Science Will Save Us by Shrinking Us Down to the Size of a Chicken

“We’ve got to accelerate the transition away from dirty energy. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future especially in communities that rely on fossil fuels. That’s why I’m going to push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose […]

Liberals and Establishment Republicans Sad to See Lindsey Graham Go

In case you missed it, and it was easy to do, Lindsey Graham has pulled out of the race to become our next president. I’m sure it was a difficult decision, being that he was beginning to pick up momentum. He was after all, gaining in the polls – at last I checked, he had […]

Glaciers More Important to Obama than Border Security

Back in September, Barack Obama made a highly publicized visit to Alaska. According to WhiteHouse.gov, the reason for his trip was: “President Obama traveled to Alaska to shine a spotlight on what Alaskans in particular have come to know: Climate change is one of the biggest threats we face, it is being driven by human activity, and […]

Paris Climate Agreement: No Change for Earth, Big Change for Economy

So at the end of all the hot air about the Paris climate conference, the bill is an estimated $1.5 trillion annually for an optimistic effect on the climate of maybe -0.170 degrees Celsius at the end of the century. That’s the upbeat scenario by Bjorn Lumborg and the Copenhagen Consensus Center. The pessimistic scenario […]

Marco Rubio Destroys Obama’s Climate Change Hysteria

During a campaign event, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) hit a homerun when he answered a question from the crowd about President Obama’s Climate Change agenda. The questioner wanted to know if Senator Rubio believed that we could “tax our way to lower emissions”? Of course Rubio said “no,” but he went even further showing how […]

Obama Knocks on WWIII’s Door, Talks About Climate Change

I beg to differ with President Obama. Climate change is not the most serious threat faced by this planet. He is. Let me back up a bit. We all know that Obama is touring the world this week touting climate change because he wants to finally pay back all the wealthy people who have financed […]

Climate Change Summit Key to Obama’s Terrorism Fighting Strategy

It’s not news that President Obama and the people in his Administration are out of touch, but every once in a while, they will exceed even the most cynical expectations. The Paris climate change summit evidently is one of those moments. On Sunday, Obama said that the climate change summit would send a message to the […]

Luxury Tax History Repeating Itself: What Will John Kerry Do?

Since 2008, tens of thousands of coal related jobs have been lost. As hundreds of coal plants have been closed, it is not just miners who are affected. As power plants close, all employees lose their jobs. Blue collar and white collar employees get the ax — managers, technicians, secretaries — everyone. But that’s not […]

Climate Change Denier Silenced for Doing Climate Science and Disagreeing with the Science

How many times have scientists brought up the Galileo Affair as an example of how scientists have been persecuted because of a disagreement over ideology? every school textbook has at least a few pages on how Galileo challenged the “settled science” of the day. He is a science saint. How times have changed. To question any […]

It’s Legacy Time for Obama

The two issues that are shaping up as President Obama’s last major actions in office will likely completely cut out Congress, giving America’s once-vaunted Constitution a final kick in the pants. Assuming that his jokey talk about a third term was just that — a joke — then Syria and global warming seem like they […]

Water Company Makes Lake Disappear Overnight, Blames Drought

In the shadowy world of government, it has occasionally happened that files disappear, tapes get erased, even occasionally an inconvenient person vanishes as he gets reassigned to Ice Station Zebra. But making an entire lake disappear overnight is pretty impressive. That apparently is what happened to Mountain Meadows Reservoir in Lassen County, California, which is owned […]

It’s a Mixed Bag at Best With Pope Francis

“Flee the temptation of narcissism,” Pope Francis said yesterday during his first U.S. visit. Now if he had directed those words to President Obama I would have said he hit a home run. But instead he directed them to a group of bishops he gently admonished to not be shy about welcoming immigrants, whom he […]
