Green Energy Poverty Week

Green Energy Poverty Week

A week dedicated to topics that underscore impacts environmentalists don’t want to discuss By Paul Driessen April 22 was Earth Day, the March for Science and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate […]

Commentary: Real science must guide policy

Commentary: Real science must guide policy

. By Paul Driessen Climate alarmists use faulty science and bald assertions to demand end to fossil fuels All too many alarmist climate scientists have received millions in taxpayer grants over the years, relied on computer models that do not reflect real-world observations, attacked and refused to debate scientists who disagree with manmade climate cataclysm claims, […]

Pretend conservatives for not so clean energy

Pretend conservatives for not so clean energy

By Paul Driessen Far-left ‘charitable’ foundations give millions to ‘conservative’ groups to drive climate agenda More and more conservatives are proclaiming the virtues of clean energy. At least that’s what some groups want you to believe. In reality, far-left “charitable” foundations have given pretend conservatives millions of dollars to advance a climate chaos, renewable energy agenda […]

The social cost of carbon regulations

The social cost of carbon regulations

. By Paul Driessen and Roger Bezdek Anti-fossil fuel SCC relies on garbage models, ignores carbon benefits and hurts the poor “If you could pick just one thing to reduce poverty, by far you would pick energy,” Bill Gates has said. “Access to energy is absolutely fundamental in the struggle against poverty,” World Bank VP Rachel […]

The silver-tongued liars’ playbook   

The silver-tongued liars’ playbook   

. By Paul Driessen Coal ash scare stories are the latest tactic in their long war on coal-fueled electricity generation    Coal-fired power plant scrubbers now remove 80-90 % of airborne particulate, mercury, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and other pollutants. But that means “fly ash” and noncombustible residues (what we used to call clinkers) must be […]

Financial Stability Board’s Climate Cabal expands power and wealth, by targeting financial and insurance industries

Financial Stability Board’s Climate Cabal expands power and wealth, by targeting financial and insurance industries

. By Paul Driessen The $1.5-trillion Climate Crisis industry is not about to go quiet into that dark night, or to strut but an hour upon the stage, to then be heard no more. In these desperate times, it is unleashing even more sound and fury, and assaulting new targets, in a frantic effort to expand […]

Those “devastating” EPA reductions: Budget and personnel cuts reflect environmental progress and essential regulatory reforms

Those “devastating” EPA reductions: Budget and personnel cuts reflect environmental progress and essential regulatory reforms

By Paul Driessen The Trump White House wants significant reductions at the Environmental Protection Agency: two dozen or more programs, including a dozen dealing with President Obama’s climate initiatives; a 20% downsizing in EPA’s 15,000-person workforce; and a one-fourth reduction in its $8.1 billion budget. The plan requires congressional approval, and thus is hardly a […]

The hidden agendas of sustainability illusions: Absurd, impractical sustainability precepts are actually a prescription for government control

The hidden agendas of sustainability illusions: Absurd, impractical sustainability precepts are actually a prescription for government control

By Paul Driessen As President Trump downgrades the relevance of Obama era climate change and anti-fossil fuel policies, many environmentalists are directing attention to “sustainable development.” 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 […]

Conservation – not  more control

Conservation – not  more control

By Paul Driessen Collusive lawsuits helped control more US lands. Congress must repeal and replace the ESA. President Obama’s parting edicts betrayed Israel and commuted prison sentences for terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera and traitor Bradley/Chelsea Manning. Another abused the Antiquities Act yet again, by banning economic use on an additional 1.7 million acres in Utah, where […]

Safe and healthy (not pristine) air

Safe and healthy (not pristine) air

By Paul Driessen Federal air quality rules must be based on science – not used to stifle energy and industry It’s called the Clean Air Act, but it was never intended to ensure pure, pristine air. Congress wanted America to have safe, healthy air, and regulations based on solid scientific and medical studies. The law […]
