The Super Greenhouse Effect

For many years now, I have been batting around some questions in my head regarding Manmade Global Warming Theories (MGWT) and the possible effect of very high concentrations of Greenhouse Gases during periods of Meteorological Thermal Inversions (MTI) that are persistent during the winter months in many locations here in Utah.  It seems to me…

Medicare Not Socialism

Throughout our current debate over current efforts to “reform” our healthcare system one of the core points of contention has been over the definition of Socialism.  Opponents to the current reform efforts of President Obama and Democratic Congressional leaders have properly pointed out that the current proposed reforms would ultimately result in the advancement of…

A Pragmatic Energy Solution

The following is an excerpt from a conversation that I had in response to an essay written by Gary Kunkel titled, “The Madness of King Coal.”  While there are plenty of people who are critical of our current dependence on dirty fuels like coal and petroleum, at some point we must start talking about viable…

Anti-theism is Intolerance

There May Be No Singularity

This morning I woke up and decided that I was going to depart from my regular political rants and instead I am going to challenge Einstein and one of his long standing, widely held ideas concerning black holes. You see, Einstein predicted that inside a black hole, there would be so much mass concentrated down into…

Gravity Bow Wave

I’ve been giving some thought to the various theories regarding the expansion of the universe.  While we have known since Edwin Hubble first made his observations using the Doppler effect that the universe is expanding in all directions, it was not until 1998 when scientists where observing a Type La Supernovae that they discovered that…

Obama’s Nuclear Option

While I rarely agree with President Obama, I feel compelled to give him credit when credit is due.  His announcement in the State of the Union address to support “a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants” and his later support for tripling the amount of federal loan guarantees in early February may mark…
