    Climategate II: New Leaked Emails Cast Doubt on Climate Change

    Another round of leaked e-mails from the University of East Anglia’s (UEA) Climatic Research Unit have surfaced, once again illustrating why governments should not be making serious policy decisions based on mainstream climate science. Several of the following excerpts not only call into question conventional “climate change” wisdom but also … More

    The Left's War on Science Continues

    There is no limit to the amount of distortion the enviro-left is willing to deploy to accomplish their policy goals. Last month, the Obama Commerce Department issued a report finding that the “scientists at the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration did not manipulate data or otherwise engage in wrongdoing.” But … More

    Climategate before Climategate

    The Heartland Institute’s International Climate Change Conference commenced in Chicago last night, bringing together some of the world’s leading climatologists who offer dissenting views from the mainstream “global warming is a serious, human-induced problem” view. This year 73 scientists, economists, and policy analysts from 23 countries will present to over … More

    Climategate Investigation Only Fuels Controversy

    If the University of East Anglia report set up to investigate the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) was meant to put the Climategate controversy to rest in time for Earth Day, it failed spectacularly. The panel was led by Ernest Oxburg, who happens to be the honorary … More

    UN Reaching for Any Excuse to Tackle Climate Change

    United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is never afraid to make headlines when it comes to his stance on climate change. In 2007 he likened the war on climate change to actual war saying, “”The majority of the United Nations work still focuses on preventing and ending conflict. But the danger … More

    High Sticking: The Flaws of the IPCC and the Hockey Stick Model

    Rajendra Pachauri , chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), responded to the errors exposed in the IPCC report saying that “Scientists are demonised because of one error in 3000 pages of evidence.” Truth be told, there were several errors uncovered in the report including questionable sources in … More

    Greens Frustrated by America’s Lack of Panic

    Why has American’s concern with global warming dropped to dead last among issues surveyed (even dead last among environmental issues)? Because a great deal of their concern was based on projections that have been dramatically toned down or exposed as outright fraud. The hysteria is unsupportable and people have caught … More

    Congress should do the right thing—nothing

    The same ethical advice for doctors also makes sense for Congress as it considers several pending global warming bills – first do no harm. Given serious questions about global warming science as well as the efficacy of costly proposals to address it, the best choice for Washington is none of … More

    What Transparency Looks Like to the Obama White House

    Things that are transparent: Saran Wrap, glass, water. Things that aren’t transparent: brick walls, mountains, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). Or so it would seem, if you take a look at the CEQ’s response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request issued by the U.S. Chamber … More

    Climate Science Exposed: New Report on the CRU Controversy

    “The science behind climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming. That conclusion is not a partisan one.” – Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson. Forget being partisan or not. That conclusion of settled science isn’t existent. It hasn’t been for a long time, but they … More
