A Champagne Toast to America’s withdrawal from the UN Paris Climate Accord

CFACT joined a champagne toast to America’s withdrawal from the UN’s Paris Climate Accord at the EIKE scientific conference in Dusseldorf. Conference-goers are united in their conviction that the UN imposes massive economic and political costs upon developed nations that cannot be justified by the benefits, of which there may be none, flowing from the […]

U.S. promoting fossil fuels at UN Climate Change Conference 2017

What’s missing at this year’s big UN climate conference? The American pavilion. When President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the UN’s Paris Climate Accord, he also cut back on the American presence in the UN process. Sure, the official State Department representatives are here, but the sideshow is tellingly absent. In past years the U.S. […]

Climate Not Cooperating: Global Temperatures Continue to Drop

It’s not easy to be a climate campaigner.  From Gore on down, their hysterical predictions never seem to come to pass. If they didn’t play in a rigged game, they’d have no game at all. Marc Morano compiles a host of their failed prophecies of doom-and-gloom over at CFACT’s award-winning Climate Depot news and information service. Make Climate […]

‘Organic’ competition — Competition, like fresh vegetables, is healthy!

Labeling food as “organic” is big business. So-called “organic” food has become popular, though people are often surprised by just how political “organic” agriculture is and how illusory any benefits often turn out to be. The keepers of the “organic” label can function as a guild, using the label as a a barrier to competition. […]

Fires far worse last century

The fires ravaging California have caused heart-rending devastation.  Forty-one people have lost their lives and damages are now estimated to top $3 billion. Never ones to let a “serious crisis go to waste,” Green pressure groups are shamelessly attributing the fires to global warming and claiming that this years fires ravaged the largest area ever […]

EPA’s Scott Pruitt to repeal ‘Clean Power Plan’

“The war against coal is over” was the message coming out of EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s visit with coal miners yesterday in Hazard, Kentucky. Today Pruitt signed a “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” beginning the regulatory process to repeal President Obama’s Orwellian-named “Clean Power Plan.” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt minced no words: “The Obama administration pushed […]

Solar Lies

Wind and solar lobbyists like to claim that their industry is “sustainable.” They couldn’t sustain them long without taxpayer subsidies and “feed-in tariffs” that guarantee them high prices for any electricity they produce whether power companies want it or not. Now Elon Musk’s solar power company is in hot water with the feds. The Wall […]

Scientists concede climate models wrong

The scientific evidence is mounting against the global warming narrative and climate campaigners don’t like it. In a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience, a group of scientists concede that climate computer models have been projecting warmer temperatures than observations show for decades. This is a crucial issue.  If the climate is not as sensitive […]

Wall Street Journal gets it wrong Trump still out of Paris Climate Agreement

The Wall Street Journal caused quite a kerfuffle over the weekend when it reported that “the Trump administration is considering staying in the Paris agreement.” They got it wrong. The WSJ based its reporting on statements by attendees at a climate conference in Montreal and by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who said the President is […]

Failure of the ‘Biofuels’ mandate

Can government ever admit a mistake and reform? Government “biofuel” mandates are a mistake we should eliminate. CFACT senior policy advisor Paul Driessen reminds us at CFACT.org of Ronald Reagan’s quip that, “the closest thing to earthly eternal life is a government program.” “The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS),” Driessen writes, “created under the 2005 Energy Policy Act and expanded […]

Hurricane Harvey — Devastating. Not unprecedented

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas as a category four hurricane, ending America’s 4,324 day major hurricane drought. Parts of Texas are in for a walloping. The National Weather Service described the hurricane as “about as fierce as they come” … and they are right. Hurricane Harvey is severe, entirely natural — and not unprecedented. […]

Fact Checking Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Sequel’

Al Gore’s new movie, An Inconvenient Sequel, is riddled with junk science and hysterical alarmism. Sadly, Gore plans to inflict his self-aggrandizing propaganda film on our kids. Now you have a means to fight back! Marc Morano posted a detailed review and fact check of Gore’s Hollywood-hyped ‘masterpiece’ over at CFACT’s Climate Depot. Marc pulled from our detailed […]
