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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

You Can’t Please Everybody–Hunting Nun Causes a Stir

I grew up in western Pennsylvania, not far from St. Mary’s where Sister John Paul Bauer is from.  A few days back, a Facebook friend from my childhood posted a photo of the hunting nun that he found on the Facebook page for the Hunting Pennsylvania community.  Sister John Paul bagged her buck on opening day of deer season, which is always the Monday after Thanksgiving.  Anyone from western Pennsylvania knows when opening day is because, even if you don’t hunt, you get the day off from school. 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 […]

Peer Review Isn’t All It’s Cracked Up to Be

Our writers have noted before that “peer review” does nothing but politically enforce groupthink about global warming and other topics. Often it helps superstition masquerade as science. We’re not the only ones who see “peer review” as a source of false confidence. According to The Telegraph: “Scientific peer reviews are a ‘sacred cow’ ready to be slaughtered, says former editor of BMJ.” The peer review process – long considered the gold standard of quality scientific research – is a “sacred Read more […]

Putin Against Climate Change Socialism

Russia’s media is not promoting climate change socialism and the Western media is trying to immunize people from their skepticism. It is a tragic irony that what was once the center of ideological socialism in the world is now standing against the global warming scam which Western elites are using to justify climate change socialism—wealth redistribution on the basis of environmentalism. Naturally, the Western media must mock and marginalize the country for this. Thus, the New York Times reports, Read more […]

Clean Power — How Obama’s “Green Legacy” Will Shut Down the Economy

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with support from President Obama, is heading up a move that would make the cost of electricity skyrocket and do unprecedented damage to the economy. President Obama is supporting the EPA’s move as a part of his own plan to leave a “green legacy” when he leaves the White House.  The cost of Obama’s legacy to the country may be worth it to him, but to average Americans who already pay too much for electricity, the prospects of these new policies are frightening! According Read more […]

Believing in Climate Change — A Litmus Test to Run for President

Imagine someone like Mike Huckabee, a professing Christian, a former governor, and a former presidential candidate saying that if someone doesn’t believe that life begins at conception, they are disqualifying themselves from public office.  The media would be up in arms.  He could not get away quietly with such remarks.  It seems that if you’re John Kerry, a Democrat, a former Senator, and the current Secretary of State, you can suggest that if one does not hold to the politically correct environmental Read more […]

Governor Cuomo “Astroturfs” to Give the Impression of Grassroots Support for Climate Change Issues

Governor Andrew Cuomo along with former Vice President Al Gore were on hand for a climate change event last week in which Governor Cuomo “astroturfed” the meeting to make it appear that there was vigorous grassroots support for it. The New York Post reported that: The workers said they left their jobs in the middle of the day Thursday and were paid their full salaries to hear Cuomo at Columbia University announce the state was joining a global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “I’d Read more […]
