You’ve been warned, real science follows — Global warming on the moon? How can that be? The moon has no atmosphere.
Thanks to Siddons and his co-authors of ‘A Greenhouse Effect on the Moon,’ the world now has scientific evidence to show the greenhouse gas theory (GHG) was junk all along.
As the truth now spreads, an increasing number of scientists refute the greenhouse gas theory, many have been prompted by the shocking revelations since the Climategate scandal. The public have also grown more aware of how a clique of government climatologists were deliberately ‘hiding the decline’ in the reliability of their proxy temperature data all along.
But NASA’s lunar temperature readings prove that behind that smoke was real fire. Some experts now boldly go so far as to say the entire global warming theory contravenes the established laws of physics. How NASA responds to these astonishing revelations may well tell us how politicized the American space agency really is.

Having been personally involved with the Apollo ALSEP program, this would be the instruments on the moon, I can proudly say I have directly contributed to the failure of the AGW hoax. The experimental package that I helped design and test was an ALSEP package named CPLEE, which made measurements of the solar wind. The engineering and testding was conducted at Rice University Space Science Laboratory in the late 60s and early 70s. For safety reasons we were not allowed to design the actual flight hardware, but did do the development, the testing and calibration.

The Coast Guard: Got to have money for them handouts to Democrat voters. So what, drugs are pouring in, illegals packed 20 deep. He finally finds a federal agency whose budget he’s willing to cut, and guess what.
Obama proposed downsizing Coast Guard crisis center three months before spill
Three months before the massive BP oil spill erupted in the Gulf of Mexico, the Obama administration proposed downsizing the Coast Guard national coordination center for oil spill responses, prompting its senior officers to warn that the agency’s readiness for catastrophic events would be weakened…
Accidents happen, “but what you’re seeing here is the government is not properly set up to deal with this kind of issue,” said Robbin Laird, a defense consultant who has worked on Coast Guard issues. “The idea that you would even think about getting rid of catastrophic environmental spill equipment or expertise at the Department of Homeland Security, are you kidding me?”
“Cutting a strike team is nuts,” said Stephen Flynn, a former Coast Guard commander and now president of the Center for National Policy, a Washington think tank. “Whether it’s an accident of man or an act of terrorism, it requires almost the exact same skill set to clean it up.”…
“The elimination of the national command element could well lead to a reduction in core competencies in capabilities needed in a crisis,” said Cmdr. Tina Cutter [in February]. The absence of large spills in recent years has “degraded” the skills of responders, making it more critical to maintain technical experts, particularly in catastrophes, she said.
He is so cool under fire, the jug eared jackass doesn’t have aclue.

Was Waterworld a really good picture? Could be, Costner’s centrifugal separation machine invention is currently being tested by BP(UPDATE: BP says it’s a go, additional techniques still being tested), along with everything else people think will work.
On Sight Action - Oil Spill Barges
The actor has spent 15 years and roughly $26m of his personal fortune developing the patented machine with the help of his elder brother Dan, a scientist. It works like a giant vacuum cleaner, sucking up dirty liquid and then using a high-speed centrifuge to separate it into oil, and heavier water.
There are five machines with different separating abilities, from five gallons a minute to 200 gallons a minute. The company says it can build about 4 of the larger machines a month.
Costner’s involvement in helping solve oil spill crises is not new. The 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill disaster in Alaska motivated the actor to help fund a consortium of scientists to develop technology that mitigates oil-infected water before it hits the coast. The technology is ready to combat the BP spill, he told reporters last week.
It looks like the above videoabove, this is a the small version:
It is basically a centrifuge, water separator, which may just work. Cross your fingers, we may know within days if it does.

Somewhere around 30 USA cities are near bankruptcy right now. Looks like the first out of the chute will be Miami, maybe as soon as next week. I keep waiting for some large city to take initiative and declare bankruptcy to escape onerous burden of public pensions, public union salaries and work rules.
NBC Miami reports Miami Budget Begging for Bankruptcy
The city of Miami is in such financial dire straits that commissioner Marc Sarnoff is using the “B” word, bankruptcy.
“We are not the only city, municipality to be going through this. It looks like Los Angeles sometime next week or the week after will be going bankrupt. It looks like there will be 30 more cities following suit.”
Increases in public worker salaries is one of the main reasons why the budget is so tight. The average salary for a Miami city employee is $76,000. The average salary for a Miami city resident is $29,000.
Employee pensions are choking the budget too. In 2000, pension payouts cost taxpayers $16 million. In 2009 that number spiked up to $70 million.
Should the city go into bankruptcy, the commissioners and their politics would no longer be in charge of city finances, the judge would be.
[Sarnoff] “You no longer have 5 people making political solutions. You now have one person who is looking after the best interest of the taxpayer of the city of Miami, without any politics getting into his or her way.”
The Judge could order union contracts be renegotiated. He or she could decide what creditors get paid or not get paid.

Recession turning to depression? And the best example of that is what FDR did in the 1930’s. Read about how the rest of the world recovered, while America under FDR stumbled badly.
The M3 money supply in the United States is contracting at an accelerating rate that now matches the average decline seen from 1929 to 1933, despite near zero interest rates and the biggest fiscal blitz in history. Since 2003 M3 is no longer published, but private estimates are still available. John Williams monthly reconstruction of M3 is here.
Mr Congdon said the Obama policy risks repeating the strategic errors of Japan, which pushed debt to dangerously high levels with one fiscal boost after another during its Lost Decade, instead of resorting to full-blown “Friedmanite” monetary stimulus.
And now Obama plans on doubling down with the Keynesian crap sandwiches. US money supply plunges at 1930s pace as Obama eyes fresh stimulus:
“It’s frightening,” said Professor Tim Congdon from International Monetary Research. “The plunge in M3 has no precedent since the Great Depression. The dominant reason for this is that regulators across the world are pressing banks to raise capital asset ratios and to shrink their risk assets. This is why the US is not recovering properly,” he said.
M3 is all of the money, everything, where is it, and what is it’s velocity — Right now it’s velocity is damn near zero, the world’s money, it’s just sitting, no one wants to spend it, on anything. Then when people decide to spend their parked money, because it’s value is drying up, then comes hyper-inflation.

What could possibly be wrong with that?
The overall message of climate alarmists is “Trust us,” but the Climategate e-mails exposed these hacks’ lack of credibility, as they are willing to manipulate and suppress data to try to prove their point. Science should not be abused to push a political agenda – and here the National Academy is doing the work of Democrats by taking tax dollars to pimp for higher taxes on gasoline, electricity and other essential elements of modern life. In return, these ideological leftists are rewarded with even more of your money to conduct additional “research.”
It’s time to pull the plug on public funding for these science-fiction writers.

Oabama-Speak, the fusion of sophistry and Newspeak. Some see it as a gift, others recognize it for what it is, just lies. When will the government lies cease.
Everybody knew Obamacare was nothing more than a gigantic lie from the start. The quality of care would sink, rationing would be result, and the lines would just grow and grow — And costs would be through the roof. But now as the hard evidence on just how big a fraud the whole was, it is becoming breathtaking in the scope of the lies.
It’s going to be tough to live with Obamacare, that’s why it takes so long before disaster strikes. That way the jug eared liar has left the scene. Repeal is the only solution.
