Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball It is time to revisit the emails leaked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia. The first 1000 emails were released in November 2009 just prior to the Climate Conference of the Parties (COP) 15 scheduled for Copenhagen. They effectively stopped political plans for a replacement of the…
The United States is at an environmental crossroads, states a new report. Climate change in the Arctic, urban growth in Phoenix, West Coast fisheries affected by El Niño, land-use change in New England, nutrients in watersheds in the Midwest--the report finds society is facing a wide array of environmental challenges.
Diverse agroecosystems are more resilient to variable weather from climate change, researchers say, upon concluding through study that across the United States, there has been a loss of crop diversity on farms.

A lot of people thought that the scandal at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in 2009 would end the political/academic fundraising schemes that center around the theory that anthropogenic global warming will cause imminent disaster. It didn’t turn out that way. AGW was such a perfect narrative for motivating left-wing activists/donors that no...
Arizona State University researchers say in coming decades a changing climate will pose challenges to operations of power generation facilities, especially in the Western United States. They recommend what should be done to ensure reliable electricity supplies as the region gets hotter and drier. One suggestion: More use of renewable energy sources.
From: Arizona State University TEMPE, Arizona — Electricity generation and distribution infrastructure in the Western United States must be “climate-proofed” to diminish the risk of future power shortages, according to research by two Arizona State University engineers. Show More Summary
When countries meet in Paris for the United Nations climate talks later this year, their representatives will come armed with the best data, research and ideas on how to reach a climate agreement and avert catastrophic climate change. But a new report from Rhodium Group, commissioned by Environmental Defense Fund, shows that countries have so far been […]

Guest Opinion: Dr. Tim Ball The 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “Hockey Stick” graph produced solutions for three facts challenging the claims of key IPCC climate scientists at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU). The problems appeared in Figure 7c in the 1990 First Assessment Report (FAR) (Figure 1). The three problems it created…
