Harry Reid was so surprised at the announcement from Stockholm that he sprayed a mouthful of hot coffee all over his carton of Marlboros...

I've been wondering if Central and Eastern Europe aren't preparing to have a sort of "Golden Age" during this century and the next, when they will emerge as an economic powerhouse and the prime defenders of Europe against the Islamic onslaught, while most of Western Europe sinks into decay. Given your experience, do. you think this is possible, or am I just wishful thinking?,

You aint just wishfull thinking !!! Eastern Europe being under the boot of communism for 50 years will be the vanguard again the Islamic onslaught and even to a lesser extent Russia if she gets past the ghost of Soviet Communism. Central and Eastern Europe will surpass the west as leaders so long as it does not fallback into socialism.

Look for the western banks to start loaning them money to wreck their economies. Just like they did in Africa. The West already has a good start in almost destroying the Serbs on the trumped up charge of "ethnic Cleansing". Remember that Clinton led that one !!!

Long live the people of Eastern Europe !!!

Lysenko was not a scientist, he was a charlatan who caused real scientists to be killed or sent to the gulags.

Yes he was scientist (biologist and agronomist) but a really pisspoor one.

However the wikipedia article does sound eerily familiar with today's AGW politically correctness and governmental punishment of scientists that dare not tote the AGW fantasy.

I think you cheapen the reputation of scientists by allowing someone of Lysenko’s nature to be included in that category. His theories did not follow scientific method, did not allow for testing and confirmation. His theories were just ‘talk’.

I have a godmother who is 88 years old, who escaped from East Germany in 1948 after having been tasked to be a translater for Russian Generals in Berlin. That is why she fled because she knew they would kill her after she came to know their correspondence.

The reason I mention that is that I think Lysenko, who was a peasant, was snagged by Stalin to be the point man on Soviet agriculture. If he failed he was dead. So he learned to make stuff up as he went along and to find someone to blame for the failures. Those people that he blamed were real scientists who were killed or sent to die in the gulags.

I think that characterizes Lysenko, a cowardly survivor.

Yes indeed, Lysenko and Gore share many of the same traits.

I have heard that Al Gore in one of his books wrote that children in Silesia, Poland are transported to underground coal mines to protect them from infected atmosphere in this region caused by industry. This statement place him somewhere between Grimm brothers and Ron Hubard. Either he is an idiot or treat this nonsense as a good business exploiting ignorance of public opinion.

Wasn’t there lots of talk about Bore spending googles of dollars on campaigning to get this prize? If so I’d like to hear more about it.
