    Washington Post ^ | 3/15/2012 | By David Nakamura
    President Obama blasted his Republican critics Thursday for their resistance to investing in alternative energy sources, comparing their stance to the beliefs of those who thought that Columbus would sail off the edge of the world. In another in a series of speeches defending his energy policies, Obama touted his push for green energy growth — including wind and solar power, electric cars and biofuels — as a way to help wean the nation from a dependence on foreign oil. And he mocked his rivals for failing to embrace his ideas. “If some of these folks were around when Columbus...

    From Gleick's Huffington Post confession: Given the potential impact however, I attempted to confirm the accuracy of the information in this document. In an effort to do so, and in a serious lapse of my own and professional judgment and ethics, I solicited and received additional materials directly from the Heartland Institute under someone else's name. The materials the Heartland Institute sent to me confirmed many of the facts in the original document, including especially their 2012 fundraising strategy and budget. I forwarded, anonymously, the documents I had received to a set of journalists and experts working on climate issues....

    Peter H. Gleick, a water and climate analyst who has been studying aspects of global warming for more than two decades, in recent years became an aggressive critic of organizations and individuals casting doubt on the seriousness of greenhouse-driven climate change. He used blogs, congressional testimony, group letters and other means to make his case. Now, Gleick has admitted to an act that leaves his reputation in ruins and threatens to undercut the cause he spent so much time pursuing. His summary, just published on his blog at Huffington Post, speaks for itself. SNIP---- The Heartland Institute had already signaled...
  • A New Study Takes The Wind Out Of Wind Energy

    07/20/2011 11:45:40 AM PDT · by Hunton Peck · 41 replies · 1+ views ^ | 07.19.11 | Robert Bryce
    Reality has overtaken green hope. Facts are pesky things. And they're particularly pesky when it comes to the myths about the wind energy business. For years, it's been an article of faith among advocates of renewables that increased use of wind energy can provide a cost-effective method of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The reality: wind energy's carbon dioxide-cutting benefits are vastly overstated. Furthermore, if wind energy does help reduce carbon emissions, those reductions are too expensive to be used on any kind of scale. Those are the findings of an exhaustive new study, released today, by Bentek Energy, a Colorado-based...

    Canada's premiers and territorial leaders held their annual meeting in Moncton this week. The main agenda item was global warming. And so it was that on Thursday, the leaders paraded to the microphone and pronounced themselves committed to a greener world. But instead of offering practical plans, they served up hypocritical rhetoric designed for voters back home. The worst offenders were Ontario's Dalton McGuinty and B.C.'s Gordon Campbell. Throughout the summit, Mr. Mc-Guinty did his best to paint Alberta as Canada's climate bogeyman. While never identifying the province by name, the Ontario Premier repeatedly stated that the biggest emitters of...
  • Millions 'Wasted' Planting Trees That Reduce Water

    Millions 'wasted' planting trees that reduce water By Charles Clover, Environment Editor (Filed: 29/07/2005) Millions of pounds in overseas aid are wasted every year planting trees in dry countries in the belief that they help attract rainfall and act as storage for water, scientists said yesterday. In fact, forests usually increase evaporation and help to reduce the amount of water available for human consumption or growing crops, according to a four-year study. Research on water catchments on three continents says it is "a myth" that trees always increase the availability of water. Even the cloud forests of tropical Costa Rica...

    WorldNetDaily THE NEW WORLD DISORDER Putin adviser says Kyoto 'smoke screen' Treaty will create Soviet-style 'monster' threatening freedom Posted: November 20, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 An adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin warns the Kyoto protocol ratified by his country is a propaganda "smoke screen" that will create a "supranational bureaucratic monster" threatening human freedom, similar to the Soviet Union's. For most of the world, writes Andrei Illarionov in the Financial Times, the protocol, set to become an international treaty next year, is "bad news.""Like fascism and communism, Kyotoism is an attack on basic human freedoms behind...

    Editor's note: This is the second in a three-part series on oil by MarketWatch columnist Paul Erdman. See Part 1 HEALDSBURG, Calif. (CBS.MW) -- Before considering the effect of surging global demand for energy on the price of crude, I would like to discuss the potential structural change in the supply of oil. This change will have deep-seated implications beyond the cyclical supply/demand crisis we are experiencing at present. In 1956, M. King Hubbert, an American geophysicist working at the Shell Oil research laboratory in Houston, came up with a startling prediction: Oil production in the United States would peak...

    A biologist has confirmed the sighting of a real Michigan wolverine, about 200 years after the species was last seen in the state that uses the small but ferocious animal as its unofficial nickname. Coyote hunters spotted a wolverine near Ubly, about 90 miles north of Detroit. Michigan Department of Natural Resources wildlife biologist Arnie Karr saw the forest predator Tuesday and snapped pictures of the animal as it ran out of the woods and across a field. The wolverine, a member of the weasel family that grows to about 25 pounds but is ferocious enough to fight off bears...
