After a successful trip to Rome this spring to combat climate alarmism, The Heartland Institute is now setting its sights on the COP-21 – the twenty-first meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris next month. And we request your help!
Interesting that National Geographic choose to title its latest edition “Cool It.” That’s the same as the title of Bjorn Lomborg’s 2007 book, which asks environmentalists to cool down their hot rhetoric about man-made global warming. Pity the folks at NatGeo didn’t read it.
The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation has long been a voice of sanity, sound science, sound economics and humanitarian concern for the poor, amongst myriad supposedly evangelical Christian[…]
New research has emerged showing the world’s oceans are cooling the planet by emitting vast amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. These VOCs are not presently accounted[…]
Dr. Jagadish Shukla, along with several other scientists, sent a letter to President Obama and Defense Sec. Loretta Lynch requesting that they bring RICO charges against “climate skeptics.” The letter, however, exposed some questionable financial dealings and a strange relationship between Shukla, taxpayers, and the research institute, Institute of Global Environment and Society.
In today’s episode of In The Tank, Donny and Jim debate about the unintended consequences of alcohol prohibition, and discuss proposed minimum wage hikes.

Klein’s greatest strength is recognizing that nothing less than the abolition of capitalism will achieve the drastic reductions in emissions her side is calling for … and she’s willing to say it out loud. I love that about her. The leaders of the environmental movement, who pretend this isn’t about ideology and that “stopping” climate change would be costless, hate her for revealing this.
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.
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.
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[…]
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.
