William Tucker writes, “There are few places where conservatives have come off looking so foolish as their stonewalling on global warming.”p>Looking foolish to whom? Environmentalist wacko Left Coasters? Chablis-sniffing, frite-dipping Bruxellians? The last thing conservatives need to do is “mend fences” with Algore’s legions of fantasists. Sorry, Mr. Tucker, but we’ve got more important things to do. br> — Doug Welty br> Arlington, Virginia /p>
Mr. Tucker posits for our fare du jour, a rather unpalatable turkey of an idea that Bush and America endorse the Kyoto Protocol, just to make things right with the rest of the world. Pray tell, from whence does this asinine notion, that we have to mend fences with the rest of the world, come from?
Well, I for one say nuts to all this and will wait until Thursday for mine, thank you very much. How trendy of Mr. Tucker to be so enamored with apocryphal anecdotes of global warming, why it’s enough to make any Euro-American proud. In addition, he yammers on with the standard Leftist ad hominem screed, that conservatives don’t know what they’re talking about when it comes to global warming. I’ll be the first to concede that when it comes to hot air, the Left knocks the stuffing out of the rest of us. But not to beat around the bush, when attempting to make mincemeat out of skeptics such as Messrs. Lindzen and Singer, Mr. Tucker conveniently fails to mention how other reputable scientists (more than just a few) have made a complete hash of Michael Mann’s flawed “Hockey Stick Graph” that have Gore and U.N. member nations all atwitter. Lest we squash Mr. Tucker’s hypothesis to a thin gruel, perhaps he can justify his theory in light of the Medieval Climate Optimum of the 9th-14th centuries that had temperatures higher than today’s. O.K. enough of this.p>A Happy Thanksgiving to all at
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
