Editor’s Note: Al Gore and other climate hustlers have taken to comparing those who dispute their facts and challenge their views to vile holocaust deniers, calling them climate deniers. Others have called for criminal punishment of the so-called “deniers.” With more than 15 years of no discernible warming, Mr. Gore and his nutty allies owe an apology to those they have maligned as “deniers.” Moreover in 2013, in the U.S. there have been a record number of low temperatures. Even the climate hustlers now admit that for another decade or so, no warming is likely. That will be about 25 years of no warming despite continued CO2 emissions. While an abject apology from these shills is warranted, it is unlikely. They seems to know no shame. Regardless, it is time for Americans to treat them as the dishonest climate hustlers they are.
The globe cools, and Al Gore’s ‘Climate Reality’ does, too
Al Gore’s multimillion-dollar scheme to persuade the world that global warming is about to boil, fry or sauté us all is disappearing faster than an ice cube on the sidewalk on a summer day.

That’s the scheme melting now. Continue reading

Massachusetts lowered its state income tax in 2001. Given the presumably large number of rich people who pine to pay more taxes, the state allowed tax filers to check a box and voluntarily pay the old, higher rate. In a liberal state of over 3 million tax filers, how many volunteered to pay the higher rate in 2004? A tiny fraction of 1 percent — 930 taxpayers. Continue reading
