    Apparently carbon footprint taxes and wealth redistribution are not enough, we must adopt progressive social engineering of the planet “Give me your tired, your poor, 
 Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, 
 The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. 
 Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: 
 I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” - Emma Lazarus If you thought global warming scaremongering tactics went away with the most recent failed prediction for 2015 when we were supposed to be flooded and underwater, with little polar ice caps left, you would be mistaken. Writing for the...

    Acknowledging that the original Affordable Care Act "was so poorly written as to be utterly infeasible in its implementation," Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts took "the liberty of rewriting it to correct its deficiencies." "If we were to confine ourselves to the plain language of the statute, subsidies would be available to only those states that established their own health care exchanges," Roberts wrote. "In hindsight, relying upon the statutory text would doom the plan because only a minority of states established the required exchanges. Rather than allow Congress' inability to accurately forecast state behavior to undermine this signature...

    End of the American Dream ^ | 06/18/2015 | Michael Snyder
    Things have never been this dry for this long in the recorded history of the state of California, and this has created an unprecedented water crisis. At this point, 1,900 wells have already gone completely dry in California, and some communities are not receiving any more water at all. As you read this article, 100 percent of the state is in some stage of drought, and there has been so little precipitation this year that some young children have never actually seen rain. This is already the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state of California, but this...

    Concerned that the space allotted for on-board toilet facilities reduces the number of seats for passengers, the Boeing Corporation is converting all passenger seats on its 777-300ER into potty chairs. Every additional passenger a plane can carry adds badly needed revenue to the airlines bottom line, said Boeings public relations specialist Anita Crapper. We thought, if there were a way to convert the space set aside for restrooms into passenger seating it would permit airlines to earn thousands more per flight. By making every seat a potty chair airlines can achieve that objective. Ms. Crapper lauded this innovation as far...

Steven James Anderson's attorney argued at trial his client wasn't guilty of the Class B misdemeanor driving under the influence charge he faced after witnesses reported Anderson was driving the Zamboni erratically during a Fargo Davies girls hockey game against Williston at South Sports Arena.

    Texas' farmers were among the first to applaud the rain that abruptly halted a grueling multiyear drought that had tormented the region. But what began as a blessing has turned quickly into a disaster, as corn and wheat crops rot in flooded fields. "I think it is not all farmers, but some farmers are looking at a total loss for this year," said Mike Barnett, a spokesperson for the Texas Farm Bureau. "You have some situations where farmers had a bumper crop, and now they have next to nothing for the season." The downpour has doused Texas with 35 trillion...

As partial proof, Root explained, Global warming is real and is warping Americans brains. Either that or Democrats are really, really dumb. They voted for Barack Obama . twice. They think our...

    Texas is experiencing massive flooding and there's more rain on the way. Five people are dead, a dozen are missing, and 80,000 are without electricity. But at least one group will be taken care of despite this mayhem: Texas' shelter animals. Animal care facilities have, of course, been affected as well, so area shelters put out the call on social media that they needed help finding dry homes for displaced animals. Austin Animal Center made its adoptions free in order to get these pets out of the unsatisfactory conditions caused by the weather.

Social scientists are now attempting to assess the economic and political price societies are likely to pay for turning up our planets thermostat. The security policy community is especially eager for an answer. In the academy, the debate over climate change and its security implications gained momentum after researchers from Stanford, the University of California Berkeley, New York University, and Harvard observed that civil wars were more prevalent during years that experience hotter temperatures. The chief explanation for this relationship is that higher temperatures...

    What can be done to ignore a government determined to lie to everyone about a threat that does not exist? Not much. Let us begin with the understanding that there is no connection between the climate and health. The climate is something measured in decades and centuries, so what happened in the last century has nothing to do with whether you are sneezing today. The weather surely can help generate health problems. For example in the northeastern states, the Lyme disease season is beginning. Between 1992 and 2010 reported cases of Lyme disease doubled to nearly 23,000 according to the...

But this problem may shortly be solved, thanks to global warming.

    The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time. Like the Dalton Minimum and Sprer Minimum, the Maunder Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures. During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, astronomers observed only about 50 sunspots, as opposed to a more typical 40,000-50,000 spots.

    I stumbled across this website and just had to share it with my fellow FReepers. Back in the late 1980's I saw a documentary that scared the bubbles out of me. In this documentary, I was informed that, by the year 2000, more than half of humanity would be dead and the rest would be roasting and starving in a Mad Max type desert. Before that, I was told that we'd be freezing and that glaciers would reach all the way to Mississippi. Over the years, I've become immune to these predictions and I've learned to take such things with...

    The White House Science and Technology Advisor, says an initiative is underway with the goal of ensuring a climate smart citizenry in the United States. In December of last year the White House Climate Education and Literacy Initiative was launched--with the goal of ensuring a climate smart citizenry in the United States, Dr. John Holdren says in a White House video released last week. Whenever I can I use opportunities like this Ask Dr. H initiative to communicate about climate change and the strong scientific underpinnings of our actions to combat it. Based on our scientific understanding of climate change...

    In remarks to an inner cadre of the U.N.s Framework Convention on Climate Change, Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres, maintained that economic progress since the Industrial Revolution has gone too far. The Earth is in danger of being overrun by unconstrained prosperity. Capitalists like to contend that the increased life expectancies and material well-being of billions of people is some sort of proof that the system is a good thing, Figueres said. But they are wrong. Billions more humans living longer lives in greater luxury is a problem, not a benefit. There is no objective evidence proving that people living longer...

    Environmental global warmists and the United Nations: Promoters of communist utopia, unproductive but supposedly equal, socially just economy A blustery winter Hawk is blowing wind gusts of 60 mph and the temperatures are 15 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. It is not unusual, it is winter time, and the weather has alternated periods of extreme cold and unusual balmier temperatures. The global warmists, of course, are blaming it on man-made global warming. The climate change industrys golden goose is laying larger and larger eggs to those who stand to gain from this false narrative. And of course, the biggest gainers are...

    The west coast sees rising levels of ozone because of emissions from fast-developing Asian countries while the southeast sees increasing ozone from uncontrolled growth of the invasive species kudzu Thirty percent of the ozone- one of the primary components of photochemical smog found in the skies above the western United States during the spring- comes from coal-fired factories in East Asia (primarily China and India). (1) In about one week, winds carry ozone formed by emissions from cars, factories, and power plants in Asia to the US west coast, where it can add to locally generated pollution, worsening smog in...

    An investigator has found that the global warming crisis is based on years of systematically falsified temperature data. Given the amount of government money saturating climatology these days, this should come as no surprise. The climate science motto these days is, fake it til you make it.

    Why should we be surprised that the national media continues to report on global warming when our government has been engaged in the deliberate distortion of the actual data? When reporters forfeit their credibility by making up stories, sources, or quotes, we are right to mock them. When their violations are significant or repeated, they should be fired, says Charles Lipson, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago. Demanding honest reporting has nothing to do with the reporters politics, personality, or personal life. It is about professional standards and our reasonable expectations. Writing at Real Clear Politics,...

    The global warming religion is not above manipulating data to create converts. Just a few weeks ago they were declaring 2014 the hottest year on record, this despite the fact that most of the world actually cooled a touch. Now it has come to light that climate scientists have been manipulating temperature data by adjusting the actual data collected at weather stations across the world. Conveniently these scientists always adjust the temperature up. Theyve been doing this throughout South America and the Arctic. Theyre even doing it here in the United States. The fraud at this point is undeniable. Which...
