So more CO2 Propaganda, issued just before the SA Durban Climate Change COP17 Meeting
"Combustible," an amusing online video for the Global Climate Change Initiative, shows a loudmouth big-biz type on a city street yacking into his cell about how global warming's a load of bunk, even as he bursts into flame and disintegrates into a smoldering pile of ash. Ah well, these days if you want to smoke, you've got to step outside. The message: "Climate change doesn't need you to believe in it." The spot was created pro-bono by New York agency Realm.
American Tradition Institute seeks to restore science, accountability, and liberty to the environmental policy debate. Dr. David Schnare, director, explains in this video the purpose of the institute's Environmental Law Center and how it will help accomplish ATI's mission.
Richard Muller of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project discusses his recent Wall Street Journal article in that has caused a stir in the debate about climate change. Muller stands by the article but says the Journal gave the piece a misleading headline. Muller goes on to say that in his opinion, the earth is definitely warming but says skeptics bring up good points and criticizes Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." He also says some scientists are to blame for the confusion among the public on what the truth really is. Interviewed by Rob Nikolewski of Capitol Report New Mexico, 10/31/11.
An eloquent experiment by geologist Tom Segalstad, dramatic proof of the rapid absorption of CO2 by water. The calcium carbonate touch is inspired! AS CO2 Experiment Video
This video shows that a candle floating on water, burning in the air inside a glass, converts the oxygen in the air to CO2. The water rises in the glass because the CO2, which replaced the oxygen, is quickly dissolved in the water. The water contains calcium ions Ca++, because we initially dissolved calcium hydroxide Ca(OH)2 in the water. The CO2 produced during oxygen burning reacts with the calcium ions to produce solid calcium carbonate CaCO3, which is easily visible as a whitening of the water when we switch on a flashlight. This little kitchen experiment demonstrates the inorganic carbon cycle in nature. The oceans take out our anthropogenic CO2 gas by quickly dissolving it as bicarbonate HCO3-, which in turn forms solid calcium carbonate either organically in calcareous organisms or precipitates inorganically.
Weather Action Climate Fools Day Video taken at the House of Commons on Wednesday 26th of October 2011
Many apologies for the poor sound quality, we had one cameraman, but no soundman. This YouTube is still worth it's weight in gold for climate information. Well done to all those who came, pity the AGW media and Government reps (apart from our very own Sammy Wilson) did not take time out. It may have helped them to understand how the tax payers money is being thrown down the drain. GR
A much stronger round for Rick Perry, but Mitt Romney soaks up the punches and comes out on top, winning this debate 2-1
Republican Presidential Candidates Debate in Las Vegas. Mitt Romney and Rick Perry on healthcare and immigration. "The idea that you stand here before us and talk about that you're strong on immigration is, on its face, the height of hypocrisy," Perry said to boos and applause from the audience.
Thousands of anti-capitalist protesters returned to New York's Times Square on Saturday, buoyed by a global day of demonstrations in support of their month-long campaign against corporate greed.
In Chicago, more than 2,000 people marched from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to Grant Park before setting up tents. Police said they arrested more than 200 protesters who refused to leave this morning.
The Occupy Wall Street movement has been gathering steam over the past month, culminating with the global day of action yesterday.
Inspired by the grass-roots movement and Spain's "Indignants", protests started in Asia and Europe and rippled around to the US and Canada. The protests worldwide were mostly peaceful apart from Rome, where the demonstration sparked riots.
