RyanCare not delivering on ObamaCare reform, repeal, replace?

“Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), a leading GOP senator, is warning his friend House Speaker Paul Ryan to “take a pause” and slow down when it comes to healthcare reform.” click here

Time to move on from Starbucks?

Not sure what to make of this:

“Swiss financial services company Credit Suisse is warning that coffee giant Starbucks’ announcement of a plan to hire 10,000 Muslim refugees has clearly hurt the company by negatively impacting sales and damaging the company’s brand.” click here

Climates Change! The charge of”climate change denial” is complete nonsense

There are legitimate disagreements over climate science and the usefulness of climate models. Scientists on all sides of any climate issue are all working from the same observational data except when governments refuse to release data as in the case of ClimateGate. Then climate science is distorted.

The climate has changed, is changing, and will change in the future.  The media mantra that so and so is just a climate change denier is complete nonsense. In this case (here) it is the EPA administrator who is being attacked. Whatever EPA does one way or the other will have no meaningful effect on how climates change. These sorts of name calling attacks occur when the name calling accuser has little to no science to back their position. At this point it’s all about protecting the institution or agency’s government funding and little to do with science.

First MIT climate program priority? Protect funding…

The MIT letter (here) objecting to the letter sent by Richard Lindzen and other scientists is a good example of what happens when government funding gets out of control. Programs such as MIT depend on it.  Dr. Lindzen has responded here.  MIT is hardly to blame as other institutions would take the very same action if major government funding depends on maintaining and advancing a particular point of view (dogma). Until science is once again the focus no meaningful progress will be made towards lasting solutions to real problems resulting from climate changes.

 

Will President Trump keep his campaign promises?

“President Trump should keep his campaign promise and rescind or otherwise withdraw the United States from President Obama’s purported commitment to the Paris climate pact, made in September 2016 on his way out the door. There are several ways of doing so, but the plainly superior option is to extricate the United States from the UN-orchestrated world of climate diplomacy entirely. The dishonest, unconstitutional process in which the Paris agreement has been advanced demonstrates why.” click here for full article at WUWT

A near sighted Mr. John McCain is now confused

“The feud between President Donald Trump and Senator John McCain is heating up.  The protagonists on both sides of this fight are intense and determined, and yet if we dig beneath the personalities, we can see an even deeper conflict—an ultimate conflict of visions.  And that clash of worldviews, in turn, is full of implications for the behavior of the Deep State in the months and years to come.” click here  

Mr. Barack Obama to lead democrat insurgency?

Looks like a duck….

“When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.” click here
