Climate scientists were put in there place this week.
For years, the non-climate experts have been shouting at us that these so-called climate experts are feeding us a pile of falsehoods…and it turns out they might be right. Read the rest of this entry
It’s hard to think about things like global warming (or climate change if you prefer) while some of us have been enjoying unseasonably cool late-summer temperatures, but a UN panel is forcing the issue.
According to the panels report, they’re 95 percent certain that humans are responsible for the dramatic climate change since 1950 (before that, it’s all on the dinosaurs).
That’s up five percent from the last report in 2007, which was 90 percent certain that humankind is to blame. Read the rest of this entry
With another Earth Hour come and gone (3/23), it seems like a good time to reflect on global warming (or is it going by climate change now?).
Global warming has always been a sensitive topic. On one side, you have those who believe that the earth’s climate is dramatically changing for the worst want everyone else to know what they know. On the other side, you have those who really don’t care, and just the other side to leave them and their incandescent light bulbs alone.
It may be that this highly-debated subject may not be as controversial as we thought. Read the rest of this entry
The face of the “stop global warming” campaign, may soon be out of a job.
Yes, that’s right, polar bears are officially saved (sort of).
It gets better, there are two hypothetical scenarios in which polar bears could not face an untimely demise.
Scenario #1: We completely change our ways, and avoid the complete destruction of summer sea ice. Thereby, not completely wiping them out.
Okay, so that one sounds just a teeny bit too optimistic, but that’s why there’s an alternative.
Scenario #2: We keep going at our current pace, and they’ll be fine. They’re bears, they can just walk it off.
Sure their summer home could ultimately be reduced to a thin, icy refuge between Greenland and Canada.
But they’re other option is extinction, they don’t really have any room to complain about square footage.
So there you have it, another species nearly wiped off the face of the earth, and then saved by humankind’s over the top optimism and/or passiveness.

Before all you Earth enthusiasts out there start planning your victory celebrations, you should know that many don’t understand why global warming is happening.
To put that in more depressing terms, if there was going to be a test on the knowledge of global warming 8 percent know enough to earn an A or B grade and more than 52 percent would flunk.
No big deal, right? Flunking that hypothetical test is a little tough (maybe the imaginary teacher will offer some extra credit assignments), but in the grand scheme of things it’s not too bad.
At least these 63 percent are willing to admit that something resembling global warming does exist.
Plus, it’s sort of honorable that they don’t want to point the finger of blame. I mean, how important are the reasons behind global warming anyway? Unless, of course, your actually planning on doing something about it.
But let’s not jump to that kind of action too quickly. After all, we are only at 63 percent.
