    This week ice pancakes were found along Chicago's shoreline of Lake Michigan. Ice pancakes, much like their namesake, look exactly like you think they would -- round flat discs made of ice. They are common in the Arctic but typically only start making an appearance in the Lower 48 states once the temperatures get well below freezing for several days. "A signature feature of pancake ice is raised edges or ridges on the perimeter, caused by the pancakes bumping into each other from the ocean waves,"
  • Volcanic Eruption Not Associated With Climate Change (only 8.99 years left)

    The eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano has nothing to do with climate change. Despite some arguments that the two phenomenons are inter-related, there is no clear evidence of the connection. That’s the view of two renowned geologist who’ve lived and worked in the region for several years. Even the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) also noted that volcanic eruptions are often discussed in relation to climate change. This was largely because of the release of CO2 (and other gases) into our atmosphere. However, it pointed out that human contributions to the carbon cycle are more...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/21/2022 | Selwyn Duke
    Late last year, I got into a discussion with a fellow who was quite sold on the idea that man’s activities were warming the Earth. While not a hardcore ideologue, it was apparent the gentleman had accepted the climate change narrative presented by mainstream media and believed we truly were imperiling the planet. I didn’t say much to him initially, as we were engaged in some recreation, but later on, I resurrected the topic and told him I just wanted to pose one question. “What is the ideal average temperature of the Earth”? I asked.It was clear he was without...

    Winter storms have devastated refugee and displacement camps across Syria, humanitarian organizations reported on Wednesday. Freezing temperatures have also gripped neighboring Iraq in recent days, where at least three displaced people have died from exposure in the space of 72 hours, according to an Iraqi human rights monitor. Two children died at the Ashti camp in Sulaymaniah province, as did a 71-year-old woman living in an abandoned house in Diyala province, the Afada observatory said Wednesday. In Syria, videos and photos posted online by local photographers and residents of the camps showed tents blanketed in white while people feared the...
  • The New Yorker’s OUTRAGEOUS Climate Nemesis: Refrigerators

    NewsBusters ^ | 1/20/2022 | Jeffrey Clark
    New Yorker Staff Writer David Owen took a nosedive into eco-extremism. He argued that the refrigerator has become — wait for it — “an agent of climate catastrophe.” Owen pontificated in a blog headlined, “How the Refrigerator Became an Agent of Climate Catastrophe,” that “[t]he evolution of cooling technology helps to explain why supposed solutions to global warming have only made the situation worse.” Specifically, he identified refrigerators, these unassuming little machines, as the vile culprits “of our unfolding climate catastrophe.” Really? Owen wrote as if refrigerators are cartoon villains who chomp on cigars while they devise the destruction of...

    A meteorologist known for smacking down the sensationalism of eco-fanatics said his website was demonetized by censorship giant Google. University of Alabama, Huntsville Principal Research Scientist Dr. Roy Spencer posted a blog on his website Jan. 7 saying that he had been demonetized for “unreliable and harmful claims.” This meant, according to Spencer, that he could “no longer generate revenue to support the website using the Google Adsense program.” Spencer noted that he was getting “Google warnings for a couple months now about ‘policy violations’, but nowhere was it listed what pages were in violation, and what those violations were.”...

    PHILADELPHIA (StudyFinds.org) - The climate crisis will cause more people to suffer from kidney stones, a new study predicts. Researchers from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) say kidney stones is a condition in which hard deposits of minerals build up in the urine, causing great pain as they pass through the urinary tract. Their study finds the incidence of this condition has increased in the last 20 years and is more prevalent among women and children. “While it is impossible to predict with certainty how future policies will slow or hasten greenhouse gas emission and anthropogenic climate change, and...

    Jon Reeves first realized that treating climate anxiety would become a regular part of his job in 2016. He was then working in Massachusetts as a student counselor at Boston College, and the country was about to elect noted climate-change denier Donald Trump to the highest office in the land. “I definitely noticed that students were bringing climate change up as part of their overall concerns,” Reeves, a psychologist, told Yahoo News. “I think there was some stress that came along with the presidential election and concerns that the U.S. government wouldn’t do as much to mitigate climate change with...

