  • Will.i.am Touts Climate Change, Then Flies in Hip.Hop.Copter

    Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.i.am is the typical Hollywood-esque global warming alarmist. He's also the typical hypocrite who touts the apocalyptic effects of climate change, and then rides around in his helicopter -- or, technically, his "hip.hop.copter." Mr. Will.i.am attended a climate change conference at Oxford University before lifting off to carry the Olympic torch on the same day. On May 21, the American musician, who is also a coach on the British version of the singing competition television show “The Voice,” tweeted pictures of his helicopter as he was leaving Oxford and headed to Taunton, where he would help carry a...

    SHOPS and restaurants could face fines up to $1.1 million if waiters or sales staff wrongly blame the carbon tax for price rises or exaggerate the impact. And households are being warned to watch out for telephone scammers offering to deposit carbon tax compensation into their bank accounts. The prices watchdog, the ACCC, will today launch its countdown to the July 1 carbon tax with a special focus on helping small businesses understand their obligations and consumers to be vigilant for false claims. It is releasing internet videos to help business, a 16-page guide and has set up a dedicated...

    What's green and blue and grabby all over? President Obama's new pressure campaign for Congress to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). The fight over LOST goes back three decades, when it was first rejected by President Ronald Reagan. He warned that "no national interest of the United States could justify handing sovereign control of two-thirds of the Earth's surface over to the Third World." According to top Reagan officials William Clark and Ed Meese, their boss believed the "central, and abiding, defect" was "its effort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states --...

    The Environmental Protection Agency held 12 hours of stacked hearings in Washington, D.C. and Chicago on Thursday in favor of a regulation that analysts have concluded would kill the building of new conventional coal plants in the U.S. Among the participants scheduled to testify in consecutive five minute blocks throughout the day were multiple representatives from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and environmental activists from the Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Greenpeace. The proposed rule, reported by The Washington Post in March, limits the amount of greenhouse gases emitted...

    Here is a five minute long special report on a power source for the 21st Century; one that the “greens”, climate change alarmists and global warming skeptics might all agree on (video link below). And here is my blog about that power source. JOHN COLEMAN’S BLOG May 21, 2012 THORIUM will power the world. That is the bumper sticker of the future. The ugly debate about energy has gone on and on. It is costing us billions of dollars. It is beginning to cripple our nation. I have been looking for a source of abundant, cheap electric power that short...

    Climategate, the 2009 exposure of misconduct at the University of East Anglia, was a terrible blow to the reputation of climatology, and indeed to that of British and American science. Although that story hasn’t been in the news in recent months, new evidence of similar scientific wrongdoing continues to emerge, with a new scandal hitting the climate blogosphere just a few days ago.And central to the newest story is one of the Climategate scientists: Keith Briffa, an expert in reconstructing historical temperature records from tree rings. More particularly, the recent scandal involves a tree-ring record Briffa prepared for a...

    Frank Lansner’s first graph surprised me. It’s well known and often quoted that sea levels have been rising by 2-3mm a year every year for the last 20 years. But it’s not well known that the original raw satellite data doesn’t show that at all.What astonished me was the sea levels first recorded by the Topex Poseidon satellite array showed virtually no rise at all from 1993-2001. Surely not, I thought. I asked sea-level expert Nils Axel-Morner, and he confirmed: “Yes, it is as bad as that.“ Now, given that Envisat (the European satellite) showed no rise from 2003-2011...

    It promised to be one of the glitziest evenings for ticket holders, with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Joan Collins in attendance. But now former US President Bill Clinton has received a backlash from 'angry' guests who were left disappointed after turning up to his fundraiser in London on Tuesday night. Attendees have now branded the bash the "worst party ever", claiming the venue smelt and it was too crowded with people. One guest complained to the Daily Telegraph that guests were left waiting outside while the A-list stars were first allowed inside, despite them paying up to Ł1,000...

    Human use of water contributes markedly to rising tides. Climate change, with its associated melting ice caps and shrinking glaciers, is the usual suspect when it comes to explaining rising sea levels. But a recent study now shows that human water use has a major impact on sea-level change that has been overlooked. During the latter half of the twentieth century, global sea level rose by about 1.8 millimetres per year, according to data from tide gauges. The combined contribution from heating of the oceans, which makes the water expand, along with melting of ice caps and glaciers, is estimated...

    Many thanks for the invitation and for giving me the opportunity to address this distinguished audience. I am not for the first time in Chicago. It is also not for the first time that I am attending a conference organized by the Heartland Institute. But it is for the first time I am with Heartland here in Chicago.Some of you know that I came to Chicago for the NATO summit. Yesterday and today I was supposed to speak about what to do in Afghanistan, how to keep NATO going in an era of overall indebtedness and budgetary cuts, and about...

    ATLANTA, Georgia, May 23, 2012 (IPS) - A coalition of advocacy groups is targeting corporate support for the right-wing Heartland Institute after the organisation took out a controversial billboard in Chicago comparing people who believe in global warming to a serial killer and mass murderer. On Tuesday, the group protested outside the Heartland Institute's Seventh International Conference on Climate Change, a conference for climate change deniers being held at the Hilton hotel in Chicago. Heartland's billboard featured a photograph of Ted Kaczinski, the mass murderer known as the Unabomber, with text, "I still believe in Global Warming. Do you?" Heartland...

    Ecosystems haven’t maxed out ability to absorb fossil fuel emissions Earth’s ecosystems keep soaking up more carbon as greenhouse gases accumulate in the atmosphere, new measurements find. The research contradicts several recent studies suggesting that “carbon sinks” have reached or passed their capacity. By looking at global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the new work calculates instead that total sinks have increased roughly in line with rising emissions. “The sinks have been more than able to keep up with emissions,” said Pieter Tans, an atmospheric scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo....

    I’m away, so this is a good time for Guest posts. Here Tony explains that we need lots of electricity even while we sleep. I didn’t realize our electricity needs were so high at night. The lowest power use each day is still as much as 60% of the peak. That’s the base load at 3am, and solar panels and wind farms just can’t provide it. We can burn the odd $500 billion building hundreds of solar plants, but even then, we would have to go “medieval” for about 8 hours each night. Candles anyone? — Jo Guest post by...

    Penn State panelists attack "deniers" Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush, Christopher Monckton, Fox News, and The Wall Street Journal.Penn State "climate ethics" professor Donald Brown accused global warming skeptics late last month of committing "new crimes against humanity." "We've lost 25 years," said Brown, referring to so-called global warming skeptics' efforts to delay and prevent government action on climate change. "I think we should encourage a conversation whether this is some sort of kind of new crime against humanity." "Its really evil stuff," continued Brown, speaking to a classroom of students on April 30. "It's nasty." Brown, the Associate Professor...

    A new paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters describes how the oceans have warmed only 0.09°C over the last 55 years, from 1955-2010. Don’t let the red line fool you, read on. Key Points A strong positive linear trend in exists in world ocean heat content since 1955One third of the observed warming occurs in the 700-2000 m layer of the oceanThe warming can only be explained by the increase in atmospheric GHGs That last bullet point makes me cringe a bit, because I seriously doubt the resolution of this study down to hundredths of degrees seeing the sort...

    Remember the fear of global warming is falling because skeptics are well organized and well funded by vested interests and, after all, the US government is only spending ten thousand times more than Heartland. How could they compete? The Congressional Research Service estimates that since 2008 the federal government has spent nearly $70 billion on “climate change activities.”Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe presented the new CRS report on the Senate Floor Thursday to make the point that the Obama administration has been focused on “green” defense projects to the detriment of the military.The Daily Caller Hello to all the fans...
