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. Constellation Energy, for example, supports Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposal to tax carbon dioxide emissions of electricity generators. The tax would force the closing of… Continue Reading

A Little Learning on Methane and Climate Change

by William Happer Before leaving for a week of virtue-signaling at the COP27 climate conference with other world elites, President Joe Biden would have done well to reread Hans Christian Anderson’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” “In the great city where he [the Emperor] lived, life was always gay,” Anderson wrote. “Every day many strangers… Continue Reading

TOMB: Latest RGGI Lawsuit Highlights Increases in Electricity Prices

by Gordon Tomb Already struggling to cope with higher energy bills, Pennsylvanians are now experiencing double-digit rate hikes this fall. In September, some suppliers increased electricity prices another 19 percent, citing inflation and energy costs. Pennsylvanians need relief, but Gov. Tom Wolf’s unilateral action will drive energy bills even higher. Worse yet, a new lawsuit highlights how Wolf’s plan—while claiming… Continue Reading

Earth records 600 millionth consecutive cooler-than-average month

The Earth just had its 600 millionth straight cooler-than-average month thanks to naturally-driven cooling. An historical reconstruction of the Earth’s temperature by Northwestern University Adjunct Professor Dr. Christopher Scotese provides an illuminating and surprising comparison of today’s temperatures to that of the past. And it’s not what you think. According to Dr. Scotese the Earth “has alternated… Continue Reading

Wind turbines, solar panels, electric cars, and so… Continue Reading

A Personal Odyssey from the Population Bomb to the Climate Crisis (The Climate Crisis Lie)

by Norman Rogers In the early 1970s I was a disaffected youth. I began working at the nonprofit Zero Population Growth. We promoted the idea that exploding human population would soon make the world uninhabitable. The president of our organization went on the Johnny Carson television show. Sacks of mail, often with checks, arrived. The… Continue Reading

The Dangers Of Climate Policy

by Bruce Everett The fear of catastrophic climate change is everywhere today, including on the Cape. Well-intentioned people are working tirelessly in our schools, local governments and non-profits to promote clean energy and save the planet. What could be wrong with that? Quite a lot, actually. Let’s start with the science. Carbon dioxide (CO2), erroneously… Continue Reading

Fossil Fuels Are the Greenest of Energy Sources

by Gregory Wrightstone A 35-year veteran of the global warming debate says fossil fuels are the “greenest” of energy sources. In a recently published paper, Dr. Indur Goklany notes that carbon dioxide emissions from industrial activity and transportation have increased plant growth and that fertilizers and pesticides derived from fossil fuels have boosted crop yields… Continue Reading
