Crowdfunding temporarily halts oil extraction in Ecuador

No drilling here for now.

Ecuador had agreed last year to accept money in exchange for not drilling foroil in Yasuní National Park, an area of the Amazon rainforest that last year set a record for the most mammal, bird, amphibian and plant species in the world.

But a fundraiser was held last night that collected the $116 million necessary to temporarily halt exploitation of the area for oil…

Al Gore Personally Apologizes for All the Cold Weather

4 al gore 347

The hand of God has somehow gotten in Al Gore’s way

Over the past few months the number of articles on global warming have dropped precipitously and have now stopped altogether.

Speaking at a “Farmers Who Hate the Weather” conference in Fargo, ND, former VP Al Gore admitted, “I don’t know what went wrong. It’s like our efforts have been so effective that we have over corrected.”

Bitterly cold air and howling winds spread across the USA — from the Dakotas to Florida— over the weekend, breaking weather records in the upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and New England.
The wintry blast even shocked International Falls, Minn., the self-described “Icebox of the Nation,” where temperatures bottomed out at 37 below zero Saturday and Sunday mornings, breaking records that have stood since 1979. Sioux Falls, S.D., was 30 below on Saturday morning, the coldest temperature recorded since 1974.
“We basically have an anomalous high-pressure system that came out of Canada and brought some really cold air with it,” reported Jennifer Laflin, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Sioux Falls.
After a slight moderation early this week, yet another cold air mass — likely even colder than this one — is poised to invade the entire eastern two-thirds of the USA by later in the week, said Weather Channel meteorologist Mark Ressler.
The unusually powerful high-pressure ridge causing the current freeze is holding at bay warmer air from the west and allowing frigid air to spill directly south from north-central Canada across the Midwest, Laflin said.
Snow was the main issue over the weekend in much of New England and the interior Northeast, where nearly 3 feet blanketed Burlington, Vt. The 31.8 inches of snow recorded as of Sunday afternoon represented the city’s all-time biggest snowstorm in 120 years of recordkeeping, according to the weather service’s Scott Whittier in South Burlington. Snow was still falling late Sunday in Burlington.
The cold air had marched all the way down the East Coast into south Florida by Sunday, where freeze warnings were issued for nearly the entire state for today.
Robert Ritchey, a tomato grower in Alva, Fla., said temperatures dipped to 39 degrees in his 3-acre fields Saturday night. “I ain’t lost any (crops) yet, and I don’t want to,” Ritchey said.

Bitterly cold air and howling winds spread across the USA — from the Dakotas to Florida— over the weekend, breaking weather records in the upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and New England. And Gore has been sitting on the sidelines in stunned amazement wondering what to do next.

“I’ve spent most of my life warning people that the earth’s temperatures are rising, and that global warming is one of the earth’s greatest problems. I have no clue what the hell went wrong,” admitted Gore.

Scientific Blunder Raises Question About Alarm Over Global Warming

Scientific Blunder Raises Question About Alarm Over Global Warming 

 October snow in London

A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore’s chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record.
