    When Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull arrives in Washington this week for consultations with President Donald Trump, he wont be traveling solo. Turnbull is bringing the most senior Australian political and business delegation ever to visit the United States in a trip aimed at building stronger relationships with Americas governors. While hell talk trade and security concerns with Trump, Turnbull will spend the weekend courting U.S. governors at their annual gathering. Turnbull, a Goldman Sachs executive-turned prime minister, is the latest world leader to extend outreach to U.S. governors and big-city mayors in the age of Trumps America First policies....

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data. This time, that data concerns the recent record-breaking cold across the northeastern U.S. which NOAA is trying to erase from history. If you believe NOAA’s charts, there was nothing particularly unusual about this winter’s cold weather which caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.Here is NOAA’s January 2018 chart for Northeast U.S. – an area which includes New England along with NY, PA, NJ, DE and MD.

    San Jose Mercury-News ^ | February 15, 2018 | By EMILY DERUY
    As part of a sweeping new climate plan to make San Jose more environmentally friendly, the city is angling to become one of the first in the U.S. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to meet the levels outlined in the ambitious Paris Agreement. The city will launch San Jose Clean Energy - an alternative to PG&E known as a community-choice energy program - later this year. On Thursday, Mayor Sam Liccardo said the city will make 100 percent emission-free electricity available to everyone who participates in the program. By 2030, Liccardo said, the city plans to reduce carbon emissions from...

    The Trump administration's budget request for fiscal year 2019 calls for work on a major NASA space observatory and five Earth-science missions to be canceled. NASA's Office of Education would also be terminated. The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST), which would have used an existing spy satellite retired from the National Reconnaissance Office, would no longer receive funding. According to the White House's 2019 budget request, released today (Feb. 12), WFIRST would have required a significant funding increase. Instead, the budget proposal requests that the funding go to smaller astrophysics missions. The Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) satellite;...

As the driver, Sam Jessup, and a documentary filmmaker, Deia Schlosberg, recorded events from the back seat.

    First they tried suing the utility companies. Then they tried suing the automakers. They even tried suing oil companies on behalf of an Alaskan village in danger of being inundated by oil-fueled rising sea levels. Each approach ended when courts said that the judiciary branch wasnt the right place to address human-induced global warming, a problem so big it requires a coordinated international response that only legislators can implement. Now private plaintiff lawyers and their allies in government are trying a new strategy: Suing under state-law theories of public nuisance. San Francisco and several other California cities and counties have...
  • Global warming could cause key culinary crops to release seeds prematurely

    Science Daily ^ | February 12, 2018
    Climate change is threatening crop yields worldwide, yet little is known about how global warming will confuse normal plant physiology. Researchers in the UK now show that higher temperatures accelerate seed dispersal in crop species belonging to the cabbage and mustard plant family, limiting reproductive success, and this effect is mediated by a gene called INDEHISCENT. The findings appear February 12 in the journal Molecular Plant. "In many crops, such as oilseed rape, premature seed dispersal is one of the major causes of crop loss. In the context of climate change, this could become increasingly severe," says co-senior author Vinod...

    Global warming has the power to curtail one of nature's most powerful phenomena, cutting the chance of lightning strikes in the future. Increasing greenhouse gases could have a significant effect on storm clouds, experts say. Under worst case climate change scenarios temperatures worldwide could increase by 5C (9F) by 2100. Using a new method, researchers calculate that the likely incidence of lightning flashes from storm clouds will drop by 15 per cent under these conditions. Dr Declan Finney of the University of Leeds, who was part of the research, told MailOnline: 'In previous studies of the impact of climate change...

    Former Cailfornia governor Arnold Schwarzenegger made a rare return to Sacramento last Thursday and declared that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt needed to be fired. The Los Angeles Times reported that it was Schwarzeneggers second dig at Pruitt in less than a week (original links): He is without any doubt the wrong person at that place, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said. He does not represent the people. He only represents the special interests. He should be removed immediately. Schwarzenegger was in Sacramento to meet with seven state Assembly Republicans who support environmental protection policies. Last month, the former...

Thats how old the lefts doomsday rhetoric is; the actual causes come and go pollution, acid rain, global cooling, global warming, generic climate change, whatever. The end result is that the world will soon come to end unless we elect socialist politicians who pretend to be a cross between scientists, mystical clerics and slide rule technocrats.

    The Open Championship celebrated its 146th edition last summer at Royal Birkdale. The rotation of 10 different courses has been mostly the same for the last few decades, but a recent report noted that the event might not make it 146 more tournaments with the current venues. According to the BBC, which reviewed a report by the Climate Coalition, various courses on the coasts of the UK are in peril because of climate change and a rising North Sea. To its credit, the R&A is taking this future seriously. "It [climate change] is certainly becoming a factor" Steve Isaac, Director...

    A Princeton physicist has shared an inconvenient truth of his own--climate change models are based on an alternate reality. "And I know they don't work," Princeton University physicist William Happer says in a video produced by Prager U. "They haven't worked in the past." "They don't work now. And it's hard to imagine when, if ever, theyll work in the foreseeable future." "In the video, Happer argues that even supercomputers used to predict the weather and forecast future global warming aren't strong enough to capture the complexity of Earth's atmosphere, including cloud cover and natural ocean cycles," Michael Batasch, who...

    In 1987, countries of the world agreed to the Montreal Protocol, a treaty designed to phase out chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, responsible for destroying ozone in the stratosphere. The protocol has worked as intended in reducing these substances, and early healing of the ozone hole over Antarctica has been subsequently hailed by scientists. But the study by Ball and his colleagues focused instead on the lower latitudes where the vast majority of humans live. There, the scientists found a relatively small but hard-to-explain decline of ozone in the lower part of the stratosphere, the layer of the atmosphere that extends from...

    A new Columbia Business School study is out with the latest bizarre claim about man-made global warming it could alter peoples personalities. As climate change continues across the world, we may also observe concomitant changes in human personality, reads the study, published in the journal Nature on Tuesday. Its only the latest in a slew of studies on the potential psychological effects of future warming, and its not even the most bizarre. For example, recent studies have claimed worry about global warming is making people depressed. Those worried about man-made warming reported feelings of loneliness and lethargy, Reuters reported...

    A free-market think tank is asking the Securities and Exchange Commission for an investigation into possible bond fraud by local and municipal governments that claim they will be harmed by climate change. The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) says a number of municipalities, most of them in California, are suing oil and gas companies for future damages because of climate change, and in doing so are often explicit in their forecasts of predicted sea-level rise and monetary damages. However, when those same cities sell bonds to investors, they're being far more generic in their claims of future catastrophe. "In their suits...

    SEATTLE When President Trump was candidate Trump, he called climate change a hoax. Since taking the Oval Office, hes said very little about greenhouse gasses and their impact on the planet. But he did issue a statement that he plans to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to reduce emissions as a way to stop global warming. But West Coast states are driving in the opposite direction, with designs of erecting a green wall built on taxing carbon. This is both an economic benefit for the state of Washington and a job creator, said...
