It’s Déjà Doom All Over Again: ‘The Fate of the Earth’ and Global Warming Hysteria

Not so long ago, writers, editors, concerned world citizens and deep thinkers of all kinds were consumed with the idea of a coming global catastrophe that seemed implacable and virtually unavoidable. When it comes to covering today’s debates on global warming, we might want to take a step back and recall this earlier, somewhat chillier 1980s obsession with the fate of the earth – that is, of course, The Fate of the Earth, the title of a three-part series by Jonathan Schell first published in The New Yorker, then republished as a popular book by Alfred A. Knopf in 1982.

Grassley, Smith: Make Lawyers Pay for Frivolous Suits

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and Iowan Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, are taking action against frivolous lawsuits.”The Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act, which we introduced Wednesday, evens the playing field by imposing monetary sanctions against attorneys who file frivolous suits,” the duo writes on Politico. “The bill simply says that cases brought to court must be based on facts and reasonable interpretations of the law.”

Obama Unions a Microcosm of Liberalism: Parasites Devouring Their Host

When Obama predictably stood up for Wisconsin unions, he didn’t create sympathy but merely cast a spotlight upon bygone methods and absurdly selfish goals. Unions typically represent the proposition that, regardless of the underlying economic state, their power and wealth is sacrosanct. Such obscene leftist power-brokering led to the demise of Detroit as the world’s automobile capital. It is time we defang and emasculate these anachronisms of Marxism. Foolhardy attempts by Barack to steer America back to the glory days of Norma Rae‘s nest of socialist maggots is doomed to fail. Labor union cliches are so dated they are as embarrassing to hear recited as an ancient prayer from a long-dead cult.

No One Should Be Forced to Join a Union

Even as they scream for “workers’ rights,” the one workers’ right that union bosses despise is the right to work. Big Labor and its overwhelmingly Democratic allies oppose a woman’s right to choose whether or not to join a union. Instead, they prefer that predominantly male employers and labor leaders make that choice for her.

American Council on Science and Health (ACSH)

The American Council on Science and health was founded in 1978 by a group of scientists who had become concerned that many important public policies related to health and the environment did not have a sound scientific basis. These scientists created the organization to add reason and balance to debates about public health issues and to bring common sense views to the public.ACSH is a national, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) consumer health education and advocacy organization based in New York City.

ACSH’s mission is to ensure that peer-reviewed mainstream science reaches the public, the media, and the decision-makers who determine public policy. Our objective is to restore science and common sense to personal and public health decisions, in order to foster a scientifically sound and sensible public health policy for the American people. ACSH is committed to improving communication and dialogue between the scientific/medical community and the public and the media, in an effort to ensure that the coverage of health issues is based on scientific facts – not hyperbole, emotion and ideology.

“Deconstructing Obama”-Jack Cashill

Deconstructing Obama is an important book, one that unravels significant parts of the fabric of Barrack Obama’s contrived and closely guarded personal history. Candidate Obama’s stature rested to an extraordinary degree on his first autobiography, Dreams from my Father. Cashill convincingly demonstrates that the claimed authorship of Dreams is a fraud, the most politically significant literary fraud in history.

Legal vs. Moral

What do you say when someone throws the “But abortion is legal” mantra at you? Let me begin by telling you a little about a piece from the L.A. Times last Friday, February 17. It’s entitled “War Against a Woman’s Right.” Obviously, it is about abortion because women’s rights now pretty much focus on the issue of abortion. This is an editorial piece that reflects on some recent fires at abortion clinics. It makes a couple of comments.
