    The Vatican’s climate change statement peddles eco-liberation theology based on the tedious demonization of markets and capitalism. There was no discussion at this week’s Vatican “conference” en route to Pope Francis’s encyclical on climate change. What’s to discuss? Anybody who disagrees is an apostate, destined for damnation. The important point is to stop them bringing […]

    Earth Day provided a fresh opening for Obama to raise alarms about global warming based on beliefs, not science. ‘Today, our planet faces new challenges, but none pose a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” President Obamawrote in his proclamation for Earth Day on Wednesday. “As a Nation, we must act before it is […]

  • Ed Rogers: Obama’s Global Warming Distraction

    President Obama is living in a world of denial.  He uses global warming as a distraction to dodge the real problems we face and avoid critiques of his performance. Incredibly, in Sunday’s weekly video address, President Obama said, “Today, there is no greater threat to our planet than climate change.”  I say “incredibly” because that just […]

  • Fossil Fools: What’s Wrong With Fossil Fuel Divestment

    • Date: 17/04/15
    • Walter Russell Mead, The American Interest

    Never underestimate the environmental movement’s ability to squander its resources. Today’s fossil fuel divestment campaign is the latest example of fecklessness, and yet another demonstration—as if we needed one—that greens don’t understand the problems they’re trying to fix. John Gapper writes for the FT: The [divestment] movement is an elaborate charade, which is too inconsistent and impractical to […]

But how many people today can stop looking at their electronic devices long enough to even think about such things?   Meanwhile, attempts to shut down people whose free speech interferes with other […]

    India’s Prime Minister is typically called “controversial” or “divisive,” which means the liberal establishment of India and internationally don’t like him.  I don’t know if he deserves the accolade as the “Ronald Reagan of India,” but I hear he has some reformist instincts about opening up India’s economy and fighting corruption. One thing his government […]

    As the Ontario government announces new unilateral climate policies, Canadian policymakers would be well advised to heed the lessons of Europe’s self-defeating green energy debacle. The European Union has long been committed to unilateral efforts to tackle climate change. For the last 20 years, Europe has felt a duty to set an example through radical […]
