Scientists Call a Halt to Overselling Calamities

Respected scientists are complaining about reports that are overselling calamities. When Nature magazine runs an editorial about it, the problem has to be growing to an embarrassing size. Bob Tisdale guest posted about the problem at the climate change skeptic website, Watts Up with That. He quotes Nature: The state of the world’s seas is often painted as verging on catastrophe. But although some challenges are very real, others have been vastly overstated, researchers claim in a review Read more […]

Al Gore: Global Warming May End Civilization As We Know It

As we’ve been reporting in the recent past, global warming just hasn’t progressed the way the priests of the church of climatology had hoped. No one is able to explain the blaring 15-year hiatus in warming that’s coincided with allegedly record CO2 emissions. How did that happen? I thought CO2 emissions are what has been causing the earth to warm up at the alarming rate of less than 1 degree Fahrenheit over the past century. They can offer their speculations, but that’s about it. Maybe Read more […]

Looming Sequestration Crisis: Schools Face .06% Budget Cuts

The sequestration cuts are set to start taking place this Friday. Obama and his team have been ranting about how these cuts are going to destroy government education, research and development and healthcare. If only that were the case. The proposed $85 billion to $1.2 trillion in across-the-board cuts will be spread over 10 years, and by the time the GOP compromises like the great team players that they are, it will be even less. And why is Obama’s team even blaming the GOP anyway? The sequestration Read more […]

5-Year-Old Threatened With Suspension For Lego “Gun”

The latest in toy gun control hysteria comes out of two schools, one in the Bronx and one in Hyannis, Massachusetts. A school in the Bronx was put on lockdown because a student told a school aide that another student had a gun. The principal notified the NYPD, and they came and conducted a search while the school was on lockdown for over an hour. Eventually, the cops located a Nerf gun that fires foam bullets. No news on whether it was a semi-automatic weapon or not. The other scare comes out Read more […]

Hello Kitty Bubble Gun Gets Kindergartner Suspended

When I was kid, we often played cowboys and Indians or cops and robbers, where we were always shooting at each other with our toy cap guns or pointing fingers.  When I was in high school, it was common for a number of students to have a gun rack in their trucks and one or two rifles in the gun rack.  No one thought anything about it, nor do I ever recall any reports of stolen guns. Today, too many Americans are getting paranoid about anything to do with guns.  After the tragedy of Sandy Hook, Read more […]

Global-Warming Fears Cooling Down Amidst New Data

America dodged a bullet in 2000 when we elected George W. Bush over Al Gore, I’m telling you what. Al Gore, who at this point will go down in history not as the 45th Vice President of the United States of America, but as a hapless neophyte weatherman so proficient in PowerPoint as to render him a prodigy, helped spread the fear (or at least attempted, as nobody remembers this anymore) that the northern polar ice caps could be entirely melted by the year 2012. I do not wish to be too hasty in Read more […]

NASA Warns Of Mayan Calendar Hysteria

NASA is warning that the Mayan calendar predictions about the end of the world on December 21st pose real threats to children and depressed teenagers. They don’t actually think that the world is going to end. They’re warning that rumors of an apocalypse may actually frighten young people to death. The Daily Mail reported:  “David Morrison, an astrobiologist at NASA Ames Research Center, said on Wednesday that he receives a large number of emails and letters from worried citizens, most often Read more […]
