    Obama’s Attempt to Revive Cap and Trade

    New Year, Same Story: Global Warming Dead Last on America's Priority List

    The wheels have been falling off the global warming bandwagon well before Climategate and the recent hole-poking of the much trumpeted Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report.
