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.

The West Antarctic ice sheet, the biggest mass of ice in the world, has been growing since the end of the nineteenth century. Marc Morano featured a post about a fascinating Chinese study from Dr. Patrick Michaels at the website of CFACT’s friend and ally the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The forthcoming study by six Chinese authors is […]
Global warming campaigners have done an effective job at convincing the media and much of the world that polar bears are dying out. It’s not true. In fact, thanks to a hunting ban, polar bears are a major conservation success story. Their population ballooned from around 5,000 in the 1960s to (depending on whose estimate) […]
The U.K. Guardian newspaper has for months been working to change the words we use to discuss climate and environmental issues. They just published their glossary. Prominent on the list is The Guardian’s formal adoption of the pejorative term “denier” and the elimination of the word “skeptic” to describe people attempting to correct the record on climate. In the pages […]
CFACT’s Undercover operative recently interviewed Nicolette Templier, aka “Miss New York Earth USA”, at the United Nations’ Civil Society Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. According to Templier, the “Miss Earth USA” organization is “a beauty pageant organization that focuses solely on environmental action.” Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to focus on environmental “facts.” Our investigative reporter […]
The United Nations will meet to discuss its dangerous “sustainability” agenda at a conference next week in Salt Lake City. CFACT will be there! UN bureaucrats, urban planners, and left-wing activists find our individual freedoms and prosperity unsustainable. They want us to give up thinking and choosing for ourselves, and move away from such bourgeois […]
Some pertinent points: Rainfall has been ABOVE AVERAGE in much of the Amazon Rain forest unless the rain forest has extended offshore, Panama has been below average something we see during lower than average ACE index hurricane seasons in the Main Development areas, as was forecast by my company in April. That was well seen. […]
People with the temerity to correct the record on climate change must be silenced. That’s the outrageous point of a new study published in the journal Nature Communication. “The time has arrived for professional journalists and editors to ameliorate the disproportionate attention given to (climate change contrarians) by focusing instead on career experts and relevant calls to action,” the […]
The Endangered Species Act is a perfect example of a good law gone wrong. The important goal of protecting biodiversity and helping species recover is all too often used by eco-gadflies to violate property rights and stifle economic activity. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Acting Director Margaret Everson said, “The Endangered Species Act has led […]
The United Nations is gravely worried about your hamburger. Yesterday, the Journal Nature carried a story with the provocative title “Eat less meat: UN climate change report calls for change in human diet.” As expected, the report created quite a buzz in both the mainstream and social media world. Marc Morano, CFACT’s director of communications and editor of […]
A modern economy requires the use of metals and minerals. Green zealots, because of their intense opposition to mining, are doing all they can to prevent us from getting these important metals here in the United States. Such strident “keep it in the ground” opposition to mining not only impacts our economy, but our national […]
America has never been cleaner or greener in the post-industrial revolution era. This week President Trump made a major speech showcasing the good health of America’s environment and gains made on his watch. Both are impressive. Read the full text of the President’s remarks, the full White House fact sheet on the environment, and commentary by CFACT’s Adam […]
The Obama presidency was an era of bureaucratic overreach. No bureaucratic agency was more arrogant, or heedless of its legal boundaries than EPA. No Obama regulation would have been more ruinous than the so-called “Clean” Power Plan. The “CPP” was so egregious that the Supreme Court put it on hold. Good thing. This week Administrator […]
A library has refused to shelve Gregory Wrightstone’s best-selling book Inconvenient Facts — The Science Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know, despite his being one of Northland Public Library’s own local authors! Have you got your copy yet from the CFACT store? Bias and censorship in schools, universities and the media have become massive problems. […]
Markets are efficient. Bureaucrats are not. That reality becomes all too painful when left-wing ideologues use government to control our energy. The Navajo Nation is bracing for a shocking blow to its well-being. The largest coal-fired electricity plant in the western United States is scheduled to shut down in December. That will cost the Navajos […]
