It was settled, except maybe not…

The cultists love to tell us about how the melting of the polar caps, but especially the Antarctic Glacier, validates their cult’s premise that man’s doing this, and not nature. I watched an episode of the heavily politically motivated Cosmos TV show just a week or two ago where they pushed their global warming agenda hard, playing fast and loose with the facts, and never mentioning as alternative energy to fossil fuels the only technology … Read more

From 9 to 8 to… 10?

WTF? After they demoted Pluto to a planetoid, are they about to tell us that there are two other planets in our solar system? Remember when they told us we had 9 planets in our solar system and that was settled? Let me tell you something: science is never settled. What will they call these 2 big planets out so far from the sun that they probably make Pluto look like the tropics? Maybe … Read more

Well, DUH!

Becoming a doctor is not an easy thing to do. You have to be gifted with a lot of mental acumen, work like a dog to have the grades to get into Med school (unless you can ride the affirmative action bus it seems), and have the constitution of a bull to make it through the internship process. And you pay through the nose to have this experience. It’s not uncommon for someone to finish … Read more

They have been doing that for 5 years now!

What’s the “THAT” that I am referring to? I wrote before about that snow job they tried to use to hide the damage done by the left’s policies. Well, others are also pointing out that the members of the DNC controlled LSM have been desperately spinning ever worsening economic data in order to help their incompetent marxists-fascist nanny stater fellow travelers ruining the economy from receiving their due:

The big news Thursday was that

Cultist caught lying & manipulating science they don’t like – again

Earlier this week I read about how one of the more renown former proponents of the AGW-mageddon preached by the cultist was rail-roaded for no longer being a true believer, but didn’t write about it because it would be more of the same behavior you see the AGW cultists exhibit whenever someone leaves their plantation. However, as another revelation related to Lenart Bengtsson and research he and some colleagues that feel science should rule … Read more

Are we there yet?

While desperate democrats, worried about the well-deserved shellacking that should be coming their way in the election at the end of this year, are desperately pissing away tax payer dollars to ward off the disastrous consequences of their economic policies, the truth about how horrible the impact on said policies on the economy is can’t be hidden:

Despite adding more than 8 million people to the working-age population since 2007, total employment has

So I am not the only one that saw through the bullshit?

When I originally started seeing the minimally covered LSM spin about the seriously disappointing U.S. First Quarter Gross Domestic Product numbers, and stories like this one claiming the reason we only saw a 0.1% growth instead of the projected already crappy 1.2%, was the harsh winter, my bullshit detector went off. On the one hand the LSM has been trying real hard to pretend the past winter was not one of the nastiest, coldest, … Read more

A Real Earth Day

Ah, Earth Day. Usually, I use this space to mock the do-nothing feel-goodism that constitutes the bulk of the environmentalist movement. I’ll point out how they do things like “Earth Hour” where they turn out the lights and light up candles and actually do more damage to the environment in the process.

But this year, I want to do something different. I want to recognize the things that are benefiting the environment and truly making … Read more

NASA Has It’s Head In The Clouds

Apparently there are not enough stars to gaze at it or space to explore. Those wacky scientists, not the least bit concerned that their days might be numbered and they might have to go out and get real jobs, have decided to go into the socio-economic business, and their progressive slip is showing;

Few think Western civilization is on the brink of collapse—but it’s also doubtful the Romans and Mesopotamians saw their own demise

Echoes of the Big Bang

The Universe got a little more amazing today. Thirty years ago, the theory of cosmic inflation was proposed. The idea is that, for about one billion billion billion billionth of a second, the universe expanded faster than the speed of light.

The inflationary theory explained a lot of things, such as the remarkable smoothness of the universe. And it had some interesting implications, such as the potential existence of other universes, perhaps with different laws … Read more
