Find out the latest on the legal and scientific battle underway to save common sense and the American economy!

We have developed the SLF Global Warming Litigation Project to challenge the climate change alarmists and the Obama Administration's agenda for radical, costly regulation - based, as we maintain, on flawed science, political agendas, and the multi-billion dollar carbon trading giants waiting in the wings.

At stake are hundreds of billions of dollars that will come from your 401(k), show up in your energy bills, and will result in the loss of tens of thousands of American jobs. Al Gore’s profit-making enterprise – the selling of billions of dollars in so-called “carbon credits” – is based on fraudulent science and a politically driven environmental extremist agenda bent on destroying the American economy.

The climate change crisis is the single most dangerous domestic issue facingAmerica.  Visit our companion website to find out the latest on the legal and scientific fronts.

With the U.S. Senate taking a pass on climate and energy legislation before the election, all eyes are on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) efforts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. Besides the question of how regulation will broadside the U.S. economy, EPA's proposed regulations also raise an important legal question.
