Dr. Patrick Moore & Dr. Caleb Rossiter Rebut Wash Post: Oops! Climate Change Actually NOT the Cause of Coastal Flooding

By Patrick Moore and Caleb Stewart Rossiter Consumers of the climate religion media – which comprises pretty much every outlet from CNN leftward – should be forgiven for believing that a climate crisis requires that we ban the cheap, reliable energy that powers 80 percent of the world economy. After all, those outlets only run

Scientists shed light on essential carbon-fixing machinery in bacteria

By Kelsey Simpkins Scientists have been studying cyanobacteria and its many potential applications for decades, from cutting CO2 emissions to creating a substitute for oil-based plastics, but there wasn’t a deep understanding of the full life cycle and metabolism of specialized compartments within these common bacteria – until now. New CU Boulder research published today

New Paper: Body condition of Barents Sea polar bears increased since 2004 despite sea ice loss

A recent paper that attempted to correlate pollution levels and body condition in Barents Sea polar bears reports it found body condition of female bears had increased between 2004 and 2017 despite a pronounced decline in summer and winter sea ice extent. “Unexpectedly, body condition of female polar bears from the Barents Sea has increased

Climate goalpost migration: if you can’t prove more hurricanes, say it’s making them relocate

By Anthony Watts From NOAA HEADQUARTERS (via EurekaAlert) and the “Climate Refugees” department comes this inane claim that can easily be explained by natural ocean current pattern changes such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation and the Atlantic Meridontal Oscillation, but instead get the universal boogeyman of “climate change” applied as the driver. Takeaway: “the global

Validation of spring wheat responses to elevated CO2, irrigation, and nitrogen fertilization in the Community Land Model 4.5

By Yaqiong Lu and Bruce A. Kimball Abstract The Community Land Model (CLM) started to incorporate crop growth models since version 4.0 in 2012. Since then the crop model in CLM has been evolved remarkably, but some of the key crop growth responses to environmental conditions (such as the elevated CO2) have not been well

Global Mean Temperature Flattens the Past

By Renee Hannon Introduction There have been recent discussions about ‘flattening the curve’ and some curves are easier to flatten than others. The Pages 2K Consortium calculates global mean temperature in a manner that flattens the long-term trend and makes present day temperatures appear warmer relative to past temperatures. Across the globe, temperature reconstructions show

Naked Mole Rats Just Got Weirder – When They Don’t Get Enough CO2, They Have Seizures

By David Nield We already know what a tough and hardy little creature the naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber) is, but it turns out these critters do have a weakness after all – they rely on high levels of carbon dioxide in their immediate environment, otherwise they have seizures. While previous studies have already identified the animal’s ability to
