DOE-NETL: Opposition to Coal Will Reduce Electricity Reliability, Harm US Economy Print E-mail
Written by Excerpt from Summary   
Monday, 02 June 2008 07:56
In an April 2008 white paper entitled, "Natural Gas and Electricity Costs and Impacts on Industry", the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) reported that opposition to new coal-based power plants is leading to a generation capacity shortage in many areas of the country and endangering U.S. energy security. The opposition is also inducing a "dash to gas" and quickly causing a rise in natural gas prices at a time when federal climate change legislation could immediately lead to a doubling of natural gas consumption for power generation. This legislation would increase the country's dependence on foreign energy sources in the form of liquefied natural gas (LNG) causing both natural gas and electricity prices to increase dramatically.

A one-page summary of the white paper can be found here: Full One-Page Summary

Observed climate change in West Virginia Print E-mail

Monday, 12 May 2008 07:25
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.

Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate Print E-mail
Written by S. Fred Singer

“In his speech at the United Nations’ climate conference on September 24, 2007, Dr. Vaclav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic, said it would most help the debate on climate change if the current monopoly and one-sidedness of the scientific debate over climate change by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was eliminated. He reiterated his proposal that the UN organize a parallel panel and publish two competing reports.

The present report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) does exactly that. It is an independent examination of the evidence available in the published, peer-reviewed literature – examined without bias and selectivity. It includes many research papers ignored by the IPCC, plus additional scientific results that became available after the IPCC deadline of May 2006.”

Internal Radiative Forcing And The Illusion Of A Sensitive Climate System Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Roy Spencer   
Tuesday, 22 April 2008 20:39
1. Background

Many of us, especially those who were trained as meteorologists, have long questioned the climate research community’s reliance on computerized climate models for global warming projections. In contrast to our perception that the real climate system is constantly readjusting to internal fluctuations in ways that stabilize the system, climate models built upon measured climate behavior invariably suggest a climate system that is quite sensitive - sometimes catastrophically sensitive — to perturbations such as those from anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately, it has been difficult to articulate our ‘hand-waving’ concerns in ways that the modelers would appreciate, i.e., through equations.

"Climate Change is more important than cleaning up dog-mess" - Gore Print E-mail
Written by Christopher Monkton   
Monday, 21 April 2008 09:08
The scare: In an interview on 21 April 2008 with a passively acquiescent and incurious Clodagh Hartley in The Sun , Britain’s top-selling tabloid newspaper, Al Gore said recent opinion polls had found that, while people rate climate change as a “serious problem”, some rank it lower than clearing up dog mess. Gore said the situation is ever more urgent; that world leaders must change laws “to stop pollution pouring into the atmosphere and affecting the climate”; that the US is the “worst offender” in the “crisis” and has “failed to live up to the Kyoto Protocol”; that “the entire North Polar icecap is melting … and is going to imminently disappear”; and that “long-life light bulbs, recycling, window treatments and extra insulation … can all help”. The Sun added that some scientists expect sea level to rise up to 34 inches by 2100; and that cows and livestock contribute two-fifths of methane emissions.

The Government Grant System: Inhibitor of Truth and Innovation? Print E-mail
Written by Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD   
Sunday, 20 April 2008 20:36
Flush with success in creating an atom bomb, the U.S. federal government decided it should start funding nonmilitary scientific research. A government report titled "Science, the Endless Frontier" provides the justification for doing this. It makes the case that "science is the responsibility of government because new scientific knowledge vitally affects our health, our jobs, and our national security" (Bush, 1945). Accordingly, the government established a Research Grants Office in January, 1946 to award grants for research in the biomedical and physical sciences.

This is a guy who was advisor for Margaret Thatcher and the reason why I wanted to bring him on, fascinating to spend a couple of minutes to talk to the guy who is the guy who actually brought Al Gore to court or The Inconvenient Truth, who spearheaded the effort to get a balanced view taught in schools in England.

When 'green' is shorthand for environmental idiocy Print E-mail
Written by Bjorn Lomborg   
Thursday, 17 April 2008 20:38
When it comes to all things "green," common sense seems to have been abandoned. Our failure to think clearly about such matters would be amusing if the potential consequences were not so serious. Consider the recent "lights out" campaign that supposedly should energize the world about the problems of climate change by urging citizens in 27 big cities to turn out their lights for an hour. With scores of companies and municipalities signing up, and even the monarchies of Denmark and Sweden turning off the lights in their many palaces,

Observed Climate Change and Negligible Global Effect of Greenhouse-gas Emission Limits in Wyoming Print E-mail
Written by Staff   
Wednesday, 16 April 2008 05:40
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 variability. The run of recent warm years comes on the heels of a period of falling temperatures that extended from the early 1950s through the early 1980s. Previous to then, temperatures warmed rapidly from the 1910s through the 1930s. The highest annual average statewide temperature was observed in 1934.

The scares:
The World Health Organization announced on 7 April 2008 that millions of Asians could face poverty, disease and hunger as a result of rising temperatures and increased rainfall. The WHO’s regional director for Asia said that malaria, diarrhea, malnutrition and floods cause an estimated 150,000 deaths annually in the region. A WHO adviser on malaria and other parasitic diseases added climate change in combination with unchecked human development has contributed to the problem.

Nasa scientist warns the world must urgently make huge CO2 reductions

Ed Pilkington, The Guardian, Monday, 7 April, 2008. Commentary by Christopher Monckton


The scare: One of the world's leading climate scientists warns today that the EU and its international partners must urgently rethink targets for cutting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere because of fears they have grossly underestimated the scale of the problem. In a startling reappraisal of the threat, James Hansen, head of the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, calls for a sharp reduction in CO2 limits.

THe REAL invonvenient truth, Zealotry over Warming Could Damage Earth More than Climate Change Print E-mail
Written by Nigel Lawson   
Monday, 07 April 2008 10:43
Over the past half-century, we have become used to planetary scares. In the late Sixties, we were told of a population explosion that would lead to global starvation. Then, a little later, we were warned the world was running out of natural resources. By the Seventies, when global temperatures began to dip, many eminent scientists warned us that we faced a new Ice Age.

But the latest scare, global warming, has engaged the political and opinion-forming classes to a greater extent than any of these.

The scare: The BBC published an article by its “environment analyst”, commenting on an announcement by the World Meteorological Organization that 2008 was likely to be the tenth successive year in which global temperatures had not risen. The BBC’s story stressed that the stasis in global temperatures was only temporary and that anthropogenic “global warming” would inexorably resume.

Climate alarmists are alarmed, scaremongers scared, for their predictions of catastrophe are not coming true. "Global warming" has stopped. For 10 years, average temperatures on earth have not risen. For seven years, the trend has been downward. The fall between January 2007 and January 2008 was the biggest since records began in 1880.
