Hoist by their own retard

New York Times op-ed headline:  “Climate Progress, With or Without Trump.” So the Trump administration is powerless to stop the huge, fast and unstoppable green envirotrain? And what’s this: Trump can’t retard the movement — the people — or the free market — from acting in their own best interests? Yeah, well, that’s what conservatives have […]

Shocker: Chinese air pollution debunks U.S. EPA junk science

The Chinese city of Xi’an has some of the worst air quality in the world. Yet its air is significantly safer than the air in U.S. cities, according to a new study. And if you have trouble believing that, then you ought to have trouble believing Obama Environmental Protection Agency claims that U.S. ambient air […]

Junk Science War: Fracking Quakes and ‘Dirty Faces’

Though I write to defend the natural gas industry from the junk science hurled at it and the drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing (fracking), I do so with mixed emotions. Two recent government reports, one from the United Kingdom and the other from Oklahoma, have tried to draw a connection between fracking and seismic […]

EPA chief’s toxic emissions

It is time for Lisa P. Jackson to resign. Last Friday at Howard University, the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) railed against the coal industry, saying, “In [the coal industry’s] entire history – 50, 60, 70 years or even 30 – they never found the time or the reason to clean up their […]

Air-pollution scare debunked

By Steve Milloy and Dr. John Dale Dunn What if today’s levels of air pollution didn’t kill anybody? That certainly would be bad news for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which has spent the past 15 years stubbornly defending its extraordinarily expensive and ever-tightening air-quality regulations. The EPA claims airborne fine particulate matter kills […]

Clean energy’s junk economics

The oxymoron-ish nature of a left-wing “think tank” is on display in the Center for American Progress’ latest pitch for a so-called “clean energy standard” (CES). In a new white paper, CAP says that clean energy opponents (like us), “…have built a fear campaign about the impacts of these investments, arguing that the costs are […]

Mercury is NOT TOXIC to anyone…

… at ambient exposure levels in the U.S. Yesterday, the U.S. Environmental over-Protection Agency proposed “the first-ever national standards for mercury, arsenic and other toxic air pollution from power plants.” The EPA stated, Toxic air pollutants like mercury from coal- and oil-fired power plants have been shown to cause neurological damage, including lower IQ, in […]

Defund the EPA

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has hit the ground running with its greenhouse-gas regulations. But congressional Republicans are just getting around to introducing well-intended, but futile legislation to stop the agency. There is another way. The GOP could rescue us from the EPA as soon as March, but it won’t. Does the GOP have a […]

Obama detached from reality of his regulation

President Obama has allegedly given up cigarettes but his op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal makes us wonder what they’re now smoking in the White House. In “Toward a 21st-Century Regulatory System,” President Obama rhapsodizes about the value and necessity of balanced regulation. On a superficial level, even the libertarian economist Milton Friedman would have […]

EPA’s desperate new smog scare

A new study reports that people can suffer lung damage from ground-level ozone (smog) even at the strict new standards proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But this is yet another example of how science can be manufactured by EPA to fit its regulatory agenda. Last month, the EPA delayed finalizing its proposed ozone […]

EPA outsmarts biomass industry

“Biomass-inine” is the only way to describe the biomass industry’s deal with the EPA. Administrator Lisa Jackson announced today that the biomass industry would be exempt from the agency’s greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations for three years, pending more research on whether biomass is truly “carbon neutral”: The agency intends to use this time to seek […]

Green backlash against House GOP begins — lamely

Green groups commenced their assault on the House GOP today, accusing last week’s legislative efforts to rein in the EPA’s climate regulations as “a threat to public health.” In condemning Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s bill (H.R. 97) to amend the Clean Air Act to exclude greenhouse gases, Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) issued a media release […]
