Settled Science: The End is Nigh (Again)

Global cooling, subsequently renamed global warming, followed by the deliberately indecisive global climate change, has now, apparently, been re-re-named global warming. And old GW is bigger and better than ever! Just this week, it has caused 59,000 suicides, become 90% certain to pass “the tipping point” by 2100, and, worst of all, revived the film career of Al Gore. Is...

Revisiting the Paris Climate Accord

Back in 2015, when the Paris Climate Accord was as new, and seemed as natural, as John Kerry’s latest face shape, I wrote at American Thinker about the Accord’s content, meaning, and intentions. Today, as some people with short attention spans cheer Donald Trump’s announced pull-out from the Paris deal, I’d like to look back at what I wrote, before assessing the content,...

Mann vs. Steyn: Heresy Shall be Crushed

(Originally published in July 2013) Remember when scientists and other truth-seekers used to get all riled up about the way the Catholic Church treated Galileo? The outcry was not over the fact that Galileo was a “peer-reviewed” researcher, and therefore beyond question. Quite the contrary: the argument was that, from the point of view of the quest for truth, no...

Logic Gets Sucked into the Polar Vortex

(Originally published in January 2014) There is a new bogeyman in town. His name is Polar Vortex. He has been around forever, and has hitherto lived in obscurity as just another natural phenomenon. But against all odds, he has suddenly found satisfying new employment and fame as this year’s leading argument for tyranny. North America is presently experiencing the kind...

Where are the Global Warmists for Freedom?

Global warming “admitters” — to distinguish you from those of us you call “deniers” — I have a question for you: Do any of you have an answer to the cataclysm your settled science has proven beyond any possible doubt is coming which does not require totalitarian measures? Let me rephrase that, in case the connotations of the phrase “totalitarian...

Global Warming: The Evidence is Endless

If I believed the Earth were slowly turning into cheddar cheese, I could invoke this hypothesis to explain a lot of things. Why is the rat population in our major cities growing so quickly? Earth cheesification is providing more rat food. Why have there been so many earthquakes lately? The cheesification of the tectonic plates has made them less resistant to...

Prediction: Global Warming Will Cause Everything

(Originally published in June 2012) The following news headline appeared on the internet this week: “Scientists warn global warming will fuel spread of ticks that carry Lyme disease.” The corresponding article begins this way: Another effect of climate change may be crawling up your leg this summer as you frolic in the woods. Scientists say our warming world is speeding...
