Francis Mention: We suffer from a stifling political and ideological orthodoxy. The central tenet of that orthodoxy is that all personal problems of the people in society can be solved by government taxing and spending. The obvious corollary is that since all problems can be solved by taxing and spending, therefore they must be solved by taxing and spending, and anyone who stands in the way of those solutions is immoral.
Elizabeth Cook Rostermundt's three month bicycle tour of Europe in the 1950s was an amazing discovery for a young American and an interesting view of history only about ten years after the most horrific war of all time, WW II. We post this story mainly because it points to recovery from massive war crimes and tremendous suffering and on to making a better world. It is the story of a young woman who was not close to the suffering as she enjoyed the beauty and people of Europe on the road to recovery.
Paul Driessen, CFACT, Roger Bezdek: Saltwater intrusion clearly has been an increasing problem across much of Chesapeake Bay. Climate alarmists attribute this danger to human fossil fuel use. Reality is much different. At least for the Chesapeake region, Houston-Galveston, Texas, area, Santa Clara Valley, California, and other places around the globe, the primary cause of seawater intrusions is not rising oceans – but land subsidence due to groundwater withdrawal and to “glacial isostatic adjustments.”
Sylvestre Huet: Dans sa chronique, Olivier Postel-Vinay prétend faire oeuvre de journaliste spécialisé, capable de lire non seulement les rapports du Giec mais aussi les articles de Nature. En tous cas, s’il lit vraiment les rapports du Giec et les articles des revues scientifiques sur le climat, Postel-Vinay n’est pas un ignorant, c’est donc un menteur. Il ment lorsqu’il écrit: « Le Giec a admis s’être trompé sur l’évolution de la température moyenne globale de la Terre selon les prévisions, continuer d’augmenter régulièrement après 1998, date d’un événement El Niño ».
