You are using http. Treehouse stopped using http for security reasons a while ago. so change http to https and it should now work.

var http = require("https"); //Change to https here

//Below change to https.get and in your url use https instead of http
var request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response){
    var responseBody = "";

    response.on("data", function(dataChunk) {

    });

    response.on("", function(){
        console.log(responseBody);
    });

});

request.on("error", function(error){
    console.error(error.message);
});
