NYTimes: The Virus of Cynicism

WE have no clue at this point how far Ebola could spread in the United States — and no reason for panic.

But one dimension of the disease’s toll is clear. It’s ravaging Americans’ already tenuous faith in the competence of our government and its bureaucracies.

Before President Obama’s election, we had Iraq, Katrina and the meltdown of banks supposedly under Washington’s watch. Since he came along to tidy things up, we’ve had the staggeringly messy rollout of Obamacare, the damnable negligence of the Department of Veterans Affairs and the baffling somnambulism of the Secret Service.

Now this. Although months of a raging Ebola epidemic in West Africa gave the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sufficient warning and ample time to get ready for any cases here, it was caught flat-footed, as its director, Tom Frieden, is being forced bit by bit to acknowledge. Weeks ago he assured us: “We are stopping Ebola in its tracks in this country.” Over recent days he updated that assessment, saying that “in retrospect, with 20/20 hindsight,” federal officials could and should have done more at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

President Obama made his own assurances and then corrections. He said back in mid-September that “in the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home.”


Ramped-Up Strikes Stall IS Militants in Kobani

U.S.-led coalition jets bombed Islamic State targets again Saturday in Syria as the militants stepped up their fight to take the key border city of Kobani from Kurdish defenders.

The tempo of U.S.-led airstrikes has increased dramatically, with U.S. fighter craft on Friday launching six airstrikes on Islamic State positions near the border enclave, the U.S. military said. A top Kobani city official tells the Associated Press that coalition airstrikes have slowed down Islamic State, but says air power is not enough. He says Kurdish fighters need more weapons and ammunition.

Coalition forces launched at least five airstrikes in Kobani and more on Islamic State targets in Iraq. Additional Islamic State targets were hit in the same area on Wednesday and Thursday after U.S. fighter and bomber planes carried out 14 raids against the militant group.

The militants have intensified their shelling of Kobani, and several rounds dropped across the border inside Turkey.

We weren’t lying, we were oversimplifying – the Conversation’s latest ‘dog ate homework’ excuse for climate insanity

As the great unwinding of the more extreme climate alarmist positions gathers momentum, “The Conversation” provides us with a hilarious new excuse for some of the wild claims made by climate scientists over the years. Apparently they weren’t lying or exaggerating, they were “oversimplifying”.

According to The Conversation;

“To exaggerate is human, and scientists are human. Exaggeration and the complementary art of simplification are the basic rhetorical tools of human intercourse. So yes, scientists do exaggerate. … In general, limiting or extreme results come about because a simplified analysis is missing an important feedback or because an intricate model is being “exercised” by simulating an extreme scenario.”
