The truth about so-called climate change


Now that the excitement over the news that 2017 was one of the hottest years on record have died down, it is time for a sober second thought.  Did the January 18 announcements by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that 2017 was the third-hottest year, and NASA’s claim that it was the second […]

Coal is invaluable for most of the world


Recently, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is holding three public listening sessions on the proposed repeal of the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan (CPP). The sessions will be on February 21 in Kansas City, February 28 in San Francisco, and March 27 in Gillette, Wyoming. If the listening sessions are anything […]

Obama’s policy on coal needs to stop


It was a stroke of public relations genius for President Donald Trump to release his National Security Strategy (NSS), a document that emphasizes energy security and energy dominance, on December 18, three days before the start of winter. It is this time of year, especially during a period of record-setting low temperatures such as the […]

Don’t waste money on failed UN policies


Dr. Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, summarized the problem the world faces with climate change policy: “Would you bet your paycheck on the weather forecast for tomorrow? If not, then why should this country bet billions on global warming predictions that have even less foundation?” Sowell is right to be skeptical. Meteorologists can’t forecast the […]

Gore wants to suppress climate debate


Overlooked in the debates about former Vice-President Al Gore’s global warming films, An Inconvenient Truth (2006) and An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power (2017), is the fact that truth is not possible in science. Scientific hypotheses, and even scientific theories, are not truth; they can be, and often are, wrong. Truth applies to mathematics, chess, […]

Dishonesty over climate change report


Between July 31 and September 24, climate experts from around the world are providing comments on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on 1.5°C Global Warming (SR15). We can expect SR15 to be highly biased and simply ignore findings that do not conform with the climate alarm. This is because, contrary to its original […]

Gore is wrong again about climate science


Al Gore expects us to believe that climate change science is settled. According to the former vice president, scientists know, with a high degree of certainty, that our emissions of greenhouse gases, 82 percent of which is carbon dioxide (CO2) in the United States, is causing dangerous climate change. The solution, Gore tells us, is […]

Spread the truth about climate science


On June 1, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the United Nations Paris Agreement on climate change. He correctly identified it as a very bad deal for America. In July 1997, the U.S. Senate reached a similar conclusion about the U.N. climate change policy-making process in general. Senators from across […]

Perry is correct about climate change


Energy Secretary Rick Perry did a remarkable thing recently: he expressed skepticism about the causes of climate change in a TV interview and, even after widespread condemnation from environmentalists and the press, he did it again a few days later before a major Senate committee. After telling a CNBC host on June 19 that he […]

Trump needs to kill the 1992 UN climate and Paris treaties


If President Donald Trump merely pulls the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, it will be like cutting the head off a dandelion. It will look good for a while until equally bad agreements quickly grow back when a Democrat occupies the White House again. Trump needs to dig up the […]
