Morano on Gore's flip-flop in support of 'clean coal': 'This is the camel's nose in the tent, metaphorically, he is trying to make the climate agenda sound painless. He is claiming in this 1992 video clip that coal is no problem. He claims to the people in Kentucky and Tennessee that they need have no fear. But just 15 or so years later, President Obama comes in and says we will bankrupt the coal industry and his administration comes in and starts literally shutting down the coal industry because of the climate agenda."
"Gore was deceiving the people back in 1992 and knowing full well that he is wanted to move the agenda forward. Trying to get the Rio earth summit started which would lead to the Kyoto protocol which would lead to the UN Paris climate agreement. The Rio summit in 1992 started all UN framework. Gore was no dummy, he knows what he's doing telling people in Tennessee and Kentucky that they have no worries about coal. If you could go back in time, you'd say 'All of you have to worry.' Coal was very much under threat, regardless of what Al Gore was claiming at the time."
In a new study, a climatologist and a professor of astrophysics teamed up to explore whether an extinct pre-human species could have caused global warming 56 million years ago. Geological records reveal a period of dramatic change buried deep in the planet's history known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM).
Their thinking could have widespread implications for our understanding of how best to look for alien life on other planets.
Flashback 2009: Scientists are now seeing signals that the Sahara desert and surrounding regions are greening due to increasing rainfall. If sustained, these rains could revitalize drought-ravaged regions, reclaiming them for farming communities. This desert-shrinking trend is supported by climate models, which predict a return to conditions that turned the Sahara into a lush savanna some 12,000 years ago.
Back in 1973, HH Lamb knew that the Sahel drought then was due to global cooling
In his seminal 1982 book Climate, History, and the Modern World, the renown climatologist Dr. H.H. Lamb revealed that sea ice in the subarctic and Arctic regions was much less extensive during the Medieval Warm Period (9th-13th centuries) compared to today.
