Coming Climate Catastrophe?

Posted · Add Comment

I’ve long been on the record that the global warming/climate change/climate catastrophe or whatever the preferred alarmist formulation of the moment is bogus. There is no coming climate catastrophe. One of the main proofs of this is Instapundit’s regular claim that he’ll start worrying that it’s a crisis when the people yelling loudly that it’s […]

I can remember the days when liberals were strongly in favor of free speech. They would quote with pride the line attributed to Voltaire (but really made by English writer Beatrice Evelyn Hall) “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” Instead, […]

There’s a huge offshore drilling rig currently docked in Seattle, and another on its way, before making their way to their final home off the coast of Alaska. The greens in the Emerald City are outraged and have shown their outrage by attempting to block the rigs using kayaks. Of course, you know what most kayaks nowadays […]

I’ve got something a little longer (and on a different subject) to write about later that was prompted by this same family discussion, but first things first. My position on “climate change” in […]

Your tax dollars at work

This might be funny if it weren’t for the fact that these are tax dollars and real people’s livelihood involved. A politically connected, taxpayer-funded solar firm announced a massive round of furloughs on Friday, just weeks after its chairman told Congress his company was “financially strong.” First Solar, an Arizona-based solar panel manufacturer that received […]

Here in San Luis Obispo County, plastic grocery bags are soon to become a thing of the past. They’re useful, cheap and convenient, so they must be snuffed out in the name of doing it “for the children.” It seems Los Angeles may be following suit. I want to highlight two items regarding this isssue. […]

Chemical crime

No one ever tried to rob a gas station using incandescent bulbs. He took out the fluorescent bulb, smashed it on the desk and demanded cash, police said. The clerk refused to hand over any money and the would-be robber walked away. No word on whether OSHA was called or how the mercury contamination was […]
