    California Gov. Gavin Newsom warned the country's leaders that the entire United States will soon mirror the raging wildfires that are working their way through thousands of acres of the state's land. “California, folks, is America fast-forward,” Newsom said. “What we are experiencing right here is coming to a community all across the United States of America unless we get our act together on climate change — unless we disabuse ourselves of all the BS that’s being spewed by a very small group of people that have an ideological reason to advance the cause of a 19th-century framework and solution....

    How a rising of the ocean waters may flood most of our port cities within the foreseeable future — and why it will be followed by the growth of a vast glacier which may eventually cover much of Europe and North America. It is this melting of Arctic ice which Ewing and Donn believe will set off another Ice Age on earth. They predict that it will cause great snows to fall in the north — perennial unmelting snows which the world has not seen since the last Ice Age thousands of years ago. These snows will make the Arctic...
  • This Swedish Town Just Had its Hottest January Day in 162 Years

    The Swedish town of Örebro recorded the highest January temperature it had seen since 1858 on Wednesday.The local weather station measured a temperature of 10.3C, which was later upgraded to 10.5C following a further check. Meteorologist Nitzan Cohen told SVT Örebro the figure was "remarkable". Even still, the central southern town wasn't the warmest spot in the country on Wednesday. Norrköping and Bromma in the Stockholm area both measured 10.5C, while further south in Gladhammar the mercury reached 10.7C. Several other spots topped 10C on Wednesday, including Harstena, Hudiksvall, Kuggören, Södertälje, Oskarshamn and Adelsö. "It's very mild air but there...

  • New Beetle named after "Climate Activist" Greta Thunberg

    A newly-discovered species of beetle has been named after young climate activist Greta Thunberg. Nelloptodes gretae bears little resemblance to its namesake - it is less than 1mm long, and has no wings or eyes. The insect does, however, have two long pigtail-like antennae. Scientist Dr Michael Darby said he chose the name because he was "immensely impressed" by the Swedish teenager's environmental campaigning.
  • Back from the dead: Some corals regrow after 'fatal' warming

    For the first time ever, scientists have found corals that were thought to have been killed by heat stress have recovered, a glimmer of hope for the world's climate change-threatened reefs. The chance discovery, made by Diego K. Kersting from the Freie University of Berlin and the University of Barcelona during diving expeditions in the Spanish Mediterranean, was reported in the journal Science Advances on Wednesday. Kersting and co-author Cristina Linares have been carrying out long-term monitoring of 243 colonies of the endangered reef-builder coral Cladocora caespitosa since 2002, allowing them to describe in previous papers recurring warming-related mass mortalities....

    A major scientific paper, which claimed to have found rapid warming in the oceans as a result of manmade global warming, has been withdrawn after an amateur climate scientist found major errors in its statistical methodology. The paper, from a team led by Laure Resplandy of Princeton University, had received widespread uncritical publicity in the mainstream media when it was published because of its apparently alarming implications for the planet. However, within days of its publication in October 2018, independent scientist Nic Lewis found several serious flaws.

    Efforts to curb greenhouse gas-emissions and the impacts of global warming will fall significantly short without drastic changes in global land use, agriculture and human diets, leading researchers warn in a high-level report commissioned by the United Nations. The special report on climate and land by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes plant-based diets as a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change ― and includes a policy recommendation to reduce meat consumption.

    A story came to my attention recently that merited comment. It appeared in London’s The Telegraph, and was headlined, “Give heat waves names so people take them more seriously, say experts, as Britain braces for hottest day.” The story’s leaping-off point was a press release from the London School of Economics (LSE), which noted, “A failure by the media to convey the severity of the health risks from heat waves, which are becoming more frequent due to climate change, could undermine efforts to save lives this week as temperatures climb to dangerous levels.” It added, “So how can the media...

    Provocations: Climate change mass hysteria The ancients had professionals who were skilled at looking into the future, or who said they were.They were called soothsayers. They had different skill sets for practicing their profession.Some specialized in "haruspicy." That is, they examined the flight of birds. Then, based on the patterns they detected, they advised political leaders on the best public-policy course to follow.Others practiced "extispicy." That is, they poked around in the entrails of sacrificed animals to see what the future held.Then there were those professionals who practiced a branch of soothsaying called "cephalomancy." They examined the shape of skulls....

    he absurdity of the claim that global warming is “settled science” is obvious to anyone who understands what actual science is. And now, thanks to a group of scientists at Kobe University in Japan, we have an example of why climate science is so primitive as to be a faulty basis for policy. The have hard evidence of the effect cosmic rays have on earth’s climate. When galactic cosmic rays increased during the Earth’s last geomagnetic reversal transition 780,000 years ago, the umbrella effect of low-cloud cover led to high atmospheric pressure in Siberia, causing the East Asian winter monsoon...
  • Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

    When CO2 emissions linked to the production of batteries and the German energy mix - in which coal still plays an important role - are taken into consideration, electric vehicles emit 11% to 28% more than their diesel counterparts, according to the study, presented on Wednesday at the Ifo Institute in Munich. Mining and processing the lithium, cobalt and manganese used for batteries consume a great deal of energy. A Tesla Model 3 battery, for example, represents between 11 and 15 tonnes of CO2. Given a lifetime of 10 years and an annual travel distance of 15,000 kilometres, this translates...
  • Evidence from Chile Supports Younger Dryas Extraterrestrial Impact Hypothesis

    The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis, also known as Clovis comet hypothesis, posits that the hemisphere-wide debris field of a large, disintegrating asteroid (or comet) struck North America, South America, Europe, and western Asia approximately 12,800 years ago. This event triggered extensive biomass burning, brief impact winter, climate change, and contributed to extinctions of late Pleistocene megafauna. Controversial from the time it was proposed, this hypothesis continues to be contested by those who prefer to attribute the end-Pleistocene reversal in (global) warming entirely to terrestrial causes. Now, University of California, Santa Barbara’s Professor James Kennett and co-authors present further geologic and...

    The “elite” that are in positions of power in our country have decided to make a final push on climate change before being debunked in the future. The man-hater from Hawaii Mazie Hirono stated in the past week that the Green New Deal is recognition that climate change is happening and that we should not stick our heads in the sand. She has described President Trump, and his minions know zero about the subject and that they deny the "science" behind climate change. Since the subject has gone from global cooling to global warming, to climate change, it proves that...

    The House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold its first hearing under the chamber’s new Democratic majority on climate change. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.), who became the panel’s chairman Thursday when the new Democratic-majority House was sworn in, said climate will come before other major issues within Energy and Commerce’s broad jurisdiction, including health care and technology. Pallone said he is dedicating the first hearing to climate is meant in part to highlight how Democrats believe Republicans ignored the issue during their eight years in the majority. “Part of the reason why we want to deal with climate change first...

    Originally published by E&E News Scientists behind a major study on ocean warming this month are acknowledging errors in their calculations and say conclusions are not as certain as first reported. The research, published in the journal Nature, said oceans are warming much faster than previously estimated and are taking up more energy than projected by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) [Climatewire, Nov. 1]. After a blog post flagged some discrepancies in the study, the authors, from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California, and Princeton University in New Jersey, said they would submit a correction...

    About ten days back Nature magazine generated a lot of media attention for a study it published that purported to prove that the oceans were warming considerably faster than previously thought–up to 60 percent more. Naturally this set off the climatistas (“The study drew considerable media attention, including from The Post,” as the Washington Post laconically put it), as though they need additional confirmation of their eschatology. There’s just one problem—one big problem. The study is riddled with errors. In a long blog post at Judith Curry’s website, Nic Lewis blew big holes in the paper. Here’s the key bit...
