  • Obama Warns: Manhattan Will Be ‘Underwater’ If We Don’t Act On Climate Change

    President Barack Obama insists that Americans have to take climate change seriously, or else a key part of one the world’s greatest cities could end up underwater. “When scientists tell us that the planet is getting warmer and we need to do something about it, the majority of people think that’s a good idea, let’s do something about that, because we don’t want Manhattan to be underwater,” Obama said during a fundraiser in New York City. Obama observed that people are frustrated by the current presidential election campaign. “The bad news is that our politics has been a little screwed...

    PARIS - Before the applause had even settled in the suburban convention center where the Paris Agreement was adopted by consensus on Saturday night, world leaders warned that momentum for the historic accord must not be allowed to dissipate. "Today, we celebrate,: said Miguel Arias Cañete, the European Union's energy commissioner and top climate negotiator. "Tomorrow, we have to act." With nearly every nation on earth having now pledged to gradually reduce emissions of the heat-trapping gases that are warming the planet - a universal commitment that had eluded negotiators and activists since the first Earth Day summit meeting, in...

    Is it now time to invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment? Has our president officially lost his ability to discharge the powers and duties of his office? Anyone who listened to President Obama speak to reporters in Paris on Tuesday would reasonably conclude it is high time to start drawing up the papers to transmit to Congress for his removal. If you are one of the millions and millions of literate Americans out there who have simply tuned this president out the past three or four years, that is certainly understandable. But if you tuned in to the long,...

    This week, France's most famous weatherman was fired for being a climate change skeptic. State-run TV France Télévisions told the media that their top meteorologist, who was suddenly absent from the nightly weather bulletins, was "on holiday." Philippe Verdier was France 2's "Monsieur Météo," according to The Local, and his weather broadcast reached a viewing audience of 5 million. That is until he released a book detailing his repulsion to climate change hysteria. In his book, Climat Investigation, Verdier takes on climatologists and politicians who are actively plotting to convince the world that the end is near unless all nations...

She didn't know being a global warming zealot requires knowledge of math. If the science of climate change was "settled," you'd think one of the generals in the war on global warming would have memorized the numbers that point to our planetary doom from a menace the administration says is a greater threat than terrorism. But McCarthy was asked some pretty simple questions Wednesday at a Senate hearing Wednesday on her request for $8.6 billion to help fight the...

Gov. Jerry Brown, who leads the state that hosted Solyndra, embraces bird-chopping wind turbines and builds crispy critter-producing solar panel farms, is a leading advocate of renewable energy and environmental protection. As pollution from coal-fired plants and industries in China wafted across the Pacific, he took a deep breath at his fourth inauguration as the state's chief executive and doubled down on green energy's failed promise by tasking California to fight...

    The new Congress must take whatever action it can to reverse and stop the harm that it represents; people’s jobs and lives depend on it. The intense cold that many Americans are encountering arrives more than a month before the official start of winter on December 2l. To discuss this, we need to keep in mind that weather is what is occurring now. Climate is measured over longer periods, the minimum of which is thirty years and, beyond that, centuries. We are colder these days because the Earth has been in a cooling cycle for 19 years and that cycle...

    With records dating back to 1880, the global temperature across the world's land and ocean surfaces for September 2014 was 0.72°C (1.30°F) higher than the 20th century average of 15.0°C (59.0°F), marking the warmest September in the 135-year period of record. The warmth was fairly evenly distributed across the hemispheres, with both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres observing the second highest September temperatures on record. The record highest September temperature in the Northern Hemisphere (beginning of meteorological fall season) occurred in 2005, while the highest September temperature in the Southern Hemisphere (beginning of meteorological spring season) occurred in 1997.

So are polar bears about to drown or fly off into space? To the list of things caused by global warming, including rising seas, fiercer and more frequent storms, forest fires and widespread disease, we can now add a weakening of gravity due to melting ice.

    Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region's famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It's already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas — and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world's oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid — all highly unusual for the Gulf — are turning up in fishermen's nets. The Gulf of Maine's warming reflects broader...

It's not over, though, and the science is not settled as true science never is.

All three show things are seriously amiss – although not necessarily with the climate itself. The final installment, to be published in September will further underline the need to reform the IPCC. The IPCC has three working groups, each producing its own report. Working Group I, focusing on climate change itself, released its findings last September. Compared to the previous report, of 2007,...

While only the first phase of regulation takes effect on Sunday, the administration is on notice that if it moves too far and too fast in trying to curtail the ubiquitous gases that are heating the planet it risks a Congressional backlash that could set back the effort for years.

    The rate at which global temperatures are rising has slowed in the past decade, scientists said today. In a report published today, the Met Office said the slow in the rate of warming was down to a combination of natural variation in the weather and pollution. Scientists say one of the major factors is the rise in heavy industry and pollutant 'aerosols', particularly in Asia. An upsurge in industrial emissions such as sulphur which are being pumped into the atmosphere reflects sunlight and could lead to a cooling effect. Changes in the amount of water vapour in the stratosphere may...

    PENNY Wong was frantically trying to break a deadlock between rich and poor nations after the Copenhagen summit neared collapse after a second walkout by delegates. The Australian Climate Change Minister and an unnamed co-chair from the developing nations' forum, known as the G77, were trying to mend fences on the relative size of emissions cuts offered to poorer countries and how they could be verified internationally. It is one of three major areas of disagreement. The others are the level of emission reduction pledges by developed countries, and how much money will be provided for poor countries to reduce...

    Former Vice President Al Gore made a startling announcement at the UN Climate Conference today: New computer modeling suggests the Arctic Ocean may be nearly ice-free in the summertime as early as 2014, Al Gore said Monday at the U.N. climate conference. This new projection, following several years of dramatic retreat by polar sea ice, suggests that the ice cap may nearly vanish in the summer much sooner than the year 2030, as was forecast by a U.S. government agency eight months ago. "It is hard to capture the astonishment that the experts in the science of ice felt when...

    PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad — The leaders of Britain and France gave their backing Friday to a global fund that would provide billions of dollars to poor countries to help them reduce the output of greenhouse gases linked to climate change.

Sarkozy told reporters at a Commonwealth heads of government meeting in Trinidad that the fund should provide $10 billion annually for the next three years to...

    For those of us “skeptics” and “deniers” who have been jumping up and down, pointing at the Sun, and saying, “See, it’s the Sun that determines how warm or cool the Earth is. See it? Up there in the sky?” The truth about some of the scientists behind the global warming hoax has finally arrived. The hoax has its roots in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an instrument of the United Nations Environmental Program, for whom global warming was the open sesame to achieving a one-world-government by scaring nations into signing a treaty that would control their use...

    US President Barack Obama on Friday hit out at naysayers he blamed for peddling "cynical" claims that global warming is a myth to derail a landmark climate change bill in Congress. Obama warned that the closer the Senate came to passing legislation which has already cleared the House of Representatives, the more opponents would resort to underhand tactics. "The naysayers, the folks who would pretend that this is not an issue, they are being marginalized," Obama warned in a speech at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "But I think it's important to understand that the closer we get, the harder...

The Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations will hold their 15th conference on climate change through December 7-18th. At the conference, globalists like Obama will sign the ‘Copenhagen Climate Change Treaty’ that will replace the Kyoto treaty that is set to expire in 2012.
