Not so permanent 400

What is in a number? There are many numbers that are marked as milestones, like every decade of your life (birthdays). Silver, gold, and diamond anniversaries are marked at 25, 50, and 75 years of marriage. The turning of the seasons and each year on the calendar are often noted as special events. I though a […]

Get with the program!

I bought an electric lawnmower. I wasn’t planning on it, but I have tried to use new and used gas mowers (4 push mowers and 2 riding lawnmowers) over the last couple of years and every single one of them has broken down! I had to give up on gas mowers. Now that I have […]

Nothing New Here

Add George Monibot’s name to a list that includes Bjorn Lomborg, Patrick Moore, and many others. What do they all have in common? They have all delved into the science of “green” activism and found it severely lacking. Patrick Moore was a co-founder of Greenpeace, but left when he felt the organization was no longer […]

Getting better or worse?

Another year and more anthropogenic global warming (AGW) fears. This article recounts many of the climate-change-driven-records of 2015. I was more interested to see that an arctic mission to hype AGW got stuck in the ice. Great irony…and it is not the first time an expedition set out to qualitatively prove how much ice the […]

Story Dump

Time for some “summer cleaning”, if there is such an analogue to “spring-cleaning”. Today is the first day of meteorological summer, and it is time to clear out all of the interesting weather, technology, and science articles I have been saving for a while. There is not enough time dedicate an entire blog post to […]

More Global Warming Lawsuits

I have covered the practice of suing over “global warming” in the past, somewhat humorously at times, here, here, and here. Finally there is one lawsuit “victory” that makes sense. It isn’t going to help with anthropogenic global warming (AGW), but at least it made legal sense. Read about it here. Four teenagers sued the […]

United States of Clean Energy

It is time to update a theme I have been blogging about for a few years now. Carbon dioxide emissions continue to go down in the U.S. What? You didn’t hear this good news trumpeted by national media outlets! Of course not…because of political reasons. Climate science is less a “science” nowadays and more of […]

Warmest March on record globally

    The warm climate beat marches on across the globe.  Here are some highlights from a recent NOAA report. March 2016 was the 11th straight month that a monthly global temperature record was broken according to NASA, NOAA, JMA, UAH, and RSS.  Global land-ocean temperature was 1.22 degrees C above the 20th century average. Global […]

Faster Than You Can Imagine

I often generically mention “technological progress” as a reason why any climate model forecasts more than a couple of decades out are probably more fantasy than reality. Why am I so confident in this expectation? My eyes are open. I use my brain a little as well. It doesn’t take much thought or sight to acknowledge […]
