After looking at his blog, I find Russell Seitz a much more reasonable fellow than I gave him credit. I have not gotten my criticism of the climate change panic off talk radio. I work during the day and can only read. I expect that he might not like my sources but it doesn’t fit into his talking point. My problem with science salesmen like Mr. Seitz comes from my work experience as an engineer. I have seen their mays, possiblys and pontentiallys in many different settings.
Mr. Seitz appears unaware that some of his colleagues play a significant role in the media propaganda blitz. Hockey sticks and 10 warmest years are propaganda tools released to media outlets for only one purpose. Criticizing Al Gore is a nice start but serious scientists must take the bats to their colleagues that are willing to become whores for the Al Gores of the world. When scientists give their colleagues a pass for unethical behavior they inherit their reputations.p>I won’t be reading any lengthy scientific proceedings on climate change but will develop an opinion on the matter anyway. I have to since there are many political types who are trying to make radical changes to my life who won’t be reading it either. That opinion will have to be developed by using trusted sources willing to spend more time than I can give to this activity. Scientists who make press release propaganda, comment on every hurricane, tornado, tsunami, string of hot days, cold days, forest fire, excessive precipitation, drought or whatever weather provides the helpful anecdote won’t make the trusted source category. Science writers or scientists that emphasize consensus over substance are not credible either. The idea that the state of knowledge cannot be summarized is bilge. When it gets summarized with words like may, possibly or potentially nobody should be trying to influence public policy. br> — Clifton Briner /p>
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?
