Nearly doomed by too little CO2

During the last ice age, too little atmospheric carbon dioxide almost eradicated mankind Dennis T. Avery Aside from protests by Al Gore, Leonardo Di Caprio and friends, the public didn’t seem to raise its CO2 anguish much above the Russians-election frenzy when Trump exited the Paris Climate Accords.

Exiting the Mad Hatter’s climate tea party

Trump was 100% right (not just 97%) to show real leadership and walk away from Paris Paul Driessen I can guess why a raven is like a writing-desk, Alice said. “Do you mean you think you can find out the answer?” said the March Hare. “Exactly so,” said Alice. “Then you should say what you mean,” the [...]

Green Energy Poverty Week

A week dedicated to topics that underscore impacts environmentalists don’t want to discuss Paul Driessen April 22 was Earth Day, the March for Science and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate March and the usual [...]

Real science must guide policy

Climate alarmists use faulty science and bald assertions to demand end to fossil fuels Paul Driessen All too many alarmist climate scientists have received millions in taxpayer grants over the years, relied on computer models that do not reflect real-world observations, attacked and refused to debate scientists who disagree with manmade climate cataclysm claims, refused to [...]

It’s like formulating public safety policies using models based on dinosaur DNA from amber

Things are never quiet on the climate front. Paul Driessen After calling dangerous manmade climate change a hoax and vowing to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement, President Trump has apparently removed language criticizing the Paris deal from a pending executive order initiating a rollback of anti-fossil-fuel regulations, to help jumpstart job creation.

Reality-based climate forecasting

Environmentalist insurance policies

Intellectual ammo for holiday party responses to claims that you need meteorite insurance Paul Driessen Many liberals went into denial, outrage and riot mode after November 8.

Sea level rise – or land subsidence?

Alarmist claims about rising seas inundating coastal areas blame the wrong culprit Paul Driessen and Roger Bezdek In his 2006 Inconvenient Truth mockumentary, Al Gore infamously predicted melting ice caps would cause oceans to rise “up to 20 feet” (6.1 meters) “in the near future.” Kevin Costner’s 1995 “action thriller” Water World presumed totally melting planetary ice would almost submerge [...]

Powering countries, empowering people

Affordable energy brings jobs, improved living standards and pursuit of happiness Paul Driessen For 16 years, in a scene out of pre-industrial America, Thabo Molubi and his partner made furniture in South Africa’s outback, known locally as the “veld.” Lacking even a stream to turn a water wheel and machinery, they depended solely on hand and [...]
