  • Climate Change Theorists Consistently Deceive with Glaring Omission

    While CO2, which is not a pollutant, has been steadily climbing to almost 400 parts per million over the last 75 years, temperatures in the 20th century have fluctuated greatly. The Dust Bowl years of the 1930's were very warm, but from 1940-75, the temperatures plummeted, but then rebounded between 1976-1997, but have since leveled off, with perhaps a slight warming thanks to El Nino the last few years. Meanwhile, CO2 was steadily climbing. If there is no one to one relationship/correlation between temperature and CO2 even in the 20th Century, what of the past? The problem only becomes even...

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign Tuesday rolled out a plan to increase building energy efficiency standards as a way to cut emissions and save on energy costs. The plan, her campaign said Tuesday, looks to improve building codes, provide more information about buildings' energy usage and expand appliance energy labeling as ways to reduce energy consumption. The proposal would save households and businesses $70 billion, or $600 per household, annually if implemented, Clinton's campaign said, and reduce taxpayer spending on energy in federal buildings by $8 billion. Its goal is a one-third reduction in energy waste within ten years. The far-reaching...

    DENVER - A developing winter storm is taking aim at Colorado, and it has the potential to be the biggest snowstorm of the season so far, for Denver. The El Niño weather pattern has delivered storms right into our "sweet spot" a few times since November, but Denver has only officially registered more than 3 inches of snow three times. It will take about 8 inches to take the title. That would beat the 1-day storm total from the middle of December. Denver’s only storms this season to measure more than 3 inches of snow: 7.7" December 15 4" November...

    We need an estimated $1tn per year to stay below a global temperature rise of 2C. Creating new money might be the only way to meet this financial challenge. The international community has agreed on an ambitious agenda to curb climate change. Some 195 countries have decided to try and cut greenhouse gas emissions to a level that will limit the rise in average global temperatures to well below 2C. The question we now face is: how are we going to finance the changes needed to reach this goal? Quantitative easing - creating new money - might just be the...

I’ll add to de Blasio’s comment that not only do I think we’re in an age of extreme weather, but I think that “age” started more than 20 years ago when Hurricane Andrew hit south Florida in 1992, followed by the “storm of the century” in 1993.

    One of the least reliable sources for data on climate change is the US federal government. Now, a group of 300 scientists and academics want Congress to investigate the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for cooking the books on climate data in order to erase the pause in the rise in temperature cited by, among other sources, the IPCC. Incredibly, the NOAA accumulated data by measuring the water temperature from the engine intake valves of ocean going cargo ships. The scientists want Congress to investigate whether the agency violated the Data Quality Act, which seeks to insure the accurate dissemination...

    The Daily Caller ^ | January 28, 2016 | Michael Bastasch
    Politicians and environmentalists concerned about global warming are pushing policies to cut carbon dioxide emissions from the energy sector. It's too bad they are pushing costly green energy technologies. ExxonMobil's annual energy report shows just how expensive it is to use green energy to cut CO2 emissions. Replacing coal power, for example, with wind or solar energy costs upwards of $100 and $200, respectively, per ton of CO2 reduced. That’s much more expensive than replacing coal with natural gas or simply improving vehicle engine efficiency. Pushing electric cars, however, is the most expensive way to reduce CO2 emissions, costing $800...

While that amount is still a lot of oil, it is spread out in time over an entire year, so is much less devastating to marine life than oil from a huge spill.

The Forest Service proposes reinstating the North Fork coal-mining exception to the Colorado Roadless Rule.

    Those who think the political war on carbon will cool the globe or keep climate stable need to study climate history. Temperatures on Earth dance to a cyclic rhythm every hour, every day, every month, every season, every year, and to every beat of the sun-spot and glacial cycles. The daily solar cycle causes continual changes in temperature for every spot on Earth. It produces the frosts at dawn, the mid-day heat and the cooling at sunset. It is regulated by rotation of the Earth. Superimposed on the daily solar cycle is the monthly lunar cycle, driven by the orbit...

