Freezing for green…

leave a comment »

The snotty elites who run New England assured their gullible citizens that going green would ensure sufficient energy for their needs,  no matter what.   It was a lie then and the lie is  being exposed  now,  in spades.  Thank God the entire country has  not gone  green.

Bitter cold covers much of the USA,  and even in the normally mild South,  daily high temperatures are lower than the customary lows for wintertime.   Big Girl is the only truly happy creature I have seen this week,  since part of her heritage is from the mountains of Europe,  and she has an incredibly thick coat of fine, very dense and crinkly hair — four layers of it.   She is a perfect nightmare when she sheds,  but she is so well insulated that her top coat is quite cold when she comes in,   meaning that her body is toasty warm.   Everybody who proclaims their belief in global warming is busily trying to  explain why  they are freezing their asses off.

Al Gore seems to think we have forgotten that his big buddy Michael Mann was the creator of the infamous  hockey stick  graph which was mathematically disproven and thoroughly debunked in 2003.

Despite all the climate hysteria,  there is  no evidence  that extreme weather “is becoming more frequent and dangerous”  in the U.S.   All the charts and claims being thrown around mean little and prove nothing, even when NASA’s highly flexible and therefore highly suspect “rubber ruler” of temperature data is stirred into the corrupt stew of the environmentalists.

Geminid meteors appearance…

If you haven’t been looking for them or at them,  you have probably waited too long, but plenty of people will have gotten photos of the  celestial event  for this year.   If I find some more shots,  I’ll add them as an update.

Dino tail…

leave a comment »

dinosaur tail  preserved in amber has been found in Myanmar.  It isn’t a very large specimen, but it clearly shows the wee beastie had feathers, not scales,  so this first of a kind discovery is making huge waves in the scientific world.

Flat-earthers, rejoice!

This man planned to blast off in his homemade rocket  to prove  the earth is a disc,  not a ball.   I hope he had a safe flight,  and will look for further intel on this venture.

Not just another…

…pretty face was Hedy Lamar,  an actress known more for her beauty than her range of acting skills.   What you should know her for is her grasp of science and technology.   If you use any sort of wireless communications,  you owe this  beautiful face  a big debt.

Low fat pigs…

As much as I distrust China, it would be lovely if they are really onto something here.   I like my bacon crisp, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if it hit the skillet with a quarter less fat than usual?

Blue tarantulas…

leave a comment »

India has some strange critters,  but these  bright blue spiders  might take the cake.   The species is currently found in only a 38 square-mile area of the country and is considered critically endangered due to loss of habitat. I would have guessed their conspicuous coloration was at least partly responsibly for their rarity,  but scientists say they don’t know yet.
