The study being cited is from a Ph.D. thesis in the Netherlands. However, a basic rule of research is the following: Correlation does not prove causation For example, if you ask 1,000 people with chronic back pain if they prefer brushing their teeth with Crest or with Colgate, and you then determine that 95% of them prefer Colgate, you have a very strong correlation. However, can you then conclude that brushing one’s teeth with Colgate causes chronic back pain? Um…no. Via Daily Caller. The media is touting a new study claiming global warming could be, at least in part, to blame for the “diabetes epidemic” sweeping the globe. “When it gets warmer, there is higher incidence of diabetes,” Lisanne Blauw,...

Wasn’t this a 1950’s movie, ‘The Incredible Shrinking Animals’ ? Or something. Via Telegraph. Animals could start shrinking because of global warming, scientists have predicted, after discovering that mammals became ‘dwarfed’ in a similar episode of climate change 50 million years ago. Paleontologists discovered the fossil teeth belonging to an early ancestor of modern horses as well as a rabbit-sized hoofed mammal. The teeth revealed that during Eocene Thermal Maximum 2, a warming event of around 3C that occurred approximately 53.7 million years ago, the animals shrank in size by 14 per cent…. “This suggests that dwarfing will be a likely natural response of some mammals to future global warming.”

I’m not sure that President-Elect Trump’s taking a congratulatory phone call from the Taiwanese President is “how wars gets started.” But listening to the entire Rachel Maddow rant? Definitely the way a migraine headache gets started.

No word yet, though, on what Howard Dean thinks of Rep. Keith Ellison, BFF of vicious racist and Jew-hater Louis Farrakhan, running for head of the DNC. Via Breitbart. Former Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean called incoming White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor Stephen K. Bannon a “Nazi” on Sunday during an interview with journalist Evan Solomon of Canada’s CTV. Appearing on CTV’s Question Period, Dean commented on President-elect Donald J. Trump’s recent appointments. “He’s a complicated guy,” Dean said, referring to Trump. “He appoints a reasonable person, who’s much more conservative than I am, but someone you can talk to, as his Chief of Staff — and then the senior’s adviser’s a Nazi,” Dean exclaimed…. “You called...

According to Jehmu, if the Clinton Foundation closes, there will be no more HIV or malaria meds in the world. But Donald Trump engages in fear-mongering? Got it. Via BizPac Review. Far-left social justice warrior Jehmu Greene, who once referred to Tucker Carlson as a “bow-tying white boy,” fears the closing of the Clinton Foundation will lead to the death of her family…. “It’s going to operating costs because it’s an operating foundation,” Greene said. “I’m sorry, I’m uncomfortable sitting here knowing people in my family are going to die because everyone wants to lie about what this Clinton Foundation. That’s the fact. That’s the fact.”…. “Yes it’s the appearance,” she admitted. “Goodbye to HIV-AIDS medication, goodbye to malaria medications,...

With such a riveting, in-depth piece of investigative journalism, probably will earn a Pulitzer Prize. Or something. Via NewsBusters. CBS This Morning on Monday eagerly hyped a new expose by the Washington Post: As a child, Donald Trump pulled pigtails and threw rocks at kids. This is the same Washington Post that went after Mitt Romney for allegedly forcing a haircut on another boy in 1965. Talking to reporters Marc Fisher and Michael Kranish, CBS co-host Norah O’Donnell wondered, “You go all the way back to his childhood to help reveal some of Donald Trump. What did you learn?” Post editor Marc Fisher revealed the not-so-startling revelations: “We learned as he once said, he hasn’t changed since second grade. Keep...

Oh darn, we missed “Earth Overshoot Day,” on Monday. I guess we were too busy “overexploiting the planet,” or, as normal people call it, just leading our lives. Well, there’s always next year. That is, if we haven’t “overexploited” the planet out of existence. Or something. Via Breitbart. “We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than forests can sequester,” the group exclaims on its website. “On August 8, 2016, we will have used as much from nature as our planet can renew in the whole year,” GFN announces. According to a breathless article in the French daily Le Monde, complete with infographics, we would...
