It’s rarely about the environment anymore
It’s about slashing our energy use, free enterprise, job creation, living standards and freedoms
Paul Driessen
Back in 1970, when I got involved in the first Earth Day and nascent environmental movement, we had real pollution problems. But over time, new laws, regulations, attitudes and technologies cleaned up our air, water and sloppy industry practices. By contrast, today’s battles are rarely about the environment.

Willing Seller A Myth
This (the article (click here) written 26 years ago) is what the English did to the Scots (The Highland Clearances), the Irish (Land Seizures) and the French (Nova Scotia). It is what the Chinese did to the Tibetans and what ISIS is doing to Christians. It is what the Germans began doing to Poles and what Japanese began doing to Phillipinoes, Koreans and Chinese when they occupied all or portions of those countries.

Obama misleads students about climate and energy
Climate change actually has little to do with energy choices

Bob Carter and Tom Harris

In his October 2 address on the economy at Northwestern University, President Barack Obama told students, “If we keep investing in clean energy technology, we won’t just put people to work assembling, raising and pounding into place the zero-carbon components of a clean energy age. We’ll reduce our carbon emissions and prevent the worst costs of climate change down the road.” Click here to continue.

Sue-and-Settle: Environmental Groups Keep Suing Despite Vast ESA Settlement Agreements -

Since the Endangered Species Act (ESA) passed in 1973, it has only managed a 2% success rate, due in part to abuse of the statute. Environmental groups overload the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) with far too many listing petitions, and then sue FWS for missing deadlines, diverting resources away from actual species recovery and into litigation and bureaucratic process.
