Nuke collusion with global warmists ill serves the public

by Gordon Tomb – May 18,2022 The nuclear power industry should focus more on addressing people’s irrational fear of low-level radiation rather than adding to the hysteria around global warming.

Climate change and the question of science

By Andy May – April 21, 2022 Promoters of the human-caused climate-change narrative sometimes ask skeptics if they believe in evolution or gravity. It is a way of ridiculing the skepticism.

How is the invasion of Ukraine related to carbon dioxide?

America’s Executive and Legislative Branches are full of ignorant politicians who need help from a 5th-grader. By the 5th grade, students have already learned that all animals and fungi consume oxygen (O2) and release carbon dioxide (CO2); conversely, all plants consume CO2 and expel O2. This is the Circle of Life; without it, our planet… Continue Reading

Unrealistic energy policy vs. people’s needs

By David L. Debertin – March 18, 2022 Joe Biden ran a campaign in 2020 based on the idea that fossil fuels are bad for everyone and that the companies producing such energy sources are, therefore, comprised of terrible people.

Green delusion no path to energy independence

By Gregory Wrightstone – March 14, 2022 When President Biden says that the U.S. will become energy independent by way of programs like the Green New Deal, perhaps the first question to ask is, “Does that make sense?” For any thinking person cognizant of even the basic energy facts, the answer should come back, “No.”… Continue Reading

Fossil Fuels Should Evoke Pride, Not Pandering, From Supporters

By Gregory Wrightstone – March 4, 2022 EQT Corp.

Ukraine Conflict Fueled by False “Green” Promises

By Vijay Jayaraj As surely as the path to hell is paved with good intentions, the slide to the Russia-Ukraine conflict was greased with specious promises of the green lobby. “A year ago, Ukraine’s fate was sealed, and that’s because (President Biden) gave up our energy-exporting business and allowed the Russians” to take it, said… Continue Reading

Supreme Court Must Curtail the EPA’s Regulatory Overreach Immediately

By Gregg Goodnight It is imperative that the Supreme Court stop the regulatory abuses enabled by the gross error of the 2007 ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA.

EPA’s Victims Looking to Prayer and Judicial Relief

By Gregory Wrightstone – February 23, 2022 Providing sustenance to the Biden administration’s “green” push to replace use of the U.S.’s abundant reserves of fossil fuels with unreliable and expensive wind and solar are regulators armed with a specious notion that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are pollutants.

Is Instagram Afraid of Truth?

By Rachel Kennedy – February 22, 2022 The censorship saga continues with tech giant Instagram targeting the CO2 Coalition, thereby preventing the organization from creating an account within their platform.

Commentary: RGGI is climatically meaningless

By Dr. Patrick Michaels – February 8, 2022 GOV. Glenn Youngkin raised quite a kerfuffle when, even before he took office, he said he would extricate Virginia from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). It is the right thing to do.
