Interesting AGW Tidbits

Remember when potential influence of cosmic rays on cloud formation and climate was pilloried, when researchers pursuing this interesting angle of physics were essentially ”laughed out of the room”, their theories completely rejected by the mainstream. I do. I blogged about it. (a couple times at least). Thanks to perseverance in the face of criticism, some physicists continue […]

What Will the Winter Bring?

I can’t believe it has been almost a month since I posted a blog entry. Seeing as no one complained, maybe it isn’t a good use of my time. But I enjoy sharing the latest weather and science news, so here goes… The latest Farmer’s Almanac Winter prediction is out. A lot of people are talking […]

Ask a Climate Change Scientist A Question!

        Do you have a burning question that you want to ask an expert regarding how the Earth’s climate is changing?  Do you want to know how greenhouse gases play into this, where climate change is occurring most rapidly, or will the sea levels really keep rising?  Do you want to know […]

Rising Seas

Once again we come across some anthropogenic global warming (AGW) analysis, theory, and opinion using words like “irreversible”, “locked in” and “inevitable”. This theme has resurfaced in regards to rising sea levels. I came across an article a while back which stated that the sea level will rise ”many meters”. Then there was an article on Climate Central […]

Peak Oil – A Busted Theory?

One of the issues I have followed over the last few years, almost a decade really, is the Peak Oil scenario. I became interested in the issue as it relates to energy and pollution. I even interviewed professor Hirsch. There was also the interesting contrast between anthropogenic global warming (AGW) scenarios which projected increasing fossil fuel […]

More Deciphering Results

With the large volume of scientific studies being published every day, it can be hard to understand or decipher it all. Many times it seems like a new research result will contradict an older study, but the seeming contradiction might boil down to the use, or mis-use of stastics. Plus, the headline can sometimes warp perceptions and […]

Some interesting things happening in Northcentral Wisconsin lately. We had the latest ever date in our snowmelt contest this year. In case you did not hear, the snow finally melted on June 30th. It did not quite make it to July, but it was still a new record. Then one week later we ended up […]

An Under-Reported Story

One of the most under-reported environmental stories of the last couple of years is the decrease in carbon emissions in the U.S. It is surprising (to some). It has defied almost every prediction, whether one is talking about anthropogenic global warming (AGW) or Peak Oil. The decline in carbon emissions has been so amazing that […]

Feeding the World

I while back, I heralded Norman Borlaug in the blog for finding a solution to feeding the world’s growing population. Some might argue that creating a new strain of wheat with a higher yield was not good for overall health, but it was a solution that help to keep hundreds of millions of people from […]
