    Violating universal human rights, Christians and other minorities in Syria are being threatened by militant Islamists. Convert or die! Christians must either; convert to Islam, or stay Christian and pay tax. If you default on any payment of these taxes, you could face death as punishment without trial. This is called a "dhimma", or taxes much like a protection agreement with Al Cappone during the thirties, you signed no contract. If you are a Christian and don't agree to this agreement, and don't pay your taxes then unfortunately you are "Faced with the Sword" and put to death. The "dhimma"...

    House passes bill affirming global warming exists By Richard Cowan 17 minutes ago The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, aiming to put an end to the debate over whether global warming is actually occurring, passed legislation recognizing the "reality" of climate change and providing money to work on the problem. By a vote of 272-155, the House approved an environmental funding bill for the fiscal year starting October 1 that would increase federal investments in basic research on climate change and establish a new commission to review scientific questions that need to be addressed. The White House has threatened...

    This is is a revealing piece from a former global warming supporter on the politically influenced global warming "science:" I devoted six years to carbon accounting, building models for the Australian government to estimate carbon emissions from land use change and forestry. When I started that job in 1999 the evidence that carbon emissions caused global warming seemed pretty conclusive, but since then new evidence has weakened that case. I am now skeptical.

    'Disastrous Effects' of Global Warming Tipping Points Near, According to New Study Even "moderate additional" greenhouse emissions are likely to push Earth past "critical tipping points" with "dangerous consequences for the planet," according to research conducted by NASA and the Columbia University Earth Institute. With just 10 more years of "business as usual" emissions from the burning of coal, oil and gas, says the NASA/Columbia paper, "it becomes impractical" to avoid "disastrous effects."

    If California wants to achieve its goal of cutting greenhouse-gas emissions 25 percent by 2020 to fight global warming, it must find a way to cut down the biggest source of those pollutants: cars, trucks and other motor vehicles. Even though transportation contributes 41 percent of greenhouse gases, our society is too geographically dispersed and mobile to realistically expect that we can dramatically reduce the number of miles we drive, ride and fly. So that means our vehicles need to become far more fuel-efficient. The less gasoline per mile that a car uses, the less heat-trapping carbon dioxide it spews...

Gore was to launch his national book tour with an event Tuesday night at the Wilshire Theatre in Beverly Hills. Gore was scheduled to share the stage with actor-satirist Harry Shearer before signing copies of "The Assault on Reason." Before the event, a line snaked around the front of the theater and the atmosphere was more in line with a campaign stop than a book signing. Attendees wore "Gore 2008"...

    April Temps in U.S. Below AverageI’ve heard GWFundies* somehow blame this on global warming, which leads me to believe they don’t understand weather cycles better than anyone else.Scientists Who Changed Their Mind on Global WarmingI didn’t think any “real” scientists were against man-made global warming?Man-made versus naturally produced greenhouse gas concentrationsSo if the vast majority of greenhouse gases are not man-made, how are we causing it?* I use “Global Warming Fundamentalists” to refer to those who don’t or won’t consider any evidence that in any way contradicts their belief that global warming is man-made.

    This generation is one that thrives on media publicity, and right now global warming is in the spotlight. From melting icecaps to rising temperatures and sea levels, global warming seems to be the hot topic. With the help of Al Gore's Academy Award-winning film, "An Inconvenient Truth," the issue of global warming has been projected from television screens worldwide, including those at Central York High School. Both Gregory Wimmer and Eric Webb, teachers of global studies and environmental sciences at Central, have used Gore's film as a teaching tool. "In a social studies classroom, "An Inconvenient Truth" allows for an...

    FUNNY HOW YOU DON'T HEAR THE PHRASE "GLOBAL WARMING" SO MUCH ANY MORE There is a new phrase, you know. Perhaps you didn't get the memo .. but what was once continually referred to as "global warming" is now just becoming "climate change." Why? Well, I suppose a few record cold winters around the world have made it a bit harder for the left and the eco-cultists to push the "warming" bit. Besides, as more and more is written more people come to understand that we're in a period of increased solar activity, and even those educated in government schools...

    WASHINGTON — The Republican Party is hitting back at Vice President Gore over his scathing new attack on the Bush administration, suggesting that the former and perhaps future presidential candidate is trying to "reinvent" himself after failing to confront terrorism as a member of the Clinton White House. Mr. Gore has begun a nationwide publicity tour for his new book, "The Assault on Reason," in which he bemoans the cheapening of public discourse while levying what may be the most serious charges any leading Democrat has made against the Bush administration. The 2000 Democratic presidential nominee, who has not ruled...

    Several numbers associated with global warming just don't seem to add up: or, maybe they can't add up at all, if the claims made by many liberal extremists associated with the man-induced global warming tax increases are right. The liberal extremists are claiming that (1) global warming is caused by increased CO2 levels, that these increased CO2 levels are caused by man, and that we should dratically harm our Western European/American/Japanese economies to eliminate/cut back CO2 emissions to 1990 levels to prevent this CO2 increase. Or lower. I'll give what few background numbers are available, ask the logical question coming...

    Former Vice President Al Gore is harshly critical of President Bush in his new book, "The Assault on Reason," in which he claims that "the current White House has engaged in an unprecedented and sustained campaign of mass deception." In an interview with ABC News, Gore goes one step further on the war in Iraq, calling it "the worst strategic mistake in the whole history of the United States." However, Gore refuses to place the blame squarely on Bush. "When our country made a decision to invade Iraq, it's too partisan to simply blame that on the current president," he...

    With great fanfare, in March, Al Gore took Capitol Hill like a conquering hero as he testified on Global Warming before both houses of Congress. Fresh from conquests at the Academy Awards where his adoring Hollywood elites showered him with coveted golden statues for spreading their favorite propaganda, Gore was determined to turn his personal conquest into draconian federal law and ultimate human misery. Gore's words to Congress were predictable. The earth is warming. The polar ice caps are melting. Polar bears are on the run. And it's man's fault. Solution? Ban or control human activities. The mantra of the...

    First it was his world history class. Then he saw it in his economics class. And his world issues class. And his environment class. In total, 18-year-old McKenzie, a Northern Ontario high schooler, says he has had the film An Inconvenient Truth shown to him by four different teachers this year. "I really don't understand why they keep showing it," says McKenzie (his parents asked that his last name not be used). "I've spoken to the principal about it, and he said that teachers are instructed to present it as a debate. But every time we've seen it, well, one...

    One afternoon in February, Al Gore was waiting to board a commercial flight from Nashville to Miami, where he was to deliver the slide show that forms the basis of “An Inconvenient Truth,” his Academy Award-winning documentary on global warming. Gore was telling me about Ilya Prigogine, a Belgian chemist who won a Nobel Prize in 1977 for his insights into the thermodynamics of open systems, an intriguing subject that has very little to do with global warming. Every minute or so he flashed a microgrin at a passer-by without interrupting his oratorical flow... --snip-- Live Earth is only the...
