They found that Arctic sea ice is disappearing faster than scientists expected. "We're seeing it happen more quickly than our model thought [it] would happen," said Barber.
It was presented as fact. The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, led by India’s very own RK Pachauri, even announced a consensus on it. The world was heating up and humans were to blame. A pack of lies, it turns out.
Rajendra Pachauri was told that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment that the glaciers would disappear by 2035 was wrong, but waited two months to correct it.
Our findings underscore the need to critically evaluate transportation-related environmental and health impacts of currently proposed changes in school policy.
Environmentalists claim that our use of carbon-based energy is altering the climate, making us more vulnerable to climate disasters. Human survival, they insist, requires the immediate abandonment of fossil fuels in favor of carbon-free sources. So w
It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny - and ignored warnings from scientific advisers that the evidence supporting the link too weak. The report's own authors later withdrew the claim
Arctic Oscillation (AO) and its status is quantified as an index value. When pressures are higher than normal in the Arctic and lower than normal in mid-latitudes, the AO is in its negative phase and the index is negative. The NSIDC reports that De
I was at the table with three Europeans, and we were having lunch. And they were talking about their role as lead authors. And they were talking about how they were trying to make the report so dramatic that the United States would just have to sign
The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed up by research.
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? Here's another: If a doctrine falls, will enough believers admit they were wrong and withdraw support for policies associated with it?
We are all for protecting the environment, but stealing land is not necessary or justified. Yet it is occurring every day.
USgov climate data centers are being accused of creating a strong bias toward warmer temps via a system that trimmed the number and cherry-picked the locations of weather observation stations used to produce the data on which temperature records are
Caldeira’s study showed that doubling the amount of carbon dioxide while holding steady all other inputs— water, nutrients and so forth— yields a 70% increase in plant growth, an obvious boon to agricultural productivity. “That’s why most commercial
He and his colleagues predicted the new cooling trend in a paper published in 2008 and warned of it again at an IPCC conference in Geneva last September. Last night he told The Mail on Sunday: ‘A significant share of the warming we saw from 1980 t

Arguably 2009 was one of the most eventful since the manmade climate change theory was first put forth. The year started with the science seemingly ‘settled’ and a ‘consensus’ pointing to man being the dominant influence on climate. In 12 short month
The newspaper said the researchers tapped satellite sensor temperature data compiled over 18 years in what is believed to be the first time that long-range lake surface temperatures have been dissected. What the data reportedly showed is that the lak
There are facts and data that are ignored in the maelstrom of social and economic agendas swirling about Copenhagen. Greenhouse gases and their effects are well-known. Here are some of things we know:
Remember last April’s LA Times’ article on Australia’s drought, brushfires, and searing heatwaves, and how they were “harbingers” of global warming to “come”, and, that climate scientists predicted more of the same “catastrophic” weather down under?
The creation of an economy-wide market for greenhouse gas emissions is as the heart of the climate bill that cleared the House earlier this year. But with the health care fight still raging and the economy still hurting, moderate Democrats have littl
Global-warming catastrophist James Hansen of NASA seems to be unhappy that he's catching flak for the Climategate revelations. Hansen complains,..."The next day another popular blog concluded that I deserved capital punishment. ...
The researchers used a long-term model for assessing climate change, confirming a similar British study released this month that said calculations for man-made global warming may be underestimated by between 30 and 50 percent.
in order for a certain interesting scientific hypothesis to be creditable we needed a particularly miserable winter this year. In short the hypothesis was predicting a bad winter and we were about to have a stress test. How do you like it so far?
Hey, Al Gore! Add this to your “global warming” fraud list of things to ignore. The Farmer’s Almanac is right 80 – 85% of the time, and is predicting extreme cold.
a mountain of manufactured hysteria, predictable cupidity, antic demagoguery and dubious science — labored mightily and gave birth to a mouselet, a 12-paragraph document committing the signatories to . . . make a list.
Four years ago, Jamie Leigh Jones, a 20-year old Texas contract employee working in Iraq, was drugged, stripped, beaten and gang-raped by her co-workers on her fourth day in country. She finally managed to get a phone call out from the shipping conta
Man's best friend could be one of the environment's worst enemies, according to a new study which says the carbon pawprint of a pet dog is more than double that of a gas-guzzling sports utility vehicle.
If a ton of manure causes a strong smell, then two tons of manure is not going to produce a lovely scent. Something else is happening.
If you're ever wondering why, for college-level papers, citations from Wikipedia are generally not allowed, the National Post's Lawrence Solomon offers a good reason (hat tip to Climate Audit):
Delegates, journalists, activists and observers from almost 200 countries have gathered at the Copenhagen climate talks will generate more carbon emissions than is produced each year by 2,300 Americans or 660,000 Ethiopians.
