    Today, a group called the 10.10 project came out with a pro-environmental video which has gathered a LOT of negative publicity. The group has since issued the canonical retrenchment-couched-as-an-apology "to those who really deserve this, but who are clueless enough to have admitted their guilt by being offended, we are sorry you're stupid". But, uncharacteristically, the group has ONLY pulled the video from its own website, and is making no effort to scrub it from the web at large. (Which is probably a good thing, as the video has gone viral within twelve hours). What is the video? You can...
  • Osama bin Laden Concerned About Climate (Osama Channels Al Gore and Code Pink)

    "If governments spent only one per cent of what is spent on armies, they would change the face of the world for poor people." Osama bin Laden, October 1, 2010. OSAMA bin Laden believes climate change is more damaging than war. An audio recording attributed to the al-Qaeda leader and broadcast on the internet yesterday expresses concern about the devastating floods in Pakistan and calls on Muslims to provide relief for the victims. "The number of victims caused by climate change is very big... bigger than the victims of wars," says the recording. If genuine, the recording would be...

    How hot was it? The National Weather Service's thermometer downtown reached 113 degrees for the first time since records began being kept in 1877 — and then stopped working. The record highs follow a summer of record lows. It was so hot Monday that it broke the all-time record — and the weatherman's thermometer. The National Weather Service's thermometer for downtown Los Angeles headed into uncharted territory at 12:15 p.m. Monday, reaching 113 degrees for the first time since records began being kept in 1877. Shortly after that banner moment, the temperature dipped back to 111, and then climbed back...

    Report reveals all bar one of party's 48 mid-term election candidates are sceptical about climate changeAll but one of the 48 Republican hopefuls for the Senate mid-term elections in November deny the existence of climate change or oppose action on global warming, according to a report released today.The strong Republican front against established science includes entrenched Senate leaders as well as the new wave of radical conservatives endorsed by the Tea Party activists, says a report by the Centre for American Progress.

    EAST LANSING, Mich. — Women tend to accept the scientific consensus on global warming more than men, according to a study by a Michigan State University researcher. The findings ('The effects of gender on climate change knowledge and concern in the American public', Population & Environment, 2010, Volume 32, Number 1, Pages 66-87), challenge common perceptions that men are more scientifically literate, said sociologist Aaron M. McCright. "Men still claim they have a better understanding of global warming than women, even though women's beliefs align much more closely with the scientific consensus," said McCright, an associate professor with appointments in...
  • Mass Extinction Threat: Earth on Verge of Huge Reset Button?

    Live Science ^ | September 2, 2010 | Jeremy Hsu
    Mass extinctions have served as huge reset buttons that dramatically changed the diversity of species found in oceans all over the world, according to a comprehensive study of fossil records. The findings suggest humans will live in a very different future if they drive animals to extinction, because the loss of each species can alter entire ecosystems. Some scientists have speculated that effects of humans - from hunting to climate change - are fueling another great mass extinction. A few go so far as to say we are entering a new geologic epoch, leaving the 10,000-year-old Holocene Epoch behind and...

The Discovery Channel and it's affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn's "My Ishmael" pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other's inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue...

    BBC ^ | 27 August 2010 | Brian Milligan
    Motorists considering buying an electric car are being warned that they can be more expensive to run than conventional petrol vehicles. Nissan is due to start taking UK orders for what it says will be the world's first mass-produced electric car. It says running costs for the Nissan Leaf will be as low as 1p a mile. But figures given to the BBC by a rival car firm suggest that over three years, electric cars could be more expensive to run than their petrol equivalents. The figures come from the Japanese car-maker Mitsubishi, which also produces an electric car.

    Junk Science: Our secretary of state tells the world the devastating Pakistani floods are caused by man-made global warming as the U.N. plans to exploit the crisis to restart stalled climate talks. Repent, the end is near. In an interview with Anwar Iqbal of Pakistan's Dawn TV posted on the State Department's Web site, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while discussing the Pakistani floods and American relief efforts, gratuitously said "having gone through Katrina and seeing what's happening around the world with the increase in the number of natural disasters and the extent of the damage that they're causing ......

    One may think that someone as well connected as long-time Washington correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell might also connect the dots. After an unseasonably rough DC winter occurring right in the midst of the ClimateGate scandal, she would be aware of doubt being cast over the idea of manmade global warming. But if you want evidence her mind is made up regardless of any of this, you could detect from her reaction to a report from Politco's Jim VandeHei that some Republican candidates are using the climate change debate to advance their campaigns.

