President Truman said that "the buck stops here" and was prepared to take responsibility for his actions.
The present Coward-in-Chief doesn't agree with that philosophy and Hillary Clinton ,courageously , is taking the fall for him over the Benghazi debacle. When the Supreme Commander is hiding behind a woman the US public must wonder about his ability to lead. Hillary's selfless action shows that the Democratic Party made a big mistake in choosing Obama for the presidency. Obama had two choices over Benghazi - admitting to incompetence or lying. He found another way in blaming someone else for the disaster. The reality probably is that the security briefings on the previous two bombings clashed with his golf days.
Australia's chief Antarctic scientists says scientists are not making alarmist claims. I am in complete agreement with him as all the real scientists studying real world climate data using the scientific method such as DR Roy Spencer ,Professor Lindzen of MIT and thousands more are not alarmist. Pseudo-scientists who call scientists who disagree with the global warming religion "deniers", haven't heard of the word falsification which is a fundamental tenet of the Scientific Method. These are the people who deny scientific data such as global warming being non-existent for 16 years and Antarctic sea ice at an all-time record to promote a scare that keeps them all in jobs .These are the people who believe that their garbage-in garbage out computer models are more accurate than real observations. These are the people who believe scientific method is altering data to agree with a favorite theory and not vice versa .
AUSTRALIA'S chief Antarctic scientist says claims by climate experts about environmental changes in the southern continent are not alarmist.
The Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) told a Senate estimates hearing on Tuesday "rapid changes" taking place across the icy land mass would have significant impact on global climate.
Changes in ocean flows and shifts in Antarctic ice cap levels were occurring at rates faster than at any other time in history, chief scientist Nick Gales said.
For more information on the disappearing ice this graph from Real Science explains.
Of course pseudo-scientists have problems realizing that average summer temperatures of minus 35 degrees Centigrade will not promote melting . Maybe they are not taught that zero Deg C is the melting point of ice. Of course they do all their research on the relatively small Antarctic peninsula which is like extrapolating the climate of the US from Florida.

It defies imagination that a president borrowing a trillion dollars a year can even be considered for re-election. Selling your country to overseas interests ( mostly China) is not a good thing to have on your election resume It is only the liberal media bias that has kept Obama afloat for so long. The fact that Romney won the first debate is not as important as that it was the first occasion for many US voters to have a good look at him and they liked what they saw. Romney now leads by 2 points in both the Gallup and Rasmussen polls and the election will go to the wire.

The continued growth of sea ice in Antarctica has been in direct conflict with the "settled science" climate models for years and has culminated in a record ice area this year. Without a shred of embarrassment and ignoring their previous prognostications the climate Illuminati now say global warming causes more Antarctic ice using amazing mental gymnastics to prove their point. These are the same people who came up with a theory to prove that "snowmageddon" in the US was also caused by global warming so they have form in the silly theory area. These people have been, are and will be an incredible stain on the name of science for generations to come and the only consolation is that when the climate house of cards collapses and it will, most of these charlatans will be out of a job. Seth Borenstein gives his "cockeyed" explanation of the cockeyed science theory .

Energy distributors say that non-solar homes are paying the bulk of the poles-and-wires distribution cost causing their power costs to soar. This is the obvious result of the rip-off-your-neighbour solar rebate scheme put in place by our mentally-challenged pollies as a sop to the greenies. It is now proposed that solar homes pay a levy or connection cost for distribution which makes a lot of sense. An argument is made for time-of-use tariffs to reduce peak demand which can reduce requirement for peaking plant but at the end of the day power generators have to survive and if peak rates are reduced non-peak rates will increase.
