For the next few days posting will be very light, as today I developed a detached retina in the right eye and will undergo treatment tomorrow to fix it. The doctor is optimistic, but I will be unable to sit and stare at the computer much after tomorrow’s procedure until probably Wednesday.

If all goes well I should resume posting on Wednesday, with a two hour appearance that night on Coast to Coast to discuss climate, environmentalism, and the corruption of science because of politics.

    Ouch, I’m sorry to hear that Robert- I hope you come through the procedure ok and recover well.

    We need more ‘Climate Deniers’ like you around. (Being called a ‘Denier’ by the global warmist cult and/or fraudsters is a badge of honor in my book.)

    Here’s hoping you stay as healthy as your skepticism!

    Detached retinas are bad news. The good news is that prompt diagnosis and treatment point to an excellent outcome. Our thoughts will be with you tomorrow, and we look forward to hearing some global warming truths on Wednesday night. Best wishes!
