2011 and climate alarmism.


We’re nearly at year’s end and in the fight against climate alarmism, it can only be called a vintage year. This was supposed to be the year when they thought they would regain the initiative but it’s only served to confirm how jaded people are with it all. Al Gore’s Climate Reality Event was intended to … Continue reading

The Al Gore Climate Reality Event : A call to arms.


There’s an interesting proposal being made at Anthony Watt’s site WUWT to fight the upcoming Al Gore Climate Reality Event scheduled for Sept. 14th 2011. In essence, it suggests setting up a central resource which will contain quotes by global warming high priests. What’s being called for is your participation in digging out appropriate quotes with … Continue reading

Another body floats by.


The Japanese have a proverb; if you sit by the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy float by.

A decisive minority of idiots, fashionistas and the innocent.


Politics is all about getting voted into power. If you don’t get voted in, you’re a loser – that’s it. There are no prizes for second place; it’s defeat any way you cut it. All political analysis starts and ends with that. No matter how high-principled a politician is, that’s the imperative they’ve got to work … Continue reading

The MSM and Climate Alarmism

Get the shot, McNulty.

The supine coverage by the MSM (Main Stream Media) of all things anti-alarmist is completely in tune with their complete failure to cover the Climategate scandal. It’s in line with what the late journalist Walter Cronkite observed (I believe it was him). Of all the kinds of censorship, the most pernicious is self-censorship. Since they’re convinced that: … Continue reading
