Another Failed Prediction From the Global Warming Alarmists

In 2009, the BBC ran a reporting piece on the Arctic featuring the esteemed polar scientist Peter Wadhams of Cambridge University. The Catlin Arctic Survey, a project set out to answer vital scientific questions about sea ice in the Arctic, had just returned with its findings. Its central purpose had been to gather evidence on how long a warming planet could sustain an all-year ice cover at its northern pole: How long did the Arctic ice cover have left? The results, said Wadhams, who has studied the Arctic since the 1970s, were terrifying. The survey supported the “new consensus view that...

Due to the lack of weaponry and ammunition, copious human losses, and destruction of vital military infrastructure the Ukrainian leader started actively seeking for any sort of help from the outside. This is borne out by his numerous callouts to the European Union, NATO, and the international community for ammunition supplies, on top of his decision to create a non-visa regime for anyone who is willing to fight alongside the Ukrainian Armed Forces and far-right...

Beware the ‘Nurse Ratched’ State

Nurse Ratched

Advocates of minimal government have often warned against “The Nanny State,” which rears its ugly head whenever bureaucrats try to tell people what they should do and how they should live. There is a sense in which all governments do that, through the very enactment of laws, but Nanny-leaders mete out prescriptions which vastly exceed what can be fairly portrayed as an attempt to protect people from one another. An extreme example of this sort of overreach occurred in the United States during the Prohibition Era, with catastrophic consequences. Not only did outlawing the enjoyment of...
