[QUOTE=Ron in Regina;2668811]Are you familiar with "Patrick Moore?" He was one of the founders of Green Peace. How about "Randall Carlson?" Both are interesting people and some of your statements are very close to what they also state? [/QUOTE



I could listen to Carlson for hours.

Don't waste your time trying to validate justyns' vain attempt to implicate gw as pollution. English contains adverbs and adjectives to ensure clarity of subject however trudough knows the pollution sound byte is far more pursuasive than a agw sound byte. Fact and or clarity have never been and never will be etched in the lib playbook.

what is the problem with taking some responsibility towards preventing / minimisation change?? Would you rather wait until it is too late. A life sustaining planet is rather unique and special......... so why not take care of it........People should be an asset to the planet not a destructive liability.

And we are , looking at the environmental improvements we have made in my lifetime it is amazing. Our vehicles are cleaner and much more efficient , most of us heat our homes with natural gas as opposed to wood and coal . We clean the soil prior to all building projects , we replant after harvesting our forests , we reclaim the land after mining . Yes I would say Canadians should be proud of our current environmental record .

Indigenous perspective must be heard on climate change , Regina conference told

Quote:

A conference in Regina about making the transition from a carbon-based economy to one with a greater reliance on renewable energy provided attendees with new perspectives, including an Indigenous one.
Justin Fisher, a member of Climate Justice Saskatoon, an urban environmental group which presented at the conference, said a just transition away from fossil fuels needs to include everyone, including Indigenous communities.

'I urge Canadians to look at what we have to offer, follow our lead.' - Michelle Brass, Indigenous Climate Action

Fisher said he's been conducting research for the last year, working with communities who rely heavily on natural resources to sustain themselves. He said a report summarizing Climate Justice Saskatoon's work would be published next month.
He said he learned a lot from Michelle Brass of Indigenous Climate Action.
"She emphasized that, as Indigenous communities, they're not going to wait for somebody to try and save them," Fisher said. "They're really trying to take on that work and have Indigenous-based solutions and really raise the profile of Indigenous knowledge and solutions to these problems."

Providing an Indigenous perspective

Brass was one of the presenters at the event held Saturday and Sunday at a school building in Regina.
Brass, who is also a former CBC Radio host, called for any discussions around climate change to include an Indigenous perspective because Indigenous people have experienced their own societal collapse, similar to what she foresees coming due to climate change.
"Look at our Indigenous communities, there's so much love, and there's so much laughter despite all of the pain and intergenerational trauma that we've been through," Brass said. "I urge Canadians to look at what we have to offer, follow our lead."
She said while Indigenous communities may not have all the solutions for Canadian society's problems, Indigenous people have solutions around how to transition away from fossil fuels and survive.

Building deep relationships

Brass said the relationships she built over two days of networking with other participants were "deep" and "amazing."
"People here are ready to move forward and take action, and not just talk," Brass said. "We're seeing the different ways we can collaborate and that capacity can be built faster than otherwise would happen."
She said groups were finding overlaps while figuring out how to help each other out in addressing climate change.
Brass said the transition away from fossil fuels will be a "sloppy, messy process," but it needs to be done.

Hard to take climate change seriously when scientists claim snakes and lizards are eating eggs in the far north shores

Arctic 'no safe harbour' for breeding birds

Quote:

Shore birds breed on the ground; their eggs and offspring are exposed, where they can fall prey to predators such as snakes, lizards and foxes.
The researchers looked at data collected over 70 years for more than 38,000 nests of 200 bird species, including 111 shore birds, in 149 locations on all continents.

Quote:

Dr Vojtěch Kubelka of the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, and co-researcher of the study said: "The Arctic, with recently elevated rates of nest predation, is no longer a safe harbour for breeding birds: on the contrary, the Arctic now represents an extensive ecological trap for migrating shorebirds from a nest predation perspective."
The research is published in the journal Science.

How much more is that than the nightly cooling effects. Will my hot-air balloon work better or not??

Volcanoes going off already and more pressure is going to be added???
The probe sent back any temp readings during it's 'twisting maneuver', Did it say what temp that program kicked in. How much did it weigh on earth and how much will it weight when it is close to the sun?



Perhaps if we let off 10 or so nuclear weapons in a specific that will re-balance things once those 10 really, really expensive nukes are build and let off in the south pole or Iran the bad weather will go away and a new and accurate forecast will be made. Might be expensive to repair the past mistakes but if we all donate as much as we can rather than as little as we can all will be good.

Climate contrarian uncovers scientific error, upends major ocean warming study

researchers with UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Princeton University recently walked back scientific findings published last month that showed oceans have been heating up dramatically faster than previously thought as a result of climate change.

