Tim May has an interesting article on temperature reconstruction from Greenland ice cores up on WUWT. The article is interesting and reasonably understandable for those of us who casually follow climate science. There are two bits of the article I found particularly interesting, charting of the ice core testing results with average and historical markers […]

The truth about “green” energy

I’m astounded that common sense and logic have no place in the thinking of the green energy advocates. After the disaster in Texas where people froze to death because the government (federal) would not let the state (wtf?) ensure there was sufficient backup for the “green” energy when it failed, you’d think more people would have […]

Climate Change Ridiculousness

OMGosh, the climate change alarmists have just gotten more ridiculous. Here’s the problem as I see it. Because those who knew the global cooling/warming/climate change science was massively flakey didn’t have a platform to express their horror/dismay/disbelief at the complete crap going into reports like the one produced by Michael Mann, the IPCC and other […]

In my RSS feed (I use Bloglines as I’m still boycotting Google) I have over 30 hard and soft news sources.  I can get away with having this many because most don’t produce a lot of data daily.  For example, one of my favorite singers, Diana Krall, adds concert dates every couple months.  I subscribe […]

Still riding the “ain’t no such thing” global warming horse

The rain can stop any time now. If it doesn’t, I’m considering ark building as a potential hobby. There’s lots going on in the global warming debate. Much of the steam has seeped out of the global warmists’ engine. Poland, among other EU eastern border countries, has told the rest of the EU to eff […]

One of the sites that’s doing a good job of highlighting the disparity between liberal spin and cold hard fact is the Heritage Foundation.  I tried to get to their spin-off Heritage Action this morning and got a 503 (no server available) this morning.  Denial of service attack was the first thing that came to […]

This letter went to President Obama, Maria Cantwell, Patty Murray and Jaime Herrera-Beutler today.  My expectation is that, of the four, only Herrera-Beutler is going to understand, agree and take the appropriate action. I don’t want to send you the pre-formatted letter sent by many using FreedomWorks connector.  I will take the time and use […]

The truth about nuclear power?

Read the unpalatable truth about the anti-nuclear lobby for the truth about nuclear power. And then comes the rant . . . I think this one’s been building for a while. One of the things that irritates me to the extreme is the misreporting/slanting of the facts done by activists and politicians. Not just on […]

This morning in my CNS News Brief I saw this – Oil Shock By Rich Galen As an expert in the area of predicting gasoline prices, I am willing to bet a Starbucks Grande Mocha that we’ll be peeking at $4.00 per gallon gasoline by this summer — $5.00 in California. At some point, higher […]

I don’t know if you get the CNSNews daily news brief. I do. This blip actually made me shake my head. Hillary Clinton Wants Global Standards for Cook Stoves (CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a “global alliance for clean cook stoves” Tuesday at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative. The U.S. […]
