A leaked version of the climate change encyclical written by Pope Francis ignited a storm of controversy earlier this week.

It seems like only yesterday we were reporting on Dr. Matt Taylor, the brilliant British scientist who was instrumental in landing a probe on a comet hundreds of millions of miles away, who became the target of social media wrath.

His crime: Wearing a shirt that was deemed “anti-woman” by hyper-feminists.

I have the pleasure of working with Dr. Roger Cohen, RWC Fellow American Physical Society, to publicize a better understanding of climate science and the flaws associated with the models that are being pushed to generated bad policy.

Aleister’s grim update on Vermont’s Obamacare struggles prompted me to double check the status of Covered California, the supposed poster child of successful state exchanges.

As I suspected, the prognosis is not good.

Covered California has lost bragging rights for highest health-insurance exchange enrollment to Florida, new federal figures show.

What is the line between political hyperbole and utter fantasy?

Whatever it is, President Obama has completely crossed that particular Rubicon. I recently noted that his assertions that America has become more respected internationally under his watch were not quite based in reality.

As the American press reports breathlessly on the #WarOnWomen in conjunction with Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Run Version 2.0, two of Professor Jacobson’s colleagues are battling to defend research showing that there may actually be a campus #WarOnMen.

A favorite assertion of campus-level feminist activists is that women in the sciences have a...
