Another data point…I’m just sayin’…

The NOAA has released its State of the Climate Annual report for 2010. It would appear that 2010 has tied 2005 as the warmest year on record. Perusing the report, which is a little dry for my taste, it just seems like a pretty straightforward report. Of course, it does seem to focus on the […]

The Science Advisor who cried “Wolf!”

John P. Holdren is Barak Obama’s Advisor for Science and Technology, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Co-Chair of the President’s Council of Advisers on Science and Technology. To say that Holdren is a global warming advocate is like saying “Jaws” was about a shark. He is a full-fledged alarmist […]

In hindsight, perhaps I should have cried “Wolf!”

One of the biggest conflicts you will find in cinema, literature, and life is that which one faces when he or she perceives some kind of danger and must make the choice of issuing a warning and taking action against waiting for more information to come in and better understand the probability of the risk. It […]

Russell’s teapot?

This was apparently the product of a homework assignment to create a video featuring the watering can.   Clever, eh? Here was another one with the same watering can but a different uh…spin. jk

I feel thee nigh, I know […]

The Hurricane will have its way.

George Carlin famously asked, “Why do hurricanes have names instead of numbers?” He answered with the punchline “To keep the killing personal.” One of the most awesome forces of nature, we have come a long way in understanding this ferocious natural entity yet there is still so much we do not know. It is no […]

Blame the butterflies

A couple of weeks ago, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to consider reopening a case attempting to sue energy companies for damages incurred by Hurricane Katrina. I will let that soak in for a few moments. A case actually made it all the way to the supreme court which tried to sue greenhouse-gas emitting companies […]

Bible Banter

As easy as it is to get caught up in debates about claims of the bible says, its contradictions, or the atrocities placed at the hands of God, my main goal has nothing to do with completely discrediting the book as worthless bunk. These arguments are more intended to demonstrate why literalistic claims of infallibility are misguided. […]

Pics of the Week!

Enjoy! Rev. Jackson was surprised by the Sunday turnout, But strangely it was all ram and no bush.   Abomination!   The Power of Christ compels you. (Hey, we’re all sinners!)   Sometimes prayer just won’t cut it…   Subtitle: “The Confessions of Rev. Jay Weigel”   Yet another reason I can’t enter heaven. jk
