Global warming bill on political tipping point

A global-warming tipping point is approaching, but not the one alarmists predicted of an irreversible, overheated climate. Instead, it’s a political tipping point that can determine whether the economy will be handed over to Draconian, top-down government control on the pretense of curbing global warming, or whether the free market will be left to function […]

Free trade would lessen effects of global crises

Freedom New Mexico The Iceland volcano hasn’t merely disrupted travel across much of Europe, it also is blowing ash over the global economy in the midst of a recession already the worst since the Great Depression. “The tentacles of the crisis have already stretched into the global supply chain,” the Washington Post reported Monday. Among […]

Discrepancies discredit global warming data

Freedom New Mexico The rush to impose Draconian, costly regulations to fight global warming is based on allegedly “settled science” showing manmade greenhouse gases increase temperatures. This belief system’s high priests at the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have issued successive reports trumpeting the danger, concluding that we must act immediately. But the science […]

Crusade against global warming losing support

Freedom New Mexico The Obama administration has declared greenhouse gases to be harmful pollutants, arming the government to wage war by administrative decree on the presumed threat of global warming. The Environmental Protection Agency’s pronouncement Monday is troubling. It could well foreshadow economy-crimping, freedom-denying, Draconian controls. It’s doubtless also meant to prod Congress, where a […]

Greenhouse gas legislation satisfies few

Freedom New Mexico In a major blow to the campaign against the presumed threat of global warming, world leaders acknowledge that a legally binding global treaty won’t be approved at next month’s 192-nation climate conference in Copenhagen. The concession significantly delays U.N. efforts to orchestrate a treaty to limit greenhouse gases to replace the Kyoto […]

Unnecessary cap and trade bill averted

Freedom New Mexico The world can breathe a sigh of relief. Unnecessary economic destruction at the hands of climate zealots is likely to be averted at least another year. An international treaty to combat global warming almost certainly won’t be reached this year, despite U.N. and climate change extremists’ insistence that agreement on worldwide greenhouse […]

Curbing global warming game of domination

Freedom New Mexico The G-8 summit of industrialized nations agreed last week to try to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius over the next four decades by reducing their greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent. That nonbinding agreement is likely to carry less weight than the resistance of developing countries like China and India to […]

Global warming numbers need re-examination

If fighting global warming may cost the economy $9.6 trillion and more than 1 million lost jobs by 2035, as the Heritage Foundation forecasts, it’d be a good idea to be sure there’s a sound basis before making such a massive sacrifice. We’ve noted before that climate change is occurring as it always has, but […]
