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.
How human progress, and the use of fossil fuels, has made our environment cleaner and healthier.
It’s particularly absurd that Earth Day’s activists rarely mention the form of energy that could most quickly reduce greenhouse gases: nuclear power.

“Follow the science. Listen to the experts. Do what they tell you,” said Joe Biden, laughing at what he considered an obvious truth.
The environmentalists had a field day during the corona pandemic. The anti-human policies they have called for, protested for, disrupted societies and other people’s lives for, were suddenly implemented en masse, albeit on a temporary basis. Think of it as a trial for green policies.
It’s a curious fact that most of us know way more about sports and pop culture, than about the pioneers of scientific research. But the benefits we’ve all reaped from their work is incalculable, and it’s clear that our way out of this global pandemic will depend crucially on scientists working to understand, track, and combat the novel coronavirus.
We adults should be allowed to make our own decisions about what we do with our own bodies.
The Modern Warm Period from the late-19th to the early 21st centuries, is only trivially man-made and not pernicious, but rather, is overwhelmingly natural and fully benign.
Pandemic or not, the dream of abandoning fossil fuels is just a dream—a suicidal one
The last time government sought a “warp speed” vaccine, dead and paralyzed vaccine recipients were the tragic consequences.
Politicians “looking for something to do” like banning plastic bags routinely do more harm than good.
Are green jobs the bipartisan silver bullet they’re cracked up to be or are they instead a bipartisan mirage?
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?
Contrary to what almost everyone has said during the last three months – from media talking heads to presidents and epidemiologists and your neighbor – the growth of pandemics is not exponential. The number of people infected and number of dead don’t follow “exponential” curves. They follow S-shaped curves.
Let poor countries grow rich, and in due course they will, too, look after their forests.
To understand how Seegene accomplished the fast development and production of the testing kits, we must grasp the four crucial values at play—values that we cannot afford to lose, even during a pandemic: reason, independent thinking, production, and freedom.
Keynes’s futuristic vision also entailed a scientifically planned world of human heredity, ordered around a state policy of eugenics.
Why did the coronavirus produce a social and economic calamity, whereas the H1N1 (Swine flu) from ten years ago is barely remembered by most people.
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.
