    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 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...

    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...

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...

    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...

    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...

Of those, 244 were attributed to cold weather and many of the 271 undetermined deaths were also likely caused by weather.

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...

    Energy: Former Vice President Al Gore admitted Monday that his pivotal 1994 Senate vote for ethanol subsidies was bad policy but good politics. That says a lot about the reality of environmentalism in government. As the ethanol tax credit comes up for renewal in Congress on Dec. 31, it's worth noting it only came about because the vice president cast the decisive 51st vote in favor of it in 1994. At the time, he packaged it as a big move to preserve the environment in a market-friendly, sustainable manner, and for years defended his vote because it was supposedly good...

It seems that its Icelandic equivalent might have the same effect — creating a period of global cooling. This invalidates all of those computer models created by climate-change fanatics warning us of an earth becoming unbearably hot with oceans rising and covering all coastal cities. So Al Gore must be worried. But maybe, at this point, he just doesn’t give a volcano. After all, he’s...

    SYDNEY (AFP) – Climate change could make much of the world too hot for human habitation within just three centuries, research released Tuesday showed. Scientists from Australia's University of New South Wales and Purdue University in the United States found that rising temperatures in some places could mean humans would be unable to adapt or survive. "It would begin to occur with global-mean warming of about seven degrees Celsius (13 Fahrenheit), calling the habitability of some regions into question," the researchers said in a paper. "With 11-12 degrees Celsius warming, such regions would spread to encompass the majority of the...

    Go ahead and add 'comic book' to the list of media formats to feature Al Gore. The former vice president turned green guru is the latest politician to receive the illustrated biopic treatment from Bluewater Productions; an independent production studio of comic books and graphic novels. Other famous names joining Gore in this round of comics are Rush Limbaugh, Nancy Pelosi and Sonia Sotomayor, among others. "We understand that there are many that hold strong and passionate opinions, but Bluewater believes we have a responsibility to transcend the political rancor and give readers and honest accounting of these people's lives...

    OSLO (Reuters) – A thaw of Iceland's ice caps in coming decades caused by climate change may trigger more volcanic eruptions by removing a vast weight and freeing magma from deep below ground, scientists said on Friday.

    Hoaxes: Instead of having his Nobel Prize rescinded for espousing climate fraud, the prophet of doom is set to receive an honorary doctorate of laws and humane letters from the University of Tennessee for his work. (snip) Gore has not changed the planet for the better. He has pushed policies that have stunted economic growth and increased joblessness, poverty and hunger around the world. He's a climate charlatan, the Elmer Gantry of global warming, and it matters not if his latest undeserved award is printed on recycled paper.

    A review from the UK Met Office says it is becoming clearer that human activities are causing climate change. The analysis, published in the Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews Climate Change Journal, has assessed 110 research papers on the subject. It says the earth is changing rapidly, probably because of greenhouse gases. The evidence that human activities are responsible for a rise in temperatures has increased, according to this new assessment by Dr Peter Snott and colleagues at the UK Met Office. The Met Office study comes at a time when some have questioned the entire basis of climate science following recent...

    A seven-month-old baby girl survived three days alone with a bullet in her chest beside the bodies of her parents and toddler brother. Argentines Francisco Lotero, 56, and Miriam Coletti, 23, shot their children before killing themselves after making an apparent suicide pact over fears about global warming.

    Climate Change: We can't stop terrorists from boarding planes with explosive undies, but the CIA has assets sufficient to monitor Arctic ice and look for signs of global warming? Is al-Qaida recruiting polar bears? One wouldn't think that the increasing polar bear population and the increasing rate of recidivism of former Guantanamo detainees released into the wild were related, but they are. At the urging of Al Gore, the administration is signing on to a plan to task vital intelligence assets to protect not the people of the United States, but the environment. The program, shot down by President Bush,...

    It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it. Of course, we would still need to deal with the national security risks of our growing dependence on a global oil market dominated by dwindling reserves in the most unstable region of the world, and the economic risks of sending hundreds of billions of dollars a year overseas in return for that oil. And we would still trail China in the race...
