  • On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

    Environmental Progress ^ | 6-29-2020 | Michael Shellenberger
    On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30. But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next...

    Legendary singer Meat Loaf has accused teenage climate-change activist Greta Thunberg of being "brainwashed," saying he believes there is no such thing as climate change. "I feel for that Greta," he told U.K.'s Daily Mail. "She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn't. "She hasn't done anything wrong but she's been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true." The rocker, who campaigned with Mitt Romney in 2012 and worked with Donald Trump on "The Apprentice" back in 2010, previously claimed that he lost a few gigs thanks to politics. "I've been...
  • Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us (2004. Britain will be 'Siberian' in less than 20 years)

    the guardian ^ | 2-21-2004 | Mark Townsend, paul harris
    A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

  • Water Vapor Can "Trap", Heat -- CO2 Cannot

    Global warming Religion ^ | 08/15/19 | Reasonmclucus
    Those who talk about carbon dioxide affecting temperature ignore the fact that water's potential to affect air temperature is well established in science. Water vapor is the only atmospheric gas that can hold or "trap" heat. Those who spend much time in greenhouses know that they are often very humid places because water evaporates from plants and from surfaces that get wet when the plants are watered. Meteorologists typically refer to the water vapor content of the air as relative humidity which is how close the air is to holding as much water vapor as it can hold at its...
  • Harvard creates advisory panel to oversee solar geoengineering project (block sun/cool planet)

    Plans to test a technique that would cool the planet by blocking sunlight are one step closer to reality. Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has created an external advisory panel to examine the potential ethical, environmental and geopolitical impacts of this geoengineering project, which has been developed by the university’s researchers. Known as the Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx), the project would involve the release of calcium carbonate particles from a steerable balloon some 20 kilometres above the southwestern United States.

    RUSH: I don’t know how many of you people noticed this, but this is another great opportunity to illustrate how the weather has become so corrupt politicized in order to push this silly man-made global warming narrative. This is Tuesday. On Sunday, we started getting warnings here in south Florida. “Major tropical depression developing off the coast of Florida.” I started getting alerts on my phone from all of my weather apps. I said, “What the hell is this?” So I went and looked at it. And sure enough, it was a thunderstorm with 30-mile-an-hour winds. And the National Weather...

    Changes could be coming to your favorite restaurant thanks to a statewide initiative just being announced Wednesday, called Restore California Renewable Restaurants. Restaurant owners have the option of charging customers an additional 1% on their bills that would go to help stop climate change. Payments will be gathered by the California Air Resources Board and spent on implementing carbon plans on farms and ranches across California, boosting healthy soil, according to the Perrenial Farming Initiative. “There’s always going to be the people who say, why is this on the bill? I don’t want to pay it. I don’t care what...

    A scientist who raised early alarms about climate change and popularized the term "global warming" has died. Wallace Smith Broecker was 87. The longtime Columbia University professor and researcher died Monday at a New York City hospital, according to a spokesman for the university's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Kevin Krajick said Broecker had been ailing in recent months.

    A remote Russian region has declared a state of emergency over the appearance of dozens of polar bears in its human settlements, local officials say. Authorities in the Novaya Zemlya islands, home to a few thousand people, said there were cases of bears attacking people and entering residential and public buildings. Polar bears are affected by climate change and are increasingly forced on to land to look for food. Russia classes them as endangered.
  • Earth's 5 warmest years on record have occurred since 2014

    Axios ^ | February 6, 2019 | Andrew Freedman
    Last year was Earth's 4th-warmest year on record, coming in behind 2016, the planet's warmest recorded year, as well as 2015 and 2017, according to information released Wednesday by NOAA, NASA and the U.K. Met Office. Why it matters: The yearly rankings don't tell the whole story of long-term climate change, since natural variability can still push or pull an individual year up or down the rankings. However, the overall picture is growing starker with each passing year. Nine of the 10 warmest years on record since reliable data began in 1880 have occurred since 2005. At the same time,...

    Researchers say a massive cavity the size of two-thirds of Manhattan was found under a glacier in Antarctica. The pocket is a sign of "rapid decay" and just one of "several disturbing discoveries" made recently regarding the glacier, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a news release Wednesday. "[The size of] a cavity under a glacier plays an important role in melting," said Pietro Milillo of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. "As more heat and water get under the glacier, it melts faster." The growing cavity sits in West Antarctica at the bottom of Thwaites Glacier, which is about as big...

    RUSH: Look at this headline: “Majority of Wild Coffee Species at Risk of Extinction, Study Finds.” This is in something called The Scientist magazine. Now, this is how climate change advocates do it. When all else is bombing out, when all else is failing, tell people that something they can’t do without, they don’t want to do without, tell people something that they habitually engage in is about to be taken away from them because of X. In this case, climate change. I’ve not shared them with you, but there have been doom-and-gloom stories about chocolate and bananas related to...

    Coffee lovers, here’s one more reason to savor that morning cup o’ joe. Research shows 60 percent of coffee species found in the wild could soon go extinct. In a new study published in the journal Science Advances on Wednesday, researchers at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens say factors putting the future of coffee at risk include climate change, deforestation, droughts, and plant diseases. According to the study, a collaboration between scientists from the UK and Ethiopia, out of 124 types of wild coffee, 75 are at risk of extinction. About 35 of the 124 species grow in areas with no...

    Climate change is a sprawling, complex problem. But there is an astonishingly simple way to make a difference: plant more trees. Trees scrub pollution from the air, reduce erosion, improve water quality, provide homes for animals and insects, and enhance our lives in countless other ways. It turns out that ecosystem restoration is also an emerging business opportunity. A new report from the World Resources Institute and the Nature Conservancy says governments around the world have committed to reviving nearly 400 million acres of wilderness — an area larger than South Africa. As countries push to regrow forests, startups are dreaming up...

    Environmental scientists are urging lawmakers around the world to ban glitter from being used in art supplies because of the damage glitter particles do to the environment. Scientists are particularly concerned that the plastic particles that make up glitter would pollute the environment and poison the animals who eat from it, CBS Philadelphia reported. Dr. Trisia Farrelly, an environmental anthropologist at Massey University in New Zealand, says she wants to see glitter banned because of the damage it does to the ecosystem. “I think all glitter should be banned because it’s microplastic,” she said.
