Peter Suderman disagrees, and thinks it’s one of the best franchises of all time.

Wow, this movie is certainly getting mixed reviews.
“Why it’s not in my job description as an environmentalist.”
Is it time to take it seriously?
One way to look at space development and settlement is as Gaia reproducing, spreading life into and throughout the solar system, and eventually the galaxy.
Demonstrate the flaws in climate “science”:
…if the lakes’ huge fluctuations in the past weren’t caused by mankind’s burning fossil fuels, why are scientists so convinced that the far more minor changes happening today are?
The reason is simple. Climate scientists can blame anything they want on global warming. The climate models are imprecise enough that no matter what is happening they can point to it as proof that man-made climate change is happening. Too much rain, too little rain, bitterly cold winters, mild winters, more snow, less snow, rising water levels, falling water levels — they can attribute “climate change” as a cause of it all.
A theory for which all evidence is evidence of it, and thus not falsifiable, is not science.
BTW, blogging has been light because I’ve been wiped out by the ISDC for the past five days, and this morning I was at a meeting at ISS Commercialization at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. More meetings tomorrow, then back to LA tomorrow night, where I hope things will get back to normal.

Leonard David has a new space book out, too. I should be getting review copies of both soon.
How to talk to them about capitalism.
Our (mal)educational system is a large part of the problem.
Commemorating the tens of millions killed, and the many more lives blighted, should be the only way to observe May Day. As Glenn says, communists should get just as much societal opprobrium as Nazis.
