Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST, also called UNCLOS) was about redistribution of ocean resources and an international organization to supervise the open seas and sea bed, (think Joe the plumber comments on a world-wide scale) and a UN fostered arm of world government.

Norm Rogers, a very smart and insightful man, focused on the climate debate and other pubic policy problems. Here he revives the legacy of Pareto and his ideas on dynamics in society.

Intellectual freedom is about the public’s right to examine all points-of-view. These scientists are trying to block your access to alternative perspectives.
A few days ago, 54 allegedly “leading climate scientists and museum experts” attached their names to An Open Letter to Museums from Members of the Scientific Community. This is a highly polarizing document that splits the world into good guys and bad guys.

Is the world’s target of limiting global warming to 2 °C too high, or too low? Does it even make scientific sense? The consensus around the target, which was agreed at climate talks in Copenhagen in 2009, seems to be coming unstuck.
Back in October, US climate analysts David Victor and Charles Kennel called it scientifically meaningless and politically unachievable. We should get used to the idea of something warmer, they said.
Now the target has been denounced as “utterly inadequate”, by Petra Tschakert of Penn State University in University Park, who has been involved in a UN review of the target. She wants a 1.5 °C target instead. Writing in the…

An excellent piece from Charles Battig
This inane article in the Hill describing the inane deliberations at the SCOTUS, gives our JunkScience.com readers some understanding of the way the EPA takes advantage of the scientific illiteracy and innumeracy of the judiciary. The key to any regulation getting through, now is small particles pollution claims of premature deaths.
