    Earth's oceans are feeling the wrath of human-induced climate change. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising and reefs are dying – and now, according to a new study published in Science Advances, the sea is losing its memory altogether.

    The Department of Justice is establishing a new “Office of Environmental Justice.” Attorney General Merrick Garland made the announcement at a press conference with EPA Administrator Michael Regan Thursday. Garland said that the new office, which will also be known by the initialism OEJ, would “oversee and help guide the Justice Department’s wide-ranging environmental justice efforts.” The office was created as part of the Department’s “comprehensive environmental justice enforcement strategy,” in compliance with the Biden administration’s January 2021 executive order directing the Attorney General to develop such a strategy in conjunction with the EPA. Garland said that OEJ would initially...

    Nature ^ | May 4, 2022
    Computer models that project future climates are widely used for adaptation, mitigation and resilience planning. More than 50 such models were assessed and compared in the latest round of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, phase 6 (CMIP6), run by the World Climate Research Programme1. It is crucial that researchers know the best way to use those outputs to provide consistent information for climate science and policy. We are climate modellers and analysts who develop, distribute and use these projections. We know scientists must treat them with great care. Users beware: a subset of the newest generation of models are ‘too...

    The drive to declare a “climate emergency” has swept much of the world. According to the Climate Emergency Declaration website:“2,094 jurisdictions in 38 countries have declared a climate emergency. Populations covered by jurisdictions that have declared a climate emergency amount to over 1 billion citizens.”But the “emergency” is nowhere to be found in the real world.After all, the so-called “Global Average Temperature” has only risen about 1.2 degrees Celsius since 1880 despite a nearly 50% rise in CO2 levels in the atmosphere. Yet, it was during this period when one would expect the most temperature increase due to CO2 rise....
  • Red states ask Supreme Court to block Biden rule on societal cost of greenhouse gases

    Ten red states, led by Louisiana, asked the Supreme Court on Thursday to block a Biden administration rule for figuring the costs of greenhouse gas pollution when the government makes decisions affecting the environment. A January 2021 White House executive order directs an interagency working group to generate estimates for the societal costs of increased emissions of carbon, methane and nitrous oxide. The estimates are to be used to figure the monetary value of changes in these emissions resulting from government actions. The states said the federal formulas inflate the estimated costs of oil and gas leasing and a host...

  • Swapping meat and dairy for INSECT protein and 'cultured' milk could reduce global warming, water and land use by over 80%, study claims

    Swapping animal products for future foods such as insect protein or cultured milk could reduce global warming, water and land use by over 80 per cent, a new study suggests. Researchers used computer modelling to find the optimal diet combination to meet nutritional needs, while also minimising global warming potential, water and land use. They found that if people in Europe replaced meat and dairy with foods produced through new technologies, such as making fake steak out of bovine cells, it could significantly reduce all environmental impacts. Not only that, but it would be nutritionally adequate and meet the constraints...

    BERLIN (AP) — Twitter says it will no longer allow advertisers on its site who deny the scientific consensus on climate change, echoing a policy already in place at Google. “Ads shouldn’t detract from important conversations about the climate crisis,” the company said in a statement outlining its new policy Friday. The announcement coinciding with Earth Day came hours before the European Union agreed upon a deal requiring big tech companies to vet their sites more closely for hate speech, disinformation and other harmful content. Twitter said it would provide more information in the coming months on how it plans...
  • A 40-year-old mystery about rising temperatures on the moon has been solved — and it was probably the Apollo astronauts' fault

    04/18/2022 7:23:42 PM PDT · by algore · 80 replies
    Newly discovered temperature data from the 1970s moon landings, released in the Journal of Geophysical Research in April, reveals that NASA astronauts probably warmed up the moon's surface temperature by as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit by walking around and poking into the lunar surface. The data comes from so-called heat-flow experiments that were installed on the moon in 1971 and 1972 during the Apollo 15 and Apollo 17 missions. For the experiments, astronauts on each mission drilled two holes into the surface of the moon at depths ranging from 3.2 feet to 7.5 feet deep. The astronauts inserted fiberglass...

    Democrat congressional candidate Alexandra Hunt recently admitted she had an abortion at age 18 because she did not want to bring a baby into a world with a “climate emergency” crisis. Hunt, who is running for a U.S. House seat in Pennsylvania, pointed to the environment and other “crises” to justify her decision to abort her unborn baby, Fox News reports. She is challenging incumbent U.S. Rep. Dwight Evans, a Philadelphia-area Democrat, in the primary election. “I as a person was not ready to bring a child into this world, but also the world was not in a state —...

