New WMO research concludes that “[t]here is a 50:50 chance of the annual[Read More...]

Dept. Of Energy Is Spending $2.5 Billion On Carbon Capture

The biggest lie of the millenium is that carbon is bad and it should be removed from the atmosphere. CO2 is essential to life, and especially to plant growth.
