The High Cost of Climate Lies

An energy-rationing bill has been introduced to address “global warming.” The “Climate Security Act” would impose caps on how much carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions can be allowed and would institute an elaborate program to “trade” allowances among the industries and business affected.

Political gimmickery

As was pointed out in The Wall Street Journal and elsewhere, the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was not awarded to the Burmese monks who have defied the military junta in their country and have had the whole world watching their plight. Nor to Morgan Tsvangirai and other Zimbabwe opposition leaders who were arrested and in some cases beaten by police earlier this year while protesting against the murderous policies of dictator Robert Mugabe. Nor to Father Nguyen Van Ly, a Catholic priest in Vietnam arrested this year and sentenced to eight years in prison.

Hey Al Gore, We Want a Refund

A British judge ruled on the eve of Al Gore co-winning the Nobel Peace Prize that students forced to watch “An Inconvenient Truth” must be warned of the film’s factual errors. But would there be any science at all left in Gore’s “truth” if these errors and their progeny were excised?

“The Future is nigh” cried the Futurist

The future will always be—to me—a mystery wrapped up inside an enigma. However, for some, the future is something to be unwrapped at all costs, leaving behind logic and childhood excitement in the process. Raymond Kurzweil is one of these men who believe that the future is something both predictable and foreseeable, and he’s made a living out of telling other people about his vision for that future.

Now is the time to listen to climate scientists, not activists

imageListening to the Speech from the Throne Tuesday, one could be forgiven for thinking that the Conservatives were copying Stephane Dion’s leadership campaign tactics of 13 months ago. In Dion’s case, he took his climate change phraseology essentially verbatim from a David Suzuki report. In the case of the Harper government, they appear to have lifted most of their assertions from a wider selection of environmental groups, but the messages are equally unfounded nonethe-less.

First, the government tells us that “Threats to our environment are a clear and present danger that now confronts governments around the world.”

“Clear and present danger” is a popular phrase used by environmental activists when speaking about climate change, Al Gore-trained Desiree McGraw of Montreal and Ralph Torrie, whose company produces greenhouse gas emissions software, being typical examples.

Diminishing the Nobel Peace Prize

In 1964, Martin Luther King won the Nobel Peace Prize for leading the non-violent crusade against racism and slavery—bettering not only America but the entire world.

In 1971, Willi Brandt won the Peace Prize for leading Germany’s peaceful reintegration back into the “world family of nations,” healing the destruction caused by Kaiser Wilhelm and Adolph Hitler with two World Wars that caused at least 70 million deaths.

Not “Peak Oil”, But Lots More Oil

There was an interesting news item out of Moscow in late September to which most people probably paid little heed. “Russia is one of several countries that have rushed to lay claims to the area where a U.S. Study suggests as much as 25 percent of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas could be hidden.”

Greenpeace Capture Power Plant… what, are we at war

Just after 5 a.m., on Monday the 8th of October, a group of Greenpeace environmentalists laid siege to Kingsnorth coal fired power station in Kent. Their plan was simple, and effective. Get in, and shut it down.

African Mega-Drought Rewrites Out of Africa

The words ‘tropical’ and ‘lush’ are not necessarily the descriptive words you would normally associate with Africa, especially when presented with the choice of ‘barren’ and ‘arid’. But the continent of Africa is not all desert and dust; at least, not any more.

DDT Backlash Continues

Ever since the World Health Organization reversed the environmentalist-promoted ban on DDT in 2006, eco-activists have scrambled to devise new ways to malign the life-saving insecticide in order to salvage their badly marred reputation.

Global Warming’s Trillion-Dollar Turkey

Journalists, Global Warming, and the Truth

Being skeptical used to be a badge of honor for journalists, but if one reads any newspaper these days, most reporters casually refer to “global warming” without any hint that it is anything other than a done deal. Too many reporters have completely bought into the notion that humans and their use of fossil fuels are destroying the atmosphere and “causing” global warming. Neither assumption is true.

Weather Stations Giving Bad Global Warming Data, A Problem Ignored

imageA few months ago, the blogosphere and talk radio were abuzz with the story of how the nation’s various weather stations and temperature reading devices have been improperly located or badly constructed and how the data received from these improper devices must be suspected as inaccurate.

Since global warming research often uses this suspect data that is gleaned from these failed stations, it must therefore call into question the accuracy of the entire theory as its conclusions are derived from likely false data. Still, even as the blogosphere and talk radio blasted the news, the MSM ignores this explosive story.

Global Warming and the Chesapeake Bay

I was invited to testify before the Senate environment committee Sept. 26, on “The Impact of Global Warming on the Chesapeake Bay.” I told the committee there was no man-made global warming impact on the Bay. The Bay has been warmer than now several times because the moderate 1,500-year climate cycles have warmed it at least five times since the Bay was created 12,000 years ago. At least two of those cycles, and perhaps all of them, were warmer than today.

Here Come the Dems - Again!

With all the disappointment experienced during the Bush years, it is easy to understand why people are again looking to Democrats to set the nation on the right course.  What is the right course?  According to many Democrats and Republicans alike, the “right” course is anything other than what President Bush and the congressional Republicans want.

Sunny, But Expensive Dreams

New Jersey has a multi-millionaire Governor, Jon Corzine, whose monthly energy bill is not a problem. That leaves the rest of the State’s citizens out in the cold because, as the largest daily newspaper recently noted, “New Jersey already is one of the most expensive states for business” and, may I add, for auto insurance, property taxes, and a sales tax.
