Coal-fired power plants are likely to be the first targets of President Obama's promised executive orders to enact climate-change regulations.
In his first major foreign policy speech on Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry called for collective action to tackle climate change.
A controversial peer-reviewed paper set to be published next month, authored by a dozen prominent scientists and other experts, is coming under heavy criticism, primarily for calling on policymakers to adopt draconian measures to change social norms and values through coercion — essentially mass social engineering under the guise of environmentalism, whether the public wants it or not. The dubious plan outlined by the academics, however, is already being blasted by analysts as a scheme to erect an “eco-dictatorship under United Nations rule.”
The Environmental Protection Agency and its disgraced former boss Lisa Jackson are under fire from lawmakers and activists for, among other reasons, having recently been exposed violating federal law by using bogus identities and e-mail accounts to coordinate propaganda with media allies and policymakers to advance the Obama administration’s radical “environmental” agenda. The EPA is also still under fire in the headlines for ripping off U.S. taxpayers and foisting more unconstitutional regulations on the economy by working with extremist pseudo-environmental groups using a controversial scheme dubbed “sue and settle.”
Information leaked from a report compiled by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that heat from the sun may play a larger role in increasing the Earth’s temperatures than previously thought.
Corporate giant Monsanto, known for its controversial business model, lobbying, and its widely criticized genetically modified organisms (GMOs), has officially joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, a group of powerful interests including major banks and Big Oil backing the United Nations “Agenda 21” scheme for so-called “sustainable development.” Critics, however, expressed alarm over the announcement, saying the global “sustainability” push is really a transparent plot to centralize power in the UN and enrich special interests at the expense of private property rights, national sovereignty, and individual liberty.
A leaked report by the United Nations presents evidence that fear-mongering over global warming may be a little too ambitious.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught fudging the climate data again, and its MSM choir, as usual, uncritically reports the doctored data and scary scenarios as facts.
The release of a conveniently long-lost report showing that fracking is safe puts New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo in a tight spot: continue to appease environmentalists by delaying further the development of the rich Marcellus Formation under his state, or letting the free market extract those resources and generate thousands of jobs and millions in revenue to the state.
While brutal blizzards and freezing temperatures blanket much of the world, the major media keep up a steady drumbeat of alarmism concerning the nonexistent "crisis" of global warming.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson has announced her resignation after four years at the EPA. Her tenure was marked by controversial policies involving a number of high-profile issues including global warming, the Keystone XL pipeline, and emissions controls on coal-fired plants. And recent scrutiny over Jackson’s use of an alias e-mail account has led some to believe that her resignation was inevitable.
