About Ganesh, The Symbol of This Blog

While this site has nothing to do with Hinduism, the symbolism of the Hindu deity Ganesh is fitting. Ganesh has an elephant’s head and a human body. He listens well because he has big ears. He has a small mouth so he doesn’t talk too much. He is revered as the remover of obstacles and the deva of intellect and wisdom. He is associated with the first “chakra” (a center of human spiritual energy) that is the wellspring of survival and material well-being.

Hard Truth and Hope in the Story of Job

Clearing the Air on Climate Change

Joe Biden, the permanent bureaucracy, the Democratic Party, their cheerleaders in the mainstream media, and the global elites - the types who each year flock to Davos for a meeting of the World Economic Forum - tell us that climate change is an existential threat to humanity. They...

Why we must speak out against wokeness and how

If you are like me, you are sick of the smug, ignorant, destructive drivel from the “Woke” crowd. “Wokeness” connotes exquisite sensitivity to racial or social discrimination and injustice, as defined by the beholder. Niggling questions about what constitutes discrimination and injustice, what...

What scientists think they know about what drives the Earth’s Climate System, the role of CO2, and the contribution of man-caused CO2 emissions

Overview … climate change is a permanent feature of planet Earth; any human impact that might be occurring is probably too small to discern against a background of natural variability (Singer, p. 118.There remain many uncertainties about how the climate system works, but scientists believe that...

Why the official climate change narrative is false

There ae two reasons. First, the models don’t match what has actually happened, and second, the Summary for Policymakers (SPM) misrepresents what the science says as reported in the IPCC’s AR5.The theoretical models used to predict future warming are not consistent with atmospheric observations;...
