Global Warming Gloom and Doom Haven’t Occurred

Updated: 01/21/2009 - For more than 20 years, we have been hearing doomsday predictions about global warming’s effects on Kansas and across the world. Locally, during the hot Kansas summer of 2006, forecasts were issued and media articles written tying that hot, dry weather to global warming, and forecasting more extreme heat in the future. More drought? The reality: 2007 and 2008 were the two wettest years in the history of Wichita. No area of Kansas is experiencing drought at the present time, in spite of all that hand-wringing just two years ago. Extreme heat? The reality: The past two years, combined, had 21 fewer days than average with 90-degree or higher temperatures. Since 1990, there has been a downward trend in 100-degree or warmer temperatures in Wichita.

Questions for Obama’s Science Guy

Updated: 01/21/2009 - In nominating John Holdren to be director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy - the position known informally as White House science adviser - President-elect Barack Obama has enlisted an undisputed Big Name among academic environmentalists. He is also a doom-and-gloomer with a trail of erroneous apocalyptic forecasts dating back nearly 40 years - and a decided lack of tolerance for environmental opinions that conflict with his.

Cooling The Planet By Growing The Right Crops

Posted: 01/17/2009 - By carefully selecting which varieties of food crops to cultivate, much of Europe and North America could be cooled by up to 1°C during the summer growing season, say researchers from the University of Bristol, UK. This is equivalent to an annual global cooling of over 0.1°C, almost 20% of the total global temperature increase since the Industrial Revolution.

'Global Warming' - Where's the Science?

Posted: 01/13/2009 - “Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Every time you exhale, you exhale air that has 4 percent carbon dioxide. To say that that’s a pollutant just boggles my mind. What used to be science has turned into a cult.” “I have spent a long research career studying physics that is closely related to the greenhouse effect, for example, absorption and emission of visible and infrared radiation, and fluid flow,” he said in the statement. “Based on my experience, I am convinced that the current alarm over carbon dioxide is mistaken.”

Al Gore is Feeling An Inconvenient Chill

Posted: 01/12/2009 - You have to wrap up well against this global warming. Global average temperatures hit a peak in 1998, but have been declining since. Now, to the further embarrassment of alarmists, Kerry Emanuel, professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, who first advanced the thesis of a connection between global warming and hurricanes, has rejected his own theory after further research. Bad luck for Al Gore, who used the image of a hurricane emerging from a smoke stack to promote his fantasy extravaganza An Inconvenient Truth.

Global Warming and 'Cherry Picking'

Posted: 01/12/2009 - They cannot forecast correctly the Pacific for 60 days and we are forced to believe they can envision the weather in 100 years. My friends, the real fact is that when Europe suffers a heat wave they rush to point global warming and CO2 as a cause, but when the continent suffers a major cold snap is just natural variability.

CNN's Lou Dobbs: "Global Warming is Almost a Religion..."

Posted: 01/12/2009 - From illegal immigration and trade to voter fraud, CNN’s Lou Dobbs is never shy about expressing his opinions. That rule held true when Dobbs brought up global warming on Jan. 5. The outspoken host of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” observed that global warming activists treat their belief in global warming like a religion following a segment about the issue by CNN correspondent Ines Ferre. Dobbs also said that data is cherry-picked to make the case for global warming alarmism. Ferre alluded to the $175 “cow tax” that some farmers feel is a possibility and could increase their operating costs. Ferre said the Environment Protection Agency has denied it is considering a tax on livestock. However, Rick Krause, senior director of congressional relations for the American Farm Bureau, told the Business & Media Institute it is a possibility - especially based on the rhetoric of President-elect Barack Obama and the use of the EPA to combat global warming.

Wind Energy Supply Dips During Cold Snap

Posted: 01/12/2009 - Britain’s wind farms have stopped working during the cold snap due to lack of wind...At times of high demand in cold weather there is a tendency for there to be no wind...Renewables, such as wind, have a big part to play now and in the future but in order to guarantee a secure electricity supply it's clear we need a mix of power stations including cleaner coal, new nuclear and gas.
