    The Real Revo ^ | 9 Jan 10
    Part One is exactly as advertised. If you are going to be offended by Profanity go read something else. There, I've done my part. Profanity serves a purpose in the military. General Patton explained; "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an Army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An Army without profanity couldn't fight it's...

    While CO2, which is not a pollutant, has been steadily climbing to almost 400 parts per million over the last 75 years, temperatures in the 20th century have fluctuated greatly. The Dust Bowl years of the 1930's were very warm, but from 1940-75, the temperatures plummeted, but then rebounded between 1976-1997, but have since leveled off, with perhaps a slight warming thanks to El Nino the last few years. Meanwhile, CO2 was steadily climbing. If there is no one to one relationship/correlation between temperature and CO2 even in the 20th Century, what of the past? The problem only becomes even...

    Winter storms hitting most areas of the country, guess being a wild animal can be tough. What's worse-burning alive or freezing to death? Probably go with the latter, as the time it takes for the cold to wrap around your skin, blood vessels, and organs is much longer and more painful that being engulfed in flames. The image of the frozen deer, which was uploaded a while back on reddit, shows a young buck standing in deep snow. It's believed that the buck was propped up by a passerby hoping to cause a fright with the eventual onlookers who would...

The video is part of the EPA's "Fight Food Waste" campaign. In the video posted on YouTube and in the text accompanying it, EPA claims that food waste contributes to climate change.

    This week at the United Nations Paris summit on climate-change, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that "even if every western nation reduced its carbon emissions to zero—a clearly impossible accomplishment—global CO2 will continue to rise." The reason is that the growing emissions from the less-developed nations will easily overwhelm whatever the West does. Still, Kerry pressed for western nations to make the commitment "because it would be a noble gesture. By sacrificing our prosperity we make reparation for the centuries of exploitation and oppression we have inflicted on our victims. Ideally, this sacrifice would earn us gratitude, but...

    Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says people should go meat-free one or two days a week to protect the climate. Meat-eating was an environmental problem, with farming creating an estimated 28% of global greenhouse gases, the body-builder and movie star told BBC News. Asking people to go totally vegetarian would be too demanding, he said. It would better to suggest giving up meat once or twice a week, he added. When asked how young men would achieve a body like The Terminator - the cyborg assassin in the film of the same name - without steak, he said many successful...

Obama’s not interested in “American leadership” or “America winning” if you’ll remember. But no matter!

    Caltech and JPL scientists suggest the fingerprints of early photochemistry provide a solution to the long-standing mystery. Mars is blanketed by a thin, mostly carbon dioxide atmosphere—one that is far too thin to prevent large amounts of water on the surface of the planet from subliming or evaporating. But many researchers have suggested that the planet was once shrouded in an atmosphere many times thicker than Earth's. For decades that left the question, "Where did all the carbon go?" Now a team of scientists from Caltech and JPL thinks they have a possible answer. The researchers suggest that 3.8 billion...

In a forum hosted by Freedom Partners on Sunday evening, a key cog in the political network of the Koch Brothers, the Texas senator stated that the data and facts dont support that global warming is occurring. The moderator of the forum described Cruzs stance as full out denial. The Texas senator did not disagree with that characterisation. Cruz has previously compared those who believe in global warming to flat-Earthers. Cruz also criticised the new regulations, set to be unveiled by the Obama...

    I used to think there was a consensus among government-funded certified climate scientists, but a better study by Verheggen et al shows even that is not true. The 97% consensus is now 43%. Finally there is a decent survey on the topic, and it shows that less than half of what we would call climate scientists who research the topic and for the most part, publish in the peer reviewed literature, would agree with the IPCCs main conclusions. Only 43% of climate scientists agree with the IPCC 95% certainty..

A friend sends the heads up to be on the alert for a new term being put into use by the busy as beavers climate change fraudsters: The newly minted term du jour is: Climate Security. (Financial Times, July 27, 2015) It would help more than anything if the global warming/climate change shysters could get the masses to believe that that they need protection from the weather and that they are the only ones that can provide it. As the weather guy warns every summer: Dont go out there, you...

    In what may prove to be a turning point for political action on climate change, a breathtaking new study casts extreme doubt about the near-term stability of global sea levels. The studywritten by James Hansen, NASAs former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the top in their fieldsconcludes that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica will melt 10 times faster than previous consensus estimates, resulting in sea level rise of at least 10 feet in as little as 50 years. The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, brings new importance to a feedback loop...

    On Sept. 19, 2014, the five-day average of Antarctic sea ice extent exceeded 20 million square kilometers for the first time since 1979, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The red line shows the average maximum extent from 1979-2014. Credits: NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio/Cindy Starr Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s. The upward trend in the Antarctic, however, is only about a third of the...

    Have you heard the news? Scientists have found a planet that can support life. Its atmosphere is too hot for year-round habitation, its gases impede breathing, and surface conditions are sometimes fatal. But by constructing a network of sealed facilities, tunnels, and vehicles, humans could survive on this planet for decades and perhaps even centuries. The planet is called Earth. Will Saletan writes about politics, science, technology, and other stuff for Slate. Hes the author of Bearing Right. If you've seen this planet lately, you know what's going on: temperature records shattering, scores of Americans dead. By summer's end, the...

    For much of my life I have been a science writer. That means I eavesdrop on whats going on in laboratories so I can tell interesting stories. Its analogous to the way art critics write about art, but with a difference: we science critics rarely criticise. If we think a scientific paper is dumb, we just ignore it. Theres too much good stuff coming out of science to waste time knocking the bad stuff. Sure, we occasionally take a swipe at pseudosciencehomeopathy, astrology, claims that genetically modified food causes cancer, and so on. But the great thing about science is...

The news report also says The rally will consist of a rare coalition of non-profit organizations and activist groups, including a variety [of] labour unions, Greenpeace, Idle No More and religious organizations.

    End of the American Dream ^ | 06/18/2015 | Michael Snyder
    Things have never been this dry for this long in the recorded history of the state of California, and this has created an unprecedented water crisis. At this point, 1,900 wells have already gone completely dry in California, and some communities are not receiving any more water at all. As you read this article, 100 percent of the state is in some stage of drought, and there has been so little precipitation this year that some young children have never actually seen rain. This is already the worst multi-year drought in the history of the state of California, but this...
