When I heard that COSMOS was coming back on I was a bit excited–for a few seconds.  I enjoyed the original, way back when, though I was not tuned in at the time to potential abuses of the medium for axe-grinding or propaganda.

Global Warming Mythology has evolved into climate change, and then climate catastrophe.  The Global Warming book of Revelations predicts the coming of the Gore Horseman of the apocalypse.  And if we do not spend massive amounts of other people’s money (again) on things only Democrats want, the world as we know it will end.

Thumbnail image for Communism is The Answer – “It’s Settled Science!”

Global Warming has never been about warming.  It is a scheme to use “energy” and the environment to direct behavior toward a socialist system of central planning, even if that “system” is contrary to the stated objective of climate alarmism. If you need proof of that take a look at this. United Nations climate chief […]

The NIPCC Report on Climate – A Non Political Finding By People Not Looking For Government Handouts

by Steve MacDonald October 21, 2013

This would be the fourth report, but given that the IPCC has jumped another shark in its pursuit of “research” that explains its conclusions, we need to post this.

Data Point – Number of 100 degree Readings at all US HCN Stations

by Skip August 28, 2013

Democrats keep saying that they follow the Science; a large part of the scientific process is looking at the data.  Then interpreting it.  With two STEM degrees, I think this interpretation seems to fit the data: “This summer, the US has experienced the fewest number of 100 degree readings in a century.
