Adam Weinstein and His Neo-Nazi Propaganda Machine

“Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.” –President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address, 1961 I know. I’m going to get letters. “We don’t reference Nazis, William.” Yeah,…

How is Obama’s Julia Like Pristomyrmex Punctatus?

Before I answer that, a little science. Scientists study all kinds of things. One thing they study is ants, because ants teach a lot about communities. In a recent study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, ecologists Shigeto Dobata and Kazuki Tsuji studied the effects of “cheaters” in a colony of Pristomyrmex Punctatus ants. P. Punctati segment their…

Why GOP Pandering to Young Voters Backfires

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…

Italy Erases 600 years of Scientific Progress

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…

Astonishing Science: Sun May Cause Global Warming

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,…

I’ll Say It Again: James Hansen Is a Fraud and a Liar

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…

So Much For an Ice-Free Arctic

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…

Gloriously Goring Gore

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,…

A Bunch of Hooey

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…

Predictions for 2009

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,…

Global Warming Disproved!?

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…
