MIT to Obama: Only 4 years
left to stop global warming

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/11/2013 10:21:23 AM

In a bruising open letter to President Obama, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is urging the administration to give up its bungled, politically-driven green energy program to focus exclusively on new taxes and industries aimed at fixing global warming. "You have the power and the opportunity to lay the groundwork for a new clean-energy policy that will help us avoid the worst consequences of climate change," said the letter, published in the MIT Technology Review. "It is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late."

It is so disturbing that once respected institutions are prostituting themselves in supporting the fraud that is global warming. I say again, it gets to the point that you can´t believe anything you read anymore because you don´t know if it really is based on facts or it is pure propaganda.

If they would just go ahead and call it a religion they could admit they care nothing for the scientific method and quit lying about it.

The article does not say WHO wrote the letter. Obviously the SCHOOL did not write the letter, someone at the school wrote it. Maybe the ??? (I´d say janitor, but I don´t want to insult them).

I sympathize w/ Karen - MIT was once an *objective* university...

Somewhat less than amusing to see how often the ´science´ behind this scam is debunked - to be countered simply with louder ´warnings´. No ´dire warning´ issued by *any* authority - most notably the IPCC - has come to pass, nor as *any* empirically proven thesis been offered, and the trolls keep on trolling. Nothing sells like ´salvation´ - or more accurately - nothing taxes like the intangible.

Global warming? Not a snowball´s chance in Hell.

You´re more likely to see some loud-mouthed ´greenie´ sell his opinion outlet to Islamist fossil fuel hustlers...

Wait...that was last week. Next bug-a-boo?

Yes, who is this from? What "facts" are they citing? What effect, acting alone, will the U.S. economic collapse as a result of acting on this fraud have on Climate....oh, I know, the Chinese, Indians and other nations who give this whole issue the bottom of the shoe will gain and we´ll lose, problem solved. Meanwhile, climate and nature go their happy way.

Thank you Poster #9, I didn´t know of Richard Lindzen. For those who are wondering, according to Wikpedia Richard Lindzen is a atmospheric physicist and Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "He is a well known skeptic concerning catastrophic global warming[2] and critic of what he states are political pressures on climate scientists to conform to what he has called climate alarmism."

The mag is not the school, but has some sort of affiliation. It has the typical left lean, I think the newest editor is a total lefty, so this kind of stuff is just part of the package.

Poppycock. Greenland was green 1000 years ago. Check out Greenland´s temperature history.

By the way, which nerd speaks for MIT? And why is it "four years". Greenland was warmer for 400 years, from 800-1200 AD.

Do they mean that Global Warming that stopped of its own accord 14 years ago with the Sun´s natural cycle? And forced them to rename the phenomenon "climate change" because there was no such thing as warming?

I´m an MIT casualty (alumnus) and clearly recall all the Commie utopia crap that passed for political insight there during the 1980s. "Eat the Rich" was popular basement graffiti, second only to "No Toad Sexing Allowed" in ubiquity around campus. (Clearly economics is one area that "MIT" is not synonymous with genius or wisdom.)

There has not been consensus on ´global warming´ among the atmospheric science professors there, much less globally. And much of what I´ve seen from the climate-change alarmists has failed to rise to the minimal standards of scientific discipline that was taught to us as freshmen there.

Not to worry...everyone open the windows and doors of your homes and turn your air conditioning to cool on full blast. We´ll have everything cooled down before sundown today!!

There, that will fix the problem, is a realistic solution, and is based on facts and physics as much as the ridiculous headline of this article!!!

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

Politico: Dr. Ben Carson´s Talent

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
