    Doomsday Scenario: 'America Alone' Monday , October 23, 2006 This is a partial transcript from "The Journal Editorial Report," October 21, 2006, that has been edited for clarity. PAUL GIGOT, FOX HOST: "America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It" forecasts a dark future in which the nations of Old Europe fall to Islam fundamentalism. And the United States remains the last Western democracy. Earlier, I spoke to the author, columnist Mark Steyn. (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) GIGOT: In your book, you write that much of what we loosely call the "Western World will not survive the 21st Century....
  • The World We Know Is Ending(Mark Steyn)

    It's the end of the world!! Head for the hills!!! No, wait. Don't head for the hills—they're full of Islamist terrorist camps. Let me put it in a slightly bigger nutshell: much of what we loosely call the Western world will not survive the twenty-first century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most European countries. There'll probably still be a geographical area on the map marked as Italy or the Netherlands—probably—just as in Istanbul there's still a building known as Hagia Sophia, or St. Sophia's Cathedral. But it's not a cathedral; it's...

    All things must end. Life, matter, the universe itself — it seems that nothing is permanent. While discussing this topic on another FR thread tonight, I happened to wonder if it might not be fun to find out how the rest of you think it's all going to end up. To that end, I hereby announce the Apocalypse Contest. To play, simply write out your best guess at how the End of All Things will come about, especially with regard to the human race; then post it on this thread. A week from now I'll read all the entries (if...

    Can Wall Street withstand weak housing? Some experts say real estate slump may spell trouble for equities ANALYSIS By Peter Coy BusinessWeek Online Updated: 1:28 p.m. PT Sept 19, 2006 If your nest egg is made of 2-by-4s and you're watching the real estate slowdown with a mixture of fear and nausea, then this article is for you. The question: If real estate tanks, will stocks follow? Or will the market ignore housing? Or maybe — just maybe — will a decline in housing trigger a rise in stocks? It's something you really ought to think about if you're trying...

    'Global dimming' is darkening the globe: experts Updated Sat. Jul. 29 2006 10:07 AM ET Andy Johnson, News Global dimming may be the yin to global warming's yang. The theory is that the amount of sunlight, or solar energy, falling on the earth has been dropping steadily over the past 50 years or so. That could mean, scientists believe, that global dimming is actually mitigating the effects of global warming. That sounds quirky and intriguing at first, but a closer investigation turns up some frightening results. One of the first people to observe the phenomenon was an English scientist...

    Actress/singer Jada Pinkett Smith is horrified by increasing gun crime in the United States, declaring the country must look to third world countries to rediscover its values. The Wicked Wisdom frontwoman and her actor/rapper husband Will Smith have travelled to Africa on several occasions for charity work and have been humbled by citizens' appreciation of the basic things in life - like education. The Smiths will fund and appear at Charles 'Charlie Mack' Alston's annual Party 4 Peace in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania this weekend, which aims to raise awareness of street crime. Pinkett Smith says: "It's pretty bad everywhere. I think...

    OTTAWA (AFP) - Canada reportedly wants the Kyoto climate-change accord scrapped in favor of a separate, voluntary deal and will not support efforts to set stricter emissions targets from 2012. The Globe and Mail newspaper said it had obtained private Foreign Affairs Department instructions to Canadian negotiators in Bonn, Germany, where an international 10-day meeting opened this week to plot the second phase of the Kyoto Protocol. "The private instructions from the Foreign Affairs Department to the Canadian delegation show Canada will also oppose the widely held view that targets in the second phase, which begins after 2012, should be...

    Former Vice President Al Gore's whirlwind national campaign hit Denver on Thursday. His mission: promotion, officially as part of a press tour for his upcoming Paramount Classics film "An Inconvenient Truth" and a book of the same title. Unofficially, Gore is evangelizing a long-standing passion. The movie is based on a high-tech "slide show," as Gore calls it, which he estimates to have presented more than 1,000 times over the decades. With stunning animated graphics, Gore deliberately and often mercilessly presents the scientific basis for global warming, its current manifestations and the future risks of what he calls "the climate...

    MIAMI - Seven feet of sea water swamps 45 miles of coastline from Miami Beach through Fort Lauderdale to Deerfield Beach. Salt water surges through countless houses near the coast. Waist-deep fresh water blankets vast regions of suburbia. Ferocious winds crush tens of thousands of roofs and gut numerous office buildings. Residents who defy orders to evacuate skyscrapers along the coast and in downtown Miami could be blown out of their apartments. Power outages persist for months. According to simulations conducted for The Miami Herald by scientists at the National Hurricane Center and to interviews with a wide range of...

    In our urgency to deal with really urgent stuff over the past few weeks, we have been piling up news articles regarding what some regard as a universal urgency. That would be global warming or Global Warming or GLOBAL WARMING, depending on one's perspective, provided that one has a perspective. Bill Clinton, speaking last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that mother of all junkets for rich folks who take themselves very seriously, said that GLOBAL WARMING bothered him a bunch.

Maybe it's just a coincidence, but I see an ominous cloud on the horizon. Actually, I see a large mass of clouds and they're as black as night. Anyone who's invested in the stock market over the last three or four years has little or nothing to show for it and, if you're...
