  • Your Daily Devotional for March 21, 2018

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Peter Sinclair, a long time advocate of environmental awareness and energy alternatives

  • Climate Denial’s Day in Court
    Above, CEO of Shell – “my next buy is and electric car”. Below, an extraordinary “day in court” for climate science. NYTimes: SAN FRANCISCO — There were no test tubes or Bunsen burners, but a courtroom turned into a science classroom Wednesday for a U.S. judge considering lawsuits that accuse big oil companies of lying […]
  • “Limited” Nuclear War Could be Planetary Catastrophe
    It’s 1962 again. Mashable: It’s winter, 2018, in Iowa, five months after the last of the nuclear bombs detonated across megacities in northeast Asia, from Seoul to Tokyo to Shanghai. Radioactive fallout was the initial concern, but now something else is going awry: the weather. American farmers accustomed to snow and cold during the winter […]
  • New Research: Could North Atlantic Current be Slowing?
    I took some heat for the above video from some who questioned whether  the slowdown of the North Atlantic current, discussed here, was still a live issue in climate science.  My take evolved, having heard from heavy hitting scientists like J.P. Steffensen,(above) and  Mike Mann, Stefan Rahmstorf and Jason Box (below) that a persistent “cold […]
  • Climate’s “Pizza Gate”: Right and Left Wing “Resilience Truthers”
    Above – “we’ve heard about cloud seeding, Chemtrails, these are all things”. Well, actually only one of those is a thing, and probably not what crazy internet guy thinks. There’s a “horseshoe theory” of politics, which states that the continuum of politics is not a straight line, but bent more like a horseshoe, meaning the […]
  • Could Arctic Carbon Bomb be Larger than Thought?
    Above video outlines the problem. I spend a lot of time pushing back on catastrophist notions that a “methane bomb” is going to wipe out humanity in coming decades.  Simply hard to find scientists who agree with that. But we do have a problem, and it may be that the dimensions are poorly understood. New […]
  • Cost and Public Demand Driving New Solar South
    Utility Dive: The remarkable transition that utilities in the Southeast are undergoing is a powerful indicator of the profound changes happening in the nation’s power sector. The Southeast had 200 MW of solar capacity in 2012, but led by North Carolina’s Duke Energy utilities and Georgia Power, it had 6 GW at the end of […]
  • Simpler, Faster, Cheaper. New Solar Racking Leapfrogs Solar Tariffs
    More reasons why Trump/Putin/Republicans want to do away with renewable energy research. (see below) Technology and ingenuity can be tools of, or a weapons against, tyranny. Perfect example showing simple tech improvements can leverage dramatic cost reductions. Triple Pundit: Solar energy fans haven’t had much to cheer about during the Trump Administration, especially after the President’s […]

  • Fox News Military Advisor Quits: “I’m Ashamed”
    Sinking ship. Yadda yadda. Buzzfeed: A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. “Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous […]
  • Coal Field to Forest: “People Seem Happier”
    Today is International Happiness Day. This is not Rocket science. Guardian: Former miner Graham Knight puts his cup of tea down on the cafe table and looks out through the large glass windows.
