This is my continuing blog on global warming. If you are new visitor, please look at last couple of blog entrys also on global warming!!!!







"There are so many arguments proving & disputing global warming that people can't seem to agree completly on it. But for all the preperations that we make for hurricanes & other disasters, what do we have to lose if we prepare for global warming as if the worst might come true?
The answer is pure common sense. We should try to eliminate the variables that cause global warming instead of just arguing about it. It's like a hurricane- if we prepare for the worst, it can only save lives & money. If it does not come, no one will have been hurt & we may even have a healthier Earth."


Book I recommend reading:


Videos I recommend:
"Who killed the electric car?"
HBO'S "To hot Not to handle"
"Inconvienent Truth"

If government would get out of the way(instead of having big oil and big cars lobby money buying off the EPA) We'd all have electric cars by now. If the socialist left hadn't taken over the environmentalist movement, alot more people would take it seriously. I am an environmentalist, but Mr Gore and his pals care about the environment as the people posting here care about OPEC.
Individuals i.e. small businesses need the freedom to push the envelope the way a few guys in their garages pushed the Personal Computer envelope 20 yrs ago.
The dept of energy doesn't produce 1 watt of energy not even a watch battery's worth. The Dept of education is watching dropout rates double every year, meanwhile so many so-called enviromentalists think Govt regs and taxes will help. Raise your hand if you want your local DMV cleaning up the environment!....
Now that a moment of silence and lack of hand raising has occurred, I want to wish everybody on both sides of such arguements a merry christmas!

With the economy on a downcline and christmas spending not up to par, an early new year prediction.
Since Thanksgiving here in Wisconsin gas has been around $2.80 a gallon, whick is hard to believe because the barrel is around $90.
Pryor gas was around $3.19 per gallon when a barrel was at $90.
Im assuming it is similar throughout the states, correct me if Im wrong.
Question: Do you believe the Government controls or has a say in the price of oil?
I believe so, and call me crazy but here is my belief.
Obviously the Oil industry isnt the only entity throwing billions into our Government.
My thought is that the price of gas was lowered, so people would spend more money on the biggest holiday sales of the year, then after the holidays I believe we will see the big hike in oil prices again.
Its sad but seems our current elected officials, Democrat or Republican have sold us out and the only interest is to take more and more of our money.
Everytime we give money to the war it seems it will always be connected to billions of dollars of ear marks. How long can our dollar survive with this irresponsible spending of our money.
The new year brings higher taxes all over the board, higher food and fuel costs and more irresponsible spending. When are we going to say enough is enough? I cant wait for the Global Warming tax, which will be another entity of corruption,lol
Thanks for the venting session,lol
Later friends and have a happy New Year.......

WOW!!!
What a novel concept...

Individual entities making the decision to voluntarily install equipment that produces renewable energy...

Hate to say it, but the shrub has been saying this for his 6 years in office now.

Once business realize how much money they can cut from their expenses by having renewable energy sources, that's when the revolution begins. Word is starting to get out. There will be a turn-around.

Hey Fish!!

Sorry I haven't been around lately, but it's been busy busy busy.

That's some awesome news about the CA-40!!

I think that I'll have to go find some of this stuff.
330 miles is amazing...

I'm telling ya, you'll be getting 350 by the time it fully runs through your engine.

Not to mention the benefit of reducing your emissions.

Hope to see you soon bro!

Hey Fish, whats up?
hows it going? Ive been working 7 days a week, espically with this dam snow.
Havent had the time to chat, but its good to see you are still here.
Still debating on global warming,lol
Well, I see theyre still argueing to whos right.
Theres good points on both sides, why cant we just meet in the middle?
In the years to come, Global Warming will not be an important issue as it is now.
I suppose you want to know why I say that, well I tell you.
That fuel we are useing that is suppose to be cleaner and less harsh on the environment, you know that Ethanol.
Well besides the food crisis that we will encounter if we continue to use our food source for fuel, we have another huge problem.
It takes 3 to 5 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of Ethanol. Isnt water a huge problem in some states right now?
Not affected by man? We are contaminating the ground with chemicals to the point where we need more chemicals to help the growth.
We are beginning to drain our lakes for dam fuel. Is this not hurting this planets natural resources by what man is doing?
Its kind of hard to argue this when we are already seeing its affects. Food prices are sky rocketing and we are already experienceing shortages.
Besides dry climates throughout the states, we are also experiencing water shortages.
We havent felt the effects yet my friends, but we will soon, trust me on that.

U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007

Senate Report Debunks "Consensus"

Complete U.S. Senate Report Now Available: (LINK)
Complete Report w/out Intro: (LINK)

INTRODUCTION:

Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.


The new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s office of the GOP Ranking Member details the views of the scientists, the overwhelming majority of whom spoke out in 2007.



Even some in the establishment media now appear to be taking notice of the growing number of skeptical scientists. In October, the Washington Post Staff Writer Juliet Eilperin conceded the obvious, writing that climate skeptics "appear to be expanding rather than shrinking." Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as the year man-made global warming fears “bite the dust.” (LINK) In addition, many scientists who are also progressive environmentalists believe climate fear promotion has "co-opted" the green movement. (LINK)


This blockbuster Senate report lists the scientists by name, country of residence, and academic/institutional affiliation. It also features their own words, biographies, and weblinks to their peer reviewed studies and original source materials as gathered from public statements, various news outlets, and websites in 2007. This new “consensus busters” report is poised to redefine the debate.


