  • Al Gore: We're working around Donald Trump on climate change

    Donald Trump may have pulled the United States out of the Paris Agreement to combat climate change, but if former US vice president Al Gore is to be believed, Americans will fulfill its terms nonetheless. The 69-year-old environmental activist was in Berlin to preview An Inconvenient Sequel, a follow-up to his Oscar-winning 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth about global warming. Citing the axiom from physics that for every action there is an equal counter-reaction, Gore said that Trumps election had galvanized and energized environmentalists in the US. The good news is that we are working around [Trump], Gore said. The...

    Al Gores climate change documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, is getting a sequel. Paramount Pictures said Friday the follow-up to the Oscar-winning original will premiere at next Januarys Sundance Film Festival. In the new documentary, former Vice President Gore examines global warmings escalation and the solutions at hand, Paramount said.

    Watts Up With That ^ | June 28, 2016 | Ralph Ellis
    CO2 is only a bit-player in the drama of world climate, while the main characters are ice, dust and albedo....Ice age cycles have something to do with precession: the slow wobble of the axis of the Earth. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks knew of precession and called it the Great Year, because it gives warm and cool seasons over its approximate 23,000-year cycle. But there is a problem with invoking the Great Year as the regulator of ice ages, because we should really get an interglacial warming every 23,000 years or so. And we dont they only happen every...

    Cenk Uygur, host of 'The Young Turks,' discusses the results of an unscientific (but large) poll of his audience showing that about 80% of his mostly-Sanders-supporting audience would NEVER vote for Hillary Clinton. "I don't want to speak for you guys," Uygur said of his audience -- the largest single online news show on YouTube -- "It was not a small amount of people voting. Over 20,000 votes on our app and @YouTube - over 80% of our audience saying they'd never vote for Hillary. I'm shocked by that result.

    1988 was a barn-burner year for climate alarmists. Then-Sen. Al Gores steamy congressional hearing trumpeted a planet on fire, and the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was created to produce pseudo-scientific evidence blaming it on unfair capitalist industrial prosperity-spawned CO2 emissions. Canadian Environment Minister Christine Stewart explained the real cause for urgency. She told editors and reporters of the Calgary Herald, No matter if the science of global warming is all phony . . . climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world. Stewart was wrong. Consequences of that phony science...

    It's no surprise Democrat Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is an advocate of socialism. He's openly advocated for socialist policies on the 2016 campaign trail and back in the 1980s, Sanders argued bread lines are a sign of economic progress. "You know, it's funny. Sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is when people are lining up for food. That's a good thing. In other countries, people don't line up for food. The rich get the food and the poor starve to death," Sanders lamented at the time. But now that Venezuelan socialism is leading to the downfall of...

    Ten years after the Oscar-winning documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore is concerned that a potential Donald Trump presidency could roll back progress in the fight against climate change. "He has said some things on the climate crisis that I think should concern everyone,'' the former vice president told Anne Thompson in an exclusive interview on TODAY Monday."I'm not Pollyanna-ish, but I do think that there is still some basis for hope." In "An Inconvenient Truth,'' Gore used charts and graphs to make the connection between increasing carbon emissions and the changing climate. To mark the 10th anniversary of...

    There was a time in America and it wasn't even so long ago that liberals cared a lot about working-class people. They may have been misguided in many of their policy solutions e.g., raising the minimum wage but at least their hearts were in the right place. Then a strange thing happened about a decade ago. Radical environmentalists took control of the Democratic Party. These leftists care more about the supposed rise of the oceans than the financial survival of the middle class. The industrial unions made a catastrophic decision to get in bed with these...

    Al Gore is back in the news, prominently seen in a March 29 press conference led by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, where Schneiderman and his fellow AGs announced the latest effort to use racketeering laws to prosecute climate change deniers. Minutes after first thanking Gore for attending and noting how his 2006 movie galvanized the worlds attention about the urgency to act on climate change, Schneiderman spoke of how the group was working to find creative ways to enforce laws being flouted by the fossil fuel industry and their allies in their short-sighted efforts to put profits...

