If many gun-controllers had their way, you and I would not have our guns at all or if we did have to have them, they would be locked away in our safes never to see the light of day, except on rare occasions under the strictest scrutiny. This won’t fly in most of America and […]
Maybe this news will cheer even Greta up? It might mean our planet now has 12 and a half years before it implodes. (Evil Grin) https://nypost.com/2020/05/14/the-sun-has-entered-a-lockdown-period-which-could-cause-freezing-weather-famine/ Preview Open
Democrats and their ilk have already likened the threat of pandemics to the fanciful threat of “climate change”, presumably considering measures as bold as the current lockdowns to enforce counteraction. So let’s review why the term itself proves their climate concerns utterly ridiculous. For years, “global warming” was their battle cry. Why? The argument was […]
http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20190905-how-localisation-can-solve-climate-change Wow, so while we were fearing that the globalists will push their way forward with use of climate change, the agenda just got turned inside out (although it may take politicians awhile to refocus their efforts). Of course only a world government could possibly enforce this. Bonus: it could even fit right in with […]
The spineless Right is helping the senseless Left to hedge their bets on catastrophic climate change. Preview Open
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is acting as the face for the Justice Democrats’ Green New Deal, Dianne Feinstein is confronted by terror-stricken children and their indoctrination handlers, women in first world countries are declaring that they will forgo child-bearing in the face of impending environmental collapse, Mayor DeBlasio is mandating “Meatless Monday” menus in NYC public schools in order to combat Climate Change… Wherever you turn, the Left have whipped up their Eco-Marxist rhetoric to an absolute froth. And I, for one, have had enough.
Pardon the length of this, and don’t read if you prefer an immediate events focus. Anyone answering may have to project forward 50 or even 300 years to speculate and answer. Clearly there is a political force convinced that human activity adds significantly enough to global warming to justify enacting new realms of governmental action […]
The nation is in a severe deep freeze. They are warning in some states – don’t breathe. Those liberals refuse to believe that hell could possibly freeze over, and choose to light up New York buildings in pink, and now….I’m sorry….Good jackets. Ok – It’s cold here in Florida. It’s so cold I let all […]

November 25th, 2018 from RSOE site: http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/index2.php “Kilometers beneath the ice of Antarctica, a radioactive heat source is slowly melting it from underneath, researchers believe. Researchers flew planes over the ice using radar to “see” three kilometers beneath the ice, where the hot material seems to be slowly melting the ice. The researchers believe the heat […]
The latest FEMA “strategic plan” mentions “risking natural hazard risk” but not a peep about global warming, rising sea levels or devastating weather. Alice Hill, a Hoover Institution research fellow focusing on building resilience to catastrophic events, discusses the Trump Administration’s reluctance to utter the phrase “climate change” and where scientific debate stands in 2018.

When Catholic prelates and popes make idiots of themselves or engage in misconduct, Catholics are inclined to respond to Protestants who are scandalized by saying that the presence of fools and scoundrels in high ecclesiastical offices only goes to show that the Catholic church is the one true church. How could it have survived and flourished otherwise?
Not everyone is persuaded by this argument, but everyone must concede that fools and scoundrels sometimes find their way to high ecclesiastical office — and in this particular, our time does not differ from other times.
In the last few decades, the Roman Catholic Church has been fortunate in those whom it has elected to the Papacy. John Paul II was a great man — perhaps the greatest student of philosophy to have ever occupied the chair of Peter. If you doubt my claim, read his encyclicals. Many a Protestant minister, despite sectarian proclivities, has devoted considerable time to this task.
To listen to the corrupt, know-nothing mainstream media, Energy Secretary Rick Perry really stepped in it when he said human emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) is not the major driver of global warming. And, as usual with the MSM, it’s not true. The story is merely fodder for a false narrative about Perry, and the state of climate science.
On Monday, CNBC “Squawk Box” host Joe Kernen asked the secretary whether he believes carbon dioxide “is the primary control knob for the temperature of the Earth and for climate.” Perry’s answer:
No, most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in. … The fact is this shouldn’t be a debate about, ‘Is the climate changing, is man having an effect on it?’ Yeah, we are. The question should be just how much, and what are the policy changes that we need to make to effect that?
