  • German Scientist Accused NASA of ‘Massive’ Temperature Alterations

    Cybercast News Service ^ | November 30, 2015 | 4:18 PM EST | Barbara Hollingsworth
    A German scientist has accused the National Aeronautics and Space Agency's (NASA) Goddard Institute of Space Studies (GISS) of altering temperature records between 2010 and 2012 to produce the illusion that the Earth has been warming since 1950. GISS datasets are used by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to document global warming. In a presentation at the 2012 EIKE Climate Conference in Germany, Professor Friedrich-Karl Ewert, a retired geologist and data expert from the University of Paderborn, said that he examined publicly available archived temperature records from 1,153 weather stations around the globe going back to 1881...

    Speaking at the bogus climate summit in Paris, President Obama ran way over the allotted time for his speech -- in part, it appeared, because TOTUS was a bit slow. In any case, once Obama reached the time allowed, the subtle chime that is a triple ring to signal that the time is up, rang. But POTUS kept on talking. Then it rang again. POTUS kept talking. More ringing. More talking. At one point, POTUS reached a point in his speech when he said, "Let's send that signal." As if on cue, the chime rang yet again. To no avail....

    If we have learned anything about legislation over the past fifty years, it's that pleasant-sounding legislative statements can be used by the courts and by the Executive Branch to spin complex and intrusive regulatory regimes. Title IX (sex discrimination in schools), the National Environmental Policy Act (environmental impact statements), Title VII (affirmative action), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (expansive and dangerous educational services for bad children) all took nicey-nice legislative language, which seemed innocuous at passage -- and used it to massively enhance the role of the courts and the Executive Branch. So what are we to make...

    Paris (AFP) - Global warming has triggered an array of apocalyptic scenarios for future generations, from worsening drought, storms and floods to melted ice sheets and rising seas.Now a new study, published Tuesday and coinciding with the UN climate talks in Paris, adds to the grim tableau: the risk that warming at the far end of the scale could rob our planet of oxygen. "We have identified another possible consequence of ... global warming that can potentially be more dangerous than all others," say a pair of scientists from Britain's University of Leicester.

No cartons of takeout -- instead, the gang fueled up after a long day of climate talks at L'Ambroisie, the three-Michelin-starred temple of gastronomie in the Marais neighborhood. Per the Michelin Guide, the ornately be-chandelier-ed dining room is known for "incomparable classicism and an immortal feast for the senses."

The pope, who wrote a major document on the environment last June, made the comment in an hour-long news conference aboard the plane returning him to Rome at the end of a six-day trip to Africa. The freewheeling conversations have become a trademark of his papacy and the few times he takes direct questions from journalists....

    A growing number of energy companies could come under increased scrutiny over their involvement in funding science and public relations campaigns denying the risks of climate change. The New York attorney general made news a few weeks ago when he announced an investigation into oil major ExxonMobil for its alleged cover up of climate science. The investigation is looking into the possibility that ExxonMobil funded and gathered hard science on climate change, and once coming to the inevitable conclusion that the burning of fossil fuels could lead to regulatory blowback, the oil major proceeded to bury the conclusions and instead...

The planet's glaciers are melting at the fastest rates ever seen. Underwater, coral reefs are suffering from an assault of bleaching, spurred by ever-warmer oceans. All of these effects have prompted harsh warnings about the potential impact on humanity. Rising seas from melting glaciers could inundate some of the world's largest metropolises. Warmer summers could force the evacuation of certain cities that may see days with a heat index upwards of 170 degrees Fahrenheit....

Obama has been laying the groundwork for years ahead of the United Nation’s two-week conference on countering climate change, where nearly 200 countries will be hammering out a pact to cut global emissions of heat-trapping gases. Using executive power, the president has moved the U.S. toward lowering carbon emissions, a key step in building credibility for his efforts to coax China, Brazil and other developing nations to do the same. The Paris conference may help...

    The Department of Energy (DOE) announced $125 million in new spending Monday to fund 41 green energy projects ahead of the United Nations global warming summit set to take place next week. DOE is funding dozens of green technologies through the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, or ARPA-E, program to find technological solutions to fighting global warming. ARPA-E projects are ones the government thinks show promise, but aren’t yet commercially viable. “As we look beyond COP21, the energy technologies the Department of Energy invests in today will provide the solutions needed to combat climate change and develop a global low-carbon economy...

