    GENEVA -- The depletion of the ozone layer shielding Earth from damaging ultraviolet rays has reached an unprecedented low over the Arctic this spring because of harmful chemicals and a cold winter, the U.N. weather agency said Tuesday. The Earth's fragile ozone layer in the Arctic region has suffered a loss of about 40 percent from the start of winter until late March, exceeding the previous seasonal loss of about 30 percent, the World Meteorological Organization said. The Geneva-based agency blamed the loss on a buildup of ozone-eating chemicals once widely used as coolants and fire retardants in a variety...
  • Cold winters cause global warming

    04/05/2011 8:05:48 AM PDT · by big black dog · 16 replies
    From the Guardian: UK greenhouse gas emissions rise Cold winter leads to 2.8% rise in greenhouse gas emissions in 2010, figures show. Greenhouse gas emissions rose by nearly 3% last year, according to government statistics released on Thursday. The increase was a result of the continuing recovery of the economy after the crash which followed the banking crisis of 2008. Overall, emissions of the six major greenhouse gases including carbon dioxide were up 2.8% on 2009. Previously, due in part to the recession hitting industry and energy use, 2009 had seen large falls in greenhouse gases (down 8.7% on 2008)....
  • Al Gore: House GOP majority mirrors 'dark days' of Bush administration

    Al Gore: House GOP majority mirrors 'dark days' of Bush administration By Sean J. Miller - 03/24/11 03:16 PM ET The former vice president made a fundraising pitch for the DCCC ahead of March 31 fundraising goal of $1 million. Former Vice President Al Gore is asking Democratic activists to send donations to House Democrats' campaign arm as a check on the "extreme elements in control of today’s Republican Party." "Not since the dark days of the Bush administration have we seen a Republican-controlled Congress that is so intent on pushing their agenda in Washington — protecting tax breaks for...
  • Why Are Americans So Ill-Informed about Climate Change?

    Scientists and journalists debate why Americans still resist the consensus among research organizations that humans are warming the globe As glaciers melt and island populations retreat from their coastlines to escape rising seas, many scientists remain baffled as to why the global research consensus on human-induced climate change remains contentious in the U.S. The frustration revealed itself during a handful of sessions at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, D.C., this past weekend, coming to a peak during a Friday session, "Science without Borders and Media Unbounded." Near the forum’s conclusion, Massachusetts...
  • Gangwon buried in most snow in a century [ Korea ]

    Korean JoonAng Daily ^ | Feb 13 2011 | Kim Hee-jin
    The biggest snowfall in 100 years in Gangwon paralyzed coastal cities and mountain villages near the East Sea, isolating about 1,280 residents in 640 households and leading to the collapse of 75 structures. The local military office sent 11 helicopters and roughly 12,000 soldiers on rescue operations. And more snow was predicted for the region overnight, up to 50 additional centimeters (19.7 inches), by the Korea Meteorological Administration yesterday. The administration issued heavy snow warnings to most cities and villages in the province. “As the temperature will plunge tonight, leading to icy roads in the morning, drivers and pedestrians should...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2011-02-03 | Lorrie Goldstein
    Al Gore has whipped up another blizzard of controversy by arguing global warming — climate change, if you prefer — causes more snow. Challenged by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly to explain why southern New York (and, for that matter, large parts of North America and Europe) looks like “the tundra” this winter, Gore responded on his blog by quoting approvingly from a year-old column by the Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page, commenting on last winter’s severe weather and heavy snowfall in parts of the United States. To wit: “In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global...

    Al Gore responds to Bill O’Reilly on snow-climate nexus By Ben Geman - 02/01/11 03:36 PM ET Al Gore is taking Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly up on his request to address this winter’s severe snowstorms. O’Reilly on the Jan. 27 edition of The O’Reilly Factor asked, “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra,” adding, “I have a call in to Al Gore.” The former vice president and climate activist provided a response on his website Tuesday. “I appreciate the question,” Gore wrote. “As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some...

    BRUSSELS (AFP) – Hackers stole two million tonnes of polluting rights in a five-day raid this week on the European Union's carbon emissions trading system, an EU source said on Thursday. The volume of carbon credits stolen in online action, which a European Commission spokeswoman was "possibly concerted", represents just a fraction of global industrial greenhouse gas permits, but is potentially worth many millions of euros. The scale of the theft, which involved five unnamed EU states, was revealed a day after Brussels shut all 27 national trading registries for a week, citing inadequate online protection. Credits stolen just from...

