    After 241 years of American freedom the world will be returned to the dystopian existence of masters and slaves because a willfully blind American public was seduced by the Humanitarian Hoax of climate change The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy. Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened and politicized the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for eight years by presenting his crippling policies as altruistic when in fact they were designed for destruction. His...
  • Vatican archbishop: All should accept that global warming is a fact

    The head of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences has again inferred that denial of the controversial concept of manmade climate change equates to flat earth mentality. "From the scientific point of view, the sentence that the earth is warmed by human activity is as true as the sentence: The earth is round!” said Archbishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo. The archbishop has been a consistent and zealous promoter of manmade climate change as a non-negotiable Church issue, despite the status of care for the environment as a prudential matter.   Climate change ideology continues to be contested as a ploy perpetrated with...
  • Climate change could mean a much wetter California

    Californians have been bracing themselves for a drier future accompanying a warming climate. But research by scientists at the University of California, Riverside, suggests that the state may actually get wetter in the event of severe climate change. The study, published July 6 in Nature Communications, reports that more years in the state could look like El Nio ones, when California typically has wetter winters. The authors found that average annual precipitation in California could increase by about 12 percent if nothing is done to curb carbon emissions. Average precipitation in the winter could increase by as much as 30...

    With America preparing to exit the Paris climate accord, mayors and governors are setting their own climate goals, protests are erupting, and social media is all atwitter. But the reality is that combating climate change is largely a matter of personal responsibilityand one of the easiest and best steps we can take concerns what we put on our plates. Take protein, for example. Worldwide, over 80 billion land animals are farmed for food. To produce just a single pound of meat, those animals may each eat upwards of 15 pounds of feedmeaning mass meat production funnels far more resources through...

    We've all heard of ways to reduce our carbon footprint: biking to work, eating less meat, recycling. But there's another way to help the climate. A recent study from Lund University in Sweden shows that the biggest way to reduce climate change is by having fewer children. "I knew this was a sensitive topic to bring up," says study co-author Kimberly Nicholas on NPR's Morning Edition. "Certainly it's not my place as a scientist to dictate choices for other people. But I do think it is my place to do the analysis and report it fairly." The study concludes that...
  • We Just Passed Prince Charless 96-Month Deadline to Save The World From Ecosystem Collapse

    Prince Charles warned in July 2009 humanity had only 96 months to save the world from irretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse, and all that goes with it caused by unchecked consumerism. Saturday marked the 96-month deadline the Prince of Wales set, meaning that, according to Charles, humanity has run out of time to avert an environmental crisis. We face the dual challenges of a world view and an economic system that seem to have enormous shortcomings, together with an environmental crisis including that of climate change which threatens to engulf us all, Charles said in a 2009 speech...

    When a U.S. Republican senator threw a snowball onto the Senate floor in late February of 2015, he used it to underscore his belief that humanmade climate change was an alarmist conclusion. The snowball had been rolled from the capital grounds in Washington D.C., which, at the time, was experiencing an uncharacteristically cold winter. If global warming was real, he postured, how could the nation's capital experience such severe cold? Uncharacteristically cold winters, however, just might be one of the most hard felt effects of climate change, according to a study published in Nature Geoscience by a team of researchers....

    When we think of climate change, most of us think of environmental consequences like rising sea levels, elevated temperatures and melting glaciers. But experts say that those effects may only be the tip of the (melting) iceberg. Climate change is shaking up everything from finance to health. As a result, it isnt only urban planners in at-risk areas who will have to shift their framework for planning for the future. From financial planners to farmers, civil engineers to doctors, an increasingly wide range of other professionals are likely to find their industries affected. That means there may be another consequence...

    It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas and the cities they will drown have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough. Indeed,...

