition will take place, ever, either in America or anywhere else in the world. Why? Because wind and solar are both obsolete technologies. They produce electricity less than one-half of the time, a fact that will never change. How can we run a modern economy on intermittent energy sources? We can't.
5feb23 The Futility of Wind Energy
Extreme temperature = calm wind = no wind energy.
Mike Smith
"Here's the thing: If someone had taken a magic wand and instantly tripled the number of wind turbines in Kansas and Oklahoma this morning, it wouldn't have made any difference. Calm winds mean no electricity. The problem was not confined to the USA. This morning, I learned of a wind farm that produced negative wind energy for two days in Canada. Really!
11jan2023 Cause and Contributing Factors of Failure of Geared Wind Turbines
[Understanding the mechanics of wind turbines]
Metropolitan Engineering Consulting & Forensics (MEC&F)
Just yesterday [Oct. 7, 2014] Siemens announced that the wind projects are not viable without heavy government subsidies. The failure of the bearings located within the gearbox is the most significant problem associated with the turbines This year, Siemens, a main manufacturer of wind turbines, reported a charge of 48 million Euros for inspecting and replacing defective main bearings in some onshore wind turbines. Structural and mechanical failures (which can result in a tower collapse) are primarily due to control system errors and lack of effective maintenance.

5dec22 The Tories’ Wind Power Delusion
Matt Ridley
Claims that onshore wind is cheap come thick and fast from politicians in thrall to the most well oiled of crony-capitalist industries, the wind merchants. The claims are not supported by the accounts of onshore wind farms, which indicate a breakeven cost of around £80/MWh for the very cheapest farms. Wind farm accounts also show that this cost is rising, not falling, presumably due to such grid constraints, the fact that the best sites have gone, and the rising costs of steel, concrete, copper and neodymium making new machines pricier. Yet even £80/MWh is nearly double the cost of gas-fired power at the long-term average price of gas.
13nov22 Why Green Energy Is Not Green At All
Viv Forbes
"Green" policies are destroying the natural environment and changing local weather.  This is part of a futile U.N. scheme claiming to improve the climate of the world. All green energy degrades its environment. Green energy is very dilute -- thus, large areas of land are needed to collect wind and solar energy.  Even more land is cleared for the ugly spider webs of power lines and roads needed to collect green energy in dribs and drabs and conduct it to cities, where it is needed.  But for most of the time, every day, these expensive assets produce nothing useful.
8aug22 About that 'Greenhouse Gas' Provision
Clarice Feldman
If you write a news story about a significant piece of legislation relying heavily on its proponents – or worse, your own ideological interests – you are likely to overstate their victory. That is precisely what the New York Times did when it contended recently that the misnamed Inflation Reduction Act explicitly [gave] the EPA the authority to regulate greenhouse gases:

I. S. Petersen
[F]or almost a year, the Colorado Energy Office has been funding a campaign essentially lobbying directly to citizens to buy electric cars. The hype is there. The optimistic forecasts about the EV market are there. But is the EV – as is, in 2022 – a reality-based solution for most Colorado citizens?
27jul22 The Green Dream: Zero-Emission Vehicles Big Lie
Katie Spence
The term “zero-emission vehicles” sounds inspiring, but in reality, that term is far from true. Indeed, when someone says “zero-emission vehicles,” he or she is talking about what’s coming out of the tailpipe, not the vehicle’s entire lifecycle. When you look at its entire manufacturing cycle, you’ll find battery electric vehicles (BEVs) aren’t anywhere near “zero-emissions.” Why? Because simply manufacturing a lithium-ion battery produces an additional 10,000 to 40,000-carbon debt compared to internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs).
30may22 The Day the Electricity Died
Frank Lasee
Imagine one of your kids freezing to death in your home. Eleven-year-old Cristian Pineda's mother found her son dead during the Texas blackout in February 2021. Or you have a power outage for three days, losing a couple of hundred dollars worth of food because your refrigerator didn’t work, as Michelle Jones did last summer. The food she had just bought to feed herself, her daughter, and her granddaughter spoiled without electricity. This is likely to become all too common in the future. Why?
2apr22 The Great Green Lie: Wind & Solar Aren’t Saving the Planet,

In touting their purported environmental credentials, the crony capitalists, rent-seekers and fawning advocates never take into account any of the associated costs. At the heart of economics is the need to account for all costs and weigh them against any purported benefits.
9mar22 Ever Wonder Why Our Leftist Government is
Intent on Putting Us in Electric Cars?

Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris
One of its [the Biden Admin.] strategies has escaped even the most conservative of thinkers. It is the promotion of the electric automobile. They well know, as we will show in the following paragraphs, that the nation’s roads can never be crowded with electric cars. There is not now, nor ever will there be, sufficient electric power for us to travel hither and yon with battery-powered vehicles. So, who decides who gets what electricity will be available?
9mar22 The Electric Vehicle Scam
Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris
The utility companies have thus far had little to say about the alarming cost projections to operate electric vehicles (EVs) or the increased rates that they will be required to charge their customers. It is not just the total amount of electricity required but the transmission lines and fast charging capacity that must be built at existing filling stations. Neither wind nor solar can support any of it. Electric vehicles will never become the mainstream of transportation!
4feb22 How Green Energy Fantasies Can Amplify Civil Unrest
Chuck DeVore
Policies that make energy scarce and expensive, promoted by wealthy elites, result in domestic unrest while diminishing a nation’s ability to vigorously pursue its national interests. Since 2011, this has been the case in Egypt, France, Kazakhstan, Germany, and others. Even California and Texas are grappling with similar problems.
30jan22 Assessing Virginia’s Hidden Wind and Solar Costs
Paul Driessen
Among Governor Glenn Youngkin’s first actions was Executive Order #9 initiating Virginia’s withdrawal from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the Northeastern U.S. “carbon market” that sets and enforces emission limits for coal and gas power plants. RGGI also lets utilities buy “carbon credits” when emissions exceed those limits, passing costs on to families, businesses, hospitals and schools. Special interests will contest withdrawal, but the EO sets the proper tone for reforming Virginia’s energy system.
21jan22 The Global Warming Question That Can Change People’s Minds
Selwyn Duke
Late last year, I got into a discussion with a fellow who was quite sold on the idea that man’s activities were warming the Earth. While not a hardcore ideologue, it was apparent the gentleman had accepted the climate change narrative presented by mainstream media and believed we truly were imperiling the planet. I didn’t say much to him initially, as we were engaged in some recreation, but later on I resurrected the topic and told him I just wanted to pose one question.

California Asks Residents to Avoid Charging Electric Vehicles

In the past week, the California Independent System Operator (ISO) told residents several times to voluntarily conserve energy, including asking them on social media to stop charging their electric vehicles (EVs) during peak usage times.

14may21 International Energy Agency Report Shows That Green Energy Transition is a Fantasy Because of Dependence on Key Rare Minerals
Thomas Lifson
A prestigious intergovernmental organization created by the world’s advanced economies is pointing out the bottleneck in the plans to substitute so-called green energy for hydrocarbon-based energy: the availability of key minerals necessary for battery storage, wind farms, solar panels, and other gizmos necessary for the switchover. Simply put: the world can’t provide the quantity of those minerals that would be necessary, and the environmental and social impact of trying to mine them in sufficient quantities would be devastating. The cure, in other words, is worse than the disease.

