    Professor Murry Salby, chair of climate at Macquarie University, has unleashed on global warming alarmism in a lecture this week to the Sydney Institute. Salby has worked at leading research institutions, including the US National Center for Atmospheric Research, Princeton University, and the University of Colorado, and is the author of Fundamentals of Atmospheric Physics, and Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate, due out in 2011. Salby’s argument is that the usual evidence given for the rise in CO2 being man-made is mistaken. (podcast of lecture available)

    ... All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn’t like the subject of a certain article, he removed it — more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred — over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to...

    Scientists have been warning us about the devastating impact global warming could have if human-made greenhouse gas emissions are not reduced, and many believe that these impacts are being felt now. Because of this sense of urgency to reverse global warming, pressure has been mounting on the three branches of government at state and national levels to take action to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, corporations that emit greenhouse gases, ranging from energy companies to toymakers, are becoming increasingly exposed to regulatory orders and lawsuits for which they will tender claims to their insurers. Enter an era of...
  • Climate change clues in sky (super-cooled water found at -30 C scraps last week's model!)

    EUREKA, Nunavut Territory -- Scientists are peering into the clouds near the top of the world, trying to solve a mystery and learn something new about global warming. The mystery is the droplets of water in the clouds. With the North Pole just 685 miles away, they should be frozen, yet more of them are liquid than anyone expected. So the scientists working out of a converted blue cargo container are trying to determine whether the clouds are one of the causes - or effects - of Earth's warming atmosphere. "Much to our surprise, we found that Arctic clouds have...
  • Human of Britain Frozen Out at Least Seven Times in 700,000 years (Global LukeWarming News)

    Eight times humans came to try to live in Britain and on at least seven occasions they failed - beaten back by freezing conditions. Scientists think they can now write a reasonably comprehensive history of the occupation of these isles. It stretches from 700,000 years ago and the first known settlers at Pakefield in Suffolk, through to the most recent incomers just 12,000 years or so ago. The evidence comes from the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain Project.... Scientists now think there were seven gaps in the occupation story - times when there was probably no human settlement of any...

    Kyoto targets may be met later, Martin says By OLIVER MOORE Globe and Mail Update Prime Minister Paul Martin said Wednesday that Canada is just one of many countries that will not hit its Kyoto targets, arguing that there are provisions in the agreement that allow for compliance over a longer period. With less than a month before the Kyoto Protocol — an international agreement designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions — goes into effect, the caucus appears split over whether Canada can meet its commitments. When he weighed in on the debate at a Tokyo press conference, Mr. Martin...
