    Last week, the New York Times published an opinion piece by Karl W. Giberson and Randall J. Stephens — a physics professor and a history professor at Eastern Nazarene College — that takes evangelicals to task for being anti-intellectual, anti-reason, and anti-science. Their evidence: Evangelicals doubt man-made global warming. Evangelicals believe that gays can “pray away” their homosexuality. Evangelicals believe the earth is only thousands of years old and that men lived alongside dinosaurs. Evangelicals oppose same-sex marriage. It is worth analyzing these charges, given how often they are made. With regard to man-made global warming, the charge that all...

    Could the global warming hypothesis meet the rigorous evidentiary standards of a legal trial? The answer, according to Jason Scott Johnston, is clearly negative. Johnston is the Robert G. Fuller, Jr. Professor of Law, and Director of the Program on Law, Environment and Economy of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. His 79 page essay, Global Warming Advocacy Science: A Cross Examination, published by the Institute of Law and Economics, examines a broad range of evidence both for and against the conclusions drawn by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). http://icecap.us/images/uploads/stonJason10-May10-CO2ClimateTheoryCannotSurviveLegalExam.pdf After a comprehensive examination of the...

    Washington (AP) - Ditching its past cautious tone, the nation's top scientists urged the government Wednesday to take drastic action to raise the cost of using coal and oil to slow global warming. The National Academy of Sciences specifically called for a carbon tax on fossil fuels or a cap-and-trade system for curbing greenhouse gas emissions, calling global warming an urgent threat. The academy, which advises the government on scientific matters, said the nation needs to cut the pollution that causes global warming by about 57 percent to 83 percent by 2050. That's close to President Barack Obama's goal. "We...

  • Olbermann's Absurd Defense Of Banning Dissenting Voices From Show

    Looks like Keith Olbermann is getting defensive about his policy of prohibiting any guests on his show who disagree with him. An MSNBC Countdown promo features Olbermann making an absurd non sequitur of an argument in defending his echo-chamber approach. Keith claims he asks questions "to find out if I'm wildly incorrect about something," ignoring the obvious: that he's unlikely to find out if he's wrong if he hand picks guests who think he's right!

He also delivers a speech regarding the contributions of Earth Day to environmental awareness. Meanwhile, 200,000...
