  • Elizabeth Kolbert on Field Notes from a Catastrophe

    Author Elizabeth Kolbert talks about how global warming is not a theory, but a fact. She speaks of the deep concern the scientific community has, and how other countries have begun to take steps to address this growing problem while America lags far behind. Field Notes from a Catastrophe is a compelling audiobook you'll want to listen to and share with others.

    Overall

    Here is another Chicken Little 'The sky is falling' warning on global warming. This is a hands in the air crying and pleading book on what some (I repeat SOME) self-serving climatologists say is going to happen. 20 years ago 'climatologists’ were warning us of another ice age. Does anyone bring up the FACT that temperature fluctuation is a natural occurrence? Or the FACT that temperatures are about the same as they were 150 years ago? Or the FACT that temperatures are still below the recorded temperatures from 70 years ago? Reactionary knee jerk environmentalists jump from one emergency to another warning us about the next crisis that is going to kill us. What about the ‘hole in the ozone layer? Wasn’t that going to kill us? Did the ban on cfc’s stop it ? Well, when it was shown that they ‘hole ‘ isn’t getting bigger and the reason there is a ‘hole’ to begin with is centripetal force, the chicken little group went to global cooling. That didn't fly. So the next crisis became ‘Global Warming’. (Next in the pipeline is 'Extreme Weather')
    Watch the news, the sheep that report the news never say that ‘global warming’ is a theory, it is reported as fact. It is sad that the ‘Global Warming’ band wagon is full. Maybe a little less hot air from these thoughtless-mind nummbed robots will move us on to the next crisis.

  • Breaking the Da Vinci Code

    Many who have read the New York Times best seller The Da Vinci Code have questions that arise from seven codes, expressed or implied, in Dan Brown's book. In Breaking the Da Vinci Code, Darrell Bock, Ph.D., responds to the novelist's claims using central ancient texts.

    Overall

    Ok... we know the Davinci code is against a lot of the church principals and history, but this book is trying to 'debunk' the book. It kind of goes on the argument 'the Bible makes no mention of Jesus being marries. We can't believe the Gnostic gospels...so the Davinci code is broken!'. Their arguements are just as shallow as the arguements in the Davince code.

    Funeral services for former President Ronald Reagan took place in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on June 11, 2004. More than two-dozen world leaders gathered to remember one of the most beloved presidents of the 20th century. The services were officiated by former Senator John Danforth of Missouri who is an ordained Episcopal priest.

    It is wonderful that Audible has put this piece of history in the free download section. Get it and save it for the children and grandchildren.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not history, not theology, just great fiction"
    "Unpolished and a bit disappointing"
    Overall

    After reading the popular DaVinci Code I was excited to see the another Robert Langdon thriller by Dan Brown. This book is a precursor to the DaVinci and does explain some of the references in the book. But this book shows that Mr. Browns writing skills have improved over time. The writing, action, plot and dialog in this book are juvenile compared to his most recent best seller. I found myself rolling my eyes at holes in the plot and canyon sized leaps of reason. Parts of the books climatic scene reminded me of far-fetched parts the movie ?Batman and Robin?. Don?t get me wrong, the book was a good listen, but it is not a ?must get?.

    You've probably heard clips from Senator Clinton's interview with Barbara Walters. But now you can listen to her full account of her years in the White House. Hillary Clinton vividly describes her pain over her husband's betrayal with Monica Lewinky saying that former President Bill Clinton lied to her about the relationship until the weekend before he admitted the nature of it to a grand jury.

    Overall

    Can any one blow more hot air than the Clintons. If you are a liberal that loves this self-centered egotist BUY IT! If you are a sane rational person that gets enough of self-serving walking lie by watching any newscast. why bother. Remember the most dangerous place in Washington DC is between Hillary and a camera.
