Climate Change Deliberation: Taking Occam’s Razor to Proxy Data

Written by Robert T. Smith

It is quite often the case that the simplest explanation is the correct explanation. The namesake for this principle comes from the English philosopher and theologian, Franciscan friar William of Ockham. It is called Occam’s razor. From various sources, Occam’s razor is a principle of parsimony or frugality used in logic and problem-solving. It states that among competing hypotheses, the hypothesis with the fewest assumptions should be selected. Perhaps Occam’s razor can be appropriately applied to many of our current issues.… Continue Reading

What Would a Democrat-Controlled Presidency and Congress Mean for America

Written by Laurie Higgins

Republicans who care about liberty, equality, justice, safety, and economic prosperity must vote for President Donald J. Trump and Republican U.S. Senators. A Democrat-controlled presidency and U.S. Senate would further empower the arrogant, ignorant, divisive, tyrannical cancel culture that has taken root in every major cultural institution in America. Academia, the mainstream press, Big Tech, corporate America, Hollywood, and professional medical and mental health organizations collude to censor the dissemination of ideas leftists don’t like and oppress those who disseminate them.… Continue Reading

Gallup Poll: Climate Change Barely Registers Among Americans’ List of Top Concerns

Written by H. Sterling Burnett

Just 1 percent of Americans surveyed identified the combined category of “Climate change/Environment/Pollution” as “the most important problem facing this country today,” in a recently released Gallup poll.

Coronavirus the Top Concern

The Wuhan Coronavirus remained the top concern among the 1007 adults polled by Gallup between July 1 and July 23, with 30 percent of those surveyed identifying it as “the most important problem facing the country today.” “Government/Poor Leadership,” came in a distant second among the list of concerns, with 23 percent of respondents saying it is the top problem facing the nation.… Continue Reading

Bernie Scolds Elon Musk for Taking Subsidies Sanders Made Possible

Written by Steve Goreham

In a Twitter battle last week, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) criticized Elon Musk for accepting billions of dollars in government support. The exchange erupted over Sanders’ new bill to impose a wealth tax on Musk and other billionaires. But most of the payments received by Musk’s companies came from electric vehicle and solar energy programs that Sanders, green advocates and state governments established to promote green energy.

The coronavirus pandemic caused the stock market to plunge in February and March of this year.… Continue Reading

Bad News for Dems: The Nail in the Coffin of the Newest Environmental Scare Hoax

Written by Laurie Higgins

This week is ending with some very good news for the Trump campaign and for every true-red Republican running for office. An explosive book was just released on June 30 by a “climate scare” leader in which he confesses to and apologizes for the deception environmentalists have perpetrated against the entire civilized world.

In the book Apocalypse Never by bona fide far-left environmentalist Michael Shellenberger, he exposes and apologizes for the mountain of climate activist lies that a handful of scientists have been trying to expose for years.… Continue Reading

The Ninety-Seven Percent Consensus Myth

Written by John O’Sullivan

Public opinion on global warming/climate change has been relatively stable for some time across the globe.

Naturally, there are variations between nations, age-groups, and time-periods, but most surveys show a rough division of opinion between two-thirds of respondents who believe that global warming is largely caused by human activity and a serious threat to the world, and those who are skeptical on both points.

Of some moderate interest is that older people and those on the Right (Republicans, Conservatives, Tories) are somewhat more skeptical than younger people and those on the Left (Democrats, Labourites, etc.)… Continue Reading

Biden’s Embrace of the Green New Deal Signals More Danger for the Economy

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

Late in April Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for the 2020 presidential elections, acknowledged that he is ready to embrace the Green New Deal aimed at making sweeping changes to America’s energy spectrum.

This signals more danger to the American economy, which is already reeling under the pressure of the coronavirus lockdowns.

There is hope the economy will recover from this coronavirus slump, but not if the nation implements the Green New Deal.… Continue Reading

Climate-Change Opportunists Latch Onto Coronavirus

Written by Dr. E. Calvin Beisner

While she didn’t get it into the $2.2 trillion bill to stimulate the economy and help businesses survive the nearly nationwide shutdown during the Coronavirus pandemic, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) tried to insert tax credits for solar and wind and CO2 emissions standards for airlines as part of her effort to get America to fight global warming.

And as Tilak Doshi reports in Forbes, she wasn’t the only climate-change opportunist:

Across the pond, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen doubled down on the EU’s climate commitment with a €1 trillion Green Deal.

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
