Deroy Murdock: Global Warmists Getting Hot Under Collar

Where is the warming?     As I start to write these words, I am on my Manhattan balcony savoring a Friday evening. It normally is oppressive this time of year. Stifling humidity and sweltering temperatures relentlessly squeeze New Yorkers in a brutal vice. The infernal stickiness typically keeps it from cooling down, even at night. It is not unusual     ...

Obama's Green-Energy Scams Leave Taxpayers In The Red

by Justin Sykes.       How we gave China a stimulus. It’s been more than five years since President Obama signed his misguided economic-stimulus package into law, creating green-energy subsidies and expanding others, but American taxpayers are still feeling its disastrous effects. This month a deal was reached between competing creditors of      ... MORE

Joel Kotkin: Politics Runs Real Energy Out Of California

Banking on expensive alternative energy.         More bleak economic news for the average Joe. The recent decision by Occidental Petroleum to move its headquarters to Houston from Los Angeles, where it was founded over a half-century ago, confirms the futility and delusion embodied in California's ultragreen energy policies.   ...

Historic Deep Freeze Proves Global Warming, Right?

Mike Adams on how everything is evidence.       Global warming is getting worse. It's so bad now that it has thrust most of North America into an historic deep freeze with plummeting temperatures that haven't been seen in decades. This is absolute proof that global warming is worsening, and the way I know that is because the same people  ... MORE

California Taxpayers To Subsidize Green Cars For The Poor

by Steven Greenhut.     One longtime critic of federal transportation spending once concluded that it would be less expensive for the government to buy every new transit rider a Jaguar XJ8 than it would be to build certain new rail systems. Unfortunately, California officials may not have realized that the idea of buying people new cars        ... MORE

Larry Bell: What The Global Warming Hysteria Ignores

What about 17 years of flat global temperatures?      The New York Times feverishly reported on August 10 that the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is about to issue another scary climate report. Dismissing the recent 17 years or so of flat global temperatures, the IPCC will assert that: “It is extremely    ... MORE

Deroy Murdock: Fracking - Clean And Green

Contrary to rumors, it’s environmentally friendly.   The only thing deeper than a natural-gas well is the ignorance of the anti-fracking crowd. Fracking — formally called hydraulic fracturing — involves briefly pumping water, sand, and chemicals into shale formations far below Earth’s surface and the aquifers that irrigate crops and quench  ...

John Ransom: Chevy Volt Heads For Fiery Crash

Another failure of central planning.        The good news for GM these days is that no one has been consumed in a fiery death due to engine compartment fires since the Chevy Volt was discovered to spontaneous combust after accidents shortly after production began. The bad news for the company is that while Chevy Volt sales in       ... MORE

Senator Uses Oklahoma Tornado To Pimp Her Carbon Tax

by Michael Bastasch.    California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer blamed the tornado that devastated Oklahoma on global warming during a Senate floor speech Tuesday, using the opportunity to push her own plan to tax carbon dioxide emissions. “This is climate change,” Boxer said. “This is climate change. We were warned about extreme    ... MORE

Louis Woodhill: The Folly Of Government Venture Capital

Another $171 million taxpayer dollars down the tubes. If you go to, you see a picture of a red Fisker Karma sedan and the words, “Welcome.  New Site coming soon.”  Ominously, if you click on the “Tomorrow” link at the top of the page, nothing happens.  In fact, none of the links on the page produce any    ...

Washington Times: Driving Toward Bankruptcy

Crony capitalism is in the driver's seat. There aren’t many winners in the current economic climate. Most companies are struggling against the burdens of higher taxes, red tape and uncertainty, and there’s no opportunity to expand and prosper. Some companies, however, have found a shortcut through deep political connections to the Obama      ... MORE

Warming Advocates Struggle To Explain ... No Warming

by Rick Moran.    We've known since Climategate and the emails from the East Anglia climate center that warming advocates have been well aware of the lack of rising temperatures on the earth since at least 2000. Now, confronted with irrefutable evidence from one of global warming's biggest boosters - NASA - scientists who have based their careers and     ... MORE

Conn Carroll: American Energy Revolutionized By Fracking

As green energy failed.      It's hard to remember now that President Obama's agenda has degenerated into a sham gun control bill with loopholes big enough to drive a Mack truck through, but back in 2008, progressives had big dreams about how to reshape the entire U.S. economy, starting with the energy sector. For years, liberal     ... MORE

Global Warming: Was It Just A Beautiful Dream After All?

by Harry Binswanger.    Like most of you, I yearn for shorter winters, more shirt-sleeve weather, less lashing from frigid winds. As a confirmed New Yorker, I’m not willing to do what millions have done: move to the sunbelt. I want warmer weather here in the Big City. But I’ve grown old waiting for the promised global warming. I was 35 when      ... MORE

Rich Lowry: The New Climate Deniers

Climate change has become an obsession for some. There are few things sadder than the “climate denier.” He ignores the data and neglects the latest science. His rhetoric and policy proposals are dangerously disconnected from reality. He can’t recalibrate to take account of the latest evidence because, well, he’s a denier. The new climate deniers   ...
