Climate alarmists are following the time-honored tradition of revolutions: The children of the revolution are cannibalizing their parents. In an article in the Guardian, Naomi Oreskes labels prominent godfathers of[…]
America has the resources to be the world’s number one producer of oil, natural gas, and coal. The development of these mighty energy industries would be the backbone of renewed booming economic growth and prosperity for the United States.
There is no enforcement mechanism in the climate accords drafted at COP21. But not to worry – according to John Kerry, nations will “self-report” and provide assistance to each other, even without having to be accountable to any authority.
The Democrat Party-controlled-media never report that trace carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is essential to the survival of all life on the planet! Plants need CO2 to grow and conduct photosynthesis, which is the natural process that creates food for animals and fish at the bottom of the food chain. Without CO2, plants would die, and without plants, animals, including humans, would die for lack of food.
David Haynes’ column last week on global warming (“We need straight talk on climate change,” Dec. 1) was especially frustrating for those of us who closely follow the scientific and political debate. I appreciate his invitation to share my thoughts with Journal Sentinel readers.

The Senate will not approve or appropriate money for anything President Obama might agree to in Paris, and developing countries will not (and should not) stop building coal-fired power plants and using fossil fuels to lift billions out of abject poverty. However, we cannot let down our guard.

PARIS – Halfway through the United Nations COP21 climate conference in Paris, the UN on Friday released a “draft agreement” that illustrates the futility and irrelevance of the UN conference.
Paris, the City of Light, which earned its moniker by being an early adapter of natural gas to light its public spaces, is currently hosting COP21 (the 21st Conference of the Parties)—often referred to as the UN Climate Change Conference—that aims to end the use of fossil fuels. There, more than 150 world leaders gathered under the guise of, supposedly, slowing the warming of the planet.
The North West United States is receiving some relief, recovering from early season record setting cold temperatures in late November. Cities in Northern California experiencing record low temperatures for November[…]
Negotiators trying to develop a strong climate agreement in Paris face significant hurdles. The goal of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 21st Conference of the Parties is to produce an international agreement that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by an amount necessary to prevent a 2-degree Celsius rise in global average temperature in this century. The conference is likely to fail to meet this goal.
PARIS (December 6) — The Heartland Institute, the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), and members of the “Cooler Heads Coalition” are hosting a one-day event in Paris that will[…]
