The Pacific island group called Tuvalu is often cited by global warming advocates as being most at risk from rising sea levels caused by global warming. However, scientists are now admitting that the island is NOT sinking after all but is, in fact, growing BIGGER.
Islands of Tuvalu
A study by the University of Auckland examined changes in the geography of the island group between 1971-2014 and found that about 3/4 of the islands grew during that period by 2.9% even though sea levels rose twice the global average in the area. In fact, sea levels in the region have been rising for the past 50+ years and instead of erosion the island group has been expanding according to the study.
Population on the islands is around 11,000 and nearby Kiribati has a population of about 107,000. In a paper for the World Bank last year researchers admonished New Zealand and Australia to open their borders to fleeing refugees and warned that the condition of the islands was catastrophic and dire! Turns out that is NOT true at all. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Climate change is now being politicized and used for promoting open borders. Continue Reading
The CDC has put something interesting out lately pertaining to heat related deaths. According to their data about 600 Americans die every year due to heat related causes. In contrast, double that amount of Americans die due to COLD related causes. The CDC estimates are noted below.
Here’s something else. The planets temp has risen 1 degree in the last 100 years and life expectancy has doubled in the last 100 years. So is heating bad? Likely not. And one other little item……..cold seems to love diseases while heat tend to kill them. So the colder it is, the more disease is likely, while the warmer it is, the less likely disease outbreak is.
Make of the CDC statistics what you will but one thing I see for sure is that cold is much more dangerous to human life than warmth. And what would happen to much of human life should Earth suddenly plunge into a new ice age? I think we can safely say that there would be a lot of death due to disease outbreak, exposure, and famine. Continue Reading
A new study is out from the UCLA Institute of the Environment & Sustainability concerning environmental impacts of food consumption and defecation by dogs and cats! That’s right…you read that right….we’re talking that cute little puppy and/or furry kitten you have in your lap right now!!
According to the study our little buddies produce 5.1 million tons of feces which is, ironically, the SAME amount that is produced by humans today in America. The study also found that 25-30% of the impact on the environment in terms of meat consumption in the US is produced by those furry little critters too. And their carbon footprint? The study determined it is about 64 million tons of carbon dioxide yearly! That’s about the same impact a year’s worth of driving 13.6 million cars has on the environment too btw. :O Continue Reading
The Jurassic Period was much hotter than today and it did not trigger runaway greenhouse effects. In fact, plant and animal life flourished like never before! And so did our ancient human ancestors or we would have gone extinct!!
Climate on planet Earth is NOT stagnant and never has been. Climate changes all of the time. To deny climate change is to deny a proven fact. But is that climate change happening today warming caused by man or cooling with the possibility of a returning ice age?
Thanks to JR Bentley for the below stories. Here are two very interesting stories regarding climate change. The first article proposes that the entire foundation of the man-made global warming theory is WRONG. If this theory is confirmed by further research then it proves that CO2 emissions are not the cause of climate change in our modern times. Continue Reading
H/T to JR Bentley for this story:
“As global temperatures have already been showing stagnation or cooling over the last nineteen years or more, the world should now fear the real and detrimental effects of cooling, rather than being hysterical about limited, beneficial or probably now non-existent further warming.”

Greenland Ice Sheet is Growing
Greenland is seeing near record ice growth despite claims by global warming advocates that the Greenland ice sheet is melting. In fact, almost the entire surface of Greenland is gaining ice! And here’s another fact. Greenland just broke the record for the COLDEST July day ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere at -33 Celsius! The Greenland ice is melting very slowly which is NORMAL but it has gained a near record amount of ice so far this year. As Tony Heller says, “Climate science is NOT science. It is a criminal venture intended to extort money from the public!” And indeed it is!! Be sure to check out the link below for some very interesting graphs and stats!
Skiing in the Sierras All Summer Long!!
According to meteorologists skiing in the Sierras past July 4th is extremely rare but that is exactly what is happening now! Ski resorts in the area are planning on staying open all summer long. Potentially, the ski resorts may stay open all through the fall and into the start of the winter ski season which would mean they were open year around this year! This past winter dumped piles (literally) of snow in the Sierras and it is melting slowly. The massive flooding in California that was feared is not happening and it is looking like come this winter we may well have snow piled atop snow from last winter. Amazing! Continue Reading
This past winter took a heavy toll on wildlife in the Western United States according to biologists and wildlife managers. The toll was especially heavy in California, Colorado, Utah, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming. This past winter, according to wildlife managers in western states, was one of the coldest and snowiest in decades.
Record snowfall made it difficult for wildlife to find food and periods of bitter cold temps made that even harder. Mule deer in several states and elk herds in Washington were hit hard by this past winter. Wyoming saw heavy losses of pronghorn antelope herds and California saw heavy losses of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep herds. Biologists and wildlife managers say the herds will eventually recover with reduced hunting so hunting permits are being limited for a time. The herds will recover IF normal conditions return next winter according to authorities. Continue Reading
