John Andrist: The Science Is Settled, Or Maybe Not

John Andrist: The Science Is Settled, Or Maybe Not

Every day there is some kind of report in our news, detailing a new finding, the result of another survey or research study. I generally believe them. But I’m wondering why. Many of those studies contradict a previous finding, which no doubt was the result of a similar study. I read the other day that


Who Are The Flat Earthers Now?

In 1956 geologist M. King Hubbert predicted that American oil production would peak in 1970 and begin to decline. In 1969, when it became clear that his previous prediction would prove inaccurate, Hubbert named 2000 as the new peak year for oil production. Hubbert, you may be just realizing, was the creator of the now-famous theory


James Kerian: The Man-Made Global Warming Hoax Is Over

A lot of people thought that the scandal at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in 2009 would end the political/academic fundraising schemes that center around the theory that anthropogenic global warming will cause imminent disaster.  It didn’t turn out that way.  AGW was such a perfect narrative for motivating left-wing activists/donors that no


Matt Evans: If The EPA Cares About Me So Much, It Can Send A Card

I am responding to Mr. Olsrud’s article from Wednesday, titled “when did the EPA become the bad guys”. Go read the piece, if you haven’t.  I’ll wait. I was really disappointed when I read this.  Given the stature and experience of the author, I was hoping for something better and more convincing. The first difficulty


FEMA Will Begin Denying Funding To States With “Climate Denier” Governors

The federal government likes to use federal funding as a way to lure or, once hooked, bludgeon states into going along with federal policies. Now it seems the feds will be tying federal funds to matters of ideology and political opinion. Dispute the “climate change” consensus? Believe the threat of global warming is so much

Is Dirty North Dakota Snow Causing Climate Change?

According to a group of researchers, North Dakota’s snow is dirty (mostly from blown dirt and dust), and that the dirty snow is contributing to climate change: ‘The (darker) snowpack absorbs more sunlight, contributing to the warming of the snowpack, warming of the surface air and earlier melt of the snowpack,’ she said from her


Was There Anyone Who Questioned That Climate Changes?

After years of deriding Republicans for repeated legislative attempts to repeal Obamacare – something which would have rolled back actual policy for actual reasons (agree with them or not) – Democrats made one of their first acts as the Senate minority an amendment to the Keystone bill declaring that climate change is real and “not a


Energy Industry-Backed Curriculum Doesn’t Mention Global Warming, Media Flips Out

Forum Communications reporter Grace Lyden wrote an article over the weekend blasting the energy industry for creating education curriculum which doesn’t mention global warming (or “climate change” as it is being called these days). I’m honestly not sure what the fuss is. Teaching “climate change” in a class about energy development sounds a bit like


Katie Tubb: Why The Dollars And Cents Of Keystone Matter

Anyone familiar with the Keystone XL Pipeline debate is familiar with the name Tom Steyer. The billionaire has spent millions on his campaign fighting the Keystone XL Pipeline and its alleged contribution to global warming. He and others along with him have pledged $100 million in campaign funds to candidates taking a stand against global
