Ancient humans farmed the Amazon too

They were just way better at it than we are Tinde van Andel A modern harvest of the peach palm. When we think of the Amazon rainforest, we tend to think of one of two things; either a pristine tropical paradise bursting with biodiversity, or a threatened area that’s being devoured for agricultural purposes. The truth,… [Read more →]

NOAA’s satellites are on the chopping block. Here’s why we need them.

Our eyes in the sky are facing budget cuts On Friday, The Washington Post reportedly obtained a memo from within the Trump administration about proposed funding for National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The memo outlined steep cuts to several divisions, including the elimination of the $73 million Sea Grant research program, cuts to climate research… [Read more →]

US House Science Committee claims scientists faked climate change data- here’s what you should know

Even if NOAA fabricated data, the evidence still supports climate change Donald LeRoi, NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center Climate scientists have worked hard for decades to prove climate change. Why is the US House Committee on Science, Space and Technology working so hard not to believe them? On Sunday February 5th, the U.S. House of Representatives… [Read more →]

Speed of Arctic changes defies scientists

The Arctic climate is changing so quickly that science can barely keep track of what is happening and predict the global consequences, the UN says.

In an unusually stark warning a leading international scientific body says the Arctic climate is changing so fast that researchers are struggling to keep up. The changes happening there, it says, are affecting the weather worldwide.

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) says: Dramatic and unprecedented warming in the Arctic is driving sea level rise, affecting weather patterns around the world and may trigger even more changes in the climate system.

The rate of change is challenging the current scientific capacity to monitor and predict what is becoming a journey into uncharted territory. 

The WMO is the United Nations’ main agency responsible for weather, climate and water.    

Its president, David Grimes, said: The Arctic is a principal, global driver of the climate system and is undergoing an unprecedented rate of change with consequences far beyond its boundaries.

The changes in the Arctic are serving as a global indicator – like a canary in the coal mine – and are happening at a much faster rate than we would have expected. [Read more →]

Climate warnings masked by propaganda

Paul Brown


Leading scientists say most people remain unaware of the truth that climate change is a stark reality now and will continue to get worse without drastic action.

A rise in world temperatures of 1.5°C degrees can no longer be avoided, according to the world’s leading climate scientists, who say that the majority of people have yet to wake up to the stark realities and dangers of climate change.

In a devastating summary of the crisis the world faces, the seven scientists say that propaganda by the fossil fuel lobby and failure of politicians to take action in the last 10 years means changes in lifestyles and radical action is needed if catastrophe is to be avoided.

Sir Robert Watson, former chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), says: “Climate change is happening now and much faster than anticipated.”

A doubling or tripling of existing efforts is necessary, he says, to avoid exceeding the 2°C degree danger threshold on global temperature rise agreed by the world’s government at last year’s Paris climate conference.

In a paper titled The Truth About Climate Change, the scientists depart from the normal cautious assessment that has characterised IPCC reports. [Read more →]

Fmr. CIA Dir. Jim Woolsey warns of existential EMP threat

Washington, D.C.: On July 29, 2013 President Bill Clinton’s former Director of Central Intelligence, R. James Woolsey, led a panel discussion on the growing — and perhaps imminent — threat of a natural or nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to the U.S. electric grid and other critical infrastructures that sustain modern civilization and the lives of millions of Americans. The event was sponsored by the newly established EMP Coalition, of which Mr. Woolsey is the Honorary Co-Chair along with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
