Dr. Mann is clearly committed to labeling folks like me “deniers,” which doesn’t really bother me, so long as everybody is clear about what is being denied. What do scientists (and I’m just a lowly chemist, not an exalted climatologist or anything) like me deny? Let us review.
In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Adrian P. Wydeven, Coordinator of Timber Wolf Alliance, Northland College and a retired wildlife biologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Wisconsin’s state wolf manager 1990 -2013.

Environmentalists like a good crisis. Spreading fear is a proven fundraising technique—with manmade climate change as the fear du jour. But, back in 2005, the “looming crisis,” according to the Kansas Sierra Club, was the end of cheap oil. The post concludes: “The end of cheap oil, followed by the end of cheap natural gas, threatens to cripple strong economies and devastate weak ones.” The author posits: “The world burns oil faster than new oil is discovered.”
Beginning with the initial publication of Michael Mann’s “hockey stick” graph by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, if not before, global warming alarmists have tried to write[…]
The heat is on!

New York Attorney General (AG) Eric Schneiderman has opened an investigation into Exxon Mobil, the world’s largest energy company, and subpoenaed all company documents related to climate change research since 1977. His office says it’s an effort to find out whether executives “lied to the public about the risks of climate change or to investors about how such risks might hurt the oil business.” This follows on the heels of calls from 50 environmental groups, both major Democratic candidates for the presidency, and Democratic members of Congress for a federal probe into the firm.

Happy New Year, All. ’Tis the time to resolve them if you’ve got them. For Republican presidential primary contenders, here’s an anti-Establishment thought: Pledge to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). (There are, after all, fifty state versions thereof. The federal is thus, at the very least, utterly redundant.)
In this edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast Independent Communications Consultant Jessica Sena and research fellow Isaac Orr discuss the impact of state regulatory plans to restrict development in areas deemed important habitat for sage grouse, a bird which inhabits eleven western states.

If you own a business—maybe a taco stand, a dress shop, or an insurance agency—you know it takes a lot of hard work, good market analysis, a better product or service than your competition, and advertising. Add in a bit of luck, and you hope to grow your business—though vacant storefronts and boarded up buildings in towns and cities across America show that isn’t always enough. Each going-out-of-business sale represents the death of someone’s dream.

Last year, when Republicans gained a decisive edge in both houses of Congress, I made predictions as to the six energy-policy changes we could expect—as the two parties have very different views on energy issues.
For 2016, Congress will need to stay on top of Obama’s rules, regulations, and executive orders aimed at burnishing his legacy on climate change. It should also rein in the EPA, reform the ESA, and work to reduce the amount of land owned by the federal government.
