• How To Starve Africa: Ask The European Green Party

    • Date: 08/06/16
    • David Zaruk, The Risk-Monger

    There is a commonly shared neo-colonialist expression: The Europeans have the watches; the Africans have the time. Today, the European Green Party, with the support of countless environmentalist NGOs, proposed an initiative in the European Parliament to make Africa wait for at least another generation to be able to lift itself out of poverty. The […]

  • U.S. Wind-Energy Sector Gets $176 Billion Worth of Crony Capitalism

    • Date: 06/06/16
    • Robert Bryce, National Review

    It takes enormous amounts of taxpayer cash to make wind energy seem affordable. Last month, during its annual conference, the American Wind Energy Association issued a press release trumpeting the growth of wind-energy capacity. It quoted the association’s CEO, Tom Kiernan, who declared that the wind business is “an American success story.” There’s no doubt […]

  • The Green Blob Identifies Itself

    • Date: 03/06/16
    • Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism

    In July 2014, MP and former environment secretary Owen Paterson introduced the term “Green Blob”: I leave the post with great misgivings about the power and irresponsibility of – to coin a phrase – the Green Blob. By this I mean the mutually supportive network of environmental pressure groups, renewable energy companies and some public […]

  • Judith Curry On The Cloud-Climate Conundrum

    • Date: 03/06/16
    • Judith Curry, Climate Etc

    Four new papers remind us of the very large uncertainties surrounding cloud-climate feedbacks. CERN CERN’s CLOUD Experiment recently published three new papers: * Ion induced nucleation of pure biogenic particles * The role of low-volatility organic compounds in initial particle growth in the atmosphere * New particle formation in the free troposphere: A question of chemistry […]

  • CERN Results Strengthen Svensmark’s Cosmic Ray-Climate Theory

    • Date: 31/05/16
    • Pierre Gosselin, No Tricks Zone

    Looking at the English-language media, one might be led to think that the latest CERN experimental results show that trees alone dominate cloud formation, by supplying the necessary cloud seeding medium. Little reference is made to cosmic rays acting as the cloud formation modulator, initiating the cloud seeding process, as hypothesized by Henrik Svensmark. Lubos […]

  • DNA Testing: Polar Bear ‘Hybrid’ Or Blonde Grizzly?

    • Date: 25/05/16
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    That putative polar bear hybrid shot in Arviat last week has been sent for DNA testing. Just out from NunatsiaqOnline (24 May 2016): Nunavut biologist sends possible “grolar” bear DNA for analysis: Unusual bear killed in Arviat could just be a blonde grizzly bear Additional details confirm the animal shot was a female, which could […]

  • Goodbye El Niño: Pacific Ocean Temps Dropping Fast

    • Date: 23/05/16
    • Bob Tisdale, Watts Up With That

    The sea surface temperature anomalies of the NINO3.4 region of the equatorial Pacific are bordered by the coordinates of 5S-5N, 170W-120W.  They are used by NOAA and other meteorological agencies to define when an El Niño event is taking place.  According to the most-recent weekly satellite-enhanced data, the temperature anomalies for that region have dropped […]

  • 200.000 Years Of Climate Change

    • Date: 21/05/16
    • Clive Best

    Ed Hawkins’s Polar Plot animation of warming had a big impact. So I thought I would try the same trick with the 200,000 year record of temperature anomalies from Antarctica measured by the EPICA ice core data. At its peak the Eemian was 3C warmer than the Holocene. The Epica temperature data for last 200k years. The first rapid warming is […]
