Needed: Accurate climate forecasts

  Focusing on carbon dioxide (because that’s where the money is) threatens forecasts, and lives Paul Driessen and David R. Legates President Obama’s agreement with China is about as credible as his “affordable care” pronouncements. Pleistocene glaciers repeatedly buried almost half of the Northern Hemisphere under a mile of ice. The Medieval Warm Period (~950-1250 […]

68th Anniversary of Disney’s ‘Song of the South’

  Is censorship of Hollywood motion pictures a thing of the past, or…. Is it still alive and well in the movie industry today against movies that are not politically correct? There are many who find some ‘R’ rated Hollywood movies of today equally offensive but I don’t think Hollywood is listening. Why would an […]

Voters Reject the Green Political Agenda

  What the midterm voters wanted was an economy that returned to its average 3.3% annual growth since the end of World War II. For six years of the Obama presidency, growth has all but disappeared. In 2013, as measured by the World Bank, it was barely 1.9% That translated into a lack of jobs, […]

Leftist Xenophobes Outraged Over Border Crossers

  Everyone has a border awareness tipping point. For some it was when illegal labor, imported from points south, depressed wages and made jobs a matter of culture instead of citizenship. For others it was when they lost loved ones to criminal or drunk-driving illegals. And for still others it was the adolescent invasion of […]

Jobs, prosperity and security via oil exports

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty

People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO).

It’s rarely about the environment anymore

  It’s about slashing our energy use, free enterprise, job creation, living standards and freedoms. 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 […]

Climate Change Insanity

  I went out for a walk today and enjoyed seeing how the autumn leaves are changing color because autumn, simply stated, is one of the four seasons that affects the Earth. It is part of the change that occurs as it has for billions of years. The notion that humans have anything to do […]
