Bill Gates is attempting to do what no other governmental officials have been able to accomplish thus far: get dead serious about climate change. Microsoft’s co-founder has announced his plan to invest $2 billion of his own money into Earth-friendly technologies to accelerate what he sees as a rather lackadaisical approach to halting what could be the end of mankind as we know it.

Comments Off on New documents prove leading climate change denier was paid $1.2M by fossil fuel companies to fuel “debate” about global warming

For years “scientist” Wei-Hock Soon has attempted to convince the public that the earth’s warming climate is caused by variations in the sun’s energy instead of carbon emissions. Now new documents prove that Soon was paid by fossil fuel companies to lie about climate change . Over the last 14 years, Soon accepted $1.2 million from energy companies in exchange for his “scientific proof” that claims dirty energy is not the primary cause of global warming.

Comments Off on New report shows leading climate change denier paid millions to fuel “debate” about global warming

In an effort to try to deny the obvious and convince Americans  that climate change is not caused by human actions, politicians have, for years, cited “scientists” like Wei-Hock Soon, who claimed that he found scientific evidence to support the theory. Climatologists have been skeptical of Soon’s research and with good reason. New documents prove that Soon was paid by fossil fuel companies to produce the “evidence” that debunked dirty energy as the primary cause of global warming. Over the last 14 years, Soon accepted $1.2 million from energy companies in exchange for his “scientific proof.” Read the rest of New report shows leading climate change denier paid millions to fuel “debate” about global warming Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: affects of climate change , Climate Change , climate change global warming , climate change research , climate change scientists , funding climate change , global warming , harvard smithsonian scientist , scientific funding for climate change , wei-hock soon

Scientists Report Dramatic Jump in Carbon Dioxide Emissions in 2012, Predict Faster Warming

Comments Off on Scientists Report Dramatic Jump in Carbon Dioxide Emissions in 2012, Predict Faster Warming

Global emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel burning jumped dramatically over the past year, making it unlikely that global warming can be limited to 2 degrees by 2020, which was an international goal set by the Copenhagen Accord in 2009. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recorded a CO2 jump by 2.67 parts per million since 2011 which is the second highest greenhouse emissions rise since 1959, when the agency started measuring carbon levels.

Comments Off on The Hidden Ark: 500 Foot Noah’s Ark-Style Zoo to be Constructed in Miami

Last year, we reported that Dutchman Johan Huibers built a life-size Noah’s Ark as a biblical attraction for the Netherlands. Now four Christians from Florida are taking a page out of his book by unveiling plans to build a similarly huge ark – but in this case they will create a floating menagerie dubbed the Hidden Ark ! Their goal is “to help and preserve helpless animals as God taught us,” and the Hidden Ark will serve as a zoo and environmental education center for visitors both on-site and online.
