    Oh boy. Remember when a study came out that said that conservative political beliefs are associated with psychotic traits, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness? While liberalism is associated with “social desirability?” The American Journal of Political Science recently had to print a somewhat embarrassing correction, as the invaluable website Retraction Watch pointed out: It turns […]

    • Christopher Booker, The Sunday Telegraph

    The interview in last week’s Sunday Telegraph with Hugh McNeal, the new head of RenewableUK, was remarkable in more ways than one.

    Should we just go ahead and throw global warming deniers in jail? A surprising number of pundits and politicians suddenly seem to think that’s not such an outrageous idea. “Was it appropriate to jail the guys from Enron?” Bill Nye, a.k.a. the Science Guy, mused in an April interview with Climate Depot. “We’ll see what […]

    I cannot count the number of times someone has told me that they believe in “the science,” as if that were the name of some omniscient god who had delivered us final answers written in stone.

    The Portland Public Schools board is going to need to buy carbon offsets to compensate for its global warming book-burning campaign. Well, okay, it’s not actually planning to burn the books, so it’s in the clear on the emissions. Perhaps it will use a more ecologically sensitive solution like composting.

    The Obama administration lawlessly rewards its supporters and punishes its enemies. The United States was born out of a revolution against, in the words of the Declaration of Independence, an “arbitrary government” that put men on trial “for pretended offences” and “abolish[ed] the Free System of English laws.” Brave men and women stood up to […]
