On the muzzling of climate change skeptics and your gullibility

I came across an article yesterday that I thought was a bit revealing.  “UPROAR AS BBC MUZZLES CLIMATE CHANGE SCEPTICS” the article screams.

In the story, a professor of genetics apparently tasked with reviewing the objectivity of the BBC, concluded (shocker!) there is no sign of bias within the BBC.  Going further, he suggests to the BBC to stop getting the ‘opposite viewpoint’ from anti-global warming alarmists.  The BBC has nobly been doing this in its pursuit of journalistic fairness, but “where there is a “scientific consensus” it should not hunt out opponents purely to balance the story.”… continue reading...

James Jay Lee’s Manifesto to Save the Planet

James Jay Lee originally posted this at www.savetheplanetprotest.com but it seems the site is down. I am posting it here in full for posterity’s sake.

The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:
1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be

History of the Culture of Death

I delivered the following presentation at Concordia University at Seward, Nebraska, on Nov. 20th, 2010.  The event was hosted by Nebraska Lutherans for Life.  I explain what the ‘culture of death’ is and how it got here.  To invite me to present at your organization, you can get more information here.

The Culture of Death: Planned Parenthood, Eugenics, and… Climate Change? from Anthony Horvath on Vimeo.

Pro-life speaker Anthony Horvath recounts the history of the ‘Culture of Death’ from Thomas Malthus to Charles Darwin to Margaret Sanger to Peter Singer, with an array of personalities in between. Horvath … continue reading...

Global Warming Fraud Uses Same Scientific Method as Evolution

The Internet is abuzz with the revelations that global warming proponents have been… lying, hiding data, and deceiving.  The whole notion that ‘climate change’ is an emergency requiring drastic and immediate action now hangs in the balance.  I was reminded of a post I wrote last year responding to a global warming skeptic comparing the global warming proponents to creationists.  I said that in fact it was the other way around.  Today, with ‘climate change’ and ‘global warming’ in particular being smacked around, it is good to revisit the issue.

Why?

Because the raw fact is that the … continue reading...

Christian Self-Interest the Key to Environmentalism?

I discovered today that a post a couple of weeks ago about Christians and the environment popped up on a Christian environmentalist blog.  My post was ‘Shouldn’t Christians Care about the Environment?” and the brief response (if it was a response at all) was called ‘Self-interest makes Christians better ecologists.’

I actually couldn’t tell from the entry whether or not the blogger agreed or disagreed with my post.  There is only one sentence:  “Anthony suggests that the reason Christians make better ecologists is that they put people first.”

This isn’t much to go on but … continue reading...

Shouldn’t Christians Want to Save the Planet?

Last week I posted an entry challenging the notion that we can save the planet.   This generated some interesting comments.  One person pointed out that it was his understanding that Christians should care about the environment.  On this there is no dispute.  Since I rarely speak on this issue I thought something more definitive is in order.  Briefly.

There is no question that Christians should care about the environment.  However, the infantile notion that the planet needs saving or could be saved is not what that means.  This notion rests on the idea that the planet has some sort … continue reading...

Does the planet need saving?

Reflecting on the global warming/environmental propaganda being delivered to my son in elementary school, I was left shaking my head.  Whatever it means to ‘save the planet’ it can’t possibly mean ‘save the planet.’

The planet isn’t going anywhere.  The planet doesn’t care if it is polluted.   In fact, ‘polluted’ is a term that is only meaningful relative to we human-folk.  Indeed, ‘save the planet’ can, on the best construction, only mean something to the effect, “save the habitats that we consider important to life.”  Presumably, with all the expressed fear that the ocean levels will rise, etc, what we … continue reading...

Madness! Pick up a rock and go to Jail

From Worldnetdaily.com

Just when you think it can’t get any more ridiculous.  Just when you think that legislators can’t get any dumber or more stupid or more wicked.   Just when you think that you’ve seen the worst:  the government surprises you.

Pending legislation described as:

A land management bill that swept through the U.S. Senate last month and is headed for a House vote this week punishes rock collectors and paleontologists with arrest and expropriation of their cars and other equipment for even unknowingly disturbing fossils on public land, say critics.

In the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009,

Wisdom is Proved Right by Her Children; Evil Proved Evil by His

This weekend I read one of the scariest things I have heard coming out of the Global Warming crowd.   [That link has disappeared, so here it is on Internet Archive] That is saying something.  I have documented elsewhere on this blog some other things they’ve said, like comparing denying man-made Global Warming to denying the holocaust.  This is so disgusting I almost sat down and wrote a book exposing the various principles at work in it but stopped when I thought of at least one that is already written:  C.S. Lewis’s The Abolition of Man.

In summary, the … continue reading...

Auto Execs Drive not fly, Global Warming Advocates keep flying

I wasn’t really going to say anything about the whole ‘the auto execs flew on their private jets while begging for money’ thing, as absurd as the coverage was, but when I saw today that the automobile CEOs are driving to DC in their hybrids instead of flying this time I just burned inside with the lunacy of it and had to tell someone what I think.  Since there is no one around, you, my faithful readers, must endure.

This is just stupid.  I am getting tired of these media generated firestorms.  As a case in point, the same media … continue reading...

Global Warming Proponents are like… Creationists? Really?

I was reading this news article from the Sydney Morning Herald entitled “Beware the Church of Climate Alarm” and found myself inspired to blog on it when I read from page two of the article:

Plimer says creationists and climate alarmists are quite similar in that “we’re dealing with dogma and people who, when challenged, become quite vicious and irrational”.

Human-caused climate change is being “promoted with religious zeal … there are fundamentalist organisations which will do anything to silence critics. They have their holy books, their prophet [is] Al Gore. And they are promoting a story which … continue reading...

Global Warming and Evolution: Intimidation the New Step in the Scientific Method

I must at the outset admit that I haven’t delved into the data that I am told substantiates the view that the earth is steadily warming. That is one reason why I have not said anything about Global Warming. I shall say that here in Wisconsin we just came off of a mighty cold spell with snows as late as April, and last year was about the same. As Wisconsin is part of the globe, I feel I can anecdotally chime in that to this point I am skeptical about the Global Warming argument. Moreover, there clearly are several different … continue reading...
