Officially, Judith Curry is retiring from the School of Earth and Atmospheric Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. But it’s not because she feels she has nothing left to contribute. She’s leaving the school she once chaired because of the madness that’s infected climate science. read more

The Climate VICE

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The hot political talk is Obama’s VICE  interview, where he naturally blames George Bush once again for a problem he has caused – the current terrorist threats in the Middle East.

But Obama spent the first third of the interview, a full 6 minutes on an even greater problem – that of climate change.

Let’s be clear from the get go. This was not an interview. This was a pro-Obama commercial done in a bubble by an obvious Obama sycophant and cheerleader, VICE founder Shane Smith, who is in love with Obama and everything he stands for.

Mr. Smith is obviously a climate change fanatic, for when Obama mentions climate change Smith perks right up. What I found interesting was that the “interview” actually began with a mini docudrama of how Antarctica is melting away.

It’s apparent that one third of the interview regards global warming but it seems they take great pains not to say the words, but rather replace them with climate change, as they do these days. That is until climate change becomes pejorative. The terms used to be interchangeable, but it seems no longer, although Mr. Smith slipped up and said global warming once toward the end. I’m surprised they didn’t edit that out. read more

Shutting Down the Deniers

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

It’s funny (not funny ha ha) that leftists must always be fighting against something. They must always have a bogeyman lurking in the shadows that they feel the need to defend the rest of us from.

 

Liberals can’t just mind their business and live their lives. It might be the mythical separation of church and state, homosexual marriage or a “woman’s right to choose”. No matter what the wacky cause du jour, there must always be a straw dog oppressor, or denier.

 

Leftists will fight until they get what they want – although it’s hard to tell if they’ve won because they never seem satisfied.

 

It is however, easier to know when they are losing. They get even wackier, even more absurd. So I wasn’t surprised when in Britain, a government minister (official) wishes to simply “shut down” all dissenting views. read more