In a paper published Oct. 31 in the journal Nature, researchers found that ocean temperatures had warmed 60 percent more than outlined by the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

However, the conclusion came under scrutiny after mathematician Nic Lewis, a critic of the scientific consensus around human-induced warming, posted a critique of the paper on the blog of Judith Curry, another well-known critic.

“The findings of the ... paper were peer reviewed and published in the world’s premier scientific journal and were given wide coverage in the English-speaking media,” Lewis wrote. “Despite this, a quick review of the first page of the paper was sufficient to raise doubts as to the accuracy of its results.”


Co-author Ralph Keeling, climate scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, took full blame and thanked Lewis for alerting him to the mistake.

“When we were confronted with his insight it became immediately clear there was an issue there,” he said. “We’re grateful to have it be pointed out quickly so that we could correct it quickly.”

Keeling said they have since redone the calculations, finding the ocean is still likely warmer than the estimate used by the IPCC. However, that increase in heat has a larger range of probability than initially thought — between 10 percent and 70 percent, as other studies have already found.

“Our error margins are too big now to really weigh in on the precise amount of warming that’s going on in the ocean,” Keeling said. “We really muffed the error margins.”

Oops, can we keep the $100M and we'll need $200M more to undo our mistake. Thanks in advance.

Go do the math in the NASA thread, it will give you a good idea what you are getting for your money. Spoiler: Not much.

Snow-vember! The earliest Houston snowfall ever just happened!

HOUSTON — An incredible sight danced over the city’s glistening skyscrapers of Houston this morning and likely caused many to rub their eyes and shake their heads. No, it wasn't your lying eyes but rather the earliest snowfall ever observed in the city of Houston and surrounding areas.

It's official, according to the National Weather Service, that Houston has recorded it's earliest snowfall ever observed -- and not just by a day or two but by 10 days! The previous earliest trace snow was November 23rd, 1979.

"Could" slash the size of America's economy by 10% in 81 years....

REGINA, SK: The Canadian Taxpayers Federation is calling on the federal government to back off on its threatened carbon tax in the wake of a new University of Regina study detailing the damage a carbon tax would inflict on the Saskatchewan economy while failing to help the environment.

“There are two problems with a carbon tax: it costs people money and it doesn’t help the environment,” said Todd MacKay, the CTF’s Prairie Director. “While Ottawa refuses to provide transparency on its carbon tax scheme, the University of Regina’s study shines a light on the economic damage a carbon tax would cause.”

Ottawa’s carbon tax will cost the Saskatchewan economy $1.8 billion every year, according to the University of Regina. That’s equivalent to a GDP loss of 2.4 per cent . A separate University of Calgary study shows the carbon tax will cost Saskatchewan households more than $1,000 annually.

“We have to look beyond the billion-dollar numbers to see the hurt a carbon tax will cause for Saskatchewanians,” said MacKay. “A carbon tax will make grocery bills bigger for families and jobs harder to get for workers.”

The University of Regina also examined the environmental impact of Ottawa’s carbon tax scheme and found it would trim Saskatchewan emissions by a mere 1.25 per cent.

Canada produces 1.6 per cent of global emissions and Saskatchewan produces a tenth of those emissions,” said MacKay. "That means Ottawa’s carbon tax would cost Saskatchewan’s economy $1.8 billion a year without making any real change in Canadian or global emissions.”

The University of Regina’s evidence of a carbon tax’s economic harm balanced against its failure to significantly reduce emissions provides key arguments as the Saskatchewan government goes to the Court of Queen’s Bench to block Ottawa’s scheme. The CTF is seeking intervener status to raise arguments on behalf of taxpayers.

“Going to court will force Ottawa to stop hiding its carbon tax numbers and put its cards on the table,” said MacKay. “The University of Regina’s research strengthens Saskatchewan’s hand as it makes its case to stop Ottawa’s carbon tax.”

But you'll get $200 in free money a year.

The equivalent to a GDP loss of 2.4 per cent may trim Saskatchewan emissions by 1.25%? What happens with a progressively increasing Carbon Tax to reduce emissions by 50%?

Lowering Saskatchewan emissions by 1.25% = 2.4% loss in GDP
Lowering Saskatchewan emissions by 50% = 96% loss in GDP? (50% / 1.24% = 40 x 2.4% = 96%?)

Saskatchewan will freeze and starve, & Trudeau with retire with a PM's Pension in a few years & live off his Trust Fund in the Caribbean. Sounds like a good deal. All we have to do is agree to buy his magic beans carbon tax, or be forced to buy his magic beans carbon tax . It's good to have choices....
