David Rose: The Myth Of Global Meltown

Al Gore's predicted it would be ICE-FREE by now.  The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’ Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his      ... MORE

Walter E Williams: OK To Feel Sorry

The virtue of Dennis Rodman.         At one time in our nation's history, blacks feeling sorry for whites was verboten. That was portrayed in Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird." This is a novel published in 1960 — and later made into a movie — about Depression-era racial relations in the Deep South. The novel's    ... MORE

How Government Wasted Taxpayer Dollars In 2013

3-D pizza printing, pole dancing, the $100,000 outhouse ... The federal government spent $680 billion more than it took in during the 2013 fiscal year. But despite shutting down much of Washington in an argument over how much debt to rack up in 2014, Uncle Sam continues to green-light spending on projects that only their contractors     ... MORE

Wesley Pruden: A Global Warming Scam That Will Not Die

We were all supposed to be dead by now,      fried to a toasty potatolike chip. Or doomed to die with the polar bears. It was to be a soggy end for the most beautiful planet in the cosmos and for all the passengers riding on it. The global alarmists never quite got their story of fright and fear straight, whether by now we would be fried or  ... MORE

Warming Advocates Struggle To Explain ... No Warming

by Rick Moran.    We've known since Climategate and the emails from the East Anglia climate center that warming advocates have been well aware of the lack of rising temperatures on the earth since at least 2000. Now, confronted with irrefutable evidence from one of global warming's biggest boosters - NASA - scientists who have based their careers and     ... MORE

Patrick J. Michaels: Global Warming Apocalypse Cancelled

Inconvenient truth: no 21st century rise in temperature.    My greener friends are increasingly troubled by the lack of a rise in recent global surface temperatures. Using monthly data measured as the departure from long-term averages, there’s been no significant warming trend since the fall of 1996. In other words, we are now in our 17th ... MORE

Arvind Kumar: Fourteen Is The New Fifteen!

A little revision from the global warming cult. According to the leaders of the global warming doomsday cult, the average surface temperature of Earth is 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit), but this is a new value which has quietly replaced the original average of 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit). In March 1988, a few   ...

Russell Cook: Global Warming's Killer Is Critical Thinking

Let's require evidence, not just belief.    Is there any issue more dependent on widespread lapses in critical thinking than the idea of man-caused global warming? Nothing wrecks an argument faster than a question revealing a gaping hole in that argument's fundamental premise.  Notice the abundantly obvious derailment in this example: "We   ...

Record Set By Doctored Data, Not U.S. Temperatures

by James M. Taylor.   “Americans just lived through the hottest 12 months ever recorded, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Tuesday,” according to the May 15 Los Angeles Times. Which begs the question, what does “recorded” mean? To most people, the hottest temperatures ever “recorded” would imply that quality controlled  ...
