Letter: Stop running climate-denier letters 20.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Re: the Pat Bagley cartoon (“Global Warming is a hoax!” April 15) The Los Angeles Times late last year adopted a policy of refusing to publish letters from climate change deniers because as the letters editor wrote “Letters that have an untrue basis (for example, ones that say there’s no sign humans have caused climate change) do not get printed.” So kudos to the L.A. Times as it evidently embraces the Buddha’s thought that to deny the authority of empirical evidence disqualifies one as someon...

Spotlight on Green News & Views: Blue tortoise v. Bundy, solar summit, Keystone XL decision delayed 20.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Many of the dozens of environmentally related posts that appear at Daily Kos each week don't attract the attention they deserve. So, more than seven years ago, a new feature was launched to highlight those diaries. Initially called Eco-Diary Rescue, the name was changed to Green Diary Rescue after a couple of years. Now, after nearly 17,000 green diaries have been rescued, the name is changing again. From now on, because of the growing number of diaries being posted at the site, "Spotlight on Green News & Views" will appear twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Wednesday April 16 Spotlight can be found here . As has all along been true, inclusion of a diary in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it. Bundy vs the tortoise —by Blue Tortoise: "There is a bigger story behind the recent standoff between the BLM and rancher Clive Bundy. The confrontation is part of a long battle over Federal land management practices after the Mojave Desert Tortoise was ...

Bombshell Study Links Epic California Drought, ‘Frigid East’ To Manmade Climate Change 16.4.2014 Crooks Liars
It's not as if we didn't already assume this was happening, but scientists have been reluctant to draw a definitive line. But the right-wingers will quickly explain this is simply part of that liberal agenda-driven excuse for science : Natural variability alone cannot explain the extreme weather pattern that has driven both the record-setting California drought and the cooler weather seen in the Midwest and East this winter, a major new study finds. We’ve reported before that climate scientists had predicted a decade ago that warming-driven Arctic ice loss would lead to worsening drought in California. In particular, they predicted it would lead to a “blocking pattern” that would shift the jet stream (and the rain it could bring) away from the state — in this case a “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge” of high pressure. A new study in Geophysical Research Letters (subs. req’d) takes the warming link to the California drought to the next level of understanding. It concludes, “there is a traceable anthropogenic ...

Bombshell: Study Ties Epic California Drought, ‘Frigid East’ To Manmade Climate Change 16.4.2014 Think Progres

A major new study finds “there is a traceable anthropogenic warming footprint in the enormous intensity of the anomalous ridge during winter 2013-14, the associated drought and its intensity.” So as long as we fail to reverse carbon pollution trends, California droughts will keep getting worse.

The post Bombshell: Study Ties Epic California Drought, ‘Frigid East’ To Manmade Climate Change appeared first on ThinkProgress.

NY Times Pushes 'Climate Change' Activism on Front Page Two Days in a Row, Blames GOP 15.4.2014 NewsBusters
The New York Times has made a front-page push for higher taxes and stringent regulation in the name of "climate change" two days in a row (the Washington Post had the self-control to leave its own related stories off the front page). Notorious climate activist/journalist Justin Gillis's lead story in Monday's Times warned " Climate Efforts Falling Short, U.N. Panel Says ," but found good news: There's still time to tax, spend, and regulate the problem ...

Carbon destroys ocean life as well as our climate 15.4.2014 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Health News
Air pollution is rarely linked to water pollution, but the strong links will soon be obvious, just as the surface air movement is influenced by the ocean currents and the temperatures of both. While scientific models can tell us what is going to happen as the earth warms, climate change will also be influenced by small so far neglected fluctuations in chemistry such as these pH changes in our oceans, affecting billions of creatures, and of course, us.

If You Were Watching Game of Thrones Last Night, You Missed Neil Tyson's Solution to Global Warming 14.4.2014 Mother Jones
Last night's episode of Fox's Cosmos series didn't seem political or controversial, at least on the surface. Rather, it introduced us to the world on the molecular and atomic scale, at one point venturing inside of a dewdrop (packed with extremely cool tiny organisms like tardigrades ) and, later, inside of a plant cell. It was kind of reminiscent of what you learned in your ninth grade bio class—albeit much less sleep inducing. Yet fresh from ticking off creationists, this time around host Neil Tyson managed to work in the science of climate change. Plants, after all, are the reigning global masters of clean energy. They use 100 percent solar power: The chloroplast, the so-called "powerhouse" of a plant cell, is a "3 billion-year-old solar energy collector" and a "sub-microscopic solar battery," as Tyson put it. Basically, chloroplasts use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to store energy in sugars, and give off oxygen as a by-product. And without this fundamental green energy technology, life on this ...
