Believe it or not, there is a worldwide Sustainable Development policy not to fund development projects in Third World countries if the projects don’t meet the political agenda. It’s called the Equator Principles.

A leaked report by the United Nations presents evidence that fear-mongering over global warming may be a little too ambitious.

Naturalist David Attenborough recently said that man was a plague upon the Earth, a common belief among Gaia-worshipping atheists. But is this perspective the fruit of a well-formed conscience or a deformed one? And will it lead to preservation or destruction?

Liberal icon Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, “You’re entitled to your own opinions, but you’re not entitled to your own facts.” But that was decades ago, and today more leftists than ever have graduated from confusion to delusion and believe they’re entitled to their own fiction.

The story line in the new theatrical release Promised Land is obviously intended to leave audiences with a very dim and scary view of fracking and the companies that use this new method of drilling to tap vast amounts of oil and natural gas that otherwise would be inaccessible. But the depiction in Promised Land is so fantastic that the intent could backfire. Indeed, by the end of the film, moviegoers may be left annoyed and offended by the blatant attack on fracking. Indeed, this reviewer was very annoyed. (Warning: spoilers follow.)

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught fudging the climate data again, and its MSM choir, as usual, uncritically reports the doctored data and scary scenarios as facts.

It has been rightly said that “power corrupts,” an axiom that is reinforced again and again as the federal government controls more aspects of our lives without oversight.

The U.S. government says that in the last 90 days, it instituted nearly 6,000 new rules, with loads more to come. If its plans remain unchecked, we’ll face another economic “cliff.”

Federal Brazilian police and military personnel, some wearing the United Nations insignia, are forcibly relocating whole communities in Brazil at gunpoint under the guise of returning huge tracts of land to Indians whose ancestors were allegedly there at some point. Thousands of local residents who have lived in the area for decades or were even born there, however, are fighting back, with critics saying the government’s actions smack of Stalinism and may constitute crimes against humanity.

The release of a conveniently long-lost report showing that fracking is safe puts New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo in a tight spot: continue to appease environmentalists by delaying further the development of the rich Marcellus Formation under his state, or letting the free market extract those resources and generate thousands of jobs and millions in revenue to the state.