The Climategate cheating scandal exposed the man-made global warming theory for what it is: the most brazen scientific hoax in human history, an international collusion to destroy capitalism in the worlds largest capitalist nation to pave the way for that nations sovereignty being handed over to a global governing authority run by the United Nations. That is a serious charge on my part, so please allow me to justify it...
11apr21 Cities, Countries, and Economies Were Built With
Derivatives from Oil, Not by Electricity

Ronald Stein
Before world leaders move too fast to consummate their climate policies, they need to be cognizant of two “aha” moments: 1) wind and solar can only generate intermittent electricity, and 2) electricity cannot manufacture the oil derivatives that are the basis of the thousands of products that have built the world’s cities, countries, and economies over the last 200 years.
4apr21 Wind Turbines Don't Like Cold Weather
Jack Dini
Richard Littlejohn points out in the UK there are days when the contribution of the forests of wind turbines had been precisely nothing. As the temperature plummeted, the turbines have had to be heated to prevent them seizing up. Consequently, they had been consuming more electricity than they generated. Even on a good day they rarely worked above a quarter of their theoretical capacity. And in high winds they had to be switched off altogether to prevent damage.
2apr21 It Takes Big Energy to Back Up Little Wind and Solar
Design is Complex and One Number is Obvious but Always Hidden

David Wojick
At least it’s painful (and terribly inconvenient) to advocates of wind and solar power – which may be why we never hear about it, why it too often gets deliberately hidden from view. It is a big, bad number. The minimum backup requirement is how much generating capacity a system must have if it is to reliably produce the electricity we need when wind and solar don’t. For most places, the magnitude of MBR is very simple. It is all the juice needed on the hottest or coldest low wind nights. It is night, so there is no solar.
20mar21 EV Subsidies, Fantasies and Realities -- Electric Vehicles Are Trendy but Not Very Earth-friendly, Affordable or Emission-Free
Paul Driessen
Tesla may be synonymous with electric vehicles right now. But within a few years, GM, Volvo and many other manufacturers will be making mostly or only EVs, because they’re emission-free, climate-friendly, socially and ecologically responsible, and more affordable every year. Which explains why we need subsidies to persuade people to buy them, and mandates to force people to buy them.
3jan21 New York Can't Buy Its Way Out of Coming Blackouts
David Wojick, PhD
New York City will soon be home to the world's biggest industrial-scale battery system. It's designed to back up the city's growing reliance on intermittent "renewable" electricity. At 400 megawatt-hours (MWh)... When it comes to the scale needed to reliably back up unreliable pretend-renewable electricity generation – and keep business, industry, social media and civilization functioning – New York's and America's policy makers need to start living in the Real World. Otherwise blackouts will become common.
4dec20 Sheldon Whitehouse's Climate Inquisition Continues
Five years ago, I said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) behaves like Torquemada, using Inquisition-like tactics to harass "manmade climate crisis" skeptics, and threatening to prosecute them for racketeering. He recently said Democrat control of the Senate would enable him and his colleagues to launch investigations, haul climate realists before committees (for star-chamber show trials), and even employ grand juries and criminal prosecutions – to intimidate, silence and punish climate crisis nonbelievers.
28oct20 Wind Turbines Generate Mountains of Waste
Blade Waste Alone Proves Wind is No More Green Than Solar

Duggan Flanakin
Environmentalists and wind energy opportunists (entrepreneurs who take advantage of overly generous tax credits and multiple other subsidies) want you to believe wind energy is as pure “green” as newly driven snow is white, and as cheap as Taco Bell. They never tell you about the costs -- or the environmental destruction -- that they have hidden from you for decades.
3jun20 Destroying the Environment to Save It
Paul Driessen
Whenever I hear that some community, company or country is going to implement “clean” energy or “clean” economy programs – to eliminate “dangerous” carbon dioxide emissions and “save the planet” – I think of the iconic Vietnam War era quotation, “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.” The Al Gore / Michael Mann equivalent of course is, “We had to destroy the environment in order to save it.”

Climate alarmists rarely lose an opportunity to brand as "science deniers" anyone who questions the mantra of "manmade climate cataclysms."

Duggan Flanakin
China is seriously committed to "eco-friendly" battery-electric buses, employing mandate, subsidies and rewards to encourage a switch from gasoline, diesel and natural gas-powered buses. California, Maine, and other U.S. states and cities are following suit. Driving much of the U.S. shift is the belief that electric buses avoid "climate altering" gases, at least once they're on the road.

12jul19 The "New Energy Economy": An Exercise in Magical Thinking
Why Wind and Solar Will Never Work

Mark P. Mills – Manhattan Institute
A movement has been growing for decades to replace hydrocarbons, which collectively supply 84% of the world’s energy. It began with the fear that we were running out of oil. That fear has since migrated to the belief that, because of climate change and other environmental concerns, society can no longer tolerate burning oil, natural gas, and coal – all of which have turned out to be abundant.
17may19 Inconvenient Energy Fact: It Takes 79 Solar Workers to
Produce Same Amount of Electric Power as One Coal Worker

Mark J. Perry
In a New York Times article reporter Nadja Popovich wrote that “Last year, the solar industry employed many more Americans [373,807] than coal [160,119], while wind power topped 100,000 jobs.” But simply reporting rather enthusiastically that the solar industry employs lots of Americans, more than twice as many as the number of coal miners and utility workers at electric power plants using coal, is only telling a small part of the story.
16may19 ‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind &
Solar ‘Transition’ an Inevitable & Total Failure

Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices -- right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital -- which tops the list. Its so-called ‘Energiewende’ has turned into high farce: power prices are rising; hundreds of thousands of Germans can no longer afford power; the grid is on the brink of collapse; and its primary object (slashing carbon dioxide gas emissions) is an abject failure.
11may19 Back to the Medieval Green World
Viv Forbes
Greens dream of a zero-emissions world without coal, oil and natural gas. They need to think about what they wish for. First there would be no mass production of steel without coke from coking coal to remove oxygen from iron ore. People could cut trees in forests for charcoal to produce pig iron and crude steels, but forests would soon be exhausted. Coal saved the forests from this fate.
5mar19 How Much CO2 Gets Emitted to Build a Wind Turbine?
Because wind power fails to deliver at all hundreds of times each year, 100% of its capacity has to be backed up 100% of the time by fossil fuel generation sources – which run constantly in the background to balance the grid and prevent blackouts when wind power output collapses – as it does on a routine, but unpredictable, basis.
27feb19 The Real Reason They Hate Nuclear is Because
It Means We Don't Need Renewables

Michael Shellenberger
Why is it that, from the U.S. and Canada to Spain and France, it is progressives and socialists who say they care deeply about the climate, not conservative climate skeptics, who are seeking to shut down nuclear plants? After all, the two greatest successes when it comes to nuclear energy are Sweden and France, two nations held up by democratic socialists for decades as models of the kind of societies they want.
21feb19 Media Hysteria:
Climate Change ‘Heat Records’ Are a Huge Data Manipulation

Jay Lehr & Tom Harris
The idea that climate change is producing heat records across the Earth is among the most egregious manipulations of data in the absurd global warming debate. Americans receive a daily barrage from the fake news media and climate “experts” reporting that each and every day, week, month or year is the hottest on record due to global warming.
18nov18 Blaming Climate – Ignoring Incompetence
California Wildfires Incinerate People, Wildlife and Habitats.
Politicians Blame Climate Change.

