Island Shrinking by Global Warming… But for Over 100 Years?

Global warming acolytes have a favorite image, that of Al Gore’s fabulist tale of 20 foot waves engulfing our coast lines. Invoking that awesome image, the L.A. Times published a story last month that is supposed to be just another global warming scare piece.

It’s the Sun, Stupid

When the international global warming alarm-ocracy gathers for its annual convention on the balmy island of Bali next week, is there any chance that the delegates will look up at the big yellow ball in the sky and ask, “Could it be the Sun, stupid?”

UN Climate Distractions

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) just issued the final installment of its year-long scare-the-pants-off-the public assessment of global warming.

The great climate change extortion racket

Anyone who still believes that the Kyoto Accord is about actually reducing so-called greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere is in dire need of therapy.  Kyoto is now and has always been about redistributing wealth.  Recent statements by countries such as Brazil and India have confirmed this to be the case as developing nations are taking the position that climate change was caused by industrialized countries and should therefore be remediated by those countries.

Ancient Earth not matching up

Everyone loves a good mystery. There’s nothing quite as good as sitting down, and trying to work out whether it actually was the butler, or if poor Jeeves was simply framed. But mysteries come in all shapes and sizes, as can be attested to by researchers from the University of Michigan and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Batten down the hatches – Climate fear-mongering to get worse

The Commonwealth conference just completed in Uganda provides a preview of the rhetoric we can expect from delegates at next week’s United Nations Climate Change Conference on the island of Bali, Indonesia.

Britain’s Prince Charles, now a devoted climate campaigner, told the Commonwealth conference, “Climate change has become the greatest challenge facing mankind… It has become a question literally of survival for Commonwealth members like Tuvalu and Kiribati.”

The siren song of environmentalism

It seems the more information that surfaces about the UN’s ineptitude, the more hysterically individuals are buying into the UN’s warnings about climate change, albeit no definitive evidence of the deleterious effects of this phenomenon have as yet been identified.  Aside from a few unusually warm summers, which were also evident throughout the 1930s, no one has drowned or starved or lost a home as a direct result of global warming.  No islands have been inundated, no flash flooding has occurred in the northern latitudes and 15 minutes ago as I stepped outside the temperature was still below the freezing mark.

Global Warming’s Bottom Line

Sen. Hillary Clinton last week proposed to require that publicly-owned companies disclose to shareholders the financial impacts of global warming. Financial reality, however, is already overtaking the financial fantasy of climate alarmists.

Loons and Bears Versus Eskimos and Oil

“A petition seeking Endangered Species Act protection for a rare loon that breeds in Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve has been accepted for review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service” noted a May 29, 2007 Associated Press article. “Conservationists hope an eventual listing of the yellow-billed loon will curb petroleum development in the 23-million acre reserve that covers much of Alaska’s North Slope.”

Global Warming’s Senseless Consensus

Is there a “consensus” on global warming among the scientists participating in the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)? To find out, I conducted the first-ever survey of scientists participating in the most recent IPCC report.

Hurricane Detection Gains an Ally

Weather is tough to predict at the best of times, with Mother Nature not necessarily bringing the human need to know what clothes to wear in to her equations. But it gets even trickier when trying to predict hurricanes.

NASA Sees Arctic Ocean Circulation Do an About-Face

In a time and place where the slightest mention of ‘global warming’ is likely to speak an all out brawl, one has to be careful with the research they present. That’s not to say they have to lie or cover it up, but they have to be oh so very clear in what they’re saying.

Yellowstone won’t erupt… yet

Whenever a scientist comes out and says “The bottom line is…” and warns off the likelihood of a cataclysmic event of some sort, you better believe there is a good story somewhere behind that dismissal.

First stage of NEPTUNE Installation Completed

The world of scientific exploration is nothing short of fantastic and amazing. Each month we are confronted with new discoveries, and reports of scientists pushing the boundaries of human knowledge. NEPTUNE—the North-East Pacific Time-series Undersea Networked Experiments—is another of these amazing attempts to push human knowledge further. And, as of Wednesday the 7th of November, its first phase has been successfully installed.

The deceit behind global warming

No one can deny that in recent years the need to “save the planet” from global warming has become one of the most pervasive issues of our time. As Tony Blair’s chief scientific adviser, Sir David King, claimed in 2004, it poses “a far greater threat to the world than international terrorism”, warning that by the end of this century the only habitable continent left will be Antarctica.
