Frequent-flying hypocrites: A LABOR senator has questioned Climate Commissioner Tim Flannery’s decision to snub a budget estimates…
Maybe not: It’s tempting to assume that climate change is responsible for an increase in the number devastating tornadoes, like those that ravaged Joplin, Missouri, in 2011, and Hattiesburg, Mississippi, in February. But if these tragedies are indeed becoming more common, it’s mainly because of population growth. Sixty years ago, yesterday’s tornado might not have […]
By Martin Weitzman No one can say with any assurance what the dollar value of damages would be from the highly uncertain climate changes that might accompany a planet earth that is steadily warming. Paul Solman: Are headlines trumpeting...Show More Summary
The good news: Obama finally got rid of the preposterous moonbat ideologue Steven Chu as Energy Secretary. The bad news: Replacement Ernest Moniz is a preposterous moonbat ideologue. “Let me make it very clear that there is no ambiguity...Show More Summary
Screw floods and other weather disasters, how is global warming going to change the way wine is made? --- See more posts by Alex Balk 0 comments
This morning I heard that a group of President Obama’s supporters are doing tweets to “Call Out the Climate Change Deniers.” An excellent project in my view but… What had me gnashing my teeth was the report went on to describe the effort as difficult in political terms because it was framed as Climate Change [...]
I love raging scientific controversies. I am not talking about vaccines and autism, global warming, evolution, or homeopathy – these are not actual scientific controversies. They are political controversies intruding onto science. I prefer nerdy scientific debates that have insignificant political implications. Show More Summary
About 55.5 million years ago, geologically rapid emission of a large volume of greenhouse gases at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary (PETM) led to global warming of about 5oC, severe ocean acidification, and widespread extinction of microscopic organisms living on the deep-sea floor (foraminifera). A study of survivors of the extinction provides unique insight into the response […]
Experts predict that average surface temperatures will rise by 2-40 throughout the 21st century
A key threshold measuring the march of global warming was crossed recently, when the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere topped 400 parts per million. On 10 May scientists announced that 400.03ppm had been measured at a climate-observing station in Hawaii that is often used as a benchmark. Show More Summary
Practically everything you have been told by the mainstream scientific community and the media about the alleged detriments of greenhouse gases, and particularly carbon dioxide, appears to be false, according to new data compiled by NASA's Langley Research Center. Show More Summary
On Sunday, I wrote about the real scandal of the century that the media is ignoring or misreporting — unchecked global warming (see “Worse Than Watergate“). Now I have a name for this growing scandal — No-Water-Gate. It is increasingly clear that the gravest climate threat to the most people in the coming decades will [...]
As a result of global warming and high increase in population density, people are urged to ensure that their homes as well as their commercial buildings are eco-friendly. Eco friendly designs are highly emphasized upon due to their numerous benefits both to the environment and humankind.
Let's pretend that there's someone with a gun to your head, and he gives you a hard quantum mechanics problem with two answers, only one of which is correct.
As global warming dumps more and more energy into our atmosphere it’s changing our weather from something that used to spoil the family picnic to something that relocate your home on surprisingly short notice. While you may not be able...Show More Summary
In the tropics at heights more than 10 miles above the surface, the prevailing winds alternate between strong easterlies and strong westerlies roughly every other year. This slow heartbeat in the tropical upper atmosphere, referred to...Show More Summary
Tom Nelson captures this delicious irony, apparently it isn’t a travesty any more, it’s the sun. Has Global Warming Stalled? | Royal Meteorological Society [Trenberth] “Warming” really means heating, and so it can be manifested in many ways. Rising surface … Continue reading ?
The winds of the quasibiennial oscillation in the tropical upper atmosphere have greatly weakened at some altitudes over the last six decades, according to a new study. The finding is consistent with computer model projections of how the upper atmosphere responds to global warming induced by increased greenhouse gas concentrations.
The Oklahoma tornadoes are already being politicized with Democrats blaming Republicans and policies related to global warming. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Oklahoma tornado was politicized by the Daily Show co-creator early on, making bad jokes like, “This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives,” and “How long [...]Show More Summary
SkepticalScience recently produced a YouTube video which claimed to show that the rate of global warming has not slowed in recent years. See their post here, which states: This replicates the result of a study by Foster and Rahmstorf (2011) … Continue reading ?
