    Human chain, © Ruben Neugebauer / Greenpeace On Saturday, 23rd August, thousands of people made their way to the German-Polish border region Lusatia, to confront one of the biggest environmental disasters right in the middle of Europe. They formed a human chain of 8 km connecting German and Polish villages that are supposed to make way for open-pit lignite mines. If Swedish state-owned energy corporation Vattenfall and Polish energy group PGE go ahead with plans to expand mining operations in the region, Europe’s climate targets will go down the drain. Lignite, also known as brown coal, is…

    In a recent post, I observed that Mann’s Statement of Claim contained a bizarre misrepresentation about the nature of Mann’s research, as it falsely credited Mann with being “one of the first” to document the increase in 20th century temperatures. Reader PhilH, a retired judge, observed that, on its own, the misrepresentation was merely odd and that it would have significance for the pleadings only if it could be connected to the narrative of the case. In today’s post, I’ll try to do exactly that. The “money quote” chosen by Mann’s lawyers as…

    Eight years after Al Gore wrote a book and made a movie to impress upon us the "planetary emergency of global warming" (his subtitle for An Inconvenient Truth), he wrote an article with a more optimistic feel- ing in the 18 June 2014 issue of Rolling Stone. He begins "The Turning Point: New Hope for Climate" as follows:Al Gore - Climate Reality Leadership CorpIn the struggle to solve the climate crisis, a powerful, largely unnoticed shift is taking place.

    I work in the Arab World, and I’ve been fortunate to meet and interact with  dedicated activists in many countries who persist in their activism for a better and more just world, regardless of the very diverse and shifting political contexts. Recently, however, the deadly assault on the Gaza strip, has affected friends and allies I have there and has left me deeply troubled. Half of our online supporters in Palestine reside in Gaza, and I worry for their safety, but even activists who live in other parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territories have been affected.   Muna Dajani, a…

    10,000s people will form 8km human chain between German and Polish villages   The international fight against dirty energy will reach a crescendo this weekend, as thousands of people join together in an unprecedented stand against coal expansion. Hidden away in the rural Lausitz region, stretching across the German-Polish border, a huge environmental disaster is unfolding. On the German side of the border, Swedish energy company Vattenfall plans to further expand existing mining operations in the region, while in Poland, state-owned PGE wants to extract almost two million tonnes of brown…
  • 10 reasons to sign up for the People’s Climate March now (and not later)

    21 Aug 2014 | 3:39 pm
    1. Signing up now could mean two people later: When you sign up, it makes it that much easier for your neighbor to join you. And once they join, they’ll need time to convince their partner and kids. And once the kids are coming, their friends will want to join, but need to convince their parents. And so on. If we had all the time in the world, making this a huge march would be easy. But we don’t: we have one month, and we need everyone soon. 2. So that we can reserve enough buses. There will be buses heading to the march from all over the country — but you can’t rent a…

  • The “Discovery” of the EPA Inquiry

    Steve McIntyre
    24 Aug 2014 | 4:17 pm
    One of the essential elements in Mann’s reliance on EPA findings is his assertion that his supposed exoneration by EPA had been “widely available and commented” on in the media and had been “read by the Defendants”: All of the above reports and publications were widely available and commented upon in the national and international media. All were read by the Defendants. The claim that all nine “inquiry” reports had been “read” by Steyn and the other defendants is surely a fantasy on the part of Mann and his lawyers. While Steyn seems to be…

Mann’s hypocrisy has been widely noted. Unpublicized thus far is a discussion by EPA, in which EPA concluded that Mann’s accusations of “scientific fraud” were within the scope of “acceptable and appropriate” scientific exchange and that it is “entirely acceptable and appropriate for scientists to express their opinions and challenge papers that…

This particular false claim was in the same paragraph as Mann’s false claim to have received a Nobel prize. While the latter false claim has received widespread and well-deserved derision, Mann’s false description of the nature of his research has thus far passed without…

  • IPCC attribution statements redux: A response to Judith Curry

    I have written a number of times about the procedure used to attribute recent climate change (here in 2010, in 2012 (about the AR4 statement), and again in 2013 after AR5 was released). For people who want a summary of what the attribution problem is, how we think about the human contributions and why the IPCC reaches the conclusions it does, read those posts instead of this one. The bottom line is that multiple studies indicate with very strong confidence that human activity is the dominant component in the warming of the last 50 to 60 years, and that our best estimates are that pretty much…
  • How much methane came out of that hole in Siberia?

    david
    13 Aug 2014 | 5:03 pm
    Siberia has explosion holes in it that smell like methane, and there are newly found bubbles of methane in the Arctic Ocean. As a result, journalists are contacting me assuming that the Arctic Methane Apocalypse has begun. However, as a climate scientist I remain much more concerned about the fossil fuel industry than I am about Arctic methane. Short answer: It would take about 20,000,000 such eruptions within a few years to generate the standard Arctic Methane Apocalypse that people have been talking about. Here’s where that statement comes from: How much methane emission is “a lot”?

Guest post by Dim Coumou There has been an ongoing debate, both in and outside the scientific community, whether rapid climate change in the Arctic might affect circulation patterns in the mid-latitudes, and thereby possibly the frequency or intensity of extreme weather events. The Arctic has been warming much faster than the rest of the globe (about twice the rate), associated with a rapid decline in sea-ice extent. If…

It’s still at the employer’s digression Even with this new law in place, employers can still refuse their employees flexible working hours. However, they must deal with requests in a reasonable…
