Opinion | How a Physicist Became a Climate Truth Teller

Opinion | How a Physicist Became a Climate Truth Teller

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByBarack Obama is one of many who have declared an “epistemological crisis,” in which our society is losing its handle on something called truth.Thus an interesting experiment will be his and other Democrats’ response to a book by Steven Koonin, who was chief scientist of the Obama Energy Department. Mr. Koonin argues not against current climate science but that what the media and politicians and activists say about climate science has drifted so far out of touch with the actual science as to be absurdly, demonstrably false.This is not an altogether...

Opinion | Like 2016, 2020 Isn’t Going Away

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchBy“Trump didn’t believe his election lies,” went a headline at the respectable news and commentary site Slate.com.I was arrested by this statement of the obvious.Politics is a strategy game, like war or litigation: The truth gets spoken only if it’s useful. I doubt legions of Democratic elders believed the guff about Donald Trump being a Russian plant. Millions of voters see politics as nonstop mendacity. Even to many nonsupporters, the difference between Mr. Trump and his enemies was the difference between night and night. Mr. Trump once touted his own...

Opinion | H.R.1 Is Democrats’ Survival Strategy for 2022

Opinion | H.R.1 Is Democrats’ Survival Strategy for 2022

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByDonald Trump and Stacey Abrams advocate different election reforms and might as well be the same person, both having discovered the personal benefit of alleging their respective elections were stolen from them. Under the Democratic bill H.R.1, expect a lot more Donald Trumps and Stacey Abramses.Some say we should calm down about the proposed sweeping changes because academic research shows that electoral tweaks, in the end, don’t confer lasting partisan advantage. This misses a key wrinkle. In a duopoly market, the parties (which are basically marketing...

Opinion | The Immigration Unpresident

Opinion | The Immigration Unpresident

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByPresident Biden is not throwing away Donald Trump’s immigration policy. He’s throwing away the border policy of every president since Bill Clinton. When the early 1990s dawned so did the realization behind what became known as “prevention through deterrence”—the U.S. may not be able to control its border but it can influence the incentives of those who seek to cross.Experiments in the McAllen and El Paso sectors showed that beefed-up surveillance in urbanized border areas could curtail crossers then habituated to exploiting border-officer downtime or the...

Opinion | Wuhan Lab Theory a Dark Cloud on China

Opinion | Wuhan Lab Theory a Dark Cloud on China

Skip to Main ContentSkip to SearchByA lab accident in Wuhan is unlikely only in the sense that a pandemic virus’s emergence is always the culmination of a series of unlikely events. If it weren’t, we wouldn’t be here as a species.This trillion-to-one collision of circumstances can be simplified in one obvious way. Say, if a human agent collected the most dangerous viruses to study them in the middle of one of the densest population centers on earth. These experimenters would at least have been alert, if all other precautions failed, to a coworker developing unexplained symptoms. Except that...

MenuIs Democracy About to Die in Darkness?Democrats in the House of Representatives are calling open season on the First Amendment.Editor's PicksSign Up to receiveHot OffThe PressashingtonWe are all supposed to be against conspiracies. Yet what about a conspiracy to silence free speech? What about a conspiracy to shut down people who utter thoughts we disagree with? What about silencing communists? What about silencing Nazis? What about a conspiracy to silence Democrats or Republicans? What about silencing those who spout Trumpism? There are a lot of positions that I disagree with. There...

If it’s Broke, Fix it

If it’s Broke, Fix it

For media inquiries, contact:Download“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So goes the old adage. Its corollary, however, is equally important, particularly to U.S. governance and its constant reinventions over the past almost 250 years: If it is broken, do fix it. That principle has guided the American experiment from the earliest days of the Republic through the Civil War and its aftermath, cycles of depression and recovery, grievous domestic and foreign policy blunders and atrocities, and alternating progress and triumphs.When it comes to federal government ethics and the rule of law, a...

Opinion | EVs Are the Lowest Climate Priority

Opinion | EVs Are the Lowest Climate Priority

Skip to Main ContentSkip to Searchhttps://www.wsj.com/articles/evs-are-the-lowest-climate-priority-11612912722ByThe Joe Biden administration will be piling a lot of chips on electric cars, the most popular and least useful way of fighting climate change. How much do the cars you and I drive actually contribute to emissions?Don’t ask the Union of Concerned Scientists, an EV promoter habituated to quickly changing the subject to “transportation” emissions. Many inventories also ignore the full range of greenhouse emissions, focusing on CO2 to foster a nevertheless-untenable illusion that...

We’re rewriting the most important educational test you’ve never heard of

We’re rewriting the most important educational test you’ve never heard of

✕Thousands of fourth and eighth graders have just completed a pivotal test that few Americans know anything about: the  (NAEP), also called the “Nation’s Report Card.” How they fared in reading and math will yield the most definitive data about learning losses caused by COVID-forced school shutdowns. NAEP is also how we gauge achievement gaps between student groups and whether they’re widening or narrowing over time. It’s how we know whether kids in Maryland are doing better or worse in key subjects than their peers in Virginia and Washington,...
