A Life of Activism Gives You Hope, Energy and Direction

Every generation faces a unique political reality and set of concerns it needs to tackle together and yours is the multiple threats to the earth itself from over-exploitation, pollution and the growth imperative. From the diminishing life in the oceans, and the destruction of old growth forests, to the clear limits of a fossil fuel economy, our Mother Earth is suffering.

Beyond Obama’s Plan: A New Economic Vision for Addressing Climate Change

Missing from the climate change debate is an economic vision that can transition the US/global economy out of carbon-based energy and into renewable energies, while simultaneously increasing productivity and reducing the amount of the earth’s resources used in the economic process.

Geoengineering WON’T Stop Global Warming, Warns Study

From aerosols iron fertilization of the sea to cloud seeding and greening deserts, scientists are conjuring up an increasing array of geoengineering techniques to battle climate change. But this type of ‘climate engineering’ will ultimately fail to prevent global warming, according to a new report

Jane Goodall: Governments Must Challenge Fossil Fuel Corporations

Jane Goodall: Governments Must Challenge Fossil Fuel Corporations

Jane Goodall has stressed the need for governments to challenge the fossil fuel industry in order to confront the climate crisis. The “window of time” left to act on the climate crisis requires individual action, the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace said. But politicians must act as well, and that means “governments standing up to the big corporations, the oil and gas industry.”

A Heated Debate: Are Climate Scientists Being Forced to Toe the Line?

After joining a controversial lobby group critical of climate change, meteorologist Lennart Bengtsson claims he was shunned by colleagues, leading him to quit. Some scientists complain pressure to conform to consensus opinion has become a serious hindrance in the field.

Why Global Warming Failed

Ben Davidson: Climate change is very real. But, global warming models/predictions have been an abject failure for 20 years. And yet the IPCC claims ever-higher certainty? How does this happen and what comes next?

Marco Rubio: Climate Change Is Not Man-Made

Source:Western Journalism Marco Rubio says that climate change is a natural occurrence, and that human activity is not causing the dramatic climate changes.  Rubio also does not believe that the laws that that are being proposed to mitigate climate change will have any impact – except that they will destroy our economy. Transcript follows: This week the White […]

Long-Standing Climate Paradox Resolved

Long-Standing Climate Paradox Resolved

A team of researchers showed that the Nevada climate has followed earth’s orbital variations like clockwork over the past 175,000 years, getting warmer and colder between conditions like today and the ice ages. The intensity of summertime solar radiation controlled temperature variations. These data help resolve the long-standing paradox from Devils Hole.

Harvard Professor on IPCC and the Scientific Integrity of the “Summary for Policymakers” Report

Harvard professor Robert N. Stavins stated the following regarding the IPCC’s “Summary for Policymakers” (SPM) document: “I was surprised by the degree to which governments felt free to recommend and sometimes insist on detailed changes to the SPM text on purely political, as opposed to scientific bases”

An Unlikely Alliance Remaking The Climate Movement

An Unlikely Alliance Remaking The Climate Movement

The coalition of cowboys and Indians offers a radical departure from the environmental movement long criticized for being led by the so-called Big Greens — largely white, middle class membership groups whose interests don’t often represent those actually living in the frontline communities where the pipeline will be built. Moreover, it is a model of relationship-based organizing.

The Reality of Long Range Weather and Climate Forecasting – Piers Corbyn

The Reality of Long Range Weather and Climate Forecasting – Piers Corbyn

In his talk, Piers Corbyn describes the failure of standard meteorology (SM) in outlook, theory, and practice. He included: signals in real meteorology data unexplained by SM; real role of jet stream, stratosphere, electro-jets, magnetosphere, solar wind, solar corona, and the Moon; the total inability of SM to explain: sudden stratospheric warmings and its consequences, tropical storm intensifications, angular momentum concentration in tornadoes; and the need for something else such as electromagnetic plasma explanations; the theoretical basis of non-standard long range weather forecasting on a real planet; a summary on his WeatherAction forecasting skill and examples; and the future of forecasting and meteorology, climate ‘science’ and science in general.

Corrective Climate Change Ahead

Corrective Climate Change Ahead

Global greenhouse gas emissions during the last ten years have been the highest in Human History according to a leaked report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Without drastic action, ‘temperatures will increase by 4 to 5 centigrade that could reap devastating effects on the planet’ they said. Personally I don’t see the global population being able to respond quickly enough. That said, I am an optimist, because I believe in realignment; in that the earth has a resilient, self-regulating eco-system. When challenged in this way, she may take a little time, but make no mistake, she will respond.

Is global warming just a giant natural fluctuation?

Is global warming just a giant natural fluctuation?

An analysis of temperature data since 1500 all but rules out the possibility that global warming in the industrial era is just a natural fluctuation in the earth’s climate, according to a new study by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy. The study, published online April 6 in the journal Climate Dynamics, represents a new approach to the question of whether global warming in the industrial era has been caused largely by man-made emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Rather than using complex computer models to estimate the effects of greenhouse-gas emissions, Lovejoy examines historical data to assess the competing hypothesis: that warming over the past century is due to natural long-term variations in temperature.
