Thick ice frustrates attempts to free sealers

Canadian Press

Coast guard officials are hoping within days to free 39 sealing vessels that remain trapped in stubborn ice of northeastern Newfoundland. Captain Brian Penney, a coast guard spokesman, says efforts are being frustrated by shifting winds and ice so thick that four icebreakers are having trouble dislodging the vessels. The heavy icebreaker Terry Fox has moved into the area off the Baie Verte peninsula, but is being hampered by the severe ice conditions.

Penney says these are the worst conditions he’s seen in the last 15 years and have caused one of the most intensive coast guard rescue operations. See full story here

Methane Matters

World Climate Report

If you examine the staggering 1.7 million websites that are identified searching for “Methane and Global Warming,” you will discover that methane may be the very gas to push us past the tipping point sometime in the near future. To add to the scare, you will discover that methane is far more powerful as a greenhouse gas than CO2 – the same mass of methane would warm the earth 23 times more than the same mass of CO2.

Here is the latest twist to the methane story – methane is not increasing in atmospheric concentration! We have highlighted this fact many times before at World Climate Report, and a new article in Environmental Science and Technology reveals that global methane concentration is not behaving the way the IPCC and the global warming advocates would have us believe.  See full story here

Carbon Cycle Modelling and the Residence Time of Natural and Anthropogenic CO2

by Tom Victor Segalstad

The evidence of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that the apparent contemporary atmospheric CO2 increase is anthropogenic, is discussed and rejected. It is shown why the ice core method and its results must be rejected; and that current air CO2 measurements are not validated and their results subjectively “edited”. 

See Tom’s paper here and powerpoint presentation here

The three evidences of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), that the apparent contemporary atmospheric CO2 increase is anthropogenic, is discussed and rejected. It is shown why the ice core method and its results must be rejected; and that current air CO2 measurements are not validated and their results subjectively “edited”. 

Further it is shown that carbon cycle modelling based on non-equilibrium models, remote from observed reality and chemical laws, made to fit non-representative data through the use of non-linear ocean evasion “buffer” correction factors constructed from a pre-conceived idea, constitute a circular argument and with no scientific validity.  See Tom’s paper here and powerpoint presentation here

Also you may check out Beck’s paper on CO2 in the Climate Library here Beck on CO2. Beck has shown that using chemical methods CO2 has been higher than at current levels in the 1800s and 1940s.

Bill Gray Updates Hurricane Forecast and Challenges Global Warming’s Role, AP Show Bias in Coverage

Bill Gray issued his April Hurricane 2007 Season Update at the Hurricane Conference this week.  He and his partner Philip Klotzbach are calling for 17 named storm, 9 hurricanes and 5 major hurricanes with an enhanced chance of US landfall along both the Gulf and East coasts. He then presented evidence that the mulitdecadal oscillation in the Atlantic and not global warming was behind the continued increased activity, an opinion shared by most all of the real hurricane experts and forecasters. In this excellent blogpost on Powerlineblog, they show how the AP showed its typical biased coverage of Bill’s talk.  Powerlineblog on the AP Media Bias
