“Evil” GE foods and “eco-friendly” Organics

  By Paul Driessen and Vijay Jayaraj Misrepresentations by radical greens promote myths of GE dangers and organic benefits Across the globe, genetically engineered (GE) crops face opposition from environmental and organic food activists, who claim the crops harm the environment and endanger human health.

The ethanol gravy train rolls on

The ethanol gravy train rolls on

  By Paul Driessen Like most people I’ve spoken with, I have no innate, inflexible antipathy to ethanol in gasoline. What upsets me are the deceptive claims used to justify adding mostly corn-based ethanol to this indispensable fuel; the way seriously harmful unintended consequences are brushed aside; and the insidious crony corporatist system the ethanol […]

Now they’re waging war on plastics!

  By Tom Harris Earth Day Network (EDN) chose “End Plastic Pollution” as their theme for this year’s April 22 Earth Day. It is just the tip of the anti-plastic activism that now consumes environmental extremists.

Is Climate Alarmist Consensus About to Shatter?

Climate Adaptation, Reparation and Restoration

Climate Adaptation, Reparation and Restoration

  By Paul Driessen This Earth Day (April 22) we needed to ask whether environmentalism has gone completely bonkers. Back in the 1970s, I skied Colorado’s cross-country and downhill slopes pretty regularly. Some years were incredible: many feet of snow as glorious to behold as to ski on. Other years, like 1977, I’d come around […]

The Double Standards Industry

The Double Standards Industry

    By Paul Driessen The double standards industry Concerns over impacts from energy projects disappear where “green” energy is involve It’s a good thing environmentalists have double standards – or they wouldn’t have any standards at all.   Empire State legislators worry that anything above the current 0.0001% methane in Earth’s atmosphere will cause […]

A good example is corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards on vehicles. Originally enacted in 1975 to offset the impacts of the […]

Climate Chaos Claims Continue Causing Consternation

Those fraudulent climate litigation shakedowns

By Paul Driessen The ultra liberal enclaves of New York City and San Francisco, Oakland, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Marin, and Imperial Beach, California all claim to be deeply worried about manmade climate cataclysms.
