Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

Elizabeth II was a bridge between the past and the future.  She wasn’t Churchill’s Queen, or Margaret Thatcher’s Queen, or Tony Blair’s Queen, though she presided over them all.  She was a Queen for all her people and all Great Britain, working hand in hand with political legends without being a political activist.  Her heir,… Continue reading Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

High energy prices and no air conditioning, welcome to the progressive future

A columnist for Bloomberg urges President Biden to ensure gas prices never fall below $5 per gallon again while a writer for CNN claims we should ditch our air conditioners in favor of “passive cooling.”  The progressive movement has never been more regressive, calling for you to suffer with less mobility, comfort, choice, and freedom. … Continue reading High energy prices and no air conditioning, welcome to the progressive future

Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

Some shows are better in reruns, so it was last week when Senator Joe Manchin stood alone against his own party once again, stopping the insanity of increasing taxes and regulations in a period of rampant inflation and slowing economic growth.  Both are the precise opposite of what economics demands, but Democrats are increasingly unmoored… Continue reading Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

The backwards insanity of our energy policy

For years, progressives have advocated increasing the cost of gasoline and other fossil fuels via a “carbon pricing” scheme, but now that prices have spiked, President Biden is blaming Russia, begging communist dictatorships to produce more dirty fuels, and lying about the insanity of his own energy policy.   Earlier this week, President Biden blamed the… Continue reading The backwards insanity of our energy policy

From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

The scientific establishment positions itself as an objective authority that demands our trust, but their actions over the course of the past two decades certainly don’t suggest they are worthy of it.  From an old scandal in climate science to a new one concerning the pandemic, they hide the data that doesn’t support their conclusions… Continue reading From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends

A new study finds a large majority of people aged 16-25 suffer from “climate anxiety” and close to half report their feelings about the environment negatively affect their daily lives, but rather than recognize these fears as irrational, the experts use them to advance their progressive agenda.  It’s all green, all the time, except when… Continue reading Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends

No, slashing and burning forests for electricity isn’t going to save us from global warming

The European Union claims renewable energy is outpacing fossil fuels and making huge gains on their carbon footprint, but they’re really just cutting down forests and burning the wood for electricity, a source dirtier than coal.  Oh, and the forests are located in poor regions in the United States.  This is a government climate scheme… Continue reading No, slashing and burning forests for electricity isn’t going to save us from global warming

The Antarctic ice sheet reaches a tipping point…40 years from now.

A new study claims ice will melt much faster in 80 years because we’ll reach a tipping point in 40 years if we don’t embrace the Green New Deal now, but what is the track record on other predictions for melting ice and global calamities in general?  I’ll give you a hint:  It’s not good,… Continue reading The Antarctic ice sheet reaches a tipping point…40 years from now.

Wait, electric cars are bad now too? Apparently, The New York Times and CNN just discovered electric vehicles don’t run on pixie dust

Environmentalists take aim at the mining projects required to obtain the lithium and other minerals required to build electric car batteries.  If electric cars are to work, we need lithium, lots of it, 42 times more than we produce today, but buckwheat found in Nevada stands in the way of a critical new mine.  The… Continue reading Wait, electric cars are bad now too? Apparently, The New York Times and CNN just discovered electric vehicles don’t run on pixie dust

Climate is everything: The pandemic was a “perfect opportunity” and the real change to all of our lives is coming soon

Introducing “climatization,” the process by which climate change will transform every aspect of society whether you like it or not.  According to Time Magazine, the pandemic isn’t just mass death and destruction, it’s the “perfect opportunity” to remake the world.  Climate, race relations, the economy, society at large, you name it, all must bow to… Continue reading Climate is everything: The pandemic was a “perfect opportunity” and the real change to all of our lives is coming soon
