BONUS! The Climate had its Own Ideas

Junk Science
December 26, 2020

The actor James Woods, playing a police captain in a TV series some years ago, once declared (I quote from memory): “You’d think being right when everyone around you is wrong would get old. But you know what? It doesn’t!” Watching the ludicrous left being ludicrously wrong gives me a similar feeling.

This story in Junk Science reviews 10 predictions for climate disasters in 2020 where the climate just wouldn’t play along. We might as well laugh. What else can one do when reading about how the only things quietly disappearing from Glacier National Park are the signs warning that the glaciers will disappear?

The Soul of the University

Universities are locked in a struggle between preserving their historical role as educational institutions committed to truth-seeking and a new mandate that subordinates truth to the values of social diversity. The University of Chicago and Northwestern provide case studies from both sides for Law and Liberty’s John O. McGinnis to report on what is at stake.

Demonizing Lockdown Skeptics

Skepticism entails suspending judgement until we have sufficient evidence. Until recent days, every thinking person valued it as a necessary corrective for popular orthodoxies and enthusiasms. Brendan O’Neill, writing in Spiked, thinks vilifying and shaming those skeptical of lockdowns is akin to a new witch hunt.

The False Promise of Techno-solutions

The rush to further embrace technology unleashed by the Covid-19 pandemic is at last triggering sober second thoughts. In Hedgehog Review, Christine Rosen argues that despite Zoom’s advantages we still long for face-to-face human connections. Seeking wholesale solutions to human problems in technology, she argues, exacts a high price.

Can Democracy Survive Social Media?

Twitter has permanently banned Donald Trump, a serving American President and recipient of the second-largest number of votes ever garnered by a presidential candidate. In Unherd, Ed West notes that Twitter indulges vast amounts of extreme incivility, incitement to violence and even racial hatred – provided it furthers the progressive agenda.
