Going, Going Green – March 6, 2007

I first read this article in the print version of the magazine Sports Illustrated (one of the few paper versions of something that I will still read).  This article takes the premise that global warming is already present, it is affecting the way that we currently play sports, and will dramatically affect the way we play sports in the future (near and far).  There is very little scientific analysis in this article – it simply assumes that global warming is real.  It also makes some fairly stark statements about how global warming is already affecting us (I am not sure that these statements are scientifically sound).  When a publication like Sports Illustrated has a front page article about global warming, you know that this is a topic that will stick around for many more months (years?).


Global Warming: The Cold, Hard Facts?

Canada Free Press – February 5, 2007

This is a must read article for everyone interested in this subject.  I am hesitant to copy any part of this article into my post since I know that many people only read my excerpts and don’t click through to the source.  Please read my quotes below but then click on the link to the actual article.  It is written by a climatologist that states that the global warming panic is over-blown and we need to sit back and relax.

I usually post twice a day.  In the interest of keeping this post at the top for longer, I will have no further posts today.

Global Warming, as we think we know it, doesn’t exist.


Global warming is making us sick

That’s fit – February 26, 2007

This blog offers an interesting conclusion. Not sure if the facts support the case that global warming is the cause for disease and infestation propagation to new areas of the world. The global temperature has only increased .6 deg C in the past 100 years and has been pretty constant (if not slightly down) in the last 10 or so. Seems like there may be a different cause for this change.

The original article is behind a password, so I will only link to the blog and you can choose to follow this or not. The original link is in the body of the quoted blog article.


Experts question theory on global warming

New Delhi – February 11, 2007

This is an interesting article which does not rebut the theories on global warming or the melting of glaciers. It simply says that more research is needed. I find it interesting that, according to this article, less than 1% of the Indian glaciers have been studied and yet some people believe that the question of global warming has already been answered.

Nearly 200 years data has shown that nothing abnormal has occurred in any of these glaciers.The issue of glacial retreat is being sensationalised by a few individuals

debunked the theory that Gangotri glacier is retreating alarmingly

recent studies in the Gangotri and Zanskar areas (Drung- Drung, Kagriz glaciers) have not shown any evidence of major retreat.
