Show 203 The Deniers: The World Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud**And those who are too fearful to do so. Michael Medved talks to Author.  

Al Gore and his media allies label any scientists who dispute the alleged "consensus�? on global warming as marginal crackpots, sell-outs to Big Oil, or even "deniers,�? deliberately comparing them to neo-Nazi crackpots who deny the Holocaust.

All lies, says environmentalist Solomon who profiles dozens of world-renowned climate scientists-leaders in their fields—whose work contradicts Gore's claims. Many have faced vicious campaigns of intimidation by those who, like Gore, would pervert science and silence dissent to advance a political agenda. But the testimony of their work remains too powerful to deny.

From the Publisher
Al Gore says any scientist who disagrees with him on Global Warming is a kook, or a crook.

Guess he never met these guys

Dr. Edward Wegman—former chairman of the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics of the National Academy of Sciences—demolishes the famous "hockey stick�? graph that launched the global warming panic.

Dr. David Bromwich—president of the International Commission on Polar Meteorology—says "it"s hard to see a global warming signal from the mainland of Antarctica right now.�?

Prof. Paul Reiter—Chief of Insects and Infectious Diseases at the famed Pasteur Institute—says "no major scientist with any long record in this field�? accepts Al Gore's claim that global warming spreads mosquito-borne diseases.

Prof. Hendrik Tennekes—director of research, Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute—states “there exists no sound theoretical framework for climate predictability studies�? used for global warming forecasts.

Dr. Christopher Landsea—past chairman of the American Meteorological Society"s Committee on Tropical Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones—says “there are no known scientific studies that show a conclusive physical link between global warming and observed hurricane frequency and intensity.�?

Dr. Antonino Zichichi—one of the world's foremost physicists, former president of the European Physical Society, who discovered nuclear antimatter—calls global warming models “incoherent and invalid.�?

Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski—world-renowned expert on the ancient ice cores used in climate research—says the U.N. “based its global-warming hypothesis on arbitrary assumptions and these assumptions, it is now clear, are false.�?

Prof. Tom V. Segalstad—head of the Geological Museum, University of Oslo—says “most leading geologists�? know the U.N."s views “of Earth processes are implausible.�?

Dr. Syun-Ichi Akasofu—founding director of the International Arctic Research Center, twice named one of the “1,000 Most Cited Scientists,�? says much “Arctic warming during the last half of the last century is due to natural change.�?

Dr. Claude Allegre—member, U.S. National Academy of Sciences and French Academy of Science, he was among the first to sound the alarm on the dangers of global warming. His view now: “The cause of this climate change is unknown.�?

Dr. Richard Lindzen—Professor of Meteorology at M.I.T., member, the National Research Council Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate, says global warming alarmists “are trumpeting catastrophes that couldn't happen even if the models were right.�?

Dr. Habibullo Abdussamatov—head of the space research laboratory of the Russian Academy of Science"s Pulkovo Observatory and of the International Space Station's Astrometria project says “the common view that man"s industrial activity is a deciding factor in global warming has emerged from a misinterpretation of cause and effect relations.�?

Dr. Richard Tol—Principal researcher at the Institute for Environmental Studies at Vrije Universiteit, and Adjunct Professor at the Center for Integrated Study of the Human Dimensions of Global Change, at Carnegie Mellon University, calls the most influential global warming report of all time “preposterous . . . alarmist and incompetent.�?

Dr. Sami Solanki—director and scientific member at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany, who argues that changes in the Sun’s state, not human activity, may be the principal cause of global warming: “The sun has been at its strongest over the past 60 years and may now be affecting global temperatures.�?

Prof. Freeman Dyson—one of the world’s most eminent physicists says the models used to justify global warming alarmism are “full of fudge factors�? and “do not begin to describe the real world.�?

Dr. Eigils Friis-Christensen—director of the Danish National Space Centre, vice-president of the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy, who argues that changes in the Sun’s behavior could account for most of the warming attributed by the UN to man-made CO2.

Show 202 Gusher of Lies- The Dangerous Delusions of Energy Independence. Michael Medved talks to the author Robert Bryce about energy independence.

