Allan Savory caused the slaughter of 40,000 elephants in a vain attempt to save the planet by stopping desertification. It turns out that he succeeded only in turning lush grasslands into desert. And, of course, killing 40,000 elephants. Savory loves animals. He grew up in Africa and adores elephants. So why did he kill them? Scientists Often Do More Harm Than Good Global temperatures are higher now, on average, than they were 100 years ago.
Marco Rubio gave the Republican response to the State of the Union address for two reasons. First, Rubio’s Cuban, and the GOP wants to court Latinos. Second, Rubio’s relatively young, and the GOP wants to stop the bleeding when it comes to young voters. But there’s a fundamental problem with the Republican approach, and it stems from the GOP’s least favorite discipline: behavioral science. Young People Are Naturally Skeptical You hear about scams that target
The next time some liberal tells you the United States needs to act more like Europe, tell them, “no, we believe in science.” Italy sentenced six scientists to prison for the felony of failing to predict an earthquake. Seriously. The people who brought us da Vinci, Columbus, and Marconi believe that those wizards in lab coats with all the machines that go “beep” are actually gods who control the earth and the stars. Why not
Unbelievable! Scientists have discovered that the huge, glowing fireball in the sky may affect Earth’s temperature. The latest evidence comes from . . . the Moon. Back when we used to send astronauts to the Moon, we placed some temperature sensors on the Moon’s surface. We still monitor those sensors. Guess what they show. Yep, you’re right! As temperatures rose on Earth, temperatures rose on the Moon. Watts Up With That has all the details.
American Thinker Blog: Global Warm-mongering: More Silk from a Pig’s Ear It seems that NASA’s James Hansen, head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), is at it again. He just can’t let the data speak for itself. In yet another egregious display of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) arrogance, he changed the temperature data from 1910-2008 to reflect what is clearly a cooling trend to reflect a warming trend. (Y-axis = Annual Mean Temperatures
DailyTech – Sea Ice Ends Year at Same Level as 1979 Thanks to a rapid rebound in recent months, global sea ice levels now equal those seen 29 years ago, when the year 1979 also drew to a close. Let’s give credit where it’s due: Al Gore. When Al Gore speaks, the opposite happens. Where Al Gore goes, snow is sure to follow. So when Al Gore frightened a bunch of German kids by telling
The Huffington Post (of all things) brings us a most cogent, concise, and accurate repudiation of Al Gore and the whole "climate change" Nazi crowd (h/t ICECAP). Harold Ambler deserves the Nobel Prize for truth stating. Some highlights. Strike One: How Al Gore (and Hansen and the rest) lie to you about climate change: First, the expression "climate change" itself is a redundancy, and contains a lie. Climate has always changed, and always will. There
The silliness of companies knows no bounds. The latest act of corporate stupidity comes from the computer maker Dell. In its attempt to become the "greenest technology company on the planet," Dell made much of achieving some farcically theoretical "carbon-neutral" status. But, like everything associated with AGW, there’s really no so thing. WSJ points out in a wonderful examination today: In fact, that’s only a small fraction of all the emissions associated with Dell. The
After a 2 year hiatus from annual predictions, here’s what I see happening in the precarious Year of our Lord Two-thousand nine: The Dow: The Dow trades within a range of 1,000 points with a daily average closing of 8,500. GDP and Economy: By July, everyone pretty much calls the situation "Great Depression II." Unemployment, which declines in the first quarter, increases to more than 12 percent by fall. Gross Domestic Product by quarter: Q1:
Hey, folks, I haven’t read the whole thing. But in the second paragraph we seem to find the answer to whole global warming problem: ignore it. First, all over the world, temperatures have been dropping in a way wholly unpredicted by all those computer models which have been used as the main drivers of the scare. Last winter, as temperatures plummeted, many parts of the world had snowfalls on a scale not seen for decades.
