climate change


Global Warming/Climate Change advocates claim that the debate is over. The science is settled. Debating the “science” behind the certainty of man-made Climate Change is like debating whether the earth is flat or round. So say supposedly 97 percent of all scientists. Rubbish. A similar no-debate claim was made in the 1970s about peak oil …

“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 …

Before you go to see your doctor, make sure you have purchased all the guns and ammo you think you’ll need. After some seemingly innocent probing about your lifestyle and beliefs, he or she may consider you to be a danger to yourself, your family, and others (mostly the liberal establishment). A slipshod diagnosis may …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

In a scenario chillingly reminiscent of the story about Galileo’s punishment for going against the scientific orthodoxy of his day, a Democratic senator and a posse of enraged climate scientists are looking to string up anyone who denies their vision of climate change. Not literally string them up, just criminalize them, investigate them, fine them, …

You may have noticed gas prices cratering again, which is great news for individual consumers, but another bad sign for the overall economy. As much as I like filling up for a lot less, it’s less of a pleasure knowing that the price isn’t coming down because things are going so well. It’s the opposite. …

The ancient reason the human race has always had storytellers is the belief that some truths are best conveyed in the form of a story. It’s the reason Jesus used parables and Greeks recited their myths. The problem is that while we humans are good at telling stories, we’re often not very good at listening …

Why did I think German Chancellor Angela Merkel might be the voice of reason when it came to discussing global warming? I guess I just figured that of all the failing European economies, Germany’s was probably failing the least, and why would they drive a stake through their own heart after witnessing the economic catastrophe …
