We Must Fight Climate Extremists Before They Upend Society

Written by Dr. Ross McKitrick

Last year was the year the climate issue took a sharp turn towards extremism. Let’s hope 2020 is the year sanity makes a comeback.

There have long been three groups occupying the climate issue. To avoid pejoratives, I will call them A, B and C.

The A group are the doubters. They don’t believe greenhouse gases (GHGs) do much harm and they don’t support expensive climate-policy interventions. If we must choose between climate policy and the continued use of inexpensive fossil energy, they readily choose the latter.… Continue Reading

Should Politicians in the Wealthy West Promote Abortion in Poor Countries to Curtail Climate Change?

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

Some issues transcend partisan politics. This is one of them.

In a special debate on climate change hosted by CNN in September, United States presidential candidate U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) suggested using taxpayer money to fund abortion in poor countries. He believes doing so would help fight climate change.

In the debate, an audience member said, “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth….… Continue Reading

Stop Scaring the Children

Written by Stephen Moore

A friend of mine’s third grade daughter came home from school a few weeks ago with tears streaming down her cheeks. “My teacher says we only have 10 years before the oceans rise and we are underwater,” she moaned. “Are we all going to die?”

That’s a heavy burden to place on the shoulders of a 9-year-old.

Gloomy stories of the coming apocalypse have become commonplace in schools, textbooks, churches, movies and even children’s bedtime stories. … Continue Reading

The Idolatry of Environmental Extremism

Written by David Limbaugh

A bizarre incident at Union Theological Seminary illustrates why many Christians believe that internal forces, not external ones, represent the greatest threat to the church.

Students at this seminary prayed to a collection of plants in its chapel, which triggered a raft of criticism on Twitter. The school defiantly defended its action in a series of tweets.

“Today in chapel, we confessed to plants,” the school tweeted. “Together, we held our grief, joy, regret, hope, guilt and sorrow in prayer; offering them to the beings who sustain us but whose gift we too often fail to honor.… Continue Reading

Climate Change and the Democrats

Written by R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.

Climate change is one of those issues that the bien-pensants around the world all agree upon. We must act! If we do not act, people will lose their beach houses. Plants will wither and die. Birds will fall from the sky. Just last week, whole communities in the Caribbean were swept away.

There are, however, problems with eliminating or ameliorating climate change. For one thing, modern technology cannot seem to keep up with people’s ability to dream.… Continue Reading

Stone-Age Democrats Are Crazy With the Heat

Written by David Limbaugh

If you’re a political conservative, don’t feel so picked on by the Stalinist Democratic Party. It doesn’t allow dissent among its own ranks either, being the party of the ideological straitjacket.

In watching some of the clips from the Democratic climate change marathon, I was struck by how willing each candidate was to grovel and play dumb to retain favor with the crazy leftist base. And that should tell us all we need to know about how dangerous this party is for America.… Continue Reading

The Real Motives Behind Green New America and its Radical Undertone

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

Do you hold a moderate or neutral opinion on climate? Then get ready to be sidelined or blacklisted as a “denier” or “dangerous person” by the growing number of radicals who believe there should be no room for dissent.

Welcome to the Green New America.

In earlier days, the color Green was largely associated with nature and the abundance of life. In the 20th century, Green became the symbol of the fight against all things that destroys the environment.… Continue Reading

Climate Change Hysteria Grips the Democratic Party

Written by Timothy J. Dailey

On Tuesday, July 9, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont joined U.S. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Earl Blumenauer of Oregon in introducing a resolution declaring that climate change is a national emergency, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the notion of global warming is coming under increased scrutiny.

While the vast majority of the scientific community continues to march in lockstep to the mantra of climate change, dissent is growing.… Continue Reading

Greenland Episode Exposes Repeated Exaggeration of Weather Events

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

In the past two months, the news media was filled with pictures and articles about the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. Unfortunately, to their dismay, the sensationalists’ dream of a Greenland melt was halted when the ice levels jumped back up to record highs.

This is just one of the countless incidences in which climate doomsayers have hijacked weather phenomena and used them to push their climate doomsday theories.

Greenland is a massive island covered mostly in ice.… Continue Reading

Endless Failure Of Climate Doomsday Tales

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

On June 29, 2017, the Dailymail in UK ran an article headlined “Four years to save the Earth: 2020 is the deadline to avert climate catastrophe, experts claim in chilling commentary.”

Two years later and halfway to deadline, the earth has not changed much. If anything, the El Niño of the 2016-17 season gave way for much cooler temperatures across the globe and the past two years have been colder than 2016.… Continue Reading