Paul Driessen
Resorting to "manmade climate change" has become the favorite, most politically expedient tactic for deflecting attention away from the abject, ideological, even criminally incompetent forest management practices demanded by politicians, regulators, judges and environmentalists in recent decades.
3oct18 Rooting Out Scientific Corruption
Paul Driessen
It’s about time someone exposed and rooted out this growing problem, and not just in the food arena. Countless billions of dollars in state and federal taxpayer money, corporate (and thus consumer) funding and foundation grants have fueled research and padded salaries, with universities typically taking a 40% or so cut off the top, for “oversight and overhead.” Incentives and temptations abound.
27aug18 How to Solve the Plastic Crisis
Just 8 Countries Are Responsible for Most Ocean Plastic

Since Jan. 1, when China stopped accepting the rich world's recyclable plastic waste, it's gotten a ton of criticism for worsening the already deep crisis of ocean plastic pollution. But China isn't the only culprit here. This is a crisis made – and growing worse – throughout developing Asia. Just eight countries in the region are responsible for about 63 percent of total plastic waste flowing into the oceans. Little of that junk has been exported by rich economies.
17aug18 Obama Carbon Colonialism and Climate Corruption Continue –
A 3-part Series

Paul Driessen and David Wojick, Ph.D.
It's horrible enough that the World Bank, multilateral development banks and radical environmentalist pressure groups actively deny the poorest families on Earth access to the energy, agricultural and disease control technologies that have made health and living standards so good and life spans so long for so many people. For the Trump USAID to perpetuate Omaba's carbon colonialist policies simply defies belief.
11aug18 Questionable Funding for Environmental Groups and
What They Do with It
Naming Names and the Shocking Amount of Dollars Involved

Jack Dini
Many corporations provide funding to environmental groups and the level of funding has been growing. As Steve Goreham says, “We’re talking big dollars here. Corporate funding of environmental groups amounts to hundreds of million of dollars per year. In 2007, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Coca-Cola announced a multi-year partnership worth over $20 million to WWF.
4aug18 Europe Has Little Output to Show for Its Wind and Solar Investments;
Spent €5B per Gigawatt, Natural Gas Would Have Been €1B

By 2014, the European Union had spent over a trillion dollars on large scale renewable energy. Yet, that investment has provided little in terms of generating capacity and output. Out of about a total of 1000 gigawatts in the European Union at the end of 2014, renewable capacity totaled just 216 gigawatts. Germany, for example, invested $467 billion on renewable energy, installing more renewable energy capacity than any other country in Europe (78.7 gigawatts through 2014), but still relies on coal for about 42 percent of its power.
5jun18 Speculative Climate Chaos v. Indisputable Fossil Fuel Benefits
Paul Driessen and Roger Bezdek
Environmental and climate activists, including cities pursuing climate lawsuits against oil companies, almost never acknowledge those benefits, which are far-reaching and indisputable. We can only hope attorneys Anne Champion, Philip Curtis, Diehl Kemper, et al. and friends of the court will do justice to the many blessings attributable to our use of these once unimaginable energy resources.
9feb18 Can Climate Models Predict Climate Change?
Already viewed nearly 1-1/2 million times, Emeritus Professor of Physics at Princeton University Will Happer explains why the complexity of the atmosphere is the reason climate models haven't worked and will probably never work at predicting our planet's future climate. This is an easy to understand video – no college diploma required!
9feb18 Leasing Offshore Energy Drilling Benefits America
Paul Driessen
Under the current offshore energy program developed during the Obama years, 94% of the nation’s Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) is off limits to leasing and drilling. Under the Draft Proposed Program (DPP) announced January 4 by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, over 90% of OCS acreage and 98% of “undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources” in these federal offshore areas (beyond the 3-mile limit of state waters) will be considered for possible future leasing, exploration and development.
2jan18 Global Warming: Fake News from the Start
The Objective of the [UN's] IPCC Was Political, Not Scientific

Tom Harris
The political [global warming] agenda required “credibility” to accomplish the deception. It also required some fake news for momentum. Ideally, this would involve testimony from a scientist before a legislative committee. U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth (D-CO) was fully committed to the political agenda and the deception. As he explained in a 1993 comment, “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.…”
10nov17 Renewable Energy by Royal Decree
Paul Driessen
The St. Louis city council has unanimously passed a resolution decreeing that by 2035 the city will somehow, almost magically be powered by 100% "clean, renewable" electricity. This will be achieved, city aldermen believe, via tougher energy efficiency measures and a transition to wind and solar power.
15oct17 The Obama EPA's Crooked Prosecutors – The agency's carbon dioxide climate "endangerment finding" was a kangaroo court process
Paul Dreissen
Suppose a crooked prosecutor framed someone and was determined to get a conviction. So he built an entire case on tainted, circumstantial evidence, and testimony from witnesses who had their reasons for wanting the guy in jail. Suppose the prosecutor ignored or hid exculpatory evidence and colluded with the judge to prevent the defendant from presenting a robust defense or cross-examining adverse witnesses. You know what would happen – at least in a fair and just society.
7aug17 MIT Climate Scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen: Believing CO2 Controls
The Climate ‘is pretty close to believing in magic’

"Believing this is pretty close to believing in magic. Instead, you are told that it is believing in ‘science.’ Such a claim should be a tip-off that something is amiss. After all, science is a mode of inquiry rather than a belief structure." "The accumulation of false and/or misleading claims is often referred to as the ‘overwhelming evidence’ for forthcoming catastrophe. Without these claims, one might legitimately ask whether there is any evidence at all."
5mar17 GIGO-Based Energy and Climate Policies
Paul Driessen
Things are never quiet on the climate front. After calling dangerous manmade climate change a hoax and vowing to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement, President Trump has apparently removed language criticizing the Paris deal from a pending executive order initiating a rollback of anti-fossil-fuel regulations, to help jumpstart job creation. Meanwhile, EPA Administration Scott Pruitt says he expects quick action to rescind the Clean Power Plan, a central component of the Obama Era's war on coal and hydrocarbons.
5feb17 The Hidden Agendas of Sustainability Claptrap
Paul Driessen
Like "dangerous manmade climate change," sustainability reflects poor understanding of basic energy, economic, resource extraction and manufacturing principles – and a tendency to emphasize tautologies and theoretical models as an alternative to readily observable evidence in the Real World. It also involves well-intended but ill-informed people being led by ill-intended but well-informed activists who use the concept to gain greater government control over people's lives, livelihoods and living standards.
11oct16 Nobel Winner on Global Warming: 'Mr. President, You're Wrong';
 “global warming basically is a non-problem. Just leave it alone”

“I think Obama is a clever person, but he gets bad advice. Global warming is all wet,” Ivar Giaever said in a speech entitled Global Warming Revisited he gave on July 1 to scientists from 90 countries attending the 65th annual Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany.
8oct16 Experts Said Arctic Sea Ice Would
Melt Entirely by September 2016 – They Were Wrong

