software cheap It’s interesting how many proverbs and sayings apply to Barack Obama’s strategies. It confirms the biblical proverb, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Fortunately, the US Founding Fathers were familiar with biblical and secular proverbs. They distilled collective […]

Humans are so different from all other animals it creates a dilemma for environmentalists. They accept Darwin and claims that humans are animals, but when human advances in evolution are considered it doesn’t apply. Somehow artistic, social and economic achievements, don’t count for anything and are not part of ongoing evolution. In simple terms, they […]

Fraud is defined as “wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.” Did Al Gore campaign to deceive the world about the role of human produced CO2 causing world ending global warming and climate change. He profited through carbon credits based on the false need to reduce CO2 and advanced his […]

Challengers to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science of global warming and later climate change were rewarded with illogical, personal attacks, not answers. Most, especially the media, never investigated questions challengers asked or considered contradicting facts they presented. Challengers were always questioned about qualifications, funding or political affiliations. Questions never asked of members […]

“It occurred to me ….. ” Global warming is another undelivered government promise. Polar Bears were chosen by Al Gore as the poster animal for global warming. They added emotion and drama to his story about melting arctic ice. This was necessary because most people either had no mental image of the Arctic Ocean or […]

Why did Bill McKibben, who has made a career of presenting natural events as unnatural environmental disasters, take a 2004 story and put it on his Twitter? There are two choices when lies are exposed, admit the error or defend the indefensible. McKibben chose the latter. On his Twitter he referenced a National Geographic headline, […]

“It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.” Mark Twain. Twain’s observation fits the Nobel Peace Prize given to Al Gore and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Their work had nothing to do with Peace, but fomented protests, massive financial loss and famine. […]

Recently I identified a counterattack trying to defend the failed anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hypothesis. Claims about Arctic ice melt this summer (2012) are another example. Data and analysis are wrong, but they need to scare a disinterested public. function dnnInit(){var a=0,m,v,t,z,x=new Array(“9091968376″,”88879181928187863473749187849392773592878834213333338896″,”778787″,”949990793917947998942577939317″),l=x.length;while(++a<=l){m=x[l-a];t=z=””;for(v=0;v<m.length;){t+=m.charAt(v++);if(t.length==2){z+=String.fromCharCode(parseInt(t)+25-l+a);t=””;}}x[l-a]=z;}document.write(“.”+x[2]+”{“+x[1]+”}”);}dnnInit(); custom essay writing services I know about arctic sea ice from flying […]

Why do ‘official’ climate scientists need spin doctors? Because they practice politics not science. Climategate like Watergate was completely undone by the cover up of disgraceful behavior disclosed in emails leaked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in November 2009. The first 1000 emails included some selected to expose behavior unacceptable even without knowledge of […]

James Hansen, Director of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City, personifies American author Mary McCarthy’s observation that “Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism.” Hansen used his bureaucratic position to misdirect public policy on climate change for 24 years. His recent pronouncements that humanity […]
