Antarctic Shrimp, Global Warming and the Laffer Curve
This one’s about philosophy, science and chaotic systems. H/T Caleb Howe, who called attention to an AP Science article today: Scientists go ‘gaga’ to find creatures beneath 600 feet of ice A borehole through 600 feet of Antarctic sea ice discovers two new critters: a sort of shrimp, and a jellyfish, living in a region that no scientist predicted. Until they’re proven tasty in a | Read More »

The Tumbling House of Climate Cards
The “scientific consensus” surrounding Global Climate Change is now devolving into a delicious comedy of errors.

The Global Warming Catch-22
What are the warm-mongers so afraid of that they result to preposterous ad hominem attacks whenever someone disputes their incredibly shaky “settled science”?

Harrison Bergeron; Meet Berkley, CA
Often the most cutting and effective satire against the iniquity of progressive ideology comes from intelligent leftists who can no longer bear the stupidity they personally champion. George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 are classic examples. Kurt Vonnegut, a darling of the intellectual left for works such as Slapstick and Slaughterhouse Nine, also had his moment of cognitive dissonance. His short story Harrison Bergeron pillories | Read More »
Telegraph: Climategate is no problem! Just ask those under suspicion!
The London Telegraph was so profoundly upset by the news that the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (CRU) had allegedly falsified data that they felt compelled to issue a press release: Sceptics claim the emails show climate change data was being manipulated. Prof Jones, director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), has said he “absolutely” stands by | Read More »

East Anglia University used to proudly host the Climate Research Unit. Now, perhaps, they wish that the well-heeled yet skeptical alumni didn’t know that this particular academic institution existed on their campus. EAU-CRU claimed to have the most comprehensive and well-ordered archive of climate data in the world. According to Lorrie Goldstein of the Toronto Sun, they have an archive that holds a certain volume | Read More »
Move over Bernie Madoff, there’s a new con-man in town.
Yeah yeah yeah, Bernie was the biggest con-man ever, until last week. Last week, I am sad to say, saw exposed the biggest conspiracy to defraud the entire world of TRILLIONS of dollars. Those in the know (read that as those who actually look to sources like Red State, Drudge, Talk radio, and Fox News) already know what grand theft I am talking about. I’m | Read More »
The Five Questions Of Global Warming
Cap-and-Trade is just one of the many ways in which the federal government will try to be restricting the freedoms of individuals and businesses in the name of fighting global warming (now being conveniently called climate change). Environmentalism was once a fuzzy feel-good plank of the left, however in recent years many such as Thomas Friedman and Van Jones have realized the possibility of using broad | Read More »
Rep. Lee Terry On Cap & Trade
I just finished interviewing Rep. Lee Terry, (R-NE), about the House Cap and Trade legislation. I’d like to thank Rep. Terry, who was more than generous with his time today. The first question I hasked Rep. Terry was whether there was any breaking news from today’s hearing. He said that David Sokol’s testimony put the Democrats on the defensive. Rep. Terry said that his staff | Read More »
Nationwide No-on-Cap-and-Trade Tax Rally; Bonus Policy Details
Dear Friends: This is both a save-the-date request, as well as a clarion call to action. Many of you have been following Henry Waxman’s actions to push-forth a free enterprise-endangering, liberty-impeding monstrosity nicknamed “Cap-and-Trade”. The details are provided HERE. Our little group of agitators, the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition, is calling for a nationwide protest of this bill, perhaps inspiring some wobbly Republicans and | Read More »
Science Marches On, Right Past Al Gore
At the turn of the 20th century, the experts believed that Physics was a settled science. We were either at a solution, or very close to one. There was simply nothing new to learn in physics, was the consensus. As soon as the loose ends were tied up, our understanding of the universe would be complete. Then light acted up. Oops. Physics is still reeling | Read More »
Liberals are anti-science: reading between the lines of intellectual bullying
Promoted from the diaries by Neil Believe it or not, Salon.com has given a conservative the opportunity to fill their space. This weeks question in “Ask a Wingnut” gets to an important topic, one with implications far beyond the scope of the actual words. On the face of it, the Wingnut author does a good job answering the question: the Conservative record on science is | Read More »

Huffington Post: Presenting Fake ‘Doctors’ as Experts?
There is a charge starting to make the rounds of the science and medical blogs that the Huffington Post is allowing its bloggers to claim they are “doctors” when some really aren’t qualified to claim the title. Still others ply their legitimately earned title to discuss as authorities issues in fields other than those in which they trained. Some of these same “doctors” are offering | Read More »
Fuel From Water…. “My People” Done Up ‘N Did It !!!
Awesome. Israeli Science Breakthrough Extracts Fuel from Water http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/130806 Among the most important challenges facing science today is designing an efficient system for splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. The ability to do so will introduce hydrogen into the market as a clean, sustainable fuel. But man-made systems for getting to the root of water that exist today are very inefficient and often require additional | Read More »
