  • Environmental groups collecting millions from federal agencies they sue, studies show

    Deep-pocketed environmental groups are collecting millions of dollars from the federal agencies they regularly sue under a little-known federal law, and the government is not even keeping track of the payouts, according to two new studies. Under the Equal Access to Justice Act, or EAJA — which was signed into law by President Carter in 1980 to help the little guy stand up to federal agencies — litigants with modest means who successfully show government agencies wronged them can get their legal fees back from the taxpayer. But the act also covers 501(c)(3) nonprofits, including environmental groups that aggressively sue...

    Two contract biologists and the former director of forestry for the Yurok tribe are accused of embezzling some $900,000 in money intended for spotted owl research over the past three years. Court documents allege the men conspired to charge the tribe for phony spotted owl surveys on tribal forests, and that the former tribal forestry director improperly used a tribal credit card to buy iPads, car repairs, gasoline, and cleaning supplies.

  • Sen. Boxer to climate change deniers: ‘You are endangering humankind’

    Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) blasted skeptics of climate science Wednesday, alleging they are “endangering humankind.” “The message I have for climate deniers is this: you are endangering humankind,” Boxer said during a press conference in the Capitol. “It is time for climate deniers to face reality, because the body of evidence is overwhelming and the world’s leading scientists agree.” Boxer criticized skeptics of climate science, alleging they are standing in the way of significant progress toward lowering greenhouse gas emissions both domestically and internationally. “Wishing that climate change will go away by clinging to...
  • Gore: Global warming skeptics are this generation’s racists

    One day climate change skeptics will be seen in the same negative light as racists, at least so says former Vice President Al Gore. In an interview with former advertising executive and Climate Reality Project collaborator Alex Bogusky broadcasted on UStream on Friday, Gore explained that in order for climate change alarmists to succeed, they must “win the conversation” against those who deny there is a crisis. “I remember, again going back to my early years in the South, when the Civil Rights revolution was unfolding, there were two things that really made an impression on me,” Gore said. “My...

    In reaching to remain relevant, the environmental movement has had to change tactics.  Back in the seventies, when America looked like China does today, environmental issues needed attention. But then we cleaned up the air and water. The skies and rivers went from brown to blue. As Greenpeace cofounder Patrick Moore explains, in order to stay relevant, environmentalists had to find new issues.For most of the last decade global warming has been their cause, and carbon—or burning fossil fuels—was vilified as the cause. This gave way to a whole new industry: green. Green energy would replace fossil fuels. Wind and...
  • White House pivots to energy policy with 'clean vehicles' focus

    President Obama, who is under fire from Republicans over gasoline prices, will “outline his plan for America’s energy security” in a speech Wednesday and then tout advanced vehicles Friday at a UPS facility in Maryland, the White House said. Wednesday’s speech at Georgetown University will mark Obama's second high-profile remarks this month on energy. He addressed increased oil and gasoline prices at a March 11 press conference. The White House effort to seize control of the political narrative on energy comes amid constant GOP attacks on administration policies and unfolding Republican legislative plans.

    Global warming is sneaky. For more than a century it has been hiding large amounts of excess heat in the world's deep seas. Now that heat is coming to the surface again in one of the worst possible places: Antarctica. New analyses of the heat content of the waters off Western Antarctic Peninsula are now showing a clear and exponential increase in warming waters undermining the sea ice, raising air temperatures, melting glaciers and wiping out entire penguin colonies. "In the area I work there is the highest increase in temperatures of anywhere on Earth," said physical oceanographer Doug Martinson...

    Global warming charlatan Joseph C. Ben-Ami Institute for Canadian Values Monday, February 19, 2007 Witnesses in a legal trial are sometimes compelled to answer questions that have little or nothing to do with the subject they are testifying on in order to determine whether or not their word can be trusted in the absence of incontrovertible, corroborating evidence. If it can be shown that the witness is a liar, then the veracity of their testimony can, and should, be called into question. Which brings me to the subject of David Suzuki. It's hard to imagine any Canadian being unfamiliar...

    Kyoto already a big failure SCIENTISTS SUGGEST MAN-MADE EMISSIONS HAVE NO IMPACT By PETER WORTHINGTON TORONTO SUN Sunday, May 1, 2005 FOR THOSE uneasy about the Kyoto Protocol -- which all Canadian political parties endorse and the media tend to go along with -- a wake-up call is being issued by an impressive array of scientists. In fact, it is more than that. It is a categorical refutation of the whole concept that SUVs and man-made emissions, especially carbon dioxide, have any discernible effect on the climate. In other words, global warming is a myth. A political ploy. The...
  • Danish writer cleared of 'scientific dishonesty' (Enviroskeptic Bjorn Lomborg)

    Financial Times ^ | 12/18/03 | Vanessa Houlder in London and Clare MacCarthy in Copenhagen
    Bjorn Lomborg, the author of a controversial book attacking the environment movement, was cleared yesterday of "scientific dishonesty" by the Danish science ministry. The ministry overturned a ruling in January by the Danish committee on scientific dishonesty (DCSD), part of the Danish Research Agency, that Mr Lomborg's book The Skeptical Environmentalist was "clearly contrary to the standards of good scientific practice". Mr Lomborg hailed yesterday's decision as "brilliant". It provided confirmation that freedom of speech extended to the environmental debate, he said. In its report, the ministry criticised the committee for failing to provide evidence either that Mr Lomborg had...
