Exposed: Harvard Study Omitted Evidence to Allege ExxonMobil ‘Misled’ Public on Climate

Thought Piece It is very hard to read the political rhetoric of Michael Mann, Naomi Oreskes, Bill McKibbens, PBS, CNN, Post, Times (east and west), Tribune, and many other media assets every day: Where, the above-voices have failed to advance democracy in today’s world, by ignoring any of the loyal opposition’s counter-arguments against climate certainty. My [...]

The EPA and The Clean Power Plan: The Climate Science is Far from Settled

Thought Piece With all the hand-wringing and teeth-knashing being done since the two international Lancet Reports and EPA’ s recent environmental report, I thought that I would reprint this piece from 2016: “EPA and the Clean Power Plan,” where I delineate over 20 flaws in the Clean Power Plan.

129TH ANNUAL MEETING AND EDUCATION CONFERENCE

ATTENDING In the end, I think that we will evolve into asking all members of any EPA Panel to make full disclosures, including potential conflicts of interest to replace the lop-sided appointments by the previous EPA for its Clean Air Committees: The Scientific Advisory Committee Particulate Matter Review Panel where 24 of the 26 members received [...]

Sierra Club Asks Fed Court to Stop Atlantic Sunrise Construction

Thought Piece “We will continue to work to protect communities from the threat of fracked gas pollution,” said Sierra Club attorney Nathan Matthews. It is hard to retain a modicum of respect for any environmental group who likes the law if it favors them, but who becomes a heavy-handed, well-financed scofflaw if it doesn’t, especially if [...]

Sierra Club Lawsuit Against Cove Point, 2 Other LNG Plants Tossed

Thought Piece I use to be a member of the Sierra Club and I am a great admirer of fellow Wisconsinite John Muir, but I haven’t been able to stomach them since they adopted their anti-fossil fuel persona. Their political activism has developed into an environmental Luddite machine without an ounce of understanding of the importance [...]

The Clean Power Plan Is Irrelevant

Thought Piece Environmentalists have been taken by surprise by the remarkable shale oil evolution over the last decade and its benefits to the global environment and international economic development. Instead, they have made fossil fuels, including the natural gas and tight oil, into a dark conspiracy perpetrated by large energy companies equivalent to the military-industrial complex [...]

Liberal Commentator: Death Threats Against EPA Director Make Sense

Thought Piece For the record, the Clean Power Plan is a great example of undemocratic regulation, environmental extremism, faulty constitutional thinking, media manipulation, extensive use of executive orders, moral rectitude, name-calling, populist rhetoric, ideological purity, demonization of the opposition, total inability to  negotiate with the loyal opposition, and poor understanding of basic global economic development. Steve [...]
