The Global Warming Scam is Exposed

Most of my working (and retired) life, I've worked with scientists. In the early days I had the highest respect for these folks - honest, dedicated, responsible.

For a while now, however, I've been much disappointed, because of what I knew in my heart was a great scam - global warming.

It just is not true.

Now, at last, it has been exposed for what it is - the greatest scandal in modern science. The lies, deceit, conspiracy and collusion are nicely exposed by a couple of hackers who broke into the University of East Englia Climate Research Unit records. The foul mess they turned up is well summed up by journalist James Delingpole:

Now there are three regularly

A very large, brilliant male Pileated Woodpecker showed up at the feeder the other day. He's a beauty!

The resident male is some put out. Really fun to see the territorial dance - I wonder why such big woodpeckers choose to do the important display work on the ground?

Lest We Forget

On this 11th day of the 11th month, I'm reminded that I never knew my paternal grandfather. He died in France in 1918. When I was going through the formative teen-age years I didn't have a father around to help me figure out the world. He was busy in Belgium and Germany. Now he rests in a military grave at Ste-Anne de Bellevue.

That's why, at today's 11th hour, I'll pause to remember those things - and of the cousins I have at the bottom of the sea near Murmansk or invalided here at home. And I'll be grateful for people like Churchill and Bush along with the Canadian, British and American fighting men who had the courage to stand up to the evil in this world and protect our way of life for the cowards and apologists who leave others to do their dirty work for them.
