    BONN, Germany (Reuters) - Climate change presents a tough choice for governments determined both to fight global warming and tackle the rising cost of living. Climate measures inflate energy costs by putting a price on burning fossil fuels and also stoke food bills by using farmland and crops to produce renewable fuels. Now near-record oil and food prices coupled with a global economic slowdown have triggered unrest in several countries and demands to ease taxes on fuels and free up farmland for food. "This important part of the global economy, food and energy, has been grossly distorted due to under-pricing...

    The Bush Administration named the polar bear to the “threatened species” list based on computer predictions of the anticipated loss of sea ice due to global warming Tuesday. “Computer models predict sea ice is likely to recede in the future,” said Department of Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne. “They [polar bears] are in my judgment likely to become endangered in the foreseeable future, in this case 45 years.” Kempthorne used a series of slides showing images of decrease polar sea ice while making his announcement. They are available here. The polar bear’s classification as “threatened” is a step below “endangered”—a classification...

    A notable stories of recent months should have been the evidence pouring in from all sides to cast doubts on the idea that the world is inexorably heating up. The proponents of man-made global warming have become so rattled by how the forecasts of their computer models are being contradicted by the data that some are rushing to modify the thesis. So a German study, published by Nature last week, claimed that, while the world is definitely warming, it may cool down until 2015 "while natural variations in climate cancel out the increases caused by man-made greenhouse gas emissions". A...
  • Greenpeace founder now backs nuclear power (says no proof humans cause Global warming)

    Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose. The chemistry of the atmosphere is changing, and there is a high-enough risk that "true believers" like Al Gore are right that world economies need to wean themselves off fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gases, he said.

    GULFPORT --Old Man Winter is expected to bring bone-chilling temperatures to South Mississippi for the next several nights, with lows threatening the record 19 degrees. The frigid forecast prompted the National Weather Service in New Orleans to issue a hard-freeze warning for Tuesday night, which forced officials in Harrison County to open an emergency shelter for the Coast's homeless and those without heat. ---Snip--- Meteorologists are expecting more of the same frigid temperatures on Thursday and Friday. The Coast could begin thawing out by the weekend with showers and warmer temperatures creeping into the forecast by Saturday and Sunday

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Some of the coldest weather in years is expected to move into Central Florida to begin the New Year, according to Local 6 meteorologist Larry Mowry. "This could be one of the coldest stretches of weather we've seen in about four years by the first part of 2008," Mowry said. Mowry said a cold front will drop temperatures by Tuesday. "But, the coldest of the air arrives on Wednesday," Mowry said. "It is into Wednesday night into Thursday morning when a freeze is possible." Temperatures could drop into the mid 20s in northern Central Florida counties. There...

    Previous Record Dates Back To 1894. It certainly made for quite the winter wonderland on this Christmas Day, and provided quite the surprise to residents. “I think we expected a few flurries and there's probably eight or nine inches now. It's just like Norman Rockwell," . Denver officially recorded 7.8 inches of snow on Christmas Day. The storm dropped the most snowfall in Denver on Christmas Day in more than 100 years. The previous all-time record for snowfall on Dec. 25 in Denver was 6.2 inches, recorded in handwritten records in 1894. Meteorologists say the latest storm boosted Denver's December...

    Unless you’ve put the time in to study the issue, you’re probably one of those people who think that we are in the midst of a climate catastrophe called “Global Warming”. Now, I’m not poking fun at you if you do. After all, you only think this because the media has reported it and reported it and reported it. But did you know that there have been 4 separate media predicted climate catastrophes in the last 100 years including a “Global Cooling” warning as recent as 1975. You didn’t know that? Let’s take a look then. Global Cooling 1895-1932 On...

    Madison, WI is on the verge of setting an all-time December snowfall record, and it could happen Friday. With a forecast for up to nine inches of snow Friday, the record of 35 inches set in 2000 could be toppled by Friday night. Anything over seven inches the rest of 2007 at Dane County Regional Airport will break the mark since the current snowfall total for December is right about 28 inches. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Friday for southern Wisconsin including Dane County because a low pressure system expected to develop in the...

    The New York Times ^ | October 15, 2007 | PAUL KRUGMAN
    On the day after Al Gore shared the Nobel Peace Prize, The Wall Street Journal’s editors couldn’t even bring themselves to mention Mr. Gore’s name. Instead, they devoted their editorial to a long list of people they thought deserved the prize more. And at National Review Online, Iain Murray suggested that the prize should have been shared with “that well-known peace campaigner Osama bin Laden, who implicitly endorsed Gore’s stance.” You see, bin Laden once said something about climate change — therefore, anyone who talks about climate change is a friend of the terrorists. What is it about Mr. Gore...

