'The planet is not in danger of catastrophic man made global warming. Even if we burn all the world's recoverable fossil fuels it will still only result in a temperature rise of less than 1.2 per cent. So say The Right Climate Stuff Research Team, a group of retired NASA Apollo scientists and engineers - the men who put Neil Armstrong on the moon - in a new report. "It's an embarrassment to those of us who put NASA's name on the map to have people like James Hansen popping off about global warming," says the project's leader Hal Doiron. Doiron was one of 40 ex NASA employees - including seven astronauts - who wrote in April 2012 to NASA administrator Charles Bolden protesting about the organization's promotion of climate change alarmism, notably via its resident environmental activist James Hansen.
NASA’s Gavin Schmidt & colleagues finds ‘that a combination of factors, by coincidence, conspired to dampen warming trends in the real world after about 1992’
Latest excuse for global temperature standstill mocked by skeptics: 'Apparently, if you go back and rework all the forcings, taking into account new data estimates (add half a bottle of post-hoc figures) and 'reanalyses' of old data (add a tablespoon of computer simulation) you can bridge the gap and explain away the pause.’
How to prevent crime? 'Rein in the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing global warming in the first place.'
Controversial new research predicts that over the coming century, rising temperatures will result in more violent crime...'Police have long operated with the understanding that 'the summer is more dangerous than the winter,' explains Roman. 'To the extent that climate change causes people to be out and interacting more, there will be more crime.'
'Global warming isn't just going to melt the Arctic and flood our cities—it's also going to make Americans more likely to kill each other. That's the conclusion of a controversial new study that uses historic crime and temperature data to show that hotter weather leads to more murders, more rapes, more robberies, more assaults, and more property crimes. "Looking at the past, we see a strong relationship between temperature and crime," says study author Matthew Ranson, an economist with policy consulting firm Abt Associates. "We think that is likely to continue in the future."
