45428-1024x768

The Environmental Protection Agency has a long history of going overboard, whether through absurd levels of regulation or outlandish claims of man-caused climate destruction.

According to reports, five EPA scientists solicited at […]

Geophysicist James Lovelock, who has dedicated much of his career over the past four decades to increasing adherence to the principles of man-caused global warming, is now apparently what his colleagues would derisively call a “denier.” In an interview with the BBC earlier this month, he contended that the United Nations ripped many of its recent climate […]

“Beware, the youth should also be told, of Climate Kings, Climate Queens, Climate Duces, and worse masquerading as infallible purveyors of truth. Climate Planning is the fatal conceit of Economic Planning on stilts.” As has been well reported in the media, public opinion polls rate climate-change concerns at the bottom of environmental issues, not just issues in general (Gallup: 14 of 15, analyzed here).
