  • Another Enviro Scientist Turns Global Warming Skeptic

    Germany’s envirowhackos have gone incendiary, as a former apostle of the climate change religion, Fritz Vahrenholt, has coauthored a new, best-selling book that casts doubts on the shoddy science of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The mean greenies in Germany are so hot at Vahrenholt that they probably ought to charge themselves a carbon tax, or buy on offsetting credit, or just kick back and relax with a cold drink on a furry polar bear rug in front of a big log fire.“The left wing German online TAZ here has a weekend article called Climate Skeptics Are Like...

    If you want a prototypical example of how climate science has ceased being true science and instead become little more than an ideological battleground, look no further than a study released yesterday showing that, contrary to earlier claims, global warming has had zero effect on the depth of the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada mountain range...

    We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us: but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood. God’s LOVE and Ours. 1 John 4:6 The second biggest threat to America’s freedom is the Global Warming scam. This week FirstEnergy Corp announced it is closing six coal fired plants since they cannot afford to meet the EPA’s global warming standards. Never mind there is no manmade global warming or greenhouse gasses the EPA is using it as an excuse to destroy the...

    The severe cold weather currently gripping Eastern Europe has now spread to Italy and as far south as Turkey. As many as 80 people have died, mainly in Ukraine and Poland, as the death freeze settles over the continent. The Ukraine has suffered the most fatalities as emergency ministries confirmed 43 people had perished in minus-28 degree temperatures. Forecasters have confirmed that this area of high pressure has come from Siberia.

    Most of Southern Louisiana is currently covered by rain showers that are headed eastward to New Orleans. The concern should be that by the end of the game tonight severe weather may be over the Superdome. With all the probable drinking and celebrating, this may make for a bad combination. It will not be Chamber of Commerce weather for this event. This weather was on the Texas border this morning, and has been moving Eastward all day...

    Climate change issue slows analysis of extreme weatherBy Justin Gillis New York Times Updated: 12/25/2011 09:43:18 PM CST At the end of one of the most bizarre weather years in U.S. history, climate research stands at a crossroads. Scientists say they could, in theory, do a better job of answering the question "Did global warming have anything to do with it?" after extreme weather events like the drought in Texas and the floods in New England. But efforts to put out prompt reports on the causes of extreme weather are languishing. Chief among the difficulties scientists face: the hostile political...
  • Methane Bubbling to Arctic Ocean Surface in Giant Plumes

    Here's a breaking news story about a huge discovery of methane gas reserves. This methane is burping up into plumes from the arctic ocean into the atmosphere from holes in the ice that are 3,000 feet across. Russian scientists say they have discovered thousands of these holes. According to Igor Semiletov of the Russian Academy of Sciences, methane gas is 20 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. "We carried out checks at about 115 stationary points and discovered methane fields of a fantastic scale — I think on a scale not seen before." With these methane bubbling holes having expanded...

    Here's a breaking news story about a huge discovery of methane gas reserves. The bad news is this methane is burping up into plumes from the arctic ocean into the atmosphere from holes in the ice that are 3,000 feet across. Russian scientists say they have discovered thousands of these holes emitting methane plumes from the arctic shelf. According to Igor Semiletov of the Russian Academy of Sciences, methane gas is 20 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. Semiletov has studied these methane plumes for years but most of that time they were only about 30 meters in diameter. Semiletov...

    The worst storm in 4 years has hit the United Kingdom with gales of 130 mph hitting Scotland. The nation’s weather service — the Met Office — issued its first red warning of the year as cold, ice and snow batter the British. As Fred Sanford would say, this is the big one, Elizabeth. It is worse than Hurricane Katia, which hit in September. From the Met Office: It is believed to be Britain’s worst storm since the 100mph January 2007 gales which hit Wales and England and killed nine people. Scotland battened down the hatches with school, offices and...

    A strong storm system that produced several suspected tornadoes hit the Southeast on Wednesday, damaging dozens of homes and buildings. At least 15 people were injured in Mississippi. Suspected tornadoes were reported in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Four homes were damaged in western Alabama, about 60 miles southwest of Tuscaloosa. It was the worst bout of weather for that state since about 250 people were killed during a tornado outbreak in April. < SNIP >

    - UN climate scientists warns of weather extremes - Global warming to create "weather on steroids" - Human settlement in some areas could be wiped out The assessment is the most comprehensive probe yet by the 194-nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) into the impact of climate change on extreme weather events. A 20-page draft "summary for policymakers" obtained by AFP says in essence that global warming will create weather on steroids. It also notes that these amped-up events - cyclones, heat waves, diluvian rains, drought - will hit the world unevenly. Subject to modification, the draft summary will...

    What started as a humid summer-like day in Columbia on Nov. 11, 1911, ended with a howling blizzard that brought a temperature drop of 54 degrees. That day produced the greatest storm recorded in Missouri's weather history, now called the Great Blue Norther. Winds blew wagons off bridges, and more than 50 people across the Midwest froze to death. Pigeons fell dead on the sidewalk, frogs were iced into ponds, and pigs were pummeled by hail. “At 2 o’clock the temperature was 82. By 6 o’clock it was 28, a drop of more than 50 degrees,” the Missourian reported in...

    At Watts Up With That, data from the National Climatic Data Center are reviewed. The results are quite startling. Every region of the continental United States has shown a cooling trend during the winter from 2001 to the present, and five of the nine regions have also had a cooling trend during the summer. With respect to annual mean temperature, only one of nine regions–the Northeast–has gotten warmer; the other eight have gotten cooler.

    Winds near hurricane force of 74 mph were expected to generate seas as high as 25 feet in the northern Bering Sea, forecasters said. The winds were expected to raise sea levels as much as 9 feet in the Norton Sound. Those levels combined with the high waves were expected to cause significant coastal erosion and major flooding. The winds may also push sea ice on shore, adding to the dangers, NWS forecasters said.

    Look at this weekend’s Halloween snowstorm. Headlines across the U.S.A. called it “historic.” Historic because it dumped record snowfall on at least 20 cities from Maryland to Maine. Historic because it was the most snow – and the earliest – in many areas since the end of the Civil War. And we’re not talking mere tenths-of-an-inch here. This snowfall shattered the old records, it obliterated them.

In the northern Plains, northern Rockies, and western Great Lakes, folks can expect frigid cold temperatures while those in the southern and eastern United States will experience above average temperatures. Near normal temperatures are predicted for the Midwest and far western parts of the country.

    Climate experts: Expect more weather disastersNovember 1, 2011 7:35 AM (AP) WASHINGTON - Freakish weather disasters — from the sudden October snowstorm in the Northeast U.S. to the record floods in Thailand — are striking more often. And global warming is likely to spawn more similar weather extremes at a huge cost, says a draft summary of an international climate report obtained by The Associated Press. The final draft of the report from a panel of the world's top climate scientists paints a wild future for a world already weary of weather catastrophes costing billions of dollars. The report says...
