A stunning headline from the Daily Caller: Biden Admin Quietly Admits Math Error Is Causing Massive Oil, Gas Permitting Delays. Apparently, the computer model used by the government to predict environmental impacts is badly flawed so all drilling licenses were erroneously denied.

The climate models are bogus. The number of registered voters in Atlanta or Milwaukee is also likely a math error. The model used by Ms. Yellen and the Fed concerning inflation appears to be wrong. Every prediction about COVID cases, rates, herd immunity percentages, etc., from Dr. Fauci, et al., has been wrong. The frequency of silly graphs from the NYT, WaPo, and other leading undergraduate publications feels like it is increasing.
