  • The truest solution to climate change

    Recently, actor Leonardo Di Caprio spoke on the issue of climate change. Of course, being a staunch liberal, he basically advocated for policies that increase taxation and regulations to centralize government control. The libertarian in me cringes when rich Hollywood actors advocate for policies that increase the cost of living for people like my family. So …

  • The Case for Anthropogenic Climate Change

    Many libertarians, including otherwise serious scholars and men of letters, sound like empty-headed dolts when discussing scientific matters.  To redress this unfortunate deficiency, I want to talk about Global Warming, a subject scarcely (if ever) raised on pro-liberty websites.

  • Obama arrives in Copenhagen

  • Is it just me or is it getting cold in here?

    Barack Obama, that paragon of virtue. That saviour we elected to save us.  What has he done to answer the hopes of the American people? He has not only continued the Bush administration’s influx of troops to the Middle East and proposed to fund abortion with taxpayers’ money, now he is also pushing for climate …
