  • When in Paris… President Obama has a ‘working dinner’ at three-star eatery

    As working dinners go, President Obama's meal Monday night in Paris with French President Francois Hollande, Secretary of State John Kerry and others wasn't too shabby. No cartons of takeout -- instead, the gang fueled up after a long day of climate talks at L'Ambroisie, the three-Michelin-starred temple of gastronomie in the Marais neighborhood. Per the Michelin Guide, the ornately be-chandelier-ed dining room is known for "incomparable classicism and an immortal feast for the senses." Perhaps worried that Obama would create an international faux pas by ordering a burger or a margarita (two of his faves), a reporter asked what...
  • Why Does Global Warming Only Turn Muslims Into Terrorists?

    Global warming is the cause of terrorism in the Middle East and around the world according to Martin O'Malley, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, and other Democrats. Let's add in the Prince of Wales. With a straight face they make this claim, ignoring any and all other evidence to the contrary. But if that is so, if global warming causes terrorism, then I think the Democrats need to answer this question: why does global warming only turn Muslims into terrorists? There are Jews in the Middle East and Africa. There are Christians in the Middle East and Africa. There are animists,...

    (watch video at link) ISIS has taken responsibility for the horrifying attacks in Paris that have left more than 150 dead and hundreds wounded. French President Francois Hollande is calling for the closure of his country's borders. President Barack Obama didn't condemn Islamic radicals for the attacks, but he did call them "an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians" and "an attack on all of humanity and the universal values we share." Friday's deadly attacks thwarted Al Gore's long-planned Paris webcast and star-studded concert to promote climate change awareness. "Out of solidarity with the French people and the City...

    With many analysts predicting that the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris will fail to produce an ambitious, binding global agreement, President Obama is hoping to come to the rescue. He does not want a repeat of the 2009 UN confab in Copenhagen, where he was roundly dissed by his green supporters for "failing to seal the deal." The president has loads of friends on Wall Street. As the grand sugar daddy handing out corporate welfare, Obama has taken the White House pay-to-play game to new stratospheric levels, as even many of his media allies and erstwhile supporters...

    With the start of the UN's Climate Summit in Paris only three weeks away, global warming alarmists are in a panic, but opinion polls show most people are not that concerned about the issue. Perhaps that is because more people are becoming aware that, despite the non-stop fright peddling by politicians and media commentators, there has been no measurable global warming for nearly 19 years. As we warned would happen over a year ago (Desperate Dash of Global Warming”), the global warming alarmists are desperately amping up their shrill warnings, in the hopes of creating support for the UN agenda..At...

We are now hearing things which under normal circumstances would be considered downright crazy talk.

    LaGuardia Airport is about to be rebuilt in New York City, but by the end of the century, fish could be swimming where airplanes once parked at the terminal.

New York State environment officials announced Friday that they’re creating new sea level rise regulations that will help coastal communities build more resilient homes and other buildings that will be better able to withstand storm surges and other flooding made...

    When youre dealing with one of the most controversial debates in modern history, a little tact is in order. Or at least it should be with global warming, because contrary to popular opinion, it is not a settled science. While the majority of people in most countries believe that its happening, many of them dont think that its being caused by human behavior. And dont believe anyone who tells you that there is a consensus in the scientific community. The oft-repeated statistic that claims 97% of scientists believe in man-made global warming, is a joke. That number can be tied...

    This week, our beloved leader, no doubt in an effort to hide from the realities of his race-baiting policies, went to Alaska to lecture us about global warmingagain. Carrying on with his usual doomsday rhetoric, President Obama warned of rising seas, more intense storms, abandoned towns, and climate refugees spread across the globe. Never mind that there has been no warming for the last nineteen years.

    The White House is in a state of shock today after receiving word that the US is halfway to a new recession. They were so dazed, they actually blamed Man Made Global Cooling. The GDP for the first quarter was originally announced as a gain of .2%. Today that number was revised to a drop of .7%. The definition of a recession is when the GDP comes in at a negative number for two quarters in a row. That means we are officially halfway to a new recession. The delicious irony is that after Obama decided to honor our troops...

