    NEW YORK (AP) -- New research suggests that global warming increases the chances of heat waves in Texas, like the one that hit the state last year. The government also confirmed Tuesday that 2011 was among the 15 warmest years on record.

    Americans are the the least likely to suffer from "green guilt" about their environmental impact, despite trailing the rest of the world in sustainable behavior, according to a new National Geographic survey. This year's Greendex report, conducted by the National Geographic Society and the research consultancy GlobeScan, also found that Americans are the most confident that their individual actions can help the environment. (National Geographic News is a division of the Society.) (How green are you? Find out with the Greendex calculator.) "There's a disconnect there, and we hope the Greendex helps shed light on it," said Eric Whan, GlobeScan's...

    Earlier today, certain Congressional Democrats let it be known that their party would be ready and willing to take the country over the coming fiscal cliff if Republicans don’t agree to President Obama’s proposal to hike taxes on the country’s wealthiest earners (but remember: Republicans are ones refusing to cooperate and causing all of this dat gum partisan gridlock!). A top Senate Democrat bluntly warned Monday that her party is prepared to let all the Bush-era tax cuts expire and automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs take place at the beginning of next year unless Republicans agree to...

    Western Free Press via You Tube ^ | May 28, 2012 | Brad Zinn
    Brad Zinn of Western Free Press interviews Lord Christopher Monckton just before his presentation to the Surprise Tea Party, Sun City, AZ, May 28, 2012. The presentation will be posted to YouTube separately (check back here for the link). Lord Monckton is a leading skeptic and compelling speaker on the worldwide "global warming" political movement, which is based on what the warmists call "science". Monckton's work shows how this Leftist-supported movement has in fact perverted the very essence of the scientific process itself in order to achieve the Left's true objective: wholly new and unprecedented levels of permanent power over...
  • IPCC Admits Its Past Reports Were Junk

    American Thinker ^ | July 16, 2012 | By Joseph L. Bast
    On June 27, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a statement saying it had "complete[d] the process of implementation of a set of recommendations issued in August 2010 by the InterAcademy Council (IAC), the group created by the world's science academies to provide advice to international bodies." Hidden behind this seemingly routine update on bureaucratic processes is an astonishing and entirely unreported story. The IPCC is the world's most prominent source of alarmist predictions and claims about man-made global warming. Its four reports (a fifth report is scheduled for release in various parts in 2013 and 2014) are...
  • Climate change threatens Tibetan antelopes deliveries

    China Daily ^ | July 13, 2012
    XINING - Every summer, Tibetan antelopes in China's remote northwest follow a certain pattern of migration that is key to the endangered species' survival. Normally, around 30,000 pregnant gazelles migrate, some travel for thousands of miles, in June and July to the heart of Hoh Xil nature reserve on the eastern edge of Qinghai-Tibetan plateau to deliver calves. Scientists have not been able to explain why the gazelles favor this place to give birth. But there are worrying signs that this pattern might change before they even have another calf -- due to climate change. In recent months, melting glaciers...

This message, along with many others, is in her book Septic's Handbook, which has hit 200,000 copies. Jo is trying to get people to understand there's a lot more to widely held popular beliefs; thus, we all need to question...

    A massive landslide sent tons of rock and debris tumbling more than five miles down a glacier in Alaska, the National Park Service reported in an event that could be yet another sign of a warming world. ocated in a remote area of Glacier Bay National Park, the slide was so big it registered on earthquake monitors as a magnitude 3.4 event. Officials noticed the monitor blip on June 11 but it wasn't until July 2 that a pilot passing over the site took photos that showed just how large it was, Glacier Bay National Park announced on its Facebook...

    Heat wave, fires have climate change activists on offensive By Ben Geman - 07/06/12 06:00 AM ET Record-breaking heat across the U.S. and catastrophic wildfires in Colorado are giving environmentalists a rare opening to regain the political offensive on climate change. While scientists caution against chalking up specific weather events to climate change, they say generally that heat waves, wildfires and other extreme weather is expected with increasing frequency and intensity in a warming world. Skeptics of climate change often point to winter blizzards as evidence that the planet is not warming; now those who say climate change is a...

    Anthony Watts, Lucia Liljegren , and Michael Tobis have all done a good job blogging about Jeff Masters’ egregious math error. His error was that he claimed that a run of high US temperatures had only a chance of 1 in 1.6 million of being a natural occurrence. Here’s his claim: U.S. heat over the past 13 months: a one in 1.6 million eventEach of the 13 months from June 2011 through June 2012 ranked among the warmest third of their historical distribution for the first time in the 1895 – present record.

    Climate: While CBS touts a "groundbreaking" government report linking extreme weather and climate change, German researchers find 2,000 years of cooling and warmer temps in medieval times and the Roman era. This summer's heat wave has given the global warmongers new hope in conning the hot and the restless into believing the whole thing is due to that SUV parked in your driveway and that coal-fired plant down the street. Not so fast, say German researchers who documented a two millennia cooling trend. Both the Roman legions and Crusaders marched in warmer climes. On Wednesday's CBS This Morning, CBS News...

  • Cap and trade, the next tool to separate you from your money

    07/12/2012 10:20:19 AM PDT · by Mark Landsbaum · 3 replies
    We got a phone call this morning from an Orange County businessman who had attended a conference this week in which a university professor lauded the benefits of cap and trade. Obviously, this prof doesn’t work in an industry that will have to directly assume the burden of this added tax, disguised as a fee. But our caller does. Our caller and the prof do share this in common – their cost of living as consumers will go up as California state government ratchets up its taxes through cap and trade auctions, ostensible to rid us of horrid CO2 emissions,...

    Today, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a prominent conservative think tank, hosted a secret, four-and-a-half hour meeting of pols, wonks, and activists, including several self-identified ’progressives,’ to develop a PR/legislative strategy to promote and enact a carbon tax. This was the fifth such meeting to advance the ”Price Carbon Campaign/Lame Duck Initiative: A Carbon Pollution Tax in Fiscal and Tax Reform.” An annoted copy of the meeting agenda appears at the bottom of this post.

An accounting of the rain that fell in the catchment basin (red box) of Thailand's Chao Phraya river last year (blues and purple are heavier rains) shows that huge losses from floods were likely the result of extensive building in the floodplain, not the amount of rain that fell.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science and its promotion involves selection of only material that supports the hypothesis that human CO2 is causing warming and latterly climate change. It is used in everything from tree ring samples chosen to create the hockey stick, to omission of the Milankovitch Effect, and the role of cosmic rays in the formation of low cloud from IPCC computer models.There’s a similar pattern of selective reporting about weather events. People are inundated with reports giving the impression that what is happening is worse then ever before, unusual and therefore due to human activities....

    Rings in fossilised pine trees have proven that the world was much warmer than previously thought - and the earth has been slowly COOLING for 2,000 years. Measurements stretching back to 138BC prove that the Earth is slowly cooling due to changes in the distance between the Earth and the sun. The finding may force scientists to rethink current theories of the impact of global warming.

Over that time, the world has been getting cooler - and previous...
