The Gospel of Gore

If Al Gore wore a high-collared black suit instead of a polo shirt and jeans to the Washington, D.C. Live Earth concert, he might have been mistaken for a preacher. He gave a brief sermon Saturday, July 7 on global warming with a solemn opening. “Today we are gathered on all seven continents and eight giant concerts and in 10,000 other gatherings, many as large as this one, two billion people, we are gathered, with one message.”

FreedomWorks Takes on the Greens Outside GE Shareholders Meeting

This Tuesday 50 FreedomWorks activists from the Greenville, South Carolina area protested outside the General Electric annual shareholders meeting. Our volunteers took the company to task for its involvement in The U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP), an organization that is calling for an economically harmful cap and trade system on emissions. FreedomWorks supports sound and reasonable energy policy, and knows that putting such caps in place would only hurt our economy and send more jobs overseas by making us less competitive globally.

A warm and Fuzzy Feeling

Yes, the world is getting warmer, but the Earth does this roughly every 1,500 years, and we cannot stop it. The good news is humans and most other species tend to do better during the warm periods.

Who's afraid of scientific methods?

People who consider themselves very rational argue that most disputes about what is true and what is not can be settled by calmly looking at the evidence and letting it guide them to the proper conclusion. However, many who claim to be adherents of the scientific method seem to lose their "scientific objectivity" in some of the great debates of the day.

Senate's Economic Horror Story?

With Halloween fast approaching, the Senate appears to be all tricks and no treats. Topping the list is the Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) proposal to cap carbon dioxide emissions. The “Climate Stewardship Act,” which was open for debate in the Senate on Thursday, October 29, seeks to address concerns about global warming. The problem is, the science behind global warming theory is far from complete, and the scientific community continues to identify uncertainties and problems with existing theories about global warming. On the other hand, the costs of measures such as the Lieberman-McCain proposal and the Kyoto Protocol are not inconsequential; passing such proposals is sure to be a trick, not a treat, for all consumers.
