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

  • Carbon Monitoring Restored in Congress, for Now
    Readers will know that the Trump administration was determined to cancel an important NASA program which monitors global carbon fluxes. Looks like another example of good science being tougher to kill than climate deniers (and Vladimir Putin) would like. Earther: Update 5/18: In a surprising turnaround, the House Appropriations Committee voted yesterday to reinstate the […]
  • Local Voices: Calling Out Big Fossil’s Anti-Wind Campaign
    Wind energy is coming to the midwest, and the heart of Michigan in a big and successful way. No surprise, a very well organized fossil fuel funded push-back is active across the state, and throughout the heartland. They’ve been operating mostly unopposed, spreading a lot of misinformation to hard hit rural americans (sound familiar?).  All […]
  • 50th Anniversary of First Climate Model. Spoiler, They Got it Right.
    Climate science is built on first order physics, and reliable observations of past climate – not models. The adage “Every model is wrong, but some models are useful” applies, but nevertheless, looking back at the earliest attempts at modeling the atmosphere with modern computers, we can now make a judgement on climate science’s accuracy. Above, […]
  • Music Break: Lake Street Dive – I Can Change
    Her name is Rachel Price.
  • Scientists Answer Wall Street’s Sea Level Nonsense
    So much stupidity on display at the Wall Street Journal, and in congress, on sea level rise. Fortunately, there is help. Climate Feedback: This commentary published by The Wall Street Journal, written by Fred Singer, claims that warming (and therefore greenhouse gas emissions) has no effect on global sea level rise. Although Singer concedes the […]
  • Wall Street Journal, Congress, Break Physics with New Theories of Sea Level Rise
    File this alongside “There is no gravity, the Earth sucks.” One more reason to support Dark Snow Project. Fred Singer in Wall Street Journal: Of all known and imagined consequences of climate change, many people fear sea-level rise most. But efforts to determine what causes seas to rise are marred by poor data and disagreements […]
  • In Lakes, Cat Tails and Algal Blooms could be a Toxic Methane Feedback
    We know that creating new lakes with dams is not a good idea climate wise, as emissions of methane are thought to be significant. Turns out that under current conditions, existing lakes can become significant sources as well – another example of not-so-positive positive feedback in the climate system. Inside Climate News: Blooms of harmful […]
  • Buses are Big Backup Batteries
    Electric buses a good idea for climate and electric grid. China ahead as is usual lately. Motherboard: We often think of electricity as a one-way transaction. Need to toast a bagel, wash the sheets, or charge your phone? Your fuse box sends you the juice you need. Electric vehicles, though, have the capacity to send […]
  • Music Break: Lake Street Dive – Good Kisser
    Not to be missed Bonus Track below. “Musta been somethin”
  • Tesla’s Giant Battery Saving Consumers Huge Dollars – Gas Turbines in Trouble
    General Electric, Siemens, and Mitsubishi, all scaling back production of gas turbines. This is one reason why. Future muddier for gas, bright for batteries. I’ve asked the question before: Will Gas break wind? or Will Wind Pass Gas? REnewEconomy- Australia: The Tesla big battery in South Australia has already taken a 55 per cent share […]
