Many causes more pressing than warming

By Freedom New Mexico California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger told the United Nations General Assembly last week nations everywhere should emulate California’s climate control efforts because “The consequences of global climate change are so pressing.” About the same time, nearly two dozen prominent scientists denounced an Associated Press story that had painted a similar picture of […]

Letters to the Editor: Firefighting dangerous business

Sometimes I find it hard to believe smart people with educations can have such a lack of common sense. This whole issue with firefighters’ pay is a no-brainer. Most city employees don’t have the continuing education that a firefighter/paramedic must have to keep his or her license. I understand that the police fill in for […]

Extreme heat recorded before CO2 began rising

By Freedom Newspapers While Americans were being stampeded at great cost and inconvenience into combating the presumed horrors of manmade global warming, some news largely went unnoticed last week. Instead of 1998 being the “hottest year” in the continental United States since 1880, as some global warming alarmists claimed, it turns out 1934 was. Instead […]

Smithsonian’s partnerships should be focus

With no apparent sense of the ironies involved, congressional Democrats have been holding highly politicized, extremely one-sided hearings on allegations that the Bush administration relies on highly politicized, one-sided science in policy decisions. The Climate Change Inquisition is about to shift its focus to the venerable Smithsonian Institution, which stands accused of the usual heresy […]

Gore’s global warming warning goes to extremes

By Freedom Newspapers Former Vice President Al Gore returned to Washington on Wednesday to whip up global warming hysteria, calling on Congress to cut greenhouse gases 90 percent by 2050 and impose new taxes on carbon emissions. “I know the phrase sounds shrill,” was Gore’s own understated assessment of his testimony before the House Energy […]

Global warming issue deserves closer inspection

Freedom Newspapers Tree worshippers and wood nymphs will take this news hard, but scientists are increasingly pointing to forests as a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. This challenges the widely held belief that mankind is the primary cause of the problem and that we can slow the rate of climate change, and offset industrial […]

Melanie Salazar The Air Force is continually improving upon itself and it’s up to Airmen and civilian employees to make sure leaders address the right issues. The Air Force Climate Survey, open to active-duty, civilians, Air Force Reserve Command and Air National Guard, begins Saturday and ends Nov. 23. To take the survey online, visit […]

Alternative pact better answer for environment

Freedom Newspapers We’re sure it won’t do much to placate Bush administration critics in the Environmental Anxiety Industry, who won’t be satisfied until the United States binds itself to economy-killing emissions caps included in the unratified Kyoto Treaty. But we like the change of approach signaled by the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, […]

More studies on global warming theory needed

It’s time for a cool and collected second look at the global warming theory. The conviction that the world is dangerously overheating as a result of human activities has Chicken Littles everywhere all aflutter, and demanding that the Bush administration remake the U.S. economy in an effort to prevent disaster. But before we embark on […]