    Snohomish County opinion Gore's candidacy heats up By Trip Quillman Special to The Times In spite of the late great Molly Ivins' admonition that only fools predict presidential elections, I cannot resist: Al Gore will run for the presidency in 2008, and he will win. As a psychotherapist who spends his days wondering what motivates people, I believe the case for a Gore candidacy is compelling. To have been victorious in the 2000 election (both The New York Times and The Washington Post concluded, ultimately, that Gore won the Florida vote) and yet to have lost that office would have...

    Kids Fear Global Warming More Than Terrorism, Car Crashes, and Cancer, According to National Earth Day Survey NEW YORK, April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- While recent polls show that American adults are most concerned about the war in Iraq, terrorism, and healthcare, a survey of more than 1,000 middle school students across the country found that kids fear global warming more than any of these issues. The survey was conducted by BrainPOP, a New York based educational provider. Some of the most intriguing findings from the BrainPOP global warming survey include: -- Nearly 60 percent of children said they feared global...

    His serious aviation habit means he is hardly the best person to lecture others on the environment. But John Travolta went ahead and did it anyway. The 53-year-old actor, a passionate pilot, encouraged his fans to "do their bit" to tackle global warming. But although he readily admitted: "I fly jets", he failed to mention he actually owns five, along with his own private runway.

    DES MOINES - John Edwards is in Iowa today laying out an energy "very much at the aggressive end of the scale," he said during a stop at the Statehouse. Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee who's campaigning to be at the top of the ticket in 2008, is calling for a cap on greenhouse gas, world leadership on reversing climate change -- including offering to share new clean energy technology with developing nations, meeting the demand for more electricity through efficiency rather than production and creating a new energy economy by investing at least $10 billion in support...

    Al Gore Challenged to International TV Debate on Global Warming PERTH, Scotland, March 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a formal invitation sent to former Vice-President Al Gore's Tennessee address and released to the public, Lord Monckton has thrown down the gauntlet to challenge Gore to what he terms "the Second Great Debate," an internationally televised, head-to-head, nation-unto-nation confrontation on the question, "That our effect on climate is not dangerous." (http://ff.org/centers/csspp/docs/20070316_monckton.html) Monckton, a former policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher during her years as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, said, "A careful study of the substantial corpus of peer-reviewed science reveals that...

    Now, somebody ought to make a movie about Al Gore. I would call it "An Uncomplaining Life." The movie would be about a man who did not quit, who came off the canvas after a painfully close election -- he won the popular vote, after all -- who accepted defeat graciously and tried to unite the nation, who returned to the consuming passion of his earlier days, the environment, and spoke endlessly on the topic, almost always for free, who starred in a documentary based on his speech and who Sunday night, before a billion or so people, won an...
  • Carbon Offsets: Al Gore's Big Easy

    Gore's carbon footprint may be the size of Godzilla's, but he eases his conscience with "carbon offsets." He buys them from himself. And every time someone else buys them, Big Al gets richer. ...Speaking of carbon offsets and shell games, guess where Gore buys his carbon offsets? Well, he buys them from a firm call Generation Investment Management LLP, a tax-exempt U.S. 501(c)3 corporation. The chairman and co-founder is Al Gore. In other words, he buys his carbon offsets from himself. Others who buy these offset are really buying stock in Gore's growing business. You, too, can green up his...

    LONDON -- With a packet of claims that are almost certain to defy conventional wisdom, a television documentary to be aired in Britain this week condemns man-made global warming as a myth that has become "the biggest scam of modern times." The program titled "The Great Global Warming Scandal" and set for screening by TV Channel 4 on Thursday dismisses claims that high levels of greenhouse gases generated by human activity causes climate change. Instead, the program suggests that the sun itself is the real culprit. The documentary, directed by filmmaker Martin Durkin, is at odds with scientific opinion as...
  • Al Gore Profits Of Scaring People

    In "Profit of Doom" at http://www.acton.org/blog/index.html?/archives/1525-Profit-of-Doom.html they explain: Gore is chairman of the firm and, presumably, draws an income or will make money as its investments prosper. In other words, he “buys” his “carbon offsets” from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself. [so he is] profiting from hyping the “global warming” crisis. In a nutshell, Gore consumes large amounts of carbon-based electricity while he trumpets a growing “global warming” crisis that drives up the value of “green” companies like the ones in which he buys carbon offsets invests in their...

    Last night’s coronation of The Goracle was truly wonderful theater. It had everything: glitz, glamor, beautiful people, song and dance, and the man of the hour, The Goracle, himself, making the claim that “This [global warming] isn’t a political issue, it’s a Moral Issue.” To many people, this entire issue appears to be nothing but a political power grab. So, for Gore to try and re-frame global warming as a “moral issue” is interesting. These neo-moralists™ are the very same people who claim that Christians are trying to force morality down their throats to establish a THEOCRACY. Yet, here they...