    When it comes to measuring global warming, it's all about altitude. Temperature readings taken close to Earth's surface -- about 6 feet off the ground -- show a slightly warmer planet than measurements taken from on high by satellites in orbit. And that discrepancy has given ammunition to climate-change doubters. Government agencies and most scientists rely primarily on ground measurements, and they show that 2015 was the warmest year on record. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, NASA, the Japanese and British meteorological agencies and the World Meteorological Organization all use ground data. It's a matter of better accuracy and relevance,...

    **SNIP** 1. Biologist Paul Ehrlich predicted in the 1970s that: "Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make," and that "The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years." 2. In January 1970, Life reported, "Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support... the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution... by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half..." 3.

    In fact, the fly ash emitted by a power plant - a by-product from burning coal for electricity - carries into the surrounding environment 100 times more radiation than a nuclear power plant producing the same amount of energy.

    The perils of climate change are well known, but rising sea levels could also alter human evolution, scientists have claimed. Rising sea levels could force communities to live in underwater or semi-aquatic towns which could change out physiology. Dr Matthew Skinner a paleoanthropologist from the University of Kent, claims that humans could evolve to have webbed hands and feet and less body hair so they could move quickly through the water. Our eyes would even become more like cats, so we could see in the murky gloom of seas and rivers and our lungs would shrink as we became used...

    Quack! Quack! Be advised that the article you are about to read did not appear in The Onion. However, it is completely understandable if that is what you think because the story, which appeared in the U.K. Telegraph, takes Global Warming Alarmism to such an extreme that it has passed from the absolutely absurd into the completely hilarious. Just how laughable is the article? So funny that The Telegraph science editor, Sarah Knapton seriously quotes a (quack?) scientist proposing that the rise of sea levels could cause humans to evolve webbed hands and feet: The perils of climate change are...

    Humanity's burning of fossil fuels is postponing the next global ice age for at least 100,000 years, according to new research that has discovered the tipping point which plunges the planet into deep freezes. Showing that human activity, via climate change, can alter global processes like ice ages is compelling evidence that the planet has entered a new geological epoch, dubbed the Anthropocene, according to the scientists. Other recent research listed evidence from plastic pollution to the mass extinction of wildlife to show that the Earth has entered the Anthropocene. The new research also shows that a major ice age...

    OSLO (Reuters) - Global warming is likely to disrupt a natural cycle of ice ages and contribute to delaying the onset of the next big freeze until about 100,000 years from now, scientists said on Wednesday. In the past million years, the world has had about 10 ice ages before swinging back to warmer conditions like the present. In the last ice age that ended 12,000 years ago, ice sheets blanketed what is now Canada, northern Europe and Siberia. In a new explanation for the long-lasting plunges in global temperatures that cause ice ages, scientists pointed to a combination of...

    Humans may evolve bizarre features such as webbed feet and eyes like cats in response to changing environments, a scientist claims today. Experts calculated how our physical appearance could change under a number of scenarios, including a 'water world' if melting ice caps cause rising sea levels. They also considered what would happen in a second ice age which could be triggered by an asteroid strike, and if humans colonised other planets. Dr Matthew Skinner, a paleoanthropologist at the University of Kent, examined the three scenarios and worked with artist Quentin Devine to help visualise how humans could look in...

    Though climate alarmists never tire of demonizing greenhouse gases and "fossil" fuels, hell has no fury equal to the venom they reserve for those maligned as "climate deniers." "This is treason, and we need to start treating them as traitors," spat environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. at the 2007 Live Earth Concert at New Jersey's Giants Stadium. NASA's James Hansen testified before a congressional committee in 2008 that "CEO's of fossil energy companies ... should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature." A 2009 Talking Points Memo article reached bloodthirsty pitch by asking, "At what point do we...

    The Keystone XL saga has taken a new twist in the New Year. On Jan. 6, TransCanada (the company that would have built and operated the Alberta to Texas pipeline) launched two lawsuits over President Obama's November rejection of the pipeline. One of the lawsuits will challenge the president's constitutional authority to grant permits when Congress has already acted, as it did in early 2015 when a bipartisan bill was passed approving the construction of the pipeline. The second lawsuit seeks damages of more than US$15 billion by issuing a claim under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade...
