Kickstopper! Putting a Stop to Synthetic Biology Pollution | ETC Group

At the end of April 2013, ETC Group learned that three biohackers from Singularity University in California had mounted a project on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter. It was a plan to carry out the worlds first environmental release of an avowedly Synthetic Biology organism - a glow-in-the dark arabidopsis plant. Shockingly the 'Glowing Plants' kickstarter project promised to mail up to 100 bioengineered seeds to anyone from the United States who gave them $40 online . To date over 4000 people expect to receive syn bio seeds in the post.

Climategate U-turn: Astonishment as scientist at centre of global warming email row admits data not well organised | Mail Online

Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is %u2018not as good as it should be%u2019. The data is crucial to the famous %u2018hockey stick graph%u2019 used by climate change advocates to support the theory. Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now %u2013 suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

UN Security Stops Journalist’s Questions About ClimateGate

A Stanford Professor has used United Nation security officers to silence a journalist asking him %u201Cinconvenient questions%u201D during a press briefing at the climate change conference in Copenhagen. Professor Stephen Schneider%u2019s assistant requested armed UN security officers who held film maker Phelim McAleer, ordered him to stop filming and prevented further questioning after the press conference where the Stanford academic was launching a book.

Obama’s Science Adviser Confirms the Scandal — Unintentionally

Now, I wouldn%u2019t want to jump to any conclusions here, but it kind of looks to me like the %u201Csmall group of scientists%u201D caught out by Climategate are pretty much the same people who make up the vast and strong scientific consensus on global warming and write the official reports that the U.S. and other governments rely on to inform their policy decisions. I%u2019m sure Dr. John P. Holdren, President Obama%u2019s science adviser, has a plausible alternative explanation. He always does.

BBC News - Himalayan glaciers melting deadline 'a mistake'

In its 2007 report, the Nobel Prize-winning Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said: "Glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate. "Its total area will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometres by the year 2035," the report said.

Global Warming: A closer look at the numbers

Just how much of the "Greenhouse Effect" is caused by human activity? It is about 0.28%, if water vapor is taken into account-- about 5.53%, if not. This point is so crucial to the debate over global warming that how water vapor is or isn't factored into an analysis of Earth's greenhouse gases makes the difference between describing a significant human contribution to the greenhouse effect, or a negligible one.

The Other Paper > Front > MEDIA MORSELS: Ganahl debunks global warming

Just when you thought it was safe to assume that everyone had pretty much accepted climate change and moved on, here comes rogue NBC 4 chief meteorologist Jym Ganahl to blow your freaking mind. “Just wait 5 or 10 years, and it will be very obvious. They’ll have egg on their faces,” Ganahl said this week of global warming advocates.
