    The oceans are warming faster than previously estimated, setting a new temperature record in 2018 in a trend that is damaging marine life, scientists said on Thursday...."Global warming is here, and has major consequences already. There is no doubt, none!" the authors wrote in a statement.
  • On 'Daily Show,' Al Gore Claims 'Vast Majority' of USA Opposes Trump on 'Climate Denial'

    Liberals have long honored the power of "satire" to bring the mighty down to size -- when they're conservatives. Liberals are honored and adored. Take The Daily Show on Comedy Central. At least since the days when Jon Stewart brought his "God, I admire you" routine to Democratic candidate John Kerry in 2004, they've been a pliant platform for Democrats. On Wednesday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah offered that to Al Gore, mocking Trump as a "famous scientist" (as if Gore is an astrophysicist?) and only interrrupting Gore's talking points with "right, right" and agreeing with everything. Gore insisted "the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore blasted the Trump administration on Friday for choosing to release a major climate change report on the day after Thanksgiving. "Unbelievably deadly and tragic wildfires rage in the west, hurricanes batter our coasts — and the Trump administration chooses the Friday after Thanksgiving to try and bury this critical U.S. assessment of the climate crisis," Gore said in a statement. "The President may try to hide the truth, but his own scientists and experts have made it as stark and clear as possible," the former vice president-turned climate change advocate added. The congressionally mandated federal...
  • Rising seas give island nation a stark choice: relocate or elevate

    In a moment of reckoning, Marshall Islanders face a stark choice: relocate or elevate. One idea being considered is the construction of a new island or raising an existing one. With 600 billion tons of melting ice flowing into oceans that are absorbing heat twice as fast as 18 years ago, the Marshallese will need to move fast. A report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in October highlighted different projected outcomes from a temperature rise of 1.5°C versus 2°C. In the report, small-island developing states are identified as being at disproportionately higher risk of adverse consequences...
  • New Climate Report Repackages Al Gore-ism With a Government Label

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Climate Scam issues another convenient report filled with inconvenient untruths. – The new big trick of the Climate Scammers is to take the rising dollar costs of major disasters in the U.S. and elsewhere and pretend that means the disasters are getting worse and more frequent through time. Hurricane Harvey cost 10 or 20 times – whatever the number is – more than 1961’s Hurricane Carla cost, so that means it was a much worse storm. Nevermind that, due to the time value of money, a 1961 dollar had ten times...

    California raised more than $800 million from selling permits to release greenhouse gases in the latest quarterly auction. Auction results released Wednesday show all available permits were sold through California’s cap-and-trade program. The program requires polluters to obtain permits for each ton of carbon they release.

    NBC News ^ | Nov. 8, 2018 / 5:10 PM EST | By Janelle Griffith
    The creators of the show “South Park” have issued a rare apology, reprising the character ManBearPig to make amends for a dis that is more than a decade old. In a 2006 episode during season 10 of the animated series, Al Gore issues a stern warning to the students of South Park Elementary School about the “single biggest threat to our planet.” He was talking about ManBearPig, a creature meant to represent climate change... “South Park” was effectively mocking the global issue at the center of “An Inconvenient Truth.” Now, 12 years later, show creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker...

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...
  • Arctic warming alert moves on from polar bear symbol [because of non-extinction]

    EU Observer ^ | Oct. 25, 2018 08:25 | Martin Breum
    The widespread image of the polar bear and the threat of its extinction is perhaps the world’s most powerful image of climate change, but for at least one of the large environmentalist groups behind it, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), this image has become a dilemma. According to UN scientific assessments, the polar bear does not face extinction, and the common understanding that it does now stands in the way of more nuanced communication about climate change in the Arctic. “When the symbol gets bigger than the region itself and people don’t realize that the polar bear is...

    Former Vice President Al Gore said Friday that the United Nations' new report on climate change demonstrates that the world is experiencing a "global emergency." “We have a global emergency,” Gore said in an interview on PBS NewsHour. "You use a phrase like that and some people immediately say, ‘okay calm down, it can’t be that bad.’ But it it is." "What the scientists have warned us in this recent report is that if we do not take action quickly … then consequences down the road would be far, far worse than what we’re experiencing now," Gore added, stating that...

