Paul Driessen, senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: CNN recently hosted a seven-hour climate bore-athon. That climate cataclysms are real and already devastating our planet was not open to discussion. So host Wolf Blitzer and ten Democrat presidential contenders vied to make the most extravagant claims about how bad things are, and who would spend the most taxpayer money and impose the most Green New Deal rules to restrict our freedoms and transform our energy, economy, agriculture and transportation, in the name of preventing further cataclysms.
Michael Shellenberger, Founder - President of Environmental Progress: Bernie Sanders is determined to have his state, Vermont, and all of America stop using nuclear. He uses his own facts about wind and solar energy and biomass fuels. Michael Shellenberger does an excellent job of presenting the facts and the truth about energy and the environment.

Robert Bryce, author of “Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper,” captures the headlong rush of Western culture’s endless drive for ever better technology. It is an extraordinary impulse that has created a world in which more people live longer and more comfortably than ever before.

He contends that the pantheon of environmentalists like Mr. Gore, Bill McKibben, Amory Lovins and Greenpeace are wildly optimistic in their extravagant hopes for wind power, solar cells and biofuels.
