Posted: 11/12/2008 - Marxism, Freudianism, global warming. These are proof - of which history offers so many examples - that people can be suckers on a grand scale. To their fanatical followers they are a substitute for religion. Global warming, in particular, is a creed, a faith, a dogma that has little to do with science. If people are in need of religion, why don’t they just turn to the genuine article?- Paul Johnson
Updated: 11/12/2008 - GISS’s October Data for Russia is actually September readings.
Updated: 11/12/2008 - This year is on track to be about the 10th warmest globally since records began in 1850...said Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. Icecap Note: Recall it was Jones early in January 2007 who warned 2007 would be the warmest year on record (not even close). Oscar note: Jones specifically states "There's nothing wrong with land (temperature) measurements". Nothing could be further from the truth.

Updated: 11/10/2008 - There may be sound reasons to switch from existing energy sources to renewables, including the need to slash greenhouse gas emissions, the need to reduce our dependence on Middle Eastern oil, and the need to meet growing energy demand. If Americans wish to pay for a wholesale transformation of the energy industry, that is their choice. But let’s not lie about the costs, and let’s not espouse an economic fallacy that is nearly 160 years old. Obama’s “green jobs” plan would indeed create jobs, but it would do so by killing other jobs. Is that really the type of energy policy Americans want?
Posted: 11/10/2008 - From California to Missouri, four of five environmental initiatives lost at the ballot box. Voters are clearly still not ready for exorbitant costs and excessive regulation without clear benefits. President-elect Obama may have felt “a righteous wind” at his back during the campaign, but it did not translate into environmental victories at the ballot box, where one green initiative after another failed for a variety of reasons.
Posted: 11/10/2008 - A study reported in today’s [Nov. 7] issue of Nature disputes a longstanding picture of how ice sheets influence ocean circulation during glacial periods. The distribution of sunlight, rather than the size of North American ice sheets, is the key variable in changes in the North Atlantic deep-water formation during the last four glacial cycles, according to the article.
Posted: 11/10/2008 - Arctic ice extent is the highest this Nov 7 than it has been on this date since 2002.
Posted: 11/10/2008 - Science facts along with more scientists are inconveniently cooling Al Gore's warming rhetoric.
Posted: 11/10/2008 - UN panel chairman is conveniently ignoring the scientific facts about the trend in global temperatures, which is down, not up.
Updated: 11/10/2008 - Like a gigantic bell, the sun reverberates at myriad frequencies, and by studying such oscillations, scientists have deciphered the structure of the star closest to our planet and our hearts. Now, new satellite measurements of distant stars may pave the way to similar studies of their interiors, too.
Updated: 11/10/2008 - Every few minutes, short-lived portals open on the dayside of Earth's magnetic field, new satellite observations reveal. During that time, Earth and the sun are locked in a magnetic tangle that could trigger the geomagnetic storms that occasionally bedevil satellite communications and electrical power systems on the ground

Posted: 11/07/2008 - La Nina is gradually returning. The Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI) has dropped to -0.74 in October, well into weak La Nina territory. The tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures all the way from South America to beyond the dateline are back below normal. The North Pacific as a whole remains strongly in the cold mode (negative PDO). The Atlantic is weakly in its warm mode (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation is positive). The sun recently showing slight signs of life is still at solar minimum levels. The winds in the stratosphere over the tropical Pacific are blowing anomalously westerly) in their Quasi Biennial Oscillation. All these conditions point to another cold winter in all but the southeastern United States.
