The Current State of Al Gore Global Warming Alarmism

Image
America’s affliction with climate alarmism is shaped by two facts:
First, the main instigators have crossed the Rubicon and have no choice but to fight. How has this happened? Nature was one cause: the short-term natural warming in 1978-1998 was mistaken for anthropogenic warming through the confirmation bias. Natural cooling from 1999 onward has canceled the expected anthropogenic warming (which is small, beneficial, and caused by a variety of factors -- not just carbon dioxide release).
But other causes were entirely manmade.  In hindsight, it is clear that for almost two decades (approximately 1988 -- 2004) multiple groups of climate “scientists” have been fabricating results in parallel, unaware that others were doing the same. Mann with his hockey stick got the most fame, but he was just one among many. Computer models, descriptions of the carbon cycle, and even instrumental temperature records were forged to exaggerate climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide, to hide past climate va…

Freezing winds hampering rescue of 68 people from icebreaker ship stuck in Antarctica?

Freezing winds are continuing to hamper the rescue of 68 people from an Australian icebreaker ship stranded in Antarctica.

Aurora Australis was on a supply mission to Mawson Station when it broke its mooring and ran aground in Horseshoe Harbour on Wednesday.

The Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) said 80 mph blizzards are whipping the area, and they are waiting for better weather before rescuing its expeditioners and crew.

"They will remain on the ship until conditions ease and it's safe to move them over to Mawson Station," said AAD director Nick Gales.

"We're thinking that conditions are going to ease overnight."

He said there is a breach in the hull, but it poses no risk to the stability of the…
