Stupidity as a signal

Courtesy of Ed Driscoll over at Instapundit: That’s the Washington Post saying that the current energy crisis was supposed to kickstart a green revolution, “but the world wasn’t ready.” There’ll be snowmen in Hell before I pay my way through the Washington Post paywall, but since they’re the extreme left’s most loyal propagandists it’s unlikely…

DR: It’s hot in Spain—and that’s on you

You may think my headline is interpretive: that I’m paraphrasing what I perceive to be the subtext of an article in DR. Unfortunately, however, my headline is actually just a loose translation of DR’s own: The temperature in Southern Europe is breaking records – and it’s your faultSilas Bay Nielsen, DR.dk, May 23 (“Temperaturen i Sydeuropa slår…

A Generation Robbed of Its Youth

Terese Hauschultz is a young woman: she claims to have just turned 22, and I have no reason to doubt her. She was therefore born early in 2000: part of the last cohort to be born in the twentieth century or among the first to be born in the twentieth, depending on where you draw…

Friday Stuff

There’s not a lot of non-Olympic coverage of America in Danish media today. Berlingske was apparently so hard up for material that they ran with a dog bites man story: Donald Trump said something mean about the disappointing performance of the American women’s soccer team, and Berlingske was on it! Later in the day they…

Hot Stuff

Note: There was no AmerikanskeTilstande post yesterday due to an unforeseen opportunity to dine with Herself, unaccompanied by our spawn, at an actual restaurant, for the first time since 2019. The opportunity was seized. Science and math are magnificent fields worthy of our deepest respect, as well as our gratitude for all they’ve given us,…

Reaping What They Sue

An interesting article from DR today: Teens Sue Sweden for Betraying Climate: How It’s Gone in Three Similar Cases, Simon Andersen Nielsen, DR.dk, February 13 It begins with events in Sweden and looks at three similar cases, in Ireland, Holland, and Norway, and explores what it all could mean for Denmark. A group of young…
