Leaked documents published by WikiLeaks Tuesday show that show that the CIA — in a move reminiscent of the Keystone Kops — “lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal,” allowing it to fall into the hands of hackers who have even less moral constraint than the CIA (if that were possible). These cyber "weapons" should never have been developed in the first place; now they are loose in the wild.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday ordering the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review and reconsider the “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) regulation, a radical decree issued by the Obama administration purporting to regulate virtually all water and much of the land across America. While stopping short of quashing the controversial rule altogether, analysts described Trump's executive order as a first step in that process. One prominent activist, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, called the decision “the most pro-property rights move out of D.C. in two decades.” But there may be more to come; the latest order came amid reports that Trump is readying another executive order to dismantle Obama's “climate” regulations purporting to limit emissions of the “gas of life” carbon dioxide.
A group of radical environmentalists filed a suit against EPA head Scott Pruitt in a federal court, demanding that the EPA prevent “temperature pollution” in two rivers.
Matthew 7:18-19 says it all about the people who protested the Dakota Access Pipeline: "A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits."
Danish environmentalist/statistician Bjørn Lomborg says the UN Paris Climate Agreement would cost an astronomical $100 trillion — while only producing a 0.3 degree temperature reduction by 2100.
Rep. Lamar Smith is leading an effort to force the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to release cooked data President Obama and his media allies used to garner support for the immensely onerous and outrageously expensive UN Paris Agreement on climate change.
The Saudis announced in early 2016 that they would take their state-owned Saudi Aramco oil company public in 2017 or, at the latest, 2018. Now the offering is being delayed into 2019 or perhaps even further into the future.
OPEC’s report on how its members are complying with the production-cut agreement hammered out last fall came out on Monday. As expected, it reported widespread cheating among its members.
