  • Biofuels Meltdown

    02/13/2008 6:38:26 AM PST · by rellimpank · 136 replies · 183+ views
    American Spectator ^ | 13 feb 08 | William Tucker
    Last week two studies published in Science announced what anyone might have suspected all along. "Biofuels," rather than reducing carbon emissions, are adding two them -- possibly by a factor of nearly 100! The two studies may finally puncture the myth that anything is to be gained from burning crops for fuel. From the very beginning, there was never any indication that turning corn into ethanol was improving our energy independence. As that effort faltered, the myth arose that at least it was reducing carbon emissions. Now it has been shown to do neither. Meanwhile, thanks to a 51-cents-per-gallon tax...

    Inconvenient Global Warming Myths by: Mary Kapp, July 25, 2007 When audiences ask Christopher Horner, author of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming, why he hasn’t made a video of his rebuttal to former Vice President Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth,” he responds, “Well, just imagine 90 minutes of icebergs not melting…” Horner works for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a think tank which seeks free market solutions to environmental problems. “Climate change has never been secure,” the author of the Politically Incorrect New York Times bestseller points out. “This has nothing to do with the impact of humankind.” “Weather has...

    Global Warming: If the rock stars who flew hundreds of thousands of miles in their jets to save the earth wanted to hug trees, they could have hugged the forest that once covered Greenland. We didn't see Sheryl Crow passing out single-sheet allotments of toilet paper to Live Earth concert-goers. But we did see perhaps the biggest-ever exercise in hypocrisy and futility as performers around the globe plugged in and amped up to save the earth from the climate impact of excessive energy consumption. John Rego, environmental director of Live Earth, insists the multi-continent charade, like the mansions of Gore,...

But the outrage and passion felt so prepackaged you half-expected Ludacris (who rapped about the evils of SUVs) to say "this moral outrage is brought to you by GE's 'Ecomagination.' " Indeed, one could say that Live Earth is proof that global warming has jumped the shark, except for the fact that the phrase "jumped the shark" has jumped the shark.

    The American scientific establishment is starting to take baby steps away from taking sides in the politics of global warming. It's sad to have to read science articles for political spin, like some announcement by the Kremlin. The last issue of SCIENCE is waffling like mad on the global warming fad, warning its readers that it may not be so settled a question. Under the headline "Another Global Warming Icon Comes Under Attack," SCIENCE writer Richard Kerr writes: "...a group of mainstream atmospheric scientists is disputing a rising icon of global warming, and researchers are giving some ground." ...

    In 1985, the Live Aid concert actually asked music lovers to do something -- to donate their own money to help the starving in Africa. Throwing money into dictatorships might not have been the smartest way to help Africa's poor, but it had a morality feeling to it -- people were asked to do something selfless in return for their entertainment. It was appropriate that one-hit-wonder Bob Geldof was knighted for his work in spearheading the event. Things have changed in the music business. In 2005 came Live 8, a concert designed to pressure the leaders of the G8 nations...

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Bob Geldof, who organized the Live Aid and Live 8 benefit concerts, criticized the Live Earth music events Al Gore is putting together this summer, saying they lack a specific goal, according to a Dutch newspaper report Saturday. The Live Earth concerts will be held in cities around the world on July 7, with proceeds funding a yet-to-be-named foundation to combat climate change, under Gore's direction. The shows will take place in London; New York; Tokyo; Shanghai, China; Johannesburg, South Africa; Sydney, Australia; and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Organizers have also promised an event in Antarctica.

    Live Earth has been branded a foul-mouthed flop. Organisers of the global music concert - punctuated by swearing from presenters and performers - had predicted massive viewing figures. But BBC's live afternoon television coverage attracted an average British audience of just 900,000. In the evening, when coverage switched from BBC2 to BBC1, the figure rose to just 2.7 million. And the peak audience, which came when Madonna sang at Wembley, was a dismal 4.5 million. Three times as many viewers saw the Princess Diana tribute on the same channel six days before. Two years ago, Live 8 drew a peak...

    The Gospel of Gore By Amanda Carpenter Monday, July 9, 2007 If Al Gore wore a high-collared black suit instead of a polo shirt and jeans to the Washington, D.C. Live Earth concert, he might have been mistaken for a preacher. He gave a brief sermon Saturday, July 7 on global warming with a solemn opening. “Today we are gathered on all seven continents and eight giant concerts and in 10,000 other gatherings, many as large as this one, two billion people, we are gathered, with one message.” He then asked those congregated on the National Mall to commit themselves...

    In his latest missive, "Moving Beyond Kyoto," in the Sunday New York Times, Al Gore promoted his coming Live Earth concert with an assault on reason: Mankind's carbon-dioxide emissions "have literally changed the heat balance between Earth and the Sun." In his universe, the earth (mean surface temperature, 59 F) warms the sun (9,953 F). But it's nice to see Mr. Gore acknowledge the research of geologists and solar scientists into the sun's role in heating the planet. Many of these experts have concluded that instead of tilting at warming windmills, mankind should prepare for the next Big Chill. R....

When I started that job in 1999 the evidence that carbon emissions caused global warming seemed pretty conclusive, but since then new evidence has weakened that case. I am now skeptical. In the late 1990s, this was the evidence suggesting that carbon emissions caused global warming: Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, proved in a laboratory a century...

    As an object of human pity, our sun seems a poor candidate. It is the dominant object in our sky. It is at least 4.6 billion years old. Its surface temperature is 10,000 degrees. Its warmth has incubated life on Earth; a solar storm could incinerate it. In 2003, a solar magnetic storm generated a wind that blew past Earth at up to 15 million miles an hour, setting off reddish and blue-green auroras visible as far south as Texas. That solar wind has now been tracked beyond the edge of the solar system. Observed through an h-alpha solar telescope,...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Hurricanes over the past 5,000 years appear to have been controlled more by El Nino and an African monsoon than warm sea surface temperatures, such as those caused by global warming, researchers said Wednesday. The study, published in the journal Nature, adds to the debate on whether seas warmed by greenhouse gas emissions lead to more hurricanes, such as those that bashed the Gulf of Mexico in 2005. Some researchers say warmer seas appear to have contributed to more intense hurricanes, while others disagree. The U.N. International Panel on Climate Change said this year it was...

    So that the sun would rise and the rain fall, the Mexica and Maya peoples of Meso-America once cut out countless living hearts on stone altars or tossed maidens down wells. Their priesthoods convinced them that the gods who controlled natural forces were propitiated through blood sacrifice. Most ancient cultures, if only symbolically, practiced something of the same. A belief in or impulse to sacrifice seems inherent in the human race. This may be Darwinian: Without parental sacrifices children would not thrive, nor without the blood of warriors could the tribe survive. Some concept of sacrifice is at the core...
