Here’s the truth about climate change: The nominal 0.7 degree Celsius increase in mean temperature over the last fifty-or-so years is, at best, inconclusive. The average volume and severity of hurricanes hasn’t gotten worse, despite predictions to the contrary. Much of the world has actually been trending cooler for the last few years. I’m a fan of being eco-friendly, and I’ll be among the first in line to buy an affordable fuel cell or electric car once a usable refueling infrastructure is in place, but the evidence points to Al Gore’s ‘inconvenient truth’—for which he ludicrously won a Nobel Peace Prize—being neither particularly inconvenient nor true.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
