  • An Election Year Dawns Without Keith Olbermann (Current drops him from IA coverage)

    Keith Olbermann, who came to Current TV this year to remake the channel and compete against his old home, MSNBC, is sitting out the biggest political nights of the season. Despite being the biggest star on the fledging channel, Mr. Olbermann is not scheduled to anchor Current’s coverage of the Iowa caucus or the New Hampshire primary in January. Instead, Current’s other prime time anchors, Cenk Uygur and Jennifer Granholm, will be joined by the channel’s chairman, the former vice president Al Gore. Mr. Olbermann also was noticeably absent from two special reports that Current produced after Republican debates in...

    However, most commentators gave short shrift to the most important—in a sense, the only—outcome of the meeting. This was, of course, the agreement to hold yet another conference in yet another nice location (Qatar) about a year from now. The Durban conference was the seventeenth conference of its kind. They have been held annually since 1995 in places such as Geneva (in July 1996) and Bali (in December 2007). Don’t hold your breath for one to be held in Newark, New Jersey, or Fargo, North Dakota. Snip . . . The Progressives are well aware that their opposition to geoengineering...
  • Climate change drops off 'hot topic' list (science fiction unaffordable)

    Climate change drops off 'hot topic' list11:38 15 December 2011 by Adam Corner Interest in climate change has dropped off, and resistance to sustainability surcharges is a consequence of recession This year's British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey comes complete with gloomy headlines on public opinion about climate change. Compared with surveys in 1993 and 2000, concern about the seriousness of environmental threats has decreased, and the number of people saying they were willing to pay more for environmentally friendly services has dropped significantly. Against a backdrop of economic woes, the finding that people are less keen to pay a sustainability...
  • Canada first Nation to Pull out of Kyoto Protocol

    Canada on Monday became the first country to announce it would withdraw from the Kyoto protocol on climate change, dealing a symbolic blow to the already troubled global treaty. Environment Minister Peter Kent broke the news on his return from talks in Durban, where countries agreed to extend Kyoto for five years and hammer out a new deal forcing all big polluters for the first time to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Canada, a major energy producer which critics complain is becoming a climate renegade, has long complained Kyoto is unworkable precisely because it excludes so many significant emitters. "As we've...

    Hayhoe submitted her climate science chapter in mid-2009 but never heard back from the authors. Maple said the book has been delayed because he has been too busy to focus on it. He said Gingrich is still interested in doing the book and has not asked him to slow walk it. The Gingrich campaign did not answer emails seeking comment about the project. At this pace, Maple said, his new book with Gingrich would probably be out in 2013, after the presidential election.

    BEIJING – Just in time for the Christmas season, when piggish habits make us all wonder how we’re going to carry around that new holiday weight, comes this story of one strong pig. Hailing from China’s central Anhui province and born in July without its two hind legs, this two-legged wonder nicknamed “Strong Pig” has caused a stir online here with the strange walking technique it has adopted to get around the farm. Hiking its body almost 90 degrees up in the air, Strong Pig has learned to balance its over 66 pounds of pork on its two front legs...

    Canada will pull out of the Kyoto protocol on climate change, Environment Minister Peter Kent said on Monday, dealing a symbolic blow to the troubled global treaty. Canada will become the first country to formally withdraw from Kyoto, which it says is badly flawed because it does not cover all major emitters of greenhouse gasses, notably the United States and China. (SNIP) “As we’ve said, Kyoto for Canada is in the past … We are invoking our legal right to formally withdraw from Kyoto,” Kent told reporters after returning from talks in Durban, South Africa, on extending the protocol. He...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich‘s hobby, he says, is studying “dinosaurs and other fossils.” He openly mourned the death of Knut the polar bear.Gingrich believes it is a “false dichotomy” to group policies according to whether they deal with the country’s economic problems or protect the environment. Instead, he thinks government can incentivize the production of new energy technologies, which would consequently help the environment and the economy by making the country less dependent on foreign oil. And he is not short on ideas of how to do it. “One generation’s science fiction is the next generation’s practical reality,” wrote...

