Beating Environmental Extremists at Their Own Game

Imagine an organization well versed in science, engineering, and economics, that could beat environmental extremists at their own game. A group that would actively engage students on campuses across America to promote free-market principles and sound environmentalism. An entity that would directly confront climate alarmist group-think right inside UN conferences around the world. A group that would organize and run high-profile stunts, even parachuting into the enemy’s camp with banners proclaiming truths that mainstream media hide from the public. 

Wouldn’t it be a refreshing change if such bold and outspoken actions were taken by an organization that actually knew what they were talking about, instead of the same tired, misguided environmental campaigners who so often dominate the headlines?

Well, such a group does indeed exist—the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, better known as CFACT.org—and we will interview CFACT’s dynamic president Craig Rucker on our radio show The Other Side of the Story to be broadcast on February 6, and 7 at 11 am and 8 pm Eastern Time. 

CFACT was founded in 1985 by David Rothbard and Craig Rucker to promote a positive voice on environment, energy, and world development issues. Primarily funded by private citizens across the U.S. (they have never sought or received money from governments), CFACT believes that the power of the free-market system, combined with the applications of safe technologies, could offer humanity the best, most practical solutions to many of the world’s pressing concerns. A number of leading scientists, academics, and policy leaders soon joined their effort, along with thousands of citizens from across the country.

Today, this Washington D.C.-based group is highly respected, and its voice can be heard relentlessly infusing the environmental debate with a balanced perspective on environmental stewardship. With an influential and impressive scientific advisory board, an aggressive CFACT “Collegians” program, United Nations representation, internet and social media presence, Adopt-A-Village project, and the Climate Depot news and information service, CFACT offer genuinely positive solutions to today’s global challenges. Climate Depot, led by CFACT’s irrepressible Director of Communications, Marc Morano, a veteran of intense climate debates around the world, is truly the “go-to” source for the latest in climate realist news. Marc played King Louis (still from the film above) in CFACT’s superb 2020 documentary film, Climate Hustle 2: Rise of the Climate Monarchy.”

Not surprisingly, the organization has been termed “invaluable” by the Arizona Republic. It has been lauded for its “effort to bring sound science to the environmental debate” by a former president of the National Academy of Sciences, and it has been praised by a respected Boston Globe columnist for “a record of supplying absolutely solid information.”

At the heart of CFACT’s mission is the goal “to enhance the fruitfulness of the Earth and all of its inhabitants.” The Committee accomplishes this through four main strategies:

  1. Prospering Lives. CFACT works to help people find better ways to provide for food, water, energy, and other essential human services.
  2. Promoting Progress. CFACT advocates the use of safe, affordable technologies and the pursuit of economic policies that reduce pollution and waste and maximize the use of resources.
  3. Protecting the Earth. CFACT helps protect the Earth through wise stewardship of the land and its wildlife.
  4. Providing Education. CFACT educates various sectors of the public about important facts and practical solutions regarding environmental concerns.

Every weekday at cfact.org, you will see up to a dozen original essays posted by some of the world’s leading scientists and educators on topics, including those listed below. Long before we began our work for America Out Loud and the International Climate Science Coalition, we kept ourselves informed of the latest in sensible science-based policy via the pages of cfact.org.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…