    Global warming is the cause of terrorism in the Middle East and around the world according to Martin O'Malley, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, and other Democrats. Let's add in the Prince of Wales. With a straight face they make this claim, ignoring any and all other evidence to the contrary. But if that is so, if global warming causes terrorism, then I think the Democrats need to answer this question: why does global warming only turn Muslims into terrorists? There are Jews in the Middle East and Africa. There are Christians in the Middle East and Africa. There are animists,...

    Unlike ours, apparently, because we would have to cut back immediately.Let's not forget the other travesty going on in Paris at the moment - the one Obama thinks will really show ISIS that we mean business. That's the one in which elected officials from nations across the globe conspire to raise taxes and put crushing new controls on industry using the pretext of global warming - oh, sorry, "climate change - because the public won't support these policies they've wanted to impose all along if not for some scare scenario about a looming global ecological disaster.Actually the public doesn't support...

    Global average temperatures in 2015 are likely to be the warmest on record, according to the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO). Data until the end of October showed this year's temperatures running "well above" any previous 12 month period. The researchers say the five year period from 2011 to 2015 was also the warmest on record. The rise, they state, was due to a combination of a strong El Nino and human-induced global warming. The WMO said their preliminary estimate, based on data from January to October, showed that the global average surface temperature for 2015 was 0.73 degrees C above...

    A global warming crusader used a tax-exempt nonprofit to stuff his families’ pockets at the expense of taxpayers, according to a complaint filed with the Internal Revenue Service by two watchdog groups Tuesday. The Competitive Enterprise Institute and Cause of Action filed a complaint asking the IRS to revoke the exempt status of the Institute of Global Environment and Society Inc. — a global warming advocate that has received over $60 million in federal grants. The nonprofit’s founder and president is George Mason University Professor Jagadish Shukla, who was also the lead signatory of a Sept. 1 letter urging President...

    It was perhaps not Eric Andrieu's most stately speech in the European Parliament. But when the center-left French MEP tabled a last-minute change to new air pollution rules, he did manage to elicit laughter and applause from several of his colleagues. "At the risk of disappointing you, mister president, the European Parliament does not yet have the power to stop cows from farting or burping," said Andrieu, in Wednesday 28 October's plenary session. The vice-chair of the EP's agriculture committee heard many of his fellow MEPs laugh, and smiled. [...] After Andrieu made his fart joke, MEPs passed his amendment,...

    The Syrian crisis that is spreading terror across the world was prompted by climate change, the Prince of Wales has claimed. In a controversial interview, Charles argued that the cumulative effect of global warming was ‘one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria’. He warned that a decades-long failure to tackle climate change inevitably meant ‘greater conflict over scarce resources’ and that even the Pentagon had realised the root cause of war and terrorism was ‘what we’re doing to our environment’. His outspoken comments were made in an interview with Sky News recorded before the Paris attacks. Charles...

    GENEVA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Weather-related disasters such as floods and heatwaves have occurred almost daily in the past decade, almost twice as often as two decades ago, with Asia being the hardest hit region, a U.N. report said on Monday. While the report authors could not pin the increase wholly on climate change, they did say that the upward trend was likely to continue as extreme weather events increased. Since 1995, weather disasters have killed 606,000 people, left 4.1 billion injured, homeless or in need of aid, and accounted for 90 percent of all disasters, it said. A recent...

    King of Sweden calls for a ban on BATHS and admits he is now 'ashamed' to run one after realising how much energy they use The King of Sweden has called for a ban on baths to help save the environment. King Carl XVI Gustaf, who once had a reputation as a lothario and is now a staunch environmentalist, said he realised how much water and energy they used when he was recently staying somewhere without a shower. The 69-year-old 'green king' told Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet: 'It hit me how much water and energy it used. 'I thought "I...

    Britain's Prince Charles has pointed to the world's failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. The heir to the British throne is due to give a keynote speech at the opening of a global climate summit in Paris next week where 118 leaders will gather to try to nail down a deal to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions. "Some of us were saying 20 something years ago that if we didn't tackle these issues, you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and...
