Climate change is set to unleash a series of decades-long "megadroughts". Experts warn the droughts could be more severe than the prolonged water shortage currently afflicting California... continue »

If Americans adopted the dietary guidelines suggested by their own Department of Agriculture, greenhouse gas emissions would go up by 12 percent, a controversial research report claims... continue »

Scientists are turning their attention to the phenomenon of ocean acidification – and its potential impact on the hard clams, oysters and other shellfish that make the Long Island Sound their home... continue »

Greenland is losing about 375 cu km of ice each year. Added to the discharges coming from Antarctica, Earth's two big ice sheets are now dumping roughly 500 cu km of ice in the oceans annually... continue »

As seems to always be the case, the climate fear propaganda news media have completely mislead the public once again by alleging claims of 4 meter high sea level rise in the future... continue »

While predictions of millions of climate refugees have been rather wide of the mark, it is wrong to state there are no climate refugees. In fact there has been one climate refugee. And, he just lost his appeal... continue »

With 31% ice coverage on May 9, 2014, Lake Superior now has more ice than after the epic cold winter of 1978-79. This had everyone in a tizzy over the coming Ice Age... continue »

The clear, near zero, lack of interest in "Years of Living Dangerously" should be a clear signal to the Obama administration regarding their global warming agenda – nobody is buying it... continue »

There is no way to know whether the global warming is primarily due to human activities, because there is no fingerprint of human-caused versus naturally-caused climate change... continue »

The new climate change report is an alarmist document designed to scare people and build political support for unpopular policies such as carbon taxes, cap-and-trade and EPA regulatory mandates... continue »

For the first time in over a decade, the Arctic sea ice anomaly in the summer is forecast to be near or above normal for a time. This signals something completely different... continue »

While using movie stars to bludgeon us with the idea that all bad things must be due to CO2 climate change, "Years of Living Dangerously" committed huge sins of omission... continue »

Rising CO2 levels due to human activity are nothing to worry about. The real problem is the media generated idea that we are going to die because carbon dioxide levels are rising... continue »

What if the planet is actually cooling? Devoted warmists might welcome the idea, perhaps seeing in the falling mercury hope for a better, safer planet. If so, they would be even more deluded than usual... continue »

The media recently have given a lot of play to the claim that Asian pollution is intensifying Pacific storms. This is another example of unhealthy and counterproductive hype in the media... continue »

The IPCC and OECD reports are telling us clear as a bell that we cannot ruin the climate with carbon dioxide unless we get a lot more numerous and richer... continue »

No longer able to channel the zeitgeist in the way it once could, the IPCC has a similar feel to an ageing rock band. Its fifth assessment report is a product of politics, not science... continue »

The next natural climate change is likely to see the ice returning. Everyone except penguins and polar bears should welcome the warmth – cold is the killer... continue »

Autumn's return has been marked, as usual, by froth-flecked assertions that we have just survived yet another of Gaia's warnings that humanity must abandon its planet-destroying ways... continue »

Even while it exaggerates the amount of warming, the IPCC is becoming more cautious about its effects. It will shortly publish a report on the likely impact of climate change... continue »

An AAAS' report, counterfactually titled "What We Know", is more an account of what the scientific community thought it knew about a decade ago than an up-to-date telling of current understanding... continue »

The circumpolar vortex has put this season into the record-books. The United States has just gone through its coldest interequinoctial winter in a century. Global warming? What global warming... continue »

March came in like a lion, bringing winds, snow and cold blast to the northeastern US. It looks like the lion isn't leaving, but climate alarmists can't blame the "polar vortex" this time... continue »

Mother Jones magazine has put a crazy theory on display: climate change is messing up the search for the missing Malaysian airlines flight MH370... continue »

The 50,000-strong American body of physicists, the American Physical Society, seems to be turning significantly sceptical on climate alarmism... continue »

Asian smogs are caused by unburnt fuel and particulates spewing from old engines in millions of cars. But none of this real pollution is caused by invisible, life supporting, non-toxic carbon dioxide... continue »

NOAA's map of February temperatures across the United States got New England all wrong. It wasn't "near normal" at all, as the people of the region can well attest... continue »

The media spin is in full wash mode over a recent paper studying a small section of Greenland. Some are conflating regional warming with global warming, because meverything is about global warming... continue »

The discussion about the causes of England's recent flooding and whether we can – or should – do anything about it is rather more worrying than TV's dumbed-down 'news values'... continue »

How much weather is being caused by climate change? Maybe 1 part in 1,000. Weather is related to energy imbalances, and mankind's role in changing those rates of energy flow is miniscule... continue »

There's quite a hullabaloo in the UK as the Met Office tries to link recent flooding in Bridgwater, Somerset with global warming, with Lord Lawson even calling Met Office Julia Slingo's claims "absurd"... continue »

While administration officials are insisting publicly that there is no firm proof that the planet is warming, they are quietly exploring potential ways to turn down the heat... continue »

Man-made global warming, or as it likes to be referred to these days as 'climate change', had a grand plan in its heyday. It's perhaps the greatest speculative bubble since Holland's 'Tulip Mania'... continue »

No doubt we will hear how the current heat waves in Australia are "unprecedented" and evidence of dangerous man-made global warming. They are neither "global" nor "unprecedented"... continue »

More than 300 groups are rejecting calls from top scientists to embrace nuclear power to fight climate change since renewables cannot be deployed fast enough... continue »

The United States wasted 7.45 billion dollars over the past three years to "help developing countries cope with climate change". It is an outrage and Congress needs to stop the spending... continue »

Global warming is small and nothing to be alarmed about, says a climate scientist. Richard Lindzen sees his discipline as deeply compromised by wholly unwarranted alarmism... continue »

What has caused a terrifying wave of amphibian die-offs from the 1980s onwards? Global warming? No. Ecology, like so many scientific fields, has sold its soul to the global warming religion... continue »
