Attacked on all sides!

Here’s an excellent article by Licia Corbella on why we need a public inquiry into the US billionaire funded attacks on Alberta. She starts off: “Lies and smears have been spread around the world about how damaging Alberta’s oilsands are to the existence of our planet. The response over all of those years by the […]

It’s All About World Government

I subscribe to an online discussion forum called Quora, and recently a question was asked: “Do we really have 12 years to stop global warming?” To answer, David Leithauser who describes himself as a technical consultant, writer, and inventor, lays out the standard IPCC line that allowing global warming to go above 1.5 C would […]

It’s Barack Obama, or Reality

For those who like to be informed, there are a couple of really big events coming up in the next few weeks in Calgary. The first event is the Things that Matter Conference, February 8 and 9 at the Best Western, Port O’ Call. Sponsored by the Essentials of Freedom organization, it has an incredible […]

It will Survive!

Australia’s great barrier reef will survive! This astonishingly good news was in a recent article in Bloomberg headlined: Great Barrier Reef “Showing Signs of Recovery.” This just one year after it was declared doomed! To be honest with you, I always thought it would recover and I’ll tell you why. I’ve read enough history related […]

Ice Age Coming!?

Last weekend’s Sunday Sun papers had a two-page article saying that heat, drought, and a longer fire season are going to be the new normal for Canada. Maybe for now, but I have research data going back into the early 1800s, and found out that the biggest fire in US history was actually in 1910. […]

HOT! HOT! HOT!

Friday, August 10 was HOT in Calgary. In fact it was 36.4 Celsius hot. For the unconverted, that’s 97.5 Fahrenheit hot. It broke the previous all-time record of 36.1 Celsius set in 1919, and again in 1933. By a whopping 3/10 of a degree. Take that you deniers! Now I have a phrase that I […]

Kids Are Questioning Climate Science. Why?

This week, Meritha and I attended the annual Friends of Science gala at the Red and White Club. There were two excellent speakers. One was Marijn Poels, an award-winning, documentary filmmaker, currently living in Berlin. The other was Dr. Madhav Khandekar, a world renowned, and widely published climatologist with a particular expertise in  climate cycles. […]

Talking or Doing. That Essential Difference between Left and Right.

I have long maintained – because the evidence has been overwhelming for a long time – that the Left is focused on talking about Progress; implementing “Progressive” legislation, and then not worrying much about the unintended consequences. For instance, the magical $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge barrier to getting that first-time job, […]

The Year That Winter Died

The phenomenon known as, “A Canadian Winter”, died, six years ago, during the mild winter of 2011-2012.
Well, maybe not!

Weather actually began before 1980!

Dear friends I subscribe to a New York Times newsletter, and today it’s op-ed writer, David Leonard, had a column on the approaching climate disaster. https://www.nytimes.com/newsletters/2018/01/11/opinion-today?nlid=79801464 Mr. Leonard quoted statistics going all the way back to 1980, 40 years ago, which is probably longer than he’s been alive, so anything happening before that apparently is […]
