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.

https://www.heartland.org/policy-documents/why-scientists-disagree-about-global-warming Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming
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.

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 naďve and misguided.

100+ Papers Show the Sun Drives Climate
Proven by thousands of temperature datasets,
the earth’s climate fluctuated cyclically in the past, and there’s an overwhelming body of evidence
showing a close correlation with solar activity and other powerful natural factors.
If the IPCC had truly examined past temperature developments and
compared them to solar data, they’d have seen there is something remarkable there.

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.

Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts Climate Change Reconsidered II
Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC)Report: Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts. NIPCC seeks to objectively analyze and interpret data and facts without conforming to any specific agenda. This organizational structure and purpose stand in contrast to those of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is government-sponsored, politically motivated, and predisposed to believing that climate change is a problem in need of a U.N. solution.

7aug17MIT 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."
5mar17GIGO-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.
5feb17The 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.
11oct16Nobel 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.
8oct16Experts 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.
30sep16South 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.
23sep16Powering 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
23jul16Science 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.
7jun16Bill Nye the Scientism Guy
Facts Don’t Support His Hypothesis, So He Shouts Louder...

Dr. Willie Soon and Dr. István Markó
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.
17apr16RICO 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.

10mar16We 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.”
7mar16Last-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.
15feb16Audubon 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.
4dec15The 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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reveal Global Warming a Deliberate Fraud

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.

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.

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.
