  • Climate: New study slashes estimate of icecap loss

    09/07/2010 10:00:37 AM PDT · by Arkancide · 64 replies ^ | Sep 07, 2010 | Richard Ingham
    Estimates of the rate of ice loss from Greenland and West Antarctica, one of the most worrying questions in the global warming debate, should be halved, according to Dutch and US scientists. In the last two years, several teams have estimated Greenland is shedding roughly 230 gigatonnes of ice, or 230 billion tonnes, per year and West Antarctica around 132 gigatonnes annually. Together, that would account for more than half of the annual three-millimetre (0.2 inch) yearly rise in sea levels, a pace that compares dramatically with 1.8mm (0.07 inches) annually in the early 1960s. But, according to the new...

    When he was the weatherman at WLS-TV in Chicago, John Coleman was a member of a broadcast team that pioneered a news format that was dubbed "happy talk" by a local TV columnist. It's a format that's been widely copied. He went on to be the first weatherman for ABC's "Good Morning America." But Coleman isn't so happy these days. Frustrated by the lack of time and importance given by stations and networks to the weather, Coleman left GMA to found the Weather Channel. What he's not happy about is what his brainchild has become — a forum for Al...

    Al Gore Defends Arrested Son's Carbon Offset Strategy by Scott Ott (2007-07-05) — Al Gore, the concert organizer and former U.S. vice president, today defended his son, Al III, after the younger Gore’s arrest for speeding and drug possession, applauding his use of the hybrid Toyota Prius to offset the carbon emissions of his smoking marijuana. “Even at 100 miles per hour,” said the elder Mr. Gore, “the Prius produces less deadly greenhouse gas than a Lincoln Navigator or a Hummer. While I don’t condone getting caught with marijuana, I would venture to say that my boy’s total carbon footprint...

    Hi, my name is Nicole and I am destroying the planet. I have two cars, often drive alone, haphazardly sort my trash, receive too many of my statements on paper and, worse, know full well I am not doing enough. How can any of us NOT know? Every day, we're reminded of what's at stake: That layer of something hanging around Mount Rainier. The hot stench of traffic. The snow that never lasts very long. That little voice in my head? That's Al Gore. We buy containers for our recycling, for our compost, but that's also part of the problem:...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. | Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards said Tuesday his campaign would seek to eliminate its contribution to global warming by becoming "carbon neutral." Speaking to a crowd of college students at Bennett College, the former North Carolina senator urged all Americans to help reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. "It's time for the president of the United States to ask Americans to be patriotic about something other than war," Edwards said. "This is an emergency. This requires action now." Edwards said his campaign will consult with experts to calculate its total carbon emissions -...

    TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: The government will ask for compensation from around 20 countries which are the highest emission contributors to the environment. The compensation will be taken from the world's adapted funds and forestry incentives. “Indonesia has the potential of around US$3-5 billion per year from emission trading,” said State Minister for the Environment Rahmat Witoelar after attending a joint seminar entitled “Energy Crisis and Climate Change: Where Are We Heading?” in the auditorium of the National Development Planning Agency, Jakarta. He explained that Indonesia is planning to be the host of the 13th Conference of the Parties to the...

    How Gore's Massive Energy Consumption Saves the World March 4, 2007 BY MARK STEYN Sun-Times Columnist Stop me if you've heard this before, but the other day the Rev. Al Gore declared that "climate change" was "the most important moral, ethical, spiritual and political issue humankind has ever faced.'' Ever. I believe that was the same day it was revealed that George W. Bush's ranch in Texas is more environmentally friendly than the Gore mansion in Tennessee. According to the Nashville Electric Service, the Eco-Messiah's house uses 20 times more electricity than the average American home. The average household consumes...

    Lileks: Another empty symbolic gesture By JAMES LILEKSIf environmentalism is the new religion, the Oscar ceremony was the High Holy Mass. Of course, if the Academy — a remarkable name for people who paint their faces and pretend they're secret agents or royalty — were truly serious about imminent global warming, it would have asked everyone to turn off their TVs and receive the results by some low-impact Earth-friendly means, such as carrier pigeon. Perhaps such drastic measures will be used in 2008, by which time the oceans will have risen 37 feet and everyone east of Cleveland will be...
