London’s Independent newspaper has scrubbed its most downloaded article in its history–“Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past”

“Climate science” is an area of relentlessly shifting claims, predictions, and threats. Hundreds of bizarre, apocalyptic claims have been made by governments and government-supported scientists pursuing the catastrophic-manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 theory. Now the innovative journalist James Delingpole reports that the most ludicrous “news” article in the history of London’s Independent newspaper–the March 2000 article with the headline …

“Climate science” papers are mostly about politics

by Roger I. Roots, J.D., Ph.D., founder of Lysander Spooner University Many of my friends are true believers in the prevailing pan-government theory that manmade-global-warming-by-carbon-dioxide will soon cause the earth to melt down and all or most humans to fry and die on the surface. Interestingly, they avoid actual scientific debate on the subject. The …

Heller: the “melting Arctic” scam is now on its last legs

The relentless temp data analyst Tony Heller has tracked claims that the Arctic is melting for years. As the “mainstream” (meaning pro-government) news media has amped up claims that manmade global warming is melting ice in the Arctic away to nothing, Heller has repeatedly published satellite data showing the contrary.

Another fake study: billionaires secretly promote libertarianism

America’s government-supporting colleges and universities spew a steady stream of pro-government academic “research.” Recent revelations show that it is ridiculously easy to get fake “scientific” studies published in government-supported peer reviewed scholarly journals–so long as the studies support government expansion and intervention. Now a trio of government-trusting academics have produced a “study” purporting to show …

BBC goes full Orwell: The official government TV network of Britain will no longer show climate skepticism

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) will no longer show any content which might cast doubt on the government theory of catastrophic-manmade-global-warming-by-CO2. See here.

Government scientists whose research disagrees with government must now publish their findings secretly

There has been an unwritten rule among U.S. federal agencies (especially during the Obama years) that no “science” which disagrees with the prevailing message of manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 hysteria is allowed to be published by the government. So a U.S. Forest Service researcher was forced to publish his countervailing climate research under alias names. He observed that …

Government university now bans “harsh” text messages

It is mostly forgotten that government colleges were originally launched for three reasons: (1) to provide access for poor people to higher education, (2) to counteract the supposed tendency of private (mostly church-owned) colleges to stifle speech and expression, and (3) to provide for more ‘public interest’ scientific research and education, which supposedly wasn’t being …

Over half of all witnesses testifying before congressional committees are government-funded; and almost all request more funding

Over half the witnesses testifying before committees of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives [are] funded directly by the federal taxpayer. In 1995, 35 percent of witnesses were federal employees; of the remaining “public” witnesses, one of every three was a government grant recipient. Grant recipients testified during the 104th Congress roughly 6,000 times: …
