Environmentalism: A Cult with a Ponzi Scheme

A long time ago, somebody figured out that people were afraid of nature. With this realization, our subject set out to carve a statue of a woman with a horned head dress, and declared the idol to be Ninhursag, the goddess of the earth. Our carver then set about...

George Monbiot Attempts Damage Control on AGW

george_monbiot_140x140 George Monbiot, who is likely the biggest global warming propagandist in the press today, looks at the Global Warming emails that have been the topic of so much discussion lately and admits:
It’s no use pretending this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.
The trouble is, he’s still playing the party line:
Yes, the messages were obtained illegally.
As I told you yesterday and Friday, as well, I suspect this was an inside job, and there is no credible evidence that suggests that the messages were illegally obtained.

That the patently unproven and risky hypothesis that humans, are creating environmental change on a global scale, is now becoming a point of agreement by some of those arguing on the left and right about how to deal with "global warming", is alarming. In a pair of pieces presented in the Wall Street Journal today, Ian McEwan and Bjørn Lomborg present differing perspectives on how to deal with global warming. But they are not the typical side of the discussion we've had in the past. The perspectives shown here are answers to the question "What should Obama do about Global Warming?". McEwan, well known for his works of fiction, extends those skills to the front of the Weekend Journal section. He expresses[...]

WALL-E: Political Non-Event, Fun For All

As mentioned the other day, we went to see WALL-E (which stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth Class) Tuesday night.  Although the underlying message is clearly “Take Care Of The Earth”, I don’t think I was not led to see it as a...
