Have you ever noticed how Al Gore has a near-annual tradition of making outlandish comments to the press?
The Los Angeles Times has stirred a dust-up over global warming with a newly announced policy barring letters to the editor that deny the existence of man-made climate change.
Just five years ago, Charles Monnett was one of the scientists whose observation that several polar bears had drowned in the Arctic Ocean helped galvanize the global warming movement.
A federal wildlife biologist whose observation that polar bears likely drowned in the Arctic helped galvanize the global warming movement during the past decade was placed on administrative leave while officials investigate scientific misconduct accusations.
Almost unanimously, Washington Democrats call themselves "pro-choice." "I support a woman's right to choose!" they thunder. "Choice," of course, means abortion, and that is where the Democrats' passion for choice starts and stops. Elsewhere, Democrats sabotage a woman's right to choose. Instead, they demand to make that choice for her, as they do for men.
Tea Partyers lit the latest American grass-roots fire at a national convention in Phoenix three weeks ago. It reached luminescence last weekend when a YouTube video of Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, went viral. Now Americans everywhere are demanding that Congress repeal the pending ban on incandescent light bulbs.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced yesterday that waters off Virginia and in the eastern Gulf of Mexico will remain closed to drilling through 2017 despite the commonwealth's strong desire for oil and gas production. The moratorium will cost the Old Dominion jobs and tax revenue while further undermining America's domestic energy industry.
The public's taste for stricter gun-control laws is fading.
Six months after "climategate" called into question the science underpinning claims of global warming, the National Academy of Sciences said Wednesday the science is sound, human-caused warming is already occurring, and the U.S. must take urgent action.
As Myron Ebell, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's director of global warming and international environmental policy, told Mr. Bastasch, "Gore's eco-imperialism is uncomfortably close to the original racist goals of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who advocated population control in order to control the number of black and brown people in the world."
"Obviously, humans do have an impact on climate," said Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a leading global-warming skeptic. "The question is whether burning fossil fuels like coal and natural gas is leading to the rapid warming of the planet, and notwithstanding the Los Angeles Times' position on the issue, the evidence is that it isn't."
