  • Scent-Killing Machine Could Be Sweet Choice for Terrorists

    Would-be homicide bombers looking to skirt the keen noses of bomb-sniffing dogs can find everything they need at their local hunting store. There, for about $300, they can buy a compact ozone machine that hunters use to mask human smells. It's a fairly low-tech device that will enable them to walk undetected past the K-9 units stationed to sniff out explosives at airports, train stations and bus depots.

    John McCain should tell his daughter to shut up if he doesn’t want to be completely outed as the RINO that he is. At least Meghan speaks the truth while her dad goes on lying to the good people in Arizona trying to convince them that they simply misunderstand his voting record. This is just like Jimmy Carter’s problem with Billy. Just like Meghan, Billy told the truth about what Jimma really thought. I guess McRino still thinks he can win elections by allowing his Bimbo daughter to do interviews on the View. I hope the people of Arizona have...

  • Asian pollution worsens US air levels: study

    AFP on Yahoo ^ | 1/20/10 | AFP
    PARIS (AFP) – Pollution from Asia is boosting levels of ozone in the skies above the western United States, a trend that could hamper US efforts to meet tougher smog standards, experts said on Wednesday. Their study focuses on data for ozone in springtime above western North America at an altitude of between three and eight kilometers (two and five miles). This height is between the stratosphere -- where a thin layer of ozone helps to filter out dangerous ultra-violet light from the Sun -- and ground level, where ozone can be a bad hazard for people with cardiac or...

  • Laughing Gas Knocks Out CO2

    In the face of ever mounting evidence that CO2 is incapable of causing the level of global devastation prophesied by climate change catastrophists a new villain is being sought. The leading candidate is nitrous oxide (N2O), better known as laughing gas. A report in Science claims that N2O emissions are currently the single most important cause of ozone depletion and are expected to remain so throughout the 21st century. The IPCC rates N2O as 310 times as potent a greenhouse gas as CO2 on a 100 year time scale. Is this a greenhouse gas bait and switch, or are the...

    Climate Change: A team of international scientists has finally figured out why sunspots have a dramatic effect on the weather. It shows the folly of fearing the SUV while dismissing that thermonuclear furnace in the sky.Mankind once worshiped the sun. Now the world studiously ignores it as nations prepare to hammer out a successor to the failed Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2012, in Copenhagen in December. Something is indeed rotten in Denmark. Our own government is committed to fighting climate change whether it be though Son of Kyoto or our own growth-capping, job-killing cap-and-trade legislation known as Waxman-Markey. Despite...

    Ozone found in indoor environments reacts with human skin, potentially producing chemicals that irritate the skin and lungs, according to researchers in Austria and the US. The study, which is the first of its kind to be performed with humans, highlights the limitations of current methods used to assess indoor air quality.Trioxygen, or ozone, is present in low levels throughout the Earth's atmosphere. Ozone can find its way indoors, although it is also emitted by many devices including photocopiers and air cleaners. For this reason, past studies have investigated the effect of ozone in the office environment. However, these have all focused...

    I am fed up with the federal government and the liberal media trying to enforce their anti second-amendment agenda. In 2000, the socialist Michael Moore made his slanderous documentary which blamed all of us responsible gun owners and NRA members for the tragedy at Columbine. In 2004 the Democrats failed to put a very strong anti second amendment senator in the White House. In 2008, the republicans put up an anti second amendment presidential nominee and the Democrats put up the most extreme nominee and vice president since McGovern. The only hope us gun owners have is to support Palin...

    Dear Mr. Robinson: I've given the matter quite a bit of thought and have decided it is time to ZOT you. I was tempted when I noticed posters were allowed to insult anyone who disagreed with them; even more tempted when I saw new posters banned for asking questions, or expressing an opinion outside the mainstream - (though I must confess anyone adopting the screen name "Christ was killed by conservatives" was not going to last very long ! I'm sure he was referring to the Sanhedrin, but still...) When I saw your post today about getting "millions of people"...

    I've been hearing that some groups of people are not welcome at Free Republic anymore, but I didn't believe what I was hearing because that seems like the complete opposite of "Free". I've heard that supporters of Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, and more are no longer welcome to post at this site. This site is about uniting people together against the liberal onslaught that is ruining our country and we could use all the help we can get right? Please correct me so I can correct others who have told me that this is...
  • The Space Shuttle Tragedy's Green Connection

    The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, said in July that it had found the "smoking gun" that caused the space shuttle Columbia to break apart as it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere on Feb. 1: a piece of foam that had peeled off the external fuel tank and struck the shuttle's wing 1 minute and 22 seconds after liftoff. But many experts looking at the tragedy that killed seven astronauts say there is a deeper cause. They say that the metaphorical smoking gun should be painted green. Because of demands that the agency help to front for...
  • Ecologists’ own goal: ozone saver is global warmer

    THE green movement’s greatest triumph – the abolition of ozone-destroying CFC gases in the 1980s – may become its biggest embarrassment because of research showing that their replacements are sharply accelerating global warming. CFC, or chlorofluorocarbon, gases were widely deployed in air-conditioning and refrigeration units before they were found to destroy the ozone layer and banned under the 1987 Montreal protocol. They were replaced by HFCs – hydrofluorocarbons – gases that have far less effect on ozone but have since been revealed as extremely powerful greenhouse gases. A ton of HFC23 used in refrigeration has the same global warming potential...

The findings, by scientists at the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and the U.S. space agency NASA, explain an apparent contradiction between a thaw of...
