Climate Hysterics Skyrocket

Climate Hysterics Skyrocket

  By Paul Driessen Call it climate one-upmanship. It seems everyone has to outdo previous climate chaos rhetoric. The “climate crisis” is the “existential threat of our time,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her House colleagues. We must “end the inaction and denial of science that threaten the planet and the future.” Former California Governor Jerry Brown […]

Let’s do follow the climate money!

Let’s do follow the climate money!

  By Paul Driessen The climate crisis industry incessantly claims that fossil fuel emissions are causing unprecedented temperature, climate and weather changes that pose existential threats to human civilization and our planet. The only solution, Climate Crisis, Inc. insists, is to eliminate the oil, coal and natural gas that provide 80% of the energy that makes […]

Starbucks thinks virtue signaling can “save the planet”

Starbucks thinks virtue signaling can “save the planet”

  By Paul Driessen I’d just passed the local Starbucks in Chicago, when my cell phone buzzed to say the Washington, DC City Council had unanimously agreed “in a preliminary vote” to require that 100% of the District’s electricity must come from renewable sources by 2032. How can they put hundreds of wind turbines and solar […]

Give Thanks That We No Longer Live on the Precipice

Give Thanks That We No Longer Live on the Precipice

  By Paul Driessen Fossil fuels helped humanity improve our health, living standards and longevity in just 200 years   Thanksgiving is a good time to express our sincere gratitude that we no longer “enjoy” the “simpler life of yesteryear.” As my grandmother said, “The only good thing about the good old days is that […]

What Next for U.S. Climate and Energy Policies?

What Next for U.S. Climate and Energy Policies?

  By Paul Driessen 2018 elections bring mixed messages and require climate and renewable energy reality check. The “Blue Wave” never really reached shore, the U.S. Senate is still in Republican hands, the House of Representatives flipped to Democratic control, Trump era deregulation and fossil fuel production efforts continue, several governorships and state houses went from […]

Blaming climate – ignoring incompetence

Blaming climate – ignoring incompetence

  By Paul Driessen Two more raging infernos in California have burned an area nearly ten times the size of Washington, DC. Wildlife and habitats have been torched.

The Party of Antifa Fascists?

The Party of Antifa Fascists?

By Paul Driessen   Do we really want these intolerant, violent mobs and their representatives running America? Who are the “Antifa” mobs? What are they doing to our country? How long will we tolerate them? The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings were their latest excuse for tantrums and intolerance. Dismissing fairness, propriety and due process, they […]

The IPCC’s latest climate hysteria

The IPCC’s latest climate hysteria

  By Paul Driessen Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report 15 claims the latest disaster “tipping point” is just 12 years away. If governments around the world fail to make “rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society,” human civilization and our planet face cataclysm, the IPCC asserts.   MIT Emeritus Professor of Atmospheric Physics Richard Lindzen […]

Rooting out scientific corruption

Rooting out scientific corruption

  by Paul Driessen Dr. Brian Wansink recently resigned from his position as Columbia University professor, eating behavior researcher and director of the Cornell “food lab.” A faculty investigation found that he had misreported research data, failed to preserve data and results properly, and employed dubious statistical techniques. A fellow faculty member accused him of “serious research […]

Keep Carbon Taxes in the Ground

Keep Carbon Taxes in the Ground

  by Paul Driessen Permanently bury these job-killing proposals, after pounding wooded stakes through their hearts The House of Representatives recently passed a sense of Congress resolution that a carbon tax would kill jobs, damage the revitalized U.S. economy, and disproportionately impact poor, minority and working class families. The vote also reflects the fact that […]
