  • Study Finds Temperature Adjustments Account For ‘Nearly All Of The Warming’ In Climate Data

    The Daily Caller ^ | July 5, 2017 | Michael Bastasch
    A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.” “Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published [global average surface temperature (GAST)] data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever – despite current claims of record setting warming,” according to a study published June 27 by two scientists and a veteran statistician. The peer-reviewed study tried to validate current surface temperature datasets managed by NASA, NOAA and the UK’s Met Office, all of which make adjustments to...

  • Monsoonal moisture flow begins over Coronado Nat. Forest

    07/11/2017 7:48:40 AM PDT · by SandRat · 15 replies
    TUCSON — National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologists advise that a high pressure ridge is currently positioned over the four corners area of Arizona. This placement has provided conditions for moisture from Mexico to be swept into Arizona, bringing the much-needed moisture southeast Arizona normally receives at this time of year from the Mexican monsoon. While a very welcome event, this surge of moisture brings with it lightning that has historically ignited a number of fires across the Coronado National Forest’s landscapes. A number of such ignitions are expected to occur over the next several weeks as monsoonal moisture moves...

    Four states–California, Connecticut, Washington and Oregon have joined together to form the United States Climate Alliance. The objective is to bypass Trump’s decision and implement the terms of the Paris Accord on climate. California was the first to take action by ratifying a separate climate pact with China. “We had to pick a side,” Gov. Jerry Brown (D) declared. “Looking at the options we determined that Trump is the greater threat. So we made our own deal with China.” The deal reportedly will increase the importation of “green technologies” manufactured in China. The irony is that Chinese factories are among...

    Red State ^ | June 5, 2017 | Dan Spencer
    President Donald J. Trump believes in climate change and that humans have a role in it. That's what U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley told CNN's Jake Tapper during an interview on CNN’s "State of the Union": "President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation. Trump knows that it’s changing and that the U.S. has to be responsible for it and that’s what we’re going to do. Just because the U.S. got out of a club [Obama’s Paris Agreement] doesn't mean we aren’t going to care about the environment."
  • EU Will Ignore White House And Work Directly With US States On Paris Agreement

    The US is slowly withdrawing from the Paris agreement, but the rest of the world’s not having it. Last week, the European Union and China released a joint statement declaring their intentions to move on with the Agreement with or without America. They were clearly referring to just the Executive Branch, however, as now they’ve decided to work with US states and cities that are keen on cutting their carbon footprint by going over the President’s weirdly coiffed head. “Strong transatlantic ties are far more important and far more durable than the latest unfortunate decisions of the new administration,” EU...
  • Vatican : Trump’s point of view in Climate Change Agreement is as stupid as saying ‘Earth is Flat’

    Liberty Fighters UK ^ | June 3, 2017
    Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris agreement has attracted scathing comments from world leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs, and pretty much everyone who doesn’t want to do terrible damage to our planet. The decision has even drawn the wrath of the Vatican, which Trump visited just last week. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, made his critical remarks known in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica. “Thinking that we need and must rely on coal and oil is like claiming that the Earth is not round. It’s an absurdity brought forward only to make...

    It seems like as a minority millennial we have our plates so full of daily politics digesting it all is almost impossible. Despite the mountain of legislative missteps that have angered many African Americans our resolve is ancestral and ceaseless. The recent withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement is beyond alarming. As a woman of color living in a post-industrial city, I know all too well the degradation that unchecked industry imparts on living systems; both nature and people. Brown bodies breathe and ingest industrial toxins and pollutants, our food grows adjacent landfills and manufacturing plants all the while living...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shared her thoughts about the president's decision to quit the Paris climate agreement at a press conference on Capitol Hill Friday afternoon: PELOSI: When the Pope went to the White House he talked about the dangers of air pollution when he was here. And just last week the Pope met with President Trump and gave him a copy of his Encyclical "Laudato Si," which made the case for strong urgent action to halt the climate crisis. The Pope wrote, "The climate is a common good belonging to all and meant for all." The bible tells...

