The media claims 2020 was a record hurricane season. Is there any truth behind this claim? No. 2020 continued a trend of less major hurricanes making landfall as seen over the last few decades.

As usual, Google promoted an alarmist climate article to the top of their search results. The article is titled "Climate change is devastating Central American coffee farms, spurring migration" and was printed in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. In reality, coffee production continuously sets record highs year after year, blowing a massive hole in Google's alarmist agenda.

The media hypes up climate change, leading people to believe that more and more people are dying of climate related deaths every year. This is simply not the case. In his peer-reviewed article, Bjørn Lomborg shows that climate related deaths are near-zero in the year 2020, striking a huge blow in the corporate media's narrative.

Bart Madden is the author of the book Free To Choose Medicine: Better Drugs Sooner at Lower Cost; a book that offers a compelling argument for the freedom of every patient, guided by the advice of his or her doctor, to make informed decisions about the use of not-yet-FDA-approved therapeutic drugs, that are in late stages of clinical testing. Mr. Madden is recently retired as a Managing Director of Credit Suisse/Holt after a career in money management and investment research that included the founding of Callard Madden & Associates. During his career, he developed the cash-flow return on investment (CFROI) valuation framework that is widely used today by money management firms worldwide. Mr. Madden is currently an independent researcher and a Senior Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA). His research has focused on the themes of knowledge building and wealth creation being able to exist simultaneously in businesses, and these themes are represented in his various books including - Value Creation Principles: The Pragmatic Theory of the Firm Begins with Purpose and Ends with Sustainable Capitalism, Wealth Creation: A Systems Mindset for Building and Investing in Businesses for the Long Term, and Reconstructing Your Worldview: The Four Core Beliefs You Need to Solve Complex Business Problems. Mr. Madden is a proponent of the application of systems thinking to public policy, and his work in public policy has resulted in the Free To Choose Medicine (http://freetochoosemedicine.com/) plan, which was originally developed in journal articles published in Regulation, Cancer Biotherapy & Radiopharmaceuticals, and Medical Hypotheses. Mr. Madden is passionate about the passage of a Free To Choose Medicine Act which would be a defining moment for Americans giving control of medical decisions back to individual patients and their doctors.

The American Geophysical Union wrongly claimed climate change is harming mental health. Their argument is that climate change is leading to increased drought which harms mental health. There are many flaws with this argument, predominantly being that climate change is not leading to increased drought.

Christina Herrin, government relations manager of health policy at The Heartland Institute, discusses the benefits of tele-health with Dr. Colin Banas.

Rolling Stone magazine recently put out an article claiming climate change ushered in the era of COVID. This is absolutely not the case. Common sense tells you that diseases like the common cold, flu, and COVID-19 are worse during dry winter months. The second spike of COVID even occurred during the winter!
