Global warming is America’s lowest priority, recent poll shows

Global warming ranks dead last in a list of national priorities, according to a recent poll conducted by the Pew Research Center for the Public & the Press. The Americans polled rank the economy, unemployment, and terrorism as (respectively) the top three priorities that need to be addressed. The number of Americans who say that strengthening the economy should be a top priority has risen from ... Full story

Glaciers a Mixed Bag

Glaciers around the world thinned by an average of 29 inches in 2007, which indicates to Swiss scientists that they are melting twice as fast as they were in the 1980s and 1990s. But, wait. A few paragraphs down, it’s explained that Alpine glaciers retreated while coastal glaciers in Norway actually gained thickness in 2007. Also, the rate of glacial decline was ... Full story

Despite Alleged Warming, Antarctic Sea Ice Grew 30%

Christopher Booker provides his take on the so-called Antarctic warming that hit the news last week. It seems the Antarctic “warming” is confined to a very small portion of the continent, while the rest of Antarctica has been getting colder over the last 30 years, according to satellite data. For years, the continent that covers the south pole has been a thorn ... Full story

Response to Antarctica Confirmed to be Melting

Reader Tony, author of The Kyoto Files, sent me an email late last week with his response to the Antarctic melting story that hit the news last week. From his email: I chased up the actual release and it says basically what I lay out in my post on the subject over at our home site, that results on readings have been compiled and then ...

Antarctica Getting Warmer, But No One Knows Why

A report published in the journal Nature concludes that Antarctica has been warming over the last 50 years after studying combined land and satellite readings. The problem is that no one really knows how much is from man-made sources and how much is natural with no anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions emitted from the continent. Drew Shindell from NASA’s GISS in New York is ... Full story

Sea Ice Back to 1979 Levels

Amid record cold temperatures and snow that just seems to be falling everywhere and anywhere, sea ice ends 2008 where it began: in 1979. 1979 was the first year of satellite sea ice observations. The best part of the article (link below) is that scientists predicted a complete melt of the north pole in 2008 because they felt thin ice would melt ... Full story

Models Wrong Again: Arctic Melt 20 Years Ahead of Schedule

I keep waiting for the day when science really does have all the answers. Today, however, it seems models rule the scientific community and theories become accepted “fact” overnight. These same models predicted a rapid acceleration in melting Arctic ice - 20 years from now. Instead, researcher Mark Serreze says that melting is happening today, 20 years ahead of schedule. Some ...

More Arctic Ice Predictions

Ready for a little revisionist history? Scientists now think that the Arctic could be ice-free in the summers as early as 2013, decades earlier than previously thought. The best part about having a blog is that you can go back in time to see what was really said and make the appropriate comparisons. You can read about the ice-free Arctic predictions ... Full story

Sea Level Has Been Dropping Since 2005

I guess we can scratch cataclysmic flooding from the seas off our global warming doom list. Just some background for some of you folks: In September, Science Magazine debunked Gore’s claims of sea-level rise. Bangladesh is not sinking under the sea. And Greenland’s not melting into the ocean afterall. Full story

Arctic May Have Had Less Ice 6000-7000 Years Ago

L. Graham Smith provides some useful analysis and commentary from an article originally published over at Anthony Watt's blog on research that indicates the Arctic may have had less ice several thousand years ago.  The findings, if true, would strike another blow to the big bear that is global warming.  And while researchers blame what happened there on climate factors that differ from what's happening ...
