Climate Projections — The devil is in the details

Some will say – for whatever reason – that the comparison of forecasts or climate projections vs. reality made here is not fair.  For unknown reasons, Facebook did not let me post this commentary.  When I tried, the commentary vanished into the unknown.  Perhaps that is because I used a title for it that had “devil” in it.  Maybe FB’s censorship algorithms deem it improper to use “Climate Projections” or “devil” in a FB posting.  Who knows?  It does not matter, but here is what I had tried to present. Given the discrepancies between what was forecast, temperature-wise, for 2 pm today (2018 01 14) and what the reading on our … Continue reading

Feminism affects Fraser Institute report

Feminism officially arrived at the Fraser Institute (FI). That appears to have been a factor that caused the down-grading of Canada’s rank in the FI’s Economic Freedom of the World, 2017 Annual Report.

Was “I Remember Babylon” on target?

Arthur C. Clarke wrote a visionary short story, “I Remember Babylon” (published in Playboy in March 1960), that was an excellent prophesy of how and why the re-engineering of humanity’s moral and cultural standards was to be undertaken.  His prophesy has come to pass…and then some! Google has been around for 19 years now, Facebook for only eleven and Wikipedia for 15. I have been around a lot longer; so have many other people, and, believe me — in case you are not aware of it — the world ran fairly well before Google, Wikipedia and Facebook had been launched.  People where then so well-informed, it seems to me, that information … Continue reading
