The Left’s War on Science

Neo-Malthusians helped create China’s evil One Child Policy.  What happened to the scientific method? Is it even being taught, let alone followed? From City Journal: My liberal friends sometimes ask me why I don’t devote more of my science journalism to the sins of the Right. It’s fine to expose pseudoscience on the left, they […]

Huge Plans for NASA

Good News: Skeptic Ebell will take on the E.P.A.

Hopefully American ingenuity will be unleashed and ridiculous regulations lessened. From the NY Times: The mug-shot posters, pasted on walls and lampposts around Paris by an activist group during the United Nations climate talks last year, were hardly flattering.

Global Greening: Benefits of CO2

THERE HAS BEEN A 14% INCREASE IN VEGETATION OVER THE LAST 30 YEARS. CO2 IS UP TO 400 PPM. WHICH IS STILL ONLY  0.04%. LOOKS LIKE IT IS HELPING THE WORLD, LIKE OTHER PERIODS OF WARMING. Matt Ridley, along with Bjorn Lomborg, are 2 of my favorite “warmists”. “These days there is a legion of […]

Self-Driving Hype Doesn’t Reflect Reality

More hype…the science is far off “In the near term, “self-driving” cars will resemble Teslas, with their “traffic-aware cruise control” that can maintain a safe following distance, change lanes and stop in an emergency.

Rising Emissions Show Paris Climate Agreement is a Farce

CO2 is not a pollutant and the lack of sunspots may lead to a few colder decades. Will the warmists then call for more carbon to stop climate change?

Klingons, Romulans and blue-skinned Andorians roamed the corridors of a Las Vegas casino recently during the nation’s largest annual Star Trek convention.

Why the Public is Right to Mistrust Science

This is a good editorial from a non-conservative site. It provides some hope. “If the public does not trust science, I say many scientists have given them good reason.
