Why not? #EPA says that THEIR subpoenaed emails were “lost” in a “computer crash”, too…

Government computer crash

At this point, it may be easier to compile a list of the Federal Government employees whose computers DIDN’T “crash”.

This time, it’s the EPA which is allegedly suffering from Compu Spontaneius Breakus. But to place this newest chapter into context, a quick refresher is called for:

(via National Journal) –  “…Issa issued a subpoena in November for documents and communications between the Environmental Protection Agency and the Executive Office of the President over a five-year period as part of an inquiry into whether the White House interfered with how the agency responded to congressional inquiries.

One last post about everyone’s favorite Antarctic Global Warming Research Ship

Funniest (and most creative) spin on this subject that I’ve seen yet, courtesy of Gary Varvel:

Of course, the whole thing was already pretty funny, all on its own:

Century-old photographs taken in Antarctica show *gasp* open water AND bare land!!

This article makes a very nice “companion” piece to the previous post.

Quixotes Last Stand

We’re all aware by now of the delightfully ironic story coming out of (Summertime) Antarctica, about the climate research ship that is stuck solid in thick ice.  Chinese, Russian and Australian icebreakers have turned back for fear of also getting caught in the grip of the ice sheets.  Apparently these climate researchers are there to update data that was obtained 100 years ago by another climate research team.  That word “update” has my radar on high alert.  Does update mean ‘change’ or ‘alter’ the data to fit more in line with their global warming agenda?  What exactly needs updating?

At any rate, back to this photograph (see below), there are several remarkable things that jump out at me when I look at it.   It’s a picture of a science expeditions chief scientist, Alexander Stevens, taken in McMurdo Bay, Antarctica, in 1914.  What can be seen in this photo that…

Scientists Trapped In Record Sea Ice Announce That It Is Disappearing

Hmmmm, …makes sense. Of course, it’s perfectly logical that the inordinate amount of ice which surprised these researchers enough to TRAP them (and necessitate a rescue), would obviously mean that… the Antarctic ice must be DECREASING.

Yep, …..makes PERFECT sense to me.

Christmas Trees are Doomed!!! Climate Alarmism 101 — A Massive Failure

A wonderful post from one of our oldest blogging buddies, Donna Quixote……

Quixotes Last Stand

I stumbled across this article posted on the website Grist — a decidedly pro-climate alarmism site.  All of the problems that I have ever run across connected with the Chicken Little Syndrome exhibited by these people can be found in this one article.  This little story is so poorly written, it would get a massive F in any journalism course.

It’s worth a read just to demonstrate how to evaluate these hysteria-driven articles in one easy lesson.  It’s titled  Climate change will ruin Christmas by threatening Christmas trees by Sarah Laskow.

It starts off with the usual fear-mongering ominous sounding “It will take six to 10 years, but Christmas is ruined.”  Doesn’t this sound remarkably similar to the equally horrifying headlines from a couple of years ago stating that children in the UK will never know what snow is.  We all know how that turned…

Another Obama Power Grab: Hey, let’s spend $$$ we don’t have to “prepare” for Climate Change!

Just another day at the office for the despicable, power-hungry busybodies in the Obama Administration, also known as They Know Better, Inc®:

More on this story over at Bunkerville:

“…At a speech at Georgetown University  in June, Mr. Obama outlined executive  actions he would take to require  government and private industry to prepare for  the effects of climate  change.

(Read more: Washington Times

Though laws dealing with the issue are often criticized by those who do not  ascribe to leftist environmental policies, this order is especially dangerous  because Obama completely circumvented congressional oversight in its  implementation.

The fiat decision, entitled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of  Climate Change,” will have far-reaching effects on the lives of Americans,  despite mounting evidence that human activity has no measurable effect on the  environment.
