Armed EPA Agents? The Truth Is Way Out There

 

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, the FBI agents on Fox’s The X-Files, have been known to draw weapons on aliens, poltergeists, and phantoms. But they have an excuse — they’re fictional characters in a network TV drama, coming back on-the-air soon after a long hiatus. Not so the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPAs) own, real-life agents. […]

The Climate Left’s Belief in Papal Infallibility

 

Pope Francis has yet to invoke the doctrine of papal infallibility for his environmental encyclical, Laudato si’. That would require the agreement of all of his bishops. Not all of the world’s leading Catholic clerics have concurred on the secular doctrine of environmental alarmism. But an unconventional ecumenical ally has. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency […]

The Climate Has Been Changing Since Genesis 1:1, So Why Is Pope Francis Suddenly So Concerned?

 

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) tells Townhall.com that he is planning to boycott the Congressional address of Pope Francis this week. The reason? The Congressman is concerned that the speech is going to be completely politically correct, not traditionally Christian in focus. He also is outraged that the secular progressives at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) […]

House Mulling Impeachment of EPA Administrator

 

Rep. Paul A. Gosar, (R-Az.) is leading an effort in the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Gina McCarthy, the scandal-plagued administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for providing false and misleading testimony before several House panels that oversee environmental policy. Jurisdiction for the impeachment by the House comes from the Constitution of the […]

Patent Legislation, Pending

 

Forty years ago, nearly no one cared about patents or patent law. Now, almost everyone does. The reason for the revisionism: the evolution of the economy. Splicing DNA became possible in the late 1970s. It started to become profitable in the Reagan-era 1980s. Personal computers were nearly unheard of when Ronald Reagan was elected President. […]

The President’s Clean Energy Farce

 

President Obama’s Clean Energy Summit last week was a farce and a flop, rivaled only by the mythical theatrical productions of Bialystock & Bloom. However, after enduring Obama’s speech at the Mandalay Bay Resort Convention Center in Las Vegas last Monday, no one was heard humming, in the manner of Matthew Broderick’s accountant-cum-show business-impresario character […]

Millennial Voters Want Results, Not Regulations

 

Hillary Clinton’s absolutely authoritarian environmental policy scheme makes Barack Obama’s audacious clean energy pitch seem timid. On the campaign trail in Ames, Iowa recently, the former Secretary of State said she wanted renewable energy to account for 33 percent of America’s electric power by 2027, 13 percent more than the president proposed last week. “I […]

Why Proficiency Testing Matters in Education

 

Recent controversies over Common Core standards have intensified the debate over high-stakes K-12 academic testing that became a national issue with President Bush’s No Child Left Behind Act. Holding schools accountable for children’s academic performance is simple common sense. A child who struggles to read in fourth grade is four times more likely to drop […]

Renewed Interest in Nuclear Power

 

Environmental activists privilege “renewable” power sources, such as wind and solar, and proclaim they can promptly reduce the West’s reliance on fossil fuels. But a new report on the economic and environmental contributions of nuclear power to the United States may help shift the debate. As consumers in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and even […]

Gallup Poll: Climate Change Causes Pope’s Poll Numbers to Implode in U.S.

 

Despite hysterical forecasts by some scientists, there’s been no empirical evidence of climate change for more than 18 years. But that has justchanged – dramatically. In the time since Pope Francis this spring publicly embraced global warming as “real” and “man-made,” his popularity numbers in the Gallup Tracking Poll have plummeted by 17 points. Climate change, […]
