    Occupation of Cyprus Underscores Hypocrisy of Gaza Outrage
    by Victor Davis Hanson
    Cyprus is a beautiful island. But it has never recovered from the Turkish invasion of 1974. Turkish troops still control nearly 40 percent of the island -- the most fertile and formerly the richest portion. Not a single nation recognizes the legitimacy of the Turkish Cypriot state. In contrast, Greek Cyprus is a member of the European Union. Why, then, is the world not outraged at an occupied Cyprus the way it is at, say, Israel? We see such hypocrisy when the West stays silent while Muslims butcher each other by the thousands in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya and Syria. Only when a Westernized country like Israel inflicts far less injury to Muslims does the West become irate.

    A Climate Crusader's Comeuppance
    Article from The Wall Street Journal as reported in Climate Change Dispatch
    For Steyer, it was never about climate change. It was always about Mr. Steyer's investments in alternate energy projects. And now both political and scientific realities are at odds with Steyer's grand plan to bolster his bottom line by supporting global warming lunacy promoted by the IPCC.

    Tuvalu PM says Pacific Island Nations Sinking, Science Shows They Aren't
    by Thomas Richard, CCD Editor
    Prime Minister Enele Sopoaga of the supposedly sinking Pacific island nations is at it again, this time taking a page out of John "global warming is a weapon of mass destruction" Kerry's handbook of hysteria in his attempts to rabble rouse a "deal." But a pesky thing called observable science keeps getting in the way of the the island nations actually sinking. Climate scientists have expressed surprise at findings that many low-lying Pacific islands are growing, not sinking. Islands in Tuvalu, Kiribati and the Federated States of Micronesia are among those which have grown, largely due to coral debris, land reclamation and sediment.

    We’re ill-prepared if the iceman cometh
    by Maurice Newman in The Australian
    WHAT if David Archibald’s book The Twilight of Abundance: Why Life in the 21st Century Will Be Nasty, Brutish, and Short turns out to be right? What if the past 50 years of peace, cheap energy, abundant food, global economic growth and population explosion have been due to a temporary [and relatively rare] climate phenomenon? What if the warmth the world has enjoyed for the past 50 years is the result of solar activity, not man-made CO2?

    Climate Science Does Not Support IPCC Conclusions
    by S. Fred Singer
    When it comes to global average surface temperature (GAST), the concern seems to be to remain below 2°C. It should be recognized that this limit is entirely arbitrary. There is no established scientific basis for assigning special significance to it; it just happens to be the “Goldilocks” number. Here is what I mean: If one were to choose 0.5°C, people will say “we’ve already seen that and nothing has happened.” However, if we were to choose 5°C, people will say, “we’ll never see that much warming -- hence of no significance.” That is why 2°C may have become the alarmists’ choice.

    Climate scientist faces broad array of foes in suit vs. National Review
    Michael Mann's "Hockey Stick" statistical "techniques" have been roundly criticized in the scientific community as "rubbish" and unworthy of a mediocre undergraduate for his "Mann-ipulation" of data to support his pre-conceived objective. Rather than confront his critics in the scientific arena, Mann has chosen to file lawsuits intended to silence them. His latest litigation against the Competitive Enterprise Institute and National Review magazine, has produced a backlash as dozens of media outlets across the political spectrum are now backing the defendants' right to free speech.

    Conservative icon still going strong at 90
    Power broker politicians 'would tremble' when Phyllis Schlafly walked in the room
    She’s been called the “Iron Lady” of the conservative movement by her enemies on the Left, and the “First Lady” of the modern conservative movement by those on the Right, but she may also be the most durable icon of any political movement with a career that has spanned seven decades dating back to Harry Truman.

    MSM Once Again Furthers The Big Lie
    Mary and I were driving home to Florida from working on the Joe Carr campaign in Tennessee when I heard the report on the radio. “Unarmed black youth shot by police.” Why did the reporter think it relevant to mention the race of the youth shot by police in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri?

    Climate Science, Free Speech and Legal Liability - Part 1
    Lies and Legal Liability
    The field of climate science, with controversial issues such as whether the planet is warming due to man's burning of fossil fuels, or the world is blissfully ignoring additional carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, or perhaps the globe is cooling down into the next ice age, has created and still creates vigorous expressions of opinion, and some name-calling, defamatory statements, and calls for deliberate lies and deceit. There appears to have also been outright lies, false statements, and fabrication of data, among other deceitful practices. This article explores some of the legal ramifications, criminal cases and Defamation in Part One. Part Two will continue the discussion on more of the civil causes of action.

  • Paul Driessen (Eco-Imperialism)

    “Climate-smart” policies for Africa are stupid, and immoral
    Obama-Kerry policies would perpetuate energy poverty, malnutrition, disease and death
    The US-Africa Leaders Summit is ending, with many interesting observations about the continent’s future – the most memorable of which might be Secretary of State John Kerry’s suggestion that African nations should practice “climate-smart” agriculture … to accompany the Obama Administration’s determination that they also practice “climate-smart” electricity generation. In the real world, this would translate into “Develop and modernize, but not too much and only in line with our Deep Ecology policies” … “generate electricity, but only what you can get from wind and solar power” … and “Increase food production, but only to the extent that you can do so without relying on biotechnology, chemical fertilizers or tractors.” Africans would be crazy to buy into this scheme, even to secure foreign aid money being dangled in front of them. Indeed, their guiding principle should be this: Africans should not do what the United States is doing now that it is rich. It should do what the United States did to become rich.

    The Gases of Life are NOT Pollutants
    Our atmosphere contains the four gases of life – nitrogen, oxygen, water vapour and carbon dioxide. Not only are they not pollutants, they are essential for life as we know it.

    Ocean Acidification Claims are Misleading -- and deliberately so!
    by Ross McLeod
    Chemistry debunks junk climate science in the 'global warming causes ocean acidification' debate. Established Chemistry proves that if temperatures were rising then, conversely, acidification would be falling, not increasing. Such is the woeful science ignorance (or intentional deceit) of climate alarmists.

    New paper finds multiple solar amplification mechanisms which modulate winter surface temperatures
    If you can't explain the 'pause', you can't explain the cause...
    A paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres finds "significant differences in the temperature patterns" of the Northern Hemisphere winter dependent upon the "four [phases of the solar cycle], which indicates a solar cycle modulation of winter surface temperatures." Thus, the paper describes four potential solar amplification mechanisms in relation to four phases of each solar cycle, and possibly a fifth related to solar modulation of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) as has been found by prior papers. Nothing about CO2 here.

  • Alan Caruba (National Anxiety Center)

    Jimmy Carter's Love for Terrorists
    Jimmy Carter was elected President for one reason—Richard M. Nixon. The feeling in the nation was that the born-again Sunday school teacher and Georgia Governor was the perfect antithesis of the President who was forced to resign over the Watergate scandal. He defeated Gerald Ford, Nixon’s Vice President who was largely punished for the 1974 pardon he gave the disgraced Nixon.
