Global Warming May Affect Carbon Storing Capacity of Trees

The study confirmed what others have already shown, that a warmer climate will cause faster decomposition of organic matter in the forest soil, which in turn will lead to a faster release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
However, for the first time in a field experiment, this study also showed that warmer temperatures also increase the gain of carbon dioxide in trees, which will partially offset the carbon lost to the atmosphere through decomposition.

A Tale of Two Doomsayers

Both are self proclaimed prophets predicting the end of the world.
Both have benefited financially by their fear mongering.
Both of their predictions failed to come true.
Both have changed their predictions to a later date.
The main difference between the two is the press makes fun of Camping but at the same time still supports Gore.

Diane Sawyer on Tornadoes: ‘This Is the Evidence of a Kind of Preview of Life Under Global Warming?’

awyer set up the subsequent World News story: “Is this it, this is the evidence of a kind of preview of life under global warming?” Reporter Jim Avila, who called the tornadoes “nature’s payback,” cited a thousand tornadoes and “counting so far, compared to 500 in an average year.” He turned to Heidi Cullen of Climate Central who, he relayed, says climate change “can be blamed for a general increase in extreme weather, science cannot specifically point to climate change for this hyper-deadly tornado season.”

God Reminds Us He’s Still Out There

It’s Saturday night just after 6:00 PM and this is was the view from the RV. There was no Apocalypse but I half expected it to with a view like this. I think God took advantage of the Apocalypse hype to remind us He’s still out there.

The Father of Weaponized weather: the interview

[]( eteran weather modification expert Ben Livingston is a former Navy Physicist who briefed President Lyndon B. Johnson on the effectiveness of weather control back in the 1960′s during the Vietnam era, when he was involved in cloud seeding programs that worked to slow down the advance of Vietnamese and …

The Truth About Greenhouse Gases

As far as green plants are concerned, CO2 is not a pollutant, but part of their daily bread–like water, sunlight, nitrogen, and other essential elements. Most green plants evolved at CO2 levels of several thousand ppm, many times higher than now. Plants grow better and have better flowers and fruit at higher levels. Commercial greenhouse operators recognize this when they artificially increase the concentrations inside their greenhouses to over 1000 ppm.

Warmist Mantra Wearing Out

We are fast approaching a watershed moment in history for the mainstream media, and the so-called global warming crisis may end up being major huge factor in it. We’ve been told nice, neat stories of global warming as a pre-established fact, with non-stop narratives of why skeptics should be ignored rather than explanations of how they were disproved. This will turn from being the very thing keeping the issue alive to what ultimately accelerates its collapse, as more and more people demand answers to the most basic of questions about the underlying science, the faults in the IPCC, and what has to happen if the corruption accusation against skeptic scientists turns out to be a fabrication by a small group of enviro-activists.

Proposed Vikings Stadium on Big Island

The Minnesota Vikings need a new football stadium, and there a lot all of proposals out there but none of them seem to be quite right. I think we are missing out on a huge opportunity to use our Viking roots and our lakes to build the coolest stadium ever by putting the new Vikings stadium on Big Island on Lake Minnetonka.

M4GW at The Capital

M4GW was at the Tax Cut Rally at the Capital in Saint Paul on Saturday, unlike last year’s rally it was a beautiful day, hence the name of our group. As I drove to the Capital I couldn’t help but notice the giant glaciers in the Sear parking lot. It was May 7th and they were still huge, so I took this picture. I am going to go back on The 4th of July and see if they are still there. And as our mascot “Chicken Little” says “the glaciers are melting the glaciers are melting!” In this case I think its a good thing.
