Feds Push $5.3 Billion In Regulatory Costs With Just 3 New Regulations

The Obama administration were busy last week pushing regulations that will cost the American businesses and consumers more than $5.3 billion and 7.7 million hours in paperwork burdens, according to a report.

CNN Tries To Start A Debate Battle Over Global Warming – Fails

CNN’s Jake Tapper tried to highlight the differences between Republican presidential candidates over the issue of manmade global warming last night, but his debate plan to get candidates to go head-to-head on climate failed.

The Real Winner Of Obama’s ‘War On Coal’: George Soros

The real winner of President Barack Obama’s so-called “war on coal” isn’t the Environmental Protection Agency, nor is it the natural gas industry. It’s liberal billionaire George Soros. Last week, Obama’s EPA announced sweeping regulations for U.S. power plants, forcing them to drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions 32 percent by 2030. The news sent shockwaves through the coal industry, sending stocks tumbling and forcing the industry’s two biggest players to consider bankruptcy Read more […]

Obama Commits US To Even Deeper CO2 Cuts To Appease UN

The Obama administration is unveiling a new regulatory agenda Monday that touts cuts to carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, all in an effort to show the U.S. is ready to “lead on climate action.” The announcement comes with less than five months until the United Nations climate summit in Paris this year. The EPA’s so-called Clean Power requires states to cut CO2 emissions from power plants 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, a slightly more aggressive target than the agency initially Read more […]

Wind Lobby Scrambles To Hide Alleged Influence Of Foreign Companies

Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist Says Obama Is ‘Dead Wrong’ On Global Warming

In 2008, Dr. Ivar Giaever joined over 70 Nobel Science Laureates in endorsing Barack Obama for president, but seven years later the Nobel Prize winner now stands against the president on global warming. “I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem,” Giaever, who won the Nobel for physics in 1973, told an audience at the Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting earlier this month. Giaever ridiculed Obama for stating that “no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate Read more […]

Is Germany’s ‘Green’ Revolution Running Out Of Money?

It wasn’t long ago that President Barack Obama was pointing to Germany as an example of how the U.S. should develop green energy, but that was before news that Europe’s biggest economy might be running out of money for its green energy revolution. Germany’s $412 billion plan to power itself with green energy may be running low on cash, according to a new report by financial consultants, as consumer energy prices skyrocket and traditional power plants require more subsidies to stay in business. “The Read more […]

California Governor to EPA: Impose Harsher Regulations on Other States

California Gov. Jerry Brown is joining the heads of four other states in asking the Environmental Protection Agency to tighten U.S. smog standards — a regulation that could be the costliest in history.

Texas Now Produces More Natural Gas than All of OPEC

Everything is bigger in Texas, especially natural gas production. The Lone Star State alone produces more natural gas than every country in the world, except Russia, and that includes every member state of OPEC. The American Petroleum Institute has released a graphic showing that Texas produces 18.81 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, well above any member of OPEC. The graphic is meant to show how hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling into shale formations has made the U.S. the world’s top Read more […]

Did EPA Collude With Eco-Activists To Push A Federal Water Takeover?

The Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of finalizing a new “Waters of the United States” regulation that would greatly expand the agency’s control over U.S. waters, and may even give the EPA the power to regulate ponds, ditches and puddles. Republican lawmakers, however, are pushing back against the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, warning the agency may have inappropriately lobbied and worked with environmental campaign activists to inflate the support behind the agency’s water Read more […]
