We’ve already written on how high fuel and food prices prove that the Democrat’s global warming policies are having a resounding effect.

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Ann Coulter hits the Democrat nail right on the head.

Facts are pesky, annoying things.

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Never let petty facts get in the way of the big theory. Facts are such pesky, annoying things that it’s better to just ignore them.

Ridiculously Unrealistic = Not Serious

California’s Greenhouse Gas Experiment

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Given the global warming hot air coming out of all three presidential candidates, we may all thank California for getting a head-start on trying to curb greenhouse gases.

Ethanol Fools

Friday, April 11th, 2008
