Video, Sep. 27, 2013: IPCC Lead Oceanographer Dishes on Ocean Acidification IPCC scientist Monika Rhein explains the state of the science on ocean acidification that will dissolve reefs. What is the history of oceanic pH? As stated by Monica Ryan in 2013, a physical oceanographer, a lead oceanographer of the IPCC whose main field of …
Mount Tambora erupted in 2015. The cloud of ash and sulfur dioxide caused the Year Without Summer in 1816, a year so cold that crops failed around the world, causing massive famine. Horses were slaughtered as there was no food for them, let alone the people.
Human productivity, essential to our overall wellbeing and prosperity, is natural. The carbon cycle is natural. Mankind is as natural as bluebonnets and dewberries. CO2 is not a pollutant but an essential mineral in the production of trees to build our homes and businesses and to grow the food we consume.
Having an understanding of the ITCZ, the ‘Chemical Equator’, is essential to understanding weather phenomena, air pollution, and dispelling pseudo-scientific myths promoted by activists on both sides of the arguments around anthropogenic influences on the earth’s atmosphere.
How can you be prepared for climate change? Dress warmly in the winter and use sunscreen in the summer.
Looking ahead to the rising sea level (actual and apparent), we can also look to present scientific knowledge and history. Rest assured the coastal cities of Miami, Norfolk, and my hometown of Palacios, Texas will adapt quite nicely.
In fact, Thwaites Glacier is melting but not due to global warming. Western Antarctica is heated by magma upwelling from the earth below. If or when the glacier melts completely, there would be a substantial rise in mean sea level (MSL). And, yes, a short distance from the seacoasts of America there would be flooding of beachfront and waterfront properties that are less than six feet above MSL, about two blocks inland.
Fact: Antarctic Ice Is Melting Sea level rise is a problem that is garnishing increasing attention among both scientists and the media. And as climate change continues to warm the earth, the current rate of 1.4 inches per decade is projected to increase, with NOAA predicting another foot of sea-level rise along US coastlines by …
On his first day as president, Joe Biden cancelled the Keystone pipeline, ostensibly to curb the use of fossil fuels, a figurative bone he tossed to his radical leftist environmentalists. But, only four months into his presidency, Biden waived sanctions against the company overseeing the construction of Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany, despite bipartisan …
Environmental activism, climate-change activism, has become a belief system, a religion. The genesis of the environmental movement was science-based and sought to protect threatened species and the vital qualities of air and water. The religion of environmentalism focuses on the harmful effects of mankind, mankind as the enemy of the earth.
