NYT: Will electric cars become an environmental catastrophe? – ‘Electric cars & renewable energy may not be as green as they appear’

  https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2021/05/10/nyt-will-electric-cars-become-an-environmental-catastrophe-n388950 BY ED MORRISSEY Answer: Of course they will, with mining being among the many other issues in pushing to eliminate internal-combustion engines in favor of an all-electric fleet. No one who has studied the composition of the energy-storage systems in electric cars could possibly miss the environmental dangers of such a transformation. The most interesting […]

CNN: Electric cars could ‘wipe out this species’ – ‘World will need to mine 42 times as much lithium as was mined in 2020’ to meet UN Paris goals

    https://hotair.com/ed-morrissey/2021/05/11/now-its-cnn-electric-cars-could-wipe-out-this-species-n389095 BY ED MORRISSEY First the New York Times warned about the environmental impact of transforming America’s vehicles to electric. Now CNN reports on the devastating consequences of the mining that such a transformation would necessitate. Environmentalists want to save a species of buckwheat from extinction, an issue that would be largely academic except for the […]

Growing Antarctic Sea Ice Defies Climate Models

  https://www.scienceunderattack.com/blog/2021/3/8/growing-antarctic-sea-ice-defies-climate-models-72 March 08, 2021 By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander We saw in the previous post how computer climate models greatly exaggerate short-term warming. Something else they get wrong is the behavior of Antarctic sea ice. According to the models, sea ice at both the North and South Poles should shrink as global temperatures rise. […]

Physicist: ‘How Near-Saturation of CO2 Limits Future Global Warming’ – ‘Extra CO2 quickly becomes less effective in raising global temps’

  https://www.scienceunderattack.com/blog/2021/4/5/how-near-saturation-of-co2-limits-future-global-warming-74 By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander The climate change narrative is based in part on the concept that adding more and more CO2 to the atmosphere will cause the planet to become unbearably hot. But recent research refutes this notion by concluding that extra CO2 quickly becomes less effective in raising global temperatures – a saturation […]

Is Recent Record Cold Just La Niña, or the Onset of Global Cooling? Cold snap is not about to let up

https://www.scienceunderattack.com/blog/2021/5/17/is-recent-record-cold-just-la-nina-or-the-onset-of-global-cooling-77 Is Recent Record Cold Just La Niña, or the Onset of Global Cooling? By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander Little noticed by the mainstream media in their obsession with global warming is an exceptionally chilly 2020-21 winter in the Northern Hemisphere and an unusually early start to the Southern Hemisphere winter. Low temperature and snowfall […]

Study: Little Evidence for Link between Natural Disasters & ‘Global Warming’

  https://www.scienceunderattack.com/blog/2021/5/3/little-evidence-for-link-between-natural-disasters-and-global-warming-76   By Physicist Dr. Ralph Alexander A new report on extreme weather in 2020 shows how socio-economic studies of natural disasters have been used to buttress the popular but mistaken belief that global warming causes weather extremes. Two international agencies, UNDRR (the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction) – in conjunction with CRED […]
