President Barack Obama fiddles in Paris while his EPA attempts to burn Wisconsin’s economy. Over at the MacIver Institute, I comment on the testimony from WE Energies at a Senate hearing chaired by Senator Ron Johnson on the Clean Power Plan. We may not be sure of all of the numbers yet but we know […]

The climate change edition: In the run-up to the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11, rich countries and development organizations are scrambling to join the fashionable ranks of “climate aid” donors. This effectively means telling the world’s worst-off people, suffering from tuberculosis, malaria or malnutrition, that what they […]

Hey, let’s bring back a classic: Acid rain is making a comeback: — Ezra Klein (@ezraklein) January 16, 2014 Tune in next month when the crisis becomes the impending global famine. I’m looking forward to them blowing the dust off that one, too. This planet would be a lot nicer if it didn’t […]

Saw this over at WGN’s website: I miss global warming. I wonder if WGN has to issue a refund with that kind of ad placement? By the way, you know you’re loving this story. Turney‘s team is studying climate change, as well as how wildlife is adapting to it. He noted that numerous penguins have […]

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama announced his plans to attack the nation’s energy infrastructure to fight the global warming that hasn’t been seen for 15 years and counting.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has signed his city up in the Resilient Communities for America. In my latest online op-ed for RightWisconsin (subscription required, but a bargain just to read me), I laugh at Milwaukee’s claim to be a leader in the Resilient Communities: Why is Milwaukee such a resiliency leader?

According to Reuters, “clean energy” is not fast enough to save the Earth. (Reuters) – The development of low-carbon energy is progressing too slowly to limit global warming, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Wednesday. With power generation still dominated by coal and governments failing to increase investment in clean energy, top climate scientists […]

This one takes the prize against some pretty stiff competition. Deb Feyerick of CNN should never be allowed near a science topic again until she re-takes the sixth grade. Feyerick asked Bill Nye, aka The Science Guy, if an asteroid coming close to the Earth is the result of global warming. Talk about something else […]
