  1. Scientists say we need to cut our emissions by 80% by 2050 just to keep climate change within two degrees centigrade of current world temperatures. Can Ethical Men and Women tackle global warming on their own? Newsnight's Ethical Man Justin Rowlatt has just completed a 6,500 mile trip across the United States in search of solutions to the biggest problem on earth. He discovered that each American is responsible for 20 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, more than twice that of the average European. But the country is also the most innovative and powerful nation on earth whose president say
  2. Human caused CO2 emissions are causing dangerous global warming. Yay or nay?
  3. The fight against global warming starts with you! Did you know that the average PC wastes nearly half the energy it consumes? That wasted electricity contributes to global warming and higher electric bills. By turning on the power management features you already have on your PC or laptop and choosing energy-efficient computers, you'll be kinder to both the environment and your wallet - to the tune of $20 per year. Together, we can reduce the impact of computers on the environment by 54 million tons of CO2 per year - that's the equivalent of taking 11 million cars off the road! Full story
  4. Jackal Verilax was fumbling around in the bookshelves of his house. 'Parchment, parchment, need parch- aha!' His fingertip came across an old book that some virtuous missionary was handing out in abundance at some point. Removing it, he scanned the cover: "The Eight Virtues - An Insight". 'Pfft,' he said, 'Not gonna be reading this any time soon.' Turning to the back, he ripped a few of the blank pages out and tossed it to the corner of his room, settling down at his desk with the blank pages. He pulled out a red feather from his tricorne hat, and dipped it in the ink well, scribbling ac
  5. One of the world's greatest living physicists is Freeman Dyson. If you remember the great Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Relics," you will remember that the Enterprise encountered a Dyson Sphere, which was named after Freeman Dyson, who first theorized about them. It turns out that Freeman Dyson is a global warming skeptic: Benny Peiser: In a Winter Commencement Address at the University of Michigan two years ago you called yourself a heretic on global warming, the most notorious dogma of modern science. You have described global warming anxiety as grossly exaggerated and have ope
  6. Do your part in global warming and add more ice to your vodxa :tongue3:!! edit: meant warming not warning in thread title, lol. I saw this sign in chicago over the weekend, just made me chuckle when I saw this.
  7. A very entertaining video. :grin: :shocked: :laugh: I'll amend that to say that they call bullsh*t on Global Warming hysteria.
  8. Not really. Right now the climate Nazis are just firing them from their jobs: Global warming debate spurs Ore. title tiff 06:51 AM PST on Wednesday, February 7, 2007 By VINCE PATTON, KGW Staff In the face of evidence agreed upon by hundreds of climate scientists, George Taylor holds firm. He does not believe human activities are the main cause of global climate change. Taylor also holds a unique title: State Climatologist. Hundreds of scientists last Friday issued the strongest warning yet on global warming saying humans are "very likely" the cause. “Most of the climate changes
  9. Prompt action can slow global warming and reduce some of its impact On Friday, February 2, 2007, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—the leading international group of climate scientists—published a 20-page summary [pdf] of a much longer scientific report, which confirms global warming is now “unequivocal” and states with more than 90 percent certainty that human activity “very likely” has been the primary cause of rising temperatures worldwide since 1950. The report summary also says that global warming is likely to continue for centuries, and that it is alr

  13. A "climatologist" for The Weather Channel has drawn the line in the sand. American weather forecasters do battle over mankind's role in global warming By David Usborne in New York Published: 19 January 2007 A leading climatologist on the Weather Channel in the United States has caused a squall in the industry by arguing that any weather forecaster who dares publicly to question the notion that global warming is a manmade phenomenon should be stripped of their professional certification. The call was made by Heidi Cullen, host of a weekly global warming programme on the cable network cal
  14. WASHINGTON, Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Lord Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, has sent an open letter to Senators Rockefeller (D-WV) and Snowe (R-Maine) in response to their recent open letter telling the CEO of ExxonMobil to cease funding climate-skeptic scientists. (http://ff.org/centers/csspp/pdf/20061212_monckton.pdf). Lord Monckton, former policy adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, writes: "You defy every tenet of democracy when you invite ExxonMobil to deny itself the right to provide information to 'senior elected and appointed government officials' who disagree with your opinion
  15. power companies are finally starting to except reality. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15871433/
  16. Perhaps. And this set of paragraphs is particularly worrying: Next, the UN abolished the medieval warm period (the global warming at the end of the First Millennium AD). In 1995, David Deming, a geoscientist at the University of Oklahoma, had written an article reconstructing 150 years of North American temperatures from borehole data. He later wrote: "With the publication of the article in Science, I gained significant credibility in the community of scientists working on climate change. They thought I was one of them, someone who would pervert science in the service of social and politic

  18. If the opinion was paid for by an energy company like Exxon, it doesn't count, is what Britain's Royal Society appears to believe. Mr. Galileo? Would you please shut up, already? We are scientists, and we know the truth. Don't make us sic the Inquisition on your ass..... :grin:
  19. From LiveScience.com Global Warming Fuels U.S. Forest Fires By Sara Goudarzi LiveScience Staff Writer posted: 06 July 2006 12:14 pm ET A recent increase in wildfire activity has been correlated with rising seasonal temperatures and the earlier arrival of spring, a new study concludes. Looking at a database of 1,166 forest wildfires from 1970 to 2003 in the western United States, researchers compared the number and potency of wildfires to spring and summer temperatures and the timing of snowmelts. Wildfire season and potency increased "suddenly and dramatically" in the late 1980's, th
  20. Global warming: Crisis for Earth? By Richard Black Environment correspondent, BBC News website James Lovelock: The Revenge of Gaia is "a wake-up call" The BBC is to gather expert evidence this week on whether human-induced climate change is a crisis for planet Earth, as James Lovelock believes. The originator of the Gaia concept wrote in his recent book "...the fever of global heating is real and deadly". He says nuclear power is the only short-term way to provide enough energy without causing more climatic harm. The BBC has commissioned a panel of scientists to review Pr
  21. 1) Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Do your part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Buying products with minimal packaging (including the economy size when that makes sense for you) will help to reduce waste. And whenever you can, recycle: paper, plastic, newspaper, and aluminum cans. If there isn’t a recycling program at your work, school, or in your community, ask about starting one. 2) Insulate Your Home Add extra insulation to your walls and attic, and install weather stripping or caulk around doors and windows. This step alone can reduce your home heating costs
  22. By Richard Black Environment Correspondent, BBC News website Higher temperatures will probably cause trees to release more carbon Global temperatures will rise further in the future than previous studies have indicated, according to new research from two scientific teams. They both used historical records to calculate the likely amplification of warming as higher temperatures induce release of CO2 from ecosystems. They both conclude that current estimates of warming are too low, by anything up to 75%. Their conclusion is backed up by a new report from the Australian government
  23. Warming set to 'devastate' coral By Paul Rincon BBC News science reporter Isolated reefs may be particularly susceptible to climate change Rising ocean temperatures look set to cause lasting devastation to coral reef systems, a study suggests. An international team of researchers looked at reefs in the Seychelles, where an ocean warming event in 1998 killed much of the live coral. The group found the oceanic reef had experienced fish extinctions, algal growth, and only limited recovery. Details have been published in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academ
