Is Small Particle Air Pollution Really Killing Americans?

July 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

Unnoticed by most citizens, last week the United States Senate introduced the “Secret Science Reform Act of 2015.” The act is aimed at the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) practice of refusing to disclose data from scientific studies that support new pollution regulations. The act indirectly questions the EPA assertion that Americans are dying today from… Read more

Lessons from Europe—Recipe for a High Cost Energy System

May 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

While President Obama promotes renewable energy and members of Congress argue about energy policy, a renewable energy disaster is unfolding in Europe. Driven by a desire to halt climate change, Europe has created a high-cost energy system where everyone loses. U.S. policy leaders should learn from the debacle occurring overseas. European energy policy today is… Read more

“Buy Locally”—Horse and Buggy Advice from the Green Movement

April 21, 2015 // 0 Comments

“Buy locally” is among the most foolish edicts in the long list of commandments from today’s environmental movement. Local sourcing is proposed by our universities as the solution for saving the rain forests, reducing pollution and halting global warming. We’d expect such advice from an out-of-touch grandparent, but not from our intellectual leaders. The website… Read more

States Should Defy Unlawful EPA Carbon Dioxide Rules

March 18, 2015 // 0 Comments

Last June, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed its Clean Power Plan as a nationwide regulation to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from electrical power plants. Comments to the EPA have now been submitted, and it’s not a surprise that a majority of state governments oppose the plan. In the best interests of US citizens,… Read more

Petroleum: A Magnificent Material Much Maligned

February 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

In today’s society, the use of petroleum is under attack as never before. But contrary to the cries of critics, petroleum and the things people can do with petroleum constitute a modern miracle and a foundation of modern society. Last year, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations called for the world… Read more

2014: Year of Futility in the Fight Against Climate Change

December 29, 2014 // 0 Comments

The year 2014 was another year of futility in the fight against climate change. Climatists redoubled efforts to convince citizens that urgent action is needed to stop dangerous global warming. But the gap between public warnings and actual events produced an endless stream of climate irony. January began with a frosty bang as an arctic… Read more

A Rare Debate on the “Settled Science” of Climate Change

October 2, 2014 // 0 Comments

In 1997 during the Kyoto Protocol Treaty negotiations in Japan, Dr. Robert Watson, then Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was asked about scientists who challenge United Nations conclusions that global warming was man-made. He answered, “The science is settled…we’re not going to reopen it here.” Thus began one of the greatest propaganda… Read more

Environmental Groups Have Lost the War Against Fracking

June 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a technique to remove natural gas and oil from shale formations, has been under withering assault from environmental groups for much of the last decade. Fracking has been blamed for contamination of drinking water, air pollution, earthquakes, water shortages, global warming, radiation discharge, and even cancer. But it appears that environmentalists… Read more

America’s Power Grid at the Limit: The Road to Electrical Blackouts

April 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

Americans take electricity for granted. Electricity powers our lights, our computers, our offices, and our industries. But misguided environmental policies are eroding the reliability of our power system. This past winter, bitterly cold weather placed massive stress on the US electrical system―and the system almost broke. On January 7 in the midst of the polar… Read more
