Telegraph or The Internet by Craig Covello

November 24, 2009

A story was published November 21, 2009 on Fox news regarding memoranda hacked from a British climate research center.  At least one of these stolen emails suggested plans to hide data which could contradict current political policy for controlling carbon emissions.  It unfortunately showed a decline in temperatures which is at odds with the new global warming […]

November 23, 2009

The Last Straw by Ira Schwartz

November 17, 2009

If it’s not some small North Korean with a Napoleon complex tossing around empty threats, it’s an ignorant Iranian President trying to pull a not very good sleight of hand with the world.
