Global Warming, global roundup.

Hi Brit,

Not surprisingly, Global Warming is rearing its ugly head in today’s news.

First, and also not surprisingly, we find that Al Gore lied in his alarmist “documentary” by indicating that hurricanes are wore lately because of, you guessed it, Global Warming.  However, in this article, Expert disputes storms’ link to global warming, we find just what the title says:

Chris Landsea, science and operations director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami, said the notion that global warming is causing an increase in hurricanes gained widespread attention after the stormy seasons of 2004 and 2005.

But that perception is wrong and the statistics don’t bear it out, Landsea told about 200 students and professors in the auditorium at USC’s geography building.

It seems that even the IPCC bought into the Gore propaganda, as on page 5 of the IPCC WGI Fourth Assessment Report, they also blame Global Warming for an increase in intensity of tropical cyclones. 

Moving on we have, State distances itself from climatologist.  Here we find an expert “climate scientist,” who is experiencing political pressure because he does not hold with the consensus opinion on Climate Change.  The article mentions that this has also happened in other States than Delaware.  So much for “science.”

Which leaves us with the Business of Global Warming, China, India Smile as West Overpays for Climate: Andy Mukherjee.  You really should read this one as it’s choked full of information.  However, this bit bares repeating:

Sydney-based Easy Being Green says it will mitigate your cat’s flatulent contribution to global warming for A$8 ($6). The same company could also make your granny “carbon-neutral” at A$10 a year, according to a report in the Australian newspaper last weekend.

Then there’s Carbon Planet Pty, another company cited in the article. If you are hopping on a short-haul flight between Sydney and Canberra, and feeling bad about the damage you are doing to the ecosystem, you can buy credits worth A$23, for which the Adelaide-based company will guarantee to keep 1 ton of carbon dioxide out of the air for 100 years.

Well, I must go now as I have some scheming, ah, thinking to do.

    Yes, yes, the usual CO2 deniers’ line – we found someone who doesn’t agree with global warming, so it can’t be true…

    Anyway, it’s a pity that, in trying to educate us, you show your own lack of education. I rarely take advice from someone who does not know the difference between ‘bares’ and ‘bears’, as in ‘However, this bit bares repeating:’.

    All you have done is ‘bare’ your ignorance.

    Wow that car-fart story really has done the rounds of the blogs eh. I really must remember to phone up EBG and thank them for attracting so much +ve attention to Carbon Planet. As to the rest of your post I think the comment above really said all I wanted to say. The physics behind ‘warming seas = more chance of nastier storms’ is pretty much high-school stuff.

    Saying that the IPCC have ‘bought into Gore’s propaganda’ is simply astounding ignorance. The IPCC report was written by almost 1000 genuine, peer-reviewed climate scientists. It’s hardly surprising that the one or two people who disagree with them are regarded as the whackos is it. It’s like the old joke about the guy driving down the highway complaining that there are thousands of cars driving on the wrong side of the road.

    Cheers

    what does al gore have to do with gw anyway? he made a movie? is it gw that’s wrong or do you just dislike gore? i’ll go with the latter.

    however, that is an honest and mature line of reasoning on which to base your opinion of decades of scientific research. especially when you obviously know little about science.

    you’re that guy who commented on “reasic’s” blog about how as the temperature increases it “rains more”. lol good one. i guess you’ve never had summer where you live.

    but then again you’re a “conservative” and that implies you don’t know much about pretty much anything. just “go with the gut” dude.

    see you at the next “kegger”! “brit and grit”
