Ants vs. Global Warming

Published on February 15, 2015 By sirrahc

FUN FACT: Ants make up 15-25% of the total mass of living animal tissue on the continents! We’ll get back to the ants in a minute. But, first… The Sun is a nuclear furnace. Hydrogen, the lightest element and most abundant chemical substance in the universe, is constantly being fused within it into helium. Over […]

Frack This!

Published on June 10, 2011 By sirrahc

Since at least the 1970s, we’ve been warned that the world is at, or close to reaching, “peak oil“. As you can probably guess, the term indicates reaching some sort of limit. According to Wikipedia, “Peak oil is the point in time when the maximum rate of global petroleum extraction is reached, after which the […]

Top 10 Things Liberals Have Taught Me about Myself (Part 4 of 4)

Published on May 1, 2011 By sirrahc

Today’s post is the final one in the series (in case the “Part 4 of 4” wasn’t obvious). This confession/self-revelation has been so cathartic, and I thank you all for reading. It is amazing what one can learn about one’s self from other people, even total strangers, isn’t it? I know I implied this earlier, […]

Wind Energy: Just a Bunch of Hot Air?

Published on September 5, 2010 By sirrahc

Wind energy. Electricity generated by the power of the wind. It’s a cool idea. (Or, should I say “hot”?) Clean (i.e., no carbon emissions or other harmful waste products), natural and “renewable”. Presumably cheap, too. Yay! Every politician’s dream, especially those who are funded and/or pressured by the environmentalist lobbyists and other “green” groups. Of […]

Enviro-Politics: Feinstein Can't Be Serious

Published on April 14, 2010 By sirrahc

Consider the following facts: 1) Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a law requiring that 1/3 of the electricity produced in California by 2020 must be from “renewable sources”; solar and wind energy are the favored options. 2) The best location in CA for wind farms and solar plants (which need a LOT of relatively flat land, by […]

Gore Doubles-Down

Published on February 28, 2010 By sirrahc

The great bear of enviro-activism has poked his head out from a self-imposed hibernation. We haven’t heard from him in awhile, but Al Gore has a new op-ed piece in the New York Times. Not surprisingly, he minimizes the current climate data scandals, maintains support for the IPCC, and tries to obfuscate by marrying climate […]

No ClimateGate Questions Allowed, Or Else!

Published on December 12, 2009 By sirrahc

It seems an example of “climate change fascism” has peaked its head thru the curtain in Copenhagen. At a book-launching press conference today, Stanford’s Professor Stephen Schneider was answering questions from the audience, when journalist and documentarian Phelim McAleer asked the professor some frank questions about the ClimateGate scandal. While Schneider testily gave a non-answer, […]

This Is Climategate: Shining a Light (and Turning Up the Heat) on Climate Change Alarmists

Published on November 29, 2009 By sirrahc

For those who somehow missed this news item from several days ago, hundreds of email messages & other documents (some as old as 13 years) from the UK’s University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit were “leaked” to the public. Though illegally obtained (i.e., hacked), they have so far proven to be genuine. The correspondence […]

Global Climate… Stasis? Oops!

Published on November 23, 2009 By sirrahc

I don’t want to get into the whole “global warming / climate change” topic TOO much now, because I am still planning a series of posts about it. But, I thought this article in Germany’s Der Spiegel was worth bringing up. According to studies by the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Great […]
