Ridicule-Worthy

Coming on the heels of multiple huge snow storms, with another whopper on the way (to say nothing of the ClimateGate scandal, a now steady stream of revelations of errors in the IPCC plus potential ethical and legal problems among climate priests), the geniuses in the Obama (mis)administration are proposing to create a Climate Change [...]

Whither Global Warming?

If anyone finds some of that elusive global warming could you let me know where it is?  As we receive our second 2-feet-or-so snowfall in about a month and a half I could really go for some AGW.

Letter to the Editor

Here is a letter I recently sent to the Philadelphia Inquirer.  It was unpublished, of course.
To the editor,
A recent letter claimed “anyone who is scientifically literate knows that climate-gate is a nonscandal”.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  In fact, many active scientists (climate and otherwise) have recognized this is a serious problem that undermines trust [...]

The CRU/Crappy Media Parallel

As I was writing the previous post on the craptastic legacy media, I realized there’s a remarkable parallel with the unfolding CRU hacked email scandal.  When true believers (leftwing journalists in one case vs climate researchers in the other) control the input (reporting vs climate data) and the “unbiased” check on quality (editors vs peer [...]

Experts and Heretics

There were two pieces in the NY Times recently on completely unrelated topics that I think have a surprising connection.  The first was by Nicholas Kristof and could have been titled “The Tyranny of Experts”.  The key take-aways are that in general experts are not more successful in predicting outcomes than non-experts and the experts [...]

Thou Shalt Not

Thou shalt not question the scientists.  The scientists assured us we are the cause of global warming would be receiving 1 to 3 inches of snow.  Their computer models are very accurate.  They can say with certainty what the climate weather will be like in 100 years 12 hours.  Anyone who believes global warming is [...]

Oh, The Irony

It recently snowed in London.
It recently snowed in London for the first time since 1922.
It recently snowed in London for the first time since 1922 as Parliament debated a Global Warming Bill.
If that isn’t a satirist’s dream I don’t know what is.

My Two Part Plan to Fight Global Warming

To do my part to combat global warming I've put together a simple two part plan.  We'll call it the American Manifesto Two Part Plan to Combat Global Warming or the AMTPPCGW.  Since I didn't have a UN sponsored committee to help, I had to come up with that name myself.  The AMTPPCGW consists of [...]

Global Warming - The (13th) Most Pressing Environmental Problem

Here's a link to a nice post over at the Cato Institute's blog site pointing out that, empirically rather than hysterically, global warming ranks a wimpy 13th on the list of big environment problems.  Yes, let's turn modernity on its head and let Prophet Gore run our lives for the 13th most important environment problem.  [...]