    Hundreds of scientists from around the world took part in protests last week to apply pressure on government agencies to make “rapid and deep” cuts to greenhouse gas emissions before it’s too late. In London, 25 scientists glued pages of scientific papers, along with their hands, to the windows of the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to force the agency to look at the climate research they say the British government has been ignoring, The Guardian reported. In Madrid, over 50 protesters were arrested after taking to the streets and throwing fake blood on the steps of the...
  • Biden's biofuel: Cheaper at the pump, but high environmental cost

    04/13/2022 8:39:41 PM PDT · by FarCenter · 28 replies
    ... Though biofuels have been touted for their ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, assessing the environmental impact of bioethanol requires including greenhouse gas emissions related to the crops needed for its production. And "the carbon balance of ethanol relative to gasoline isn't as good as it was originally anticipated," Tyler Lark, a scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison told AFP. In 2005, Congress passed a "Renewable Fuel Standard," which required transportation fuel to include a volume of biofuel that increased over time. The law was further expanded in 2007. As a result, 2.8 million additional hectares of corn were...

    OXFORD, England (CNS) — France’s Catholic bishops have stepped up calls for an “integral ecology” to protect the environment while also warning citizens not to “expect a savior or messiah” after the first round of presidential elections April 10. “Our Western societies are aware their remarkable development has taken place at the cost of other world regions — that their race forward in growth has been possible only by polluting or destroying other spaces,” Archbishop Éric de Moulins-Beaufort of Reims, France, president of the French bishops’ conference, said April 8 at the close of the bishops’ plenary meeting in Lourdes....

    The best possible future — the one with fewer climate disasters, extinctions, and human suffering — involves limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. But for this to happen, a new report warns, greenhouse gas levels must start dropping by 2025. “We are on a fast track to climate disaster,” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said on Monday while announcing the new report by the United Nation’s preeminent climate body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “This is not fiction or exaggeration,” he added. “It is what science tells us will result from our current energy policies. We are on...

    The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky delivered a live public broadcast urging all western nations to quickly adopt so called “green energy policies” which he says will undermine the influence of Russia in Europe. In the new video Zelensky urges the NATO alliance, specifically western Europe, to quickly adopt the WEF’s “Build Back Better” climate change agenda as it helps his country. He advocates for “Green Energy” as a top priority so that NATO alliance members are not reliant on Russian energy sales. Zelensky’s proposal to stop the war is basically so-called Green Energy. It seems a bit odd, doesn’t it?...

    The city of San Diego has catapulted off a cliff in woke climate change stupidity. City officials, without consultation or announcement, redesigned a two-lane road along a stretch of Gold Coast Drive in the Mira Mesa suburb that accommodates two lanes of bike traffic but only one center lane for vehicles. But the road remains a two-way street for vehicular traffic, throwing every ounce of common sense out of the window. The city’s reckless actions have even confused and angered some liberal residents. But it isn’t a one-way road; it’s still a two-way traffic road with a single lane. Vehicles...

    The Russian invasion of Ukraine and Joe Biden’s ongoing war on fossil fuels are jacking up oil prices, and now left-wing climate change activists are adding to high energy costs by pressuring banks to stop investing in fossil fuels in the name of stopping “climate change.” The pressure comes in the form of a report titled “Banking on Climate Chaos: Fossil Fuel Finance Report 2022,” which seeks to shame the banks into dropping oil, gas, and other fossil fuel energy resources. And the effort is backed by well-funded climate activists groups, including the Sierra Club and Oil Change International.

    President Biden has good intentions on climate change. His plan to halve carbon emissions by 2030 is on the scale energy and climate experts say is necessary to prevent the worst damage a warming planet could cause. He favors aggression action without the massive overshoot far-left schemes such as the “Green New Deal” would entail. That fits with his desire to make big changes that have at least some bipartisan support and can survive political turnover in Washington.Yet Biden now finds himself snared in an energy trap he constructed himself. He has lobbied for the phase-out of fossil fuels that...

    In about half of people, mental illnesses arise before age 18 - add climate change fears and the outlook is grim Suppose you wake up in the night and you notice flames coming from downstairs. You ring for the fire brigade and they say you’re probably imagining it. Anyway, they add, by the time they could get there it would be too late anyway. As you watch your house burn, your feelings might include anger, a sense of betrayal and grief. Is that an extreme metaphor for the feelings of young people towards older generations and governments in regard to...

    A globalist climate change-focused organization in the United Kingdom has issued an analysis that claims rich countries should be the first to drop the harvesting of all fossil fuels by 2034 in order to keep the global warming cap at 1.5 degrees Celsius. This would give poor countries more time to divest of oil and gas.
