Obama’s regulatory tailspin has been repealed

Obama’s signed a flurry of 11th-hour regulations.

President Barack Obama’s last few months in office were pretty hard on America. On a mission to cement his legacy, he set out on a final regulatory onslaught to expand the size of government dramatically.

Warmist ABC Admits: Can’t List Any Sceptical Reports

After years of hearing only the alarmist view on the warmist ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), a listener put in an FOI request.

He asks:

The document I seek is a list of links to articles related to “global warming”, “climate change”, “CO2” and “coral bleaching” that represent the sceptical view of those respective debates – as presented by the ABC on all its platforms.

I have listened, viewed and searched for years and I’ve not found any sceptical articles on the ABC’s platforms.
