Brace yourself: Green justice warriors will be out in force this Sunday. It’s the 48th anniversary of Earth Day.

Every year since 1970, we have been treated to self-righteous, humanity-deriding antics of environmental activists . . . who usually leave mountains of garbage behind after their celebrations of Earth conclude.

President Donald Trump’s administration has already implemented nearly two-thirds of the 334 agenda according to the conservative Heritage Foundation, which is a pace faster than former President Ronald Reagan.

One of Trump’s biggest promises was to roll back regulations, especially those promulgated under the behemoth of the Environmental Protection Agency. New reports...

California’s politicians claim they want to stop pollution, but it appears the bureaucrats who actually implement the regulations our representatives promulgate have different priorities.

Until the prof sent me this story, I had never heard of a pangolin, and my initial impression (as a Southerner) was that it looks like a giant armadillo.  The pangolin, however, is an anteater that is currently endangered because its scales are seen as medicinal and its meat a delicacy...

First, it was a tiny fish over human jobs and food production, and now it’s an endangered butterfly over national security.

Environmentalists have filed a lawsuit against the DOJ, hoping to stop the building of President Trump’s long-promised border way because endangered butterflies can’t fly high enough to follow their migration patterns.

The new year has certainly started with a blast…of arctic air.

From Maine to Florida, Americans are trying to fight off the effects of a “bomb cyclone”. The term has an interesting history, originating in the era of World War II meteorology.

Have you ever wondered why bottled water became so popular?

Prior to 1989, only posh brands such as Evian were available. Then in 1989, a polymer called polyethylene terephthalate (PET) made the packaging lightweight, durable and inexpensive. Thus a craze was born.

Eco-activists enamored by alternative energy technology have long touted the potential for wind farms as a source of power.
