After Paris, Trump and Congress must still act to put American economy first

By Natalia Castro and Robert Romano Somebody should tell liberals having a collectivist heart attack over President Donald Trump withdrawing the U.S from the Paris Climate Accord that it was largely non-binding — nowhere does the agreement outline specific, mandatory targets for reducing climate emissions.

Buyer beware: Subsidy-driven solar industry a bubble waiting to burst

By Rick Manning Automotive research company Edmunds warned that the elimination of the $7,500 U.S. tax credit for electric vehicles (EV) is, “likely to kill the EV market” according to Bloomberg.