Dire predictions that the Arctic would be devoid of sea ice by September this year have proven to be unfounded after latest satellite images showed there is far more now than in 2012... For the month of September overall, there was 31 per cent more ice than in 2012, figures released this week from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre show.
30sep16 South Australia Pays the Price for Heavy Reliance on
Renewable Energy as Entire State is Without Power

The extensive disruption follows the narrow avoidance of widespread blackouts in South Australia in July. At that time, the state government brought pressure to bear on a local power company for an idled power station to be restarted to avoid potential disruptions, following a lack of electricity generated from wind and solar sources at a time when it was unable to “import” sufficient supply from Victoria.
23sep16 Powering Countries, Empowering People – Affordable energy brings jobs, improved living standards and pursuit of happiness
Paul Driessen
Something most people in developed countries tend to forget is how essential electricity is in maintaining our infrastructure, homes, livelihoods and living standards … how many people around the world still do not have electricity … and how dramatically their lives are improved once they get reliable, affordable electricity – as much as they need, whenever they need it.
A Three-part series: Part 1  –  Part 2  –  Part 3
23jul16 Science or Advocacy?
David R. Legates
As attacks on "climate cataclysm" skeptics intensify, and the Democratic Party Platform demands replacing half of our fossil fuels with wind, solar and biofuel energy by 2050 – to prevent alleged climate disasters – there is a growing need for real climate science in our schools and body politic. Unfortunately, just the opposite is happening. Schools are replacing science with ideology and advocacy.
7jun16 Bill Nye the Scientism Guy
Facts Don’t Support His Hypothesis, So He Shouts Louder...

Dr. Willie Soon and Dr. IstvŠn Marků
Climate scientism aggressively misrepresents facts, refuses to discuss energy and climate issues with anyone who points out massive flaws in the man-made climate chaos hypothesis, bullies anyone who won’t condemn carbon dioxide, and brands them as equivalent to Holocaust Deniers.
17apr16 RICO for Government Climate Deniers?
Paul Driessen and Ron Arnold
A self-appointed coalition of Democratic state attorneys general is pursuing civil or criminal racketeering actions against ExxonMobil, the Competitive Enterprise Institute and other organizations. The AGs claim the groups are committing fraud by “denying” climate change. The charge is bogus. The problem is not human intervention in the climate; it’s improper political intervention in climate science. It has corrupted scientific findings from the very beginning.

10mar16 We Cannot Afford “Free” Wind and Solar Energy
“Ultimately Physics Dooms Both Wind and Solar”

Michael Fumento
Perhaps America’s greatest investor in these technologies is Berkshire Hathaway guru Warren Buffett, who has already sunk at least $15 billion into them with “another $15 billion ready to go.” At a meeting a couple of years ago he admitted “on wind energy, we get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”
7mar16 Last-ditch Assaults on Affordable Energy
Obama and Allies Double Down on Energy Fantasies

Paul Driessen
Separating reality from ideology and political agendas is difficult, but essential, if we are to revitalize our economy and help the world’s poorest families take their rightful places among Earth’s prosperous people. Energy reality is certainly in our favor. But ideological forces are powerful and persistent.
15feb16 Audubon Goes Over the Edge – The Society’s Misleading Claims
About a Climate Crisis in the Arctic Must Be Corrected

Robert W. Endlich
The January–February 2016 issue of Audubon Magazine proclaims “Arctic on the Edge: As global warming opens our most critical bird habitat, the world is closing in.” In reality, the magazine’s writers and editors have gone over the edge, with wildly misleading “reports” on the Arctic. The magazine is awash in misstatements of fact and plain ignorance of history, science and culture.
4dec15 The Ethanol Mandate: Don’t Mend It, End It
Nicolas Loris
Praised as a policy that would reduce dependence on oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which requires refineries to blend ethanol into gasoline, has been fraught with unintended consequences. The RFS mandates the use of an inefficient fuel, drives up food prices, and causes adverse environmental effects.
12sep15 Replacing the Environmental Protection Agency
Jay Lehr, Ph.D.
Beginning around 1981, liberal activist groups recognized EPA could be used to advance their political agenda by regulating virtually all human activities regardless of their impact on the environment... Since that time, not a single environmental law or regulation has been passed that benefited either the environment or society.
12may15 Wind Energy ‘Myths’ Are Spun by Lobbyists, Salesmen 
Mary Kay Barton
[A May 2nd] letter in the Union-Sun & Journal by American Wind Energy Association representative Tom Vinson was typical of wind industry sales propaganda and deserves correction. The reality is: Industrial wind is a net loser, economically, environmentally, technically and civilly. Let’s examine how...
10may15 The Iceman Cometh?
Could a Quiescent Sun Portend a New Little Ice Age?

Paul Driessen
Global cooling commanded extensive media attention in the mid-1970s. Then Earth started warming, and the environmentalist, media, political and regulatory classes began raising alarms... But what if Earth is about to enter another Little Ice Age? Al Gore, President Obama and other alarmists never want to talk about THAT.
10may15 It Is a Bad Time to Be In the Renewable Energy Industry
Marita Noon
2015 may go down in the books as the year support for renewable energy died – and we are only a few months in. Policy adjustments – whether for electricity generation or transportation fuels – are in the works on both the state and federal levels.
22mar15 Radical Environmentalism's Death Campaigns
Paul Driessen
The terms racism, white supremacy, crimes against humanity are bandied about so often that they have become almost meaningless... But what radical environmentalists are doing to Third World countries. By denying people access to abundant, reliable, affordable electricity, modern fertilizers and biotech seeds, and especially DDT to prevent malaria and other insect-borne diseases, they are killing millions every year.

30nov14 People Starting to Ask About Motive for Massive IPCC Deception
Dr.Tim Ball
Skeptics have done a reasonable job of explaining what and how the IPCC created bad climate science. Now, as more people understand what the skeptics are saying, the question that most skeptics have not, or do not want to address is being asked – why? What is the motive behind corrupting science to such an extent?
30nov14 Take Your Pick of Lies About Ozone, Methane or Mercury
Alan Caruba
Is it surprising that the EPA continues to tell big fat lies about anything it wants to ban, but is reluctant to show the “science” on which the bans are based? There is currently a piece of legislation under consideration by Congress, the Secret Science Reform Act, to force the EPA to disclose its scientific and technical information before proposing or finalizing any regulation.
22jun14 Fighting Executive Fiat on Climate
Paul Driessen
The Food and Drug Administration requires that companies seeking approvals of medical product meet high standards for the quality, integrity, and transparency of data... What if the same standards applied to government agencies regarding the scientists and institutions they hired or utilized? Their taxpayer-supported work affects virtually every American.
20apr14 23 Global Warming & Climate Change Stories
All Americans Should Read Before Earth Day

Kyle Becker
Whether or not one wants to promote the perfectly fine goal of fostering a better environment and leaving a cleaner planet for one's children, that should not be carried out on the basis of disinformation, hysteria, or hidden political agendas…If the green movement is about "science," then why are climate change activists against the challenging of their ideas?
13apr14 The Truth about Fracking
So what about that burning water?

