The German government aims to increase the share of renewable energies in electric power consumption from 30% today to 45% by 2025. Using a […]

    Friends of the Earth is corrupt in a noble cause. Which, unfortunately, means you cannot trust a word it says. Friends of the earth, but not of the truth. Increased risk of cancer and plummeting house prices are the primordial terrors of the middle classes. This horrific combination of physical and financial ruin just happens […]

    Honest scientific discourse and debate is often rendered impossible in the face of the ‘new catastrophism.’ In 2010, we published what is now a best-selling (and award-winning) book Canada Rocks-The Geologic Journey aimed at telling the dramatic story for a public audience of how Canada (and North America) has evolved over the last 4 billion […]

    • David S. D'Amato, Foundation for Economic Education
