Why I’m A Denier (Hint: Because It’s Crap)

Why I’m A Denier (Hint: Because It’s Crap)

Given that it’s Earth Day, I thought I’d re-release an article I wrote about four years ago explaining why I’m a global warming skeptic. Originally published June 10, 2011 in Front Page Magazine.   Why I’m A Global Warming Skeptic By Evan Sayet Let’s begin by acknowledging that the science of global warming is beyond the vast majority of us.  Nonetheless, this does not mean we turn off our brains and simply accept the pronouncements of those sounding the alarm and offering their remedies.  I am a global warming skeptic (to say the least) specifically because I have thought through the issue and the claims of the alarmists just don’t add up.  What follows is my thinking and what it is that has led me to conclude that global-warming is a leftist farce which is being perpetuated for both financial and political reasons. First, I am skeptical because skepticism is the scientific starting point.  Not cynicism but skepticism.  This is especially true when the remedy being proposed is so drastic — in this case requiring the near-total dismantling of society as we know it. I am not overly impressed by talk of a “consensus” as there are enough good and serious scientists who reject the claims of the alarmists to make the pronouncement of “consensus” simply untrue. Besides, every wrong theory that had previously been embraced by society – such as the “fact” that the world is flat – was embraced by a “consensus” of scientists at the time and obviously that consensus was very wrong. My skepticism is only increased with the knowledge that the science of climatology...
Grateful for America (not so much for France)

Grateful for America (not so much for France)

When you think about it, just about every single thing we use to make our lives better — and to be more productive — was either first invented or later perfected in America.  What do we use on a daily basis that came any time recently from Africa?  Islamic countries or even France?  This short video provides the answer.  (From an event I headlined along with Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal and Carly Fiorina.)      ...
What Forrest Gump says about Liberals

What Forrest Gump says about Liberals

It never ceases to amaze me not only how stupid the Modern Liberal is but that he knows that he’s stupid. In this clip from an event I headlined along with Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina and Bobby Jindal I show how the Liberal-made movie classic Forrest Gump shows their self-awareness. (I’m going on tour, folks.  Double back to my website after this short video for cities and...
Talking about BeTheMedia at CPAC

Talking about BeTheMedia at CPAC

I sat down with Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey at CPAC to talk about my new venture, Be the Media dot US and a whole lot more.  Be the Media is a company that sells tee-shirts, pins, mugs and other “billboards” that allow you to take the issues to the streets one person at a time.   Everyone sells merchandise, but we — Dr. Karen Siegemund of Rage Against the Media and I — believe we’ve created pithy, timely and powerful products that provide devastating comebacks to Liberal arguments and which serve as conversation starters.  They own the media but we own the truth.  They can hit a million people at once with their lies; we need to be a million people changing one mind at a time. Watch the video (it’s fun) and then go to Be the Media dot US and start the...
