Chennai, India’s Cold Winter vs. Global Warming Hype

By Vijay Jayaraj -- March 21, 2018 4 Comments

“Why do developing countries like India fear calling out the climate myth? Because doing so would risk international trade relations by challenging the European economic powerhouses that are vehemently opposed to any country that leaves the Paris accord. In fact, the European Union’s new Brussels policy stipulates that the EU will not sign trade pacts with any country that does not ratify the Paris agreement.”

While many climate alarmists call for India to cut down its dependence on coal, fearing that carbon dioxide emissions will cause a climate apocalypse, real-world temperatures—local, regional, and global—suggest otherwise.

Chennai—a southern Indian city that is home to more than 10 million people—has recorded its coldest winter in 5 years.


Chennai is the administrative capital of Tamil Nadu state and serves as a trade and financial hub of south India.…

U.S. and India: Deeper Ties Towards Energy Abundance

By Vijay Jayaraj -- October 25, 2017 2 Comments

“India’s chief economic adviser Arvind Subramanian has declared that India will fight against the ‘carbon imperialism’ being imposed on it. He affirmed the country’s plans to promote clean coal and suggested the development of a global coal alliance that can counter the renewable push by climate alarmists.”

India and the U.S. are about to deepen their economic ties—thanks to a government that supports free trade and conventional energy sources. A tradition continues: This year marks the 70th anniversary of the U.S.-India partnership—a partnership that began in 1947 when President Harry S. Truman welcomed Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

Speaking at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies, Washington, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that the U.S.-India partnership is set to get stronger in the next four years.…

Back to Climate Science: Obama’s EPA ‘Endangerment’ Finding Under Legal Review (TPPF plays offense re the green greenhouse gas)

By Robert Bradley Jr. -- May 4, 2017 5 Comments

“In its rush to regulate greenhouse gases in 2009, the Obama Administration missed an important step. It utterly failed to submit the greenhouse gas endangerment finding to the Science Advisory Board for peer review, as required by statute, and that violation is fatal to the endangerment finding.”

– Robert Henneke, director, Center for the American Future. Texas Public Policy Foundation Press Release. May 2, 2017

It is time to play offense. Legal issues aside, numerous lines of evidence have come together to strengthen the intellectual case that the increasing atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) is a net planetary benefit, or a positive externality in the jargon of economics.

This week, the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF) filed a petition with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency challenging the EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding designating man-made greenhouse gas emissions as a danger to human health.…

Hero or Villain: The Myth of Harmful CO2

By Vijay Jayaraj -- December 22, 2016 19 Comments

Radical environmentalists have misled people about the green greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide. The indoctrination of school curricula, the ignorance of the public, and the well-crafted lies of the radical environmentalists have wrongly demonized CO2.”

Today, some people portray carbon dioxide (CO2) as an enemy of the earth. We hear negative things about it in almost every aspect of life, including in schools, TV shows, and the mainstream media.

But is CO2 really a villain?

I was a little kid when I first came to know that in photosynthesis plants inhale CO2 and exhale oxygen. I also understood why plants shrivel and die with too little of it but grow better and better as CO2 levels rise. That’s why CO2 is not a pollutant.
