Can Climate Models Predict Climate Change?

 The phrase climate change is leftist speak for… the weather. As in: “Everyone talks about the weather but no one does anything about it.” This latest leftist hysteria is an elaborate ruse to grow government and impose mountains of new regulations and ever heavier taxes on the American people. Does anyone remember Paul Ehrlich’s […]

The Crazy Man on Ocean Parkway is Back!

When I was a child, there was a bum — a homeless, schizophrenic, alcoholic, malodorous, hysterical bum — who used to show up on Ocean Parkway and Avenue N in Brooklyn, my neighborhood, my hometown, my world, my universe.

The Church of Climate Change

The astute blogger Bookworm Room has just published an important essay by our mutual friend Wolf Howling about so-called climate change, a leftist religion that seeks to enforce its dogma on a global scale. The climate-change movement brooks no dissent; its green inquisition will not hesitate to destroy the reputations and livelihoods of any who […]

New York Times Predicts The End of Snow and Other Progressive Delusions

The one defining characteristic of the left is their refusal to recognize evil, much less fight it. It views genuine threats to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — such as communism — as ignorant, xenophobic preoccupations, and lectures us that the true dangers lie elsewhere: in capitalism, colonialism, racism, gender discrimination… the usual […]

Climate Change = People Control

Barack Hussein Obama is set to deliver a, sigh, major speech (does this man ever deliver minor speeches?) about so-called climate change. Whatever happened to Global Warming? And gee, back in the ice age of 1977, Time published a cover story about global cooling and the impending, y’know, Ice Age.

Green Wrap, Red Agenda

My friend David Horowitz calls them watermelons. The collapse of world communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall… added to the trend toward extremism. The Cold War was over and the peace movement was largely disbanded. The peace movement had been mainly Western-based and anti-American in its leanings. Many of its members moved into […]

Good News: Seas Not Rising, Bad News: Congo Is Sinking

I’m shocked. Just shocked. Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings. The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel […]

Climate Meltdown

From planet San Francisco: Seven months ago SFGate reported: The Bay Area just had its foggiest May in 50 years. And thanks to global warming, it’s about to get even foggier. That’s the conclusion of several state researchers, whose soon-to-be-published study predicts that even with average temperatures on the rise, the mercury won’t be soaring […]

Brown Shirts in Green

Several weeks ago, Karen and I visited old and beloved friends in New Jersey. A long-married couple, our friends are Democrats, but that has never diminished our affection and loyalty. Usually, we don’t discuss politics, but the issue of so-called global warming came up. When Karen and I expressed skepticism, our friends were, literally, horrified. […]

The Monsters of Copenhagen

I don’t remember when I first heard the term “climate-change denier” but I do remember that I experienced the chill of fear. As we know, the left is adept at coining catchy phrases, bumper stickers that are easy to remember, and though dumb in the extreme, give off an air of political wisdom. For example: […]

I’m Leaving on a (Reasonably Safe) Jet Plane

Air travel brought to you by the, ahem, scientists, at U. of East Anglia. So Karen and I are about to stuff ourselves into a steel tube that will travel at over 500 mph at an altitude of 33,000 feet. I have no idea what keeps us in the air. Yes, I am that ignorant. […]
