Milloy: Don’t Cheer Lower Emissions, Which Are Being Caused by a Bad Economy

The problem is Obama domestic policies have impeded recovery from the 2009 recession and all-but stopped economic growth. The effect of this in the energy sector is being felt by all players. Utilities can’t sell more electricity and are becoming more reliant on government subsidies and regulatory schemes to maintain profitability.

Today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) effort to limit certain power plant emissions -- saying the agency 'unreasonably' failed to consider the cost of the …

Milloy: Stop the Money to Kill the Climate Treaty

Far from its goal of being able to distribute $100 billion per year, rich country pledges to the GCF so far amount to a paltry $10 billion. Worse, actual signed agreements to fund the GCF only amount to $5.47 billion as of the end of May.

Smoke rises from the chimney at NRG Energy's Joliet Station power plant on May 7, 2015 in Joliet, Illinois. According to scientists, global carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have reached a new monthly record of 400 parts per million, levels that haven't been seen for about two million years. The Environmental …

Harvard, Syracuse Researchers Caught Lying to Boost Obama Climate Rules

Are we to believe that a group of researchers who had previously received some $45 million in grants from EPA, no doubt hoping for more in the future, could possibly not have any dog in this fight? It’s probably not necessary to ask how this slipped past the incurious mainstream media.
