Scientist to Florida Gov. Scott:  Alarmism is not Pro Life - Source: The Cornwall Alliance
Atmospheric scientist Neil Frank sent Florida Gov. Rick Scott a letter explaining why global warming alarmism is not pro-life. Frank responded to assertions by climate activists that people with pro-life abortion views must also support pro-life alarmist global warming views.

Energy

Nothing makes sense about Renewable Energy Targets, except at a “Bumper-Sticker” level. Today the AFR front page reports the federal government is shifting to remove the scheme (by closing it to new entrants) rather than just scaling it back. It can’t come a day too soon. Right now, the Greens who care about CO2 emissions should be cheering too. The scheme was designed to promote an industry, not to cut CO2. We’ve been sold the idea that if we subsidize “renewable” energy (which produces less CO2) we’d get a world with lower CO2 emissions. But it ain’t so. The fake “free” market ... more »

Explaining Muslim violence and anti-Semitism by every factor instead of the essential one.