    Hillary Clinton owes Bernie Sanders campaign an apology, the campaign said Friday. Clinton on Thursday accused Sanders camp of lying, alleging that his campaign has been claiming Clinton accepts money from the fossil fuel industry a statement she forcefully rejected when confronted by an environmental activist. I think she probably owes the senator an apology for that because the senator is not lying about her record, Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver told MSNBC. Hes talking about her record. Hes talking about her practices. She obviously doesnt like it, but that doesnt make it lying because you dont like it....

    If all the countries do their bit then the total reduction in global warming by the year 2100 will be 0.170 degrees Centigrade. As a climate sceptic friend of mine pointed out at the time, youd experience a bigger temperature increase than that just walking down from the top to the bottom of the Eiffel tower. So theres your deal folks: you and taxpayers like you are paying $1.5 trillion a year to reduce the worlds temperatures by the end of this century by 0.170. Its so perfectly ridiculous its almost funny. And I suppose on a...

    Take a look at this abstract from the journal Progress in Human Geography: Glaciers, Gender, and Science:A FEMINIST GLACIOLOGY: framework for global environmental change research Mark Carey, M Jackson, Alessandro Antonello, Jaclyn Rushing ABSTRACT Glaciers are key icons of climate change and global environmental change. However, the relationships among gender, science, and glaciers particularly related to epistemological questions about the production of glaciological knowledge remain understudied. This paper thus proposes a feminist glaciology framework with four key components: 1) knowledge producers; (2) gendered science and knowledge; (3) systems of scientific domination; and (4) alternative representations of glaciers.

    Renewable energy advocates like to point out that the cost of renewable fuels, like solar power, have dropped substantially in the last few years. The cost of solar power for instance has fallen by more than two-thirds since 2009. Yet for all the excitement about renewable power, the reality is that the entire energy sector has essentially been in a state of deflation for the last decade. The notable drop in oil prices over the last two years aside, costs of producing oil both in the U.S. and in many parts of the world have fallen dramatically. The phase out...

    Washington could become the first state in the nation to impose a direct tax on carbon emissions from fossil fuels such as coal, gasoline and natural gas. A ballot measure before the state Legislature would create a carbon tax of $25 per metric ton of fossil fuel emissions burned in Washington, while reducing taxes. ...

    Wood Mackenzie's report, cited by the energy news service Platts, said about 3.4 million barrels' worth of oil a day was not profitable below $35 a barrel. According to the International Energy Agency, the world's supply is 97.07 million barrels a day. While today's oil prices are below this threshold, the report suggests the price at which US shale and other producers would be forced out of the market is lower than previously thought. As Platts writes, "For many producers, being cash negative is not enough of an incentive to shut down fields as restarting flow can be costly and...

    When Obama carried out his Solyndra con game, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart went to prison forbreaking In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the company’s shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials. It was also revealed that the Obama administration had...

    As world leaders gathered in Paris last month for the United Nations climate summit, many seemed surprised that several large oil companies, including BP and Shell, endorsed a carbon tax as a "key element" of any international climate deal. Less surprising was the preference of those in the renewable energy sector to see a tax on carbon. The implication was of course that if major companies - oil companies in particular - want to tax themselves, who are we to stand in the way? It must be an indication that the climate crisis is so acute that even they have...

    It's well known that many Republicans in Washington do not like Sen. Ted Cruz, but the full extent of that antipathy is coming to light this week as several current and former lawmakers say they prefer Donald Trump as the GOP nominee, although they have little regard for either man. Some GOP consultants and strategists started the rumblings in recent days. Then Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad told Republicans in his state to oppose Cruz because of the senator's opposition to ethanol subsidies. But the story broke wide open on Wednesday when former Senate Majority Leader and 1996 Republican presidential nominee...