    A grass-roots offshoot of a progressive, social changemaker nonprofit is petitioning newspapers and other media to begin referring to climate change skeptics as deniers by default. Forecast the Facts, a climate change activism project of a larger nonprofit called the Citizen Engagement Laboratory, argues that media types who use the general term skeptics are misleading the public on climate change: Some members of the media are still misleading the public by wrongly using the term skeptic. The New York Times, for example, recently called Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) a skeptic even though he believes that climate change is the...

This year, the rhetoric got harsh as in punish-the-deniers harsh.

    KILLER freezes, floods and heatwaves will devastate Britain during the next 30 years, climate experts have warned. Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt obliged to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

    In 2007 advocates of global warming at the BBC wrote an article titled Arctic summers ice-free by 2013[1] based on findings presented to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN led body that assesses the state of the Earth's climate. While the public has been bombarded with false data supporting the CO2 green house gas scare, nature seems to be taking its own stand in favor of the worlds skeptics. Inexplicably, an unpredicted frigid Arctic summer has covered an additional 533,000 square miles of ocean with ice resulting in an increase of twenty nine per cent in less...

    In the wake of a crushing defeat last week for the climate alarmism-promoting Australian Labor Party, which imposed the deeply unpopular and expensive carbon tax credited by analysts for the conservative coalitions victory, authorities in Australia are preparing to dismantle and consolidate the myriad global-warming schemes spawned under the previous government. However, while legislation is already being drafted, major hurdles remain before the tax on CO2 can be scrapped, sparking an outcry among businesses, state governments, and especially Australian voters, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of the new coalition and its pledge to kill the costly economic burden. According to...

The previously latest date record was March 25th, 2008. That...

    The debate over global warming is now entering the classroom and its proponents are alarmed.

    Modern science used to pride itself on its insistence on doubting everything and establishing the truth of things based on empirical data. Often the lone scientist would work hard against the common assumptions and make great breakthroughs and discoveries. It seems such ideas about science are becoming old-fashioned and romantic. Todays scientists are part of university establishments that must worry about their bottom line and prestige. Sometimes it is simply too controversial to doubt. Scientists are treated no different from other academics and are encouraged to tow the politically- or ecologically-correct party line to ensure their future careers. The most...

    The cold spring apparently has slowed sales of Minnesota fishing licenses. Sales through Monday are down 21 percent compared with the same time last year. "We think it's likely the cool spring weather,'' said Ed Boggess, DNR Fish and Wildlife Division director. "And last year we had an early, warm spring and sold a lot of licenses early.'' Sales are down just 9 percent from 2009 and are up about 1.5 percent from 2008, which was another cold spring, Boggess noted. The DNR had sold 344,189 licenses through Monday. Last year, the agency had sold 435,270 licenses.

Virginia Republican Delegate Bob Marshall of Prince William Co., the public interest law firm American Tradition Institute, and federal attorney David Schnare are asking the university to turn over documents they say contain important global warming research used by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to mold environmental policies worldwide. Cuccinelli originally requested the...

    It's impossible to open a magazine on any topic anymore without encountering a barrage of "tips" on how to live a greener life. Cooking magazines tell you how to carry on eco-friendly cooking. Computer magazines warn readers about the dangers of "vampire power" from their plugged in devices. Business publications lecture on carbon neutral business practices. Entertainment mags offer cackle on about celebrities and their ecologically friendly mansions. Anyone a century from now who picks up a present day magazine will assume that the people of the early 21st century spent all their time sorting compost and calculating their carbon...

    The global warmists are essentially pagans for whom the worship of Gaia, an Earth goddess If you want to know the core beliefs of those who gathered in Cancun, Mexico, for yet another Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) conference, you need look no further than the way one of its days began with a prayer to Ixchel, a Mayan Moon goddess. The global warmists are essentially pagans for whom the worship of Gaia, an Earth goddess of Greek origin, symbolizes their rejection of the Judeo-Christian values embraced by Western civilization. It is, by now, a clich to call environmentalism...

