    If Trump and his cronies really cared about children killed by noxious gases, they wouldn’t be trying to spew ever more CO2 into the atmosphere.The gas attack in Syria on April 4 consumed the world’s attention and galvanized the Trump White House, leading to the launch of 59 cruise missiles on a small airport from which the regime of Bashar al-Assad has been bombing the fundamentalist rebels in Idlib province. The pictures of suffering children, Trump said, had touched him. Yet the president and most of his party are committed to increasing the daily release of hundreds of thousands of...

    California legislative knuckleheads really don't know how stupid they look, do they? “As a symbol of California’s commitment to the environment and combatting climate change, the Department of General Services (DGS), in cooperation with the Joint Rules Committee, will turn off the State Capitol dome lights for one hour (from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) this Saturday, March 25th, to observe Earth Hour.” We’re going to turn the dome lights off, but leave all the internal ones on. That makes sense… They’re too busy saving the world while the state burns.

    Carbon (dioxide) is the life blood of all beings on earth -- no ifs, buts, or maybes! Politics aside, there is a variety of “science news” that makes you wonder. A case in point is the news about a recent publication by scientists at the University of Royal Holloway London (URH) with headlines like: “Massive pool of boiling carbon that could cause CLIMATE CHAOS discovered,” or “Huge sea of BOILING CARBON—the size of MEXICO—is sitting beneath USA.” A little visual display of one of those posts may help you along in understanding the grave danger from that sea of “boiling...

    Watts up With That ^ | Feb 15 2017 | Anthony Watts
    We’ve already had two big events like this so far this year, now forecasts show a clear pattern of a heavily moisture laden “atmospheric river” taking aim directly onto the Oroville Dam watershed over the next week. Accumulated precipitation forecasts show that the Lake Orovile watershed will score a direct hit with the maximum amount of precipitation over the next 10 days (see graphic near bottom of this article). Meteorologist Paul Dorian of Vencore Weather writes: There have been many occasions in the past in which floods have followed droughts in California and this recent time period is yet another...

    Climate activist and former vice president Al Gore is teaming up with the American Public Health Association and other organizations to hold a summit on climate change and health that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention canceled earlier this week. The CDC quietly called off the summit after President Trump's inauguration, telling reporters it was "exploring options to reschedule the meeting." The scientific community has accused CDC officials of canceling the event out of fear of the Trump administration. The CDC falls under the Department of Health and Human Services, and Trump has nominated Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.),...

"I hope as many people as possible can help us come alongside these homeowners and show them the love of Christ."

    Brown's reign of madness over California. Halting Brown foolish hysteria is only the first step in saving California. Climate change is California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “crusade,” his jihad, his holy war. Yet Gov. Brown’s climate change and drought policy is flooded with a manic madness - never has his manic obsession with climate change been more evident. California’s drought conditions are actually historically normal; water shortages are created by incompetent and scheming government In March on Meet the Press, after declaring Ted Cruz unfit to run for president because of his views on climate change, Brown said, “We are running...
  • Europe’s Most Dangerous Supervolcano Is Waking Up; 500,000 Lives At Risk

    When Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Italian city of Pompeii in ash, killing 2,000 people, it was regarded as one of the most catastrophic natural disasters and is still studied heavily today. By comparison, a nearby supervolcano called Campi Flegrei, which means “burning fields,” would put the lives of 500,000 Italians at risk and cause damage that would extend to the surrounding nations.

    It was reported last week that President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team had sent the Department of Energy a list of 74 questions. In that list, the DOE was asked to provide names of employees who had worked on President Barack Obama’s climate change policy. This action brought up concerns that the incoming POTUS and his administration may be looking to not only dismantle many of the actions Obama has set forth to study and combat climate change, but to also push out federal employees and contractors who had worked on those programs. Scientists have signed petitions to call on Trump...

    Let's get over ourselves and admit there is only One who can hold the world in His hand Experts said Arctic sea ice would melt entirely by September 2016 - they were wrong. Texas has been cooling since 1995, but that doesn’t suit NOAA’s global warming agenda. So they keep cooling the past further and further to create the appearance of a warming trend.

    Sea ice in the Antarctic is much less sensitive to the effects of climate change that that of the Arctic A hundred years of cars, planes, wars, and five billion more polluting people, and there’s nothing to show for it. Old log books kept by Scott and Shackleton show that Antarctic sea ice hasn’t changed much since 1912 reports Joanne Nova. Experts have been concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra...

    Man, there is just no end to Gore’s hubris. From his website, which I’ll pass on linking to for obvious reasons …"Last night President-elect Trump said he wanted to be a president for all Americans. In that spirit, I hope that he will work with the overwhelming majority of us who believe that the climate crisis is the greatest threat we face as a nation. I wish him well in these efforts and intend to do everything I can to work with him and his administration to ensure that our nation remains a leader in the global effort to...

The survey asked respondents about 65 fears across a broad range of categories, including fears about the government, crime, the environment, the future, technology, health, natural disasters, as well as fears of public speaking, spiders, heights, ghosts, and many other personal anxieties.
  • 4,001 Days: The Major Hurricane Drought Continues

    Today marks 4,001 days since the last major hurricane (Wilma in 2005) made landfall in the United States. A major hurricane (Category 3 to 5) has maximum sustained winds of at least 111 mph, and “landfall” means the center of the hurricane eye crosses the coastline. This morning it looks like Matthew will probably not make landfall along the northeast coast of Florida. Even if it does, its intensity is forecast to fall below Cat 3 strength this evening. The National Hurricane Center reported at 7 a.m. EDT that Cape Canaveral in the western eyewall of Matthew experienced a wind...

Trump’s fault. ‘Stormy weather’ is the song recorded by the iconic Lena Horne. Without the interruption of coughing, Hillary Clinton is now screeching it.

    Rainfall totals for the recently-ended monsoon showed above average amounts, with significant variations in the higher elevations, Emily French, National Weather Service meteorologist, said Monday. “Everything east of Sells, Ariz., had above average rainfall amounts for the season,” French said. “West of there, it was considerably drier.” Local rainfall amounts varied dramatically during the monsoon, which began June 15 and ended Sept. 30. French said the Sierra Vista Fire Department reported a season total of 11.34 inches, which is 2.9 inches above the 30-year average of 8.44 inches.