    Glory is a low Earth orbit scientific research satellite designed to collect data on the properties of aerosols, including black carbon, in the Earth's atmosphere and climate system, and to collect data on solar irradiance for the long-term effects on the Earth climate record. The new robotic probe is headed to the launch pad, aiming for a spot aboard what is called the A-train -- a fleet of Earth-orbiting spacecraft keeping tabs on the planet's changing climate. Coming to a topline conclusion about the treality of global warming will be a snap: Glory will measure the total amount of energy...

    PARIS (AFP) – Global warming may wipe out three-quarters of Europe's alpine glaciers by 2100 and hike sea levels by four metres (13 feet) by the year 3000 through melting the West Antarctic icesheet, two studies published on Sunday said. The research places the spotlight on two of the least understood aspects of climate change: how, when and where warming will affect glaciers on which many millions depend for their water, and the problems faced by generations in the far distant future. The glacier study predicts that mountain glaciers and icecaps will shrink by 15-27 percent in volume terms on...

    Former Vice President Al Gore is picking a fight with Fox News over a year-old management memo that he says betrays a bias against global warming science. "Fox News has consistently delivered false and misleading information to its viewers about the climate crisis," Gore wrote on his website. "The leaked e-mails now suggest that this bias comes directly form the executives responsible for their news coverage." Gore was referring to a Dec. 8, 2009 memo attributed to Fox News' Washington Managing Editor Bill Sammon and posted by the liberal-leaning website Media Matters, according to The Hill newspaper. In the memo,...

    THE earth continues to get warmer, yet it’s feeling a lot colder outside. Over the past few weeks, subzero temperatures in Poland claimed 66 lives; snow arrived in Seattle well before the winter solstice, and fell heavily enough in Minneapolis to make the roof of the Metrodome collapse; and last week blizzards closed Europe’s busiest airports in London and Frankfurt for days, stranding holiday travelers. The snow and record cold have invaded the Eastern United States, with more bad weather predicted. (blah, blah, blah... its all caused by global warming you ignorant fools)

    Not only does this show total desperation by the AGW crowd, but exposes again the media’s complete collapse. ---------- The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the German media are now in full panic mode. They can no longer get their stories straight. Desperate to stem the flood of doubt now sweeping Germany, as the country is gripped by its harshest December in 100 years, including record snowfalls in Potsdam, the hyper-alarmist PIK and the German media are now throwing all they’ve got to explain away the embarrassing cold. For years they preached endlessly that Germany would be...

    Coldest December since records began as temperatures plummet to minus 10C bringing travel chaos across Britain Swathes of Britain skidded to a halt today as the big freeze returned - grounding flights, closing rail links and leaving traffic at a standstill. And tonight the nation was braced for another 10in of snow and yet more sub-zero temperatures - with no let-up in the bitterly cold weather for at least a month, forecasters have warned. The Arctic conditions are set to last through the Christmas and New Year bank holidays and beyond and as temperatures plummeted to -10c (14f) the Met...

    Unusually cold weather last winter killed Florida's endangered manatees at a record rate, a report said on Friday. During 2010, a record 699 manatees have died in Florida, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Research Institute. Of those, 244 were attributed to cold weather and many of the 271 undetermined deaths were also likely caused by weather. In most years, the leading cause of manatee deaths is from collisions with power boats

Dr. Roy Spencer, who is in Cancun representing climate skepticism on behalf of CFACT writes on his blog: Today’s my first full day in Cancun at COP-16, and as I emerged from my hotel room I was greeted by a brisk, dry, cool Canadian breeze. It was 54 deg. F in Cancun this morning — a record low for the date. (BTW, Cancun is nowhere near Canada). Al Gore is not...

    Blam! Kapow! Smack! The bell has rung for the latest round of climate talks, but the battle continues among climate scientists too, making only one thing truly clear -- the science of global warming simply isn't settled. Climate science suffered a black eye over the past 12 months, following revelations that the latest report from the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) contained numerous errors and relied too heavily on questionable sources. At the latest climate conference in Cancun, the group will stress that its research must continue.  But while governments try to push through an accord, the fighting...

    At least 60 people have died across Europe during the current cold snap, as snow plagued transport in Britain on Friday and serious flooding prompted mass evacuations in the Balkans. Seventeen people died in Central Europe in the last 24 hours from the cold, bringing the total this week to 45. A further 11 died in Russia, plus three in France and one in Germany, according to local authorities. At least 30 people, mainly homeless men, have died in Poland in the past week, and temperatures dropped to minus 15 degrees Celsius (five degrees Fahrenheit) overnight. Temperatures plunged to minus...
