“I can confidently say there is no real climate crisis” – John Clauser,
‘Caught-Red-Handed’: Scientists Call for Full Retraction of Nature’s Proximal Origin SARS-CoV-2 Paper, as Fraud Accusations Mount
“[The] main thing still in my mind is that the lab escape version of this is so friggin’ likely to have happened because they were already doing this type of work and the molecular data is fully consistent with that scenario,” Andersen said to his colleagues, according to a report from Public, which published a series of Slack messages between the authors.
Answers to: “Do you believe in climate change?” “Are you a climate denier?” “Will you listen to the scientists on climate change?” And more!
“Green energy” has 2 problems: 1) It’s not really energy: It doesn’t provide reliable energy. 2) It’s not really green: It has a huge “environmental impact.”
In his 2022 book Fossil Future, Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress argues that fossil fuels are one of the greatest benefits to human civilization ever and that no viable substitutes exist, at least for now.
Lawmakers and their constituents don’t need to be climate scientists to understand why.
America can stop the decline of our grid and move toward low-cost, reliable, and cleaner electricity by ending all preferences for unreliable electricity.
In Fossil Future, Alex Epstein refutes literally hundreds of myths about fossil fuels. Here are 20 myths that 11,000,000 people heard on Joe Rogan’s podcast this year, refuted.
The system of public education could be abolished over the course of a generation, in a way that need not impose financial hardship on the parents of any child alive at the time of the abolition’s commencement.
Most climate scientists agree that we have some climate impact. This does not at all justify the rapid elimination of fossil fuels.
The idea that male-female gender is an arbitrary social construct is postmodern nonsense.
Instead of protecting our oil security by protecting oil industry freedom and backing it up with an ample reserve, President Biden has doubly damaged it by first attacking the oil industry’s freedom, then dangerously depleting our reserve for political purposes.
The fundamental goal of environmentalism is not clean air and clean water; rather, it is the demolition of technological/industrial civilization. Environmentalism’s goal is not the advancement of human health, human happiness, and human life; rather, it is a subhuman world where “nature” is worshipped like the totem of some primitive religion.
California officials are needlessly inflicting huge risks, costs, and intrusions on Californians, rather than relying on proven adaptation at a much lower cost and disruption.
How human progress, and the use of fossil fuels, has made our environment cleaner and healthier.
A carbon tax would raise energy prices, make every American industry less competitive, and offshore our CO2 emissions to the countries that outcompete us.
Anti-fossil-fuel politicians, like Rep. Cori Bush, tried to discredit Alex Epstein’s Congressional testimony on energy security using 100% false personal attacks. They failed, and all such future attempts will fail.
The lights of our cities and monuments are a symbol of human achievement, of what mankind has accomplished in rising from the cave to the skyscraper. Earth Hour presents the disturbing spectacle of people celebrating those lights being extinguished. Earth Hour symbolizes the renunciation of industrial civilization.
A truly moral justification for property rights in space.
The essence of Jacobin Magazine’s argument is that it isn’t fair that some get to enjoy things most of us can’t afford. If everyone can’t enjoy luxuries, then nobody should be allowed to. This is an example of what Ayn Rand called “hatred of the good for being the good.”
In Ehrlich’s worldview, humanity only transgresses and can only cause harm. In Simon’s view, humanity takes primacy and the sources of its enrichment also repair many harms done to the environment, and eventually allows improvements.
Elon Musk’s mistakes should be viewed in the context of his achievements. Musk has contributed to human flourishing not only by developing Tesla and SpaceX and co-founding Open AI. By taking over Twitter and shaking it up, he has exposed the government’s violations of free speech.
Specific resources are limited. There’s only so much oil, land and water. But resources, in general, are unlimited — or rather, limited only by human ingenuity.
To Anti-Capitalists, Climate Change Activism is Just a Pretext for an Authoritarian “Planned” Economy