Synopsis- A surprising, irreverent, and scrupulously reported deconstruction of todays fashions in energy policy. Everybody is talking about energy independence. But is it really achievable? Is it actually even desirable? In this controversial, meticulously researched book, Robert Bryce exposes the false promises behind the rhetoric while blasting nearly everybody-Republicans, Democrats, environmentalists, and war-mongering neoconservatives-for misleading voters about our energy needs.

Gusher of Lies explains why the idea of energy independence appeals to voters while also showing that renewable sources like wind and solar cannot meet

Americas growing energy demand. Along the way, Bryce eviscerates the ethanol scam. Whether the issue is cost, water consumption, or food prices, corn ethanol is one of the longest-running robberies ever perpetrated on American taxpayers.

Consumers concerned about peak oil and the future of global energy supplies need to understand that energy security depends on embracing free markets and the realities of interdependence. Gusher of Lies is illuminating, vital reading.

Biography

Robert Bryce is one of America's foremost energy journalists. He is currently the managing editor of Energy Tribune and a contributing writer for the Texas Observer. The author of Pipe Dreams: Greed, Ego, and the Death of Enron and Cronies: Oil, the Bushes, and the Rise of Texas, America's Superstate, he lives in

Austin with his wife, Lorin, their three children, and a hyperactive bird dog named Biscuit.

Video description- In 1859, Charles Darwin published, On the Origin of Species . In it, he argued that all of life on earth was the product of undirected natural processes. Time, chance, and natural selection. Since

Darwin, biologists have relied on such processes to account for the origin of living things. Yet today, this approach is being challenged as never before. "Unlocking the Mystery of Life? is the story of top-notch, contemporary scientists who are advancing a powerful idea—“the theory of intelligent design.? Using state-of-the-art computer animation, “Unlocking the Mystery of Life? transports you into the interior of the living cell to explore systems and machines that bear the unmistakable hallmarks of design. Discover the intricacy of a microscopic bacterial rotary motor, which spins at 100,000 rpm. Within the nucleus explore the wonder of DNA, a thread-like molecule that stores instructions to build the essential components of every living organism. It is part of a biological information processing system more complex and more powerful than any computer network. This compelling documentary examines an idea with the power to revolutionize our understanding of life... and to unlock the mystery of its origin.

Review
The science is solid and the computer animations are superb. Unlocking is a great film.—Philip S. Skell, Ph.D., Member, National Academy of Sciences, Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus, Pennsylvania State University.

In Future Jihad, terrorism and Middle East expert Walid Phares gave a definitive account of the historical and cultural forces that led to September 11 and the rise of radical Islam.  In The War of Ideas, he revealed the conflict of ideologies that underlie the War on Terror.  Now, in The Confrontation, he identifies the clashes to come and provides a blueprint for defeating the forces of jihad.  Moving from the ravaged villages of the Sudan to London’s Muslim neighborhoods to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, he illuminates the vast and complex world of the global jihadist movement.  He offers a multi-pronged strategy, global in scope, and calls on the world’s diverse local and international institutions to come together and coordinate their efforts.  Pointing the way forward, this book shows how we might reclaim a world that is safe for freedom and democratic societies.

Show 194 Who really cares. Michael Medved talks to Aurthur C. Brooks, author of Who Really Cares. The suprising truth about compassionate conservativism. 37minutes 8.5MBWe all know we should give to charity, but who really does? Approximately three-quarters of Americans give their time and money to various charities, churches, and causes; the other quarter of the population does not.

Why has America split into two nations: givers and non-givers? Arthur Brooks, a top scholar of economics and public policy, has spent years researching this trend, and even he was surprised by what he found.

In Who Really Cares, he demonstrates conclusively that conservatives really are compassionate-far more compassionate than their liberal foes. Strong families, church attendance, earned income (as opposed to state-subsidized income), and the belief that individuals, not government, offer the best solution to social ills-all of these factors determine how likely one is to give. Charity matters—not just to the givers and to the recipients, but to the nation as a whole.

It is crucial to our prosperity, happiness, health, and our ability to govern ourselves as a free people. In Who Cares, Brooks outlines strategies for expanding the ranks of givers, for the good of all Americans.
