  • Global Warming “science” discovered to be founded on gross calculation error 1000s of reports false

    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/20/2018 | Mike Adams
    When the NY Times, Washington Post, CNN and other fact-challenged news outlets reported a few months ago that the oceans were warming at a catastrophic rate due to climate change, they all missed a glaring math error in the original science paper. The paper, co-authored by Ralph Keeling of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, was published in the science journal Nature. It erroneously claimed that ocean temperatures were skyrocketing at a rate that was 60 percent higher than the IPCC’s known rate of ocean temperature trends. But the paper suffered from a glaring mathematical error that has since been exposed....
  • Climate Priests Furious Over Report of Booming Polar Bear Population

    Godfather Politics ^ | 11/15/2018 | Warner Todd Huston
    The high priests of climate change are furious over a new Canadian government report saying that the polar bear population is booming and is endangering the native Inuit peoples living in the great white north. The new study finds that the polar bear population has grown so much that they are now competing with the native Inuit people living in the area. But the report runs contrary to what envirowackos continue to say over and over again. Enviros continue to claim that the polar bears are dying out because of global warming. So, this report is infuriating pushers of climate...

    DC Clothesline ^ | Michael Snyder
    Our sun has been behaving very strangely, and this unusual behavior is really starting to affect our weather patterns. There have been virtually no sunspots in 2018 as solar activity has dropped to alarmingly low levels. As a result, our atmosphere has been cooling and shrinking, and experts are warning that we are heading for a bitterly, bitterly cold winter. And even though the official start of winter is well over a month away, winter weather is already sweeping the nation. As you will see below, a giant winter storm is about to slam into the east coast, but what...

    Ice Age Now ^ | November 12, 2018
    “It could happen in a matter of months,” says Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center. ________________ “The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on 27 Sep 2018. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, editor of spaceweather.com. Data from NASA’s TIMED satellite show that the thermosphere (the uppermost layer of air around our planet) is cooling and shrinking, literally decreasing the radius of the atmosphere. To help track the latest developments, Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s...
  • ‘South Park’ characters apologize to Al Gore for mocking him over climate change: ‘Say you’re sorry’

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...
  • Let Daylight Saving Time Die Already

    Reason ^ | November 2, 2018 | Zuri Davis
    Everyone not named Franklin D. Roosevelt hates Daylight Saving Time. The constant back and forth is confusing, especially for those who have an early Sunday morning commitment. The Standard Time Act of 1918 gave the federal government power to oversee national time zones. That power was extended with the passage of the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which allows the Department of Transportation (DOT) to set Daylight Saving Time for the entire country. Why DOT? Because "time standards are important for many modes of transportation," or something like that. Despite decades of observance, however, more and more Americans are rebelling...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un fulfilled an agreement he made with President Trump at the Singapore summit in June to return 55 boxes of remains of Americans killed in the Korean War. It's only a tiny fraction of the nearly 5,300 still missing but for at least one family, it provided closure. A faded photo is one of the few memories Charles McDaniel has of his father. He was just three years old when Master Sgt. Charles McDaniel went off to the Korean War and vanished without a trace. "He disappeared from history. I mean he was just gone....

    There are plenty of cloud providers that are equipped to bid for the Pentagon’s contract This year, hackers seem to be having a field day accessing our personal data. Google exposed hundreds of thousands of users data on its Google+ social network. Facebook was attacked and hackers gained access to the personal data of some 30 million users. Yet, these strikes pale in comparison to what is perhaps the most serious concern: Chinese manufacturers has been installing micro spy chips inside servers. This recent discovery raises many red flags as to China’s ability to hack into our secret government computers...

    ABC News ^ | October 18, 2018 | Chris Francescani
    Does Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren really have Native American blood running through her veins? It's scientifically impossible to know for sure, according to a collection of leading geneticists, industry experts, research scientists with expertise in indigenous genetics and Native American leaders who spoke with ABC News. The process of tracing one's ancestry is still evolving, geneticists told ABC News, and efforts to establish genetic affiliation with an indigenous group like Native Americans are at best thorny and uncertain, and, in the extreme, offensive. Some experts were critical of Warren's press conference this week and her latest declarations. Numerous experts also...

