When Microsoft released Windows 10 on July 29, the new operating system was already mired in controversy due to the way it monitors users' activities and reports back to Microsoft. Many news sites including The New American wrote about the spyware features of Windows 10. Some considered that reporting to be little more than fanciful conspiracy theories and exaggerations. With recent admissions from the Redmond, California software giant, however, it is now clear that those reports were accurate and that Windows 10 — as an operating system — is spyware.
Representative Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, warned NOAA chief Kathryn Sullivan of potential criminal penalty for continued defiance of a congressional subpoena for data the agency used to make its controversial report on global warming.
TransCanada Corporation's shrewd political ploy to avoid having the Obama administration judge the wisdom of a Keystone Pipeline expansion just might work. If it doesn't, it won't matter: Canadian crude will find its way to refineries somewhere, somehow.
Apparently the science surrounding alleged anthropogenic (man-made) global warming (AGW) is not really so settled after all. In a barely noticed statement released last week, NASA dropped the equivalent of a nuclear bomb on the United Nations climate-alarmism machine, noting that ice across Antarctica has been growing at break-neck speed for decades. The surging ice growth, of course, directly contradicts the predictions of global-warming alarmists, including a 2013 report by the increasingly discredited UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change claiming, falsely as it turns out, that Antarctica was losing ice and causing rising sea levels.
