Despite the Hottest Year on Record, Global Warming Apologist Still Cries “No Warming”

“There has been essentially no global warming since 1998.” — S. Fred. Singer, December 29 2014

“Bullshit.” — NASA

Even S. Fred Singer, famous for his stretching of data to deny global warming, is having a hard time using 1998 any more; he has to insert the modifier “essentially” to his “no global warming” […]

Scythe For America?

I’ve learned this morning about a new British passion. Well, actually, it’s an old passion, but it’s newly reborn. I’m talking about the scythe.

The scythe is an ancient tool with a curved wooden handle and a long metal blade. Before gasoline-powered lawn mowers, the scythe was the tool people used to cut grass.

It’s […]

Is Dasani Pure, Or Not?

Someone handed me “a water” this afternoon. I like to have water, not “a water” in a bottle, but the person walked away to give other people “a water” before I could say no thank you. So, I took a look.

Here’s what I see on this bottle. It says that what’s inside is “purified […]

Did NASA Climatologist Just Say We Will Have Global Cooling?

Lisa Haven, writing for the right wing web site Before It’s News, predicts a wide range of disaster for 2015. She forecasts “the rise of a One World Religion, an economic collapse, policed streets, and more Biblical end times signs… riots, earthquakes and likely numerous deaths“.

As Deniers Cry “Global Cooling,” the Globe Warms in Autumn 2014

At the WyoSkeptic blog, a new post has been placed in the “global cooling” category, a category that contains dozens of entries. WyoSkeptic’s latest post “shows” that global warming cannot be happening because the town of Gillette, Wyoming shows little change from 1978-2014.

The difference between Gillette, Wyoming over the past 36 years and the […]

About That Global Cooling, Sir…

Recent headlines suggest that the global cooling meme is still hot:

The Coeur D’Alene Press – Global cooling to intensify in the next 15-20 years.

Breitbart News – Global Cooling: Fall Snowstorm Stalls Northeast

The Inquisitr – Vladimir Putin Has Russia Invading Ukraine Over Global Cooling

NewsMax – NASA Scientists Puzzled by Global Cooling on […]

Fred Upton Positions Himself For Success In An Era Of Oil Company Cash Abundance

Today, the House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing called:“Are We Positioning America for Success in an Era of Energy Abundance?”

The answer to that question found during the hearing may be largely determined by the success with which Chairman of the subcommittee, Fred Upton, has positioned himself to receive money from the […]

Challenge To Ben Carson Supporters On Climate Change

For a generation, Americans have disagreed about climate change. They have debated whether or not scientific data shows that Earth’s atmospheric temperatures are warming, and whether human activity is to blame.

Throughout it all, Americans have at least agreed on one thing: They have agreed that the issue of climate change is important to consider, […]

While Vicky Hartzler Fiddles, the Globe Burns: October 2014 was Hottest on Record

On November 2014, Republican member of Congress and global warming denier Vicky Hartzler noticed it was cold. This, she decided, was proof enough to ridicule the idea of global warming. So she took to Twitter:

 

Rep. Hartzler is in her 54th year on Earth. Someone so well-experienced with the seasons really should have […]

Roll Call: Who In Congress Voted In Favor Of Opening Private Medical Records To Big Government?

Chellie Pingree voted for the GOP Secret Science Reform Act. Perhaps Representative Pingree simply sees the way the wind is blowing, and is happy to go along with the rising tide of right wing politics in America, health, privacy and science be damned. […]

Roll Call: Anti-Environment Democrats Who Voted For The XL Pipeline – Including Donald Norcross

Two weeks ago, the Democratic Party lost ground in the House of Representatives, and lost control of the U.S. Senate. These losses were largely due to the inability of the Democratic Party to inspire voter turnout from the liberal political base that it has traditionally taken for granted.

Being taken for granted by the […]
