  • Polar bears need lots of seal snacks — and a melting Arctic makes it hard to eat enough

    02/01/2018 1:57:31 PM PST · by rktman · 60 replies ^ | 2/1/2018 | Alessandra Potenza
    In the spring, during their prime hunting season, polar bears need an insanely large amount of food to stay healthy — over 12,000 kilocalories a day, or roughly 6,000 times what humans need, according to new research. That’s a lot more than what scientists previously thought these predators needed to stay healthy. And that means that, as Arctic ice keeps melting because of rising temperatures, polar bears may be in more trouble than we had anticipated. In April of 2014, 2015, and 2016, researchers tracked nine female polar bears living on the sea ice of the Beaufort Sea, off the...

He is deported to the international convict settlement on Kerguelen in the Southern Ocean.
  • Delingpole: Now 400 Scientific Papers in 2017 Say ‘Global Warming’ Is a Myth

    When I reported earlier this year on the 58 scientific papers published in 2017 that say global warming is a myth the greenies’ heads exploded. Since then, that figure has risen to 400 scientific papers. Can you imagine the misery and consternation and horror this is going to cause in the corrupt, rancid, rent-seeking world of the Climate Industrial Complex? I can. It will look something like this. Just to be clear, so the greenies can’t bleat about being misrepresented, here is what these various papers say:

    Al Gore recently had a telling altercation with a journalist. The Spectator’s Ross Clark wanted to ask him about Miami sea-level rises suggested in the new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel.” The reporter started to explain that he had consulted Florida International University sea-level-rise expert Shimon Wdowinski. Gore’s response: “Never heard of him — is he a denier?” Then he asked the journalist, “Are you a denier?” When Clark responded that he was sure climate change is a problem but didn’t know how big, Gore declared, “You are a denier.” I was recently on the receiving end of a similar rebuff...

    Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been doing the leftist media interview circuit recently, pressing his peculiar thesis that professional (i.e., paid) scientists are a superior class of humans whose conclusions are intrinsically beyond reproach and must therefore be accepted blindly by unscientific lunks like you. In each of these interviews, a non-climate scientist asks a series of predetermined questions designed to elicit rehearsed responses from the non-climate scientist Tyson, the upshot of which is that (a) people who question man-made global warming are anti-scientific fools driven by irrational agendas; (b) scientific consensus is not the product of the social and...

    Scott Pruitt and Steven Koonin have climate scientist-activists and their media promoters ranting and sputtering in an epic meltdown. Pruitt is, of course, President Trump’s outspoken administrator in charge of the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Dr. Koonin, a physicist and professor at New York University, was undersecretary of the Energy Department in the Obama administration. Pruitt and Koonin, along with Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, and an impressive lineup of distinguished scientists have stirred the proverbial hornets’ nest by proposing (of all things!) — a scientific debate. Climate alarmists say this is “dangerous,” even “un-American.” And why...

    On June 2, 2017, in a Letter regarding US withdrawal from Paris climate agreement addressed to the MIT community, Professor Rafael Reif, president of MIT, criticized President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris Climate Accords. In this refutation, we propose to clarify the scientific understanding of the Earth’s climate and to dispel the expensively fostered popular delusion that man-made global warming will be dangerous and that, therefore, the Paris Agreement would be beneficial. Professor Reif wrote, “Yesterday, the White House took the position that the Paris climate agreement – a landmark effort to combat global warming by reducing greenhouse gas...
  • More bad news for Warmists: NASA finds no retreat of polar ice

    The notion that the polar ice caps would melt and flood coastal cities was always the best marketing tool for the global warming fraud. After all, some people prefer warm weather, and no part of the United States in in the tropics, where heat per se would be the most bothersome. Until humans develop gills, flooded cities would be a write-off. But, the ice caps just didn’t get the message, and, as we reported yesterday, the ice caps are just as thick as they were decades ago. Those poor polar bears stranded on small pieces of ice will be just...

