Re: 2 deg - how the world failed on climate chan

I'd be happy to ditch the wind PTC and other energy subsidies in exchange for a no-subsidy level playing field along-side a moderate carbon tax.

This is another example of you not giving up anything of value for something of [more]

Re: 2 deg - how the world failed on climate chan

Conservationists have been trying to meet the right wing halfway forever on this issuee. Cap and trade was a conservative idea that we embraced. A carbon tax is a conservative idea.

Re: 2 deg - how the world failed on climate chan

The problem is not an unwillingness to compromise by conservationists.

I actually think this is the problem, you are unwilling to give up anything significant to get climate change legislation that you want. In your example you [more]

Re: 2 deg - how the world failed on climate chan

Getting all the hippies and environmentalists to say "I LOVE NATURAL GAS AND NUCLEAR!!" will not change much ... fracking will continue its explosive growth cause it's cheap and nuclear will continue to fizzle because it can't compete on [more]

I would like to ask all of the "skeptics" on this board to read and comment on this piece. The author's perspective is so different, it opens up the prospect of an entirely different kind of conversation. I would particularly like to [more]

Re: Geoengineering off Canada

NR and Haida are declaring it a win with a record 2013 salmon harvest. Seems like we need another experiment though.

Re: CA Drought

Part of the problem for the farmers is apparently they switched from cotton to almonds, which use more water and also take a considerable amount of time to develop.

Doing their parts

This story of 50 year olds moving in with their parents in CA, shows the kind of action we need to significantly reduce emissions. I'm also betting they don't fly to Vietnam for scuba lessons, which further limits their emissions.

Re: The Stern Report remembered

Global warming could cut the world's annual economic output by as much as 20%, an influential report by Sir Nicholas Stern is expected to say. While that is a worst case scenario, the report claims that at the very best the cost of tackling global [more]

Re: Maine: adapted to 2°C

They seem to have adapted to this 2°C increase….

Yes, but think of all they have endured due to this:

Multiple wars, hurricanes, floods, drought, heat waves, cold snaps, maple syrup shortages, the list goes on and on

Re: They're always wrong but still get airtime

When it is assumed that the CO2 content of the atmosphere is doubled and statistical thermal equilibrium is achieved, the more realistic of the modeling efforts predict a global surface warming of between 2°C and 3.5°C, with greater [more]

Re: Climate Articles

It's no crystal ball, but it's useful information.

Re: Warmist thinking

So we've probably reached the limits of what science communication can achieve. At this point only nature herself can close the consensus gap — or the fear gap.
