Slow Down and Savor the Moments

Food is everywhere. Advertised between mind numbing sitcom television shows and radio programs; interspersed between articles about diet and fitness to fight flab; or posted on billboards along our nation’s streets and highways, it is hard not to be reminded about what to consider eating next.

Bush Sells Out America at U.N. Conference

Our national “news” programs have been preoccupied with baseball players on steroids, but they should devote some attention to the Bush Administration’s approval of a plan to put the United Nations on steroids. Apparently looking to leave office with the blessings of the “international community,” the Bush Administration just sold out American interests at the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Bali, Indonesia.

Gore’s “wrenching” gospel

In many ways, Al Gore is like the charismatic preacher who mesmerized his congregation every Sunday, but during the week, ministered privately to the needs of neglected housewives to satisfy his own appetite.  While sermonizing before the Nobel Committee - and an international television audience - Gore described the hellfire and brimstone of global warming damnation, and pointed the way to planetary salvation: the world must have a mandatory “cap-and-trade” regime, he said, administered by the United Nations.

Al Gore Opens Mouth, Increases Carbon Footprint

—Satire—
Speaking today to COOL-IT (Communists for Only Onerous and Lofty Industrial Taxation) in Nome, Alaska, former vice-president Al Gore criticized the United States’ failure to adequately address climate change.  Mr. Gore warned of future consequences of inaction while emphasizing that we have already felt the effects of a lamentably low suicide rate.  Gore mentioned the extinction of species, the melting of the polar ice caps, and his loss of Florida in the 2000 presidential election.  Said Gore,

A Daily Galaxy Insight: The Airship for the Future?

If you watch just about any movie or TV series, or read any book where the Nazis one in World War 2 is historical fact, then you will most likely have seen an airship! They seem to be the stuff alternate timelines are made of, with movies like Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and books like Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials both preferring airships, zeppelins or dirigible to your good old fashioned plane.

The UN Climate Change Numbers Hoax

Al Gore, Climate ChangeIt’s an assertion repeated by politicians and climate campaigners the world over – ‘2,500 scientists of the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agree that humans are causing a climate crisis’.

But it’s not true. And, for the first time ever, the public can now see the extent to which they have been misled. As lies go, it’s a whopper. Here’s the real situation.

Dishonest political tampering with the science on global warming

Denpasar, Bali - As a contributor to the IPCC’s 2007 report, I share the Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore. Yet I and many of my peers in the British House of Lords - through our hereditary element the most independent-minded of lawmakers - profoundly disagree on fundamental scientific grounds with both the IPCC and my co-laureate’s alarmist movie An Inconvenient Truth, which won this year’s Oscar for Best Sci-Fi Comedy Horror.
