Climate change alarmism cooling off

Another frantic effort to redistribute wealth from developed nations to developing nations is under way, this time in Durban, South Africa. The excuse is the same old, tiresome claim that socialism writ large is necessary to save the planet from global warming. Fewer people are fooled every year the United Nations brings together representatives of […]

Climate change no excuse for tyranny

Kent McManigal You are being lied to about global warming. By both sides. Of course, it’s no longer called global warming, but “anthropogenic global climate change,” to communicate the idea that the average global temperature might go up or go down in the short term, along with other climatic effects, and that human activities — […]

Debate would expose myths behind bill

Freedom New Mexico A fter his climate agenda was dealt a major setback by Republican victories in November, President Barack Obama said, “Cap-and-trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way.” Now his administration has announced its intention to skin the cat another way, despite questionable underlying science and […]

Unnecessary cap and trade bill averted

Freedom New Mexico The world can breathe a sigh of relief. Unnecessary economic destruction at the hands of climate zealots is likely to be averted at least another year.

Support lacks for proposed climate treaty

Freedom New Mexico At the U.N. “summit” on climate change this week, President Obama manfully tried to argue that the United States is doing more than it ever has to combat the allegedly catastrophic effects of human-induced climate change. Yet to judge by the response of other world leaders, it might as well have been […]

Climate change proposals based on faulty research

It’s likely a sign of desperation that national security is increasingly invoked as an excuse for waging war on global warming. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., says global warming will create “climate refugees” and bring international conflicts. The American military, the reasoning goes, will have to intervene in massive humanitarian efforts or with force. This echoes […]

Federal reports not reliable source

Climate change part of cycle

New Mexico lawmakers have asked constituents a series of questions. One is, “Do you think the current climate changes are man made?” Here are some answers: • Frank Dalton: “While man probably has influenced some climatic effects, I rather expect that most climatic change is the result of various cycles that research has certainly proven to exist. Some cycles […]

God is in control

Judges should uphold justice, not make policy

By Freedom New Mexico The federal courts are supposed to serve as impartial referees on questions of constitutionality, not as unelected policy-making boards or regulators. But at a time when almost every public policy dispute becomes a court case, many judges seem to have embraced their ersatz roles with gusto, further politicizing what should be […]

By Freedom New Mexico Former Vice President Al Gore, who says he “used to be the next president of the United States,” has won the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing scary half-truths, flat-out errors and politically inspired schemes about global warming.