Kevin D. Williamson
Cheap, relatively clean, ayatollah-free energy, enormous investments in real capital and infrastructure, thousands of new jobs for blue-collar workers and Ph.D.s alike, Americans engineering something other than financial derivatives – who could not love all that?... The weird true thing is that water has been catching fire for a long time – "long time" here meaning way back into the mists of obscure prehistory and the realm of legend.
9mar14 The President’s 2015 Budget: A Masterpiece of Energy Wastefulness
Institute for Energy Research
President Obama just released his fiscal 2015 budget... instead of keeping miners in their coal jobs that historically supplied the nation with most of its electricity, he is putting his dollars on ‘clean coal and natural gas’; instead of opening more federal lands to oil and gas drilling, he is taking away standard tax deductions as applied to the oil industry and providing subsidies to inefficient technologies that supply just 2 percent of the nation’s energy.
26jan14 John Beale's Deposition Reveals the EPA's Agenda:
Undermine Capitalism and America

Alan Caruba
Dan Kish responded to the revelation saying “In his testimony under oath, Beale, perhaps unwittingly, has laid bare the administration’s end goal. The President’s policies are not about carbon, they are not about coal, and they are not even about energy and the environment. They are about fundamentally altering the DNA of the capitalist system. These policies are not about energy, but power.”
29dec13 Associated Press Report
The Secret, Dirty Cost of Obama's Green Power Push
Report Indicts Obama, the EPA, DOE and Dept. of Agriculture

The government's predictions of [ethanol's] benefits have proven so inaccurate that independent scientists question whether it will ever achieve its central environmental goal: reducing greenhouse gases. That makes the hidden costs even more significant. "This is an ecological disaster," said Craig Cox with the Environmental Working Group, a natural ally of the president that, like others, now finds itself at odds with the White House.
The Obama 'Green Energy' Power Grab
Next Generation of Biofuels a "bridge to nowhere"
Ethanol from corn has proven far more damaging to the environment than the government predicted, and cellulosic fuel hasn't emerged as a replacement. "A lot of people were willing to go with corn ethanol because it's a bridge product," said Silvia Secchi, an agricultural economist at Southern Illinois University. But until significant cellulosic fuel materializes, she said, "It's a bridge to nowhere."
24mar13 Wind Turbines Kill Up To 39 Million Birds a Year!
Jim Wiegand
Since the early 1980s, the industry has known there is no way its propeller-style turbines could ever be safe for raptors. With exposed blade tips spinning in open space at speeds up to 200 mph, it was impossible. Wind developers also knew they would have a public relations nightmare if people ever learned how many eagles are actually being cut in half – or left with a smashed wing, to stumble around for days before dying.
28oct12 Energy Is Everywhere
Kenneth P. Green
Nearly half of what people pay for energy comes ‘embodied’ in the various goods and services that they use, and about half of that comes down to two things: food and health care. “There is no substitute for energy. The whole edifice of modern society is built upon it ... It is not “just another commodity” but the precondition of all commodities, a basic factor equal with air, water, and earth.” —E. F. Schumacher, 1973
9sep12 Are wind farms saving or killing us? A provocative investigation claims thousands of people are falling sick because they live near them
James Delingpole
“If this were the nuclear industry, this is a scandal which would be on the front pages of every newspaper every day for months on end,” says Chris Heaton-Harris, the Conservative MP for Daventry who has been leading the parliamentary revolt against wind farms, demanding that their subsidies be cut. “But because it’s wind it has been let off the hook. It shouldn’t be.”
19aug12 Wind Energy's Bird and Bat Butchery
Supposedly "eco-friendly" wind turbines are sending some of America's most important and majestic sovereigns of our skies to the edge of extinction: eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, whooping cranes, condors, herons, egrets, snow geese, bats that protect crops by eating insects, and many more.
26dec11 EPA Mercury Rules for Electricity Generating Units:
Imaginary Benefits, Extensive Harm

Craig Rucker
In Dr. Willie Soon’s 85-page critique of EPA’s draft rules, U.S. power plants account for only 0.5% of the mercury in U.S. air. Thus, even if EPA’s new rules eventually do eliminate 90% of mercury from power plant emission streams, that’s still only 90% of 0.5% – ie, almost zero benefit. The rest of the mercury in US air comes from natural and foreign sources, such as forest fires, Chinese power plants and the cremation of human remains.
18dec11 Green Technology that Pollutes the Planet
Amy Oliver and Michael Sandoval
While alternative vehicle owners, solar panel supporters, and wind turbine advocates may feel better about themselves, they’re actually polluting the planet with their “clean/green” technology. Advancing these policies is beyond irresponsible, especially when the foundation of the “clean” scheme is revealed. This green hypocrisy has Mother Nature crying out for a separation of earth and state.
17dec11 When Scientists Discover Their Conclusions Are Wrong …
A J Strata
What happens when the underpinning claims of a scientific theory are proven wrong? Under the tried, true and ancient scientific method that framed the work of Newton, Einstein and uncounted others the proposed theory is deemed disproved and the scientists making the claim have to go back to the drawing board. The theory is rejected.
28oct11 Let Them Eat Windmills
Mario Loyola
The “alternative energy” movement has an enormous obstacle to contend with, namely that none of the alternative energy sources produce nearly as much energy, nearly as reliably, nearly as cheaply, as fossil fuels. Sources such as wind and solar are inherently intermittent and unpredictable, even when they are found in high enough density that it is economical to use them, which is virtually never.
2oct11 The EPA Gets Caught in a Big Fat Lie
Alan Caruba
The notion that the Environmental Protection Agency uses "science" to justify their regulations is false, just like most of the claims they issue on various aspects of the nation's environment. Their favorite scam is to estimate the number of deaths they will prevent with some new draconian regulation.
30sep11 'Green' Wind Power's Toxic Waste Legacy
Windy Scandinavia has hit this unanticipated hurdle because a key material in constructing wind turbines, carbon fiber composite, cannot be recycled and is fast filling landfills or else is being burned creating toxic emissions. The report admits, “a gigantic mountain of scrap blades is building up.”
11sep11 The Slow, Certain Death of the Global Warming Theory
Alan Caruba
Universities across America have entire departments and units devoted to keeping the global warming fraud alive. The mainstream press is heavily invested in it. Schools continue to frighten children with its claims. All this and other efforts will fail because science-real science-does not support it.
29jul11 Government Funding Skews Climate Science
Forbes – Larry Bell
Who pays for all this bad science, and worse, news? We do, of course. And it doesn’t come cheap. According to data compiled by Joanne Nova at the Science and Public Policy Institute, the U.S. Government spent more than $32.5 billion on climate studies between 1989 and 2009.

The press release for the report discusses the need “to achieve a decent living standard for people in developing countries, especially the 1.4 billion still living in extreme poverty, and the additional 2 billion people expected worldwide by 2050.”...[E]radicating hunger and overcoming poverty are now part of the climate debate.
16jun11 The Myth of Killer Mercury
Paul Dreissen and Willie Soon
This vitally important commentary highlights some of the many ways EPA's new rules for mercury and other pollutants from coal-fired power plants are arbitrary, unnecessary, and based on cherry-picked and manipulated health and environmental data. The simple reality is that no American is remotely at risk from power plant mercury emissions.
13jun11 Is this the Ultimate FAIL?

