The Great Green Newt Turns Into A Chameleon
“Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts” – Richard Feynman Prior to this year’s Presidential Primaries, I had primarily ignored the continued existence of one Newt Gingrich. To the extent that my opinion matters in picking the next GOP Presidential candidate, my ignoring him worked to his benefit. When he announced his run, I learned some fulsome and scurvy truths. One aspect | Read More »
Why Al Gore Isn’t Safe For Work Or Intelligent Debate
I typically like to begin my blog entries with some quote from a powerful individual that addresses my topic. Today, however, I have to alter this procedure. My topic is Anthropogenic Global Warming and the speaker is none other than Al Gore. Therefore, we had to institute a 10 second delay in order to properly work-safe the commentary below. ‘This climate thing, it’s nonsense. Man-made | Read More »
AGW and The Latest China Syndrome
The political consequence of this article seems to be that the simplest solution to global warming is for the Chinese to burn more coal, which they intend to do anyway… – Dr. Judith Curry, Georgia Tech University. The AGW pep-squad has lately found itself befuddled. Kevin Trenbarth of NCAR National laboratory in Colorado, summed up their problem in an email to Dr. Michael Mann. The | Read More »
Some GOP Candidates Have Uninformed Beliefs on the Environment and Energy.
We hear recently from GOP Candidate Mitt Romney. He tells us the following: I’m told that we use almost twice as much energy per person as does a European, and more like three times as much as does a Japanese citizen. We could do a lot better.

The Latest Snow-Job On Behalf of Global Warming

What A Difference Three Years Makes!
It was 2006, and Senator Jim Webb had just finished winning an upset election victory over possible GOP Presidential Candidate George Allen.

How Does Knowledge Accumulate When The Scientists All Lie?
Tony Kane wrote of the recent email hack aimed at Britain’s Climate Research Unit, University of East Anglia. In today’s Huntsville Examiner, his article “ClimateGate emails provide unwanted scrutiny of climate scientists” describes the professional practices rampant among the Western World’s scientific elite.

You Just Can’t Trust John McCain. (HEE-Hee-Hee)
John McCain has recently shown Joe Lieberman and Lindsay Graham the same deeply abiding loyalty that his campaign staff once showed to Governor Palin. In other words, the wheel on the bus are going thump, thump, thump. The issue leading to the latest tergiversation from “Our Friend” Senator McCain is Cap and Trade. It seems he’s found a really cool way of pretending he’s still | Read More »
Recycle Everything – Including Debunked Climate Science Theories.
There is something to be said for disgraced, lying hack Dr. Michael Mann. No matter how often his Hockey Stick Curve™ gets thrown to the dogs, he always seems to bring it back instead of leaving on the dung heap of discarded scientific theory.
