Drats. Global warming

The Aussie ski season has begun earlier this year.

There’s more snow over in the States, too.

Meanwhile, if anyone is still so worried about the harmless yet necessary trace gas that is our old friend, CO2, they’ve worked out a way to shove it into ice (and with an added bonus to boot).

They’ve done it in a laboratory: Scientists have injected carbon dioxide into the kind of methane ice that underlies vast tracts of permafrost in the Arctic and lurks beneath the deep seafloor throughout the world. In that experiment, the carbon dioxide exchanged with the methane molecules. While the CO2 was sequestered inside the ice, the scientists extracted an energy source that may exist in nature in greater volume than all other fossil fuels combined.

There’s lots there to read on about.

But back to us evil humans killing the planet, and it turns out the IPCC is wrong again and that species loss “is at least twice as slow as previously thought”. Well, at least the IPCC reckons they’re going to undergo some major reforms.

Speaking of dodgy models and predictions, good ol’ James Hansen at NASA has come out and stated that man-made global warming predictions have been exaggerated.

Na. You think so, James? 🙄

By the way, there’s a link at the end of that previous link which also notes the rate of sea level rise is decreasing, despite NASA wanting you to believe it has been increasing by cooking the books. It should also be noted 10% of sea level rise is due to land rising, also.

Meanwhile, a fair whack of this eco greenie claptrap is being scrapped in the UK and Canada.

Of particular note is that Canada link. Yes. They’ve scrapped their carbon tax.

Julia? Bob?

  1. Given the paucity of fossils found by man, I am just amazed that some are so arrogant as to express an opinion as fact on the extinction of species! Fossils do not give enough information to be able to determine if they were a Sumatran tiger or a bengal one, yet these idiots want us to think that what is occurring is unprecedented. When they do not even have a prececent to stand on!

    • Phil, all you need to know is that pick any thing or subject you want, and it’s much worse now than it was before and will be even worser* in the future.

      BTW, How you been?


      • Very Busy – one of our team went out on short term disability, so I have been doing double duty – that and a very bad Java Trojan on my Aunt’s computer that I have been trying to erradicate.

        Trying to catch up now, but just getting a few moments of peace to read up on things.

        • Only just started blogging “proper” myself again, mate. Wedding and honeymoon cut into the schedule a bit. 😉

          • YES! Forgot when that was (knew it was coming up). Congratulations on the wedding and honeymoon! I wish you the happiest of lives. And remember – the lady is number one now (your fans take a back seat).

            • True, true. And thanks.

              The great thing is LBB knows me very well, and supports everything I do… so long as those damn dishes she used to put dinner on get cleaned later…

              • I wish she’d let me use the subs instead of the headphones for Friday Night Party Music, though…

              • My wife and I have the same deal – she cooks and I clean (she will not allow me near the stove since that “first” meal I cooked when we were dating). 🙂

                • Au contraire, my dear fellow. Monsieur can cook quite a few decent dishes. I come up with different shit all the time, and basically know all the old favorites. Nothing is ever quite the same twice, though. Gotta cook with love.

                  • Your wife made out better than mine then. 😉

                    Although I can grill fairly well.

                    • Not being sexist, but women can’t BBQ, shouldn’t BBQ and must be banned from BBQ’s.
