The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

The Liberal Extinction Project

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen: People worried about the climate crisis are deciding not to have children because of fears that their offspring would have to struggle through a climate apocalypse, according to the first academic study of the issue. The researchers surveyed 600 people aged 27 to 45 who were already factoring […]

How Desperate Do You Have to Be?

  Even if you could get laid this way, would it be worth it? People on OKCupid are swiping right on climate action — or something? I’ve never used a dating app. But I do know the company has filters so you can get rid of climate deniers when you’re searching for someone, whether it’s […]

‘Threatened Species’

  In May last year — late fall in the inverted seasons Down Under — an official of Australia’s National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) in New South Wales (NSW) wanted the public to know that it was a crime for them to collect firewood for the winter: NPWS Central West Area Manager Fiona Buchanan […]

The Cult of Climate ‘Science’

While environmentalists claim these fires prove the […]

The evidence Dreher offered was perhaps not conclusive, but I have little expertise in autism so am not qualified to judge. However, it’s been reported that the teenage Swedish […]

Climate Change Cult Update

We must do something — something very expensive, involving untold trillions of dollars of taxpayer money — and do it immediately, or else global warming will […]

AOC: Fossil Fuels Are Racist or Something

  White people are killing brown people with global warming: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put a racial spin Wednesday on climate change and hurricanes, attributing emissions from “predominantly white” corporations and communities for juicing recent storms that cost “predominantly black and brown lives” in Louisiana and Puerto Rico. Even as House Republicans argued that cheap electricity […]
