The planet’s rate of warming is 400,000 Hiroshima bombs per day

How can one convey the Earth’s staggering rate of heat build up from human-caused global warming — 250 trillion Watts (Joules per second)? The analogy to the energy released by the Hiroshima bomb has been used in recent years by a number of scientists, such as NOAA oceanographer John Lyman,…

The willful idiocy of alleged ‘global temperature decline’ is based on a mirage

As Prof Tim Palmer, at the University of Oxford put it: “The report is further reinforcement that…

Temperatures will rise by up to 8.6 degrees this century, UN panel says

A UN panel said Friday it was more certain than ever that humans were causing global warming and predicted temperatures would rise by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius (0.5-8.6 degrees Fahrenheit) this century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) also projected sea levels would rise by between 26 and…
