A Kid in Fargo Thinks Climate Change Might Kill Him Before He’s 50, How Did We Get to This Point?

In Fargo this week, there was a climate change town hall organized by Fargo City Commissioner John Strand. It was well-attended, featuring dozens of speakers with different ideas for how Fargo, as a community, could address the issue. Remember, for many of these people, we are beyond the point of debating whether or not some

I Guess Maybe the Kids Really Are Dumb?

Jim Shaw’s columns often make me laugh, though I’m pretty sure it’s not for reasons he intends. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been excoriated by critics, in various mediums, for suggesting that maybe teenagers like Greta Thunberg and the kids who participated in the protests she inspired are not the best people to

Print Column: Who Cares What Children Think About Complex Policy Questions?

MINOT, N.D. — Hey, kids. Recently a bunch of you chose to participate in a national walkout campaign inspired by Greta Thunberg, a dead-eyed Swede who arrived on our shores in a rowboat or something to show how dedicated she is to her apocalyptic faith. It wouldn’t do to have this green-tinged, modern-day Savonarola land

Print Column: The Left’s Climate Change Eschatology Obstructs Real Progress Like the Davis Refinery

Heidi Heitkamp’s Political Party Wants to Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics

The Grand Forks Herald had an interesting editorial recently talking about how North Dakota Democrats can put themselves back on the political map in North Dakota. Because, let’s face it, they’re not really on it right now. I’d recommend reading the whole editorial, but in a nutshell the paper argues that the Democrats have simply moved

James Kerian: The Man-Made Global Warming Hoax Is Over

A lot of people thought that the scandal at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in 2009 would end the political/academic fundraising schemes that center around the theory that anthropogenic global warming will cause imminent disaster.  It didn’t turn out that way.  AGW was such a perfect narrative for motivating left-wing activists/donors that no

Matt Evans: If The EPA Cares About Me So Much, It Can Send A Card

I am responding to Mr. Olsrud’s article from Wednesday, titled “when did the EPA become the bad guys”. Go read the piece, if you haven’t.  I’ll wait. I was really disappointed when I read this.  Given the stature and experience of the author, I was hoping for something better and more convincing. The first difficulty
