Another AGW Heretic

Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Resigns Over Global Warming -
The global warming theory left him out in the cold.

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that "global warming is occurring."

The official position of the American Physical Society (APS) supports the theory that man's actions have inexorably led to the warming of the planet, through increased emissions of carbon dioxide.

Giaever does not agree -- and put it bluntly and succinctly in the subject line of his email, reprinted at Climate Depot, a website devoted to debunking the theory of man-made climate change.

"I resign from APS," Giaever wrote.

Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming theory by a line claiming that "the evidence is incontrovertible."

"In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?" he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics society.

"The claim … is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this 'warming' period," his email message said.>>>>>Read more

"...Not A Damn Thing Wrong With The Post Office"

NRO, September 6, 2011- It’s not news that the United States Postal Service is going bankrupt, but this week, the reality of the situation finally started to sink in. The New York Times reported that the agency cannot afford a $5.5 billion pension-fund payment that’s due this month.

At the core of the problem are the horrific contracts the agency has negotiated with its employees’ unions. As the Times reported:

Decades of contractual promises made to unionized workers, including no-layoff clauses, are increasing the post office’s costs. Labor represents 80 percent of the agency’s expenses, compared with 53 percent at United Parcel Service and 32 percent at FedEx, its two biggest private competitors. Postal workers also receive more generous health benefits than most other federal employees. >>>>>>>>[Read all]

Vulnerable 10 Years Later?

Frontpage - In his important pamphlet, 9-11 Ten Years Later, Marc Thiessen asks the critical questions. Are we still safe? Are the important safeguards that the Bush administration put in place after the attack still there to keep us safe? Has President Obama made us more vulnerable to another attack?

Thiessen, who was working at the Pentagon on 9/11, believes that he has. Yes, Osama bin Laden was killed on Obama’s watch. But instead of getting a medal for their achievement, the officials who uncovered the intelligence that led us to Osama bin Laden were given subpoenas. On his second day in office, Obama shut down the CIA’s high-value interrogation program. His Justice Department then reopened criminal investigations into the conduct of CIA interrogators.

Theissen shows how the capture and “enhanced interrogation” of high value targets such as Kahlid Sheikh Mohammed kept us safe for a decade by patiently developing information and putting it together with other intelligence gathered in the field to kill or capture terror leaders working to repeat 9/11 on an even more spectacular scale. According to senior intelligence officials who talked with Theissen, a former colleague, well over half of the information our government learned about al-Qaeda after 9/11 — how it operates, how it moves money, how it communicates, how it recruits operatives, how it picks targets, how it plans and carries out attacks — came from the interrogation of terrorists in CIA custody. Now, thanks to the President, that capacity has been lost. Consider that for a moment: without this capability, more than half of what we knew about the enemy would have disappeared.

By dismantling those tools, President Obama is risking catastrophic consequences. The president has, by his own admission, forced the CIA to operate with one hand tied behind its back. He has, by his own admission, made the agency’s job of protecting us from terror harder. And he says that this is okay. Marc Theissen shows in this shocking pamphlet that it’s not.-----------Read pamphlet here

9/11 Audio

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Newly posted audio files depict the horror of 9/11 unfolding in the sky, as air traffic controllers struggled to follow the faint tracks of hijacked planes, fighter jets tried in vain to chase them down and a flight attendant made a desperate appeal for help.

The sound files add a layer of emotion to previously published transcripts, as puzzlement and frustration seeps into the voices of controllers, military commanders, and even pilots watching the attacks from the sky. There are shouting and ringing phones in the background – the soundtrack, usually omitted from written transcripts, of a nation suddenly at war. >>>>>> read more
