An Honest Environmentalist Speaks Out

from the Daily Wire:

SHELLENBERGER: On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (L) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hold a news conference to introduce legislation to transform public housing as part of their Green New Deal proposal outside the U.S. Capitol November 14, 2019 in Washington, DC. The liberal legislators invited affordable housing advocates and climate change activists to join them for the announcement. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public. read more

There’s No Reasoning with Some Radicals

Give them an inch and they’ll take 500 miles! These fools will never be satisfied. There’s no longer any point in trying to rationally discuss the topic of race, when Lincoln isn’t even good enough.

from the Blaze:

Univ. of Wisconsin students want Lincoln statue removed: Sure, he was ‘anti-slavery,’ but he wasn’t ‘pro-Black’

No statue is safe

A student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is calling for the school to remove its popular Abraham Lincoln statue, saying the president who is known as the “Great Emancipator” is a symbol of racism. read more

Twenty Percent of Alzheimer’s Patients may be Misdiagnosed

Quadruple misfolded proteins, or QMP, refers to the presence of four separate kinds of toxic protein accumulations
Quadruple misfolded proteins, or QMP, refers to the presence of four separate kinds of toxic protein accumulations

Scientists are already struggling to make headway in the fight against dementia, and the discovery of a new more aggressive form of neurodegeneration that’s often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease further complicates the problem.

A new study from the University of Kentucky has described a novel form of dementia characterized by the toxic accumulation of four different proteins in the brain. The research suggests many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease may be suffering from this different, and more complex, neurodegenerative condition. read more

A Tribute to Dr. Thomas Sowell

Happy 90th Birthday to one of my heroes and a true patriot!!

from Walter E. Williams:

An Underappreciated American Scholar

Dr. Thomas Sowell has been both a friend and a colleague of mine for over a half-century. On June 30, he will have completed his 90th year of life, and I want to highlight some important features of that life. Sowell was born in Gastonia, North Carolina, in 1930. As part of the great black migration northward during the 1930s and ’40s, he and his family moved to Harlem, New York. Sowell attended the prestigious Stuyvesant High School but dropped out. In 1951, he was drafted into the military and assigned to the U.S. Marine Corps where he became a photographer. Photography remains his hobby today. read more

Levin is Right (Again) – He is a Disgrace

In one respect, this kind of isn’t news – or at the very least, nothing new. John Roberts has been an enemy of the Constitution for years. My opinion is that he is more of a political animal than a judge.

from the Daily Caller:

‘He’s A Disgrace’: Conservatives Turn On Chief Justice Roberts

  • Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.
  • Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, saying “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”
  • “Roberts has destroyed any credibility the Court may have had,” tweeted talk show host Mark Levin. “He’s a disgrace.”

Conservatives are turning against Chief Justice John Roberts after the Supreme Court justice sided with liberal judges in a monumental abortion ruling.

Roberts sided with liberal members of the Court in the close 5-4 ruling, writing that “the Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.”

Pro-lifers and conservatives alike had anxiously awaited Roberts’s decision on the landmark abortion ruling, worrying that Roberts might side with the liberal justices based on his votes earlier in June. read more

Killing Tumors

Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells
Microscopic bubbles could form part of a potent new cancer treatment, according to results from a new study that combines them with ultrasound to blast apart tumor cells

Lately we’ve seen an exciting string of research projects demonstrate how ultrasound can be harnessed to fight cancer, whether that be by helping drugs cross the blood-brain barrier, heating and destroying tissue in prostate cancers, or selectively killing tumor cells while leaving healthy ones unharmed. Adding to this burgeoning potential is a new study that combines ultrasound with microbubbles, which can be blasted apart like a “targeted warhead” to destroy the majority of tumor cells in breast cancer models. read more
