US Biofuels increase rather than decrease CO2 emissions.

Geoff Brown at The Australian Climate Sceptics Blog - 9 minutes ago
An article published in Climate Change under the title Carbon balance effects of U.S. biofuel production and use DeCicco, J.M., Liu, D.Y., Heo, J. et al. Climatic Change (2016). doi:10.1007/s10584-016-1764-4 comes to the conclusion that: Once estimates from the literature for process emissions and displacement effects including land-use change are considered, the conclusion is that U.S. biofuel use to date is associated with a net increase rather than a net decrease in CO2 emissions. Uh-oh! Another nail in the coffin of the AGW hoax, AbstractThe use of liquid biofuels has expanded ... more »

Glickson, consensus and hysteria: the state of alarmism

Geoff Brown at The Australian Climate Sceptics Blog - 9 minutes ago
*Anthony Cox* Andrew Glikson is implacable in his alarmism. His latest effort is to organise 154 fellow academics, all on the public teat, to write a letter pleading to shut down coal and basically Australia’s economy. The letter is a cliché of alarmist platitudes and shibboleths. One such cliché is misanthropy. Glikson and his fellow alarmists agree with Turnbull’s ridiculous statement that human influence on Earth is a *massive science experiment*with *catastrophic* results. Glikson is like other alarmists who compare human influence to 4 atomic bombs going off every second. Why ... more »

In A Race Between Two Really Awful Senate Candidates, The Only Good Move Is To Refuse To Participate

Chuck Schumer has managed-- along with Montana sock puppet Jon Tester-- to set up a series of lesser-of-two-evils contests that will determine which party controls Congress.

But then look at the garbage each one is running against: respectively Rob Portman and Pat Toomey. Portman is worse than Strickland and Toomey is worse than McGinty, but that doesn't make either Strickland or McGinty any more fit for office. Schumer planted a series of discredited li... more »
