    Final curtain. I don’t know how to break this one to you. There was a chance, my friends - a fleeting chance - for the creative community to capture the hearts of the nation concerning the true greatest threat to humanity. A theater company was on board. Taxpayer money was committed. The inevitable nationwide enthusiasm for the production would surely turn us all into activists for whatever action Democrats deem necessary to deal with global warming. New taxes. New federal controls on industry. A treaty empowering the United Nations to shut down our factories on the hint of carbon levels...
  • Mars: Reborn, 3 'Simple' Steps to Make Mars Like Earth

    RealClearScience ^ | September 9, 2014
    A jump, hop, and a rocket ride away lies Earth's blushing sister: Mars. While apparently lifeless today, some 4 billion years ago, Mars featured rivers, oceans, and potentially even microbial life. The good times obviously didn't last. On Earth, we fear asteroid impacts as harbingers of destruction, but to early Mars, they were cascading gifts of life. The energy and gas they provided helped keep the planet hot and wet. But as the solar system settled down after its turbulent birth, those impacts grew to be few and far between. At the same time, Mars' core was cooling, quieting the...

    All of the forecasts made by a legion of climate charlatans in the 1980s and 1990s turned out to be WRONG. If I need my car repaired, I do not take it to a dentist. If I am seeking advice about the climate I check out what climatologists and meteorologists are saying, at least those who have not sold their souls to the global warming/climate change hoax. On September 3 The Wall Street Journal published a commentary by Edward P. Lazear titled “The Climate Change Agenda Needs to Adapt to Reality: Limiting carbon emissions won’t work. Better to begin adjusting...

    The supposed impact of global warming on the Gulf of Maine over the past decade has hit a multitude of media outlets. Example: takeWeather.com’s article Global Warming Is Changing the Gulf of Maine, Imperiling Its Lobster, Fish Catch. According to the article, Gulf of Maine temperatures were marching along with the global average from 1982 to 2004, but then over the past decade, starting in 2004, the Gulf of Maine began warming at a rate that was 10 times faster than the previous rate. So let’s take a look at the sea surface temperature data for the Gulf of Maine,...

And anyway the polar bear population has increased fivefold in 50 years, which hardly sounds like a species under threat." Then they showed us the Hockey Stick. But we just laughed and made amusing videos about Michael Mann. But then, they showed us their ultimate weapon: grainy, arty, black and white portraits of climate scientists with concerned expressions on their faces. It was then that we knew...

    Submitting the U.S. to the international community’s will — without the consent of Congress In yet another demonstration of contempt for the Constitution, President Obama and his administration are pursuing what the New York Times characterizes as a “sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions”—absent any input from Congress. The Constitution requires a two-thirds majority approval by the Senate to ratify any legally binding treaty. The Obama administration plans to sidestep that requirement by calling the agreement a “politically binding” deal that would substitute for an actual treaty. It would consist of...

    A new sun rose over the United Nations today and it's got the Barack Obama logo on it. In one of the most significant transitions of our lifetime, a mantle was passed today, yet most of humanity remains blissfully unaware of it. It couldn’t be worse because just as the late and lamented author Henry Lamb predicted back in 1997, aging, health-hampered Global Warming/Climate Change Godfather Maurice Strong has been replaced by Barack Obama. “The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratifications...

    The New York Times has a splashy front page article today that’s sure to warm the hearts of global warming fanatic. It likely will cause opponents of so-called climate change to burn with the rage of a thousand suns. In fact, we should not get excited at all. President Obama is working on a non-binding international agreement on climate change. It would “name and shame” countries that don’t comply with its strict standards. Those pushing this agreement believe it has “legal and political magic.” In reality, it won’t be worth the paper it’s written on. Obama cannot get a climate...

    Even more climate hysteria, and still no evidence The recent toxic algae bloom near Toledo, Ohio—which severely disrupted the potable water supply to this city—has generated a lot of finger-pointing. Climate change features prominently as a common causal target. The Guardian initially attempted to blame this year’s algae bloom on hotter summers in the Toledo area, which overlooked the following basic facts ruling out this blame: “July 2014 was one of the coldest months of July on record for the Toledo region, Lake Erie’s temperature during the last days of the month was well below the historical average and the...

    Research into global cooling and its implications for the globe is long overdue We may be witnessing the sun’s last dying gasps before entering into a long slumber. The impact of that slumber on Earth’s climate remains the subject of growing scientific speculation. (1) In 2008 William Livingston and Matthew Penn of the National Solar Observatory in Tucson, in a controversial paper that contradicted conventional wisdom and upset global warming theorists, predicted that sunspots could more or less disappear after 2015, possibly indicating the onset of another Little Ice Age. They stated, “The occurrence of prolonged periods with no sunspots...

    The United States Drought Monitor map is showing that 58% of the state is currently experiencing an “exceptional drought” stage. This represents a 22% increase from just a week ago. Droughts can prove devastating to a community as widespread crop and pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams and wells accompany drought conditions. Exceptional drought, the most extreme category, indicates the most extreme conditions of drought and is considered to be a precursor to Lynne Wilson, who serves on the climate change delegation in the United Nations, “Civilizations in the past have had to migrate out of areas...

