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?

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 […]

Lots of Rain

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 […]

Energy Efficiency in the USA

There was quite a stir in media, climate, and environmentalist circles recently when carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere as measured atop the mountain at Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii reached 400 parts per billion. It is the highest concentration of carbon dioxide measured at that location since measurements began back in 1958. The rising levels […]

The News Is Not All Bad

An interesting projection of arctic vegetation changes was published recently. As you can imagine, if the arctic continues to warm, more trees will grow. The study expects up to 50% more trees in arctic regions by 2050. This would most likely lead to significant changes for the arctic climate and other areas of the world. […]

Climate News Galore

Some interesting anthropogenic global warming (AGW) news has made some headlines recently. A lot has to do with pinning the blame (or not) on human activities. In recent years, the media, “climate activists”, and researchers have been much better at couching research and statements in more scientific terms – using probabilities to describe forecasts, weather events, and […]

The Efficacy of Climate Meetings

I almost pulled my hair out the other day. I know, there isn’t much left to pull out, but what little is left was close to removal. In a world full of many things you could pull-your-hair-out over, what could possibly trip my emotional trigger? A National Climate Summit of course. It is not that […]
