Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a great new year to follow.

I have known for quite some time that the second hand smoke (SHS) claim that it causes cancer study was based on flawed data analysis for some time.

Michael Crichton also was avid in the exposing the false data used in the study. Now the moron Surgeon General says that just one whiff of SHS can cause a heart attack based on nothing. Pretty pathetic.

Here’s an excellent article on the links between sham science and the myth of SHS and how it is used as a cudgel against those that argue against the global warming myth from S. Fred Singer:

Secondhand Smoke, Lung Cancer, and the Global Warming Debate

By S. Fred Singer

In 1993, the EPA published a report claiming that secondhand smoke (SHS
– also sometimes known as environmental tobacco smoke or ETS) causes
three thousand deaths from lung cancer every year.  Anyone doubting this
result has been subject to attack and depicted as a toady of the
tobacco lobby.  The attacks have been led by a smear blog called
DeSmogBlog, financed by the Canadian PR firm of James Hoggan, and have
been taken up with great enthusiasm by self-styled “science historian”
Professor Naomi Oreskes.

The tobacco smoking issue has also become a favorite tool for discrediting climate skeptics.  A prime example is the book Merchants of Doubt
by Oreskes and Eric Conway, which attacks several well-known senior
physicists, including the late Dr. Fred Seitz, a former president of the
U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the American Physical Society, and
(most recently) Rockefeller University.

No matter what the environmental issue — ozone depletion, acid rain,
pesticides, etc. — any and all scientific opposition based on objective
facts is blamed on an imagined involvement with tobacco companies.
None of this is true, of course.  Oreskes and Conway claim to be
academic historians, yet they have consistently ignored factual
information, have not bothered to consult primary sources, have never
interviewed any of the scientists they try to smear, and generally have
operated in a completely unprofessional way.

Store owner kills three assholes trying to rob his store.
He was also shot.

Houston Store Owner Kills 3 Would-Be Robbers

HOUSTON — Police say a Houston jewelry store owner has shot and killed three men who tried to rob his business.

Houston police spokesman Kese Smith says two
men were in the store Thursday afternoon pretending to be customers
when a third man burst into the store and stated, “This is a robbery.”

All three men then pulled out pistols, tied up the store owner’s wife and took her to a back room.

They were trying to tie up the owner, when
he took a handgun from his waistband and fatally shot one of the
suspects. Smith said he then grabbed a shotgun and shot and killed the
other two suspects.

The store owner was shot in the stomach and taken to a Houston hospital. Smith says his wife was not hurt.

That is was pointed out on MSNBC, because they did it, is in and of itself a shocker.
At any rate, the bias runs deep in this one.

Here’s Hot Air’s take on it:

Video: Scarborough points out bias of … MSNBC?
by Ed Morrissey

A classic, mainly for Mika Brzezinsky’s reaction. After his co-host read a news report about Judge Henry Hudson’s decision ruling the federal health-insurance mandate unconstitutional that emphasized Hudson’s appointment to the bench by George W. Bush, Joe Scarborough wondered aloud why the source of appointments only seem to matter for those picked by Republican presidents. Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham supplied the correct answer while mostly stifling a laugh, but Brzezinsky fumes over the criticism (via the Daily Caller and The Right Scoop)

Another Gore effect for the global warming morons.
This is too funny.
Cancun having a record cold spell during the summit is just priceless.



‘Gore Effect’ Strikes the Cancun Climate Change Summit

By Doug Powers

This “Gore Effect” update is brought to you by Carhartt.
Carhartt, the cold-weather outfitter of choice for the discerning Gorebot who knows that freezing to death at a global warming summit gives the deniers the upper hand
**********

One thing’s for certain: Ixchtel, the Mayan Moon Goddess to which the global warming summit people are praying, is not only wearing her insulated bra and heated underwear in Cancun this week, but she also has a helluva sense of humor.

Today’s irony overdose courtesy of Ice Age Now:

“With the UN Climate Change Conference underway in Cancun to discuss the dangers of Global Warming, the resort host location is experiencing its third straight day of record cold temperatures,” says reader Richard Nathan.

Today the mercury fell to 53F in Cancun. The record for this date – 57F – was set in 2000.

Yesterday, the temperature in Cancun fell to 53F, a new record, and on Dec 5th it fell to 51F, yet another new record.

I have long said the Keynes was a moron when it came to economics. His “theory” was just that, a theory, and it has been proven to not work at all, time and time again. It is even more apparent now. The only thing the Keynesian economics is good for is to expand the government, which is exactly why the moron Democrat party loves it.

It still doesn’t work idiots.
