NASA's Climate Science Budget Continues To Bloat

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:56:46 -0600

NASA has always spent a percentage of its budget on Earth Sciences, but that percentage had increased under Jim Hansen's direction and he had friends in high places, like Al Gore. Under the Obama Administration Climate Science became a priority and focus. There was turmoil within the ranks at NASA with administrators, scientists, and even astronauts, as many noted that research data was being manipulated for the global warming agenda.

The Cultural Beliefs Behind The Establishment of Burial Sites: A Tool For Biodiversity Conservation

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 07:09:15 -0600

China has attempted for far too long to forgo environmental issues in order to continue its economic march forward. For three decades the Communist Chinese Government posted 10% year over year gains, recently that number has come down to 6% to 7% merely because it is so big now that there are not enough markets in the world to sell to for the amount of production that is possible there.

Is Climate Change Going To Kill Us All - No, Without It We Wouldn't Even Be Here In The First Place

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 06:56:48 -0600

Many a world leader has stated that Climate Change is the most serious issue confronting humankind. But, I ask; what would a politician know about Climate Science if they are not even scientists? It's interesting that if you doubt Global Warming Theory - you are called a "Denier" of science because there is a so-called "consensus" on this issue with climate scientists who get their paychecks from research grants to prove global warming theory is correct, and yet, "consensus" doesn't have anything to do with actual science, consensus is more of a democratic political term.



CO2 Is a Molecule - It Is A Gas Above Negative 109.3 F, It's Not Evil

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:58:10 -0600

When it comes to Global Warming or Climate Change, I for one am not all that concerned about mankind's CO2 output - in fact, I am not too concerned with CO2 at all. Let's discuss this shall we? You see, human emissions from CO2 actually is a very small part of the total CO2 in the atmosphere (about 3% of the total CO2 output on Planet Earth is all). A large wildfire in Australia puts out more CO2 than all of China in 10 months, if you can believe that. If global warming alarmists are worried about CO2 output, then perhaps they need to go talk to coal burning European Nations, who by the way are also driving diesel cars emitting more CO2 and soot.
