    Earth, I love you. I always have. You and your elemental inhabitants are the most beautiful beings that I have ever seen, met, felt and experienced. You are the most beautiful life experiment in this universe. You are music to my ears and soul. And your green! The sound of the leaves in the wind. The scents. The sunrise and sunset. The moon. The humming of the bees, the rushing of the waves. The infinite moments of sensory ecstasy and blissful encounters with other beings. Discovering woman-identification has been a constant dance of fire and joy. *** Alexis linked to...
  • Tornadoes of Fire now on the Climate Apocalypse Agenda

    canadafreepress.com ^ | 7/15/2014 | Sierra Rayne
    According to Canada’s state broadcaster—the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)—“‘Tornadoes of fire’ in N.W.T. [Northwest Territories] are linked to climate change.” The story cites Mike Flannigan—a professor of Wildland Fire in the University of Alberta’s renewable resources department—and Dave Phillips—a senior climatologist with Environment Canada—as the sources for the link between these fires and climate change. Conveniently, there is a long-term climate station at Yellowknife in Environment Canada’s Adjusted and Homogenized Canadian Climate Data (AHCCD) database going back to 1943.

    canadafreepress.com ^ | 7/7/2014 | Marita Noon
    There is an intentional tension in Washington. Our founding fathers planned that opposing views would balance each other out—a push-pull takes place. Spend. Don’t spend. This tug-of-war is seen, perhaps most obviously, in the so-called renewable energy field. After Solyndra, and the more than fifty other stimulus-funded green energy projects that have failed or are circling the drain, the public has grown weary, and wary, of any more spending on green energy. The money isn’t there to spend and the motive behind the 2009 rush to push billions of taxpayer dollars out through the Department of Energy has been tainted...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)A large super typhoon is gathering force as it barrels along a path that is expected to take it close to the Japanese island of Okinawa. By the time it nears Okinawa early Tuesday, Super Typhoon Neoguri is likely to be generating winds as strong as a Category 5 hurricane, meteorologists say. "This is a beast," said CNN International Meteorologist Tom Sater. Okinawa, where multiple U.S. military facilities are situated, regularly finds itself in the path of big typhoons. Many of the buildings on the island are designed to weather the powerful winds that come roaring in off the Western...

    So, will this mean he’ll voluntarily penalize himself? (Watchdog.org) Speaking in New York City last week, Wall Street billionaire Tom Steyer laid clear his vision for penalizing people whose actions may contribute to climate change. “We need to reward people whose behavior reduces climate risk and penalize people who add to it,” said Steyer “If we can get this right, I think there’s no doubt that our economy is going to continue to do very well.” Huh.

    Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this week. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. Until the weekend just past, the previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal, a mark hit on December 20, 2007, as I reported here, and also covered in my book. Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, responded to e-mail questions and also spoke by telephone about the new record sea ice growth in the Southern Hemisphere, indicating that, somewhat counter-intuitively, the sea ice growth was specifically due to global warming....

    ISIS emerged around the same time Iraq experienced its warmest March-April-May season on record. It may just be an interesting coincidence, but it could mean more.This winter was not a good one for farmers in the Fertile Crescent. A punishing drought hit most of Syria and northern Iraq during what’s normally the wettest time of the year. In the mountains of eastern Turkey, which form the headwaters of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, snow and rain were less than half of normal. The region has seen one of the worst droughts in decades. Drought is becoming a fixture in the...

    leomcneil.net ^ | June 23, 2014 | Leo McNeil
    Approved climate change scientists have been quietly manipulating temperature data dating back to at least the 1930′s. In order to prove global warming, these scientists have tossed aside actual temperature data collected in the 30′s and beyond in favor of computer models. Those computer models just happen to prove exactly what their programers want to prove. Thus computer models show a massive warming since the 30′s when actual temperatures taken during that decade show it to be the warmest decade on record. Of course progressive scientists can’t peddle doom and gloom unless there is a massive warming. Actual temperatures get...

Dr Caleb Rossiter - an adjunct professor at American University, Washington DC - has been fired by a progressive think tank after publicly expressing doubt about man-made global warming. Rossiter, a former Democratic congressional candidate, has impeccably liberal credentials. As the founder of Demilitarization for Democracy he has campaigned against US backed wars in Central America and Southern Africa, against US military support for dictators and against anti-personnel landmines. But none of this was enough to spare him the wrath of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) when he wrote an OpEd in the...

    According to the RSS satellite data, whose value for May 2014 has just been published, the global warming trend in the 17 years 9 [months] since September 1996 is zero (Fig. 1). The 213 months without global warming represent more than half the 425-month satellite data record since January 1979. No one now in high school has lived through global warming. The hiatus period of 17 years 9 months is the farthest back one can go in the RSS satellite temperature record and still show a zero trend. But the length of the pause in global warming, significant though it...

