'Briffa's trees were inconvenient, so Mann got rid of them after 1960. The MWP was inconvenient, so Mann made it disappear. The 1930s were inconvenient, so Hansen made them disappear. Sea level not rising is inconvenient, so they added a bogus GIA adjustment...Hayhoe and Hansen ignore data prior to 1960...Trenberth pretends that heat is sinking to the bottom of the ocean'
'Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt, a renewable energy expert, was once one of the fathers of modern green movement in Germany & believed everything PCC preached – until 2 years ago. Doubt came 2 years ago when he was an expert reviewer of an IPCC report on renewable energy. 'I discovered numerous errors and asked myself if the other IPCC reports on climate were similarly sloppy' -- 'In his book he explains how he dug into the IPCC climate report and was horrified by what he had found'
'From cap-and-trade to the Kyoto treaty, it's not enough to make a choice based solely on a trust that this secretive cabal of climate scientists is telling the truth. The taxpayers paid Mr. Mann; they deserve to know exactly what they were getting for their money...Let an informed public decide on its own whether they've been hoodwinked by charlatans, or that the sky really is falling'
Time Mag: Global food production accounts for one-third of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to a comprehensive study published this year in the journal Nature Food that looked at every aspect of food production from transportation to packaging. Meat production alone makes up nearly 60% of that total. The study underscores the growing consensus that in order to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs a dramatic rethinking of how food is produced and consumed...
Increasingly, companies and scientists are viewing insects as an environmentally sustainable alternative source of protein. Crickets, grasshoppers and beetles are already commercially produced and processed for human and animal consumption. Ynsect, a 10-year-old French company, is focused on mealworms, the larval stage of beetles.
Ynsect co-founder and CEO Antoine Hubert: "We are not far from reaching tipping points where then things get worse and it cascades and waterfalls—you can’t stop it anymore. Time is very critical...There is a huge need to reduce our consumption of beef. We should keep beef consumption, grazing, on a smaller scale with high levels of fresh products. But everything that is a processed meat should be 100% replaced at some point by alternatives. Insects will be a part of the answer."
