Don’t “Do Something” about Climate Change

by Harrison H. Schmitt Americans should think long and hard about their children’s future before giving up liberties and incomes to politicians in Washington and at the United Nations in the name of “doing something” about climate change.

President and Congress Stagnate Economy with Unconstitutional Actions

by Harrison H. Schmitt The provisions of the Constitution of the United States contain everything necessary to perpetuate liberty and provide economic prosperity in the American Republic. Again, the Founders got it right – their politically myopic heirs in the 21st Century have not. Unconstitutional interference in the mortgage market place brought the U.S. economy…

Open Letter to the Chancellor of Germany by 130 Scientists

Here are the key points in the German letter: Information known before the IPCC was founded shows that human CO2 emissions have no measurable effect on global warming. The atmosphere has not warmed in the last 10 years and has cooled significantly since 2003. The expensive IPCC climate models predicted steady warming but the opposite…

Klaus: The problem is the majority of rational people do not pay attention

by Vaclav Klaus Climate Forum, Kongresshotel Seepark, Thun, Switzerland, October 9, 2008: Current priorities do not fall from the sky. They reflect our way of looking at things, “die Weltanschauung”, which characterizes our era. Its formation started decades ago. I see it in the culture, philosophy and ideology of the 1960s and 1970s which in…

Klaus: What is Endangered? Climate or Freedom?

by Vaclav Klaus My answer to this question is very clear and straightforward: “Endangered is freedom. Climate is OK.” After spending several years studying this issue I came to the conclusion we were deceived. The Great Global Warming Debate is not about temperature or CO2 levels. It is not a scientific dispute inside climatology. The…

Klaus: Global WARNing

Dr. Vaclav Klaus warns: Environmentalism as a metaphysical ideology and as a worldview has absolutely nothing to do with natural sciences or the climate itself. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with social sciences either. Environmentalism, not preservation of nature (and of environment), is a leftist ideology. Environmentalism is a vehicle for bringing socialist government…