Mosquitoes are as common to the Winnipeg experience as the wind chill in January and the blazing prairie heat radiating off the concrete in August. In all three cases, technology has been our ally by making life far more pleasant than it ever was for people who originally settled here.
29aug10 Progressives Against Progress
Fred Siegel
If one were to pick a point at which liberalism’s extraordinary reversal began, it might be the celebration of the first Earth Day, in April 1970... The event brought together disparate conservationist, anti-nuclear, and back-to-the-land groups into what became the church of environmentalism, complete with warnings of hellfire and damnation.
25jul10 A Necessary Apocalypse

The apocalyptic vision of global warming serves a deep need of the environmentalist credo, the dominant pseudo-religious tendency of our age in the prosperous West.
14jun10 Renewable Energy: There Ain’t No Free Lunch
Prof. Chris Kobus, Ph.D.
When confronted with the revelation that systems need to be built to harness “free” energy, many people are perplexed as it is not something they have thought about. The reason, I suspect, is that the liberal media has dumbed down the science and inserted environmental propaganda in its place.
2jun10 NASA Gagging Policy: Scientist Quits over Controversy
Top Physicist: Greenhouse Gas Theory ‘Bogus’

John O'Sullivan
Confirmation of the gagging policy comes from ex-NASA high-flier, Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi, who upset his former employers with the 2007 publication of his paper, ‘Greenhouse effect in semi-transparent planetary atmospheres,’ in the Quarterly Journal of the Hungarian Meteorological Service.

5mar10 Climategate: The Money Trail
Joanne Nova
The big-money side of this debate has fostered a myth that skeptics write what they write because they are funded by oil profits. They say, follow the money? So I did and it's chilling.

1mar10 How They Distort Global Temperatures:
The Urban Heat Island Effect

Dr. Tim Ball
How much do calculations of global temperatures represent the real temperature of the Earth? Every day new stories appear about temperature records with errors or deliberate omissions. An important part of the debate is something called the Urban Heat Island Effect (UHIE).
26feb10 The Hidden Flaw in Greenhouse Theory;
How NASA Distorts the Truth About Our Atmosphere

Alan Siddons
An idea has been drummed into our heads for decades: that roughly 1% of the atmosphere's content is responsible for shifting the earth's surface temperature from inimical to benign. This conjecture has mistakenly focused on specifically light-absorbing gases, however, ignoring heat-absorbing gases altogether.

3jan10 It Didn't Start with Climategate
John Hinderaker
The Kyoto protocol was based on fictitious science, exaggerated or fabricated outright for political purposes. The same Professor Santer who hijacked the Second Assessment Report figures prominently in Climategate. Fraud: it is the one constant in the history of the global warming hysteria movement.
25dec09 The Climate Change Scam: A Concise Summary
In the wake of Climategate, common sense deniers [neo-deniers] like to say that there is lots of other evidence for global warming, in addition to that which has been debunked by the East Anglia whistleblower. Actually, however, the scientific evidence for AGW [man-made global warming] is remarkably weak.

Dr. Tim Ball
The IPCC Reports and especially the SPM Reports are the basis for Kyoto and the Copenhagen Accord, but now we know they are based on completely falsified and manipulated data and science. It is no longer a suspicion. Surely this is the death knell for the CRU, the IPCC, Kyoto and Copenhagen and the Carbon Credits shell game.
8nov09 Energy ABCs: Playing Americans for Fools
Alan Caruba
Astonishingly, other oil producing nations whose reserves are ranked behind the U.S. are Russia, Saudi Arabia, China, Iran, and Canada. The only oil "shortage" in the U.S. is one created by Congress and the energy policies of a succession of past presidents. An estimated 87% of our oil reserves remain untouched.
1aug09 Peer Reviewed Study: Virtually all changes in global atmospheric temperatures the result of nature rather than human activity
Climate scientist Chris de Freitas described the data as established, reproducible, and “out in the open.” The scientists’ finding flies in the face of the assertion by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in a series of reports, that “global warming” is occurring, is primarily the result of human activity, and requires urgent action.

It's snowing in April. Ice is spreading in Antarctica. The Great Barrier Reef is as healthy as ever. Time's up for this absurd scaremongering. The fears are being contradicted by the facts, and more so by the week. Doubt it? Then here's a test.
28mar09 2009 Global Warming Conference Complete Links to:
The second International Conference on Climate Change concluded its 2-1/2 -day run March 10, 2009 in New York City after confronting the theme "Global warming: Was it ever really a crisis?" The answer was a resounding "No."
1mar09 The High Price of Climate Lies
Alan Caruba
The global warming hoax didn't happen over night. It is generally dated from an appearance before Congress by Dr. James E. Hansen in 1988 predicting a dramatic rise in the Earth's temperature based on the increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere.
21mar08 ‘Medieval Environmentalists’ attack CO2
in their efforts to Derail Civilization

Dr. Tim Ball & Tom Harris
Aside from forecasts of still primitive computer models, modern climatological research consistently shows that there is no scientific justification for the CO2/climate hysteria that has so gripped mass media and politicians.
21mar08 Environmental Extremism must be put
in its place in the Climate Debate

Dr. Tim Ball & Tom Harris
Many people are starting to realize that much of what they’ve been told about climate change by governments, the United Nations and crusading celebrities is simply wrong.
2sep07 The Year the Global Warming Hoax Died
Alan Caruba
There will be dying gasps to this hoax, not the least of which is a planned $100 million media blitz by Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, but the public is already far more concerned about instability in the Middle East, the forthcoming national elections, and shocks to the U.S. economy to accord such an effort much credibility.
26mar06 Ice Cores Show Sun, Not Humans,
Controlling Earth’s Climate

Dennis T. Avery
Man’s climate impacts are puny compared to the million-degree heat of the sun. There’s no evidence that human-emitted CO2 has added much to the current temperatures.
12mar06 Endless Environmental Lies
Alan Caruba
The lies the environmental movement has put forth over the last few decades can and does fill entire libraries. They have been aided and abetted by the mainstream media that knows that scary news sells newspapers and attracts viewers and listeners.
22may05 Double Standards On Disease Control
Paul Dreissen
Last year, malaria sent more African children to shallow graves than any other infectious disease – three times as many as HIV/AIDS, according to UNICEF. Year after year, this silent, vicious executioner infects 400 million people in sub-Saharan Africa.
2apr05 The Big Business of Climate Change Research
Dr. Roy W. Spencer
A new report released today by the Marshall Institute, a Washington-based science policy group, looks at the major donors to environmental groups for climate-related activities. It finds that the vast majority of those donors represent and promote left-leaning causes.
14dec04 There Is NO Man-Made Global Warming
Tom DeWeese
Americans aren't being told that a 1997 Gallop Poll of prominent North American climatologists showed that 83 percent of them disagreed with the man-made global warming theory.
6aug04 ‘Sustainable Development’ is the Evil You Face
Tom DeWeese
Sustainable Development is the 'ruling principle' for the implementation of what former Vice President Al Gore said we must all suffer through in order to purify our nation from the horrors of the Twentieth Century’s industrial revolution.
31jul04 Sustainable Development 101
American Policy Center
Since the concept of 'sustainability' was first defined in the 1987 report by Gro Harlem Brundtland (VP of the World Socialist Party), it has swelled into a tidal wave that is washing across the world and has now crashed onto American shores and will soon inundate every American Community.
30apr04 DDT vs. Death by Malaria
Robert J. Cihak, M.D.
That DDT prevented 500 million deaths by 1970 and that the banning of its use in poor countries has resulted in millions of unnecessary deaths holds no sway with true believers in this doctrine. Where did this myth originate?
22feb04 The Emperor’s New Climate:
Is Global Warming Real?

