The Supreme Court determined that the EPA overstepped the boundaries of its authority when it tried to use the Clean Air Act to regulate certain hazardous chemicals without first considering the financial impact on industry.
Scientists working for the U.N. say a new “computer model” developed at an obscure U.K. university shows the planet faces a “catastrophic” food shortage by 2040. The Global Sustainability Institute[…]
Global warming alarmists are not using the scientific method when making their wild predictions, but rather, rely on imaginative “scenarios” and “stories about what happened in the future,” which are[…]
I report tonight with shock and sadness that long-time Heartland Institute policy advisor Alan Caruba has passed away. Alan was a patriot, an online entrepreneur, and a brave and tireless writer. We were honored to publish his work at this blog, and to call him a friend.
WASHINGTON — The Environmental Protection Agency is pursuing an “extreme regulatory agenda,” but Congress is using its oversight authority to rein in the rogue agency, said Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas)[…]
WASHINGTON –In an interview with National Public Radio (NPR), President Obama revealed that regulations requiring U.S. companies to reduce emissions for “climate change” are part of his proposed free trade[…]
Thirteen states plus Washington DC have now adopted the Next Generation Science Standards, the new name for Common Core Science Standards. The early adopter states are as follows: California Delaware[…]
The federal government this week disclosed that it is making its data on patient care outcomes available for commercial use, though individual patient profiles will still remain private. The goal[…]
“[This is a] big victory that has been a long-time coming,” said John Nothdurft, director of government relations at The Heartland Institute, in reaction to Gov. Brownback signing the bill yesterday. “States are now moving in the right direction and rolling back these policies.
Lawmakers in the U.K. are moving to ban synthetic psychoactive substances – colloquially known as “legal highs.” This may presage a similar policy move in the U.S. Ireland completely banned[…]
What if global climate change could actually reduce ground-level ozone levels? A group of scientists at the University of Houston say that higher land temperatures could actually be cleaning the air in coastal cities worldwide – and that could spell disaster for our current environmental policies.
Research scientists are banding together and refuting radical environmental activists who have harassed them and their colleagues, calling the forthcoming progressive “March Against Monsanto” this Saturday in Chicago, and related[…]
It is impossible to overstate what a blow-out this debate was for Marc Morano. He was the Harlem Globetrotters to the Environmental Defense Fund’s Washington Generals. The only things missing were the bucket of confetti trick and a dribbling exhibition by Curly Neal.
Wemple can’t be bothered to discuss the simple scientific fact that for decades climate models have been spitting out unskillful, basically wrong forecasts. This proves—logically proves—that the models are flawed, that they are in error, that they should not be trusted until they are fixed.
We are (thank God) in the fourth quarter of the Barack Obama Administration. Our long national nightmare is more than three-quarters over.
That’s the good news. The bad news is – everyone in the Barack Obama Administration knows it too.
This waning Administration is in the pummel-the-private-sector business. And there is arguably no tentacle of the federal Leviathan better equipped to do it than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). After all – it’s the EPA’s sole reason for being.
When a former “senior communications official at the White House” writes a blog post for U.S. News and World Report, you should be able to trust it. But when the author states that the Keystone pipeline would create only 19 weeks of temporary jobs, everything else he says must be suspect—including the claim that our “energy infrastructure will be 100 percent solar by 2030.”
