Climate Science Breitbart gets social science wrong too (again …)

August 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Marc Morano is the Andrew Breitbart of the climate science world. Powerful packaging of material that doesn’t stand up well to any serious scrutiny. And, he has been very good at gaining lots of media and other attention with partial truths and utter mistruths about climate issues whether from his current “Climate Depot” [...]

Did John Kasich just become untenable as the Republican VP nominee?

April 10th, 2012 · No Comments

When it comes to choosing people for the VP slot on the ticket, there are many ‘rule sets’ that seem to be in play: does the candidate have dangerous baggage?
