The author here makes the point I’ve been emphasizing for years now. Climate alarmism, and scientism more generally, are the latest substitutes for a heartfelt and thoroughly thought out religion based on a higher moral authority. The lazy and the intentional sinner want nothing to do with true justice. They seek a relative moral playground that morphs to the whim of the moment, especially when the is money or prestige or power to be had.
Insane proponents like Dawkins can preach ferociously against religion forever, but at most they will change the rituals. Religion is in human nature. It is indestructible even if volatile. Abandoning an unchanging deity and consistent moral ethic invariably leads to autocracy, occultism (look it up, don’t assume), and superstition. Take UFOs for instance of this last, Nazism for the first two.
Climatism, and environmentalism in its current version, is the current established and state sanctioned religion. We must enlighten our fellows and get our government out of it.

Riddle me this Batman. Why will it take nearly a billion dollars to decommission an aircraft carrier?
Why does the Fed need to do student loans? Can’t the companies that want these blossoming students recruit them out of high school and sponsor them, with various agreements, such as a loan that can be worked off or even forgiven after some number of years with the company? If the company does it well, loyalty would grow, etc.
Eliminate the EPA and replace it with a restricted and targeted agency. Place strict guidelines and limits, and even limit funding.
Regulations are killing our country. I thank Senator Inhofe for stemming the tide of global warming alarmism, but the President and the EPA are determined to inflict the pain on us regardless. We must eliminate the EPA. Repeal the clean air act and replace it with updated and more sensible legislation. Legislation that has specific targets. It must not allow for “as low as reasonably achievable” standards. Our air and water have gotten better every year since enactment. Regulations are so bad that agricultural dust is a violation.
Carbon dioxide is an essential ingredient to life. It is not a pollutant. The other two essential ingredients to life as we know it are oxygen and water and are both far more dangerous than carbon dioxide. Oxidation in all its forms account for the majority of the damage in our world. Fire and corrosion are inexorable destroyers, always have been, always will be. Too much oxygen is even more dangerous than too much carbon dioxide. Likewise with too much water. Read the rest of this entry »
Perhaps because of the weekend, but the 31 May 2013 storm here in OKC is hard to find information on. We have some sensational video and photos, but little in the way of quantitative assessments.
At the moment, the death toll is at 11. God comfort them and their families.
There was significant damage in Canadian County, west of the Oklahoma City metro. As the storm came into the city, there were lots of indications the tornado stayed at F3 or higher, but damage reports were not coming in. There was flooding, and some hail, but chasing the storm was hard, and the radars didn’t seem to be getting things quite right. That is, while it was certain they knew where to look, it seems things simply were not as bad as the radar indicated, and the chasers were thwarted by traffic and rain. Rain was incredible. Winds were extreme. Read the rest of this entry »