Many of the scientists featured in this report consistently stated that numerous colleagues shared their views, but they will not speak out publicly for fear of retribution. Atmospheric scientist Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology and Physical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, author of almost 70 peer-reviewed studies, explains how many of his fellow scientists have been intimidated.



“Many of my colleagues with whom I spoke share these views and report on their inability to publish their skepticism in the scientific or public media,” Paldor wrote. [Note: See also July 2007 Senate report detailing how skeptical scientists have faced threats and intimidation - LINK ]



Scientists from Around the World Dissent



This new report details how teams of international scientists are dissenting from the UN IPCC’s view of climate science. In such nations as Germany, Brazil, the Netherlands, Russia, New Zealand and France, nations, scientists banded together in 2007 to oppose climate alarmism. In addition, over 100 prominent international scientists sent an open letter in December 2007 to the UN stating attempts to control climate were “futile.” (LINK)



Paleoclimatologist Dr. Tim Patterson, professor in the department of Earth Sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, recently converted from a believer in man-made climate change to a skeptic. Patterson noted that the notion of a “consensus” of scientists aligned with the UN IPCC or former Vice President Al Gore is false. “I was at the Geological Society of America meeting in Philadelphia in the fall and I would say that people with my opinion were probably in the majority.”


This new committee report, a first of its kind, comes after the UN IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri implied that there were only “about a dozen" skeptical scientists left in the world. (LINK) Former Vice President Gore has claimed that scientists skeptical of climate change are akin to “flat Earth society members” and similar in number to those who “believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona.” (LINK) & (LINK)


The distinguished scientists featured in this new report are experts in diverse fields, including: climatology; oceanography; geology; biology; glaciology; biogeography; meteorology; oceanography; economics; chemistry; mathematics; environmental sciences; engineering; physics and paleoclimatology. Some of those profiled have won Nobel Prizes for their outstanding contribution to their field of expertise and many shared a portion of the UN IPCC Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Gore.



Additionally, these scientists hail from prestigious institutions worldwide, including: Harvard University; NASA; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR); Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the UN IPCC; the Danish National Space Center; U.S. Department of Energy; Princeton University; the Environmental Protection Agency; University of Pennsylvania; Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the International Arctic Research Centre; the Pasteur Institute in Paris; the Belgian Weather Institute; Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute; the University of Helsinki; the National Academy of Sciences of the U.S., France, and Russia; the University of Pretoria; University of Notre Dame; Stockholm University; University of Melbourne; Columbia University; the World Federation of Scientists; and the University of London.


The voices of many of these hundreds of scientists serve as a direct challenge to the often media-hyped “consensus” that the debate is “settled.”



A May 2007 Senate report detailed scientists who had recently converted from believers in man-made global warming to skepticism. [See May 15, 2007 report: Climate Momentum Shifting: Prominent Scientists Reverse Belief in Man-made Global Warming - Now Skeptics: Growing Number of Scientists Convert to Skeptics After Reviewing New Research – (LINK) - In addtiion, an August 2007 report detailed how proponents of man-made global warming fears enjoy a monumental funding advantage over skeptical scientists. (LINK) ]


This report counters the claims made by the promoters of man-made global warming fears that the number of skeptical scientists is dwindling.

Tornado, all I will say is this about religion.
All of them are kinda correct & all of them kinda wrong too. I just feel that all of them are praying to the same God, just interpreted differently.
Thanx for the compliments & YES, awareness is the key. I could not agree more!

Fsh, if you intend for your blog to focus strictly on alternatives to burning fossil fuel now then maybe the following story isn't on topic. However it was interesting to find yet another beneficial and income producing use for CO2.

... what if you could make plastic a little greener by using carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide to make it instead of fossil fuels?

... Novomer will also look to strike deals with companies that are producing large amounts of carbon dioxide in their manufacturing processes, such as coal plants or cement manufacturing companies.

Just two words: Green plastics. Think about it. | GreenTech Pastures | ZDNet.com

Mmmmm Tornado, to set my record straight I never said I did not believe in God!

Sorry for my misunderstanding. You kind of inferred it so I made the mistake of assumming it.

I just dont believe in the great story book(bible lol)

I don't quite understand why you feel that way if you believe in God, unless you are of a different faith or religion. To each his own.

BTW... I know WHY the oil companies are doing so, I just cant understand how the people in this country let them get away with it all!!

