Environmentalism, Pantheism, Statism and Pessimism

Written by David Limbaugh

Meaning no disrespect to climate alarmists of the past half-century, who have been quite formidable in their doomsday warnings, the modern era has ushered in a new wave of scaremongers who threaten to eclipse their predecessors.

This shouldn’t discourage the original enviro-wackos of the 1970s, who hadn’t accumulated sufficient empirical data to support their burgeoning secular religion. Give those people a break; how were they to know they’d have egg on their faces for predicting apocalyptic global cooling?… Continue Reading

Let the Democrats Keep Showing Their Hand

Written by David Limbaugh

The Democratic Party’s emerging radical bloc is alarming, but the leftist group’s youthful intemperance could backfire and re-energize Republicans’ 2020 electoral prospects.

Even before all the hanging chads and miraculously divined ballots have been examined in Florida, newly elected leftist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already engaging in activism in the halls of Congress. On Tuesday morning, the future representative from New York joined a protest organized by the Sunrise Movement outside the offices of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi to demand immediate action on climate change — as if the dinosaur wing of the Democratic Party weren’t sufficiently extremist on environmental issues.… Continue Reading

YouTube Is Fighting against Scientific Inquiry and the Expansion of Human Knowledge

Written by William Balgord And E. Calvin Beisner 

Curiously, the mainstream media seem to have ignored the story, but it’s an important one. Buzzfeed reported August 7 that “YouTube Is Fighting Back Against Climate Misinformation.”

As of July 9, “YouTube is now adding fact checks to videos that question climate change … as a part of its ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspiratorial fodder on its platform.”

But neither YouTube nor Wikipedia, the source of its “fact check,” is qualified to function as unassailable arbiter calling balls and strikes over what is or isn’t fact in any given field of human inquiry.… Continue Reading

The Astonishing Failures Of Al Gore’s Arctic Prophecies

Written by Vijay Jayaraj

In his 2007 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, Al Gore claimed that there is “a 75 percent chance the entire polar ice cap will melt in summer within the next five to seven years.”

Well, eleven years have gone by, and Arctic ice is doing fine.

Why do politicians like Gore make blatantly false claims?

The Arctic ice sheet has been the heart of climate-change debate. So much so, both climate-change alarmists and climate-change skeptics have often erred by relying exclusively on the Arctic for their assessment of climate change.… Continue Reading

I Am A Climate Denier

Written by William Briggs

The latest meeting of the UN to discuss the redistribution of your money because of “climate change” has just concluded.

Here’s one headline generated by the event: “Pope Francis says those who deny climate change have ‘perverse attitudes’“.

The pontiff, during remarks made to negotiators at climate talks in Germany, called climate change “one of the most worrisome phenomena that humanity is facing.” He added efforts to combat climate change are held back by those who deny the science behind it, are indifferent or resigned to it, or think it can be solved by technical solutions.

Au Revoir, Paris Agreement: Biblical Perspectives on Climate Change

Written by Gidon Ben-Zvi

On June 1, President Donald Trump announced the United States is pulling out of the Paris climate accord. While environmental scientists say the consequences could be catastrophic for the planet, many religious Americans are taking the news in stride. Indeed, the deafening silence of many people following Trump’s decision bespeaks skepticism of man-made global warming as well as the government’s ability to address the issue.

The heated rhetoric, both in favor of and in opposition to such international treaties as the Paris Agreement, is but a byproduct of the politicization of the environmental movement.… Continue Reading

“I Used to Blame Obama For My Problems, Now I Blame Climate Change”(Spotlight #039)

Written by Benjamin Smith

Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, the founder and national spokesman of the Cornwall Alliance, discusses the misinformation being spread by climate change alarmists in this week’s podcast.  Even Pope Francis has weighed in, imploring world leaders to implement global environmental pacts to combat human-caused global warming.  Dr. Beisner explains why these misguided efforts to supposedly safeguard the future of the planet actually hurt the poor and the needy of the world.… Continue Reading

10,000 Years Ago? That Was Climate Change. Today? Not So Much

Written by Patrick Moore

It was a breath of fresh air to read Jeff Jacoby’s column on Environmental Protection Agency director Scott Pruitt’s remarks about carbon dioxide, a tiny component of our atmosphere without which life on earth could not exist (“Climate science far from settled,” Opinion, March 15).

As a lifelong ecologist and environmentalist, I have seen much of the environmental movement hijacked for the purpose of alarming us about the future of the climate.… Continue Reading

So Al Gore Was Wrong About Global Warming?

Written by Joseph Curl

Former Vice President turned Savior of the Planet Al Gore once declared that “the science is settled.

Well, maybe not. Here’s what we know — and don’t know.

The temperature on Planet Earth went up, then it stopped going up. Or at least we thought we knew that, until the journal “Science” ran a blockbuster report based on a scientific paper titled: “Possible Artifacts Of Data Biases In The Recent Global Surface Warming Hiatus.”

That study appeared just six months before world leaders signed the Paris agreement on climate change, and it made one dramatic assertion: There never was a “pause” in the temperature rise.

Written by E. Calvin Beisner

When President-elect Donald J. Trump nominated Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt for Environmental Protection Agency Administrator December 8, environmentalists went ballistic.

They called it “a win for polluters and a loss for the American public,” said “Every American should be appalled,” likened it to “the fox guarding the henhouse,” and called Pruitt a “puppet of the fossil fuel industry.”

E&E News reported, “Environmentalists are preparing for war” and quoted Center for Biological Diversity attorney Bill Snape: “We suspected it would be bad, and it’s bad.… Continue Reading
