Local News: "For example, Hurricane Hugo's strength was underestimated based on images taken from an angle, and similar errors probably occurred frequently in the 1970s and 1980s, when there was less satellite coverage, the authors write.

While there may be trends in storm intensity linked to sea temperatures, which have increased, the 'trends are very likely to be much smaller (or even negligible) than those found in the recent studies,' the paper says."

Bad science is bad science, especially when it is used to support a political agenda like Algore's.

Sun kills 60,000 a year, WHO says. "As many as 60,000 people a year die from too much sun, mostly from malignant skin cancer, the World Health Organization reported on Wednesday."
I call on all our legislators, judges, and whoever, to put all the resources of the government into research to provide the world with a cleaner source of light and heat. The same energy that has been put into the war against big tobacco should be put into the war against Big Sun.

I am contemplating a lawsuit against all those advertizers who promote outside sports, including big baseball, big football, big skiing, big hiking, big sunbathing, big swimming, and Mr. Big whereever he is because of the lifelong exposure I have had to the sun. Nobody gave me sufficient warning of the terrible hazzard I was exposed to from my earliest youth. The question is this: who knew, when did they know, and how much did they know?

Excite News - U.S., Others Fail to Agree on Cease-Fire: "U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the solution to the Mideast crisis should involve Iran and Syria. He also called for the formation of a multinational force to help Lebanon assert its authority and implement U.N. resolutions that would disarm Hezbollah."
Is this guy an anti-semite, or what? Where has he been the last umpteen years, when Hezbollah was digging fortifications and tunnels and stockpiling rockets in Lebanon. He only finds out that something must be done when Israel finds out they must secure themselves? Kofi is the lead boil on the infection called the United Nations.

Tuesday, July 25, 2006 - 29 Deaths Probed as California Heat Wave Continues; Rolling Blackouts Feared - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News: "SACRAMENTO, Calif. - As the death toll from a scorching heat wave rose and record demand tested the state's power supply, energy managers feared they may have to trigger rolling blackouts. "

Of course it is George Bush's fault. The dumbest man who was ever president continues to fool everyone and is now getting revenge on California for giving their electoral votes to John Kerry.
Peace prize winner 'could kill' Bush | World Wide Weird | The Australian: "'I have a very hard time with this word 'non-violence', because I don't believe that I am non-violent,' said Ms Williams, 64.
'Right now, I would love to kill George Bush.' Her young audience at the Brisbane City Hall clapped and cheered. "

Is this the western liberal equivilent of the Taliban and Hamas and Hezbollah? They are teaching children in Islamic lands the same message: Kill George Bush. Why do we have to put up with these people?

Excite News: "Civilians have taken the brunt of the war that has cost 369 lives in Lebanon and killed 37 Israelis."
How can this be? Civilians dying in war? Civilians are innocent in war. They do not give aid and help to the soldiers, do they? Do they elect the officials and pay the taxes that support the war machines? Certainly the civilians of Lebanon have nothing to do with the Hezbollah, do they? Are there rockets hidden in their homes? Surely it would not be expected that if weapons are hidden in homes and mosques they are off limits to attack, would it?

Of course, the death of civilians makes good propaganda. What is evil, though, is the American and world press serving as propaganda agents.

In World War I, military supplies were loaded into the lower decks of the Lusitania for use of the Allies against Germany. German intelligence discovered the cargo of the passenger ship, and sent uboats to sink it. Of course, it was wonderful propaganda against Germany, and America came into the war because of it. It took many years before the cargo of the ship became public. Some things never change, but war is war, and it is waged on many levels. Those who publish the propaganda of the enemy are as much traitors as any citizen who would take up arms against their own nation, and they should be punished under the Constitution of the United States which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort to the enemy."