Probably for the same reasons I quoted. I have noticed a major change in people attitudes over the years. When I was in my teens and twenties, which is more than 40 years ago, people were more interested in working together to solve problems and help each other out. Now everyone seems to only be interested in themselves and the h**l with everyone else. I see the same in the U.S. Government as well as our own state government. Not to be obnoxious, but the Bible warns us that a nation divided can not stand. That's why I am comming to some of the conclusions that I'm drawing. I agree with you that these problems can be solved and we have the technology. But I question whether we as a people have the resolve to do so any longer. That's what I mean when I say I'm not sure that we have enough time left. We have have to solve our human problems before we can solve our technical problems. Is it possible, I like to thinks so and I keep seeing light at the end of the tunnel so I keep hoping and doing what I can do. I think that your blog, so long as it is kept cival, is one of the best things you have done. It has gotten a lively debate going and gotten people who read it to start thinking about the problems. Like I've said in the past, one of the major things I see needing to be down is to educated the public in general about the issues. That's been happening over that last year in large part. But we still have the bureaucracies to deal with and they seem to hold the controlling cards. The only way to get them to listen is to educate the public and to get them to put pressure on the powers that be. That was demonstrated during the Nixon Administration. When the people unite, the government has to listen.

This needs to be posted again!

"Solar is the Solution"


COAL:
"The exhaust from burning coal contains more pollutants and global warming emissions per unit of energy produced than any other fossil fuel. In addition, the methods used to mine coal are destructive to the land and dangerous for the miners."

"Now consider that coal is enormously inefficient from a total energy perspective. It took billions of years of solar energy to form the coal we have today. And while coal is the most abundant fossil resource, the total amount of energy produced by burning all the coal on the planet would only be equivalent to the solar energy that strikes the Earth every six days."

NATURAL GAS:
"Natural gas is the second most abundant fossil fuel, but its total potential energy is equivalent to only about 1 1⁄2 days of sunshine striking the Earth."

NUCLEAR:
"When radioactive materials were sequestered and dispersed deep under the Earth?s surface, they presented very little threat to life. But we?ve made those materials far more dangerous by mining and concentrating them, and the byproducts left over after a nuclear reaction are even more dangerous than the original isotopes."

"Even if the problem of radioactive waste could be solved, the recoverable world reserve of fissionable uranium is equivalent to less than 1 1⁄2 days of the energy striking the Earth from the nuclear reaction of the sun."

OIL!!
"Demand for petroleum will soon exceed world production capacity and at that point the price of fuel will start to rise dramatically. We should be asking ourselves how we will cope with gas prices as they rise from $2.50 to $5 to $10 per gallon and keep rising"

"Now consider that the entire recoverable world oil reserve is equivalent to the solar energy that strikes the Earth in ONE DAY!!!!"

ELECTRIC VEHICLES:
"One of the main excuses the auto industry offers for the lack of electric vehicles is that ?the batteries are not developed yet.? But consider how quickly cell phone batteries developed, transforming mobile phones from heavy, bulky, short-lived nuisances to amazingly light, small and long-lasting necessities."

"Yes, I know solar panels are still too expensive for many of us. But 10 years ago, nobody gave hybrid cars a chance of succeeding. Today, the Toyota Prius is the hottest thing going. Plug-in hybrids and all-electric options should be available soon. If we all work together and demand that our government set a wise energy policy and use taxes to support the right renewable energy options, I predict we can put the brakes on climate change and enjoy clean, true-green energy."

Oh yea sure Dave, go out & live our pathetic little lives when the country I was raised in & so proud of goes to hell in a handbasket??
THAT is exactly what is wrong with this country right now!!!!
I will agree with you on the U.N. though. If you would have bothered to read back a little instead of just barging in & spewing venom lol, you would have seen my comments on it. Hey stuff just like the Tesla, the solar & that battery breakthrough can achieve exactly what the limits on greenhouse gases the U.N. is proposing & guess what?? OUR country makes all the money, strengthens us & starts changing our perception in the world today.

BTW... did you even read the article? It said that..
"Manufacturing the nanowire batteries would require "one or two different steps, but the process can certainly be scaled up," he added. "It's a well understood process."
Also I am pretty sure lithium-ion batterys are mass-produced?? lmao

Cruc as usual I am not following you??? So the guy is Chinese?? He is here in the States & he is working for an American University so I dont get what your saying? The article also says that FIVE of his students helped write the paper. Not real sure where the 50% comes from???

Incandescent light bulbs are doomed in the U.S. thanks to legislation signed by President Bush on Wednesday

What the????? I must be in the Twilight-Zone or something. lol

"The changeover in the United States will be more gradual, not mandated to begin until 2012 and phased out through 2014. However, don't be surprised if some manufacturers phase out earlier"

They also touch on the over-kill & hype over the mercury contained in them. They point out to put a cloth or something under it while changing them to catch all the "hazardous" mercury if they break lol

Some more info on the new battery technology!!

"It's not a small improvement," Cui said. "It's a revolutionary development."

"Given the mature infrastructure behind silicon, this new technology can be pushed to real life quickly," Cui said.

BTW... Let's give it up for the U.S.A. AGAIN!! This technology was developed at Stanford University!!!

NanoSolar factory on line & producing cells!!!

A word of caution here. lol This is NOT the Johannesburg solar film I have talked about here many times. A very BIG step has been taken here though. The real nice part about this is that it is produced here in the U.S.A.!!!!!!
Well I said it at the beginning of this year that 2007 was going to be a "green" year! lol
2008 is the year when everything starts coming into place. :)