Duncan Maxwell Anderson
Scientists have created a global-warming paradigm for themselves that benefits them – as a cause and as a livelihood. They won’t easily be dissuaded from it.
11jan04 The Endangered Species Act Deserves Extinction
Alan Caruba
Here's something that will surprise you. Originally adopted in 1973, the Endangered Species Act expired October 1, 1992! It continues only because Congress continues to fund it.
21nov03 The Real Poision is Dishonesty
Jay Ambrose
When South Africa used DDT widely, malaria cases dropped to 6,000. Five years after it switched to other techniques, the number had climbed to 60,000.
12aug03 Summer Heat
Kim Weissman
Beyond the hyperbole of calling global warming a weapon of mass destruction, let's look a bit closer at ... claims that 'The 1990s were probably the warmest decade in the last 1,000 years…'
10jun03 Revisiting the Global Warming Hoax
Alan Caruba
Little known to the public is the fact that most of the scientists involved with the UN's' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change do not agree that global warming is occurring.
16may03 The Real Epidemic: West Nile Fever
Alan Caruba
The EPA has stripped Americans of many of the pesticides that formerly protected them against a vast range of insect pests that spread disease or inflict millions of dollars of property damage.
14may03 Has EPA been promoting
one big secondhand smoke screen?

Joseph Perkins
One study, funded by the National Cancer Institute, found that nonsmokers have no increased risk of lung cancer as a result of exposure to secondhand smoke during childhood, in the workplace or from living with a pack-a-day smoker for as many as 40 years.
14may03 Judge Smokes Out Tobacco Lie
"EPA publicly committed to a conclusion before the research had begun; adjusted established procedure and scientific norms to validate its conclusion, and aggressively utilized its authority to disseminate findings to establish a de facto regulatory scheme to influence public opinion." –Judge William Osteen
27apr03 Deploy DDT To Fight Malaria
Angela Logomasini
"In the 1940s many people were deliberately exposed to high concentrations of DDT through dusting programs or impregnation of clothes, without any apparent ill effect."
–A.G. Smith of the scientific journal Lancet
5mar03 Time to Throw Out 'Myth' of Recycling
Throw away the green and blue bags and forget those trips to return bottles – recycling household waste is a load of, well, rubbish, say leading environmentalists and waste campaigners.
28dec02 Debunking Modern Climate Myths
Is global climate warming?  If so, what part of that warming is due to human activities?  How good is the evidence?  What are the risks? – 14 Fallacies
2oct02 100 Things You Should Know about DDT
J. Gordon Edwards and Steven Milloy
"To only a few chemicals does man owe as great a debt as to DDT... In little more than two decades, DDT has prevented 500 million human deaths, due to malaria, that otherwise would have been inevitable." – National Academy of Sciences, 1970
28sep02 Healthy Forests and Wise Management
Senator Jon Kyl
If we are really concerned about greenhouse gases, just stop and think, all of the emissions from all of the cars in the United States did not equal 1 day's worth of emissions from this one [Rodeo] fire.
1sep02 Science for Sale: The Global Warming Scam
Accuracy in Media
The dirty secret is that global warming is driven more by the search for funding than the search for scientific truth. "Big science" was adrift in the early 1990s, like many other beneficiaries of the Cold War, and was desperate to sustain its federal funding. Global warming had all the key attributes of the next big cause.
30aug02 The Conservative Crisis
Tom DeWeese
Conservatives would never concede their liberty to Swastikas or Hammer and Sickles, but tuck it in a Green blanket called "environmental protection" and they will toss those liberties on the fire like an old-fashioned book burning.
8aug02 Environmentalism Kills: West Nile Fever Spreads
Alan Caruba
...behind closed doors, the American Mosquito Control Association fears this nation will lose virtually all of the insecticides still available to defend people against the new plague of West Nile Fever and the return of Malaria to the US.
26jul02 The Green Plan for Global Domination
Alan Caruba
Up to now no Green has so boldly stated the true intention of the movement. However, the presentation of 'Restructuring the Global Economy' was a rare occasion when deliberate deception was not used to mask the Green's true intentions.
10jun02 Climate Action Report
Kim Weissman
Dr. Sallie Baliunas, (Astrophysicist, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics; Deputy Director, Mount Wilson Observatory) points out that between President Bush's proper rejection of the Kyoto Protocol a year ago and the EPA's new climate report, "in the interim there has been no new science to cause the shift in viewpoint".
6jun02 The Kyoto Protocol and Global Warming:
What Does Science Say?
Sallie Baliunas – astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and deputy directory of Mount Wilson Observatory
Whereas the economic catastrophe that would occur as a result of implementing the Kyoto Protocol is a certainty, the likelihood of an environmental catastrophe resulting from a failure to implement Kyoto is extremely speculative.
1apr02 Energy Footprints
Kim Weissman
While the denizens of Washington and New York bask in their alternate energy, it won't be their countryside that is dominated by mile after mile of solar stations and wind farms; and it won't be large swaths of their fertile farmland that is seized by eminent domain to plant thousands of transmission towers and tens of thousands of miles of power lines.
24mar02 The "Complete" Green Matrix
Diane Alden
The citizens of the United States need to decide whether to take the red pill or the blue pill, because the "green cure" may not be to their liking.
4mar02 The Terrorists You Don't Hear About
Tom DeWeese
This group was responsible for an attack that resulted in a $5.3 million loss in 2001... the third most destructive only to the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks and only one of 137 acts for which it claimed credit.
4mar02 Are Humans Using Up Too Much Sun?
Alan Caruba
Follow me closely now because you will learn why virtually everything any environmentalist or ecologist tells you is the biggest pack of lies you have heard since your husband told you you're not getting fat or your wife told you she doesn't care you're going bald.
7feb02 The Cruelty In Klamath
Tom DeWeese
The cruelty perpetrated against some 1400 farm families in the Klamath Basin of Oregon was not simply a piece of bureaucratic bungling of the Bureau of Land Management. Hidden from public view was the dark hand of the United Nations' Environmental Program.
23jan02 Anti-Christ Of The Green Religion
David Thomas
A former member of Greenpeace, has been branded a traitor by the international environmental movement. His crime? He debunked almost all of its claims about the earth's perilous state. Now he is a marked man.
9jan02 Environmental Corruption:
A Cascade of Lies
Alan Caruba
The cascade of lies about everything environmental should, by now, have convinced the public that US government officials responsible for setting national policies and environmental groups seeking to determine what those policies should be cannot be trusted.
4jan02 Just How Crazy Are They?
Alan Caruba
In addition to the Islamic militants among us, we have a cadre of terrorists who need to be hunted and jailed before they become further emboldened to harm our lives and our nation.
1jan02 Desperately Trying to Scare You in 2002
Alan Caruba
The Earth is about 5.4 billion years old. It is, for all intents and purposes, an extraordinary self-regulating mechanism.
22oct01 The EcoTerrorist Anthrax Connection
Tom DeWeese
Most ecoterrorist activity seems to revolve around one group, Earth First! It was founded in 1979 by Dave Foreman who now serves on the Board of Directors of the Sierra Club.
8oct01 Toad-Throwing and Klamath Valley
Vin Suprynowicz
