2:39 PM | Steve McIntyre Misrepresents Climate Research History
Who is Steve McIntyre? From DeSmogBlog.com: Stephen McIntyre has been a long-time mining industry executive, mostly working on the “stock market side” of mining exploration deals. He published a blog called Climate Audit where he attempts to analyse in sometimes long and extensive detail the work of climate change scientists where he documents “statistical mistakes”…

1:51 PM | Hey-Hey! Ho-Ho! Climate Change Has Got to Go!
By Susan Cosier The largest climate protest in history took place yesterday, with 400,000 folks filling four miles of New York City streets (around 600,000 people took part worldwide). Participants in the People’s Climate March, who included notables like U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Bill McKibben, Jane Goodall, Kevin Bacon (note: all marchers are now within one degree of him), and this guy. They marched, waved banners, chanted, and twerked, […]

12:21 AM | Climate Science Ice Bucket Challenge The Complete Collection
I am going to try to keep all the climate science ice bucket challenges here as they occur. At present there are quite a few individuals who have not yet answered the challenge. I’m sure they will. Some of them, in the Northern Hemisphere, may be waiting for it to get colder so the act…

11:15 PM | Humans have caused more than 100% of climate change over last 50 years
Sounds funny, doesn’t it? Let me rephrase. Humans have caused so much climate change that some of the climate change changed some of the climate back. Still sounds kinda funny. OK, try again: Humans have caused a whole bunch of global warming. Nature has caused a small amount of global cooling, which has offset a…

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, Steven Koonin, former Department of Energy Undersecretary and BP scientist makes the case that global warming is caused by humans, important, that we must do something about it, and that further research on key topics is necessary to help guide policy. He states, The crucial scientific question for…

6:18 PM | Global Warming Negatively Impacts Wild Monkey Diets
Yes, yes, we hear it all the time: More CO2 is good because plants love CO2 That is a rather dumb thing to say for a number of reasons; nature is not simple. You don’t change one variable and expect other variables to respond as though we were turning a garden hose up or down.…

9:26 PM | To Score Quick, Cheap Points, Label Someone as Anti-Science
When I was interviewing Robert Kennedy Jr. for my recent Washington Post magazine profile, there was one charge leveled against him that he deeply resented. “I am not anti-science,” he insisted on numerous occasions, and my suggestion a year ago that he was anti-science perturbed him more than anything. After all, Kennedy, like many greens, embraces […]The post To Score Quick, Cheap Points, Label Someone as Anti-Science appeared first on Collide-a-Scape.

8:58 PM | Crashing Into Ice: The Impact of Climate Change, On My Head
Ruby, Françoise, and I are barefoot and wearing t-shirts as we conduct sea bird surveys from the prow of the M/V Cape Race. Between shifts we close our eyes, the sun warms our faces and it feels downright tropical. Opening our eyes again, we are reminded of where we are. Looming in the distance are massive, glassy ice bergs, which we will soon be swimming by.

6:04 PM | Stunning Satellite View of California’s Massive King Fire. With Climate Change, We Should Expect More Such Views
California’s King Fire continues to blaze out of control in heavy timber and steep terrain in Eldorado National Forest north of the community of Pollock Pines. The fire ignited Saturday and spread with breathtaking speed through a landscape desiccated by hot temperatures and California’s profound and record-breaking drought. So far, the King Fire has scorched […]The post Stunning Satellite View of California’s Massive King Fire. With Climate Change, We Should Expect […]

4:47 PM | Why This Climate Scientist Is Taking to the Streets
In my early years I didn’t talk about the politics of global warming much. I didn’t bring it up with friends or family, let alone engage in any public way. It seemed to me unseemly for a scientist to be vocal on a political issue related, even indirectly, to his own research. Wouldn’t that be an indication of bias, of a lack of scientific impartiality? But I have changed my mind.

4:26 PM | With Summer’s Unequalled Warmth, 2014 is Likely to Finish as the Warmest Year on Record for the Home Planet
August and the summer of 2014 have both gone down in the books as the warmest such periods since modern record keeping began in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced. And with a warmth-bringing El Niño probably emerging, the odds are very good that the rest of the year will be warmer […]The post With Summer’s Unequalled Warmth, 2014 is Likely to Finish as the Warmest Year on Record for the Home Planet appeared first on ImaGeo.

2:51 PM | Bloomberg's Climate Challenge
By Andrew Revkin Michael R. Bloomberg has been one of the most vocal leaders, at any level of government, when it comes to sounding the alarm about what climate change is doing, and will continue to do, to our planet—including exposing the deep vulnerability that human communities face from climate extremes and coastal flooding. As the mayor of New York City during Hurricane Sandy, Bloomberg was tasked with handling not just one but two disasters of […]

1:50 PM | Louisiana’s Boot Is Shrinking in Size
By Susan Cosier When learning the states as I child, I always remembered Louisiana as the “boot-shaped” one. But as you can see in the illustration on the right, the sole of that boot is wearing thin as the Gulf coastline disappears, thanks to oil and gas drilling, canal channeling, and sea-level rise (see "Losing Lousiana"). Between 1932 and 2000 the state lost nearly 1,900 square miles of land, and an area the size of a football field […]
