Show 443 Author Ian Plimer talks about his book refuting global warming. The Michael Medved Show -

Synopsis of book- In this controversial new book Australia's leading geologist makes the case that carbon dioxide is just one of many factors that drive climate -- and a relatively insignificant one at that. Heaven and Earth engagingly and comprehensively synthesizes what we know-- or think we know -- about the sun, earth, ice, water, and air. Heaven and Earth is a powerful argument against many of the punitive--and expensive -- laws that are now being passed to 'protect' our environment. Remember the great Alar scare of 1989? Remember when we were headed toward a New Ice Age? Remember when the Arctic was melting but the Antarctic was not? And when ethanol was the answer to everything? Ian Plimer's Heaven and Earth blows away the smoke and let's us look directly into the flame.

 Biography

Ian Plimer, twice winner of Australia's highest scientific honor, the Eureka Prize, is professor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Adelaide and is author of six other books written for the general public in addition to more than 120 scientific papers.

 Show 442 Richard Land's special guest is William Dembski, research professor of philosophy at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in

Fort Worth, Texas, and the author of the book, The Design Revolution: Answering the Toughest Questions about Intelligent Design. Jul 20-21, 2009

For 150 years Darwinism has shaped scientific, academic and popular thinking regarding the complexity of life. That thinking has in many ways shaped our culture. This monolith has stood for so many years like a bastion against faith-seemingly impervious to the challenges of men and women of God. For years Darwinists have refused even to engage people of faith in dialog. Dismissing biblical accounts as mere fantasy, their mantra has been, "Show me the science!” That"s what today's guest is in the business of doing. Dr. Dembski is one of the strong voices in what has come to be known as the Intelligent Design movement. He is with us today to talk about his book, The Design Revolution.

 The intelligent design movement holds the promise to influence and shape our culture as Darwinism crumbles. Let"s commit to pray that as the world begins to recognize intelligence in design, God’s fingerprints in His creation, that will many will be led to a personal encounter with the Designer Himself

 Show 440 Michael Medved talks to author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies. By Michelle Malkin 8/11/09

 Synopsis- The era of hope and change is dead . . . .and it only took six months in office to kill it.

Never has an administration taken office with more inflated expectations of turning Washington around. Never have a media-anointed American Idol and his entourage fallen so fast and hard. In her latest investigative tour de force, New York Times bestselling author Michelle Malkin delivers a powerful, damning, and comprehensive indictment of the culture of corruption that surrounds Team Obama's brazen tax evaders, Wall Street cronies, petty crooks, slum lords, and business-as-usual influence peddlers. In Culture of Corruption, Malkin reveals:

* Why nepotism beneficiaries First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are Team Obama's biggest liberal hypocrites-bashing the corporate world and influence-peddling industries from which they and their relatives have benefited mightily
* What secrets the ethics-deficient members of Obama's cabinet-including Hillary Clinton-are trying to hide
* Why the Obama White House has more power-hungry, unaccountable "czars" than any other administration
* How Team Obama's first one hundred days of appointments became a litany of embarrassments as would-be appointee after would-be appointee was exposed as a tax cheat or had to withdraw for other reasons
* How Obama's old ACORN and union cronies have squandered millions of taxpayer dollars and dues money to enrich themselves and expand their power
* How Obama's Wall Street money men and corporate lobbyists are ruining the economy and helping their friends

In Culture of Corruption, Michelle Malkin lays bare the Obama administration's seamy underside that theliberal media would rather keep hidden.

Biography- Michelle Malkin is the author of three bestselling books, including the New York Times bestseller Invasion. She is the founder of two of the Internet's top conservative blogs, MichelleMalkin.com and HotAir.com. Malkin has worked in daily newspaper journalism since 1992, penned a nationally syndicated column for Creators Syndicate since 1999, and served as a FOX News Channel contributor since 2001. While working as an editorial writer/columnist for the Seattle Times, she won the Council on Governmental Ethics Laws (COGEL) national award for outstanding service for the cause of governmental ethics and leadership, and for investigative columns that exposed campaign finance abuses and corruption by Washington State Democrats, Republicans, and political organizations. After nearly a decade, Malkin escaped the Beltway swamp and now lives a much healthier, happier, uncorrupted life with her husband and two children in Colorado.

Show 439 Give Me a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media From the Ritz Carlton Hote...all » Give Me a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media From the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Chicago, the Heartland Institute presents John Stossel, author of "Give Me a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media." In his book Stossel discusses his years as a consumer reporter and argues that through his reporting he has discovered the incompetence of the government's problem-solving methods. Stossel believes the general public is better served through the power of the free market. After the discussion Stossel answers questions from the audience.

Show 438 John Stossel, ABC News correspondent & co-anchor, 20/20, speaks at a Fraser Institute roundtable dinner in Vancouver, Canada, on "Myths, Lies & Downright Stupidity". Price gouging is good for consumers. Public schools don't need more money. Gasoline isn"t overpriced. Sweatshops are good for workers. A minimum wage hurts poor people. There is no cancer epidemic. DDT saves lives. Would you believe those statements are true? They sound crazy, right? But consumer advocate and best-selling author John Stossel can back them up. He explains that much of what we hear—and what the media reports—are myths. So how much stupidity will we continue to swallow? We still buy bottled water instead of drinking from the tap, and try to stay thin by not eating late at night. We pay rapt attention when a TV expert tells us what stocks to buy, and believe that video games cause violence. Is it true that teachers aren't paid fairly? Prepare to be surprised, corrected, and outraged as you learn how conventional wisdom is often wrong. John Stossel has reported for 20/20 since 1981 and was made co-anchor in 2003, replacing Barbara Walters. He has received 19 Emmy awards and been honored five times for excellence in consumer reporting by the National Press Club.

