Debunking Democrats on Drilling

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last Tuesday dismissively referred to pro-oil-drilling demonstrators chanting “Drill here! Drill now!” as the “2-cents-in-10-years-crowd.” She may have to revise her insult strategy, since it seems that some mere pro-drilling...

The Real Population Bomb

It’s been 40 years since Stanford University population biologist Paul Ehrlich warned of imminent global catastrophe in his book “The Population Bomb.” As it turns out, the book was aptly, though ironically, named. Ehrlich predicted...

Environmentalists Prompt Nuclear Power Wake-Up Call

What did the nuclear power industry get for playing footsie with the “greens” on global warming? A knife in the back, it looks like. The greens now are saying that emission-free nuclear power may...

‘Poisoned Profits’: Recycled Junk Science

Former New York Times environmental reporter Phil Shabecoff is so green he even recycles debunked health scares. Shabecoff’s new book, “Poisoned Profits: How Corporate America Is Poisoning Our Children With Toxic Chemicals,” claims to “reveal...

Is T. Boone Pickens ‘Swiftboating’ America?

President Bush almost got it right this week when he declined to call on Americans to conserve energy. Sadly, he still seems to think that conservation is a win-win proposition; worse, so do both...

The Wind Cries ‘Bailout!’

Texas oilman T. Boone Pickens launched a media blitz this week to announce his plan for us “to escape the grip of foreign oil.” Now he’s got himself stuck between a crock and a...

Junk Science: Georgia Gets Green ‘Justice’

Vicki Lawrence’s 1972 hit “The night the lights went out in Georgia” may become the official state song thanks to what passes for justice in the court of Fulton County, Ga., Judge Thelma Wyatt...

Where’s McCain’s ‘Fuel Cell Express’?

NASA’s James Hansen tried this week to surf the 20th anniversary of his famous congressional testimony that launched global warming hysteria. Apparently not wanting to be left out of the green hoopla, John McCain...

Al Gore’s Epic Hypocrisy

Al Gore imagines that future poets will be singing his praises 1,000 years from now. In the meantime back on Planet Earth, he may have to settle for the slings and arrows that he...

Greens thwart gasoline production

Four-plus dollar gasoline is forcing Americans to realize that increased domestic oil production is needed to meet our ever-growing demand for affordable gasoline. But even if the Greens lose the political battle over drilling offshore...

Time to Retire ‘Denier’

In Charles Krauthammer’s May 30 must-read column, “Carbon Chastity,” he rightly lambastes environmentalists as resurrected communists/socialists who have latched on to the environment and climate change as a means to advance their anti-people social...

The green blitzkrieg hit the ExxonMobil annual shareholder meeting this week. The meeting featured 17 shareholder proposals, the vast majority of which were filed by left-leaning “investors” seeking, in one way or another, to pressure...

Global Warming’s New ‘Consensus’

There’s a new global warming consensus in town. It’s too bad the once-level-headed, but now chicken-hearted Bush Administration has already skedaddled, perhaps leaving our standard of living at the mercy of Barack Obama and...
