'Climate Change' Being Put In Its Place

After a short stint (two decades?) of wild-eyed hysteria having seized the scientific community around the globe, mature reflection and a sincere and thoughtful attempt at understanding settle back in.  Understanding that there's a whole lot that we don't know about climate.

We not including Al Gore, of course.

With that one exception, this is a positive evolution:
New climate science vindicates global warming skeptics
By: Matt Patterson, Washington Examiner

Commonly known as "anthropogenic" global warming, the theory holds that human activity has delivered sufficient amounts of carbon into the atmosphere to trap the sun's radiation, causing the Earth to warm.

Some activists have even claimed that this warming is a threat to the very existence of our civilization, and painted dire scenarios whereby our great cities will be overwhelmed by deluge as glaciers and ice caps melt and sea levels rise. There was no room to doubt this theory: The science, we were told, was "settled."

Turns out, it wasn't settled at all. [link]
There are a lot of "scientists" around the planet who will be tough to convince, they being heavily invested in the theory that human-induced global warming is going to destroy us all (characterized by the likes of James Hansen, who, as a scientist, should be ashamed of himself).

But the science will out.

And the James Hansens and the Al Gores will be sent into forced retirement.

And the world - particularly that part occupied by the planet's scientists - will be the better for it.

This isn't funny anymore.

Union thug - and close friend of Barack Obama - James Hoffa on Monday:

"We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face -- a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party. And there's only one way to beat and win that war -- the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight."


Yeah, That'll Teach 'Em

Another gun buyback program? Really?

No. Not really.

This one is actually a toy buyback program.

Instituted by a handful of mush-for-brains liberals up in New York, where such stunts are popular and mush-for-brains is the norm.

Get this:
Gun buyback for kids? It’s about toys . . . and pizza
By Gene Warner, Buffalo News

This was a different kind of gun buyback program.

The guns being bought back from the streets weren’t 9 mm handguns or Glocks. Instead, they were Nerf guns or toy pistols.

And they weren’t being bought with cash. This time, the currency was pizza slices, notebooks and dress shirts.

The FATHERS group and Bona Pizza teamed up Monday for a buyback aimed at younger teens and preteens at the pizzeria at Bailey and Kensington avenues.

The idea was simple: Don’t let kids get used to firing weapons, even if they’re toys.

“It makes them too comfortable, holding that gun,” said Leonard Lane, president of Fathers Armed Together to Help, Educate, Restore and Save. “Then there’s no fear holding the real gun when they get older. We want to put that fear back into our children, teaching them what guns can do, how they affect their community.”

“A toy gun today, a real gun tomorrow,” said Charles Cina, owner of Bona Pizza. “That’s what we want to stop.” [link
It's worth mentioning that the population of Buffalo, New York has declined dramatically in recent decades, what with no intelligent life having been found there.

So a kid turns in a Nerf gun for a slice of pizza?  And the world will be a better place for it?

Yeah.  That'll work.


Me?  I went out the other day and bought young Kaid and Chase (both nine years old) a pneumatic .177 caliber pellet rifle (Daisy Powerline) (with scope).  Kaid spent the day firing at targets mounted in a BB trap across the driveway.

Great time had by all.

With lessons learned along the way about proper gun safety and the importance of being very careful with a loaded weapon.

You decide.  Pizza slices in exchange for Nerf guns or mentoring offered that engenders a healthy respect for the machinery in hand?

I don't think there's even a decision to be made.
