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 […]

Reality-based climate forecasting

Reality-based climate forecasting

By Paul Driessen Continuing to focus on carbon dioxide as the driving force will just bring more bogus predictions These days, even shipwreck museums showcase evidence of climate change. After diving recently among Key West’s fabled ship-destroying barrier reefs, I immersed myself in exhibits from the Nuestra Senora de Atocha, the fabled Spanish galleon that foundered […]

Another good target for EPA reform

Another good target for EPA reform

By Paul Driessen Europe gives Trump Administration excellent tutorials on how not to regulate pesticides With reform-minded folks in charge of the Executive and Legislative Branches, unelected, unaccountable, un-removable bureaucrats may soon be exerting far less power over our policies, regulations, lives and livelihoods. Energy and climate are high on the fix-it list. Another important topic […]

Sea level rise – or land subsidence?

Sea level rise – or land subsidence?

Alarmist claims about rising seas inundating coastal areas blame the wrong culprit In his 2006 Inconvenient Truth mockumentary, Al Gore infamously predicted melting ice caps would cause oceans to rise “up to 20 feet” (6.1 meters) “in the near future.” Kevin Costner’s 1995 “action thriller” Water World presumed totally melting planetary ice would almost submerge […]
