New Report: Global hurricane activity NOT getting worse – ‘Neither increasing in number nor in intensity’ London, 16 April – The Global Warming Policy Foundation has today published its periodic review of global hurricane activity. The author, climate researcher Paul Homewood, says that official data is absolutely clear: hurricanes are neither increasing in number nor in intensity. Homewood says: “The observational data published by meteorological agencies in 2023 has confirmed once […]

Climate Cooking: ‘How a few billionaires (Steyer, Bloomberg & Paulson) helped push climate science to the extremes’ By Roger Pielke Jr.: Excerpt: At the center of the corruption of climate science discussed here sits a highly technical scenario of the future called Representation Concentration Pathway 8.5 or RCP8.5. Longtime readers of THB will no doubt be familiar with RCP8.5 and its consequences, but for anyone needing a quick primer, have a […]

Study: Clearer skies may be accelerating global warming – Declining pollution causing warming – ‘Earth’s skies are getting clearer & letting in more sunshine’ Excerpt: A new study, published Wednesday in Communications Earth & Environment, suggests one reason for such an acceleration: Earth’s skies are getting clearer and letting in more sunshine. The study was prompted by a set of NASA instruments in space that since 2001 have tracked the delicate balance of energy entering and leaving the […]

Euro court rules ‘climate action’ is a human right – ‘Climate inaction’ violated human rights

The European Court of Human Rights, in a landmark ruling that could have major implications across 48 European countries, rulng for the 2,000 members of Switzerland’s Senior Women for Climate Protection (average age: 74), the ECHR held the country’s “fail[ure] to comply with its duties” to meet its emissions reductions targets and otherwise protect its citizens from the ravages of the climate crisis. The ruling, which cannot be appealed, is legally binding on all 46 member states of the Council of Europe.

NBC New York cites professor who links climate change to recent earthquake: Excess rain leads to floods that ‘could result in landslides’ that can ‘lubricate’ faults leading to more earthquakes

Dr. Antonios Marsellos, an associate professor in the Department of Geology, Environment, and Sustainability at Hofstra University, tries to explain. “An earthquake is based on tectonic plates, and New York is sitting on a ‘lazy’ plate, which is good, meaning we do not have so many earthquakes, but there are other things that happen — too much rain or drought,” Dr. Marsellos told NBC New York. The rain can lead to floods that if they go on long enough, could result in landslides. The slides can “lubricate” faults and may be a reason for the increased frequency of quakes, explained Dr. Marsellos.

Jeffrey Park, professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Yale University, also thinks that climate change had a hand in the earth moving billions of tons of rocks. “Dr. Park indicated the continuous rise in sea levels can increase the amount of pressure exerted on the Earth’s shelves and coastlines, resulting in mostly scattered and infrequent quakes with long lead times. The positive takeaway is that experts say there is no need to be alarmed and no elevated quake is expected any time soon.”

Now they’re coming for your pants! Wearing BLUE JEANS creates huge carbon footprint: Study reveals wearing a pair just once is the equivalent to driving a car for 6.4 miles

Researchers say that jeans sold for the fast fashion market produce 11 times more C02 per wear than traditional alternatives

UK Daily Mail – April 5, 2024: Scientists from the Guangdong University of Technology analysed the life cycle of a pair of Levi’s jeans from growing the cotton to their eventual disposal. They found that some jeans were worn only seven times – earning them the classifiation of ‘fast fashion’ – and produced 11 times more CO2 than jeans wore more often. … The total carbon footprint, 48 per cent is caused by the washing, drying and ironing of jeans after purchase. … the production of the jeans and fibre, making up 70 per cent of the total emissions. The remaining emissions are largely created by the transportation of the jeans from factories to consumers, making up 21 per cent of total emissions. … 

Dr Ya Zhou, the study’s lead author says:’The humble wardrobe staple – a pair of jeans – has a significant impact on the environment.’ – ‘By second-hand trading, people can sell the unlike or unused clothes and make a profit.  ‘In China, the growing focus on environmental protection and sustainability among Chinese millennials and Generation Z is driving the growth of the second-hand trade industry.’


Washington Post – How to find the best, most sustainable jeans for your wardrobe – March 8, 2024: “Your jeans also add to the environmental footprint of the apparel industry, which is responsible for somewhere between 8 and 10 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and about 4 percent of solid waste in the United States alone. A slew of companies are redesigning jeans to lower their footprint, and a few of these models are now available in stores.”

Australians are facing a new ‘climate criminal’ — DIRT! Soil’s CO2 emissions are ‘threatening to ruin the country’s net zero goals’

Australians are facing a new “climate criminal” – soil BY RHODA WILSON A study published in the Nature Portfolio Journal warns that Australia’s soil is becoming a net carbon emitter and threatens to ruin the country’s net zero goals. “They claim that over the next 80 years, Australian soil … will release up to 100 megatons of CO2 into […]
