On January 24, Chuck Todd went on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and was asked about his announcement on a recent episode of Meet the Press, (which was devoted entirely to climate change), to bar guests who dispute climate alarmism. I think we at the Competitive Enterprise Institute may have spurred the question. Earlier that week, CEI launched a campaign challenging the decision with full-page ads in The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post (see the ads at cei.org/NBCclimatedebate).

A substance that “belongs to a class of chemicals developed as a nerve gas made by Nazi Germany is now found in food, air and drinking water,” thanks to President Donald Trump according to an article found online. This “neurotoxin” is in “same chemical family as sarin nerve gas,” which has been used as a chemical weapon in Syria, notes another writer.

Last week, The Washington Post published a story profiling the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), the head of CEI’s Center for Energy and Environment Myron Ebell, and the Cooler Heads Coalition. Cooler Heads is an ad-hoc coalition chaired by Ebell that counters unscientific claims from global warming alarmists and energy-rationing schemes that imperil America’s affordable energy sources and our economy.

This past week, President Trump issued a sweeping executive order unraveling a host of energy regulations enacted by President Obama. Predictably the news media were beside themselves over the matter. As my colleagues at Newsbusters adroitly pointed out, ABC, CBS, and NBC were in full panic mode. 

Media outlets hyped former vice president Al Gore’s recent meeting with President-Elect Donald Trump. Since becoming a full time climate alarmist Gore has earned wealth and the accolades of the liberal news and entertainment media. His slideshow turned him into the “darling of Hollywood” according to the news media.

RESTON, VA – The Media Research Center (MRC) announces the launch of its new documentary titled, Collateral Damage: Forgotten Casualties of the Left’s War on Coal. Several organizations, including, ATR, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Cornwall Alliance, E&E Legal, and The Heartland Institute, have joined the MRC’s effort to tell the story the liberal media won’t tell.


New York State’s Department of Labor recently made headlines with its rules mandating that employers paying their workforces with prepaid debit cards ensure that employees have “unlimited, free withdrawals” from at least one nearby ATM. This must be the case even if the employees have no bank accounts.


If government regulation was literally made of red tape, adhesive manufacturers would be making a killing in the Obama economy.

Yesterday the Wall Street Journal editorial board noted how the president is a "Regulator Without Peer," citing analysis by Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, who has a forthcoming annual review of federal regs, "Ten Thousand Commandments" slated to be unveiled on April 29 [click here for the 2013 study]. Read an excerpt of the WSJ's editorial below the page break, and leave us your thoughts on this or anything else on your mind in the comments thread (emphasis mine):

The heck with 3:00 AM ads cautioning Americans about who's more qualified to be in the White House answering fictitious emergency phone calls.

What this country really needs is a national television campaign warning folks about the dangers inherent in global warming policies advocated by Nobel Laureate Al Gore.

Just in the nick of time, the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute announced Tuesday the release of an ad destined to thrill climate realists around the world:
