Ocean methane hydrates – the hidden canary?

Ocean Floor methane hydrate

On the ocean floor, there is some frozen stuff called ‘methane hydrates.’ Methane hydrates have been known to oceanographers and oil and gas people for a while now, but they started gaining mainstream attention when their arctic land cousins became yet another poster child for climate change. In the ocean, methane hydrates only form in cold waters under quite a bit ... Read More »

Yet another unknown “carbon sink” revealed

Recently, NASA released the results of a study of the temperatures of the waters of Earth’s deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years. Owing to a ‘global pause‘ in rising temperatures, climate scientists have increasingly having to resort to other processes in nature to ... Read More »

Why are Global Warming Alarmists resorting to bullying tactics?

Before Copernicus: Sun revolving around the Earth

Earlier this week, Lennart Bengtsson, a research fellow at the University of Reading in the U.K, and a climate scientist with over 200 pages on the subject claimed he had been bullied into leaving the Nigel Lawson’s Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) because people he had worked with were withdrawing support, others now refused to be co-author’s on climate papers with ...

I’m a Climate Realist – not a skeptic!

A Climate Realist

I think it’s time to start a new meme – Climate Realist. I’m proud to be a Climate Realist and I invite everyone to become a Climate Realist, and thus really allow the human race to move forward to an environmentally sustainable future, rather than continue to act like Chicken Little and endlessly debate, is it or isn’t it warming? ...

Are we really 99% sure man is causing climate change?

Refinery

Shaun Lovejoy thinks so. Shaun is a professor of physics at McGill University, so he’s a Physicist, and therefore should know what he is talking about, right? Well, this month he got an article published in Climate Dynamics in which he reports that there is a “greater than 99.9% confidence that climate change is happening because of greenhouse gas emissions ...

Why are there still global warming skeptics?

The Carbon Cycle

James Lawrence Powell reviewed 2,258 papers on climate science published between November 2012 and December 2013 and said that of all those papers, only one rejected man was the cause of warming on Planet Earth at this time. The science is settled! Or is it? Despite this exhaustive review of papers, there is still a very stubborn contingency of scientists ... Read More »

Are we absolutely sure the oceans are warming faster than ever?

Ocean’s are the hottest they’ve ever been in the last 10,000 years! Or so screamed the headlines, casting yet another death knell on humanity’s relationship with climate. Or so the media would hope! Afterall, the only thing making the planet warm in the last 10,000 years is mankind, right? It’s our annoying habit of burning up all the fossil fuels ... Read More »

Do Professional Science bodies speak for ALL their membership?

Crowd

On August 5th, 2013, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) released a ‘Position Statement’ on Climate Change, rather bluntly blaming humanity. The full Position Statement on their website requires a PDF reader and can be read here. The bottom of the AGU news release announcing their Position Statement makes mention that they are “a not-for-profit, professional, scientific organization representing more than ... Read More »

Picnic on Triton, anyone?

Geyser on triton

Picture this if you will… The ground is a pale pink colour speckled with warm shades of brown. 10ft away from you a gentle fine mist of gas blasts up into the black skies above. The sun’s heat, an unheard high at minus 235 Celsius gently beats down on you and your partner. Ah… A glorious Sunday afternoon near a ... Read More »
