The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues its latest report as leading climate alarmists claim we have “zero years” left to avoid catastrophic effects, but what do the report and analysis actually say?  And why can’t we just focus on capturing carbon in the atmosphere instead of ever more intrusive and complex schemes no one… Continue reading The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather

Mandates, passports, restaurant requirements, and more: Making life “extremely” difficult for the unvaccinated

As government, universities, and private employers implement vaccine mandates and some municipalities require vaccines for entry to restaurants and gyms, it’s worth considering the applicable legal standards and how this would actually work in practice when some two thirds of minority groups will no longer be allowed to eat out.  Is this the America you… Continue reading Mandates, passports, restaurant requirements, and more: Making life “extremely” difficult for the unvaccinated

The oceans are dying and, of course, it’s your fault

Scientists are very, very concerned about “dead zones” in the ocean, areas of low oxygen that can kill every creature in their path.  We’re tracking one right now off the coast of Oregon, even as others around the world are shrinking.  We know they’re caused by fertilizer running off into the sea, but instead are… Continue reading The oceans are dying and, of course, it’s your fault

Biden’s victory lap on the economy is about as convincing as his victory lap on coronavirus

Second quarter GDP numbers miss projections by as much as 30%, but Biden claims he’s getting America back on track.  Meanwhile, back in the real world a challenging job market, epic inflation, and the end of a moratorium on evictions might be taking the bloom off this rose before it’s even picked.
