How to Use the Bible to Save the Planet 23.4.2014 Mother Jones
For a brief moment in Darren Aronofsky's hit religious epic film Noah, we see the great Flood from space. From that vantage point, it looks much like an atmospheric event of the sort that a NASA satellite might photograph, so we can all share it on Facebook. So what does biblical cataclysm look like from orbit? Beautifully, and yet terrifyingly, the entire Earth appears to be draped in a quilt of hurricanes, each cyclone nestled alongside the next. "There is a huge statement in the film, a strong message about the coming flood from global warming," Aronofsky told The New Yorker in an extensive profile . The film also contains a depiction of the Big Bang (something doubted by 51 percent of Americans , according to a recent survey), fins-to-limbs evolution , and the very clear implication that the biblical "days" of the creation were only metaphorical days, not literal, 24-hour ones. "Noah" and the Nexus of Faith and Environmentalism April 23, 2014, 3-4 p.m. EDT The Center for American Progress, 1333 H ...

Does El Niño Plus Global Warming Equal Global Temperature Records In 2014 And 2015? 23.4.2014 Think Progres

An El Niño appears increasingly likely according to NOAA and Australia's Bureau of Meteorology. If it starts soon, 2014 could well be the hottest year on record, but if it is a strong El Niño, as many currently expect, then 2015 would likely break all previous global records.

Letter: Stop encouraging science deniers, Tribune 23.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
I would respectfully like to ask the Tribune editors to stop publishing letters from climate change deniers such as the one you published April 22 from Ronald Jones of Sandy. Credible scientific evidence supporting global warming induced by human activity is so overwhelming that to deny it falls in the same category as claiming that the moon is made of cheese. Giving a voice to totally uninformed hysteria serves no interest. Kendra Houser Salt Lake City

Wall Street Wants to Lend You Money to Fight Climate Change 23.4.2014 Mother Jones
This story originally appeared in The Atlantic and is republished here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The latest series of reports from the United Nation Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned in stark terms the catastrophic consequences of the world's governments' decades-long foot-dragging on limiting greenhouse gas emissions. But what can you do? For one thing, fix up your damn house. That furnace, from the Reagan era, the inefficient water heater, the drafty windows? They're directly contributing to climate change. Homes consume 22 percent of the US's energy and, along with commercial buildings, account for 10 percent of the United States' greenhouse gas emissions. The chances of the US government enacting a carbon tax, emissions trading scheme or taking other sweeping action to tackle climate change may be next to nil. But thanks to an innovative new initiative from financial conglomerate Citi, the Pennsylvania state treasury and non-profits, homeowners across the country soon ...

Obama's Keystone pipeline trap 22.4.2014 LA Times: Commentary
The president's predicament is just the latest example of how climate change monomania has become a problem for environmentalists — and the country.

On Good Friday, President Obama made a bad call. The State Department announced that it would delay its decision on the Keystone XL pipeline until after the Nebraska Supreme Court rules in a case involving the route. The administration insists the decision to punt has nothing to do with politics. Pretty much everyone else thinks otherwise.

Letter: Climate change is still just a swindle 22.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
In your editorial (“The rising fires,” April 19) you assert “the likely culprit” in an alleged increase in wildfires is “climate change” (read “man-made global warming”). This is nothing more than another dose of unsupported, psuedo-scientific, alarmist, global-warming drivel shoveled up in support of the “climate change” fiction. Please explain how an ongoing increase in wildfires can be attributed to “climate change,” when, as the IPCC themselves acknowledge, there has been no warming now fo...

Midday open thread: Spying on Compton, Boy Scouts still bigoted, California still dry 22.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Three-million-year-old tundra found at bottom of Greenland ice sheet : The new discovery indicates that even during the warmest periods since the ice sheet formed, the center of Greenland remained stable; "it's likely that it did not fully melt at any time," Vermont's Bierman said. This allowed a tundra landscape to be locked away, unmodified, under ice through millions of years of global warming and cooling. Boy Scouts boot entire church that won't discriminate against gay Scoutmaster : The troop has stood by its openly gay Scoutmaster in the face of the national organization’s attempt to remove him for being an “avowed homosexual.” Last year, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) lifted its ban on openly gay youth—but reaffirmed its ban on openly LGBT adults serving as volunteers or professionals in the organization. Geoff McGrath, an openly gay 49-year-old Eagle Scout, started a Boy Scout troop a few months later, in the Rainier Beach section of Seattle, Washington. The chartering organization, an ...
