    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...

    Compared to other issues such as communicable diseases, malnutrition and hunger, sanitation and water, and the rest, climate change ranked last on the list Chapman University recently completed its third annual Survey of American Fears (2016). 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.

    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...

    Making Mother Nature her latest campaign prop, Clinton uses God’s Creation to claim that Trump is “totally unfit and unqualified to be OUR President, and with blowing winds is giving Hurricane Matthew a run for its money The Progressive Blame Game has finally come all the way full circle: foul weather is big, bad Donald J. 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.

There are stories and photos of the National Guard prepping to “roll,” although I don’t know what...

    Gasoline prices in the U.S. Southeast spiked in September after a major gasoline pipeline suffered a leak and was forced to temporarily shut down. The Southeast may see gasoline prices rise again because the problems with the pipeline are not over. The Colonial Pipeline is a 2.5 million barrel per day system that carries refined products such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and heating oil. It consists of a massive 5,500 miles of pipeline, traveling from the Gulf Coast up to the mid-Atlantic. Fuels refined along the Gulf Coast can reach as far as New York Harbor.

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Mark Apel, Area Agent
    Now that our monsoon is winding down, perhaps you are noticing areas on your property where heavy rainfalls have begun to wash away one of your most precious resources – your soil. Depending on the topography of your property, you may notice areas of bare ground, new small channels that are forming or older channels that are deepening with every rain event. Soil erosion is a natural and human-caused phenomenon worldwide and can even be seen from space through satellite imagery. For example, a quick peak on Google Maps of the delta south of New Orleans shows a very muddy,...

    The New York Times’ multi-part series profiling President Barack Obama’s legacy on global warming reveals the president is a fan of a book on how “climate change and overpopulation” could cause modern civilization to collapse. Obama was apparently a fan of Jared Diamond’s 2005 book “Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed,” which “explored the environmental changes that wiped out ancient societies like Easter Island and discussed how modern equivalents like climate change and overpopulation could yield the same destruction,” according to NYT. An Obama aide told NYT he “recalled” the president mentioning Diamond’s book. Diamond is also the...

He purported to commit the United States to a legally binding treaty without first obtaining consent by two thirds of the Senators present, as required under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution. Obama is using the United Nations to end run the Senate with regard to the Paris Agreement on climate change negotiated last December. Last week, Obama submitted an instrument to United Nations Secretary General Ban...

From climate doomsters to media politicos, the world is being bombarded with mis-constructs, unfounded claims and outright lies.

    Liberals love to tout how great alternative energy is compared to fossil fuels. What the same environmentalists refuse to acknowledge is the costs that will be paid by the energy companies customers. While people such as Obama and Clinton continue to push for alternative energy by acting as if it’s a surefire way to lower energy costs, Germany has proven that a lie. The German government has officially declared it will cease building any new offshore wind turbines in an effort to lower energy costs for the European Union’s richest nation.

It's designed, instead, to produce acolytes." The first responsibility of any school is to teach what is known. Man's influence on climate is by now well-established, as the board notes. Climate contrarians, despite all their bluster, have never put forth an alternate scientific explanation for modern warming that explains what we see. If I were a Portland public school...

It's just meteorology. The dual glass spheres at the South Pole are Campbell-Stokes sunshine recorders, orbs that capture the number of hours of direct sunlight each day, as well as its intensity.Sunshine recorders first came about in the 1850s, thanks to John Francis Campbell—the Campbell in Campbell-Stokes. Around 1853, Campbell, a Scottish author who focused on Celtic folklore, developed a desire to quantify...

    If those who claim that carbon dioxide has some special insulating properties really believe their claims, why aren’t they encouraging the use of carbon dioxide to insulate buildings in winter. If concentrations of CO2 of only a few hundred parts per million can cause earth to become warmer then pure carbon dioxide used as an insulation for buildings should be even more effective at holding in heat. If CO2 could be used as insulation, CO2 emissions would be collected so the gas could be used to insulate buildings

    I've googled and googled and cannot find an answer to this question. Joe Bastardi regularly refers to CIRES maps in his Saturday Summaries. The maps show geographic boundary divisions within each state that look like Counties but are not. Does anyone know what these boundary divisions represent? Some sort of geographic climate designation?Thank-you for your consideration!

    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...
  • Climate Change Theorists Consistently Deceive with Glaring Omission

    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 big question is: How many citizens governed by Islam simpatico Western leaders will be able to dig themselves out from the brutal heel of radical Islam? For the longest time now, all people seem to want to talk about is the weather. Politicians and trends come and go but the weather is always there to talk about and is often used by authorities to scare people out of their wits. The weather, global warming’s biggest Public Relations booster, does not just push common sense into unwitting early retirement, it owns the power to knock the Kardashians and the latest...

    New abundance of food and fodder in the world is not only a result of genetic modifications. Greening of the world is also the consequence of the atmospheric carbon dioxide level that’s beneficial to plants worldwide The world is going green – literally, in all kinds of places that were desert-like before. Have you ever been in an airplane crossing the semi-arid foot hills of the Rocky Mountains and looking down at the ground? You’ll have seen large green, circular patches between the miles of dry brown land. Those patches are irrigated fields sprouting vegetables and fruits of various kinds....

    Time magazine, in it's headlong rush to create alarm over non existent anthropogenic global warming, published a now corrected article that screamed hysterically that temperatures on the North Pole were (OMG!) 50 degrees warmer than usual. Too bad the author of the article confused the actual north pole with North Pole, Alaska. The corrected article. Note their quiet little mention that the article originally misidentified the reading belonging to the north pole. Dumb. Sh*ts. All of them, fact checkers and editors, in all their many and multicolored layers, included. The original, uncorrected article said this: Stormy weather in the...

    Opting for that plate of bacon instead of a salad can actually help save the environment. A newly released study conducted by Carnegie Mellon University researchers found that following the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommendations to eat more fruits, vegetables, dairy, and seafood is more harmful to the environment than eating meat. According to the study, a vegetarian diet requires more greenhouse gas emissions per calorie than meat. ...

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted a video on its website to tell Americans that they should think about how much food they waste during the holiday season if they want to help save the planet. 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. [...] "Once in landfills, food breaks down to produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change," the text states. "So, this holiday season, take steps to cut down your...

    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...
