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 […]
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 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 […]
When the UN released a report claiming we are in for mass species extinction, CFACT’s Marc Morano checked the facts, posted them at Climate Depot and spoke about what he learned on Fox News. Rolling Stone Magazine does not want you to hear what Marc learned. They called him a “quack,” and demanded he be censored and […]
Climate alarmists often accuse skeptics, like myself and independent groups like CFACT, of being in the pay of Big Oil. This is completely false — we do not receive even a dime from them. It is part of the green fairy tale that skepticism only exists because the oil companies are funding it. That Exxon-Mobil […]
Utilities are starting to experiment with adding batteries to wind and solar projects. These storage projects are feeding the mistaken belief that batteries can cure the intermittency that makes wind and solar unworkable as a reliable source of power. The reality is that these battery projects are trivial in size compared to what would actually […]
BY DR. JAY LEHR: We are confident that all of our readers have read or heard for a number of years that 97% of all scientists believe that mankind has played a role in changing the earth’s climate. While it should have been recognized long ago as an urban myth, one of those stories that […]
Rejecting a claim by Philadelphia-based Clean Air Council and attorneys representing two Pennsylvania school boys that people have a constitutionally guaranteed due process right to a “life-sustaining climate,” a federal Judge has dismissed a bizarre legal case challenging the Trump administration’s climate policies. In his Fen. 19 decision, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Diamond said […]
Congratulations President Trump on having the interest in and courage to ask that the American people be given the benefits of a fact based and unbiased examination of the topic of climate change. Your Presidential Committee on Climate Security (PCCS) holds the first promise of an open, and fact-based examination of the much talked about, […]