    The self-proclaimed Climate Prophets who claim they can predict climate years in advance are either deliberately lying or incredibly stupid. Weather related scientists don't know enough about the factors that control daily weather to make more than approximate predictions of short term weather. How can anyone believe weather scientists can accurately predict weather decades in advance? If you look at a Weather Bureau forecast you will notice that if it predicts the possibility of rain the prediction will show the probability of rain as a percentage. The probability of rain might by 20% or maybe 60%. Meteorologists know rain can...

    On Monday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn was joined by author and mathematician Dr. James A. Lindsay to discuss a series of fake “grievance studies” that he and cohorts Peter Boghossian and Helen Pluckrose penned in order to test the extent of political bias in left-wing academic circles. Lindsay, Boghossian (an assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University), and Pluckrose (editor-in-chief of Areo Magazine) wrote an op-ed for USA Today titled, “From dog rape to white men in chains: We fooled the biased academic left with fake studies” in which they spelled out the purpose, method...

    The hunt for potentially habitable planets outside of our solar system is one of the most exciting frontiers of science, and you can become a part of it without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home. This week, MIT and Carnegie Science Institute released a huge dataset containing close to 61,000 measurements of over 1600 stars. These measurements contain data that could potentially identify thousands of new exoplanets, many of which might be Earth-like in their nature. Unfortunately, the MIT and Carnegie Institute team simply doesn’t have the capacity to trawl through all of this information,...

    SEOUL, Oct. 11 (Yonhap) -- More than 48,000 foreigners came to South Korea last year to get cosmetic surgery, spending some 215 billion won (US$189.12 million), health ministry data showed on Thursday. The numbers provided to Rep. Nam In-soon of the ruling Democratic Party for a parliamentary audit showed 397,882 foreign patients visited South Korea last year and paid 639.9 billion won in medical fees. The numbers are down 6.5 percent for the volume of patients and down 25.6 percent for the amount of money spent. Corresponding figures for plastic surgery patients, however, increased. There were 968 more foreigners who...

    March of the Shrieking Uglies will continue on unless and until they are treated accordingly, with not just our disdain, but with our laws The hysterics the past few weeks has indeed not weathered well on America’s so-called feminists who demonstrated once again that they allow feelings to rule over rational thought and logic, in their devotion of Alinsky “means-to-an-end” tactics. In their attempt to run SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh out of Dodge by protesting his confirmation hearings, their antics have shown just how ridiculous, nonsensical and preposterous they are.

    global warming religion ^ | 10/05/18 | Reasonmclucus
    The people who want to sequester carbon dioxide (CO2) don't understand the biosphere. Carbon and oxygen are two of the most important elements for biological life. 65% of the human body is oxygen and 18.5% is carbon. Plants are carbon structures with the percentage of carbon varying according to the type of plant. The CO2 oxygen cycle is critical to the functioning of the biosphere. Animals exhale CO2 which plants then use to produce the molecules such as sugars and starches that animals use for food. Plants release oxygen into the air which animals inhale and combine with the carbon...

    global warming religion ^ | 10/04/18 | Reasonmclucus
    The claim that carbon dioxide (CO2) can increase air temperatures by "trapping" infrared radiation (IR) ignores the fact that in 1909 physicist R.W. Wood disproved the popular 19th Century thesis that greenhouses stayed warm by trapping IR. Unfortunately, many people who claim to be scientists are unaware of Wood's experiment which was originally published in the Philosophical magazine , 1909, vol 17, p319-320. Philosophical Magazine might not sound like the name of a science publication, but a century ago leading scientists published their discoveries in it. During the early 19th Century many physicists supported the theory postulated by Benjamin Franklin...
