Warming Scientists? Get Your Story Straight...

WASHINGTON -- The Earth's temperature has climbed to levels not seen in thousands of years, warming that has begun to affect plants and animals, researchers said yesterday.
A report in the latest issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said the recent warming has brought global temperature to a level within about one degree Celsius of the maximum temperature of the past million years.
The Earth has been warming at a rate of 0.2 degrees C per decade for the last 30 years, according to the research team at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.
Okay guys which is it? 30 years, thousands of years or a million years?
Where was the thermometer that Fred and Barney used a million years ago? In the Smithsonian? Is the granite indicator needle stuck on the temperature of the day?

Maybe the temperature started increasing when these scientists got out of grad school and started spouting their baloney.

Ryder Cup Bias

A person can love America without liking their media.
Americans are brave, friendly, generous, honest (overall), fun, hardworking, etc.
But their media is as biased and yellow as pravda or the ceeb.
Yesterday, after Darren Clarke had chipped in to beat Tiger Woods just before Paul Casey got an Acey to seal his match, the Golf Channel's comment was "from the sublime to the ridiculous".
Of course, if the Yanks had pulled this magic off, the comment would have been something like "from the amazing to the heroic".
I know this post doesn't fit here, but I'm afraid to start a sports blog. Way too serious and might be harmful to my health (Leaf fans are dangerous doncha know).

Great News - We have enough cowards of our own..

I'm sure Jack Layton will be all atwitter over this.

An American war deserter who sought refugee status in Canada will be returning to the U.S. to face the music -- but don't mistake that for surrender, says a war resister spokesman.
Darrell Anderson fled to Canada two years ago after serving seven months in Iraq.

Humans Have Become Grief Junkies

Looking at the Ceeb this morning I am reminded how shallow our species is and how much we wallow and try to make ourselves as individuals feel special.
Dawson College is festooned with flowers, crowded with sad looking kids trying to get in front of a camera to show how compassionate they are (or to complain against the authorities).
Reminds me of the millions (billions) who were in great pain after Diana, estranged wife of the heir to the realm but contemporary celebrity, got in a car with a drunk driver and died in a car accident.
Media loves grief. They, like their interviewees, wallow in it. It makes a great story.
Grief is individual. No person can share this with you unless they were in the same circle with the deceased.
Dropping flowers or teddy bears at a media appointed grief site, and mugging for the camera doesn't show how compassionate a person is, it shows how trivial they are.
And how much they want to be noticed.

Aha - The Mount Saint Vincent Cartoon Conspiracy Revealed

Looks like pro-islamism and anti-Americanism is rampant at a Catholic university in Halifax...

Then - the Effect on Feb 8, 2006:
Saint Mary's University administrators have told philosophy professor Peter March to remove editorial caricatures depicting Islam's Prophet Muhammad from the front of his office door. March says he was making a point about freedom of expression after the infamous caricatures, originally published in a Danish newspaper, led to worldwide violence.

Today in The Star:
Prof. Reginald Stuart of Mount Saint Vincent University said Rice’s visit signifies the closer ties that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has fostered with the U.S. administration of President George W. Bush.

From CTV website on Feb 2, 2006
Randi Warne, a religious studies professor at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, said non-Muslims should try to empathize with the outrage Muslims feel.
"I think we should ask ourselves how people would feel in the West if pictures of Jesus were being drawn this way, committing heinous acts or in compromising positions," she told CTV Atlantic.
"I'm quite sure that there would be outrage all around the world."

Sasha Trudeau Criticizes Canadian Human Rights Record

Spare us these damnable little Trudeaus.
A few weeks ago little Sasha wrote a glowing article in praise of Fidel Castro, who in his 46 years of being a Marxist dictator has murdered hundreds of thousands and imprisoned millions.
Here's a link to my piece on that trudeau tragic travesty.
Today on the CFRB John Moore Show he was railing against Canadian's imprisoning evidenced islamic terrorists.
What a hypocrite, what a waste of air time and ink.
In Cuba, if he was Cuban and said the same sort of thing against Fidel, he'd we welcomed to Villa Marista, Fidel's Lubianka equivalent. And be rotting in hell.
