Count Obama’s whoppers from his BP speech.

There are lies, there are damned lies, and there’s Barack Obama. His presidential address to the nation regarding the BP Deepwater Horizon oil leak was filled with some big fibs. Starting with: “But make no mistake:  We will fight this spill with everything we’ve got for as long as it takes. .. And we will […]

The academic fraud after The Day After Tomorrow.

I had a laugh out loud moment this Sunday night, flipping channels and stopping on the FX network showing (yet again) of The Day After Tomorrow, an apocalyptic global warming movie filled with gratuitous scenes of our destruction. I imagine the folks at FX programming probably would never have guessed that this weekend one of […]

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 […]

Speculation, not science.

What’s remarkable about this article is just how unapologetic and brazen the UN is about making claims — and thus promoting expensive, uneconomic policies — that aren’t remotely based on science. 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 […]

Green = Red.

Environmentalism is about cash. We’ll start with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ridiculous press conference earlier this month that must have left people wondering if the Governator was preparing for his next action movie role. Mimicking the global warming doomsayers via afantasy Armageddon scenario (read: The Day After Tomorrow, 2012, etc.)  Schwarzenegger presented his constituents a map of […]

Tom Friedman’s “Precautionary Principle.”

Tom Friedman’s most recent column (Going Cheney on Climate) seeks to champion action on (alleged) global warming on the basis of the “precautionary principle.” The idea behind precautionary principle is basically insurance — you make the investment not on the certainty of something adverse occurring, at least not right away, but on the likelihood that […]

“Peer-review” explained with one picture.

Climategate & Leftist hypocrisy.

Having read many of the e-mails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia writer James Delingpole summarizes six major categories, including: (1) Manipulation of evidence in favor of global warming, (2) Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up, (3) Suppression of evidence contrary to their views, (4) […]

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.
