Tax oil to subsidize wind?

Obama wants to punish oil industry to advance climate agenda. So do Hillary, Bernie and Mike Paul Driessen If you want more of something, mandate it, subsidize it and exempt it from regulations.

Obama’s 0.7 percent “solution”

Obama, Democrats and bureaucrats bury America’s future under more federal regulations Paul Driessen America’s abysmal 0.7% economic growth during the fourth quarter of 2015 meant the annual growth rate was an anemic 2.4% … and average annual growth for the six-year Obama era a pathetic 2.2 percent.

More outrages and insanities in Paris

If alarmists get what they want at the climate gabfest, the consequences will be disastrous Paul Driessen The Senate will not approve or appropriate money for anything President Obama might agree to in Paris, and developing countries will not (and should not) stop building coal-fired power plants and using fossil fuels to lift billions out of [...]

You can guess what would happen if you used the same tactics that climate alarmists employ Paul Driessen Suppose you’ve been using some creative data, accounting and legal interpretations for years to reduce your tax bill – and the IRS suddenly flags you for a full-blown audit.

Green Tech – the climate crisis syndicate

Manufactured climate crisis fears and renewable energy schemes create gold mine for the rich Paul Driessen Renewable Portfolio Standard advocates recently held their 2015 National Summit.

Government-style “fairness” for the 1%

Obama cronies get abundant favors – at the expense of working class Americans Paul Driessen Liberals love to extol their deep compassion for the poor, whom conservatives allegedly don’t give a fig about. Thus our Community-Organizer-in-Chief pontificates endlessly about income inequality, to justify his determination to “fundamentally transform” our nation, so that “everyone gets a fair shot, and everyone [...]

Leading on Paris climate treaty?

We should lead from behind – instead of with brains in our behinds – on this new Treaty of Paris Paul Driessen What an unpalatable irony.

A conversation … or a lecture?

Pope Francis and all of us could learn a lot from an actual conversation on energy and climate Paul Driessen We must “enter into dialogue with all people about our common home,” Pope Francis recently told the US Congress, frequently quoting from his Laudato Si encyclical. “We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenge … [...]

Climate alarmists want us prosecuted under RICO

Losing the climate science battle, climate alarmists want government to silence skeptics Paul Driessen They haven’t employed the thumb screws, rack or auto-da-fe that churches and states once used to interrogate, silence and eliminate heretics and witches. However, global warming alarmists are well practiced in the modern equivalents, to protect their $1.5-trillion Climate Crisis Industry. [...]
