Climate Alarmist Michael Mann Shrieks at ‘Inhuman Cretins’ for Skepticism

Thought Piece Dr. Michael Mann continues to communicate his point of view, with the confidence of the morally righteous. After hearing him testify at the Hearing of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology in March, I thought he was uncivil, glib, and anti-intellectual. Historically, Mann has tried to sue several people and media for [...]

A two-decade crusade by conservative charities fueled Trump’s exit from Paris climate accord

Thought Piece Another alarmist headline with more deeply prejudiced reporting. The portrayal of Myron Ebell, in all of its conspiratorial splendor, is so silly that I can't help think it was written by Jonathon Swift. Although, Myron has been an effective voice of the loyal opposition. S P.S. After hearing his annual salary, I think that he [...]

Who’s the Real Internet Censor: Comcast or Facebook?

Thought Piece In fact, there were three companies exempt from FCC's 2015 Title Open Internet: Google, Amazon and Facebook. Now those three companies are lobbying for Net Neutrality, while not disclosing that they were already exempt. This is an open display of self-interest by Google, Amazon, and Facebook. These companies would each become a veritable monopoly [...]

Bots Flood FCC with Millions of Comments About Net Neutrality

Thought Piece Of the 21.8 million comments recently made to FCC on the Net Neutrality, a data company Emprata determined that 19.4 of the comments came from entities that filed multiple times, originated aboard or used such techniques as faked domains typical of spam. It seems that self-righteousness and/or politics have overtaken the discussion about "Open [...]

CLIMATE Group seeks documents on disbanded advisory panel

Thought Piece I find myself thinking that the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) is too political and morally superior by 10. "Dumping a whole panel full of expert advisors show how badly Trump wants to avoid hearing the truth about climate change," according to Howard Crystal, a senior attorney for CBD's Climate Law Institute. The Center [...]

Harvey, the Storm That Humans Helped Cause

Thought Piece It was only a matter of time before the New York Times ran a story about climate change and Hurricane Harvey. And, it was only a matter of time before the Times had an Op-Ed headline like "Harvey, the Storm That Humans Helped Cause." Whenever the Times (or The Guardian for that matter) runs [...]

Harvey’s Lessons for America’s Stretched Energy Infrastructure

Thought Piece The US can't afford to face the future with any sense of certainty. Surely, Harvey reminds us that we have probably stretched many of our energy assets to the limits of reliability: Like we expect of the Public Service Commissions in all 50 states, we simply cannot become complacent with our economic and energy [...]

Fair Trade for Thee, but nor for me

Thought Piece   Friend Paul Driessen writes about the imbalance and illogic of the politically correct alarmists and the rest of us. As an old debater, I still am interested in the counter-arguments to each of Paul's points. After all, I am believer in the larger issues of global economic development and human ingenuity in the [...]

So What Happened to the Journalism?

Thought Piece Everything said about the state of British journalism can be said about the international and American environmental media. One can hope that Green Media doesn't remain "cocooned in the certainty" for much longer. So What Happened to the Journalism?
