Did you know that pollutants and estrogen from contraceptives are causing male fish in America to develop female sex organs? Or that ethanol, the liberals' favorite fuel, is destroying the world's rainforests? We hear about AIDS in Africa, but the number-one killer of children in Africa is malaria, and guess who banned the pesticide that used to have malaria under control? Iain Murray's expose reveals how environmental blowhards actually do more to waste energy, endanger species, and kill people than those they finger, while capitalism, hunting, and old-fashioned property rights have made the planet better. Rather than just myth busting and blame shifting, Murray offers applicable and effective solutions for each catastrophe-something the Left has yet to do.

Not exactly a Big Surprise -

But Exxon knew what they were doing all along.

"Exxon's Own Research Confirmed Fossil Fuels' Role in Global Warming Decades Ago

Top Exxon execs were warned of possible catastrophe from greenhouse effect, BY THEIR OWN SCIENTISTS, then led efforts to block solutions.

Remind you of the Big Tobacco/Cancer story at all? It should. Exxon hired some of the same spinmeisters that Big Tobacco used for years. Our library still carries some of their phony books. What a travesty!

Meanwhile, unlike Exxon's decades of flat-out lying, Shell Oil finally fessed up and is now asking for a sensible carbon tax to slow the rate of global warming.

“Ben van Beurden, the chief executive of Shell, has endorsed warnings that the world’s fossil fuel reserves cannot be burned unless some way is found to capture their carbon emissions.” This follows a call from six oil and gas companies (Shell included) to put a price on carbon.
