2007: A great year for growing bad legislation like the ethanol mandate

By Marita Noon President Obama, and his administration, has enacted so many foolish and cost-increasing energy policies, it is easy to think that they are his purview alone. But in 2007, Republicans were just as guilty. Seeds were planted and a garden of bad legislation took root in a totally different energy environment. At the time, the growth seemed like […]

The EPA takes aim at Tesla, electric cars

By Tom Toth The cornerstone of personal independence and commerce in the modern world is motorized mobility — the car. Ever since Henry Ford’s Model T revolutionized travel in the United States over a hundred years ago, people have relied on the automobile for virtually every personal interaction and business expenditure. Today, the car may very well be at the […]

Australia shoots down climate lobby’s scare mongering

By Marita Noon Thursday, July 17 was a big news day. The world was shocked to learn that a Russian-made missile shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet with 298 on board as it flew over Ukraine en route to Kuala Lumpur from Amsterdam. Though flight 17 eclipsed the news cycle, there was another thing shot down on July 17. Almost […]

The Big All Star Chill: Is the Hockey stick broken?

By Rick Manning Baseball fans across the nation will be turning their eyes to Minneapolis, Minnesota for the next couple of days as the stars of the game congregate to showcase their skills. But one thing will be missing – summer weather. Almost as if the Michael Mann hockey stick had been turned upside down, Minneapolis is expected to see […]

Big Green’s lethal agenda

By Paul Driessen The outstanding presentations at this Ninth International Conference on Climate Change clearly demonstrate that activist climate science is increasingly devoid of evidence … increasingly removed from the scientific method – and yet is increasingly being used to devise, justify and impose policies, laws, and regulations that govern our lives. Indeed, rules formulated on the basis of “dangerous […]

More taxpayer dollars for green energy?

By Marita Noon There is an intentional tension in Washington. Our founding fathers planned that opposing views would balance each other out — a push-pull takes place. Spend. Don’t spend. This tug-of-war is seen, perhaps most obviously, in the so-called renewable energy field. After Solyndra, and the more than fifty other stimulus-funded green energy projects that have failed or are […]

The rise of Climate Change-ism

By Tom Toth Over a few decades modern climate science has evolved, or devolved, from scientific observation to dogma—or “Climate Change-ism.” Not unlike the roots of various other worldwide religious beliefs, this new faith sprouted from the alarmist cries that “The End is Neigh.” “Global Warming” (already a quaint, antiquated phrase) was trumpeted by Climate Change-ism’s founding prophet, former United […]

Climate change: Less of a scientific agenda and more of a political agenda

By Marita Noon Those who don’t believe in climate change are “a threat to the future,” says the Washington Post in a June 14 article on President Obama’s commencement address for the University of California-Irvine. Regarding the speech, the Associated Press reported: “President Obama said denying climate change is like arguing the moon is made of cheese.” He declared: “Scientists […]

EPA’s latest power grab is all wet

By Alan Caruba While our attention is focused on events in the Middle East, one of our own domestic regulators is doing everything in its power to kill the provision of electricity to the nation and, at the same time, to control every drop of water in the United States, an attack on its agricultural sector.  That heavy-handed over regulator […]

The regulatory death of energy in the U.S.

By Alan Caruba Before President Obama took office in 2009, the amount of electricity being produced by coal-fired utilities was approximately 50 percent of the total. Today it is approximately 40 percent and, as the Environmental Protection Agency regulations that took effect on June 2 are fully implemented, more such utilities are likely to close their doors. The basis for the regulations is utterly […]
