A Little of This, a Little of That

So I found a few amusing things today that may, for a while, take your mind off the horrors of the third Obama administration.

Somebody dug up an interesting video of Leonard Nimoy warning in the ’70s about the looming ice age. We were all going to freeze to death because a global freeze was imminent. Noted climate scientists said so!

Of course, that was before we were all going to burn to death due to global warming.  The video can be found here.

A Carbon-Free Atmosphere?

Joe Biden recently convened a global summit on the “existential threat” of climate change. Despite that the ecosystem–plants, animals, and humans–have been adapting to the ever-changing climate since life began on this planet, nevertheless global leaders, who believe they know best, convened to try to stop climate change.

Again, It Goes Without Saying …

Yes, we do; indeed we do, Mr. President.

Green Scooters and Bikes?

Cities across the country (indeed, across the globe) have introduced dockless electric scooters and bikes in an effort to be environmentally greener. These alternative modes of transportation within urban areas are supposed to help “cities meet their goals of reducing carbon emissions and cutting car traffic.”

U.N. Wants to Tax Meat

Obama Says “Climate Change” Will Destroy (Not Create) National Parks

Orange Is the Color of the Animas River’s Soul

Gold_King_Mine_Spill_Emergency_Retaining_Ponds - Copy

Hurriedly constructed retention ponds, built in an attempt to contain and treat the water spilling from the Gold King Mine.

Orange appears to be a recurring theme for us lately.

Over a week ago (!), the EPA (technically, one of their contractors) turned the Animas River in Colorado a putrid curry orange, when they spilled into the river a tremendous amount of contaminated waste water from a defunct mine. This “accident” happened while the EPA was allegedly trying to prevent a spill and “clean up” a mine that’s been inactive for over 90 years. Their bone-headed blunder is raising many questions in the blogosphere.

Heck of a job, Barry!!!

Religious and Political Syncretism

OH, LORD, PLEASE DON’T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD.

Who can blame Evo Morales, the commie leader of Bolivia, for mistakenly believing that the Pope would relish a crucifix in the shape of a communist hammer and sickle? Perhaps a dried llama fetus would have been better appreciated, so that the Pope could have made a Bolivian-style sacrifice to “Mother Earth” (aka Pachamama).

Update: Francis likes it, despite his apparent puzzlement.

Environmental Migrants and Fundamental Transformation

atmosphere - Copy

Nowadays, everything is political and everything is tainted with politics. Nothing much that happens these days is an accident or a coincidence.

A previous post explained how many fields of scientific study are being systematically corrupted by political correctness, which infects anthropology, paleontology, psychology, sociology, archaeology, history, meteorology and of course political science, among others. The issue of man-caused climate change is among the most obvious of examples where political correctness rears its ugly head. Why is this important to recognize?

Let’s speculate a little about how politically corrupted science can further efforts to “fundamentally transform” our free Republic.
