Peer review, Climate-style.

Here’s what Phil Jones of the CRU [Climate Research Unit] and his colleague Michael Mann of Penn State mean by “peer review.” When Climate Research published a paper dissenting from the Jones-Mann “consensus,” Jones demanded that the journal “rid itself of this troublesome editor,” and Mann advised that “we have to stop considering Climate Research […]

The Climategate quote of the week.

For the first time, Anthropogenic Global Warming cranks are on the defensive, losing their cool and uttering desperate mantras such as “You can be sceptical, not denial.” Gee, thanks, guys. In fact we shall be whatever we want to be, without asking your permission. — Gerald Warner, UK Telegraph.

Climategate & your livelihood.

Best summary yet. This is from the UK’s Christopher Monckton. Note his point about “an unelected government.” He’s not kidding either. And worse, right now, assisting this unelected body who champion worldwide regulation and taxation of carbon, are scores of international corporations proposing a $10 trillion treaty and “one-world” climate tax. Were something like this […]

More Climategate.

Here’s Robert Tracinski on Climategate. These e-mails show, among many other things, private admissions of doubt or scientific weakness in the global warming theory. In acknowledging that global temperatures have actually declined for the past decade, one scientist asks, “where the heck is global warming?… The fact is that we can’t account for the lack […]

Climategate’s ‘campaign of lies.’

The handling of this crisis suggests that nothing has been learnt by climate scientists in this country from 20 years of assaults on their discipline. They appear to have no idea what they’re up against or how to confront it. Their opponents might be scumbags, but their media strategy is exemplary. The greatest tragedy here […]

Climategate.

Potentially trillions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are at stake with any Congressional push to regulate or tax carbon emissions. Shouldn’t the science be not just sound but as true a law as gravity itself? Of course, it’s beyond that too. Even if  climate change were occurring (it isn’t), and even if it were antropogenic, or […]

Holder’s ‘farcical show trial.’

As usual Charles Krathammer best summarizes the folly of trying KSM in civilian court. So why is Attorney General Eric Holder doing this? Ostensibly, to demonstrate to the world the superiority of our system, where the rule of law and the fair trial reign. Really? What happens if KSM (and his co-defendants) “do not get […]

Green Luddites.

Today, there is a name for the political doctrine that rejoices in scarcity of everything except government. The name is environmentalism. — George Will.

Obama & Holder amateur hour II.

Here’s a question as you read this — if the federal government can try KSM in federal court without him ever been read his Miranda warning, what’s from stopping them from doing the same to a U.S. citizen? [NPR] SEN. GRAHAM: Well, let me ask you this. Okay, let me ask you this. Let’s say […]

Obama & Holder Amateur hour.

[Politico] During a round of network television interviews conducted during Obama’s visit to China, the president was asked about those who find it offensive that Mohammed will receive all the rights normally accorded to U.S. citizens when they are charged with a crime. “I don’t think it will be offensive at all when he’s convicted […]
