A common fallback position when losing an argument is to assault your adversary personally. Known as ad hominem, it involves “attacking an opponent’s motives or character rather than the policy or position they maintain.” In climate science, those who employ this rhetorical tactic attack individuals who ask probing scientific questions. The attacks indicate that they know how inadequate […]

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 […]

“It occurred to me….” Texting gives a new meaning to the phrase twiddling your thumbs. David Suzuki wants to jail politicians who ignore climate science. What he really wants is to jail those who don’t accept his interpretation of climate science. It’s a mentality he applies to all the environmental sciences and is part of […]

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, […]

Few understand or can believe the extent of corrupted science produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Data was altered, or completely ignored and research directed to prove their hypothesis that human’s were causing global warming. Emails leaked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in 2009 tell the story. People at the CRU […]

Politicians know a country needs an educated work force, but know educated people ask probing informed questions. Information is power, which, until the internet, was limited and controlled by few people. Now a story appears in a controlled media that has generally abandoned integrity but still think they can fool people. Within minutes it is […]

No, this is not another article about tree rings, hockey sticks, and rewritten history, although that is one tree in the climate forest. A group of scientists dismissed historical evidence and misled the public about temperature trends. Some dismiss their actions as bad science, but the evidence, particularly exposed in the leaked e-mails from the […]

Official climate science is based on the corrupted work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). One proof of corruption is the constant moving of the goalposts. They’re not moved to accommodate new evidence but to defend the hypothesis. A major example occurred in 2000 when CO2 continued to rise but temperatures declined, contradicting […]
