About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Global Wind Day Is Its Own Global Warning

Regular readers know that our SC businessman has made many contributions to RTE over the years.  His specialty has been global warming subjects & in fact his presentation from April, 2007 entitled Earth Day Message From 1975 - It Is Going To Be A Cold World is listed as one of the Classics on the let hand side of the blog.
With this as a backdrop environmental-extreme statists have proclaimed June 15, 2012 "Global Wind Day" – a day highlighting how windmills will cure the ills of the world without mentioning any of the impracticalities, high costs of wind energy, & how it threatens our economy and very way of life.
Steve Lonegan of AFP lets us know that this event is nothing less than an opportunity for far left radicals to brainwash kids across the globe using them as props.  Indoctrination of children in Spain, France, & Greece includes kite flying, coloring books, puppet shows, painting contests, & baptizing windmills.  Mr. Lonegan points out it is no coincidence that Global Wind Day is also the same day as the kick-off of the 20th Anniversary of Agenda 21 "RIO+20" Climate Change and Sustainable communities initiative.

Here are some of the companies financing this day of global environmental indoctrination: General Electric, Siemen's, Lockheed Martin, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, & Ernst & Young - all of whom would stand to benefit from green subsidies and wind energy cronyism paid for with our tax dollars.

In (dis)honor of Global Wind Day – I present below the latest finding of our SC businessman re his research on the validity of Global Warming.  For a minute it looked like he became a convert until he once again brings us back to reality with his apologetic comment that follows his Global Warning below.
GLOBAL WARNING – from SC Businessman
The Washington Post/Associated Press
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.
I apologize.

I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922,
as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 89 years ago.

  1. That was a good one Doug... The Global Warming science hasn't seemed to get any better than that of 1922. Its not like the environmentalist whacko's as I think Rush calls them didn't live back in that Ice Age as well...
