British Government Is Anti-Science

Government’s climate watchdog launches astonishing attack on the Mail on Sunday… for revealing global warming science is wrong | Mail Online.

The official watchdog that advises the Government on greenhouse gas emissions targets has launched an astonishing attack on The Mail on Sunday – for accurately reporting that alarming predictions of global warming are wrong.

We disclosed that although highly influential computer models are still estimating huge rises in world temperatures, there has been no statistically significant increase for more than 16 years.

Despite our revelation earlier this month, backed up by a scientifically researched graph, the Committee on Climate Change still clings to flawed predictions.

Africa For Norway, Or Britain

It’s the cold, not global warming, that we should be worried about – Telegraph.

Somewhere between the release of the 1984 Band Aid single and Al Gore’s 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, political attention shifted away from such problems. The idea of people (especially old people) dying in their homes from conditions with which we are all familiar now seems relatively boring. Much political attention is still focused on global warming, and while schemes to help Britain prepare for the cold are being cut, the overseas aid budget is being vastly expanded. Saving elderly British lives has somehow become the least fashionable cause in politics.

The opponents of the Saskatchewan Government’s move into standardized testing have been using this story as an example of the problems caused by said testing. Actually it is an indictment of the corruption of left wing school officials and teachers…

35 Atlanta teachers, principals and administrators were indicted on Friday by a grand jury – NYTimes.com.

During the decade she (Dr. Beverly L. Hall) led the district of 52,000 children, many of them poor and African-American, Atlanta students often outperformed wealthier suburban districts on state tests.

Those test scores brought her fame — in 2009, the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year and Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, hosted her at the White House.

And fortune — she earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.

Higher Scores, Less Aid

The falsified test scores were so high that Parks Middle was no longer classified as a school in need of improvement and, as a result, lost $750,000 in state and federal aid, according to investigators. That money could have been used to give struggling children extra academic support. Stacey Johnson, a Parks teacher, told investigators that she had students in her class who had scored proficient on state tests in previous years but were actually reading on the first-grade level. Cheating masked the deficiencies and skewed the diagnosis.

In the abortion debate I was always under the impression that if a baby was able to pass through the birth canal unscathed he was free to go. Apparently the abortionists at Planned Parenthood are having none of that. It seems that if the choice was for the baby to die then die they will. One way or another cuz those ambulances are so inconvenient…
