  • Harvard Junk Science Study Claims High Pollution Levels Increase Deaths from COVID-19

    May 11, 2020
    Researchers at Harvard University in late April published a draft or preliminary study that concluded, “A small increase in long-term exposure to PM2.5 leads to a large increase in the COVID-19 death rate." PM2.5 is fine particulate matter in the air. The fact the study is a quick-and-dirty rush job indicates that the purpose is more to advance a political agenda than to advance scientific knowledge.

  • Hurry, See "Planet of the Humans," Before It’s Banned

    April 24, 2020

  • Trump Administration Finalizes New Vehicle Fuel Economy Rule

    April 3, 2020

  • COVID-19 Relief Bill Passes without Frivolous Green Baggage

    March 27, 2020
    The Senate passed a $2 trillion COVID-19 relief and economic stimulus bill by a 96-0 vote. The House passed the bill by voice vote on March 27. The House Democrats’ bill was so radical and most of it had so little to do with addressing the current health crisis or the resulting economic crisis that it discredited the more modest attempts to add irrelevant wind and solar tax credits to the bill in the Senate.
  • Energy Special Interests Demand Handouts in Massive Coronavirus Stimulus Bill

    March 20, 2020
    Energy special interests began swarming the Capitol, as Congress passed a second emergency spending bill addressing the coronavirus pandemic and began to put together a $1 trillion or larger stimulus bill to try to counteract the resulting economic downturn. They all want the same thing—handouts for their particular industry.
  • EPA, Interior, and other Federal Agencies Post Guidance Documents on Searchable Websites

    March 2, 2020
    On February 28, the EPA and other federal agencies posted all their guidance documents on searchable websites, complying with an OMB deadline to implement Executive Order 13891. Unlike federal regulations, guidance documents do not have to go through public notice and comment before being adopted. Yet, guidance documents are often enforced as if they were laws. Posting all guidance documents on searchable websites is a huge advance in government transparency. 
  • House Republican Leaders Introduce Pointless, Costly, But Virtue-Signaling Climate Legislation

    February 15, 2020
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and several senior Republicans announced they were going to introduce four bills to address climate change. On the bright side, none of the bills includes a tax on carbon dioxide emissions or mandatory targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. On the dark side, the four bills propose to waste a lot of taxpayer dollars and extend subsidies for commercially uncompetitive technologies.
