    Ten of the world’s largest food production companies sent a letter to the U.S. Congress on Thursday, encouraging them to take action on climate change. The letter was signed by the chief executive officers from Unilever, Mars, Kellogg, General Mills, Nestle, New Belgium Brewing, Ben & Jerry’s, Clif Bar, Stonyfield Farm, and Dannon. “The challenge presented by climate change will require all of us – government, civil society and business – to do more with less. For companies like ours, that means producing more food on less land using fewer natural resources. If we don’t take action now, we risk...

    Scientists have discovered a hitherto unknown cooling process which may pose a serious threat to man-made global warming theory. According to a study by the Institute of Catalysis and Environment in Lyon (IRCELYON, CNRS / University Lyon 1) and the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), the oceans are producing unexpectedly large quantities of isoprene – a volatile organic compound (VOC) – which is known to have a cooling effect on climate. Isoprene is a gas that is formed by both the vegetation and the oceans. It is very important for the climate because this gas can form particles that...

It’s just the latest evidence that we are, indeed, on course for a record-breaking warm year in 2015. Yet, if you look closely, there’s one part of the planet that is bucking the trend.

Congress barely got a mention. The Paris accord, like the Iran deal before it, will be strictly an executive agreement, given that Obama wouldn’t have the votes to pass anything in either chamber. Prospects seem to have improved for getting a deal after last week’s agreement with China, which has announced plans to implement a cap-and-trade scheme and push...

    The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on 18 August 2015 proposed regulations to reduce emissions of methane. These regulations would be the first to directly restrict methane emissions by the oil and gas industry; they build on a 2012 rule that sought to curb volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to extract natural gas. Combined, the two regulations could reduce the oil and gas sector’s methane emissions by up to 30% by 2025, compared with 2012 levels, EPA says. The proposed EPA regs are part of a larger effort by the White House to reduce national methane emissions...

    The science on global warming is settled. In fact, so settled that 20 climate scientists are asking President Barack Obama to prosecute people who disagree with them on the science behind man-made global warming. Scientists from several universities and research centers even asked Obama to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to prosecute groups that “have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change, as a means to forestall America’s response to climate change.” RICO was a law designed to take down organized crime syndicates, but scientists now want it to be used against...

    A group of 20 university professors are hoping the federal government will try to prosecute climate change skeptics. The group sent a letter to the White House earlier this month comparing those who are a bit doubtful regarding man-made global warming to the tobacco industry. We appreciate that you are making aggressive and imaginative use of the limited tools available to you in the face of a recalcitrant Congress. One additional tool – recently proposed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse – is a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) investigation of corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the...

    EMP or ElectroMagnetic Pulse is a disturbance that affects and sometimes destroys electrical and electronic devices. SNIP Much is uncertain about an EMP attack. It might not be as bad as the worst case. It might turn out that our infrastructure is fairly resistant. We don’t know a lot because not enough testing has been done. We do know that relatively minor efforts at hardening could make a huge difference in national survival. Yet nothing is being done. SNIP For some reason best explained by psychiatrists, we are spending vast sums, potentially trillions, to reduce CO2 emissions in order to...

    The Arctic mosquito, a larger, furrier version of the ubiquitous pests, are getting a longer breeding season as Arctic ponds warmed earlier in the year, researchers from Dartmouth have found. As a result, the Arctic mosquito, or Aedes nigripes, were in the air bothering humans and wildlife alike earlier in the season, according to a new study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences. "They absolutely will bite people," lead author Lauren Culler told ABC News today. "They’re active at any time of day. If you’re in the Arctic in the middle of mosquito season, there...

    A global warming activist named Megyn asked Trump what he'd do "to reduce pollution which is causing climate change." Or something like that. A train wreck ensues. ("Calm down fellas") By the end, Trump basically answers her quesiton by saying "Oh, you believe, how cute. Next question."

    It’s said that the world is run by those who show up. That can be a rather exclusive group, I learned, last weekend, as the only member of the media to attend an anti-Harper press conference by David Suzuki. The result? An unplanned interview with a man who evades opposition. Suzuki was in my hometown of London, Ont., campaigning against a Conservative incumbent under the auspices of Leadnow, a foreign-funded “independent advocacy group” trying to leverage strategic voting by the left to oust Stephen Harper come October. I had requested a formal interview with Suzuki via one of his myriad...

    WASHINGTON -- The summer of 2015 was the warmest on record in 135 years, federal scientists said on Thursday. The period from June through August this year registered “the highest” average temperature across land and ocean surfaces on the planet, according to data released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. During the three-month time span, global land and ocean temperatures jumped up 1.53 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average, beating the record set in 2014 by .20 degrees Fahrenheit. The graph below, from the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Administration, illustrates how much higher temperatures are than in...
