Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: Blaming turbulent weather on global warming Is extreme nonsense.

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: Blaming turbulent weather on global warming is extreme nonsense.

Be sure to read the interview all the way through. The second half is especially devastating in its educated attack on the global warming crowd.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

  • “None of this has anything to do with atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.”

    Mr. Bastardi’s climate model fits the observed data, unlike the AGW religion, which can’t explain how a gas making up 0.04% of the atmosphere can affect climate.

    I always wondered why in my graduate civil (sanitary engineering) studies they always emphasized the carbon cycle back in the late 80’s. It is so obvious now, they were planting the seeds of indocrination concerning the evils of CO2. Control the culture and the war is over. Culturekamf….yea.

    I love the logic behind Sen. Whitehouse’s statement, essentially: I emit carbon dioxide, you emit carbon dioxide, but since you’re a climate change denier and I’m not, only yours is causing the extreme weather.” You see, liberals have good intentions, so nothing they do causes any harm.
