Shipwreck and Cynicism

Last July, Pope Francis made his first papal trip outside of Rome to the Italian island of Lampedusa: a narrow slab of rock 70 miles off the Tunisian coast and a major point of entry to the EU for migrants (mostly illegal) fleeing poverty, violence and, upheaval in East Africa, North Africa, and the greater [...]

Why Americans Have a Hard Time Accepting Climate ‘Science’

I’ll admit it: I have no idea how much the earth is warming or why. How can I have no idea when it has been repeated so often in the news? Easy. The “science” we have been given so often by the media is so patently absurd on its face that media science  has no [...]
