Growth, trade, economic well-being and yes, fossil fuels are the best protection we have from a nature that isn’t nice – so in the name of sustainability, let’s have more of those things.
The rhetoric for a “climate change catastrophe” has been around for decades. When warming didn’t happen, the rhetoric changed to threats of freezing, which morphed back to warming.
Climate change is real. It’s a problem, but I doubt that it’s “an existential threat.” Saying that makes alarmists mad.

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?
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.
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.
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.
With climate alarmism and “extinction” protests now in the mainstream, it is no wonder that most people consider the alleged man-made catastrophic climate change an established fact, and advocate curtailing carbon “pollution” or even banning fossil fuels altogether.