    Another United Nations Climate Change Conference has come and gone. This years Cancun Climate Conference didnt look to be a repeat of the disaster that was Copenhagen. For one thing, the UN chose the sunny, party beach capital of Mexico over the stately, old-world (and, oh yeah, cold) city of Copenhagen. The attitude at the conference was different too. Where the delegates arrived at Copenhagen with dreams of sweeping change dreams which, for the most part, turned into shattered illusions they descended on Cancun with smaller expectations in mind. And yet, even with what seemed like less at...

    As the United Nations opened its latest conference on global warming, Mother Nature sent snowstorms and freezing temperatures that disrupted travel all across Europe and much of the Northern Hemisphere. Even Cancun, Mexico's sunny resort city that hosted the confab, was not spared the chill. The UN summit, known as COP16 (the 16th Conference of Parties on global warming), concluded Saturday morning after an all-night marathon session. Cancun may not have experienced blizzards and ice, but it did, nevertheless, get hammered with record low temps for the month of December. Meteorologist Anthony Watts, who runs the global warming skeptic blog...

    Former Vice President Al Gore admitted Monday that his pivotal 1994 Senate vote for ethanol subsidies was bad policy but good politics. That says a lot about the reality of environmentalism in government. As the ethanol tax credit comes up for renewal in Congress on Dec. 31, it's worth noting it only came about because the vice president cast the decisive 51st vote in favor of it in 1994. At the time, he packaged it as a big move to preserve the environment in a market-friendly, sustainable manner, and for years defended his vote because it was supposedly good for...

    Here's a question to the global warming deniers who sarcastically called me a dope during last winter's back-to-back-to-back blizzards on the East Coast: Is it hot enough for you now? As temperatures topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit, breaking records in the nation's capital, and the pavement turned into a skillet, my thoughts raced back to the frigid days of last winter's "snow-pocalypse." Those were the days, you may recall, when Sen. James Inhofe, a proud Oklahoma Republican friend of the oil industry, and his family built an igloo on Capitol Hill and christened it "Al Gore's New Home." I might now...

    It's just a wasteful, reckless, unnecessary, ozone-destroying exercise Last Sunday, they ran the Coca-Cola 600 and the Indianapolis 500. That's about 1,100 unnecessary miles of tire treads wearing thin. My friends, auto racing is a road to nowhere. Ten years into a new millennium, it's time to put the exhaust pipes into an antique shop. It's time we engage in a new age of enlightenment, recognize auto racing as obsolete and end the around-the-oval madness. At the risk of being tossed out of the sports fraternity -- Who am I kidding? I was tossed out years ago; why do you...

    Pity the poor Climategaters. The staid were played. Gentlepersons were violated. And the billion-dollar global warming science complex can't compete with spunky skeptics. Those are some of the complaints registered in newly disclosed emails among members of the National Academy of Sciences, whose messages were mysteriously made public last week via the Washington Times. Some call it Climategate II; Whinergate is more apropos. Among their electronically-sent lamentations: "Most of our colleagues don't seem to grasp that we're not in a gentlepersons' debate, we're in a street fight against well-funded, merciless enemies who play by entirely different rules," said Paul...

    The Earth is warming, which is changing weather patterns and often causing localized weather volatility as opposed to localized warming. Extreme storms, droughts, intense rains, unusual amounts of snow or lack of snow are all signs of global warming. People know the weather is getting less predictable. They call it weird weather. This quote from Jonathan Rose, who is on the Natural Resources Defense Council, is utter scientific and factual rubbish. Consider his comment that, People know the weather is getting less predictable. No they dont, however, they are confused because they know weather forecasts beyond 72 hours never were...

    When I went around to the barnyard to look in on Henny-Penny, founder and recording secretary of The Holy Order of The Sky is Falling (Al Gore, Pontiff), I found her pacing about, with a steely look in her eyes. Me: You don't look happy. Ms. H-P: I'm not. I'm a free-range chicken and I am ranging this yard to think out a solution to a new threat to the human race. One of the Pontiff's people just called to tell me about a molecule that people overdose on and die of every day. We'll have to get the EPA...

    More than 100 manatees have been found dead in Florida waters since the beginning of the year, mostly victims of a nearly two-week cold snap. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says the preliminary cause of death for 77 of the endangered animals is cold stress. They were found from Jan. 1 through Jan. 23.
