Here’s What Hope Looked Like In 2008. Are The Obama Voters Disappointed Today? Maybe A Few Sane Ones

Though this is a climate and energy blog, I’ve decided to meander off into pure politics this one time. It’s a slow day. In 2009 I asked a friend of mine, who I’ll call Norm, to predict where we would be under Obama’s leadership by 2012. Norm is a flaming liberal and ultra-Obama fan. Needless to say […]

German Professor Says We Are “Treading On Thin Ice” With Our Interpretation Of Warming

Online German daily Die Welt here published a surprisingly anti-alarmist article written by Prof Wolfgang Behringer, a science historian at the University of Saarbrücken. His conclusion: climate change and ice cap melting (and freezing) are nothing new and that man ought to be grateful it’s warmer, and not be hysterical about it. Indeed this is the […]
