    ClimateGate Update

    See ya later climate data: “SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

    Gearing Up for the Copenhagen Climate Conference

    Cap and trade is nowhere near dead but it’s not the only weapon in the arsenal against capping carbon dioxide emissions.

    Trillions in New Taxes to Accomplish Nothing

    Discovery News reports: For those who have endured this winter’s frigid temperatures and today’s heavy snowstorm in the Northeast, the concept of global warming may seem, well, almost wishful.

    You Can't Contain the Clean Air Act

    This Sunday climate czar Carol Browner said the Obama Administration will soon “make an endangerment finding” on carbon dioxide and said, “the next step is a notice of proposed rule making” for new regulations on carbon-dioxide emissions. According to the Wall Street Journal, Browner claims that the Obama Administration “would … More

    Global Warming "Shell Games"

    Congressman John Shimkus (R-IL) is a member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. He took time this week to answer questions from U.S. Fulbright Fellow Patrick Bell. 1. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), the new Chair of the Energy & Commerce Committee, has said he would like to have global … More

    Poor Information Quality at EPA

    President-elect Barack Obama will probably just use the Environmental Protection Agency’s rulemaking power “as a political bludgeon” to force Congress to pass a massive energy tax, but it is still helpful to push back against the EPA’s carbon capping plans. Yesterday The Heartland Institute posted their official comment on the … More
