Remember: He’s smart

Have you ever wondered why your flood insurance doesn’t pay off when your house burns to the ground? No? Well, then you’re smarter than that guy in the White House.   When I was young, just got out of college, I had to buy auto insurance. I had a beat-up old car. And I won’t […]

An olive branch?

Dr. Judith Curry – a climate scientist who is an Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmist, but not an elite member of “the team,” i.e. Gavin Schmidt, James Hansen, Phil Jones – has offered up a proverbial olive branch in the interest of “rebuilding” the “trust” the climategate scandal has demolished. Of course, she can’t resist using […]

Health Care reform

Today was not a good day for President Obama and the Democrats. The Republicans didn’t look like a bunch of know-nothing, childish, just-say-no obstructionists with no ideas of their own. Should the president and his allies go forward with pushing this disaster via reconciliation, the blowback will be immense. Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin made […]

Don’t bring a spork to a gunfight

Howard Friel has published a book called “The Lomborg Deception.” Newsweek “science editor” Sharon Begley praises it. Armed Liberal notes that Begley shoots herself in the foot on her credibility.

Some of you in low-lying areas were worried. Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings. The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report […]

My letter to the editor

Well, it’s been 11 days since I’ve submitted it to the local newspaper and it hasn’t appeared in print, so I’m going to assume that it will never appear. It’s funny that for 15 years of my life I couldn’t get a letter printed in the local paper because I worked for the paper, now […]
