Such protests began in 2009, when regular Americans organized to protest federal fiscal policies, tax increases, and Obamacare. In fact, Professor Jacobson was recently treated to a...

During my family’s visit of Berlin, Germany yesterday, an American president was prominently featured as part of the tour we took.

Our guide spoke glowingly of a speech that he heard, and one which still resonates with him to this day.

As we passed the Bradenburg Gate, he quoted Ronald Reagan’s 1987 speech...

After California became the epicenter of a measles outbreak earlier this year, the state’s legislature proposed a tough, new bill making vaccinations for children attending public school mandatory (with few exceptions.)

Governor Jerry Brown just signed that bill into law.

Mark Twain once wrote that “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”

In the age of the internet, that saying should be updated to “three times around the world”, as is evidenced by the story behind the resignation of a British scientist.

One one hand, it is comforting to know President Obama can target the enemy and use American resources to counter it.

On the other hand, it is very disturbing when that enemy is . . . climate change.
