Obama On Climate Change: "We Don't Have Time For A Meeting Of The Flat Earth Society"

“Nobody has a monopoly on what is a very hard problem, but I don’t have much patience for anyone who denies that this challenge is real,” President Obama said today during his climate change/global warming address. “We don’t have time for a meeting of the Flat Earth Society. Sticking your head in the sand might

With Carbon Emissions Already Dropping, Why Do We Need "Sweeping Action" On Climate Change?

“Obama to take sweeping action on climate,” reports the Washington Post. “President Obama will announce his intention to limit greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants, increase appliance efficiency standards and promote renewable energy development on public lands in a speech Tuesday outlining his plan to use executive powers to address climate change.” In other

Despite Increase In Global Carbon Emissions, Temperature Increases Have Been Almost Non-Existent

President Obama will be giving a major address about the environment, and in advance of that he’s arguing that rising temperatures mean it’s time for the government to act: Due to climate change, temperatures are rising, weather is getting more extreme—and it's time to act: http://t.co/TnyqnDSYNA #ActOnClimate — The White House (@whitehouse) June 25, 2013

In Defense Of Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant, according to a lot of people up to and including the EPA. The air that we exhale is bad for the environment, we’re supposed to believe, which has become such an article of faith that even the fossil fuel energy companies have embraced it arguing for fracking on the

Good News: There Might Not Be An Entourage Movie If We Keep Fracking

Cheaper energy. Lower carbon emissions. Declining rates of unwanted pregnancies. Now choking off publicity for stupid, navel-gazing Hollywood movies. Is there anything fracking can’t do? “Entourage” actor Adrian Grenier cohosted a celebrity–filled reception on April 19 at the ABC Carpet & Home Showroom in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. Susan Sarandon was in attendance and the event

Thanks Fracking: America Leading The World In Carbon Emission Reductions

From the Wall Street Journal (via Nevada Watchdog): U.S. carbon-dioxide emissions have fallen dramatically in recent years, in large part because the country is making more electricity with natural gas instead of coal. Energy-related emissions of carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas that is widely believed to contribute to global warming, have fallen 12% between 2005

Thanks To Fracking, European Manufacturers Relocating To America

When we talk about oil and gas development in the United States, we usually talk about the number of people the oil industry hires. Or maybe gas prices or “energy independence.” But what about the fact that America’s natural gas boom, which like our oil boom was brought about by the development of frackign and

Despite Increased Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Global Temperatures Flat Over Last 15 Years

Inconvenient truth for the global warming alarmists: Over the past 15 years air temperatures at the Earth’s surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar. The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO₂ put there

Burning Fossil Fuels Is Greening The Earth

Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves (P.S.), gives this fascinating lecture on Reason.tv about how fossil fuels is actually resulting in greening the planet. Which is pretty much the opposite of what we’re told by the environmentalists: “The fact that we’re putting more carbon dioxide into the air means there’s more
