I Blame Global Warming for…..
It is amazing what can happen when global warming alarmists reach a fevered pitch. To whit: Big snow flakes fell early Friday evening, turning Downtown Boise into a giant snow globe for people on their way home from work. snip At 10 p.m., the Weather Service said 1.7 inches of snow had fallen. The previous earliest recorded snowfall was Oct. 12, 1969, when a little | Read More »
Bias at the BBC?

Updated: Polar Bears are Safer Now, and Colder Too!
Courtesy of a post by Julie Walsh at OpenMarket.org, we learn from The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) that Arctic sea ice extent, after reaching its seasonal minimum last week, has begun its annual cyclical increase in response to the setting sun. A cooler melt season, retention of first-year ice, and dispersive ice motion set the 2008 melt season apart from 2007. Overview | Read More »
UK – Breaking the law due to “global warming” is now legal.
Honest: I thought that the link below was going be a re-direct to The National Lampoon, The Onion, or some other parody site. But alas, ’twas not to be. It’s real and from The UK. Jury decides that threat of global warming justifies breaking the law. … … … … Coming soon to a United States Federal Court near you, a grand epic: Dog Eat | Read More »
This is a funny GW video worth the watch, this kid is fantastic!
If you haven’t seen this, it is pretty funny. We have to be able to laugh at our own too. See Video
Today’s “AGW” Story
Kayak: $1200. Supplies: $12,000 Making a laughing-stock of yourself: Priceless: I saw on television news on Friday a chap canoeing across part of the Arctic ocean to raise world consciousness about “disappearing” ice sheets. The last time I looked he was trapped in some ice. (Emphasis mine. H/T – Tim Blair.) Trying to impose an ideology onto reality only serves to make you a candidate | Read More »
Longest recorded streak of sunspot inactivity broken
Via Slashdot comes the report that The Sun has broken a 95 year old record. Quoting the Daily Tech: The sun has reached a milestone not seen for nearly 100 years: an entire month has passed without a single visible sunspot being noted. The event is significant as many climatologists now believe solar magnetic activity – which determines the number of sunspots — is an | Read More »
It’s Not Easy Being Green
Note: This was originally going to cover both conventions, to really get a picture of the energy use. Unfortunately, the setup is different here and I can’t really get a late night walkaround. So I’m going to post the coverage from last week. If there was one message heard loud and clear at the Democratic National Convention this year, it was "Be Green!" Everywhere you | Read More »
Allow me to say with trepidation that as a newcomer I am not comfortable starting a diary so soon, and will not make this a habit for various reasons (Time is a big one!). But since I could not find a logical topic right now for this, here it is. Sunspot activity, which goes in 11-year cycles, has been completely dormant for weeks recently. For | Read More »
Democratic Leadership: America Can’t Have Big Cars
Democratic Representative Eliot Engel, a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, recently appeared with Neil Cavuto to talk about America’s energy crisis:
Apollo 7’s, Walt Cunningham speaks out on man’s contribution(?) to global warming.
Launch Magazine’s July-August issue features a piece by the famous Apollo 7 astronaut, Walt Cunningham. There are excellent correlations between the regular fluctuations of the Sun and the Earth’s temperature, while scientists cannot find a relationship between industrial activity, energy consumption, and global temperatures. But global warming is an issue no longer being decided in the scientific arena. I’ve noticed over the past several months, | Read More »
Paul Krugman is nuts.
What is this garbage? The only way we’re going to get action [to stop the theoretical anthopogenic global warming], I’d suggest, is if those who stand in the way of action come to be perceived as not just wrong but immoral. Incidentally, that’s why I was disappointed with Barack Obama’s response to Mr. McCain’s energy posturing — that it was “the same old politics.” Mr. | Read More »
House Majority Whip Clyburn Says Climate Change Hurts Blacks More
I thought someone else here would beat me to it, but apparently not. Anyways, we all knew it was a matter of time before something like this happened. It seems like you can blame just about anything on the magical theory (read: religion) of global warming and twist and contort it to say just about anything about it, its effects, and who all it hurts | Read More »
Global Warming Produces New Oil Boon
Well, Well, Well Hollywood couldn’t have written a more ironic twist to the potential outcome of global warming. While Man-made global warming alarmists are cowering in retreat from the recent rash of scientists and data(pdf) disputing and disproving their positions (like the fact that sea levels have been declining, not rising, for the last two years), an unintended yet very welcome circumstance has presented itself.
