  • Global warming adding to Antarctic ice, experts say (Liberal Logic 101)

    WASHINGTON -- The ice goes on seemingly forever in a white flat landscape, stretching farther than ever before. And yet, that spreading ice may be a cockeyed signal of man-made climate change, scientists say. This is Antarctica, the polar opposite of the Arctic.

    Watts Up With That ^ | Oct 11, 2012 | Ira Glickstein
    Environmentalists have promoted the theory that human civilization is the main cause of global warming. They argue that Governments worldwide must take immediate drastic action to prevent a catastrophe. The chain of proof in their human-caused climate catastrophe theory is broken in at least six places: -------------------------------------------------- Environmental fallacy #1: Scientists have an accurate measure of warming since 1880. Environmental fallacy #2: Human activities, primarily fossil fuels, are the main cause. Environmental fallacy #3: Scientists can accurately predict future warming scenarios. Environmental fallacy #4: Human-caused warming will lead to an environmental disaster. Environmental fallacy #5: “Green” energy and conservation can...

    Snow has fallen across a large part of NSW and the ACT, despite it being over a month into spring. There have been reports of snow in the Blue Mountains and Southern Highlands, while Canberra has received 10 centimetres. Yesterday, South Australia witnessed a once-in-a-century October snowfall. Sydney Ferries has cancelled the Manly service due to the weather, and the Great Western Highway is closed in both directions at Wentworth Falls. Scroll down to the bottom of the page for photos and reports of the snowfall from ABC listeners. The Bureau of Meteorology says the snow is a result of...

    Obama: Carbon ‘Eating Out Planet,’ ‘A Threat to Our Children’s Future’ By Fred Lucas October 11, 2012 (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama warned his supporters about the threat of global warming and vowed that more money to subsidize green energy firms would prevent it. “By the way, yes, my plan will reduce the carbon pollution that is eating our planet because climate change is not a hoax,” Obama said at a campaign rally at the Bank United Arena at the University of Miami. “More droughts and hurricanes and wildfires, that’s not a joke. That’s a threat to our children’s future,...

    (CNSNews.com) – Green energy is going orange for Halloween, as the U.S. Energy Department offers downloadable pumpkin-carving patterns on its website. The "Energy-ween" designs include a windmill, solar panel, and compact fluorescent light bulb. “As the fall weather continues to cool, you’re probably already thinking of ways to save energy and maximize efficiency inside your home,” wrote April Saylor, a Digital Outreach Strategist for the Energy Department, in a recent blog post.

    In an interview with the New Yorker, President Obama said that in his second term the most important policy he could address was climate change.  Given the damage he has done to fossil fuels in his first term (and the vast sums he has squandered on the will o the wisps of sun and wind), one shudders to think what is in store for our energy supply if he turns full attention to the subject.  Senator John McCain, his defeated Republican rival, was also a true believer in the global warming apocalypse, the notion that man-made global warming, if unchecked,...

    NASA's Mars rover Curiosity is enjoying some nice, warm weather on the Red Planet — and spring hasn't even come to its landing site yet. Curiosity's onboard weather station, which is called the Remote Environment Monitoring Station (REMS), has measured air temperatures as high as 43 degrees Fahrenheit (6 degrees Celsius) in the afternoon. And temperatures have climbed above freezing during more than half of the Martian days, or sols, since REMS was turned on, scientists said. These measurements are a bit unexpected, since it's still late winter at Gale Crater, the spot 4.5 degrees south of the Martian equator...

    Telegraph - UK ^ | October 5, 2012 | Rowena Mason,
    In its strongest ever warning, Ofgem said there may have to be “controlled disconnections” of homes and businesses in the middle of this decade because Britain has not done enough to make sure it has enough electricity. The regulator's new analysis reveals the risk of power-cuts is almost 50 per cent in 2015 if a very cold winter causes high demand for electricity. It predicts Britain will face power shortages because old coal and oil plants are being forced to shut down under the European Union’s environmental regulations. This will partly be replaced by wind farms, but they are less...

    (Reuters) - A 200-year period covering the heyday of both the Roman Empire and China's Han dynasty saw a big rise in greenhouse gases, according to a study that challenges the U.N. view that man-made climate change only began around 1800. A record of the atmosphere trapped in Greenland's ice found the level of heat-trapping methane rose about 2,000 years ago and stayed at that higher level for about two centuries. Methane was probably released during deforestation to clear land for farming and from the use of charcoal as fuel, for instance to smelt metal to make weapons, lead author...

    The U.S. military's newspaper, Stars & Stripes, recently reported that the Pentagon is buying Chevy Volts in a 1,500 electric-vehicle purchase, as part of the Defense Department's "green initiatives," which seek to reduce the country's dependence on foreign energy sources. A recent Congressional Budget Office study challenged the assumption that electric vehicles have any impact on such dependence, prompting the question of why the government is spending money this way. Against the backdrop of the attack on our embassy in Benghazi, and looming embassy security cuts due to sequestration, it appears politics and ideology are trumping common sense.A little poking...

  • New science: SEAS WILL RISE due to CO2 ... but not for centuries

    The Register ^ | 3rd October 2012 09:03 GMT | Lewis Page
    A new, first-of-its-kind comprehensive scientific analysis has shown that there is little to fear from rising sea levels driven by global warming. The likelihood is that the 21st century will see rises much like those of the 20th, and even in the worst possible case sea levels in 2100 will be far below those foreseen by alarmists. There's a catch, of course: on a timescale of many centuries, serious alarmist-type rises in sea levels are to be expected. Even if humanity ceases all carbon emissions right now, in the year 3000AD the seas will have risen by 1.1m, according to...

    Climate change campaigner Al Gore denied Australian firestorm footage AN Australian filmmaker refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore - to use in Mr Gore's climate presentations - because the event was unrelated to climate change. Chris Tangey from Alice Springs Film and Television recorded the phenomenon on Curtin Springs Station, 360km southwest of Alice Springs, while scouting locations for a film. The footage has been an international sensation, reported widely in global media. In an email exchange with Mr Gore's office, Mr Tangey said using the footage in a climate-change framework would be...

    Internal documentation and testimony from sources within Abound show that the company was selling a faulty, underperforming product, and may have mislead lenders at one point in order to keep itself afloat. “Our solar modules worked as long as you didn’t put them in the sun,” an internal source told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The company knew its panels were faulty prior to obtaining taxpayer dollars, according to sources, but kept pushing product out the door in order to meet Department of Energy goals required for their $400 million loan guarantee.

    General Motors reported that it sold 2,851 Chevy Volts in September. The number is sure to be touted as a great success, even though the annualized rate of sale is still well below initial sales goals for the vehicle and no where near what conventionally-powered, mainstream cars sell. What is sure to be less publicized by the media is that the majority of the Volt "sales" were heavily subsidized leases that are costing taxpayers millions of dollars. GM spokesman, Jim Cain, told me that a full two thirds of Volt sales were leases. Backing out leases and fleet sales, about...

    Fish species are expected to shrink in size by up to 24% because of global warming, say scientists. Researchers modelled the impact of rising temperatures on more than 600 species between 2001 and 2050. Warmer waters could decrease ocean oxygen levels and significantly reduce fish body weight. The scientists argue that failure to control greenhouse gas emissions will have a greater impact on marine ecosystems than previously thought.
