You're often told 97% of scientists believe global warming is happening and it's our fault. Well, this statement is a lie and Christopher Monckton will show you why.

When Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth, the world went into a global warming hysteria. Twelve years later, much of the world has spotted the ruse, but some still proclaim that fossil fuels will doom mankind. Dr. Jay Lehr highlights a specific moment in Gore’s film and dismantles the shockingly false claims.

Dr. Patrick Moore Ph.D. was one of the co-founders of Greenpeace. After 15 years, he determined the organization had become "anti-human" and had to leave. You can watch the entire speech by Dr. Moore at Heartland's Ninth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC-9) at this link. It's fantastic: https://youtu.be/NtcNjoDe5Pg

Today, “fossil fuel” has become such a dirty word that even fossil fuel companies feel compelled to apologize for their products. In Fueling Freedom, energy experts Stephen Moore and Kathleen Hartnett White make an unapologetic case for fossil fuels, turning around progressives' protestations to prove that if fossil fuel energy is supplanted by “green” alternatives for political reasons, humanity will take a giant step backwards and the planet will be less safe, less clean, and less free.

NOTE: We had some minor issues with the live stream. To view the entire video, look here: https://youtu.be/RxFisOwA4l4 Fossil fuel energy is the lifeblood of the modern world. Before the Industrial Revolution, humanity depended on burning wood and candle wax. But with the ability to harness the energy in oil and other fossil fuels, quality of life and capacity for progress increased exponentially. Thanks to incredible innovations in the energy industry, fossil fuels are as promising, safe, and clean an energy resource as has ever existed in history. Yet, highly politicized climate policies are pushing a grand-scale shift to unreliable, impractical, incredibly expensive, and far less efficient energy sources. Today, “fossil fuel” has become such a dirty word that even fossil fuel companies feel compelled to apologize for their products.

In the final video of the Fracking Facts series, Heartland research fellow Isaac Orr makes a strong economic case for hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. Calls to ban fracking are based on myths and misinformation regarding the environmental and health impacts of fracking. In 2015, NY State Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) fell susceptible to these falsities, becoming the first and only governor to ban the technology. He completely dismissed the economic prosperity that the fracking industry would have spurred in his state, especially in the rural communities. Juxtapose the lack of opportunities in New York to the abundance of opportunities in neighboring state, Pennsylvania. Like the Empire State, Pennsylvania is naturally rich in natural gas reserves. It has embraced the fracking revolution and, because so, has experienced an economic boom. Hydraulic fracturing is reducing our carbon dioxide emissions, revitalizing local communities, and putting Americans to work in living-wage jobs.
