Consumers Put the Brakes on Obama’s Fuel Goals

NPR published an interesting story: “Is Obama’s Hope For Better Fuel Economy Sputtering Out?” The story begins by telling us that the automobile manufacturers are claiming that Obama’s bailout was a “success.” There were high-fives this week from Detroit to Washington, D.C., as carmakers celebrated record auto sales. Americans bought 17.5 million cars and trucks in 2015. That’s a huge turnaround from 2009, and the Obama administration cheered the rebound as vindication of the president’s Read more […]

Dare We Hope the Courts will Defeat Climate Change in 2016?

The Hill reports that 2016 will be a year of court fights against the Obama Administration: “Obama’s climate agenda on trial.” A slate of major environmental rules rolled out by the Obama administration in 2015 will face serious challenges in the new year, as opponents look to beat back the president’s ambitious policies — a core piece of his legacy. In the lead-up to the landmark Paris climate talks in December — an event that yielded a first-of-its-kind global agreement to cut carbon Read more […]

The EPA’s Climate Warming Sermon for the Holiday Season

This video was posted last year on YouTube, and it was posted again this year at the Environmental Protection Agency’s website. While it was posted for Thanksgiving, CNS News blogged about it after Christmas. As you can see, it applies to the whole holiday season: The EPA’s text to go with the video: Most people don’t realize how much food they throw away every day — from uneaten leftovers to spoiled produce. More than 96% of the food we throw away ends up in landfills. Once in landfills, Read more […]

Believers In Global Warming See What They Want to Believe

Since I recently posted about government food and nutrition “science,” perhaps I should revisit bad science in another area. We are having unseasonably warm weather right now. Here is a recent Associated Press video: For at least one of the people interviewed, the weather is obviously the result of “global warming.” He complains of those who resist the belief. To Associated Press’s credit, the description of the video acknowledged the real scientific consensus: A weather pattern partly Read more […]

Congress Loses Climate Change because The Won’t Use the Power of the Purse

I can’t express adequately my contempt for Republicans who drove us deeper in debt to fund Obama’s (and their own) pet projects. Promising no government shutdown gave all the power to Obama. Here is just one example: The Hill reports, “Obama vetoes GOP push to kill climate rules.” President Obama has vetoed a pair of measures by congressional Republicans that would have overturned the main pillars of his landmark climate change rules for power plants. The decision was widely expected, and Obama Read more […]

More Evidence Global Warming Is a Hoax

This news story reminds me of a cartoon I once saw picturing Al Gore at the north poll trying to melt the ice with a hairdryer. The Daily Caller reports, “NOAA Relies On ‘Compromised’ Thermometers That Inflate US Warming Trend.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s reliance on poorly-sited weather stations to calculate surface temperatures is inflating the warming trend of the U.S. and maybe even the rest of the world, according to a landmark study looking at three decades Read more […]

Americans Cause Climate Change and the Result…Terrorism

Radical progressives have come up with a new theory on the cause of global terrorism…climate change.  You heard me correctly. Climate change causes global terrorism. International leaders, the Pope, the United States Chief Executive and other lawmaking members of Congress are taking this issue very seriously and are wasting no time.  These oracles are empirically certain that Americans (the world’s alleged second largest climate polluters) are causing terrorism but aren’t able to determine Read more […]

The New Slave Traders: The Coal Industry

We already know that protesters are being treated like terrorists at the Paris Climate Summit. But others are going to be mistreated if the climate summit succeeds. Fox News reports, “Coal industry treated like ‘slave traders’ by world leaders, says Euracoal boss.” In an unusually forceful statement sent out to press and members of Euracoal, the association’s secretary general, Brian Ricketts, lashed out at the talks in which world leaders agreed on huge cuts to greenhouse gas emissions. Euracoal Read more […]

John Kerry Spells out Reason for Western Nations to Invade the Rest

Thanks go to Chris Hodges for pointing this out. Here’s an excerpt posted at Breitbart.com: … The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what – that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrial nations went down to zero Read more […]

Criminally Stacked Committee Made Up Dietary Guidelines

One of the myths of government is that our rulers can get experts together to hammer out a scientific consensus. But rulers are arrogant and are at least as likely to hold onto a bundle of prejudices as anyone else. They stack the committees to confirm those prejudices. Ultimately, they usually manage to control enough funding to research that they can ensure there are no experts who refuse to conform to the fad of the day. Thus, Gless G. Lammi writes at Forbes, “Advisory Committee’s Violations Read more […]

‘Workplace Violence’ Crashes Planned Parenthood Pity Party

It’s been a week for juxtapositions, that’s for sure. First, a lone nut with a history of philandering, spousal abuse, drug usage, animal abuse and sexual deviancy, who seems to have had no contact with any church or any pro-life group, kills people near a Planned Parenthood clinic, utters the phrase “no more baby parts” and becomes an oxymoronic symbol for “Christian terrorism.” Then a married Muslim couple who recently spent a month in Saudi Arabia, who officials say had been “radicalized” Read more […]

The Paris Climate Summit Is a Bush Legacy

Politico has an interesting story that reveals, among other things, why conservatives should work to defeat Jeb Bush: “Who gets credit for climate accord? W, that’s who.” You read that right. The very same Republican president who doubted global warming science and fought new Environmental Protection Agency climate policies all the way to the Supreme Court merits a spot in the history books for kick-starting the very same negotiations that are about to bear fruit in Paris. The story never brings Read more […]
