ETHICS ISSUES: CLIMATE CHANGE (AGAIN)

science or religion?

…but it’s there…

This website has insisted that Climate Change is a natural phenomenon that has taken place since Earth had climate. Of course, man has had an effect (by virtue of his waste CO2 and other actions), but that effect tends to be minor when compared with other sources (gas and natural ‘pollutants’ contributed by such as volcanic activity).

On the other hand, politically-motivated science claims that man will shortly tip the balance toward his own extinction by contributing excessive amounts of CO2 to the atmosphere, and that extreme (and expensive) steps need to be taken NOW to avoid catastrophe.  We disagree.

It continues to be our position that Nature has a stake in maintaining Earth’s natural balance, and will compensate naturally for aberrations to that balance as it always has in the past. Models predicting disaster cannot and do not consider all forces that determine climate,

GLOBAL WARMING?

THE HOAX OF GLOBAL WARMING

This comes from one of our original blogs.  It’s still current.

global warming is a hoax

It’s about politics…

I’ve been a geologist for more than half a century (and an engineer as well for about 8 years during that time).  Geology being the science of the earth naturally includes the environment (which includes Earth).  Typically, we geologists begin our investigations by observing and documenting current conditions, then working backward to determine how they got that way.  We do this using, among other tools, the method of multiple working hypotheses devised by T.C. Chamberlin, an American geologist who died before my time; it has found its way into other forensic sciences.  Essentially, it involves looking at current conditions and investigating simultaneously, without prejudice, every conceivable path that might have led to the current situation.  This method will necessarily include chasing down dead ends

ETHICS ISSUES: EPA, GOVERNMENT, and ENVIRONMENTALISM

THE EPA, GOVERNMENT, & the ‘ENVIRONMENTALISTS’

kicking out ethics

Ethics be Damned…

There is a small but strident politically-correct minority impeding the national economy by locking up federal lands from economic development.  The federal government owns and controls fully one-third of our country—as much as two-thirds the areas of four western states whose economies could be turned loose by judicious use of these lands.  Most of these lands are by law open to multiple use including mineral development and energy, yet so-called “environmentalists” treat them as off-limits to productive development.  These small but vocal groups use EPA and other complicit administrative agencies and the Department of the Interior in their (almost always successful) efforts to stop or greatly delay economic development on their own terms.  They do this by suing the government agency, which in turn not only settles out-of-court in the group’s favor but pays the

THE WAGES OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS……EXHORBITANT!!!

THE BOONDOGGLE of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

PC is a lie

The Truth Be Told…

Next week the Administration will “unveil a cornerstone of its climate-change initiative with a proposed rule aimed at… meet(ing) aggressive goals for reducing carbon emissions by existing power plants.” The price tag begs reflection on whether the benefits justify the cost of political correctness. The answer is a resounding NO.

Political Correctness is a political, not scientific, animal. There is no evidence of man’s activities causing disastrous climate change; climate change is a perfectly natural phenomenon that will be handled effectively by those same natural processes that have been operating for millions of years. New evidence has positively debunked the claim that 97% of the world’s scientists support the conclusion that human activities are responsible for most of the observed ‘disastrous’ warming over the previous 50yrs. There is NO WAY that number can be supported, yet that’s the number they’re

ETHICAL ISSUES: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS II

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS – The Scourge Of Our Time (Conclusion)

TERRORISM

more important than you know...

…it’s important…

Terrorists have been attacking our soil for years.  The aggression began well before September 11, 2001, and the 2013 Boston Marathon and the San Jose (CA) power station attacks are more recent examples.  Our embassy in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists—four Americans including our Ambassador were killed.  This is, by any standard, warfare.  Contrary to President Obama’s declaration that “…America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam,” Islam is at war with us, however politically-incorrect it is to admit. This from Mohammad Akram of the Muslim Brotherhood: “Members of Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a…jihad in eliminating…Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house…so that God’s religion is made victorious over all other(s)”.

Nor does covering up for the offenders alter the

ETHICS IN POLITICS? LOTS OF LUCK I

ETHICS IN POLITICS?  HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL…

Hot air on earth

Enough hot air, already…

Democrats in Washington (specifically Chuck Schumer (NY) and Tom Udall (NM) have introduced a proposal to amend our Constitution to permit government regulation of freedom of speech (but not limit freedom of the press).  Ethics in politics?  Well, since “the press” is overwhelmingly liberal (if not Progressive), that should come as no surprise…  Ethics in politics?  How far will Progressives go to geld Republicans?  And what do they hope to accomplish?  Well, for starters:

Continuing to use biased models based on the assumption that fossil fuels are the source of ‘global warming’ and ignoring the fact that their previous warnings did not materialize (and show no tendency for doing so—details below), a new government  report continues to project panic about the devastating effects of ‘climate change’.  George
