The temperature in the world’s coldest village reached near-record lows, so much so that their digital thermometer broke as a result. Oymyakon is a village in the Russian region of Yakutia. It’s named after the Oymyakon River, which literally translates to mean: “unfrozen patch of water; place where fish spend the winter.”
This ocean floor deformation also means we have miscalculated just how much ocean levels are rising and the problem could be far worse than previously believed. Over the past 20 years, ocean basins have sunk an average of 0.004 inches per year. In a study published online in Geophysical Research Levels
Guest essay by Eric Worrall Does record breaking winter cold cast doubt on climate predictions of milder winters? Could ANY weather or climate shift cast doubt on the dominance of that wicked little trace molecule? Apparently not, according to leading climate explainers. It's cold outside, but that doesn't mean climate change isn't real Sammy Roth,…
Two Harvard University researchers said in a study published on Wednesday they had collected data proving that Exxon Mobil Corp made "explicit factual misrepresentations" in newspaper ads it purchased to convey its views on the oil industry and climate science.
CNN’s Sally Kohn is known for saying wonky and demonstrably false things on air and in her Twitter feed, whether it’s promoting the “hands up, don’t shoot” meme, comparing Christians to ISIS, or saying she wanted her young daughter to “copy the Caitlyn Jenner model of femininity.”
Over the past three decades, the environmental movement has increasingly
hitched its wagon to exactly one star as the overwhelming focus of the
cause, namely "climate change." Sure, issues of bona fide pollution like
smog and untreated sewage are still out there a little, but they are
largely under control and don't really stir the emotions much any more. If
you want fundraising in the billions rather than the thousands, you need a
good end-of-days, sin-and-redemption scare. Human-caused global warming is
Even as this scare has advanced, a few lonely voices have warned that the
radical environmentalists were taking the movement out onto a precarious
limb. Isn't there a problem that there's no real evidence of impending
climate disaster? But to no avail. Government funding to promote the
warming scare has been lavish, and in the age of Obama has exploded.
Backers of the alarm have controlled all of the relevant government
bureaucracies, almost all of t
It has been 117 months since a major hurricane, defined as a Category 3 or above, has made landfall in the continental United States, according to 2015 data from the Hurricane Research Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Before Walker went on a fundraising cruise on Lake Winnipesaukee, Americans United For Change (AUFC)—a liberal organization—announced it would be organizing a counter-protest to Walker’s cruise. A couple things made this different than any normal protest, however. First off, the people “protesting” Walker on global warming—who they called “climate change voters”—would be dressed as moose. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, they’d be on a “floating iceberg” behind Walker.
Democrats may be flustered after a week of being accused of engineering an anti-science “witch hunt,” but they aren’t backing down from their investigations into the financial backing of climate-change researchers who challenge the movement’s doomsday scenarios.
From Yahoo Finance: People who own all-electric cars where coal generates the power may think they are helping the environment. But a new study finds their vehicles actually make the air dirtier, worsening global warming. ...
The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years, and 2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record. The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.
NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, who routinely hypes forecasts declaring climate change an imminent threat to humanity, made a rather stunning admission on Thursday night's broadcast while touting the 2014 predictions from the National Hurricane Center: "Overall, they're predicting eight to thirteen so-called named storms....One

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is more certain than ever that global warming is changing Americans' daily lives and will worsen — conclusions that scientists will detail in a massive federal report to be released Tuesday.
Once people thought global warming was more in the future and more of an issue in other parts of the world, but the National Climate Assessment will emphasize how the United States is already paying the multibillion-dollar price for man-made climate change, said study co-author Donald Wuebbles, a climate scientist at the University of Illinois.
"We're already seeing extreme weather and it's happening now," Wuebbles said Monday. "We're seeing more heat waves, particularly in the West and in the South."
This final report is a rewritten and shortened version of a draft that was released in January 2013, with more scientific references, reviews by experts and the public, and a thorough review by the National Academy of Sciences, said Wuebbles and report lead
