Anthropic global warming theory = junk science

An unfalsifiable theory is, by definition, junk science. Anthropic global warming is unfalsifiable, as can be seen with the recent rise to prevalence of the term “climate change” in place of global warming. Sure, the global temperatures have not risen for the past 15 years, but if you say “climate change,” you can have it […]

Electricity is good

Just thought I’d share this interesting “demotivator” sign Jay Nordlinger mentioned in his blog today. It was created by a guy who works (poor soul) at a state environmental agency.

Who benefits from global warming scaremongering?

Bret Stephens answers this question in the Wall Street Journal: Socialism may have failed as an economic theory, but global warming alarmism, with its dire warnings about the consequences of industry and consumerism, is equally a rebuke to capitalism. Take just about any other discredited leftist nostrum of yore – population control, higher taxes, a […]

What makes my blood boil…

…is the elitists in the global warming scaremongering movement that tell us that we have to make sacrifices or the world is going to end. Rich people like Al Gore and Sting who say that there is a crisis going on and that we have to change the way we live or the earth itself […]

Are we causing Mars and Jupiter to warm, too?

If there are no Martians or Jupiterians, then the global warming occuring on those planets must be our fault, right? Well, at least we know President Bush has something to do with it.

The precious accident

I was watching a show called “Alien Planet” on the Discovery channel today, and some scientist (I presume an atheist) said, “We have to realize that life is the result of a series of random accidents. Life is precious, so we must do whatever we can to protect it.” He then went into a shpiel […]

Global warming has stopped?

The following is an excerpt from an article published on the New Statesman website pointing out that global temperatures have been statistically the same for every year after 2001. They’ve levelled off! The entire article is here. Global warming stopped? Surely not. What heresy is this? Haven’t we been told that the science of global […]

No show of hands

This is awesome: Fred leads the way and won’t let the obviously biased moderator get away with it. Update – Here’s what Fred’s campaign has to say: Running for President is serious business. We’re facing pressing issues like national security, bankrupt entitlements, a broken tax code, and out-of-control judges. So what did the liberal moderator […]

Scientists exaggerate? Tell me it ain’t so!

It turns out that “The United Nations’ top AIDS scientists plan to acknowledge this week that they have long overestimated [read “lied about”] both the size and the course of the [AIDS] epidemic, which they now believe has been slowing for nearly a decade…” They also said they cannot rule out futher downward revisions. Leave […]

Apocalypse Now?

 I’m not a big fan of Pat Buchanan. Sometimes his opinions are way out there. He’s got his thinking cap on, though, in his latest column about global warming. I especially liked the following statement: Like the panics of bygone eras, this one has the aspect of yet another re-enactment of the Big Con. The […]
