Deceptive rhetoric at Davos could bring disaster

By Paul Driessen Feb. 9, 2020 There is nothing ‘cohesive’ or ‘sustainable’ about ‘solutions’ demanded by WEF ‘stakeholders’   The World Economic Forum conference in Davos, Switzerland is billed as the globe’s most prestigious annual gathering of movers and shakers. Its mission is to “improve the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.” This year’s theme was “Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World.” Unfortunately, the lofty rhetoric belies the misleading, potentially disastrous realities of agendas supported by many participants. A primary basis for this year’s …

The Green Oscars: A high-fashion nightmare!

By Duggan Flanakin Feb. 8, 2020 Living high-flying lives of hypocrisy, while telling the rest of us how we should live The Green Oscars are coming! The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awards show – the Academy Awards – has become a platform for virtue signaling on “climate change.”  Big Hollywood stars often fly in on private jets, arrive in gas-guzzling limos and, when they win, use their platform to lecture us on how we must behave. It’s funny how Hollywood also ignores a decade-old University of California study that found filmmaking in the Los Angeles area was …

Fight fires with facts – not fake science

Fight fires with facts – not fake science

By Paul Driessen & Duggan Flanakin Jan. 19, 2020 Eliminate fuel, prevent ignition, stop arson, end irresponsible land management policies “We are all born ignorant,” Benjamin Franklin once said, “but one must work very hard to remain stupid.” Greens are incensed over suggestions that anything but fossil fuels and climate change might be turning green California and Australian ecosystems into black wastelands, incinerating wildlife, destroying homes and killing people. The notion that they and their policies might be a major factor in these fires gets them so hot under the collar that they could ignite another inferno. But the facts …

Is it climate socialism – or eco-fascism?

By Paul Driessen | October 27, 2019 Green New Deal climate alarm socialism is really intolerant, totalitarian eco-fascism Green New Dealers have convinced themselves that our planet faces an imminent, existential, manmade climate cataclysm – that can be prevented solely and simply by government edicts replacing fossil fuels with biofuel, wind, solar and battery energy. They achieve this state of absolute certainty largely by propagating constant scare stories, while ignoring and suppressing contradictory evidence and viewpoints. They deliberately and deceptively talk about “carbon pollution.” Carbon is soot – what our cars, factories and power plants now emit in very small …

A Red Team review of climate crisis assertions

By Paul Driessen June 19, 2019 Gavin Schmidt’s spat with Steve Koonin underscores why we need to debate climate change Various scientists, politicians and activists have long insisted that the United States and world must end fossil fuel use to prevent dangerous manmade global warming, climate change and extreme weather disasters. They say “the science is settled” and the time to act is now. Many other experts have pointed out that these dire threats are the product of hypotheses and computer models that are largely contradicted by actual observations and historic records for temperatures, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, Arctic and …

Shutting down middle and blue-collar America

By Paul Driessen June 13, 2019 From Biden to Warren, Democrat president wannabes push job-killing pseudo-green policies Vocal activists increasingly drive Democrat Party positions across the public policy spectrum. Print, television, social and click-bait media generally support them, while permitting little debate on liberal proposals or their potential ramifications. Even semi-moderate Joe Biden has been pressured into shifting or flipping his positions on abortion, energy, climate change and other issues, to satisfy far-left factions.

Ending Obama EPA climate deception

By Paul Driessen May 19, 2019 Let’s finally review Endangerment Finding used to justify trillions in climate and energy costs   In December 2009, the Obama Environmental Protection Agency issued its Endangerment Finding (EF) – decreeing that carbon dioxide (CO2) and other “greenhouse gases” (GHGs) endanger the health and welfare of Americans. In the process, EPA ignored the incredible economic, health and welfare benefits of fossil fuels – and the fact that (even at just 0.04% of the atmosphere) carbon dioxide is the miracle molecule that enables plants to grow and makes nearly all live on Earth possible. EPA turned …

Fear, loathing, intolerance – and worse

By Paul Driessen May 15, 2019 The climate-fearing, capitalism-loathing Left cannot abide questions or differing opinions   Throughout history despots had effective ways of reducing dissension in the ranks. Inquisitors burned heretics. Nazi’s burned books – before taking far more extreme measures. Soviets employed famines, gulags, salt mines and executions. ChiComs and other tyrants starved, jailed and murdered millions. Today’s Green New Dealers and their allies have mapped out their own totalitarian strategies. They proclaim themselves socialists, but their economic policies and tolerance for other viewpoints reflect a different form of government – fascism: A political system in which authoritarian …

Stop the anti-climate science totalitarians

By Paul Driessen March 8, 2019 They want to upend and transform America, but demand No Debate on underlying “science”   Democrats, climate campaigners and renewable energy interests are in full outrage mode over news that President Trump intends to launch a Presidential Committee on Climate Science. He should do it now.

AOC says America should lead the world

By Paul Driessen February 18, 2019 In committing national economic suicide and sending living standards back to 19th century 29-year old ex-bartender and freshman U.S. Representative (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received thunderous environmentalist and media acclaim when she introduced her Green New Deal resolution in the House and Ed Markey (D-MA) submitted it in the Senate. It was quickly endorsed or cosponsored by scores of House and Senate Dems, including many who want to run against President Trump in 2020. But within days the GND was subjected to rigorous analysis (and ridicule) by energy experts, President Trump, Republicans, conservative pundits and …
