  • Breaking EPA’s climate science secrecy barriers (July 23, 2014)
    The Environmental Protection Agency, US Global Change Research Program and other government agencies are using billions of our tax dollars to fund biased climate research, select research that supports their regulatory agenda, ignore studies that do not, handpick the “independent” experts who peer-review the research, hide their actions from public view – and issue regulations that will cost countless billions of dollars and affect the lives, livelihoods, liberties, living standards, health, welfare and life spans of every American. These actions violate federal laws and independent watchdog groups are using FOIA requests to secure disclosure of EPA records that could reveal this rigged climate science peer review process – and bring legal actions under the Information Quality Act to correct the resultant data corruption. These efforts could ultimately end corrupt government practices and force a large-scale dismantling of EPA’s junk science and the job-killing regulations it spawns.
  • Killing marine life with ethanol - Ethanol damages your cars, small engines, food budget – and kills Gulf of Mexico animals (July 22, 2014)
    By now most Americans are familiar with the many reasons ethanol in gasoline is a bad idea:  higher cost, lower mileage, engine damage, energy and water use.  They also know its climate change hype doesn’t come close to reality – and that ethanol also creates significant other problems.  Yet there is another environmental problem with ethanol:  Much of the nitrogen fertilizer needed to grow all that corn gets washed into streams and rivers that drain into the Gulf of Mexico, where they cause enormous summertime algae blooms across thousands of square miles.  When the algae die, their decomposition consumes oxygen in the water – creating enormous low-oxygen (hypoxic) and zero-oxygen (anoxic) regions.  Marine life cannot survive in those “dead zones.”  Fish swim away, but shrimp, oysters, clams, mussels, crabs, sea cucumbers and other stationary or slow moving bottom dwellers cannot escape.  They just suffocate.  Big Ethanol doesn’t want to talk about this.  But we need to discuss it – and end the ethanol mandates.
  • Greenpeace showcases its anti-human side (July 21, 2014)
    When I agreed to let Greenpeace activist Connor Gibson interview me I’d just given a presentation at the Heartland Institute’s hugely successful Ninth International Conference on Climate Change. My presentation addressed Big Green’s lethal agenda, describing how “dangerous manmade climate change” is just one of many mantras invoked by the Deep Ecology movement to advance an agenda that is anti-energy, anti-people, and opposed to modern economies, technologies and civilizations. Gibson informed me he'd read my book (Eco-Imperialism: Green power - Black death) and attended some of the talks by globally renowned experts on climate, weather, species extinction, human health and other topics. If so, he obviously hadn’t listened, or had simply chosen to ignore every fact and explanation presented, as not in accord with his preconceived ideologies. That would certainly include the keynote address by Greenpeace cofounder Patrick Moore, explaining how he left the organization over its increasingly bizarre, irrational and inhumane attitudes and actions.
