Science Hangs Its Head in Shame

Science Hangs Its Head in Shame

If this story gets any traction at all it could become the scientific scandal of the century, if not of all time. I know that sounds like crazy-eyed hyperbole, so judge it for yourself. The University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit was hacked recently (though there are strong suggestions that it was an inside […]

Will Copenhagen Say “Skoal!” to Obama, If He Doesn’t Bring Home an Agreement?

For those of you either hoping or fearing that the President would walk away from the Copenhagen summit with a real global warming agreement in his green little hands just remember this is Barack Obama we’re talking about. Barack Obama conceded on Sunday that next month’s Copenhagen summit would not produce a legally binding agreement […]

To heck with global warming. If the Chicken Littles among us really want something to panic about, they should worry about burrowing black holes! As if they weren’t considered beastly enough, black holes can dive into nearby stars and devour them from the inside out, scientists now suggest. Such invasions by such black holes could […]

Inevitably, the battle for progressive utopia comes down to controlling the population. LONDON (Reuters) – Contraception advice is crucial to poor countries’ battle with climate change, and policy makers are failing their people if they continue to shy away from the issue, a leading family planning expert said on Friday. Leo Bryant, a lead researcher […]

It’s a shame that climate modeling has turned out to be almost completely wrong. Otherwise, we could perhaps excuse the global warming cult’s rampant hypocrisy. Great Britain has a supercomputer with 15 million megabytes of memory. It can do 1,000 billion, or a trillion, calculations a second. They use it to predict the weather, and […]

I’m fairly sure this is not a bug, but a feature. The House-passed climate change bill, if enacted, would expand the federal government so much that it would take billions of dollars and thousands of new employees to implement. Now-obscure federal agencies such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission […]

How does New York Times columnist and member in good standing of the Church of Global Warming Thomas Friedman live his message of global warming alarmism? I can’t say, exactly, but it apparently requires a humongous house with a huge pool spread out on lots of cleared land. And his buildings all have slate-grey roofs! […]

Here’s an interesting interview with Australian geologist Ian Plimer whose new book Heaven and Earth takes on the Cult of Global Warming and with hard facts and without fear. This is what Plimer about why his work gives him the authority to speak about global warming: ‘I’m a natural scientist. I’m out there every day, […]

I think I prefer my big-government propaganda posters in the original Russian, though I commend The Anchoress for trying to capture the spirit in subsequent attempts. This one, on the other hand, has a certain flair to it.

My latest post is up at AIP. The subject is cap and trade and what the real motivation is for such an unprecedented power grab. Well, crud. I gave it away already. The question I keep asking myself, though, is why? Why are the Democrats so determined to shove through a bill their own supporters […]
