Lies, damn lies & global warming.

Following the ClimateGate scandal the global warming scaremongers couldn’t get more unhinged, could they? Get a load of these recent articles putting the warmers in the spotlight. You can’t make this stuff up, except, well, they did make it up. UK Times: The United Nations’ expert panel on climate change based claims about ice disappearing […]

Obama’s tax promise shattered with ObamaCare.

“If you make less than $250,000 your taxes will not go up. Not one dime.” — Barack Obama. Not one dime, that is, as long as you’re not married.

This is precisely the pattern that was fortified from the ClimateGate e-mails. [Wall Street Journal] An influential United Nations panel is facing growing criticism […]

$35.51 gas tax per gallon?

Here’s Skeptical Environmentalist Bjorn Lomborg on the folly of trying to reduce carbon emissions: Two points underlie the issue of global warming: First, developing nations have no intention of letting the developed world force them to stop using carbon-emitting fuels. They are understandably wary of any policy that might curtail the domestic economic growth that […]

Harry Reid’s “teaching moment.”

It is said that President Barack Obama is fond of using problematic events as “teachable moments.” Well here’s a teachable moment for Republicans in the wake of Harry Reid’s pre-2008 election comments that Obama was “light skinned… with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one”: In matters of racial politics Republicans should consider […]
