Sound Familar?

"The prospect of domination of the nation�’s scholars by federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present - and is gravely to be regarded. Yet in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."

Is this the rant of a crazy global warming skeptic?  Nope, it was in President Eisenhower's Farewell Address in 1960, a warning that 50+ years later still rings true.   It's why so many of us over 50 who have lived history, lived thru climate change understand that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat its mistakes.  Ike warned us of too much government employment, yet that warning is still ignored daily.  The "climate consensus" is controlled by those who,( just like cardiologists control open heart surgery-a "consensus of physicians"), know their government funding will suffer unless they make the rest of us feel somehow inferior.   I don't stop reading and I won't stop thinking until I find the TRUTH.  Stay along for the ride gang!

Tonight is our last cool night before we start to feel Summer-like again.   By Friday the muggies will be back full force and the record coolness the Northshore felt this morning will be just a memory that won't be repeated until October!
