    The Washington Post ^ | November 13, 2018 | By Tom Toles, Editorial cartoonist
    There are tentative efforts being made to put a few people on Mars to try and survive in a bunker under constant high radiation in sub-frigid temperatures in an atmosphere 100 times thinner than Earth’s. If we make good progress on this endeavor, we will be able to evacuate the population of Earth into space around the year Never. But this is apparently our plan to deal with climate change, because we don’t have any other one. Because the best current estimates are that we need to start significant action on the problem right now, and what we see is...

    From heat waves to severe storms and wildfires, the effects of climate change are visible all around us - and new research suggests that the impact of a warming world extends all the way to the bottom of the ocean. A study published Oct. 29 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that high levels of carbon dioxide - the heat-trapping greenhouse gas that is a key contributor to Earth's warming climate - have made parts of the North Atlantic Ocean and the Southern Ocean so acidic that the chalky white mineral that makes up the...
  • Scientists behind ocean warming study say errors were made

    Scientists behind a study that found the world's oceans were warming faster than previously believed have said their work contained errors, which means they cannot reach conclusions with such certainty. The issues "do not invalidate the study's methodology or the new insights into ocean biogeochemistry on which it is based," said co-author Ralph Keeling. But they do mean the scientists must redo their calculations. Since publication, two problems had come, Keeling said, one of them related to incorrectly treating systematic errors in the measurements of oxygen. "We expect the combined effect of these two corrections to have a small impact...

    New York Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the most prominent of the progressive millennials elected to Congress in the midterm elections, joined a protest led by left-wing groups Justice Democrats and the Sunrise Movement outside House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's personal office calling for House Democrats to put forward a climate plan. Protesters called for Democrats, who will have a substantial majority in the House next year, to create a select committee to develop a plan to switch to 100 percent renewable energy. The demonstration was spurred by a recent United Nations report that showed that the world only has 12 years to limit global warming to manageable...

    “The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr. Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on September 27, 2018. The lack of sunspots on our sun could bring about record cold temperatures, and perhaps even a mini ice age. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, the editor of spaceweather.com. “The bad news,” according to Phillips, is: “It also delays the natural decay of space junk, resulting in a more cluttered environment around Earth.” “It could happen in a matter of months,” says Martin...

Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, editor of spaceweather.com.

To help track the latest developments, Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s...

    That sound practice grounded to a halt when the most radical environmentalists took over Every governor has signed regretful legislation, or made a disastrous pardon he or she would like a chance to re-do. California’s whacky outgoing Democrat governor has spent the last eight years trying to convince the people of California that we are to blame for droughts, wildfires and “extreme weather,” and that climate change is an existential threat to the California way of life. Showing no regrets, Gov. Jerry Brown calls the people “freeloaders,” and “deniers,” and has mocked our “little green lawns.” Brown even spitefully signed...

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...

    A federal appeals court in Oregon on Thursday granted a motion from the Trump administration for a temporary stay in a lawsuit brought forward by a group of young people who argue that the government is violating their rights by not adequately battling climate change. The Associated Press reported Thursday that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a 15-day stay in the case for either it or the Supreme Court to consider a motion by the Trump administration to dismiss the case. "As set forth fully in the accompanying memorandum of law, a stay is warranted because...Defendants will be...

    Environmentalists were hoping to score a huge victory in Washington state with a statewide tax on CO2 emissions. Alas, even liberals in Washington don't believe climate change is that big a threat. Before the election, glowing stories in the press talked about Washington "taking up the fight" on climate change after President Donald Trump dropped out of the Paris climate deal. The state would make history. It would be a "bellwether," and would start a trend across the country. The initiative proposed a $15 tax on each ton of carbon emissions in the state starting in 2020, with the tax...
  • A mixed vote on global warming: Ballot measures lose, but Democrats gain power

    NBC "News" ^ | November 8, 2018 | By James Rainey
    Environmentalists lost high-profile ballot fights this week to combat climate change and promote conservation. But they took heart that new Democratic control of the U.S. House of Representatives and several governorships could pave the way for future victories against fossil fuels and global warming. The biggest loss came in Washington state, where a measure to tax carbon dioxide emissions lost 56 percent to 44 percent, despite backing from a broad coalition of Democratic, environmental, union and Native American groups. The measure's lopsided defeat squashed hopes that the tax would become a model for other states to raise the cost, and...

    A new survey shows that while healthcare and the economy are "very important" to voters, the issues of climate change and alleged Russia collusion in the 2016 election are at the bottom of the list for voters in terms of importance. In the poll, Gallup asked, "How important will each of the following issues be to your vote for Congress this year?"

    Science Daily ^ | November 5, 2018 | Source: Universitat Rovira
    A collective-risk dilemma experiment with members of the public in Barcelona has shown that people are more or less likely to contribute money to fighting climate change depending on their how wealthy they are. And the results indicate that participants with fewer resources were prepared to contribute significantly more to the public good than wealthier people, sometimes up to twice as much. These are the principal findings of a study by researchers who measured how a group of individuals acted in the face of a common threat. To do so they designed a "lab-in-the-field" experiment involving more than 320 individuals...

    Earth's protective ozone layer is finally healing from damage caused by aerosol sprays and coolants, a new United Nations report said. The ozone layer had been thinning since the late 1970s. Scientist raised the alarm and ozone-depleting chemicals were phased out worldwide. As a result, the upper ozone layer above the Northern Hemisphere should be completely repaired in the 2030s and the gaping Antarctic ozone hole should disappear in the 2060s, according to a scientific assessment released Monday at a conference in Quito, Ecuador. The Southern Hemisphere lags a bit and its ozone layer should be healed by mid-century. "It's...

    The constant media refrain that man-caused global warming is dooming many small Pacific islands to sink beneath rising sea levels continues, even as science – and in one case the former president of an "endangered" island – refutes the alarmists, as Andrew Holt of the Herald-Sun in Australia reports: [A] new paper by Virginie K. E. Duvat, of the Institut du Littoral et de l'Environnement, University of la Rochelle, France: A reanalysis of available data, which cover 30 Pacific and Indian Ocean atolls including 709 islands, reveals that no atoll lost land area and that 88.6% of islands were either stable or increased...

    Dartmouth College lecturer Mark Bray made the argument to abolish capitalism in a recent op-ed for Truthout, linking capitalism to the prioritizing of profit over the environment and everything else. The professor has previously donated half of the profits from his book chronicling Antifa to the organization, written an introduction to an Antifa comic book, and tweeted glowingly about Antifa flags made by kids at a summer camp. Dartmouth professor argued on Tuesday that "if we don't abolish capitalism, capitalism will abolish us."

    This week, icy blasts of change swept two continents. As unseasonably early winter storms dumped heavy rain and snow across Europe, Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, effectively stepped down as the leader of her party and irreparably weakened her ability to keep Europe on an even keel. That very same day, Brazil elected a far-right leader who is even Trumpier than US President Donald Trump. He believes Brazil's military regime, which ran the country in the 1970s and 1980s, didn't kill enough of its opponents and wants guns in the hands of citizens. "Weapons defend our freedoms" was a campaign...

    About 10 years ago the brand name global warming was changed to climate change. The reason was simple. The Earth was failing to warm. An additional benefit of the climate change slogan was that everything that goes wrong with the weather can be blamed on climate change, caused by burning fossil fuels. The 2012 hurricane Sandy, that flooded parts of New York and New Jersey, is routinely blamed on climate change. The great New England hurricane of 1938 struck the same area and was vastly worse, killing more than 600 persons. That could not be blamed on climate change caused...
