The Shaman’s at the United Nations Intergovernmental Plunderers for Climate Cash (IPCC) have eyed the computerized goat-entrails yet-again and determined that the failure of sinners to repent will result in even greater global pain and suffering than all previous predictions combined, or something.  (Pick up your environmentally friendly ‘The end is Near” sandwich boards at […]

Just another day in the neighborhood. Despite scoring $50,000 speeches from big oil—a sum nearly equal to the median household income—(Jim) Messina’s OFA website says the Obama campaign-turned-advocacy group is busy battling global warming and fighting for “clean energy.” The Breitbart article points out, quoting insiders, that Jim Messina, part of the Income Inequality Rhetoric […]

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2014
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 […]

For the Democrats in any state clamoring for more revenue and crying out to “help those in need™”; to those Democrats who insist we send it to DC before your representatives-to-the-state-from-the-federal government horse-trade (our horses) to get it back; to those Democrats who still think spending over $70 billion a year on the Federal Department […]

Data Point – What happened to all the Hurricanes that Global Warming was to bring?

by Skip October 27, 2013

So, why the bust? “The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season looks set to go down as a big washout, marking the first time in 45 years that the strongest storm to form was just a minor Category 1 hurricane. There could still be a late surprise in the June 1-Nov. 30 season, since the cyclone that […]

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. The report, which cites thousands of peer-reviewed articles the United Nations-sponsored panel on climate change ignored, also found that “no empirical evidence exists to substantiate the claim […]

They’re almost laughable – socialists and global warmists

by Skip October 4, 2013

First on the Socialists – an observation from El Rushbo: Let me give you an interesting observation on William F. Buckley. It’s a quote, but it’s more an observation. Buckley pointed out that in the ’30s we were told we had to “collectivize the nation,” i.e., big government. Go socialist. We had to collectivize the […]

Let me be clear.  I think it is awesome that this kid wants to break a record and increase ‘awareness” and I think we need more of these adventurous sorts in every age group, but will he be increasing awareness of his preconceived notions about the climate or educating us on how what he sees […]

We are heading toward a record lack of hurricanes… is it due to Global Warming? The number of named storms is on pace to fall within the range several seasonal forecasts have projected. On average, however, the season should have seen its first hurricane by now, and none has emerged. Indeed, the first major hurricane, […]

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. The five hottest […]

by Skip June 9, 2013

By ‘Warmists”, I mean those folks that believe that the Earth is warming AND that human activity is responsible for it (if not entirely, certainly a large proportion of it).  Thus, just like the “Coolists” that I read back in the 70s who declared that a New Ice Age was imminent.  Now, between Warming and […]

Book Burning Climatologists… aka Religious Zealots

by Scott Morales May 9, 2013

Fevered religiosity when perturbed sometimes manifests itself with a ruddy face, engorged veins running beneath a purple forehead, and trembling that’s even detectable by a Seismometer.  The fever stricken often respond with quixotic obtuseness with a flavor of blind stupidity and succumb to behavior often not naturally found in their temperament. Which brings us to […]