Congress was duped in 1973 into passing the Endangered Species Act by assurances it would be used primarily to make sure the continent's last grizzly bear, last bison, or last bald eagle wasn't shot as a pest and sold for dog food.
7oct01 America's Fifth Column in the New Century
Alan Caruba
Most Americans are blind to just how deep the anti-American, pro-communist agenda runs throughout the "environmental" movement. The Greens used the 9/11 terror attacks as an opportunity condemn capitalism and the American economic success.
21sep01 The Green Taliban of America
Alan Caruba
Until Americans understand how Greens really think, they will never understand that they are united against everything that has made America great. They oppose our economic system and they oppose virtually every aspect of the lifestyle it provides.
7sep01 PETA, Sharks, and A Cure for Cancer
Tom DeWeese
"I keep waiting for some public outrage that will ultimately expose PETA as vicious enemies of the human race, but it never seems to come."
7aug01 When the Eagles Return
The fact is that the mighty green machine has been taking no prisoners for nearly two decades. That machine, as I have said countless times before, is composed of the federal government, the environmental movement and the major foundations.
3aug01 Big Oil, Caribou, and Greed – The debate over ANWR
Sure, it's possible to think this spot is beautiful. But the truth is that the beauty of the coastal plain isn't really in the eye of the beholder, it's in the imagination of the angst-ridden liberals who have never beheld the thing and never will.
1aug01 Kyoto: a global tax on American prosperity
From the beginning it has been clear that the particular mechanisms of the Kyoto Treaty were not designed to alter the global climate in any meaningful way (even if that were possible), but was rather a manifestation of the hatred of economic progress in general, and American prosperity in particular.
23jul01 "Mommy says I can't eat, but fish can."
"…the hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions, possibly billions, of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species:
Homo sapiens... us." — VHEMT
13jul01 Shark vs. Boy
It is time, however, to get to the heart of the matter between the Greens and the rest of us: They do not much like human beings, and they care little about how much pain their policies bring to them.
13jun01 Kyoto Nonsense
Neal Boortz
Remember – it's not so much what the media tells you. It's also about what the media doesn't tell you. The environmental movement has become home to the old communist and socialist movements once left homeless by the collapse of the Soviet Union.
28may01 The Myth of Alternative Energy
William Tucker
As environmentalists roam up and down the country opposing every power plant in sight and insisting we can live in a world run on "renewable resources," they are almost invariably quoting Amory Lovins, an obscure genius who is also a bit of a crackpot.
26may01 A New Terrorism Comes Of Age
Alan Caruba
Eco-terrorists and animal rights terrorists are no longer just a small bunch of "loonies", but rather an increasingly well organized and funded group of organizations.
19may01 Court Ties Economic Impact to Endangered Species Areas
A U.S. appellate court has determined that when the Fish and Wildlife Service designates critical habitat for an endangered species, it must analyze and consider the full economic impact on the area in which the habitat is located.
9may01 For The Record
ANWAR — a little perspective from an Alaskan citizen
6may01 Above The Law
Kim Weissman unearths the tangled trail of the arsenic in the water "crisis" and reveals the contempt shown for the law by the EPA, Clinton, and Carol Browner and the efforts by the Landmark Legal Foundation to find the truth.
26apr01 Poisoned Water
Kim Weissman
The environmental movement has crossed the line from intelligent and reasoned conservation and pollution control, into outright fanaticism with an utter disregard for the human losses or financial costs that their agenda imposes.
19apr01 Who Needs Earth Day?
Henry Lamb
Those who need this kind of celebration actually need to be re-tested, or to get therapy, or both. Neither their words delivered from a podium, nor their antics delivered to the media, can help or hinder the planet.
8apr01 Vehement Environmentalism
Kim Weissman
All the elderly investors who just saw a significant portion of their retirement nest egg go up in environmentalist smoke can go whine to the local democrat congressman they helped put in office.
4apr01 Arsenic and Old Logic
Mona Charen
According to the EPA, reducing arsenic levels to 10 parts per billion will save 28 statistical lives per year. We should measure these things rationally and not lose our heads over every toxin that lurks in the muck.
3apr01 The Truth about Kyoto: Do the Math
Patrick J. Michaels
"Do the math. Kyoto was a bad deal, whether or not you care about global warming. And it's a good deal that finally there is a world leader with the courage to tell the truth."
25mar01 What Energy Crisis?
Kim Weissman
You want to see some of the dirtiest, most contaminated places on earth? Visit the former Soviet Union or communist China, where environmental destruction is the legacy of socialist central planning.
10mar01 We Thought The Eco-Nuts Lost!
The whole notion of a scientific consensus [on global warming] has been contrived to disguise the genuine disagreement among scientists on a number of different issues. ..To think that hundreds of scientists could be in full agreement in dozens of separate disciplines is ridiculous.
28jan01 Driving Them Off the Land – Eviction of Western Ranchers 'Amounts to a War of Religions'
Did the Founding Fathers really intend for the federal government to permanently own 87% of Nevada ... 68% of Utah ... 50% of the land mass of California ... for as long as the sun shall shine?
28jan01 The Biggest Liars On Earth:
The UN's Global Warming Panel
Let's understand something. The members of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are not scientists ... they are bureaucrats.
14jan01 The State-Established Religion
of Environmentalism
Nevada's Department of Wildlife is purposefully excluding scientific reports that counter their "muddle-headed" plans to protect predators such as coyote and raven.
1jan01 Paying The Piper – The Hidden Costs Of Environmentalism
It seems like a cold hard bite of reality is leaving a bitter taste in many global conservationists' mouths.
23dec00 Did a Global Cooling Usher in the Dark Ages?
S. Fred Singer
As much of the nation shivers under an early and harsh winter,   history's lesson is plain to see: We should be fearing a colder climate not a warmer one.
19aug00 Destroyer of Worlds
No matter what term is in vogue at the time, it is still a pagan utopian dream rooted in the worship of nature, its roots planted deep in early human history.
12aug00 Banning DDT is Eco-Colonialism
As the United Nations pushes a global ban on DDT, developing countries resist the loss of this most effective weapon against malaria.
16jul00 Federal Suit is Act 1 in Theater of the Absurd
"United States of America, Plaintiff, vs. One Ford Tractor, et al, Defendant(s)" marks one of the most bizarre episodes in modern environmentalism.
16jun00 EPA's Way of Pulling the Pesticide Plug
The EPA's action against Dursban is primarily an exercise in convenient ethics coupled with the arbitrariness of safety factors to fulfill the intellectually and morally bankrupt anti-pesticide agenda.
19may00 Extremists Want Millions More Acres Fenced Off
Radical environmentalists want to redefine the meaning of "wilderness" while they still control the Clinton/Gore administration
19apr00 Book has the Audacity to Question the Premise Upon Which the Federal EPA has Built its Ever-Growing Power
By unearthing fascinating records from the first 70 years of this century, author shows convincingly that America was cleaning up its environment
just as fast before EPA came along as afterwards
5mar00 It Must Be Our Fault
While domestic oil reserves sit idle within the United States, we import massive amounts of the oil we use from overseas.
