Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm?
Is it true that 97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is real?
Let poor countries grow rich, and in due course they will, too, look after their forests.
Instead of succumbing to the eternal alarmism that should undermine ecologists’ credibility, we should accept that maybe – just maybe – the world is getting better. And much-reviled capitalist markets are, in no small feat, to thank for that.
Who counts as green? Whose debt should be subsidized?
An efficiency-minded environmentalist could object that this trip shouldn’t be made, a Marxist-leaning commentator that this was an example of the horrible waste and misallocation of the capitalist system.
A Socialist “Green New Deal” Will Destroy It
What angers most people about climate alarmists is their doublethink, cognitive dissonance, and ability to rationalize their own behavior.
Wouldn’t an actual sacrifice involve the protestors living with the severely diminished energy usage that they are demanding?
Once in a while environmentalists reveal their true agenda.
Governments want to keep control… Carbon dioxide becomes that molecule by which (they) can take control of your lives.
Today’s wild predictions about climate doom are likely to be just as true as yesteryear’s. The major difference is today’s Americans are far more gullible and more likely to spend trillions fighting global warming.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of Herman Melville, who is best known as the author of Moby Dick. In his famous novel Melville tells the story of a whaling ship captain obsessed with taking his revenge on a great white whale. The novel is, today, a hallmark of...
Turning our world into one in which practically the entire human race is prohibited from acting for its self-interest on the basis of everyone’s independent intelligence is a formula for mass extinction.

The Green New Deal’s goal is to move America to zero carbon emissions in 10 years.
House Resolution 109 “Recognizing the Duty of the Federal Government to Create a Green New Deal,” has a long list of sponsoring congresspersons who seem to be not much different from that child in the toy store.

The New York Times and the scientists it cites in “U.S. Climate Report Warns of Damaged Environment and Shrinking Economy”, either do not understand simple mathematics, or rely on the ignorance of their readers to create a silly scaremongering headline over an absurd statistic.
