Maryland Climate Change

By | August 7, 2008

In this document, we provide these overlooked, but nevertheless vital analyses. In doing so, we find that there is scant evidence that “global warming” is or has impacted Maryland’s climate to any large degree, instead we find while Maryland’s temperatures have been slowly rising fom more than a century, that natural year-to-year and decade- to-decade scale variations dominate… Read More »

Observed Climate Change in Wisconsin

By | July 25, 2008

In April 2007, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle signed Executive Order 191 creating the Governor’s Task Force on Global Warming and tasked it with developing a plan of action to reduce Wisconsin’s greenhouse gas emissions. Citing that “the failure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could raise Wisconsin temperatures, increase the severity of droughts, further reduce water levels in Lake… Read More »

Prejudiced Authors, Prejudiced Findings

By | July 15, 2008

The IPCC is a single-interest organisation, whose charter presumes a widespread human influence on climate, rather than consideration of whether such influence may be negligible or missing altogether. Though the IPCC’s principles also state that a wide range of views is to be sought when selecting lead authors and contributing authors, this rule has been honored more in… Read More »

Observed Climate Change in New Hampshire

By | July 15, 2008

In December 2007, New Hampshire Governor John Lynch signed an Executive Order calling for the establishment of a “Task Force to develop a Climate Change Action Plan” for the state of New Hampshire. The Task Force’s Climate Action Plan is due to the governor by September 1, 2008 and is to include a recommendation of “quantified goals for… Read More »

Observed climate change in West Virginia

By | May 12, 2008

Annual temperature: Over the course of the past 113 years, the time since statewide records have been compiled by the U.S. National Climatic Data Center, the statewide annual average temperature history of West Virginia exhibits no statistically significant trend either towards cooling or warming. Instead, the temperature history of West Virginia is dominated by inter-annual and inter-decadal variability.

Observed Climate Change and Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in Wyoming

By | April 16, 2008

Annual temperature: The historical time series of statewide annual temperatures in Wyoming begins in 1895. Over the entire record, there has been an upward trend, which has resulted in temperatures in the early 21st century being about 2ºF warmer than temperatures 100 years ago. Despite this long-term rise however, the record is largely dominated by annual and decadal-scale… Read More »

Observed Climate Change, Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in S. Carolina

By | March 18, 2008

Concern over the potential impacts of climate change led South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford to issue an Executive Order on February 16, 2007 to create a Climate, Energy and Commerce Advisory Committee tasked with developing an Action Plan for the state of South Carolina in order to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions. Governor Sanford cited as a need for… Read More »

Demographic and Ecological Perspectives on the Status of Polar Bears

By | March 14, 2008

Although two polar bear subpopulations (Western Hudson Bay and Southern Beaufort Sea) no longer appear to be viable due to reduction in sea ice habitat, polar bears as a species do not appear to be threatened by extinction in the foreseeable future from either a demographic or an ecological perspective. Ecological perspectives that suggest the reductions to survival… Read More »

Observed climate change in Arkansas

By | March 10, 2008

THERE IS no observational evidence of unusual long-term climate changes in Arkansas. No emissions reductions by Arkansas will have any detectable regional or global effect whatsoever on climate change.