According to those reports, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan were 29 inches below their average measurements taken since 1918. Scientists warned communities that they could only expect more tragedy with the Great Lakes. With a lack of rain from climate change, they told everyone to expect levels to continue to drop.

    According to Canada’s state broadcaster—the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)—“‘Tornadoes of fire’ in N.W.T. [Northwest Territories] are linked to climate change.” The story cites Mike Flannigan—a professor of Wildland Fire in the University of Alberta’s renewable resources department—and Dave Phillips—a senior climatologist with Environment Canada—as the sources for the link between these fires and climate change. Conveniently, there is a long-term climate station at Yellowknife in Environment Canada’s Adjusted and Homogenized Canadian Climate Data (AHCCD) database going back to 1943.

    There is an intentional tension in Washington. Our founding fathers planned that opposing views would balance each other out—a push-pull takes place. Spend. Don’t spend. This tug-of-war is seen, perhaps most obviously, in the so-called renewable energy field. After Solyndra, and the more than fifty other stimulus-funded green energy projects that have failed or are circling the drain, the public has grown weary, and wary, of any more spending on green energy. The money isn’t there to spend and the motive behind the 2009 rush to push billions of taxpayer dollars out through the Department of Energy has been tainted...

By the time it nears Okinawa early Tuesday, Super Typhoon Neoguri is likely to be generating winds as strong as a Category 5 hurricane, meteorologists say. "This is a beast," said CNN International Meteorologist Tom Sater. Okinawa, where multiple U.S. military facilities are situated, regularly finds itself in the path of big typhoons. Many of the buildings on the island are designed to weather the powerful winds that come roaring in off the Western...

Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, responded to e-mail questions and also spoke by telephone about the new record sea ice growth in the Southern Hemisphere, indicating that, somewhat counter-intuitively, the sea ice growth was specifically due to global warming....

    Approved climate change scientists have been quietly manipulating temperature data dating back to at least the 1930′s. In order to prove global warming, these scientists have tossed aside actual temperature data collected in the 30′s and beyond in favor of computer models. Those computer models just happen to prove exactly what their programers want to prove. Thus computer models show a massive warming since the 30′s when actual temperatures taken during that decade show it to be the warmest decade on record. Of course progressive scientists can’t peddle doom and gloom unless there is a massive warming. Actual temperatures get...

The 213 months without global warming represent more than half the 425-month satellite data record since January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming.

Put aside whether the Earth actually will warm and whether a three-foot rise would really be catastrophic. Put aside, too, any doubts about how much melting will occur even if the Earth warms by a few degrees, given that the average annual high temperature in Antarctica is -49 F. Does the reality...

    Former Vice President Al Gore blamed global warming for the devastating natural disasters in the Philippines and northeastern U.S. in a Politico interview published Friday. The extensive interview, in which Gore calls himself a "recovering politician" and declines to rule out a Presidential run in 2016, also focuses heavily on Gore's thoughts on efforts to combat climate change. Gore said he thinks the world is nearing a "tipping point" in which there would be "shared resolve" to decrease the use of fossil fuels worldwide. He also said that, if steps are taken now, some "catastrophic" events might be avoided. But...

    According to a fact sheet published by the White House late last month, part of the Obama Administration’s effort to curb greenhouse gases involves cutting “cow emissions.”The executive announcement has since boosted an interest in researching technology to accomplish the Administration’s environmental goals.The Financial Times reports that scientists now have a renewed interest in developing “a next-generation creature whose greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by anti-methane pills, burp scanners and gas backpacks.”The Cow of the Future Project, directed by Juan Tricarico, is looking for a “star athlete” of the bovine world, says FT. He says the Administration’s latest environmental...

    This post is of interest to ham radio operators, and also anyone who wishes to monitor NOAA weather radio, police, fire, EMS, aircraft, marine, and other radio traffic using a $15 receiver plugged into your laptop. The Chinese USB "dongles", originally intended to receive the Far East mobile television service, are being re-purposed as VHF/UHF receivers for many different modulation schemes and protocols.  The software to re-purpose them runs either on a PC (Win/Mac/Linux), or on a single-board computer like a Raspberry PI (Raspian Linux). At about US$15, Ol' Backwoods just had to have one. The RTL-SDR receives on...

In a statement issued by the State Department, Kerry called denial of climate change science “malpractice” and warned the “costs of inaction are catastrophic.”

    A History of the Disastrous Global Warming Hoax “It is the greatest deception in history and the extent of the damage has yet to be exposed and measured,” says Dr. Tim Ball in his new book, “The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science”. Dr. Ball has been a climatologist for more than forty years and was one of the earliest critics of the global warming hoax that was initiated by the United Nations environmental program that was established in 1972 and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) established in 1988. Several UN conferences set in motion the hoax that is...

    This is the story of my family's experience during the ice storm that hit the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) of South Carolina and Georgia. My family and a network of friends, who live in the area, are reasonably prepared for any problems that may come our way with food and water storage, shelter, generators, et cetera. When the "ice hit the fan" in our area, we had a very real test of our preps that lasted five days, and some families were still without power seven days later.
