Editor's Notes:

Another voice in the mix.   The interesting thing is that the true believers will immediately seek dirt on this guy.  I would hope that they would listen to his comments.    Another response is to not give him undue respect because he is a Nobel winner.  After all Obama is also a Nobel laureate.   It should be about the ideas and not about the religion. 


I think regardless of the outcome of the continued debate and science, you have to admire the progressives.  Their marketing plan is brilliant and well-orchestrated.    This of course does not happen with just by chance but by intent.   There are some powerful folks here selling a religious experience and what purpose?  The apparent purpose is the takeover of our energy su-ply and use by the government for the express purpose of controlling the economy.   With Bernie Sanders getting quite a lot of media attention it has far reaching implications, since he is a devout socialist.


Nobel Laureate Says Obama's 'Dead Wrong' on Global Warming

A Nobel Prize-winning scientist who supported President Barack Obama has said that he does not believe global warming is a problem, and has openly criticized the president for his position on the issue.


"I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem," Dr. Ivar Giaever announced during a speech at the 65th Nobel Laureate Conference in Lindau, Germany, last week, according to Climate Depot.


Quoting Obama's warning that "no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change," Giaever said it was a "ridiculous statement."


"I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you're wrong. Dead wrong," he said, according to Climate Depot.


"Obama said last year that 2014 is [the] hottest year ever. But it's not true. It's not the hottest."


Giaever, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1973, questioned the theory behind fears about rising carbon dioxide levels and said that the theory is not backed by evidence.


"Global warming really has become a new religion. Because you cannot discuss it. It's not proper. It is like the Catholic Church."


Giaever was one of more than 100 co-signers in a letter to the president in March 2009 that was critical of his stance on global warming, saying, "We the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated."

We should revisit occasionally what the proper role of government is.   As the constitution was a good sense of direction, we need a core set of principles to add in order to deal with the future.


So many want to engineer society, remove risk, assist certain groups, rather than let individuals thrive and raise communities.  Why?


Is Democracy where we all "get it good and hard" or is it the best means to a free society?


Should we roll with the special interests, or make the government achieve its proper role, what is that role, and how to do this?


When do deficits and governments become too large?


Government is becoming more elitist while trying to sell corrections to problems it created, what makes this possible?

Currently as a society, we are having a most difficult time discussing political issues.  What is driving this?   And why a rebirth in political culture would be a good thing.


Market Economy

Are "markets" dead as some would conjecture? Or is free enterprise what got us here?


Economic Theories

At the heart of economics there are several possible economic schools of thought, the essence of these schools of thought and how they relate to our lives.
