In 1981 the United States Supreme Court concluded that “the Constitution does not mandate comfortable prisons.” And why would it? Prisons are, well, prisons. But that’s not stopping inmates and others from filing lawsuits claiming cruel and unusual punishment because so many prisons in warmer parts of the US are not air conditioned. This must be driving […]

Solar Physics has a breakthrough. The settled-scientific community wants it retracted. Why? Recent research by Professor Valentina Zharkova (Northumbria University) and colleagues has shed new light on the inner workings of the Sun. If correct, this new discovery means that future solar cycles and variations in the Sun’s activity can be predicted more accurately.

Here on the front lines in the battle against global warming is 1 Star Island Drive, Miami Beach Florida. This 7-bed, 8-bath, nearly 8,000 square-foot beachfront getaway can be yours for a paltry $37,000,000.00. An obvious scam considering the imminent destruction of these swanky digs by the unstoppable rising seas. You’d think the Democrats and climate […]

Scary Headline: Melting in the Arctic reached an all-time high in June: Ice has been disappearing at a rate of 29,000 square miles a day. Reality: The Arctic loses about 27,000 square miles a day on average every summer. Losing 29,000 is well within the normal variability. But most people won’t know that. (And Greenland is fine […]

Everything the left supports, defends, or does should be filtered through this context. Emphasis mine.      “The chief appeal of war to social planners isn’t conquest or death but mobilization. Free societies are disorganized. People do their own thing, more or less, and that can be downright inconvenient if you’re trying to plan the […]
