    Among the greatest challenges humankind has faced throughout its history, feeding the world’s hungry ranks at or near the very top of the list. And with the world’s population expected to top nine billion between 2050 and 2100, this issue will surely become even more important in the coming decades. However, what many people may not realize is that the carbon dioxide humans have been pumping into the air since the middle of the 20th century has enriched plant growth, thereby contributing to record crop yields, which has helped to bring about the largest decline in hunger, starvation, and malnutrition...
  • Man Caught on Tape Allegedly Poisoning Couple's Water Jugs

    Authorities in the San Diego area are looking for a man who allegedly poured liquid plant food onto an unopened water jug. The jugs, delivered by Sparkletts, were sitting on the couple's front porch when their home surveillance camera captured the trespasser, saving them from potential harm. ... Tina Gagne said the incident occurred just after midnight Tuesday. Gagne and her wife said they did not recognize the man and don't know why he would have targeted their home.

    During the last ice age, too little atmospheric carbon dioxide almost eradicated mankindGuest Essay by Dennis T. AveryAside from protests by Al Gore, Leonardo Di Caprio and friends, the public didn’t seem to raise its CO2 anguish much above the Russians-election frenzy when Trump exited the Paris Climate Accords.Statistician Bjorn Lomborg had already pointed out that the Paris CO2 emission promises would cost $100 trillion dollars that no one has, and make only a 0.05 degree difference in Earth’s 2100 AD temperature. Others say perhaps a 0.2 degree C (0.3 degrees F) difference, and even that would hold only...
  • Physicist Howard Hayden's one-letter disproof of global warming claims [pre-Climategate]

    Physicist Howard Hayden, a staunch advocate of sound energy policy, sent me a copy of his letter to the EPA about global warming. The text is also appended below, with permission. As noted in my post Access to Energy, Hayden helped the late, great Petr Beckmann found the dissident physics journal Galilean Electrodynamics (brochures and further Beckmann info here; further dissident physics links). Hayden later began to publish his own pro-energy newsletter, The Energy Advocate, following in the footsteps of Beckmann's own journal Access to EnergyI love Hayden's email sign-off, "People will do anything to save the world ... except...

    Known for its liberal politics, Berkeley has racked up a long line of firsts over the years, from taxing sugary drinks to ditching Styrofoam takeout containers. City officials are now considering another novel plan: putting stickers on gas pumps citywide to warn consumers that burning fuel contributes to global warming. The Berkeley City Council is set to vote Tuesday to possibly move forward by early next year with the proposal, among the first of its kind in the U.S. San Francisco is drafting a similar ordinance that the city's Board of Supervisors could vote into law by next spring. Environmental...
  • Utah lawmaker: We should emit more CO2 into the atmosphere

    While the Obama administration is focused on cutting carbon dioxide emissions to fight global warming, one Utah state lawmaker argues that the U.S. should emit more carbon into the atmosphere. Utah Republican state Rep. Jerry Anderson says there’s not enough carbon in the atmosphere and that levels “really could be much higher and give us a lot of benefit for growing plants.” “We are short of carbon dioxide for the needs of the plants,” Anderson, who’s a retired science teacher, told state lawmakers. “Concentrations reached 600 parts per million at the time of the dinosaurs and they did quite well....
  • Some Trees Use Less Water Amid Rising Carbon Dioxide, Paper Says

    The fate of the world’s forests on a warming planet has long been one of the great unanswered questions about climate change. Now, new research is complicating the picture further, suggesting that big shifts are already under way in how forests work. A paper published Wednesday suggests that trees in at least some parts of the world are having to pull less water out of the ground to achieve a given amount of growth. Some scientists say they believe that this may be a direct response to the rising level of carbon dioxide in the air from human emissions, though...
