Remember how the most recent IPCC report was supposed to represent the current, unified thought from scientists on global climate change, except for a few flaky unlearned dissenters? Here are a a few of those dissenters. They are every bit as credentialed as any other scientist working in the fields relted to climate change and […]

I loves me some Glenn Beck. He’s as humble a talk-show host as you’re ever likely to find and pretty darned smart besides. And he knows how to do a withering takedown without getting all red-faced and pompous. Awwwwwwwww yeah!

It looks like the story about Al Gore’s Carbon Casa has hit a nerve. Witness this outporing of reasoned argument and refutation of fact from the HuffPuff. Actually, let’s start with a more basic question. Who are these people? Well , a quick check of Alexa reveals their web site gets no traffic. Are they […]

Man….what? SALT LAKE CITY — While Mitt Romney condemns polygamy and its prior practice by his Mormon church, the Republican presidential candidate’s great-grandfather had five wives and at least one of his great-great grandfathers had 12. Polygamy was not just a historical footnote, but a prominent element in the family tree of the former Massachusetts […]

Richard Cohen's Alternate Reality

Richard Cohen's Alternate Reality

Richard Cohen is obviously living on some alternate-reality Earth. Here’s how the world looks from his world. Now, somebody ought to make a movie about Al Gore. I would call it “An Uncomplaining Life.” The movie would be about a man who did not quit, who came off the canvas after a painfully close election […]

Apparently, the press release I noted in this post got Al Gore’s attention. He responded to the blog Think Progress who characterizes Drudge’s headline as an “attack” and a “smear”. Here, first, is Drudge’s headline: “POWER: GORE MANSION USES 20X AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD; CONSUMPTION INCREASE AFTER ‘TRUTH’” I’m sorry, folks, but you’re really bending the definition […]

Meanwhile, Iran is still steadily running weapons into Iraq to kill American soldiers. Ah but we don’t dare talk mean to Iran. After all, we don’t have ironclad proof that it’s the autocratic tyrants in Iran who are behind all this. After all, it could be some other group of America-hating Iranian Islamists.

And we should listen to Al Gore, why, exactly? [Al] Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES). In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve […]

UN Failed to Convict in Srebrenica Genocide

This is a terrible story. THE HAGUE, Netherlands – The United Nations’ highest court on Monday exonerated Serbia of direct responsibility for the mass slaughter of Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica during the 1992-95 Bosnia war, but ruled that it failed to prevent genocide. The International Court of Justice said Serbia also failed to comply with […]
