When Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth, the world went into a global warming hysteria. Twelve years later, much of the world has spotted the ruse, but some still proclaim that fossil fuels will doom mankind. Dr. Jay Lehr of the Heartland Institute highlights a specific moment in Gore’s film and dismantles the shockingly false claims.
Education trumps gender on views on abortion
Kenneth Clark (1903-1983) was an distinguished British art historian and museum conservator. His most well-known work is the landmark thirteen episode BBC documentary series Civilisation: A Personal View that was broadcast on the network during 1969. While Clark focuses on his specialty, the visual arts, he also highlights the profound relation between art and religion during most of the historical period covered in the documentary and its companion book.
In light of PBS’s awful, relativistic program Civilizations, Clark’s mini-series is a refreshing alternative made by a man who was passionate about Western art and culture. Fortunately, he was educated prior to the cultural Marxism and self-loathing that has infected the West.

Environmentalism is the new communism and the best way to defeat it is to understand its core, Marxism, (which is based on envy and hatred) including its appeal.
There is a new white-paper out from The GWPF that illustrates the damage being done to people in poorer countries by environmentalists’ obsession with decarbonization in their imaginary quest to stave off global warming. As Dr. John Christy once said:
The report, by eminent epidemiologist Mikko Paunio, says that international bodies and NGOs are trying to prevent poor countries from expanding their use of conventional fuels, have abandoned the so-called “energy ladder” — the gradual shift to cleaner types of fuel that underpinned the clean up of air quality in industrialised nations.
As Dr Paunio explains, this will have devastating consequences:
“Indoor air pollution from domestic fires kills millions every year. But instead of helping poor people to climb the energy ladder and clean the air in their communities, the poorest people are being given gimmicks like cookstoves, which make little difference to air quality…
