Hail Hysteria: Why Rising Insurance Costs Are Not Linked to ‘Climate Driven’ Hail Storms

Climate Depot Special Report Full 19-page Special-Report-on-Hailstorms EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A slew of damaging hailstorms throughout Texas and portions of the U.S. Great Plains in recent weeks have sparked conversation once again about how human-caused climate change is supposedly “supercharging” our weather, making incidents of severe convective storms both more extreme and more dangerous to human […]

Antarctic ice expanding! New Study in journal Nature reveals ’85 years of glacier growth & stability in East Antarctica’ – ‘Ice-sheet wide mass balance estimates start[ed] in late 1970s…have exhibited either an overall mass gain or been relative unchanged’

Early aerial expedition photos reveal 85 years of glacier growth and stability in East Antarctica

Nature Communications: Our results demonstrate that the stability and growth in ice elevations observed in terrestrial basins over the past few decades are part of a trend spanning at least a century, and highlight the importance of understanding long-term changes when interpreting current dynamics. … However, in Antarctica, the scarcity of historical climate data makes climate reanalysis estimates before the 1970s largely uncertain10,23, and observed trends cannot clearly be distinguished from natural variability24,25

Currently, the earliest ice-sheet wide mass balance estimates start in the late 1970s3,6,7, and since then all the sub-regions examined in this study have exhibited either an overall mass gain or been relative unchanged.

Regardless of potential climatic changes, our results indicate that the glacier in Kemp and Mac Robertson Land and along Ingrid Christensen Coast, have accumulated mass during the past 85 years which inevitably have mitigated parts of the more recent mass loss from the marine basins in East Antarctica and the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). This positive accumulation trend and positive mass balance is anticipated to persist as snowfall is expected to increase over the entire EAIS in the next century54,55, and ice sheet modeling studies project positive mass balance estimates in all three sub-regions across all future RCP scenarios56. Lastly, we determine frontal changes of 21 glaciers from 1937 to 2023 (Table S1 and Fig. S11). From the 85 years of observations, we find two distinct regional patterns; one of constant glacier surface elevations and one of ice thickening.

Air Turbulence Scare Based On One Dodgy Study

Air Turbulence Scare Based On One Dodgy Study By Paul Homewood The whole of the media’s scare story that turbulence is getting worse hinges entirely on one single study, reported by Sky last year:     https://news.sky.com/story/climate-change-is-causing-more-turbulence-on-flights-say-scientists-12898743 In other words, it is largely based on just one spot in the North Atlantic, which shows an increase […]

Demonized as contributing to climate change, cattle may actually decrease emissions, research shows

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/environment/demonized-contributing-climate-change-cattle-may-decrease-emissions The researchers found that 19%-30% of methane emissions were from the cattle, but the rest was from the wetland soils. If the cows are removed, their research shows, it actually increases the amount of methane the wetland ecosystems give off. By Kevin Killough Few things have escaped environmentalists’ scorn, and even cows have not […]

Nature Publication: Researchers Find Arctic Region 10,000 Years Ago Warmer Than Today

New Report: Global hurricane activity NOT getting worse – ‘Neither increasing in number nor in intensity’

https://mailchi.mp/63a419a0c272/global-hurricane-activity-not-getting-worse-new-report-confirms-201571?e=0b1369f9f8 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 […]

Study: Clearer skies may be accelerating global warming – Declining pollution causing warming – ‘Earth’s skies are getting clearer & letting in more sunshine’

https://www.science.org/content/article/clearer-skies-may-be-accelerating-global-warming 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 […]

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.”
