Weaver’s curious “not/not”s and novel remedy

A few days ago, I had commented on Andrew Weaver’s utterances of some “very conservative” (his depiction, not mine) projections. I might well have missed his prophetic pronouncements had he not decided to widely circulate the April 20 Statement of Claim* pertaining to his allegations of defamation against The National Post. * Not only has…

Weaver’s wobbly “conservative” claims

Andrew Weaver was one of the Lead Authors of Working Group I’s “Chapter 10: Global Climate Projections” in the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report. While this chapter received one of the IPCC Report Card’s eight As, of the 545 References for chapter 10, 29 were not peer-reviewed. Six of the peer-reviewed articles cited in this chapter…

Pachauri earns an F for “truth in posting”

On April 20 – the day after FoxNews reported on our IPCC Report Card – Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, the IPCC Chair (who also happens to be “director of the Yale Climate and Energy Institute”) in conjunction with a “research associate” had an opinion article published on Yale’s “Environment 360” website.

Right from the early days of the global warming controversy, they whacked…

YVR: no news, bad news, good news!

As I had noted in my post of April 2, I had submitted a missive to YVR via their Contact Us page regarding their arbitrary decision to discriminate against domestic passengers who use commercial shuttle services by forcing them to walk to and from the international terminal. In the interim, I have been in E-mail…

YVR’s irrational Olympic shuttle “legacy”

Some years ago, my father coined the word “aggrannoyance” to describe situations which are both annoying and aggravating. This post is about an aggrannoyance I experienced at Vancouver International Airport during the course of a recent trip to Toronto (and back). The following is a message I sent via the YVR Contact Us page, and…
