Wildfires occur naturally and have always been a part of the seasonal cycle in the West, but the size and intensity of the fires have dramatically increased in recent years due, in large measure, to the gross mismanagement of the national forests by the U.S. Forest Service and the incessant lawsuits of radical environmentalists that have thwarted all reasonable attempts at proper forest management.
So-called global-warming alarmists are in a frenzy after the latest climate data confirmed the Earth actually appears to be entering a potential cooling trend, sea-ice cover in Antarctica is growing to record levels, tornadoes and hurricanes are at record lows, and more. According to experts, the most recent revelations continue to make a mockery of alarmist claims — debunking United Nations theories about human-caused global warming and the wildly inaccurate supposed “climate models” used to forecast doom and gloom by forces seeking carbon taxes and more centralized government.

Sixty trillion dollars? Global warming fright peddlers continue claiming the Arctic ice cap is melting so rapidly we are headed toward an eco-apocalypse. And now they’ve attached a very scary price tag to it.
Former plug-in advocate and General Motors engineer Ozzie Zehner once built his own hybrid car that could run on electricity or natural gas. And he was convinced, he writes, that cars such as his “would help reduce both pollution and fossil-fuel dependence.” But he now says, “I was wrong.”

President Obama was playing to his most extreme “green” constituency in his climate and energy speech at Georgetown University today, blasting global warming skeptics as “flat-earth society” ostriches with their heads in the sand.

President Obama’s new global warming video, made to promote his June 25 climate address at Georgetown University, comes as The Economist, the Washington Post and other warming alarmists admit that the “scientific consensus” was wrong.
