Brian Merchant’s article at Vice.com’s Motherboard blog, “Apocalypse Neuro: Why Our Brains Don’t Process the Gravest Threats to Humanity” discusses the ways primitive brains just can’t handle the looming threat of climate […]

Felt like I needed to do something non-political to clear my head a bit, and while surfing the web I came across this article: Sir David Attenborough picks 10 animals he would take on his ark For those who don’t know, Sir David Attenborough is the face and voice of a multitude of BBC nature […]

I had the misfortune of sitting amongst a group of left wing Chris Van Hollen supporters while recording video of debates between candidates running in MD-6 and MD-8 this evening. I was able to keep my mouth shut…for the most part. After the debates, while I was packing up my video gear, there was one […]

You may have seen my earlier post with the video of Lord Christopher Monckton using math and logic to destroy the alleged reasons for PlanMaryland (aka Plan Fairyland).

This will certainly draw the obligatory ad hominem attacks from left wing Koolaid aficionados but if you pay attention you’ll see that even using the flawed assumptions of the global warming zealots, O’Malley’s PlanMaryland (a.k.a. Plan Fairyland) is a fraud. It’s a power grab masquerading as environmental policy. The math just doesn’t work. Here’s Governor […]
