    WASHINGTON — The nation’s top environmental agency is still reeling from the exodus of more than 1,200 scientists and policy experts during the Trump administration. The chemicals chief said her staff can’t keep up with a mounting workload. The enforcement unit is prosecuting fewer polluters than at any time in the past two decades. And now this: The stressed-out, stretched-thin Environmental Protection Agency is scrambling to write about a half-dozen highly complex rules and regulations that are central to President Joe Biden’s climate goals. The new rules have to be enacted within the next 18 months — lightning speed in...

    California is reeling from a devastating series of powerful winter storms that pummeled the state, killing at least 21 people, and crumbled hillsides and damaged thousands of homes. Many media figures and officials were quick to blame global warming as the culprit... Some experts are saying the recent storms weren’t necessarily the result of global warming. The Los Angeles Times interviewed multiple climate researchers who suggested that the recent storms had more to do with the state’s well-documented historic drought-to-deluge cycles... California’s official climatologist, Mike Anderson, meanwhile, told The Times that "each of the recent atmospheric rivers were within the...

    Canadian researchers analyzed coffee's "contribution to climate change" in a piece published in early January and suggested people moderate their consumption of the popular drink as a part of the solution. Researchers Luciano Rodrigues Viana, Charles Marty, Jean-François Boucher and Pierre-Luc Dessureault wrote in an analysis published in The Conversation that pollution from preparing coffee was "just the tip of the iceberg." "Limiting your contribution to climate change requires an adapted diet, and coffee is no exception. Choosing a mode of coffee preparation that emits less GHGs (greenhouse gases) and moderating your consumption are part of the solution," the researchers...

    Greta Thunberg was famously arrested yesterday in that protest over the expansion of a German coal mine. John wrote about her first arrest, and there was a second yesterday.Footage emerged of the “arrest” later in the day, after some still shots made the rounds to dramatic effect. Thunberg, victim of the hideous German state determined to despoil the environment, yada yada yada.Her stand was, of course, stunning and brave. A true climate warrior willing to risk life and limb in order to save Gaia from physical despoliation and of course doing her best to prevent the planet from burning up,...

Antarctic ice sheet collapse not 'inevitable': studyBoth the North and South pole regions have warmed by roughly three degrees Celsius compared to late 19th-century levels, nearly three times the global average.The global temperature has risen less than two degrees Fahrenheit in the last 150 years.

    Recent studies using honest methodologies establish that the panicky predictions are wrong by as much as 50%. Several recently published studies have provided methodological objections to alarmist IPCC global climate models that predict catastrophic global warming will result from anthropogenic CO2 atmospheric concentrations from burning hydrocarbon fuels. These studies indicate that a more accurate reading of the earth’s surface temperatures suggests global climate warming over the next few decades will be moderate. The studies further indicate that more precise surface temperature readings would seriously dampen the hysterical mass media demand for radical public policies requiring radical decarbonization to achieve Net...

    Road users are being urged to take care following overnight snowfalls in many areas, with low temperatures leading to icy conditions. Met Éireann meteorologist Gerry Murphy said any showers this morning could be of sleet and snow, although as the day goes on showers will be predominantly of rain and sleet. Two Status Yellow warnings for snow and ice remain in place for 22 counties until 9 am. Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Mr. Murphy said it will be quite cold again tonight and temperatures will drop down as low as –4°C in places, with rain and sleet developing in...

    The European Union pushed forward on Tuesday with a major clean tech industrial plan which not only should keep the continent in the vanguard of plotting a greener future but also guarantee its economic survival as it faces challenges from China and the United States. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen presented the outlines for her “Green Deal Industrial Plan” that will make it much easier to push through subsidies for green industries and pool EU-wide projects that are boosted with major funding as the EU pursues the goal of being climate neutral by 2050. “We know that we...

Police told the BBC Ms Thunberg was not arrested and would be released after they checked her ID. The Swedish activist was detained after a group "rushed towards the ledge" of the Garzweiler 2 mine, police said.

    German police arrested Greta Thunberg during a protest against the expansion of a coal mine in the town of Lützerath on Tuesday. Thunberg was among a group of activists who were reportedly rushing toward the mine’s opening when she was detained by security services. “Greta Thunberg was part of a group of activists who rushed towards the ledge. However, she was then stopped and carried by us with this group out of the immediate danger area to establish their identity,” local police said in a statement. Police said Thunberg and her fellow protesters would be released without being charged. Thousands...
  • Electric car batteries could be key to boosting energy storage: study

    Electric car batteries could be used to boost power storage in the future, injecting electricity into the grid during times of scarcity or storing electricity during periods of excess, a new study found Tuesday. Renewable energy is essential for the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below two degrees Celsius, but the need to scale up quickly and the intermittency of wind and solar have raised concerns about meeting electricity demand. One way to help solve this problem is boosting the storage capacity of electricity grids, so that even when there is no sun or wind energy...

    Climate change, as defined by the United Nations: “Refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, such as through variations in the solar cycle.” That’s actually a good definition.But not willing to leave well enough alone, the UN goes further, spoiling a simple and straightforward definition with: “But since the 1800s, human activities have been the main driver of climate change, primarily due to burning fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas.”It is amazing that before humans burned fossil fuels two centuries ago, it was only natural cycles that changed the climate, not backyard...

    The seventh dead whale in a little over a month washed up on the Jersey Shore this week, sparking a debate about the impact of off-shore activities on marine life. The 20-foot-long humpback whale was found on the beach on Thursday afternoon in Brigantine, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center (MMSC) confirmed Friday. “Due to the incoming tide and low light last night, staff returned at daybreak this morning to take photos,” the update read. “Plans are underway for a necropsy to be performed on the animal.” Thursday’s discovery occurred just miles from where another dead whale was found in Atlantic...

    Republicans’ contrived outrage over the Biden administration’s promotion of climate-friendly stoves has me thinking about how unprepared they are for the realities of our high-tech future. Because climate-conscious appliances and devices aren’t going anywhere. Humans’ continued obsession with technology - whether that’s stoves or blockchain platforms to trade goods or high-powered game consoles - is terrible for the environment. Merely producing these things often requires mining for resources, as well as an assembly process that leaves a major carbon footprint. But the energy to run these things, multiplied across the millions of people who use them, really adds up. That’s...
