Nothing reveals the disparities between the “haves” and the “have nots” like a climate conference. As I drove from Jerry Brown’s San Francisco global warming summit to view CFACT’s billboard campaign revealing the folly of California’s new 100% renewable / zero CO2 energy law, I saw something shocking. From the elevated highway above Oakland, I saw that […]
About Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow
In 1985, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) was founded to promote a positive voice on environment and development issues. Its co-founders, David Rothbard and Craig Rucker, believed very strongly that the power of the market combined with the applications of safe technologies could offer humanity practical solutions to many of the world’s pressing concerns. A number of leading scientists, academics, and policy leaders would also agree with them and soon joined their effort, along with thousands of citizens from around the country.
Today, this Washington DC-based group is a highly respected organization and its voice can be heard relentlessly infusing the environmental debate with a balanced perspective on environmental stewardship. With an influential and impressive scientific advisory board, aggressive collegiate program, CFACT Europe, United Nations representation, Adopt-A-Village project, Global Social Responsibility program, and “Just the Facts” national radio commentary, CFACT has and continues to offer genuine positive solutions to today’s global challenges.
The organization has been termed “invaluable” by the Arizona Republic, it has been lauded for its “effort to bring sound science to the environmental debate” by a former president of the National Academy of Sciences, and has been praised by a respected Boston Globe columnist for “a record of supplying absolutely solid information.” To learn more please visit: www.CFACT.org.

CFACT put up two new billboards during Governor Brown’s climate summit that tackle California’s ridiculous 100% renewables / zero emissions law head on. The billboards are on the Sierra Highway between Palmdale and Rosamond, California, just north of Los Angeles. The first depicts a road sign that warns, “Insane Electricity Prices Ahead.” That’s a no-brainer. […]
CFACT is at Jerry Brown’s “Global Climate Action Summit” in San Francisco. We staged a “march of the climate zombies,” mindless followers of “Al Gore” (played by me). The zombies moaned “save the Earth, stop global warming.” The point CFACT’s zombies’ were making was triple underscored when we arrived at San Francisco’s Moscone center and […]
By Ronald Stein. In pursuit of the emissions crusade, the Governor, Senate, and Assembly have demonstrated their lack of understanding of basic math, with Governor Brown signing Senate Bill 100 into law that now sets California on a path toward 100% renewables and “zero-carbon” sources in electricity by 2045. For wind farms that generate about […]
Batten down the hatches! A tsunami of global warming and “clean energy” propaganda is approaching! San Francisco is hosting the September 12-14 Global Climate Action Summit, a massive event at which “international and local leaders from states, regions, cities, businesses, investors and civil society … will be joined by national government leaders, scientists, students, nonprofits […]
In 2015, President Obama’s EPA released the final version of a rule they called the “Clean Power Plan.” The “CPP” was a wrong-headed mistake, guaranteed to make American power more expensive while not meaningfully cleaning anything. EPA is now working to rectify Obama’s CPP and has unveiled a replacement called the “Affordable Clean Energy” rule. […]
The Heritage Foundation featured Marc Morano in the below global warming video that has been viewed by millions. The usual suspects attacked it by doubling down on their unsound talking points and calling for the video’s removal. Marc has a unique talent for correcting the record on global warming. His knowledge of the issue is encyclopedic and […]
vir·tue sig·nal·ing the action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one’s good character or the moral correctness of one’s position on a particular issue. “it’s noticeable how often virtue signaling consists of saying you hate things” On last night’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Climate Depot founder Marc Morano joined guest-host David Menzies […]
Summer is the season where temperatures have historically hovered around a comfortable 70 degrees most days while occasionally reaching a slightly warm 80 degrees. Perhaps the Deep South would rarely reach 85 degrees in during a historic heatwave before global warming. But now summers are hot – real hot. And global warming is to blame. […]
Driven by Green ideology, the Obama Administration set unrealistic fuel standards (a.k.a. “CAFE” rules) for cars sold in America. Yesterday, the Trump Administration announced it is putting a freeze on their implementation before any serious damage is done. As recent as the Bush administration, the fuel efficiency standard was 27.5 miles per gallon. The Obama […]
Every turbine and panel that goes up raises the cost of electricity for the community it (allegedly) serves. Take a look at this hard-hitting editorial at CFACT.org that reveals the hypocrisy of the wind and solar crowd. Failing the laugh test: Wind, solar power make subsidy accusations The lavishly subsidized wind and solar power industries apparently don’t […]
People in highly developed countries take energy for granted. Try living without it. Millions of Africans still live without electricity. That needs to change. Fast. Two of CFACT’s most distinguished scholars, Paul Driessen and David Wojick, posted a pair of articles to CFACT.org you should know about. They discuss international development banks. The first titled “Multilateral anti-development […]
Is there a more self-contradictory term than “settled science?” Science should always be open to challenge and investigation. The scientific method demands that conclusions must follow facts. We must never adjust the facts to suit a conclusion. Sadly, this is not always the case. We posted an article at CFACT.org which highlights how “Stanford University medical professor […]
What happens when two items high on the Green agenda collide with each other? One thing for sure, it isn’t a pretty sight. Such is currently the case concerning “ozone depletion” and “global warming.” Through the 1987 Montreal Protocol, the Greens clamored for the adoption of refrigerant HFC’s, or hydrofluorocarbons, to replace older refrigerant chemicals […]
CFACT’s kicked off a new billboard on busy I-10 in Louisiana which reads, “Russia funneled Green groups millions of dollars to oppose fracking & cripple American energy,” and asks, “How’s that for COLLUSION?” The billboard campaign was spearheaded by CFACT’s Graham Beduze and Adam Houser. Russia wants to reduce and eliminate competition to its energy […]
