Grenfell Tower and climate change

June 19th, 2017 · 1 Comment

A number of raving lunatics (is that too harsh a term …? probably not) are asserting that ‘climate alarmism’ (and other such delusional attack terms of those who understand climate science) is at fault for the horrific Grenfell Towers catastrophe. Twisting arguments beyond pretzel logic, here is an example the coroner may as well scribble […]

Courtesy of Omics Online’s “Environment Pollution & Climate Change”: a ‘refutation’ of centuries of science & emergent requirement for massive sprinkers?

May 16th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Sometimes the jaw dropping moments break through the floor. For U.S. national security professionals (and, well, anyone associated with intelligence in the United States or any allies), Donald Trump’s blustering blabbering of extremely sensitive material to the Russians is causing lots of jaws to break lots of flooring.  (Perhaps a good time to be in […]

Emergent Stalinism anti-#science from @TeamTrump

January 25th, 2017 · 3 Comments

“Climate Change” on Trump White House Core to #MAGA, @TeamTrump encompasses many of the worst anti-science pontificators and activists not just in the United States, but globally.  Core to this is climate science denial. Thus, as Trump (falsely) took the Oath of Office (and immediately became in violation of it due to the Emoluments Clause), […]

December 8th, 2013 · 2 Comments

we are all too often (faced by) anti-science by anecdote when we should be discussing options and making decisions on the basis of the evidence-based scientific method.

@OFA “Call Out Climate Change Deniers”

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” hat, supporting […]

Conspiracy Theorist Rush Dominates Media Coverage of Climate Change: Wonder why so many Americans are confused re science?

August 21st, 2012 · 2 Comments

This guest post comes from Richard Myers. Simply put, when conspiracy theorist buffoon, anti-science syndrome suffering, anti-clean energy oxycontin lover, guru of the Grand Oil Party, climate change disinformer of the year winner Rush Limbaugh touches more Americans on climate change science than the rest of the traditional media structure, we shouldn’t wonder why so many […]

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

April 10th, 2012 · Comments Off on Did John Kasich just become untenable as the Republican VP nominee?

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? (Read Sarah Palin.)  Can they handle media scrutiny and interviews? (Again, Sarah …)  Can they help deliver a battleground state?  (Again, Sarah …)  Do they […]

Get Your Own Climate Hockey Stick …

April 4th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Want to prod an anti-science syndrome sufferer into a vitriolic rampage, utter two words: “hockey stick”. And, want to see them turn red, add two more words: “Michael Mann”. Simply put, Dr. Michael Mann’s work on reconstructing temperature records using multiple sources provided a very telling demonstration of how (rapidly mounting) modern temperatures were entering […]

Obama’s Four-Letter Words and Cushing, Oklahoma

March 22nd, 2012 · 6 Comments

President Barack Obama is barnstorming the nation promoting his “all-of-the-above” energy policy. Watching this parade reinforces that ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Global Warming’ (let alone climate chaos or catastrophic climate chaos or …) appear to be banned four-letter phrases in the Obama Administation lexicon. Yesterday, the President was in Boulder City, Nevada, standing in front of a solar electricity […]
