Klein Pushes for A Dirtier Planet

Naomi Klein has a new book out. Having failed to rally the forces of socialism with No Logo and The Shock Doctrine, she’s now saying that capitalism needs to go because it’s destroying the environment.

Yes, she is writing these words in 2014 as if this were a brand new thought. But the greens have been pushing this anti-capitalism line for fifty years. The anti-capitalist sentiment got so putrid that Patrick Moore … Read more

Who’ll Start the Rain?

California is in the grips of a very bad drought? How bad? This bad:

The current drought in California is not only the worst in modern history, but is among the worst in half a millennium. We know this by studying the growth rings of long-lived trees like the Giant Sequoias in the Sierra Nevada, and the Bristlecone pines in the White Mountains of eastern California. In fact, the state has weathered six very dry

Let Them Drive Electric

I’m not overly fond of the Tesla automobile. It’s publicly-supported rich man’s toy that hasn’t made huge technological strides but likes to pretend it has. And I’m dubious that it will ever be anything other than a curiosity. The last decade has seen big leaps in fuel efficiency in our automobile fleet. Part of this is because people are demanding and buying more efficient cars. A little bit of it is hybrids. And much more … Read more

Fake 3-D universe? (UPDATE: or worse?)

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory is about to start an unique experiment called the Holometer from which they hope to determine if we really live in a 2-D universe faking 3 dimensions or if the universe really is 3 -D.

Much like characters on a television show would not know that their seemingly 3 – D world exists only on a 2 – D screen, we could be clueless that our

How to Suck at Global Warming Policy

Er:

Anyone wanting to buy a powerful vacuum cleaner has only 10 days left to be certain of getting one – following new EU rules that come in next month.

From 1 September, companies in the EU will be banned from making or importing vacuum cleaners above 1600 watts.

The new European rules are part of the EU’s energy efficiency directive, designed to help tackle climate change.

The EU is claiming that this … Read more

Why tell little lies when you can get away with big ones?

While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more

We can’t get shit right!

But we are going to keep pretending we are not talking out of our collective government funding wanting asses. This stuff is just priceless.

From the comments:

Like Astrology, Marxism and Freudianism, Global Warming theory can “explain” anything, but predict NOTHING.

Pretty much sums it all up. It’s not a coincidence that the watermelons are all into the warming shit, when they stopped believing in the old religion and replaced god with an … Read more

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