    Hungarian atmospheric physicist Dr. Ferenc Miskolczi, says he has found and proven that the IPCC and their experts are wrong in their theory about how the greenhouse effect works. (snip) Working with a number of sets of temperature and humidity data from all over the world, Miskolczi has found that the greenhouse effect is a balance of energy dependent primarily on the sun. This is something reasonable people have recognized for some time but haven’t been able to prove without the same sort of heavy science and math the IPCC experts have been using. Those who disagree with the IPCC’s...

    The Obama administration told Congress to find a way to regulate greenhouse gases -- or else. Last month, Congress refused: Democratic leaders in the Senate declined to take up climate legislation before their August break, which means it looks effectively dead for this session. Now the White House is stuck with "or else." The Environmental Protection Agency will soon begin regulating greenhouse gases factory by factory, power plant by power plant. That could be unwieldy, expensive and unpopular -- even President Obama has said it's not his preferred solution. But for now, it's his only option. The next few months...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A dangerous heat wave baked a large swath of the nation Thursday from Texas to New York with high humidity making temperatures feel well over 100. Football players moved practice sessions to evening hours and election officials in Tennessee touted air conditioned polling places to lure voters. At least 13 deaths in Tennessee and Mississippi have been related to the recent stretch of steamy weather.

    This is how the left treats those with whom they disagree, folks. Daily Kos contributing editor and Examiner.com writer Steven Andrew has suggested that anyone that disagrees with the globaloney of global warming should commit suicide in a “Soylent Green world.” In his examiner column headlined, “Studies Show Dramatic Decrease in Plankton,” Andrew made what he called a “symbolic suggestion” that might “be in bad taste.” After railing that skeptic Steve Millroy “regularly carpet bombs newspaper editorial pages with climate change disinformation,” Andrew then makes his “suggestion.” Right about here I’d like to insert a symbolic suggestion about how climate...

    Energy Policy: Senate Democrats have shelved job-killing cap-and-trade legislation, at least for now. Neither the political nor the Earth's climate suggests it's a good time to try to fool Mother Nature or the American people. After a Thursday meeting with Senate Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has apparently dropped plans to pursue cap-and-trade before the August recess. He doesn't have the votes to overcome a GOP filibuster, and saving the earth from a phantom threat stands way below jobs on Americans' wish list. But watch out after November. "What he suggested is that we move forward on several bills...
  • An Inconvenient Truth for Schools Debuts on Island (New Documentary)

    07/16/2010 8:42:40 AM PDT · by ruralvoter · 7 replies · 2+ views
    Waiting for Superman is the new documentary by the same people who made An Inconvenient Truth, and this film sets out to do with regard to public education in America what its predecessor did with regard to climate and energy policy. That is, to expose the manifest failings of the system, point to the culprits for those failings and, finally, to suggest remedies. Making the case that the American education system is failing is probably the least contentious part of that process. The statistics on American educational underachievement are far less disputed than those on global warming. And the movie...

    Global land and ocean surface temperatures in the first half of 2010 were the warmest January-June on record, the federal climate service reported Thursday. January-June temperatures averaged 57.5 degrees Fahrenheit, 1.22 F above the 20th Century average, according to the National Climatic Data Center. Its records go back to 1880. 2010 has also surpassed 1998 for the most "warmest months" in any calendar year, the center stated. "Each of the 10 warmest average global temperatures recorded since 1880 have occurred in the last fifteen years," it added. "The warmest year-to-date on record, through June, was 1998, and 2010 is warmer...

    Army looks for ways to use fuel cells with non-petroleum sources The United States Army has started the development and application of hydrogen fuel-cell technology to their vehicles. The first vehicle to receive this technology will be the workhorse M1 Abrams battle tank. This type of tank requires vast amounts of onboard computing power for sensors, computing equipment, battle command technology and other electronic equipment, so using fuel cell technology would be able to provide greater electrical power than the current setup, which is a diesel engine/alternator arrangement.  In addition, the use of a fuel cell would make the tank's motor run in...

    Review provides plenty of evidence that climate science has been and remains an uncertain shambles The last of three British investigations into the notorious Climategate emails, the Independent Climate Change Email Review, landed yesterday and left behind enough cherry-pickable material to give all sides an opportunity to claim modest vindication. Defenders of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, the source of the emails, will be able to spin the 168-page review as proof that the CRU did little wrong. For climate skeptics and others, the review provides plenty of evidence that climate science has been...

    The inevitable has happened with our new July/August issue, which features two articles about climate change -- one listing the mounting evidence that its impacts are being felt right now in the North, the other daring to explore why many Northerners actually like climate change. But no one has paid much attention to those. No, what's getting all the attention -- just as we expected and intended -- is our swimsuit spread. When you want to get attention in a room full of people talking, you tend to yell. So, when we decided to dedicate an entire issue to climate...
