  • Modulation of Ice Ages via Precession and Dust-Albedo Feedbacks

    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.

Hes talking about her practices. She obviously doesnt like it, but that doesnt make it lying because you dont like it....

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...

    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...

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.

    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...

    A coupla links on the subject... observations to follow. http://dailycaller.com/2015/10/27/scientists-claim-high-co2-levels-are-making-people-dumber/ http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2015/09/climate-change-aliens-exoplanets The problem (IMHO) is its not making people dumb enough! Tons of Bee Ess ideology pretending to be science (Global Warming/Climate Change on cold days... or AGW/CC)) is dumped daily into our biosphere far more damaging to the people of Earth than CO2. For liberty and prosperity (to be replaced with a rationed subsistence) must be surrendered to central hyper-nanny-bureaucrat authority to save the planet! ("dear leaders" exempt... of course) But in spite of a media full court press, not enough people are dumb enough (yet?) to buy the...

    IT IS HARD to see Gore in Florida without thinking about him not winning the 2000 election by 537 votes in the Sunshine Stateor, if you prefer, one vote on the Supreme Courtto George W. Bush. You get the feeling that Gore thinks about it, too, and not just as a climate activist angry that Bush broke his campaign pledge to crack down on carbon emissions shortly after he arrived in the White House. At one point during his Climate Reality conference, while Gore was moderating a discussion about the Florida governments hostility to solar power, someone mentioned shenanigans involving...
  • U.S. Cities We Could Lose to the Sea (Algore's oceanfront mansion in cartoon)

    Historic carbon emissions have already locked in enough future sea level rise to submerge most of the homes in each of several hundred American towns and cities, according to Climate Central-led research published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The animated timeline on this page maps, year by year, how the total number of locked-in cities could climb to more than 1,500, if pollution continues unchecked through the end of the century. It also lays out an alternative timeline based on extreme carbon cuts, leading to fewer than 700 locked-in cities. You can watch threats unfold nationwide...

    The Climate Change Business Journal has calculated that global warming is now a $1.5 trillion a year industry. The Business Journals report is not available for free online, but its findings are reviewed by the Insurance Journal. They are eye-opening, to say the least: The $1.5 trillion global climate change industry grew at between 17 and 24 percent annually from 2005-2008, slowing to between 4 and 6 percent following the recession with the exception of 2011s inexplicable 15 percent growth, according to Climate Change Business Journal. The San Diego, Calif.-based publication includes within that industry nine segments and 38 sub-segments....

    Supporters of Al Gore have begun a round of conversations among themselves and with the former vice president about his running for president in 2016, the latest sign that top Democrats have serious doubts that Hillary Clinton is a sure thing. Gore, 67, won the popular vote in the 2000 election, and has been mentioned as a possible candidate in every contested Democratic primary since then. He instead spent much of the 2000s focused on environmental campaigning and business ventures. He has largely slipped out of public view more recent years. But in recent days, theyre getting the old gang...

    Politically wounded presumptive nominee staggering in the desert of her email scandal.Hillary is politically wounded by her never-ending email scandal, which keeps sucking the life out of her favorability ratings, and has Democrats panicked with fear: Im not sure they completely understand the credibility they are losing, by the second, said one Democratic strategist, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. At some point this goes from being something you can rationalize away to something that becomes political cancer. And we are getting pretty close to the cancer stage, because this is starting to get ridiculous. Look, this is a...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) Two people close to Al Gore pushed back on a report Thursday that suggested the former vice president was considering running for president in 2016 An associate of the 67-year-old Gore told CNN that the speculation was "groundless," and a spokeswoman for Gore added later Thursday that there was "no truth" to the idea he is considering a White House run. Buzzfeed reported that supporters of Gore had begun talking about a possible presidential run, though some Gore advisers poured "lukewarm water" on the speculation. "This is people talking to people, some of whom may or may not...

    Fusion ^ | September 30, 2015 | by AMERICA with Jorge Ramos and Tamara Weston
    We all know where former vice president Al Gore stands when it comes to climate change, but what about a presidential bid for 2016? His name has routinely been floated as a potential Democratic candidate at every primary since losing the presidency to George W. Bush in 2000, but unlike 2004 and 2008, the environmental activist has yet to publicly rule out the possibility of a run. In fact, he’s remained especially shy on the subject this time around, keeping us all wondering about what would be a major political comeback.But when Fusion’s Jorge Ramos had a chance to...

    Former Vice President Al Gore made a prediction for the earth's point of no return 10 years ago and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh held him to it since that day in 2006. The countdown clock on Limbaugh's site has been running for nearly 10 years since Gore's apocalyptic prediction about the earth as a result of greenhouse emissions. Less than a month remains in the countdown. Gore predicted, when his film "An Inconvenient Truth" was first released at the Sundance Film Festival, that the earth would be in "a true planetary emergency" within the next ten years unless drastic...

    A Republican challenging Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-Ariz.) apologized Monday for saying a vast majority of the perpetrators of mass shootings are Democrats. At a candidate forum on Saturday, rancher Gary Kiehne said, "If you look at all the fiascos that have occurred, 99 percent of them have been by Democrats pulling their guns out and shooting people," The Arizona Daily Star reported. "So I don't think you have a problem with the Republicans," Kiehne added, according to the paper.

    CAIR Claims Victory Over AP Stylebooks Restrictions on Word 'Islamist' April 5, 2013 By Elizabeth Harrington (CNSNews.com) The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) praised the Associated Press (AP) for revising its stylebook to forbid the use of the word Islamist, if it is used to describe Islamic militants or extremists. In a press release on Friday, CAIR said revising the term is a "step in the right direction, and that they helped influence the APs decision. Late last year, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) approached AP about modifying the reference, which had been added to its influential...
