Warning: The items in this column, though weird, surreal, distasteful and kooky, are by no means aberrations. Really. Lefties think like this.

Fun fact: When he wasn’t bedding his slaves, “purchasing” Louisiana and warring against peaceful Muslim trading ships, Thomas Jefferson was a proto-environmentalist. So were the other Founding Male-Identifying Parents. Joe Romm, at ThinkProgress tells us so.
The only thing better than being lectured about Independence day by a liberal is being lectured about Independence Day by liberal who anachronistically insists the Framers shared his obsessions. So Romm’s article is a real treat — hysterical in both senses of the word.
It’s also, of course…

Sheer, utter madness. It’s got to stop.

After Barbie maker Mattel introduced its “gender-neutral Barbie” abominations in September, some lefties have voiced their disapproval, saying the new toy line is too “playful” and not woke enough.
Truly, a time is coming when Play-Dough will be the only acceptable toy on the market.
Alex Myers, the trans writer of the Slate op-ed, who should probably make the career switch from journalist to woke toy company quality control specialist, didn’t really approve of Mattel’s latest foray into woke capitalism. Myers, “deeply skeptical” of the business decision, slammed the toy, saying, “On a basic level, the doll falls far short of actually embodying or even representing a nonbinary identity.” Ouch Mattel, not a hot review from your target demographic.
But then again, how does one represent mental illness in a plastic doll?
First, Myers pointed out that calling the new dolls “Gender-Neutral” is…

HANSEN 1988 CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY
WITH COMMENTARY AFTER PARAGRAPH# 29
- Congressional Testimony of Dr. James Hansen, June 23, 1988
On June 23, 1988, James Hansen of the NASA Goddard Space Institute gave testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
- Opening Statement to the Committee, by Dr. James Hansen, Director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies: Mr. Chairman and committee members, thank you for the opportunity to present the results of my research on the greenhouse effect which has been carried out with my colleagues at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. I would like to draw three main conclusions. Number one, the earth is warmer in 1988 than at any time in the history of instrumental measurements. Number two, the global warming is now large enough that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect…

The exact opposite of forecasts from NOAA, the past seven months had the coldest October-April afternoons in the US in over a century. It was also the wettest. In this video, Tony Heller shows how many problems this creates for climate alarmists. Thjs video also replaces an earlier version in which he incorrectly stated that it was the coldest on record.
Stray current from French wind turbines is killing cattle and their owners are furious. Electricity in the wrong place at the wrong time is a natural born killer. For the best part of a century electricity was generated in an orderly, systematic manner. Over the last decade or so obsession with wind and solar has led to generation chaos, on every level.
Having a field full of 300 tonne monsters, 200m tall with 60m blades, capable of generating 3-5MW, simply isn’t compatible with a whole range of agricultural pursuits. Croppers can no longer use aerial spraying to control pests and weeds, for example.
Horses, nervous creatures at the best of times, find the pulsing cacophony intolerable (see our post here).
But, for French beef farmers, it’s what’s discharged below ground that’s doing the damage to their dwindling herds.
French farmers say their cattle are dying from electricity generated by…

I find this whole event extremely disturbing...the left has not left Election 2016 behind. Our liberties are at stake here. There are people actually condemning the kids for wearing MAGA hats...and participating in a Right to Life march - IN A FREE COUNTRY...because it's too dangerous. But who is making it dangerous? Not the right. … Continue reading OFF TOPIC: Nathan Phillips says “School chants should be in school”

A careful look at the early 20th century global warming, which is almost as large as the warming since 1950. Until we can explain the early 20th century warming, I have little confidence IPCC and NCA4 attribution statements regarding the cause of the recent warming.

Booker runs with the North Devon AONB story this week:
Such a national treasure is the coast of North Devon that for 50 years it has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB); with the local authorities required to produce successive management plans to protect it.
But their latest version strikes a curious new note. “One of the most significant pressures on the environment of South West England,” they now say, is “climate change”, as “reflected in hotter and drier summers, warmer and wetter winters with more extreme weather and increased flood risk, compounded by sea level rise”. If this rings a bell, it is that it precisely echoes claims long familiar from the Met Office.
But where is the evidence to support them? That meticulous analyst Paul Homewood, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, has checked each claim against graphs compiled from the Met Office’s own…