    The global warming hysterics’ favorite fantasy these days is that Antarctic ice will melt due to hypothetical warming, leading to catastrophic flooding as the level of the oceans rises. It is commonly asserted that sea level will rise at least three feet by the end of the century. Put aside whether the Earth actually will warm and whether a three-foot rise would really be catastrophic. Put aside, too, any doubts about how much melting will occur even if the Earth warms by a few degrees, given that the average annual high temperature in Antarctica is -49 F. Does the reality...

The extensive interview, in which Gore calls himself a "recovering politician" and declines to rule out a Presidential run in 2016, also focuses heavily on Gore's thoughts on efforts to combat climate change. Gore said he thinks the world is nearing a "tipping point" in which there would be "shared resolve" to decrease the use of fossil fuels worldwide. He also said that, if steps are taken now, some "catastrophic" events might be avoided. But...

    One can figure out that the "science" of climate change has fallen on hard times when its chief defenders are not actual scientists, but rather a pair of comedians, Bill Maher and Bill Nye the former "science guy," according to Politico. Of course a third comedian, albeit an amateur one, is also flogging the idea. John Kerry is comparing "climate change" to the threat of WMDs. When one considers that controversy that ensued when the coalition forces that liberated Iraq failed to find much evidence of WMDs, it was perhaps an unfortunate analogy.

    In another silly pseudo-science rambling, the President’s science advisor, John Holdren, has recently stated, “Weather practically everywhere is being caused by climate change.” Drought in California. Record snows in the East. It’s tempting for many to blame it all on our use of fossil fuels. What Causes Weather? Let’s start with the basics. Weather is caused by energy imbalances, primarily (1) between the solar heated surface of the Earth and the atmosphere above it, and (2) between different geographic regions (e.g. the tropics vs. high latitudes; the warm oceans versus cold continents in winter). These energy imbalances have associated temperature...

    Reading what went on in Atlanta this week is just amazing! I moved to Florida after living near Chicago and the lake snow region of NW Indiana most of my life. We had to deal with bad ice storms in Southern Illinois when I was young and while at the University of Illinois in Champaign. Three inches of snow in Chicago is NOTHING. They got rid of a mayor that didn’t get and keep the roads open. I had to teach in Chicago Heights, IL when the temperature was -48 and the wind chill was -82. As I recall, I...

    In preparation for the iconic Iron Dog and Iditarod races, we spent a glorious day dog mushing with Iditarod great DeeDee Jonrowe! Filming this champ's efforts for Sportsman Channel was spectacular, and I can’t wait to share her story with you on “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” debuting April 3. DeeDee has the fastest time of any woman in the Last Great Race on Earth, she's been successfully competing for decades, and her unbelievable life story will inspire you to be an overcomer – I promise you! It was so much fun to host Jim Moret from “Inside Edition,”...

    Global warming is an evil scourge that has played havoc across the US recently. Temperatures in my home state of Florida have plunged with the latest cold snap, forcing me to turn on my home's heater to combat the insidious freezing power of global warming. As cold as it has gotten in Florida, other parts of the South were harder hit. In Alabama, thousands of students were trapped in their schools and forced to stay overnight. The biggest spectacle took place in Atlanta, Georgia, where roads shut down as thousands of drivers were stranded. It was like watching a scene...

    I thought that my anger over the media's misuse of the term, polar vortex, during the first week of January (2014) had subsided until I heard references this week to a "piece of the polar vortex breaking away" and bringing the current siege of cold weather to the eastern half of the contiguous states. In the words of the late actor, Peter Finch, from his Oscar-winning performance in the film, Network, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more" (YouTube clip of his acclaimed rant).What is the polar vortex? For the record, the polar vortex...

    TOURE: "...... I’m sorry, I can only do so many fun, awe-struck stories about the weather and the extraordinary weather events without saying this is because of climate change. That's why we're having all of these extraordinary weather events and we don’t talk about it enough. When a quarter of America thinks these are not caused by human activities. When we act like all this is fun, you know what we are doing? We’re dancing on the deck of the Titanic."
  • Mayor Kaiser Wilhelm II Did Not Plow The UES of NYC, but WHY?

    The UES wasn’t the only area in Manhattan that wasn’t plowed; in fact, as of 4:00 p.m. yesterday, it is KNOWN that most of the area shown in red in the following map was NOT plowed – not even once: http://project.wnyc.org/election2013/ The traffic on all major avenues in the red area was pretty much at standstill. Now, in fairness, I don’t know if all of the areas in green was plowed but someone ought to know. If the UES wasn’t plowed when, for instance, the UWS was, it’d seem that Kaiser Wilhelm II wasn’t going after just the 1 percenters...
