Fitch: Low River Levels Likely To Increase Arizona Water Bills

The expected water cuts from the Colorado River as a result of the Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) will likely mean higher water utility rates, according to Fitch Ratings.

What Is Good For The Climate Geese Is NOT Good For The Ganders

The billionaires prolificating “green” for the world, such as Mike Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Al Gore, Leonardo DiCaprio, and others are the same individuals amassing huge carbon footprints for their numerous private jets, houses, boats, and cars. For Bloomberg alone, a Business Insider analysis found that Bloomberg’s emissions-heavy private jets took more […]

REAL Threats To Planet And People

Totalitarian actions in the name of ‘climate change’ threaten wildlife, people and freedoms.   Environmental activism was already nasty and lethal when I wrote Eco-Imperialism: Green Power – Black Death 18 years ago. It’s gotten steadily worse since then, especially with hysteria about the “looming manmade climate apocalypse” driving ever more extreme demands that we […]

Activists Panicked CFACT Will Correct Them On Climate

If there’s anything climate computer modelers and warming activists fear, it’s real-world hard data that corrects their exaggerations. CFACT’s Marc Morano is expert on just that.  Climate Depot puts climate claims in perspective through reliance on actual measured temperature and historical weather data.  All that objective reporting gives the Left the willies. Here’s a perfect example.  The […]

Blackouts Loom in California as Electricity Prices Are ‘Absolutely Exploding’

Editors’ Note:  While California’s descent into mismanagement is a policy lesson for Arizona, it could well become a burden for Arizona. California will be looking to import power when power is needed for the growth of Arizona. Arizona must not follow in their footsteps with “green fantasies”. The actions and leadership of our Arizona Corporation […]

A “Tell” Upon America

The term “tell” is often used regarding poker playing or pulling a scam. It refers to a gesture, a look, a twitch someone has that indicates what they are thinking. For example, a person always scratches his forehead when he is bluffing in poker. I recently encountered a situation that was itself not significant. Yet […]

Why We Shop at Walmart Instead of Whole Foods

Years ago it was popular for companies to sponsor a day for employees to take their kids to the office to see where mom or dad worked. My wife got stuck with organizing one of the days for her employer. In an introductory exercise, she had the kids sit around a conference table and take […]

44 Things You Should Know about the Green New Deal

What should we make of this Green New Deal? On Feb. 7, US Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and US Sen. Ed Markey introduced legislation known as the Green New Deal. You’ve probably heard of it. It’s a big deal, to paraphrase Joe Biden. The History of New Deals Wikipedia, the internet’s fountain of knowledge, describes the legislation as […]

Climate Models: Worse Than Nothing?

“Climate modeling is central to climate science….” (Stephen Koonin, below)   When the history of climate modeling comes to be written in some distant future, the major story may well be how the easy, computable answer turned out to be the wrong one, resulting in overestimated warming and false scares from the enhanced (man-made) greenhouse […]

Swiss Voters Reject Climate Legislation

The Swiss have one of the few federal systems in the world. And interestingly, they are perhaps the only country to limit government power through a federal system of cantons and direct initiative voting that developed before, and independently of England. Other countries that have a dispersion of power systems like the United States and […]

Biden Backward On Energy

The Biden White House is run by ideologues who do not understand the real world. Nowhere is this more evident than on energy. CFACT joined a coalition of nine public policy organizations to co-sign a letter detailing the egregious mistake that regressing to the “CAFE” fuel standards for vehicles would be.  Read the full letter.

Beijing Power Players Poised To Pull Plug On Prospects To Go ‘All-Electric’

Editors’ Note:  Even if one accepts the dubious proposition that carbon emissions cause global warming, it seems to us almost insane to wreck America’s energy infrastructure, while giving China a free pass on coal-fired plants until 2030. All of the U.S. sacrifices would do nothing to improve the situation as China is the main contributor […]

DEMOCRAT EPIC FAIL: Federal Judge Lifts Biden’s Moratorium on New Oil and Gas Leases on Federal Land

How Many Species Have Gone Extinct?

Editors’ Note:  Not many people keep a scorecard on the veracity of public statements.  If they did, they would find that most predictions from government and private organizations concerning “the environment” have a poor track record.  Many are based on faulty computer modeling and many tend to the hyperbolic to encourage fundraising or political action.

Do Climate Alarmists Believe Their Own Predictions?

In public discourse, it’s considered bad form to insult your opponent’s integrity. But it’s almost impossible to believe that climate alarmists believe their own apocalyptic predictions. Greta Thunberg, Al Gore, and other experts sternly warned that our planet will be an uninhabitable, unsalvageable oven unless within 15 years (now 10 or 12) we bend all […]

RETURN OF THE PRIMITIVE: G7 Leaders to Agree Anti-Coal, Anti-Car, and Carbon-Cutting Targets

The war on industry and capitalism is war on freedom, individualism and personal liberty (and more immediately – the American worker).
