If you were standing outside could you tell the difference between 58.46ºF and 58.45ºF? After the Obama administration made splashing headlines with their announcement of 2014 being the hottest year on record in the past 135 years, climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels is asking the question above. He quickly answers his own question saying NO, you …

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? “Who will guard the guardians?” It takes years to get an Amendment to the Constitution passed. The last grand attempt was the Equal Rights Amendment, and it failed even though the amount of time for its passage was extended. Amendments no longer matter. A president can send a memorandum, sign an …

Buried deep in the archives of The New York Times is an article about termites. We have a hate-love relationship with the little creatures. We hate them because they can turn a house constructed from wood into saw dust without a homeowner ever knowing it. Watch a show like “Flip or Flop” on HGTV. It …

I was looking around the internet for one or more feel good stories as we head into Christmas. So I Googled “Feel Good Stories.” Several headings came up and I thought, okay, I have a lot to do so this will be easier than I thought to find at least one uplifting story to elaborate …

How’s the weather in your neck of the woods? Here in New England we’re freezing. It could be worse. We could be living in the Lakes region or Buffalo, New York, buried under several feet of snow, with more on the way. And winter is still over a month away. I was speaking with a …

The latest Democrat foible was to vote down the Keystone XL pipeline project. These nut jobs are so out of touch with political reality that they were willing to sacrifice a Louisiana Senate seat to the Republicans. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren wrote, “I oppose Keystone XL, an ill-conceived project locking us into further dependence on …

The more things change the more they stay the same. Ron Klain is President Obama’s Ebola Czar. In reality, he’s nothing more than a parrot for every leftist cause known to man. In the end, it’s about money. Every job he’s had has catapulted him up the economic ladder. It won’t be any different with …

The co-founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, has publicly challenged the world’s meteorologists and other scientists by writing an open letter to UCLA stating that the concept of man-made global warming is false. They’re probably going to ignore him. “There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in …

The Chicken Little brain trust at the Obama Administration was working overtime last week as Secretary of State John Kerry promised an audience that “life as you know it” on planet Earth will come to an end if the people of the world don’t accept government’s plans for fighting nature. Kerry’s speech clearly had nothing to do …

Call it Kentucky fried irony. An Oakland-based “green energy” company has abandoned plans to complete a 75-story solar energy tower in California’s Joshua Tree National Park because rays emanating from a nearly identical facility have been exploding the local wildlife. Seriously. Birds that fly into the path of concentrated solar beams can be instantly fried alive. A similar …

One of the arguments for new environmental laws is that the people most affected by man-made global warming are the poor. Not only is the science behind such claims of man-made global warming questionable, but any new laws will have a negative effect on the poor. As governments consider far-reaching, costly policies to mitigate human …

On August 6, Sec. John Kerry exclaimed in Honolulu that our biggest challenge is terrorism, Ebola, Russia, China, a moribund economy, climate change! Yes climate change is the “biggest challenge we face right now,” so said Kerry as he boarded his government 757 jet and flew off to his next destination. CFACT reported that, in …