    The devotion of right-thinking persons to the Kyoto Protocol is not just puzzling. It is proof they are not serious. If they were, they would be even more fed up than we so-called "deniers" over the failure of Kyoto, and its 17 fancy follow-up conferences, to do anything important to stop climate change. Obviously supporters such as Jean Chretien and Bill Clinton were cynics, signing the accord for domestic political gain without having or wanting a plan to meet its targets. Indeed, Clinton never even asked for U.S. Senate ratification, let alone pushed for it. But what can explain the...

    DURBAN, South Africa (AP) — An all-encompassing climate deal "may be beyond our reach for now," the U.N. chief said Tuesday as China and India delivered a setback to European plans to negotiate a new treaty that would bind all parties to their pledges on greenhouse gas emissions. The European "road map" toward a new accord that would take effect after 2020 is a centerpiece of negotiations among 194 countries at a U.N. climate conference in the South African coastal city of Durban. It has been presented as a condition for Europe to renew and expand its emissions reduction targets...

    EXCERPT Describing an event where he was paired up next to the monotone-talking ex-vice president, Woodward said, “Now, sitting next to Gore is taxing.” After some laughs from the crowd, Woodward continued, “In fact, it’s unpleasant.” Woodward offered up another tidbit from the conversation with his dinner companion. The investigative reporter asked the politician, more than five years after leaving office, how much the public knows about what went on during the Clinton administration. Gore replied, “One percent.” Woodward admitted that revelation made him feel a bit icky, saying, “I kind of died inside and have to confess to having...

    You won't be hearing wind chill warnings in the Twin Cities this winter - but not because it won't get cold. Several National Weather Service offices, including the office in Chanhassen, are replacing wind chill warnings with what they're calling "extreme cold" warnings. "In large part, it's just a name change," said Todd Krause, warning coordination meteorologist for the weather service's Chanhassen office. Krause said warnings used to be issued if the wind chill factor dropped to minus 35. But if the temperature was minus 35 with no wind, no warning was issued. The new extreme cold warning will be...

    Climategate 2.0: Bias in Scientific Research November 23rd, 2011 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Ever since the first Climategate e-mail release, the public has become increasingly aware that scientists are not unbiased. Of course, most scientists with a long enough history in their fields already knew this (I discussed the issue at length in my first book Climate Confusion), but it took the first round of Climategate e-mails to demonstrate it to the world. The latest release (Climategate 2.0) not only reveals bias, but also some private doubts among the core scientist faithful about the scientific basis for the...

    Do you know what Africa needs most of all? If you answered food or international peacekeepers, then you're wrong and clearly not cut out to work for the government of a modern country. No what a continent filled with genocide, starving children, female genital mutilation and warring factions needs is help fighting global warming. Even as Climategate 2.0 emails reveal that there's less of science and more hot air to the whole thing, global leaders will do their part to cut carbon emissions by flying to South Africa to discuss how to cap global warming, and not in the usual...

    Al Gore: Americans Are Yearning for 'Unvarnished Truth' Offered by Current TV By Tim Graham Created 11/25/2011 - 11:26am In a special 80th anniversary edition of Broadcasting & Cable magazine (not online), former vice president Al Gore lays out his vision for how the American public is just desperately hungry for Current TV -- actual ratings numbers notwithstanding. To add humor on top of humor, Gore insisted that Current TV is not really leftist. "Some of our competitors may see us as being on the left side of the spectrum," Gore admitted, "but the entire spectrum has been pulled so...

    About 5,000 emails by scientists contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have been made public. Climate skeptics see it as a repeat of a similar e-mail release in 2009 that cast doubts on the objectivity and science of warming advocates – and an opportunity. And, they've already adopted a name for the new release, tying it to the 2009 scandal: Climategate 2.0.Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, says the latest e-mails – if authentic – could debunk the Obama administration's justification for imposing costly, crippling regulations on the...