    “Climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth" Don’t you hate being called a ‘denier?” Me neither. In fact, I view this appellation as an affirmation of my own independent scepticism, a divergent path from that taken by the herd. In today’s” legacy media” every weather phenomenon is seen as an indication of climate change, or global warming, as it was once called until facts rendered that term inoperative. Recently I noticed a story on the Weather Network about an enormous crack in Greenland’s Peterman glacier seen by a NASA satellite, possibly caused by wait for it… warmer ocean waters. In...
  • Climate experts: Global warming doubts are 'real science'

    A number of Ph.Ds have written a book chapter asserting that doubts about the theory of human-caused global warming should be considered “real science.” You know, the idea of basing hypotheses on documented evidence rather than a political agenda. But the National Science Teachers Association wants nothing to do with such an approach. Its executive director, David Evans, has written a letter to members insisting they must teach the agendas of the National Wildlife Federation, the North American Association for Environmental Education, the Campaign for Environmental Literacy, the Center for Climate Change Communication and other activist groups. What they must...

    Nothing better illustrates the stupidity and evil intent of green philosophy than their promotion of a mythical guestimate called the "social cost of carbon" (SCC). They use this bureaucratic weapon to demonize the fabulous fossil fuels that deliver food, heat, light, and power to the modern world. Let's consider life before coal, oil, and gas were harnessed. There was no steel, and there were no cars, tractors, trucks, trains, planes, or electric power. It was a world of sulkies, sailing boats, and sun-dried food. Hunters used bows and spears. Farmers used oxen and wooden ploughs and threshed grain with wooden...
  • Andrea Mitchell Fears Trump ‘Hit List’ Against Climate Change Activists in Government

    On her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell advanced liberal fears that Donald Trump was compiling a “hit list” of Energy Department officials who pushed Obama administration climate change policy by sending around a “very controversial questionnaire” about the issue. Speaking to White House correspondent Kristen Welker, Mitchell fretted: “There was a very controversial questionnaire that their energy transition team sent out to everyone in the Energy Department at the high levels asking for the names of anyone who helped negotiate the Paris climate change accord....It was viewed by a lot of people at Energy...

    I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised at this. If I’m watching a science-fiction show, the first thing I should suspect is them peddling the greatest science-fiction of them all: global warming. Perhaps the CW’s Supergirl thinks I’ll swallow whatever they’re saying better than believing a man (or woman) can fly, but climate change remains just as nonsensical as if it were coming from Bill Nye the (fake) Science Guy. In Monday’s episode “Changing,” Dr. Rudy Jones (William Mapother) is a climate change scientist who insists that “our planet is being destroyed. And not by any invader or army. By...

    The latest survey conducted by Washington-based Pew Research Center shows only 27 percent of Americans think that “almost all” climate scientists hold human behavior responsible for climate change, and only 48 percent think global climate change is “due to human activity.” This clashes with the frequent media assertion that Americans readily trust the so-called overwhelming “consensus” on climate change. The survey also found that far-left Democrats are much more likely to put their faith in climate scientists, while Republicans remain more skeptical. The survey noted that those skeptical of man’s influence on global warming aren’t science illiterate, a favorite talking...

    Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse recently told people gathered in New York City that global warming “denial” hurts U.S. soldiers in the field and that the “main problem” with the military is its reluctance to join the climate crusade. “The problem has been that the uniformed military has been reluctant to put its voice into – or its image into this fight,” Whitehouse said, according to a YouTube video posted Thursday.

    An Australian university recently censured marine scientist Paul Ridd for “failing to act in a collegial way and in the academic spirit of the institution,” because he questioned popular claims among environmentalists about coral reefs and global warming. What was Ridd’s crime? He found out two of the world’s leading organizations studying coral reefs were using misleading photographs to make the case that global warming was causing a mass reef die-off. Ridd wasn’t rewarded for checking the facts and blowing the whistle on misleading science. Instead, James Cook University censured Ridd and threatened to fire him for questioning global warming...

    Building a green utopia would be so much easier if people would just shut up, stop asking questions and behave like good subjects. Don’t they know the science of climate change is settled? The debate is over. There never was one. Oh, goodness. Big Oil. The fracking people. Conservatives. Why should anyone listen to them?