    Siberia is no stranger to mysterious explosions. In 1908, a blast flattened an entire forest and the exact cause of the Tunguska Event is still debated. More recent explosions, by far less powerful, but still dangerous, seem to be caused by climate change. According to a reindeer herder of the Jamal Peninsula, on the morning of June 28, he heard a loud blast and a column of smoke rising from the ground. The explosion he heard created a crater with a diameter of 25 feet and almost 65 feet deep. When first reports about the mysterious craters in Siberia appeared...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel is battling to prevent US President Donald Trump undermining the world leaders' united front on climate change. At the Paris climate deal, all world leaders spoke in favour of limiting global temperature rise to 2 degrees but that was after a massive diplomatic effort by President Barack Obama made membership of the climate club a moral imperative. He and the French hosts created such an atmosphere that even the normally foot-dragging Russians and Saudis committed to the deal, despite their long history of slowing progress in climate negotiations behind the scenes. They own vast fossil fuel...

    Way, way back in April 2017, scientists around the world participated in the March for Science as a show of force and unity against an allegedly anti-science Trump administration. Their motto was science not silence: many wrote that mantra on pieces of duct tape and stuck it across their mouths. March for Science organizers claimed that the best way to ensure science will influence policy is to encourage people to appreciate and engage with science". But that was so three months ago. Many scientists are now rejecting an open debate on anthropogenic global warming. EPA administrator Scott Pruitt appears ready...

    U.S. President Donald Trump arrived for a G20 summit in Hamburg on Thursday risking isolation on climate policy and the wrath of anti-capitalist protesters threatening to disrupt the meeting of the world's leading economic powers. Trump, who paused to wave as he descended the steps of Air Force One with his wife Melania, faces a testy confrontation with leaders of the other big G20 economies after deciding last month to pull the United States out of the 2015 Paris climate deal. Trade policy is another area of contention at the summit, which protesters have vowed to disrupt. "Welcome to Hell"...

    Hopes that the worlds huge carbon emissions might not drive temperatures up to dangerous levels have been dashed by new research. The work shows that temperature rises measured over recent decades do not fully reflect the global warming already in the pipeline and that the ultimate heating of the planet could be even worse than feared. How much global temperatures rise for a certain level of carbon emissions is called climate sensitivity and is seen as the single most important measure of climate change. Computer models have long indicated a high level of sensitivity, up to 4.5C for a doubling...

In my case, that one thing is to study the nature and causes of climate change. You put in a long apprenticeship. You spend years learning about the climate system, computer models of climate and climate observations. You start filling a tool kit with the statistical and mathematical methods youll need for analyzing complex data sets. After decades of seeking to advance scientific understanding, reality suddenly shifts, and you are back in the cold darkness of ignorance....

    On a humid afternoon this past November, I pulled off Interstate 75 into a stretch of Florida pine forest tangled with runaway vines. My GPS was homing in on the house of a man I thought might hold the master key to one of the strangest scholarly mysteries in recent decades: a 1,300-year-old scrap of papyrus that bore the phrase Jesus said to them, My wife. The fragment, written in the ancient language of Coptic, had set off shock waves when an eminent Harvard historian of early Christianity, Karen L. King, presented it in September 2012 at a conference...

    Californians pay more for gasoline and other goods to finance the states war on climate change. The state Supreme Court decided Wednesday theyll continue paying for at least three more years. The court declined to hear a lawsuit challenging the state-run auctions of carbon-emissions allowances, which cement makers, food processors and others must purchase in order to spew greenhouse gases. Two lower courts already ruled the auctions, which have raised billions of dollars since their introduction in 2012, are constitutional. The auctions are an integral part of Californias cap-and-trade program, which is designed to reduce carbon emissions. Companies get most...

    Avoiding dangerous levels of climate change is still just about possible, but will require unprecedented effort and coordination from governments, businesses, citizens and scientists in the next three years, a group of prominent experts has warned. Scientists have been warning that time is fast running out to stave off the worst effects of warming, and some milestones may have slipped out of reach. In the Paris agreement, governments pledged an aspirational goal of holding warming to no more than 1.5C, a level which it is hoped will spare most of the worlds lowest-lying islands from inundation. While the greenhouse gases...
