News of the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was only minutes old when global warming alarmism advocates began cheering.
My 5-year old, $1,200 KitchenAid dishwasher is leaking again because its third replacement motor is failing.
Secretary of State John Kerry made an astounding confession today at the COP-21 climate conference in Paris: Emissions cuts by the U.S. and other industrialized nations will make no difference to global climate, he said.
U.S. taxpayers have already spent about $200 billion over the last 20 or so years chasing the CO2-free energy fantasy. The only result has been the stark realization that, with the exception of hydropower, CO2-free energies simply cannot compete on an affordable and reliable basis with coal, oil and natural gas. Obama doesn’t seem to know that “renewable” energy is only as renewable as the government mandates and heavy taxpayer subsidies on which they rely.
At the end of September, Youngstown State University announced an upcoming November event with “Nobel Prize winner Michael Mann,” a Penn State professor and inventor of the infamous hockey (hokey?) stick graph. Michael Mann did not, in fact, win the Nobel Prize. Mann has, on multiple occasions, falsely claimed to be a Nobelist, including on the jacket of one of his books and in litigation with pundit Mark Steyn.
There is no question that Volkswagen should be in trouble for intentionally rigging its diesel engines to skirt U.S. emissions requirements. But EPA’s own diesel exhaust wrongs put VW’s in the shade. The EPA has for years quietly conducted flagrantly illegal scientific experiments in which diesel exhaust was pumped into the lungs of sick people and senior citizens.
I disagree with (euphemism alert) “liberals” all the time. But it has never occurred to me to attempt to silence them, jail them or worse. Too bad they can’t say the same thing.
