Just the Facts!


FactCheck.Org

Peep at all the links and see who seems to be distorting more facts. Hint, his name starts with B.O.

Everything you ever wanted to know…


Could this be the. best. link. ever?

Tons of info on AGW, climate change, energy reserves, Al Gore, polar bears and the like.

It’s not porn but it’s pretty darn good. I’m barred up.

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About ANWAR…


…but the Democrats are afraid you’ll ask.

ANWAR in Alaska overlaid on the lower forty-eight states:

Alaska, USA, Coastal Plain

Alaska, USA, Coastal Plane

ANWAR is orange, the coastal plain, where we want to drill for the oil we already know it there, is yellow.

Here’s the pic the Democrats and eco-tards (But, I’m being redundant, and am repeating myself) always show to exhibit why we shouldn’t despoil this pristine wilderness:

ANWAR, Glorious ANWAR

ANWAR, Glorious ANWAR

Of course, no reasonable American would want to ruin that view with oil rigs. Problem is, this is what the coastal plain looks like:

Desolate ANWAR Coastal Plain

Desolate ANWAR Coastal Plane

Not only that, but the section of the hundreds of thousands of acres of coastal plain we want to drill on is… a couple of thousand acres.

I say fuck it. Let’s drill the son of a bitch. Someone alert McCain, because he’s an ignoramus about ANWAR.

UPDATE: Plane/Plain. Whatever. English is an idiotic language.

Since we’re showing old vids today…


Christopher Horner.

Challenge to any Lefties who stumble across this. We’ve helped you with that second link. Debate the facts he presents.

Note there are three more parts to that vid.

UPDATE:

Something more recent and timely. An example of what would have to be done to follow Kyoto and where industry may be headed.

Link.

Obama’s old plane. BO’s new plane. What happened to the flag?


Wait. So the Star Spangled Banner ‘forces’ him to turn away, hands by side. Political pressure forces him to re-adopt the flag lapel. And as for the flag itself?

God Schools Engineers in Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics


It seems streamlining as human engineers have understood it thus far, has a few shortcomings.

“Dolphins and whales have evolved over millions of years to maximize efficiency of movement through water. The human species has been trying to perfect streamlined designs for barely a century. Biologists and engineers, applying biomimicry, studied the flippers, fins and tails of whales and dolphins, and have discovered some features of their structure that contradict long-held engineering theories.

The shape of whale flippers with one bumpy edge has inspired the creation of a completely novel design for wind turbine blades. This design has been shown to be more efficient and also quieter, but defies traditional engineering theories.

Dr Frank Fish of West Chester University says that the shape of whale flippers has inspired the creation of a completely novel design for wind turbine blades.”

Well, duh. If you take the natural philosopher’s approach (Newton called himself a natural philosopher), you’ll learn from nature versus your own puny self.

NOTE: A natural philosopher looks only at God-givens, and makes all deductions from that.

Speaking Truth to Charity: Africa Gives the World Nothing but AIDS


How hard do you think the leftards will come down on this guy?

“No. It will not do. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since Ethiopia’s (and Bob Geldof’s) famous Feed The World campaign, and in that time Ethiopia’s population has grown from 33.5 million to 78 million today.

So why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none. To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn’t count.

One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, yet again, of another wide-eyed child, yet again, gazing, yet again, at the camera, which yet again, captures the tragedy of . . .

Sorry. My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially. Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a priapic, Kalashnikov-bearing hearty, siring children whenever the whim takes him.

There is, no doubt a good argument why we should prolong this predatory and dysfunctional economic, social and sexual system; but I do not know what it is. There is, on the other hand, every reason not to write a column like this.

It will win no friends, and will provoke the self-righteous wrath of, well, the self-righteous, letter-writing wrathful, a species which never fails to contaminate almost every debate in Irish life with its sneers and its moral superiority. It will also probably enrage some of the finest men in Irish life, like John O’Shea, of Goal; and the Finucane brothers, men whom I admire enormously. So be it.

But, please, please, you self-righteously wrathful, spare me mention of our own Famine, with this or that lazy analogy. There is no comparison. Within 20 years of the Famine, the Irish population was down by 30pc. Over the equivalent period, thanks to western food, the Mercedes 10-wheel truck and the Lockheed Hercules, Ethiopia’s has more than doubled.”

My mother’s side of our family – Daugherty is mom’s maiden name – were Irish potato famine refugees. I can attest to the event only a few generations removed. People died eating grass and strips of leather in Ireland! Curiously, Bob Geldof was not there to raise money for them, so those who could left… and those who couldn’t died, or barely survived.

This article is almost inhumanly harsh, but it’s right on the money. Expect faux outrage and crocodile tears from all of the usual suspects.
