If you shut your eyes for just a moment while reading this latest HuffPo piece by Robert Kennedy, Jr., you can almost hear the gobs of spittle smacking his monitor as he wrote. There’s really nothing like the pungent aroma of blue blood at full boil.

Alternate New York Times Headline: ‘Global Warming Saves Civilization’
Like Beauty, the interpretation of scientific data is often in the eye of the beholder. I’m an engineer with more than a smattering of book-learning in the geologic sciences. It has always struck me as appalling that the scientists who would reorder our very lives around their interpretation of climate science and its implications for our future have so little interest in earth history and | Read More »
“Climate change” cools off
These are not happy times for the Church of Global Warming, which has been trying to repackage its manufactured hysteria as “climate change” for several years. But according to the New York Times on Thursday, we’ve actually come full circle to where we began in the Seventies: global cooling. After some flapdoodle about global temperature spikes (in fact, not only is there no evidence connecting human activity to | Read More »
Obama’s I won, let’s compromise and do things my way post-election press conference
On Tuesday, President Obama held the 16th “full” White House press conference of his presidency. That’s right Obama goes golfing more than six times for every press conference he gives.
This was the first scheduled, solo news conference for Obama since March. The last time Obama saw fit to allow the White House press corps an opportunity to formally ask him questions on U.S. soil was his “hastily-announced” appearance in the White House briefing room on June 8, 2012, during which he infamously said “the private sector is doing fine.”
During today’s press conference Obama was asked about climate change, Gen. David Petraeus, the fiscal cliff, immigration reform, Iran, A mandate, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, Gov. Mitt Romney and Syria.

Robert Murphy on Peter Gleick’s faked Heartland memo: “oozing absurdities.”
I rather badly want to have been the person who first came up with that phrase, in fact. I feel that I need to get this on the record. Anyway, if you were looking for a recap on the entire didn’t-turn-out-as-intended climate alarmist attack on the Heartland Institute by – well, I suppose that it has not been proven in a court of law that | Read More »
More on the Peter Gleick Fakegate Memo.
This is pretty good stuff of Megan McArdle, re Peter Gleick‘s own-goal sabotage of climate change advocates by disseminating/allegedly creating a fake Heartland memo on its global warming strategies (not to mention his confessed identity theft): When skeptics complain that global warming activists are apparently willing to go to any lengths–including lying–to advance their worldview, I’d say one of the movement’s top priorities should be | Read More »
Rasmussen and the Global Warming Liars.
Hey, don’t look at me. Or Rasmussen Reports. We’re just reporting results. Object to the American people: The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-two percent (22%) don’t think | Read More »
The Climes They Are A-Changin’
Nobel laureate economist and Princeton Professor Paul Krugman opines on the causes of a recent run-up in food prices: Droughts, Floods and Food By PAUL KRUGMAN February 6, 2011 So what’s behind the [food and commodity] price spike? American right-wingers (and the Chinese) blame easy-money policies at the Federal Reserve, with at least one commentator declaring that there is “blood on Bernanke’s hands.” … But | Read More »
The UK’s Big Freeze Redux
Bwhahahahahaha! In a replay of last year’s weather pattern, the U.K. is once again in the grips of a Global Warming Climate Change-induced record cold snap. Not to worry. Those industrious Brits had the foresight to build wind farms with rated capacity equal to 5% of the country’s electricity needs. But they’re getting only 1.6% of their electricity from the wind farms. Because… Extreme wintertime | Read More »
University Study Confirms Renewable Energy Isn’t Economically Feasible
From the diaries by Erick Colorado State University recently completed a study on the economic feasibility of increasing the usage of renewable energy. The results of this study were published in the world-renowned science periodical, The Coloradoan. Another stimulus-funded study of the obvious? No, what we have here is simply a heavy dose of reality for academicians who aren’t willing to match their rhetoric with | Read More »
Only One in Three Buy ‘The Consensus’
Despite a constant drumbeat of apocalyptic warnings from the press and a “scientific consensus”, only one in three Americans believes that the earth’s climate is warming, and that the warming is caused by humans. In 2006, AGW believers comprised 50% of Americans, and as recently as April 2008 47% percent were in the AGW camp. These are the results of a study released on Wednesday | Read More »
Sen. John Kerry, Climate Expert
John Kerry in the Huffington Post (9/21) goes off on a “Climate is Not Weather” riff, and then says something quite revealing: It’s next to impossible to attribute any single natural disaster or weather event entirely to climate change. But the pattern of recent events provides insights into the challenges we will face in a warming world. We may not know if flooding in Pakistan | Read More »
Tech at Night: Free Press, MoveOn, Google, TEA Party, NOAA
So Free Press and MoveOn.org decided to protest Google’s new stance with Verizon on Net Neutrality. They went to Mountain View and everything, but there’s just one catch: they only managed to bring 100 people. (Photo via @mjterave.) Just more evidence that Free Press and MoveOn are the ones taking the radical fringe position on Net Neutrality.

Rep. Giffords to Petraeus: You’re Fighting Two Wars? But What About Windmills?
On Wednesday, General David Petraeus was on the Hill to brief Congress on Afghanistan. You know, that place where we are still fighting one of two wars, even though Democrats have stopped screeching that No War For Oil line ever since Obama became President. I suppose they figure that he has enough to worry about, what with busily trying to improve his golf handicap and | Read More »
This Week in Washington – June 7, 2010
Rahm Emanuel on November 19, 2008 in a Wall Street Journal video product 2008 Shaping the New Agenda uttered the now famous words: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. What I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Evidently, the left will not allow the Gulf of Mexico oil spill ”crisis to go to | Read More »