Show 437 China's Lost Girls.  National Geographic host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China"s '’one child policy’’. Audio MP3

China’s Lost Girls Release Year: 2005 Duration: 43 min

 National Geographic host Lisa Ling examines the consequences of China’s two-decade-old, ‘’one child policy’’ designed to curb the country’s exploding population. Due to cultural, social and economic factors, traditional preference leans toward boys, so girls are often hidden, aborted, or abandoned. As a result, tens of thousands of girls end up in orphanages across China. Today, more than one quarter of all babies adopted from abroad by American families come from China—and nearly all are girls. Ling joins some of these families as they travel to China to meet their new daughters for the first time. Along this emotional journey, she shares in the joy of these growing families and also witnesses firsthand China’s gender gap, its roots, and its possible repercussions.

Show 436 Dennis Prager talks to Christopher Caldwell, columnist for the Financial Times, a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, and a senior editor at the Weekly Standard. His new book is Reflections on the Revolution in Europe.

Synopsis-  Can you have the same Europe with different people in it? The answer, says Christopher Caldwell, is no.

 Europe has undergone a demographic revolution it never expected. A half century of mass immigration has failed to produce anything resembling an American-style melting pot. By overestimating its need for immigrant labor and underestimating the culture-shaping potential of religion, Europe has trapped itself in a problem to which it has no obvious solution.

 Christopher Caldwell has been reporting on the politics and culture of Islam in Europe for more than a decade. His deeply researched and insightful new book reveals a paradox. Since World War II, mass immigration has been made possible by Europe's enforcement of secularism, tolerance, and equality. But when immigrants arrive, they are not required to adopt those values. And they are disinclined to, since they already have values of their own. Muslims dominate or nearly dominate important European cities, including Amsterdam and Rotterdam, Strasbourg and Marseille, the Paris suburbs and East London. Islam has challenged the European way of life at every turn, becoming, in effect, an "adversary culture.”

 The result? In Reflections on the Revolution in Europe, Caldwell reveals the anger of natives and newcomers alike. He describes guest worker programs that far outlasted their economic justifications, and asylum policies that have served illegal immigrants better than refugees. He exposes the strange ways in which welfare states interact with Third World customs, the anti-Americanism that brings European natives and Muslim newcomers together, and the arguments over women and sexthat drive them apart. He considers the appeal of sharia, “resistance,” and jihad to a second generation that is more alienated from Europe than the first, and addresses a crisis of faith among native Europeans that leaves them with a weak hand as they confront the claims of newcomers.

 As increasingly assertive immigrant populations shape the continent, Caldwell writes, the foundations of European culture and civilization are being challenged and replaced. Reflections on the Revolution in Europe is destined to become the classic work on how Muslim immigration permanently reshaped the West.

The New York Times - Dwight Garner

 Mr. Caldwell's book is the most rigorous and plainspoken examination of Muslim immigration in Europe to date, a sobering book that walks right up to, if never quite crossing, the line between being alarming and being alarmist…well researched, fervently argued and morally serious. It may serve as a dense, footnoted wake-up call to many of Europe's liberal democracies.

Biography- CHRISTOPHER CALDWELL is a columnist for the Financial Times, a contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, and a senior editor at the Weekly Standard. He lives in Washington, D.C.

Show 435 Heaven and Earth - Professor Ian Plimer's new book . Michael Medved talks to author about Human Induced Climate Change.

 Recommended by Václav Klaus, President of the EU, 2009.

 "This is a very powerful, clear, understandable and extremely useful book. Ian Plimer fully exploits his unique scientific background in geology, his life-long academic experience, and his broad, truly interdisciplinary knowledge to dismantle the currently popular, politically correct but rationally untenable and indefensible position that the Earth is approaching catastrophic climate change and that we have to react – at all costs – to prevent it.

 Professor Plimer argues that the undergoing climate change is not unprecedented in history and that the temperatures in the 20th Century are not outside the range of natural variability. He rejects the unscientific idea that the explanation of climate change can be reduced to one variable (CO2), the proposition that there is a strong relationship between measured temperature and CO2 emissions, and the almost religious belief that we will stop climate change by reducing CO2 emissions. He rightly assumes that humans will be able to adapt to any future coolings or warmings.

 He also convincingly criticizes the UN, the IPCC, UK and US politicians as well as “Hollywood show business celebrities”. He strictly distinguishes science and environmental activism, politics and opportunism. The book I wrote two years ago “Blue Planet in Green Shackles” comes to very similar conclusions but I have to say that if I"d had a chance to read Professor Plimer’s book, my book would have been better.” (Václav Klaus.)

The hypothesis that humans can actually change climate is unsupported by evidence from geology, archaeology, history and astronomy.

 The Earth is an evolving dynamic system. Current changes in climate, sea level and ice are within variability. Atmospheric CO2 is the lowest for 500 million years. Climate has always been driven by the Sun, the Earth’s orbit and plate tectonics and the oceans, atmosphere and life respond. Humans have made their mark on the planet, thrived in warm times and struggled in cool times.

The hypothesis that humans can actually change climate is unsupported by evidence from geology, archaeology, history and astronomy. The hypothesis is rejected.

 A new ignorance fills the yawning spiritual gap in Western society. Climate change politics is religious fundamentalism masquerading as science. Its triumph is computer models unrelated to observations in nature. There has been no critical due diligence of the science of climate change, dogma dominates, sceptics are pilloried and 17th Century thinking promotes prophets of doom, guilt and penance.

 When plate tectonics ceases and the world runs out of new rocks, there will be a tipping point and irreversible climate change.

Don’t wait up.

  ABOUT THE AUTHOR
