Forget about getting stuck in traffic — a “flying car” that can pull
double duty on highways and airstrips is ready for take-off.
The hybrid flying machine called Transition is scheduled to be
delivered to consumers starting in late 2012. It was built by
Terrafugia, a Massachusetts company founded by MIT-educated pilots and
The uncanny contraption — a two-seat prop plane that transforms into a
wheeled vehicle capable of driving at highway speeds — cleared a
regulatory hurdle recently when the U.S. Department of Transportation
gave it a special three-year exemption from tire-selection and
Instead of automotive glass, the windshield will be made from tougher
polycarbonate materials to keep the plane light and prevent breakage
in the event it hits a flock of birds midair. The Transition will also
be equipped with smaller and lighter motorcycle tires.
“This is just fun. It is a flying car, right?” Terrafugia CEO Carl
Dietrich told The Daily, explaining that Transition was designed to
give pilots more flexibility to use the nation’s 5,000 small public

I finally figured it out 2 minutes ago.
26 skeptic societies offering prizes totaling $3,000,000 all refuse to
acknowledge my videos when I apply for their challenge.
Do you know why? Skeptics know that no normal person can win a
But when they realize Genesis Adam, the son of God is applying,
they're not denying me because they 'don't want to feed delusions'.
THEY KNOW THAT ADAM IS THE *ONLY* MAN WHO REALLY COULD WIN!
They didn't think it could happen, they played their hands and lost,
and now they all sook big time. OK they make millions of dollars
exposing Sally the astrologer too.
Randi employs a dozen skeptics full time, do you think he would reply
to ADAM's application?

HOW DOES HANSEN GET AWAY WITH THIS?
By meteorologist Joe Bastardi
You folks have been reading about how this could be the warmest year on
record, as James Hansen continues to push his "distorted" view of the
temperature. How can I say that?
Here is an excerpt from an article that Dr. David Whitehouse recently
"...Hansen claims that, according to his Gisstemp database, the year
from April 2009 to April 2010 has a temperature anomaly of 0.65 deg C
(based on a 1951 - 1980 average) making it the warmest year since modern
records began. It is a fractionally warmer than 2005 he says, although
an important point to be made is that statistically speaking, taking
into account the error of measurement and the scatter of previous
datapoints, it is not a significant increase..."
Here is the simple rebuttal to Hansen.

there is a common presumption that glaciation requires cooling,
which was efficiently disposed of by George Simpson
with a table-top expeiment.
actually, I can't get audio on these pubterms.
there is no actual theory about the production of oil, such that
that production could definitively be associated with dinosuars and/or
any particular *permeable* strata in which it is found. as far as I
the presupposition is that the sediments pile-up in the oecan, and
the mere weight of them produces enough pressure
to create the "fossilized fuels TM" -- it's just a tradename.

E-mails raise legitimate questions

The author of “Assault on freedom sends chills” (The Daily Progress,
May 26) apparently believes that academia-sponsored scientific
research is pure and untainted and should never be doubted or
questioned by mere mortals. Unfortunately, experience has proved
The writer expressed outrage at Ken Cuccinelli’s request for access to
professor Michael Mann’s climate change research, notes, etc. However,
pirated e-mail from the Climate Research Unit raised questions over
whether Mann had colluded with researchers at the CRU, at the
University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate
How pure and untainted was the research at the University of East
Anglia? The investigation that was launched to answer that question
appears to have been focused on the wrong targets.

Population phobia is relatively recent in Australia, but it's been a staple
for decades among international panic merchants.
Overpopulation might be the greatest non-issue of the past 100 years, unless
you count that global warming caper.
Easy solution to supposed overpopulation worries: build more cities,
suburbs, roads and dams.

Spring and all this anxiety about DDT and other chemicals, and how they were
going to cause an epidemic of cancer. Then it was the population scare. And
then it was the oil running out. And then it was acid rain. And then it was
the ebola virus. And then it was global warming. And on and on it goes."
