Among the issues most commonly discussed are individuality, the rights of the individual, the limits of legitimate government, morality, history, economics, government policy, science, business, education, health care, energy, and man-made global warming evaluations. My posts are aimed at thinking, intelligent individuals, whose comments are very welcome.

Newest Senate Environment Report Available

The newest Minority Report of the Senate Committee for the Environment and Public Works is now available. Some of my evaluations of the catastrophic man-made global warming claims are given on page 77. The comments of many of the 700 scientists who dispute the idea that science says that man is causing a global climate change catastrophe make for very interesting reading. We should take note that the much hyped Summary of the last IPCC report was written by only 52 scientists and many present and past contributors to the UN IPCC reports have claimed that the Summaries do not at all accurately represent the views of the remainder of the reports.

U. S. Senate Minority Report:
More Than 700 International Scientists Dissent Over
Man-Made Global Warming Claims
Scientists Continue to Debunk “Consensus” in 2008 &
2009

While I just joined the Senate Minority Report now, I have been speaking out against the idea of catastrophic man-made global warming since a post on 25 January 2008 on this blog. A couple of years prior to that at least, I was speaking out against AGW and extreme environmentalism on Objectivist forums. The exaggerated nature of the environmentalists causes has long been clearly motivated by an anti-mankind bias. I say this while believing that the environment of man is very important. Indeed, it is so important that it deserves to be observed carefully, analytically studied for the development of understanding, and treated with respect because it supports life, ours most especially, but also that of other animals and plants.

I posted that article at GWS blog yesterday.

Just an hour ago I see that an obvious AGW believer posted a nasty comment.

It was a platefull of ad hominems and insults.No actual counterpoint against the article itself.

Just attack Marc Morano and various groups.Which has nothing to do with the report itself.

I commented twice telling him that he offered nothing of substance.

I agree with you that the nature of his comments was that of a man without substantial reasons for his viewpoint. In addition, it is highly unjustified to call all admirers of Ayn Rand's philosophy cultists. I agree that some such people are cultists, but any true Objectivist recognizes the need to think objectively and rationally for himself. Such a person cannot be a cultist. On the other hand, a catastrophic man-made global warming person very commonly is a cultist, though I suspect some are not and are only mistaken on this issue.
