If General Relativity were Written Today

—– Nature and other peer-review journals would send letters like this: Dear Dr. Einstein: Thank you for your submission.  However, as you well know, the scientific consensus maintains that light propagates through the medium of luminiferous aether. These real-world measurements of sunlight are irrelevant; when the data is entered into the computer programs which we wrote, […]

“Earth Day” *sigh*

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am a dedicated conservationist.  I do not “Earth Day.”  One part of being a true conservationist–someone dedicated to maintaining a healthy ecosystem to pass on to our descendants–that most people don’t know: I LOATHE environmentalists. But wait, aren’t those the same thing?  No, they bloody well are […]

In Vivo vs. In Vitro

So, many people are no longer aware of this, but there are basically two types of observation which may be made in science: ‘in vitro’ and ‘in vivo’. ‘In vitro’ is Latin for ‘in the glass’, and originally referred to reactions observed in cultures in a Petri dish. However, by extension, it refers to observations […]

Found Draft

I was just doing some year-end blog-cleaning, and ran across this draft from… quite a while ago. I’m going to go ahead and publish it now, despite being very much incomplete, and perhaps I’ll get around to addressing the article itself in the future. Missed opportunity? The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology has released an […]

Conversations with a Climate Alarmist

(Paraphrased for brevity and clarity) Alarmist: The climate denier’s claim that there has been an 18-year pause in Global Warming is false. Look at the anomalies from 1996 to now; the data doesn’t support it. Me: First, what’s “Global Warming”? I though that was “unscientific”now, and everyone had to use “Global Climate Disruption”. Pick a […]

Coldest Antarctic June in Recorded History

So, we’ve had some cold nasty winters lately. And the story being pushed by the communists–oh, sorry, “scientists”–pushing AGW hypothesis is that warm air is dislocating the cold air from the poles, which is then being driven toward the equator. This cold air then gives us nasty winters… But the EARTH STILL HAS THAT FEVER!!! […]

Obfuscation

About four years ago, I made a post on Facebook about the rising atmospheric CO2 concentration, and the lack of corresponding rise in global average temperature. The information was so easy to come by, I didn’t even think that it was worthy of a blog entry. Flash forward to today. It took me hours of […]

An Unsettling Climate

City Journal has published an excellent article on AGW hypothesis and downfall of modern science. Those of you who hold science to high standards will find the read unsurprising, but informative. Those of you who think that “man-made global warming” is a real thing because someone told you that “there’s a scientific consensus” (or some […]
