NASA’s Children’s Climate Change Website, and the book 1984: Creating Spies One Child at a Time »

From our friend Cal Beisner over at the Cornwall Alliance: What would you say if your child accused you of a thought crime, and turned you in to the thought police? Would you say it was ridiculous? Perhaps you would say, “There is no ‘thought crime’ in the United States.” Surely your children would...

“Risky Business” in Climate Change Policy »

Alicia Mundy writes in the Wall Street Journal of June 24, 2014, that a coalition of environmentalists and at least some of the many corporate cronies of the federal government are pressing a proposal to require private business entities to account for and to report to shareholders the risks to which they are exposed...

Common Core: Raising the Bar-barians »

“Barbarians at the gate.” That’s what Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal called opponents of Common Core national standards earlier this month.

Hurray for Washington! »

The culmination of last night’s Oscars broadcast with a Live! feed from the White House with Mrs. Obama (hangin’ with her military BFs) marks the official recognition of the Presidency as theater: like the old Western sets, no substance required. From the very beginning, President Obama was elected based on his strong delivery of...

Carbon Taxes »

One suggestion for dealing with greenhouse gas emissions is to implement a revenue-neutral tax on carbon emissions. If we implemented a carbon tax and cut income taxes by the same amount, we would be reducing taxes on something we want (income) and increasing taxes on something we don’t (air pollution). As good as it...

It’s Official: No Global Warming Since 1997 »

Modeling Disasters »

It always astonishes me that a publication calling itself a “newspaper” can report as fact, leaving no allowance for the possibility of error, a story such as this: “As Waters Warm, Predators’ Hunger Games Will Get Tougher.” [Note that the online version tones it down a bit: “...predators may go hungry.” (Emphasis added.) Hedging...
