    The Weekly Standard ^ | August 2, 2014 | Stephen F. Hayes
    Moments of clarity often come when you least expect them. In a speech to contributors last week in Seattle, Barack Obama made the case that his presidency has made America better. In most respects, it was precisely the kind of political pablum you’d expect from a president who seems more concerned with legacy-polishing than governing. He ticked off his accomplishments, a list that was equal parts premature celebration (deficit reduction), hyperbole (Obamacare), and borrowed glory (rising college attendance, a strong stock market, increased energy production). Even if few in this fawning crowd were going to question him, circumstances required the...
  • What’s In A Name? Global Warming vs Climate Change

For example, the term “global warming” is associated with:......[ blahh, blahh, blahh... ]Our findings strongly suggest that the terms global warming and climate change are used differently and mean different things in the minds of many Americans....

    The US secretary of state, John Kerry, launched a new global effort on Wednesday to save oceans “under siege” from over-fishing, plastic pollution and climate change. Kerry said he hoped to build momentum for the protection effort at a two-day summit at the State Department next week. The 16-17 June gathering will for the first time bring together world leaders, business executives, scientists, and environmental activists in an attempt to deal with major threats to oceans. “Increasingly, the ocean is threatened,” Kerry told a small group of reporters at the State Department. “The world´s oceans, as vast as

    What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. A decade ago there was a wide range of predictions from the solar physics community about how strong the current cycle, No 24, would be. One list of 45 predictions ranged from a sunspot number of 50 at the low end to 190 at...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The world's top finance officials expressed confidence Saturday that the global economy finally has turned the corner to stronger growth. This time, they may be right. Despite challenges that include market jitters about the Federal Reserve's bond-buying slowdown and global tensions over Ukraine, policymakers said they believe there is a foundation for sustained growth that can provide jobs for the millions of people still looking for work five years after the worst recession since the Great Depression of the 1930s. "Creating a more dynamic, sustainable, balanced and job-rich global economy remains our paramount collective goal," the policy-setting...

    Wow. This was warped and offensive. New York Times columnist and author Thomas Friedman sited a debunked study to compare global warming deniers to Trotsky Marxists – then blames the Syrian revolution on global warming, not on Bashir Assad’s brutality. Let me put this in personal terms. Your son or daughter has a disease.

    There is no scientific evidence that human activity is causing the planet to warm, according to Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, who testified in front of a Senate committee on Tuesday. Moore argued that the current argument that the burning of fossil fuels is driving global warming over the past century lacks scientific evidence. He added that the Earth is in an unusually cold period and some warming would be a good thing. “There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100...

For years, this newsletter has tried to discredit this greenhouse gas as the villain behind warming; the effort was futile because of alarmist propaganda generated by the likes of Al Gore and the IPCC.2. Governments quickly perceived the crusade against carbon dioxide as an opportunity to impose greater control of economic activity, as well as involve the polity in another phony “war” — this time against certain behaviors said to provoke nasty climate change.

    “Deniers” like NTG have been saying for years that science does not support “warmers’” alarmism. Deniers claim that predictions of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) are the results of processing fudged data (read Montford’s The Hockey Stick Illusion) through biased models. Yet the warmers carry on, led by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Many scientists endorse the concept of AGW and insist that facts supporting it are available. Warmers are certainly in error when they predict catastrophic (or even less than catastrophic) warming caused by technology. Deniers have wisely avoided prediction as unreliable at best, and blatant charlatanism at worst;...

The White House and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio aren't the only ones calling for higher taxes (especially on the wealthy), as voices from the International Monetary Fund to billionaire investor Bill Gross increasingly make the case too.

    March 2013 will be remembered for its cold, miserable weather, and Environment Canada confirms that it ranked as the second-coldest March in the last 50 years. "It was so winter-like, my gosh it was even more winter-like than February," said David Phillips, chief meteorologist with Environment Canada. In Regina, the average daily temperature during March measured around -12.3 C. "The normal would be around -5 C," explained Phillips, "and I needn't remind you that last year, the temperature was close to 1 C. So think about it, (that's) 13 degrees colder than it was the year before."

Evidence unearthed by the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight puts the blame squarely on Corzine, the panel's chairman Rep. Randy Neugebauer, said in a preview of the report that will be released on Thursday.

    Just a few hours after being re-elected, President Obama encouraged the United States to support new United Nations discussions on a global treaty regulating guns and the gun industry. Supporters of the treaty believe the talks collapsed in July due to the campaign and Obama’s fears that Romney could use it against him. Now that the President has four more years in office, the White House is ready for the discussions to begin again. “While everybody is saying, you know he’s going to compromise. He’s going to get together with the Democrats and the Republicans, he’s going to reach across...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her Monday evening keynote speech at a Clinton Global Initiative event to push for a new global initiative: a tax on the world’s rich. “One of the issues that I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elites in every country,” Clinton said at the annual meeting of her husband’s global public policy organization. “It is a fact that around the world the elites of every country are making money,” Clinton continued. “There are rich people everywhere. And yet they do not contribute to...

    Egypt's top Muslim cleric on Saturday called for an international ban on all forms of attacks against Islam, after a controversial film allegedly triggered the recent wave of violent protests that have erupted in the Middle East and North Africa.

The resolution should "criminalize attacks on Islamic symbols and on those of other religions,...

    As a new session of the United Nations General Assembly got underway Tuesday, a State Department official reiterated the view that four years of the Obama administration have restored U.S. leadership in the world. America today is “more respected, more engaged and more secure” than it was when President Obama came to office in early 2009, Assistant Secretary Esther Brimmer told an event at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. As administration officials have done in the run-up to September’s UNGA session in previous years, Brimmer argued that its engagement with the world body has made the U.N.

    As the unstoppable cyborg in "The Terminator," Arnold Schwarzenegger made "I'll be back" part of the national lexicon. Nearly two years after leaving California's highest elected office, he's making good on the promise in a big way. The former Republican governor, who just turned 65, told The Chronicle that he will head up the Schwarzenegger Institute for Public Policy at University of Southern California, a think tank designed to explore "post-partisan" politics and global challenges. Among the luminaries working alongside him are former Mexican President Vicente Fox, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann, former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros...
