9/11 A Tribute.

Today I am starting my research on Maile Rachel Hale. She is a wonderful person that lost her life while attending a seminar at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. I will do my best to pay loving tribute to a woman that was by all accounts the infectious giggle in the room. Stay tuned, I will post the tribute on 9/11/06.

Please visit the 2,996 project to join the tribute.

Is There A Consensus On Global Warming?

Too many people the surprising answer is, NO!

In an article on the British Journalism Review, Peter C. Glover explores the question What Climate Consensus? He points out that a lot of the news about global warming is media alarmism.

This is what I believe is Mr. Glover's most important point. He states, "I have
had the same difficulty convincing some editors and producers of the need to
question the basic assumptions and wild predictions for the climate in 100
years time – surprising, really, when you consider the irony that
climatologists (or meteorologists, as we otherwise know them) can’t predict
what the “climate” will be in two weeks’ time with any degree of accuracy."

Answer For al-Qaeda.

Tom Bruner has written a Counteroffer to al-Qaeda, that is a must read.

While your there check out the rest of American Thinker. It too is always a must read.

Can Iran's Diplomacy Be Trusted?

American Thinker has a link to an article entitled Can Iran Be Trusted? by Michael Rubin.
Dr. Rubin is a senior fellow at The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. In his article Dr. Rubin points out many examples of Iran using diplomatic efforts for the sole purpose of buying time. Time that they need to move their interests further down the field without serious consequences. This very good article like many others leaves the reader to wonder, Just what is the purpose of the U.N.?
