Yes, We Can Achieve Regenerative Agriculture

While agriculture is the foundation of civilization and of any stable economy, it is also, when poorly practiced, the most destructive industry—even more so than coal mining. Restoring ecological function, in part through regenerative agriculture, is the only way we will survive.

The Myth Of the 97% Climate Change Consensus

The Myth Of the 97% Climate Change Consensus

Claims continue to be made that “97% of scientists agree that climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” That’s what Secretary of State John Kerry told graduating Boston College students. It’s what President Obama said in his State of the Union address and a recent tweet. There’s just one problem – aside from the fact that this assertion is being used to help justify policies and regulations that are closing down fossil fuel power plants and crippling our economy, the claim is completely bogus.

NOAA: Temperature Data Shows U.S. in Decade-Long Cooling Trend

According to the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) temperature readings, the U.S. has cooled by approximately 0.4 degrees Celsius over the past 10 years. Of course, 10 years is hardly enough to establish a long-term trend. Nevertheless, the 10-year cooling period does present some interesting facts…

Global Warming Data FAKED By Government To Fit Climate Change Fictions

We now know that historical temperature data for the continental United States were deliberately altered by NASA and NOAA scientists in a politically-motivated attempt to rewrite history and claim global warming is causing U.S. temperatures to trend upward. The data actually show that we are in a cooling trend, not a warming trend (see charts below).

Beyond Obama’s Plan: A New Economic Vision for Addressing Climate Change

Missing from the climate change debate is an economic vision that can transition the US/global economy out of carbon-based energy and into renewable energies, while simultaneously increasing productivity and reducing the amount of the earth’s resources used in the economic process.

Jane Goodall: Governments Must Challenge Fossil Fuel Corporations

Jane Goodall has stressed the need for governments to challenge the fossil fuel industry in order to confront the climate crisis. The “window of time” left to act on the climate crisis requires individual action, the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace said. But politicians must act as well, and that means “governments standing up to the big corporations, the oil and gas industry.”
