Little Ice Age — Climate Trend Milestone?

The Little Ice Age (LIA) received much attention by those who were affected by it.  Much was written about it, and most of that was forgotten again. Index Introduction The birth of Michel E.

Global warming? While Hell freezes over?

This is a long commentary that relates to our current cold spell and the context of the longer climate trends it is part of.  Of course, I hope that anyone reading it will enjoy doing so.  Some people insist that a long commentary should have an index.  Just in case that is important to any reader (Word Press suggest that it is), it is an afterthought and not part of the original version I posted yesterday, but here it is: Index • Introduction • Note on the Little Ice Age (added 2017 12 30) [Related commentary: Little Ice Age — Climate Trend Milestone?, added 2017 12 31] • Climate comparisons — … Continue reading

Surgical Fires — Calling Doctor Semmelweis

Dr. Semmelweis is no longer with us, surgical fires are. Laser surgery is at times the source of ignition of fires in operating rooms.  Laser surgery and Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts had and still have similar consequences, good and bad ones.  They save lives, quite a few on account of laser surgery, but vastly more, perhaps as many as or more than half a billion in the case of Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts.  Unfortunately, they also caused and cause injury and death, very rarely in the case of laser surgery, perhaps never in the case of Dr. Semmelweis but once.  What he discovered killed him.  It made him a martyr who died … Continue reading

Naming Mountains and Ideologies — the Real and the Ideal

Mountains and ideologies are named by people who think they rule, occupy, own or were victorious over them. Ownership changes, as do the names. Love is an ideal thing, marriage is real. Confusing an ideal with what is real will have unexpected consequences. The confusion of the ideal with the real happens in love and in war, as well as with any other ideal and ideologies. Ideologies have consequences as soon as someone wishes to turn idealistic pipe dreams that are more or less-well thought out into reality.  Even just trying to get a start at  some of the things that some people wish to get into motion will cost … Continue reading

Love, Family, Law & Order, Civilization

The regulation of human sexuality produced the heterosexual family as well as the inter-generational transfer of property, knowledge, social traditions, and it resulted in the creation and refinement of laws and governments. The regulation of human sexuality was the beginning of civilization, the symbiosis of all of those things and those that grew out of and because of them: clans, villages, towns, nations, empires, societies, and more traditions and laws that made them function more smoothly. Civilization refined itself over the course of 10,000 years.  It evolved into something great, gradually caused living conditions and the quality of life for people to become better and better, as well as  ever … Continue reading

Deliberately killing people creates horror

Deliberately killing people makes many wish to make distinctions, such as whether the killing was • Legal or illegal; • Targeting selected or random individuals; • Of an isolated individual or part of a mass killing; • A part of a mass killing that was large or small; • Justified or not; • Deserved or not; • Brought on by collective or individual guilt of the victim(s); • A result of an act of terrorism or of a government decision; • A consequence of a program of terrorism or war; • A consequence of aggression or defence by the victim(s) that died; and, last but not least, • Brought about … 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. The Fraser Institute announced: “Canada no longer among top 10 most economically free countries  (Appeared in the Winnipeg Sun, October 6, 2017)”. Gender disparity features prominently in the FI’s Economic Freedom of the World, 2017 Annual Report. Gender Disparity Index This year the index published in Economic Freedom of the World includes an adjustment for gender disparity to take into account the fact that in many nations women are not legally accorded the same level of economic … Continue reading

Notable weather events often catastrophic, 2010 years

Whenever the all-pervasive climate-alarmism hysteria gets on my nerves, I browse through the appended chronologies (especially the one by James Marusek), to learn about historical weather events, so as to get my bearings. Do a find-in-page in that for a few key items to put things into perspective: such as hailstones, Nile, Constantinople, plague, storm, drought, rain, flood, harvest, snow, frozen over, mother, etc., etc…. Weather events may be bad but their consequences can be mitigated We live in good times and, objectively, don’t have much to complain about – why the urge to return to “the good, old days”?  That the old days were good is largely a figment … Continue reading

Woman’s work is never done – man’s work ignored

A woman’s work is never done. The feminists love that adage. They are also the reason why it was truncated from »A man may work from dusk to dawn, but a woman’s work is never done.«  The feminists are responsible for making the first part of that adage vanish by rigorously following this instruction and imposing it on everyone: A man’s work is… ignored. Why is that first part of the original adage being ignored?  Men are obligated to work.  If they don’t work, they better be sick, invalid or dead, otherwise they would be bums.  The feminist argument goes that, while men who don’t work (for women) are bums, … Continue reading
