Geopolitics is a world little used today because it was created in Germany before WWI and guided the thinking and actions of the nation through WWII and the Third Reich. It was so unacceptable that when, in the 1970s, I wanted to teach a course with that name the university refused. They allowed me to […]

It’s alive and well in your backyard. The entire policy of using anthropogenic global warming as a false front to implement global governance and impose how we will all live is working with remarkable success. The plan was set out by Maurice Strong as Agenda 21 in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. It is succeeding […]

Some say the internet is the cause of a dramatic increase in conspiracy theories. What is actually happening is that for the first time in history everybody has access to an amount of information unavailable even for many governments in the past. They find out how much they were deceived, and they are sounding off. […]

Military pilots know that if the flak is heavy, it is a sure sign you are over the target. It didn’t take long after Scott Pruitt took over at EPA for the deep state bureaucrats within the department to begin leaking what they claimed were personal abuses of money, rules, and regulations. Naturally, it raised […]

Science historians say the Scientific Revolution began with Copernicus when he proposed the heliocentric system that the Earth orbits the Sun. I used to think it was not worth discussing because one in four Americans and one in three Russians think the opposite, namely the Ptolemaic view that it is an earth-centered, geocentric system.

A few years ago, I was invited to appear before Congress on the global warming issue. It was at the height of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) hysteria and the political games were hitting their stride.

There are two great moral and ethical issues confronting and dividing Americans, abortion and migration. Life, in its normally perverse way, offers a solution for both with a common theme, that is overlooked or ignored because people have such strong and often emotional opinions about each. It is unlikely they would entertain one being a […]

Chinese philosophy describes the yin and yang as apparently opposing forces that are just as likely to be complementary. It applies to the claim that if you have God you must have a devil. Dostoevsky underscores the idea in his book “Crime and Punishment.” Crime without punishment effectively means there is no crime. Of course, […]

My major research interest in climatology is historical climate, but particularly the impact of climate and climate change on human history and the human condition. Climatology was always part of geography because it studies the climate of a region and the change over time. This was subsumed by the growth of climate science in which […]

This article first appeared on www.therebel.media There is a global crisis of leadership. Mass migrations are underway because people are leaving badly run countries and entering equally badly run countries. It is not surprising because of the social situation in play at all levels. It is the result of living in Marshall McLuhan’s global village […]
