The truth about climate change

Prepared by the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, summarizing current knowledge on climate. 1) CO2 is a greenhouse gas and it has been rising steadily. How can you deny global warming? The Earth has warmed – and cooled – over the past 50 years. We’ve also experienced periods of “unusual” weather and “normal” weather, more frequent and intense storms and […]

Anti-Energy Activists Form Human Chain to Block Keystone Pipeline Construction in Texas

By Kevin Mooney — “Another Delay!” “Another Victory!” That’s how environmental activists describe efforts in Saltillo, Texas aimed at scuttling production of the Keystone Pipeline XL in the Southwestern U.S. Since this portion of the pipeline does not extend across an international border, President Obama cannot step in to delay construction. TransCanada, the pipeline company based in Alberta, has settled upon […]

Voting for wildlife extermination

By Paul Driessen — The latest justification for extending the industrial wind electricity production tax credit (PTC) is that we need an “all of the above” energy policy. The slogan falls flat, even when it’s expanded to “all of the above and below” — which is rarely the case with radical environmentalists and “progressive” politicians, who steadfastly oppose “any of […]

Dodging another UN bullet

By Paul Driessen and Duggan Flanakin — The Future We Want outlined a “common vision” for planetary “sustainable development,” as proclaimed by the “Organizing Partners of the Major Group of NGOs,” to guide the taxpayer-funded Rio+20 summit that ended last week in disarray and acrimony. The activist organizations that cobbled the document together filled it with hundreds of platitudes and […]

Rio+20 is greatest threat to biodiversity

99% of species and humans are ill served by the 0.1% UN and environmentalist elites By Paul Driessen and David Rothbard — The UN Conference on Sustainable Development is underway in Rio de Janeiro. This time, 20 years after the original 1992 Rio “Earth Summit,” thousands of politicians, bureaucrats and environmental activists are toning down references to “dangerous man-made climate […]

‘Sustainable justice’ = redistribution of scarcity

By Paul Driessen and Duggan Flanakin — Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”  He gave a clue to exactly what he had in mind when he told now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” Not necessarily – especially when activists, regulators, […]

EPA and radical environmentalists work to take America back to the 20th Century—B.C.

By Rebekah Rast — As if a war on America’s coal industry wasn’t enough, it turns out natural gas isn’t a friend to the environment either — or nuclear, hydro and in some cases wind power. What’s left? Solar?  But then there’s the uncertainty of how to properly dispose of solar panels if they break or lose their power because […]

Earth Day 2012: A Cloaked Celebration of Statism

By Adam Bitely — Each year on April 22, Americans celebrate Earth Day. While the “holiday” is dressed up as a day to preserve the Earth, it serves little more as a day to attack the benefits of capitalism and modern society. Does anyone really know what Earth Day is all about? Not only is April 22 Earth Day, it […]

The EPA has lost its way on warming

By Craig Rucker — Legal challenges by states and industry groups over the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) efforts to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases could and should be decided in the challengers’ favor. Whether that will happen in this highly politicized, semi-scientific matter of “dangerous manmade global warming and climate change” remains to be seen. Regardless of the […]

Durban due diligence

By Kelvin Kemm — From my vantage point here in South Africa, I could hardly miss the major build-up to the COP-17 United Nations world environment and climate conference, which is being held Nov. 28 to Dec. 9 in Durban, where I went to school and university. For weeks international news broadcasts spoke of “the road to Durban,” and people […]
