Stop the anti-climate science totalitarians
They want to upend and transform America, but demand No Debate on underlying “science” Paul Driessen Democrats, climate campaigners and renewable energy interests are in full outrage mode over news that President Trump intends to launch a Presidential Committee on Climate Science.

Green land grabs on steroids

So climate alarmists intend to carbon-tax, legislate and […]