    Wall Street continued its lament of President Trump’s exit of the Paris climate agreement Friday — with Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein taking to Twitter again. “Leadership helps” the US, Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein wrote in a bizarre, emoji-heavy tweet, fretting that America might lose its profile on the world stage. “Our language is dominant; $ global; [world] talent comes. Bad if lost. Consider w/ making policy on enviro, trade, defense, etc.”(continued)

    This week, President Trump announced that the United States is pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord. The move was widely denounced. Former President Barack Obama, who unilaterally committed the US to the accord without seeking the consent of the US Senate, denounced Trump's action as "a betrayal of the future" and called for state and local governments to ignore Trump's stance and "independently implement the agreement." California Governor Jerry Brown (D) followed Obama's advice and announced that "California will sign a separate climate treaty with China. I cannot remain passive and allow an insane and deviate President Trump to...

    The head of the United Nations on Tuesday warned the United States against leaving the Paris climate deal, saying other countries would fill a “void” if President Trump decides to step away from the landmark agreement. “If one country decides to leave a void, I can guarantee someone else will occupy it,” Secretary-General António Guterres said during an event at New York University on Tuesday. Guterres warned that international adversaries such as China and Russia could step into a global leadership role if Trump backs off the climate commitments made by former President Obama under the Paris agreement. Guterres noted...

    Scientists apparently can't predict where forests are right now, but weather patterns one hundred years from now, no problem. Some things were never suitable for a 'free market' and CO2 is one of them People are willing to set up a two trillion dollar global market to read carbon, but their carbon models are so primitive that giant ‘oops’ moments are now happening on a regular basis reports Joanne Nova. A Yale-led study in 2015 estimated that there are more than 3 trillion trees on Earth, about seven and a half times more than some previous estimates. Previously, the only...

    Feminist icon Gloria Steinem made an impassioned plea for preserving and extending women's right to abortion, calling it "a powerful and necessary remedy in the fight against sexual injustice and global warming. Nothing is worse for the planet than more people. Interdicting the creation of more people is crucial if we are to avert a holocaust." As Steinem sees it, men force women into bearing children. "Considering the toll it takes on a woman's body, no woman in her right mind would willingly submit to childbirth," she contended. "Add to this the tremendous sacrifice of free time that must be...

[ Concerning CO2 levels and heating on Venus, Mars and Earth ] CO2 has it's limits as a green house gas and it is a very low pressure, compared to Venus which is a very large pressure of CO2. Of course on earth CO2 was at over 1900 PPM during the Jurassic period but somehow dinosaurs were not running around on fire for some reason, of course plants loved that environment, which is...

    “Climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth" Don’t you hate being called a ‘denier?” Me neither. In fact, I view this appellation as an affirmation of my own independent scepticism, a divergent path from that taken by the herd. In today’s” legacy media” every weather phenomenon is seen as an indication of climate change, or global warming, as it was once called until facts rendered that term inoperative. Recently I noticed a story on the Weather Network about an enormous crack in Greenland’s Peterman glacier seen by a NASA satellite, possibly caused by wait for it… warmer ocean waters. In...
  • We are STILL in an ICE AGE!

    04/29/2017 11:12:05 AM PDT · by GraceG · 63 replies
    The Quaternary glaciation, also known as the Pleistocene glaciation or the current ice age, is a series of glacial events separated by interglacial events during the Quaternary period from 2.58 Ma (million years ago) to present. In popular culture, there is often reference to "the next ice age".[24] Technically, because Earth is already in an ice age at present, this usually refers to the next glacial period (because the Earth is currently in an interglacial period).

    Say goodbye to so-called "global warming." If the huge amounts of snowfall that buried the Sierra this past winter continue, we will soon witness the comeback of Tahoe glacier This is not as far-fetched as you may think. In fact, if history is any guide it is inevitable. Not only inevitable, the process may have already begun. California’s Squaw Valley ski resort, just west of Lake Tahoe, has been buried beneath more than 58 feet of snowfall this season. That’s enough snow to completely cover a five-story building.

    Bill Nye, known for his 1990’s science kid’s show who has since become an outspoken advocate on “climate change,” accused CNN of doing a “disservice” to its audience on Saturday by having a real scientist on their network to discuss climate change. The CNN “New Day Saturday” panel, which included Nye and William Happer, a physicist at Princeton University,” became heated after Happer said the climate change that Nye talks about is a “myth.” “There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath.
