Ed Driscoll has an interesting post up today on the progressive penchant to identify everything as a crisis in order to gin up public sentiment for its various utopian programs. Before I get into that, though, let me pull out this utterly brilliant Thomas Sowell quote from Ed’s piece. There’s something Eric Hoffer said: “Intellectuals [...]

The science is unsettled. Research by hurricane scientists may force the UN’s climate panel to reconsider its claims that greenhouse gas emissions have caused an increase in the number of tropical storms. The benchmark report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said that a worldwide increase in hurricane-force storms since 1970 was probably [...]

We can take away three things from this post by by friend Paula. 1) Jay Inslee is a twit whose power has gone straight to his bloated head. 2) The only answer the Cult of Global Warming has to hard evidence that the globe is not warming is the same old progressive tactic of trotting [...]

Pity the poor glaciers of the Himalayas. For ten years, we’ve been told by the adherents of the Global Warming Cult, they have been slowly dying. Indeed, not just dying but being killed by our profligate and greedy CO2 emissions. The IPCC warned us that if we didn’t mend out ways now (and by “mending [...]

This story, if true, is a sign that Britain has fallen into a most pathetic state. Volunteers have reported that ‘a large number’ of elderly customers are snapping up hardbacks as cheap fuel for their fires and stoves. … Workers at one charity shop in Swansea, in south Wales, described how the most vulnerable shoppers [...]
