For some time now, the ongoing rise in the atmosphere’s CO2 concentration has been claimed to be raising havoc – or just about to be doing so – with earth’s calcifying marine organisms by lowering the calcium carbonate saturation state of seawater, which phenomenon has been predicted to greatly hamper the abilities of these creatures to produce their… Read More »
One of the especially nasty predictions of climate alarmists is that global warming will lead to the extinctions of hordes of species of plants and animals, among which is the ubiquitous butterfly. For an in-depth discussion of this subject, see our major report The Specter of Species Extinction: Will Global Warming Decimate Earth's Biosphere. For a synopsis of… Read More »

(“The physical science behind climate change,” SciAm August 2007, pp.64-73) assert that the mismatch between surface and troposphere warming trends has now been resolved. However, this claim is not supported by actual observations.
Martin Durkin says his British documentary rejecting the idea of human-caused global warming has survived last week’s roasting by the ABC | July 21, 2007 WHEN I agreed to make The Great Global Warming Swindle, I was warned a middle-class fatwa would be placed on my head.
Abstract Long-term warming of late spring (April–June) air temperatures has been proposed by Stirling et al. [Stirling, I., Lunn, N.J., Iacozza, J., 1999. Long-term trends in the population ecology of polar bears in western Hudson Bay in relation to climatic change. Arctic 52, 294–306] as the ‘‘ultimate’’ factor causing earlier sea-ice break-up around western Hudson Bay (WH) that… Read More »
WASHINGTON — A spate of deadly chlorine bomb attacks in Iraq is prompting the Bush administration to urge nearly 3,000 municipal water treatment plants in the United States to make sure their chlorine gas is well protected — spotlighting what Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff has singled out as a "gap in our system of regulation."
