Climate Change Activism is a Clinic on Informal Fallacies

Bette Midler recently blamed “ignorant selfish climate deniers” for the uncommonly warm winter weather: Dec. 22, 2015, 63 degrees in NYC. I would like to thank the ignorant selfish climate deniers for all their goodwill toward the planet. Midler is just another in a long line of climate change activists who can’t seem to get […]

The Retreat of the Exit Glacier, and the Picture Worth a Thousand Lies

Recently, Obama visited Alaska to take pictures of and with shrinking glaciers. He plans to use these pictures as visual motivation for the American public to get involved in the fight against global warming or climate change or meteorological macro-fluctuations or whatever: He reached another post reading “1951,” a marker for the edge of Alaska’s […]
