Remember the U.N. warning last month, that we have only twelve years left before even a half degree of “global warming” will increase risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people ? Yeah, no Via IBD. Global Warming: Everyone makes mistakes, but some mistakes are bigger than others. That’s the case with a recent study based on a climate model that claimed the oceans had retained 60% more warming than previously thought. It made headlines around the world with its alarming conclusion. The study itself, by no fewer than ten authors, made sweeping claims. The authors wrote that the study held “implications for policy-relevant measurements of the Earth response to climate change, such as...

Next, can we expect authors to sue anyone who writes a negative book review? Via Federalist. If we have such an overwhelming scientific “consensus” about the supposed threat of catastrophic man-made global warming—and about the political and economic solutions to it—then why do advocates have to sue scientists to prevent them from questioning it? That’s the question raised by a $10 million lawsuit lawsuit filed by Stanford engineering professor Mark Z. Jacobson accusing other scientists of defamation for critiquing his scientific work in favor of “renewal energy.” That’s not how science works. That’s not how any of this is supposed to work. Jacobson made a name for himself and became something of a media celebrity for publishing a study in...

More Liberal idiocy from California. How ‘bout lowering taxes, stimulating the economy and increasing job growth? Via Breitbart. The city of Stockton, California, is planning to offer a basic income grant of $500 per month to poor residents, making it the first U.S. city to provide a guaranteed income. Mayor Michael Tubbs announced the program on Wednesday, according to Capital Public Radio. “This is not a handout, it’s a hand up,” he reportedly said. The program is to be privately funded by the Economic Security Project, which Capital Public Radio describes as “a network of researchers, elected leaders, and organizers” and which is run by Facebook co-founder and Barack Obama campaign veteran Chris Hughes. Stockton declared bankruptcy in 2012, a...

**Bumped Up From TAM Wire. Posted by Alain** The Magic School Bus Rides Again series at Netflix has ‘climate change’ episodes that inform kids if they don’t use clean energy, a monster will eat them. Educational for sure. Bet if Conservatives did a show that informed children that Obamacare was designed to kill their parents by making health care too expensive, Hollywood would go up in arms. Via NewsBusters. The Magic School Bus is back in the new Netflix series The Magic School Bus Rides Again! Overall, it’s still a nice, fun 13-episode series like we remember from when we were kids, but with some left turns. There is a pretty predictable take on climate change propaganda for little kids,...

Not sure what Chris Cuomo has in mind, but does he think if we all had given up our cars and rode on bicycles, Hurricane Harvey would not have occurred? Via Daily Caller. Kellyanne Conway took CNN’s Chris Cuomo to task for trying to shift the Hurricane Harvey conversation to climate change during a Wednesday night interview. “One of the themes that’s coming out of this…is opening up a discussion about climate change,” Cuomo said. “Is the president, is the administration, open to that conversation?” Conway brought a high level of sassiness to the conversation, telling Cuomo, “Chris, we’re literally trying to help the people whose lives are under water and you want to have a conversation about climate change.”...

Yes, the resemblance between the two of them is remarkable. Has anyone ever seen Gal Gadot and Hillary in the same room? Just “wondering.” Via American Mirror. ….In a “surprise video” Wednesday in honor of Elizabeth Banks – a Clinton backer, activist and producer – that was shown at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Beverly Hills, Clinton spent much of her 95-second message likening herself to the woman superhero taking the box office by storm, according to the Hollywood Reporter….

I’m not an economist (although I did stay at a Holiday Inn once), but just wondering: Will this free money come from the Money Tree? Via Business Insider. Foreign aid has its place in the quest to eradicate global poverty, but one economist believes free cash can go pretty far, too. John McArthur, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, wrote in a recent blog post that 66 countries in the developing world could theoretically afford to end poverty tomorrow, just by awarding citizens direct cash transfers…. McArthur’s proposed solution involves empowering countries to do more with what they’ve already got. Relying partly on the World Poverty Clock, a real-time ticker of how many people live in poverty worldwide, McArthur finds...

And, in other news, if you try a diet and gain 5 lbs. a week, it’s really a success. Because you didn’t gain ten lbs. Or something. Via NewsBusters. HOORAY! We lost!!! That is becoming the laughable mainstream media theme about many special elections since President Donald Trump’s victory last November. We saw this happen in early March when Politico hailed Democrat performances in special elections despite the fact that there was no net change. The latest iteration of celebrating participation trophies, and likely to be repeated by MSM sources, comes by way of the May 26 edition of Vox in which Matthew Yglesias declared that the loss by the Democrat candidate in the congressional special election was beyond mere...

Newsflash for Mika: Dems are already starting to bash Barack Hussein Obama for his lousy job in “saving” the Dems. Via NewsBusters. MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski gave an fawning interview to former Obama Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett Thursday morning in a harsh reminder of just how differently reporters treated the Obama Administration compared to the current administration. Mika couldn’t contain her excitement at getting to talk to Jarrett even begging the former advisor repeatedly to get herself, Michelle or Barack involved in politics again, to “save the party.”….

Odds are they needed to do some kegels, too. I’m guessing still do. When we look back at the last 8 years when we finally find out exactly how much damage these fools did, we’ll be shocked. The new team has a lot on their plate. I’m confident they’ll succeed. Via Washington Examiner. As the early returns came in looking promising for Trump, Cunnane [a communications staffer] was a little “disturbed” to see the check mark next to Trump’s name signifying he was ahead in the electoral college. But he brushed the feeling aside and joked about the possibility of Trump’s win with other staffers. “Oh no, we’re losing!” he said. But as the bad news kept coming in, he...

Is it just me, or does the silhouette of Obama depicted on the cover of The Nation look like one of the characters from Mystery Science Theater 3000 ? Via Weekly Standard. The Nation is publishing its gala hagiographic Obama send-off issue—”The Obama Years: 2008-2016″—and does so perhaps more in sadness than in celebration. The articles are full of complaint and recriminations—but not, for the most part, aimed at the Dear Leader. There are gripes about the irredeemable electorate, such as the article with the subhead “The president succeeded in repairing our institutions—but millions of Americans wanted to blow them up instead.”…. There is wistfulness: “I Miss Our Sane, Calm, Empathetic, Funny, President Already,” is Katha Pollitt’s headline…. “Before Trump’s...

No, really, this is not from The Onion. Via NewsBusters. …an NBC reporter praised the completion of the first stage of the project as a great example of “showing people that government can still do big things.” This portion of the subway line took 96 years to complete. Now scheduled to open on New Year’s Day, 2017, the line was proposed in 1920. Put on hold because of the Great Depression, the project sputtered along until 2007 when construction restarted in earnest. One of several photos from the line’s checkered history shows Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller breaking ground for its construction in 1972. The 30 block expansion is the largest in 50 years for the aging subway system, with a...
