Not many people would think coral reef restoration would be of much interest to business entrepreneurs. But as Laura Huggins of the group PERC notes, such interest does exist, and is especially needed in Florida.
Australian climate professor Chris Turney put the lives of his fellow scientists and a host of Russian seamen at risk by his foolish attempt to "prove" that manmade global warming is destroying the East Antarctic ice sheet. But he is hardly the first arrogant fool to have to be rescued from a botched global warming stunt. Yet Turney and his fellows can point fingers to their colleagues at the EPA and the UN's IPCC as co-conspirators in their doomed adventures. We need to stand up and stop funding this nonsense before someone really gets hurt.
The Fukushima disaster has "led to some wild speculation on the widespread dangers of Fukushima radiation on the internet... I’m here to tell you that these posts are just plain garbage. While there are terrible things that happened around the Fukushima Power Plant in Japan; Alaska, Hawaii and the West Coast aren’t in any danger. These posts were meant to scare people (and possibly written by terrified authors). They did just that, but there is a severe lack of facts in these posts. Which is why I am here to give you the facts, and nothing but the facts."
Finding a place to connect to wireless internet usually isn’t too difficult. But one of the places it can be is if you find yourself out in the middle of the ocean. All that may change now as researchers at the University at Buffalo have developed a new deep-sea computer technology network.
What can we do to clean up our oceans? Well one surprising answer may be to open up our coastlines to more offshore oil drilling, according to Ben Lieberman, a senior policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation.
Despite protection by the federal government, coral reef coverage in the Florida Keys has declined dramatically in recent years. Reed Watson of the Property and Environment Resource Center believes free-market intervention may help address this problem and here explains why.
The Somali pirates remind us that pirates and bandits can still cut our access to goods and services. North Korea’s closed borders remind us of the poverty and human degradation that goes with isolation. Let us all hope that the U.S. Navy continues to be a global force for the good in the coming centuries ahead. In fact, our technology should even let us trade in the next “little ice age.”
NOAA assembled 11,967 tropical storm tracks from 1842 to 2012, illustrating that hurricanes are natural and always have been. Preparing for hurricanes is prudent. Hyping them to push the global warming agenda is propaganda.
The Great White Shark is a renowned ocean predator thanks to the movie “Jaws.” But in recent decades, a West-Coast cousin of this fearsome animal has declined in number to the point that conservation officials have been considering placing it on the Endangered Species List. Now comes a new study by NOAA allaying these fears.
When you hear about melting glaciers in Greenland, you probably think this a result of manmade global warming. But more and more scientists are coming to an understanding that Greenland’s ice sheet has been naturally melting for millennia. . .
“At current melt rates, the Greenland ice sheet would take about 13,000 years to melt completely, which would result in a global sea level rise of more than 21 feet (6.5 meters).”
To feed a growing world population, our ability to maximize fish yields has become a very important priority. But with environmental concerns being raised about depleted ocean stocks, and health alarms scaring others away from eating farmed fish, this matter has become a slippery one to solve.
What can we do to clean up our oceans? Well one surprising answer may be to open up our coastlines to more offshore oil drilling, according to Ben Lieberman, a Senior Policy Analyst at the Heritage Foundation.
By Willie SoonRegulatory actions being debated in Florida should raise bright red flags for Sunshine State residents, other US states, and even other countries. On May 24, the Environmental Assessment and Restoration Division of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) issued a seriously flawed draft report, proposing much stricter limits for mercury in Florida’s river, stream, lake and coastal waters. The FDEP claims the rules are based on sound science and will improve environmental quality and public health. However, my studies of mercury (Hg) and its biologically toxic form, methylmercury (MeHg), over the past ten years make it clear that [...]
By Justin Pulliam THE NEWS that Lord Monckton was to give his “Climate of Freedom” lecture at Union College in Schenectady, New York, had thrown the university’s environmentalists into a turmoil. The campus environmentalists set up a Facebook page announcing a counter-meeting of their own immediately following Monckton’s lecture. There is no debate about global warming, they announced. There is a consensus. The science is settled. Their meeting would be addressed by professors and PhDs, the “true” scientists, no less. Sparks, it seemed, were gonna fly. Traveling with Lord Monckton on the East Coast leg of his current whistle-stop tour of [...]
