Global warming ´scientific
consensus´ debunked

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/14/2013 8:15:34 AM

A peer-reviewed survey of 1077 geoscientists and engineers finds that "only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis," according to James Taylor, writing at Forbes.com. As he points out, if there is a scientific consensus at all, it would have to be skepticism toward anthropogenic global warming. Yet President Obama in his State of the Union speech Tuesday cited the now-discredited notion of such a consensus as the foundation of his green agenda. It is bunk.

Nice, but irrelevant. It was never about saving the planet. Or truth.

Not to worry - Obama would never let facts or actual science interfere with his plans to soak the American taxpayer for ´green fantasies´...

And in the ´success´ department, I think we can all agree that his ´green initiatives´ to date have been little more than vast sucking sounds from American taxpayer´s pockets.

Welcome to government via farce.

It was never anything more than a grab for political power, influence, and money, by snake oil salesmen within the scientific community. Naturally the democrats latched on to the scheme since such things are so near and dear to their hearts. They know, and history shows, that there is never a shortage of gullible dupes ready to believe in apocalyptic fantasies.

Check how many of those 36% have grants, careers, research validation, paper publication etc. dependent on AGW being a fact. My guess close to 34 out of 36.

Sorry but the survey is not what it seems. Only about 14% were geoscientists, almost 70% were Engineers. Seems to me if you want to measure the consensus you have to ask those in the group that has the consensus.

When you want to understand someone, watch the behavior.. not the words.
Ozero is ´fundamentally´(Muslim word), with the help of his Marxist and Islamist appointees, changing America into a third-world country, vulnerable as Europe and the Medeast to the Muslim Brotherhood.
He talks well with a teleprompter, but make the effort to read the many Executive Orders he has signed. Appalling!!

There are "scientists", and then there are engineers and scientists qualified, active, and experienced in the particular or directly-related fields.

As in immigration (legal and illegal), liberals love to lump things together.

The Devious Secret of Obamacare

Adventures in Obamacareland, in which our protagonist is: - encouraged to lie and report that he did not have existing health insurance, making the number of uninsured look higher; - discovers new reasons to doubt the numbers of people reported as signing up for Obamacare; - and learns that one of the supposed reasons behind the (Un)Affordable Care Act was a total sham. (snip) Why would Obamacare “navigators” encourage applicants to misrepresent their existing insurance status when applying? A headline in the LA Times this past week answered the question.

The feminist left may be crazy, but it is powerful. Witness what happened in San Francisco at a fast-growing company that is a web-based hosting service for software development named GitHub. (hat tip: Instapundit). Via readwrite.com: You might not immediately notice the latest change to come to GitHub unless you’re standing in its San Francisco headquarters and looking down at the floor. GitHub has removed the centerpiece of its faux Oval Office waiting room, a circular mat emblazoned with the phrase, “United Meritocracy of GitHub.”

Progressives pride themselves on their highly evolved psyches, their awe-inspiring good intentions and their admirable sense of right and wrong. Indeed, so sure are they that they are right, disagreement can only be an insult. Opposition triggers instant hatred, in a chorus chanted so loudly that nothing said, no evidence presented, will be heard or considered. Indeed, in order to cement a belief, whatever the left decides to believe magically becomes new science, granted an exemption from any sort of scientific process because the leftist has declared that a consensus of leftists makes something scientific. Belief alone is the sole

Hitler´s Bund Deutsche Madel and
the Neo-Feminist Girl Scouts
American Thinker, by Deborah C. Tyler    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/18/2014 9:15:51 AM     Post Reply
When we remember the Jewish children thrown alive into ditches by the Nazis and then think about the little girls outside Walmart selling cookies, it seems an offense to decency to suggest any comparison between the Bund Deutsche Madel (League of German Girls, or BDM) and the Girl Scouts. Nevertheless, both Nazism and post-1960s American feminism (neo-feminism in this essay) envision exclusionary, utopian socialist societies. Both indoctrinate girls from a young age to advance their visions. And there are parallels in structure, activities, and ethos. Changes to the Girl Scout Law reveal the core of the shifts from individually focused, morally

Obama as Imperial President

Ever since President Obama was elected in 2008, his administration has taken on the appearance of an “imperial presidency” while Congress has acted as a tableau of figureheads. Americans need look no further than Obama’s executive actions concerning the delay in the ObamaCare mandates, the recess appointments, and his changes in the immigration laws. President Obama had no qualms in his recent State of the Union address in declaring that he will use the power of the pen and will sidestep Congress whenever and wherever possible.

Though the Obama presidency has years to go, he has already initiated his legacy project. It’s called My Brother’s Keeper and attempts to help “at risk” young men of color – those prone to crime, mayhem, drug addiction, and fathering illegitimate children. Clearly a worthy cause, and it has already attracted $150 million in private support. The goal also seems reasonable, since unruly young men (regardless of color) have long troubled society and cures abound thanks to eons of experience. That’s the good news. The bad news is that Obama’s putative cure is a modern-day Progressive nightmare. It will fail while

We have been so absorbed by the cavalcade of government incompetence and individual hurt produced by the rollout of ObamaCare that it is easy to forget the tragedy-in-waiting should this federal healthcare takeover stay in place: the death panel, also known as the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). This is the group of political appointees designed to allow the federal government to use a combination of medical and social criteria to determine the healthcare an individual receives. Or, to put it as bluntly as Sarah Palin did, to determine who lives and who dies. Why am I thinking about that now?

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned
