    Massive wildfires have rapidly spread across the Canadian province of Quebec, fueled by dry and hot weather conditions and multiple lightning strikes. The number of fires escalated from 36 to over 100 following a thunderstorm on June 1st, catching authorities off guard. As of Thursday, that massive conflagration has gotten worse. Much, much worse. And the flames are spreading. Trace Gallagher of Fox News gave a sobering update on Thursday about the unprecedented scale of the wildfires in Canada, which have ravaged through the forested countryside and has dealt severe damage to air quality throughout the northeast. While most fires...
  • Fearing 'climate change,' Ireland moves to kill the cows

    Ireland has announced plans to cull hundreds of thousands of cows to comply with European Union climate policy. Similar initiatives in Belgium and the Netherlands ensure that beef prices will rise, but these proposals offer little environmental benefit. Indeed, cows are the heroes, not the villains, in rescuing the climate. Ireland's push to eliminate 200,000 cows demonstrates the persistent folly of climate alarmism, while contrasting the shortcomings of renewable energy products. The fundamental premise of the targeting of benevolent bovines is faulty: that cow burps cause damage to the environment. Interestingly, the alternatives propounded — for humans to obtain protein...

  • 'Huge opportunity' as seaweed farmers hope to grow Irish industry

    Seaweed has long been collected around the Irish coast and utilized for fertilizer and sometimes food. Now, however, seaweed is no longer just collected; it is being grown and harvested by a new breed of farmer — seaweed farmers. Perched on the hillside above the Atlantic Ocean in Allihies on the Beara Peninsula in County Cork, Michael O’Neill’s premise looks just like a collection of farming sheds. Inside it is very different to any farm, because Mr. O’Neill is a seaweed farmer and the premises are a hatchery where he grows and propagates the marine plants. […] His company, Pure...

    Make electricity unreliable and unaffordable and you’ll soon turn your economy to ashes. Australia is on the brink of a major recession, and energy costs are front and centre. Power prices will jump by 25 to 30% next month following the closure of yet another perfectly operable 2,000MW coal-fired power plant. Since the Federal Government’s Renewable Energy Target was ramped up by the Labor government in 2010, Australians have been hit with double-digit percentage increases in their power bills every year since. Households are being hammered by rising interest rates and power bills that they simply cannot afford. Then there...
  • Climate study says it’s too late to save summer Arctic sea ice

    The window has closed to prevent the melting of summer Arctic Sea ice due to human-caused climate change, according to a study published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications. The research indicates that even under a scenario where carbon emissions are sharply curtailed, the Arctic will be “practically” ice-free in September by the middle of the 21st century. The study’s projection goes even further than the warning issued in 2021 by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which determined there is still a chance to save the summer ice in a scenario where warming is kept below...
  • Amount of warming triggering carbon dioxide in air hits new peak, growing at near-record fast rate

    The Associated Press ^ | June 5, 2023 | By SETH BORENSTEIN (D-AP)
    The cause of global warming is showing no signs of slowing as heat-trapping carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere increased to record highs in its annual Spring peak, jumping at one of the fastest rates on record, officials announced Monday. Carbon dioxide levels in the air are now the highest they’ve been in more than 4 million years because of the burning of oil coal and gas. The last time the air had similar amounts was during a less hospitable hothouse Earth before human civilization took root, scientists said. “To me as an atmospheric scientist, that trend is very concerning,” said...

    The mechanism goes as follows: "Large wind turbines logically slow down the wind by sapping the energy out of it. Less wind means less evaporation and thus less precipitation. And if it gets drier, it could just happen that it gets warmer."

    HILO, Hawaii — Children’s Day was approaching, and K.T. Cannon-Eger was on task, directing the cutting of towering bamboo stalks from the thick grove at Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, affixing to them more than 250 Japanese carp windsocks known as koinobori and relaying to volunteers where they should be planted for the upcoming celebration. **SNIP** “More of our pathways are going underwater at high tide,” Cannon-Eger says, adding that studies have predicted the historic grounds, donated by Queen Liliuokalani herself, will be completely submerged within 80 years if trends continue.

    In spite of advances in making laboratory-cultured meat products taste like the real deal, we're yet to see a single factory pumping chicken nuggets out of a vat. That might not be such a bad thing, according to a recent study by researchers from the University of California, Davis (UCD), and the University of California, Holtville. They warn current production methods of lab-grown meat could end up being way worse for the environment than beef farming, despite being touted as a sustainable alternative. Their life-cycle assessment of current meat-growing processes – which has yet to be peer-reviewed – found cultured...

    Nobody seriously doubts anymore that the world is warming, and that consequently climate everywhere is changing. But what might not be so well known is that global warming has caused something quite remarkable to occur in the middle of the North Atlantic. It has resulted in a huge area of cooling in the ocean to the south and east of Greenland, and off to the west of Ireland. Since the Atlantic Ocean and what happens there is the key determinant of the weather in Ireland, there is no question that this cooling phenomenon is already having a big influence on...
  • Heavy ice forces new Russian icebreaker on long southerly voyage

    Latest Arctic challenges illustrate the difficulties in predicting climate change effects. Russia’s newest icebreaker—an 82-metre, 4,000-ton naval vessel—has joined its Pacific fleet off the Kamchatka peninsula, just across the Bering Sea from Alaska. But the route the Yevpatii Kolovrat navigated in mid-May has raised some eyebrows. Instead of traversing Arctic waters from the St. Petersburg shipyard where it was built, the ship sailed out into the Atlantic and south to the Mediterranean Sea. It then passed through the Suez Canal and crossed the Indian Ocean into the Philippine Sea before it arrived at its home port in Petropavlovsk in the...

    Please note: this article was pulled down offline from Forbes. I will let you draw your own conclusions as to why. Factually, there was no justification for it. This list could be closer to 50 but let’s just stick to a handful of them. I literally live in this business every day, and I’m just so confused. 1. In a world that is apparently getting both warmer and colder because of global warming, how is it that we can increasingly rely on non-dispatchable (i.e., intermittent, usually unavailable), weather-dependent electricity from wind and solar plants to displace, not just supplement, dispatchable...

    The trash burning industry was eager to show it is not a polluting relic but a pioneering clean tech sector worthy of millions of dollars in new federal subsidies. As the Biden administration allocates billions of dollars in new climate subsidies, environmentally challenged industries are sharpening their green pitches. The companies argue they are just as entitled to lucrative federal incentives as solar farms or electric carmakers, and are working to frame their businesses as global warming solutions. The money up for grabs from the Inflation Reduction Act and other programs are in amounts large enough to guide whether they...

    The Biden administration is searching for ways to push the world’s largest polluter to reduce carbon emissions, as superpower rivalries engulf a fragile bilateral relationship that could determine the future of global warming. Since negotiations between U.S. climate envoy John F. Kerry and his Chinese counterparts stalled in August, Chinese provinces have accelerated their approvals of new coal power plants, sparking fears that China is moving away from its climate goals, not toward them. Now Biden administration officials are trying to get talks back on track even as they also explore other tools, such as tariffs, that could be tied...

    Dutch police arrested over 1500 climate protesters after a climate protest garnered thousands of participants in the Hague, the Netherlands' seat of government. Protesters blocked a section of a motorway, near the base of both the Dutch parliament and the prime minister's offices. Extinction Rebellion said some 7,000 took part. Police said 40 of the 1579 people arrested would be prosecuted for "vandalism." They added that security had called on protesters to leave, before using water cannons to disperse them. Some protesters came donning bathing suits, in anticipation of the cannons. he protests were primarily against fossil fuel subsidies. "Climate...

    German police on Wednesday carried out raids across seven states targeting climate activists of the "Letzte Generation" (Last Generation) group, which has sparked controversy with protesters glueing themselves to roads to block traffic. The raids were ordered in an investigation targeting seven people aged 22 to 38 over suspicions of "forming or supporting a criminal organisation", said a joint statement by Bavaria's police and prosecutors. Fifteen properties were searched, two accounts seized and an asset freeze ordered. The suspects are accused of "organising a donations campaign to finance further criminal acts" for the group via its website. The authorities did...