    According to scientists all across the world, it’s getting hot in here. And by here, they mean the entire planet. On Thursday, NASA and NOAA released an announcement stating that 2021 was the sixth-hottest year on record, reaching 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit above the average temperature baseline. A few days earlier, the European Unions’s Copernicus Climate Change Service declared 2021 the fifth hottest year on record (NASA reported 2021 tying with 2018, while Copernicus showed 2021 slightly beating out 2018). The year was cooler than record-breaking 2020 and 2016, but the temperatures still were relatively close together. Additionally, heat measurements? in...

    The Department of Energy (DOE) invested $1.1 billion in carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, many of which were unsuccessful or canceled, over the last decade, according to a federal watchdog report.The DOE’s $684 million investment in coal CCS projects resulted in just one operational facility and seven canceled projects, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report published in late December. One of three facilities that received a share of the department’s $438 million investment in industrial CCS projects was also nixed.The department ultimately failed to properly evaluate the projects — which use advanced technology to reduce emissions from...

    Cracked homes, buckled roads and ruptured pipelines are likely to become common in and near the Arctic as warming temperatures cause frozen ground to thaw, new findings say. Five million people live on Arctic permafrost including in Russia, North America and Scandinavia. Climate change is causing the Arctic to warm two-to-four times faster than the rest of the planet. "The land changes right before us," one Alaska resident told BBC News. Scientists studying the Arctic say that 70% of infrastructure and 30-50% of critical infrastructure is at high risk of damage by 2050, with projected cost of tens of billions...

    The United States staggered through a steady onslaught of deadly billion-dollar weather and climate disasters in an extra hot 2021, while the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions last year jumped 6% because of surges in coal and long-haul trucking, putting America further behind its 2030 climate change cutting goal. Three different reports released Monday, though not directly connected, paint a picture of a U.S. in 2021 struggling with global warming and its efforts to curb it. Scientists have long said human-caused climate change makes extreme weather nastier and more frequent, documenting numerous links to wild and deadly weather events. They say...

    At least 22 people including 10 children have died after a heavy snow storm left an estimated 125,000 cars stranded in a mountain resort town in Pakistan. Eight of the fatalities were from the family of Islamabad police officer Naveed Iqbal, who died alongside his wife and six children. Police said most people had frozen to death in their cars but that others may have died from asphyxiation after turning on their vehicle's heaters to keep warm after getting stuck on the road. More than four feet of snow fell in the hillside town overnight on Friday, trapping tourists and...

    Skyrocketing gas prices are sparking major concerns in the UK, with households bracing for higher bills and food prices. The energy crisis has already hit millions of Brits, but is set to hit more still. The UK is highly dependent on consumer spending to generate output, indicating the economy could still be in the mire heading into the spring. A wave of concern over the swelling cost of living is sweeping across Britain. While households are bracing for higher tax bills and are already being stung by food prices leaping, it is swelling energy costs that will hit hardest in...

    President Biden said Friday massive wildfires like the one that swept across parts of Colorado last week are being fueled by global warming. "Because a combination of extreme drought – the driest period from June to December ever recorded – unusually high winds, no snow on the ground to start, created a tinderbox, a literal tinderbox," Biden said in Louisville, Colorado, after touring damage left behind from the fire with local and state officials and first lady Jill.

    Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the "crippling consequences" of climate change. "Ninety-seven percent of the world's scientists," he added, "tell us this is urgent."Where did Mr. Kerry get the 97% figure? Perhaps from his boss, President Obama, who tweeted on May 16 that "Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: #climate change is real, man-made and dangerous." Or maybe from NASA, which posted (in more measured language) on its website, "Ninety-seven percent of climate scientists agree that climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities."Snip
