American Geophysical Union Scraps Science, Now Faith Based

By Norman Rogers I recently attended a 3-day science policy conference sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU). The AGU is an association of 62,000 scientists who study the Earth. Although the conference was allegedly about science policy, it resembled a cross between a Scientology rally and a workshop for lobbyists from the Mohair Council […]

How Much Warming Will the President’s Plan Avert? (Hint: It’s way too small to be detected or verified)

By Marlo Lewis President Obama unveiled his Climate Change Action Plan at Georgetown University today. As expected, the President advocated carbon dioxide (CO2) emission standards for new and existing coal-fired power plants, tough new energy efficiency standards for homes and appliances, and federal support for private renewable energy investment on public lands. Congress’s failure to approve his plan would have […]

University of Waterloo press release. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are to blame for global warming since the 1970s and not carbon dioxide, according to new research from the University of Waterloo published in the International Journal of Modern Physics B this week.

In Defense of Carbon Dioxide

By Harrison H. Schmitt and William Happer Of all of the world’s chemical compounds, none has a worse reputation than carbon dioxide. Thanks to the single-minded demonization of this natural and essential atmospheric gas by advocates of government control of energy production, the conventional wisdom about carbon dioxide is that it is a dangerous pollutant.

Earth Day Lesson: Environment is not Climate

Earth Day Lesson: Environment is not Climate

By Thomas P. Sheahen Earth Day is here again, but few people seem interested any more in global warming. It’s plausible to inquire whether people realize we’ve got a duty to protect the environment. Actually, “protecting the environment” is not necessarily the same topic as “global warming.” Confusion about the two needs to be cleared […]

Climate scientists struggle to explain warming slowdown

By: By Environment Correspondent Alister Doyle (Reuters) – Scientists are struggling to explain a slowdown in climate change that has exposed gaps in their understanding and defies a rise in global greenhouse gas emissions. Often focused on century-long trends, most climate models failed to predict that the temperature rise would slow, starting around 2000. Scientists […]

Green Cars Have a Dirty Little Secret

Producing and charging electric cars means heavy carbon-dioxide emissions. By: Bjorn Lomborg Electric cars are promoted as the chic harbinger of an environmentally benign future. Ads assure us of “zero emissions,” and President Obama has promised a million on the road by 2015. With sales for 2012 coming in at about 50,000, that million-car figure […]

In Their Own Words: Climate Alarmists Debunk Their "Science"

By: Larry Bell President Obama has put salvation from dreaded climate catastrophes on his action agenda hot list. During his inaugural address he said: “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations.” He went on to shame anyone who disagrees […]

European Cap-and-Trade Market takes a Nose-Dive

By Michael Bastasch The European Union’s cap-and-trade system took a huge hit on Thursday, with carbon prices plummeting a record 40 percent after a panel rejected a plan to delay emission permit sales to alleviate the overabundance of permits already in the system. “The market is panicking, really,” Daniel Rossetto, managing director of Climate Mundial, […]