    Former Vice President Al Gore compared the Trump administration to an experiment that’s “terminated early for ethical reasons,” in an interview with MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell that also touched on the upcoming election and man-made global warming. On global warming, Gore repeated to Mitchell the line he uses in nearly every speech: “Every night on the television news is like a nature hike through the book of Revelation.”

    Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday reiterated his call that President Trump should resign. “My only message would be resign,” Gore, an environmental activist, told Fox 11 Los Angeles during an interview about climate change. Gore's remarks came in response to a question about what he would say to the president. “I think everyone knows to discount what this current Administration is doing and saying. They’ve made the EPA the CPA — the Coal Production Agency — instead of protecting the environment," he said. The comments come a little more than a year after Gore told LADbible that, if...

    Fmr. Vice President Al Gore has a message for President Trump: “Resign!” “I don’t mean to be flippant about this,” Gore told FOX 11 Los Angeles’ Elex Michaelson, host of “Good Day L.A.” and “The Issue Is,” in an exclusive interview. “I think everyone knows to discount what this current Administration is doing and saying. They’ve made the EPA the CPA! The Coal Production Agency! Instead of protecting the environment,” Gore said. Gore met with then-Pres. Elect Trump during the president transition, but said Mr. Trump hasn’t implemented his suggestions. “I don’t think he’s prepared to listen to advice about...

    The Guardian ^ | August 15, 2018 | by Jon Abraham
    A new paper, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has received a lot of media attention. The attention is justified because the paper paints a very grim picture of the climate and what humans may be doing to it. There are many really important insights from this paper. The authors wanted to know how feedbacks in the Earth’s climate will play a role in shaping the climate in the future. By feedbacks, we mean a change in one part of the climate that then causes another change, which in turn may cause another change, and...
  • Scientists see fingerprints of climate change all over California’s wildfires

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | August 3, 2018 | by Kurtis Alexander
    Much of the heat that’s gripped California and hastened the spread of deadly wildfires recently is due to a strange but familiar shift in the jet stream — one that’s haunted the West with threatening fire conditions in the past and could cause more hot, dry spells in the future, especially with a changing climate. The jet stream, the river of wind high above the Northern Hemisphere, has been weaker and wavier in the past few weeks, scientists say. Instead of pushing weather systems along as it usually does, it’s allowing the patterns to stagnate. “We’re seeing this mix of...

    Independent Sentinel ^ | July 27, 2018 | S. Noble
    Remember that video of an emaciated Baffin Island polar bear that went viral last December? It became the poster bear for climate change. National Geographic made a stunning admission - it was a bit bogus. The Statement: National Geographic went too far in drawing a definitive connection between climate change and a particular starving polar bear in the opening caption of our video about the animal. We said, "This is what climate change looks like." While science has established that there is a strong connection between melting sea ice and polar bears dying off, there is no way to know...

    In the town of Sodankyla, Finland, the thermometer on July 17 registered a record-breaking 90 degrees, a remarkable figure given that Sodankyla is 59 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in a region known for winter snowmobiling and an abundance of reindeer. This is a hot, strange and dangerous summer across the planet. Greece is in mourning after scorching heat and high winds fueled wildfires that have killed more than 80 people. Japan recorded its highest temperature in history, 106 degrees, in a heat wave that killed 65 people in a week and hospitalized 22,000, shortly after catastrophic flooding killed...
  • Global warming? 2018 year of 'lost summer' for Arctic

    A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks. It’s because the reproduction happens during the summer, and because of extensive July snow this year, there’s been no summer. The report said the frozen precipitation “sealed the birds off from food and nesting sites.” “Without these key resources avian migrants to the region will not reproduce in 2018, experts say.” The report elaborated that snowmelt usually allows shorebirds to begin nesting on eastern Greenland’s treeless tundra during the first half of...

For those suffering from the heat in the U.S. this weekend, be safe and stay cool!”

    Karenna Gore, director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, urged the Catholic Church and other “faith communities” to become climate change activists and preach about taking action on the issue. “I actually think that [preaching is] one of the main things that could actually break through on this issue. One of the ways that we could break through on this issue is if people really start to think deeply on another level about it; on a moral and spiritual level and are moved from a different kind of place to take action, to raise it with...
