Catastrophic Climate Change & Runaway Global Warming - David Wasdell

24 minutes into the presentation he talks about NASA being afraid to release findings of methane releases off the coast of San Diego for fear of retribution by the Bush administration. David Wasdell, Director of the Meridian Programme, is a world-renowned expert in the dynamics of climate change. He is also a reviewer of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment reports and the author of numerous papers and presentations on climate change and related topics.

What the Ice Cores Tell Us, and How Deniers Distort it

A widely circulated piece of climate denial nonsense purports to use legitimate evidence from greenland ice cores to debunk the record of global warming. Displaying temperature records out of context, and making the claim of legitimacy by citing the data, and it's primary author, Dr Richard Alley, this popular propaganda piece pretends to be based on actual evidence, when it is anything but. Further explanation here: http://www.skepticalscience.com/crux-of-a-core1.html Richard Alley in the New York Times http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/02/08/richard-alley-on-old-ice-climate-and-co2/ Richard Alley before congress http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2m9SNzxJJA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S_82BUshM8 Richard Alley Speech to American Geophysical Union http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/lectures/lecture_videos/A23A.shtml excerpted here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE6at2IEUOU Alley Dances to explain Ice Ages http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NQPolcYoIc Richard Alley: Conversations from Penn State http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MO7O5mTK0 and here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfAswUeljQ0&feature=ch%20annel Reading Greenland Ice Cores http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MO7O5mTK0

2009 Sea Ice Update

To help support Climate Denial Crock of the Week Go to http://climatecrocks.com/ The 2009 ice melt season has just been completed at the northern polar cap, and observations confirm that the arctic ocean ice cover is continuing a steady decline. The last three melt seasons represent the 3 lowest summer ice areas in the satellite record. Satellite measurements of total summer ice surface have been on a downward slope for 3 decades. In 2007, ice area suffered a spectacular and unpredicted slump. In the last 2 years, summer expanse rebounded from the catastrophic collapse, to mere precipitous decline.

Mars Attacks!!!

To help support Climate Denial Crock of the Week Go to http://climatecrocks.com/ I'm remixing a number of the Climate Denial Crock of the Week videos, in order to address some complaints people have had. Number one, my sound mixing and quality have been poor, and I've gotten some better equipment and more experience, so I can make them a lot easier to listen to. Number two, people have asked for related URLs and sites they can go to, in order to follow up on arguments presented in the video, so I am doing that here. The first-up remix is my debunking of the perennial denier favorite, 'There's Global Warming on Mars", one of my favorites for content, and biggest embarrassments for sound. Here are the supporting links. Mars "global warming": http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article1720024.ece Pluto "global warming": http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/pluto_warming_021009.html supposed warming on other planets: http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-other-planets-solar-system.htm Uranus cooling: http://www.boulder.swri.edu/%7Elayoung/eprint/ur149/Young2001Uranus.pdf related vid, solar activity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Sf_UIQYc20 discussion here: http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-on-mars.htm http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn11642-climate-myths-mars-and-pluto-are-warming-too.html http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn11650-climate-myths-global-warming-is-down-to-the-sun-not-humans.html http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2005/10/global-warming-on-mars/

US Navy Chief Oceanographer: I Was Formerly a Climate Skeptic

Support Climate Denial Crock of the Week, go to http://www.climatecrocks.com Admiral David Titley is the Chief Oceanographer and Navigator of the US Navy. A Phd, he describes himself as a former climate skeptic who has been convinced by the evidence that this is the greatest challenge of the 21st century. Education includes a B.S. in Meteorology from the Pennsylvania State University, a M.S. in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography and Ph.D. in Meteorology, both from the Naval Postgraduate School. He attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Seminar XXI on Foreign Politics, International Relations and National Interest, and is a fellow of the American Meteorological Society. In 2009, Titley assumed duties as oceanographer and navigator of the Navy and director, Task Force Climate Change.

Phoenix Mission and Habitability - Carol Stoker (SETI Talks)

SETI Talks Archive: http:/seti.org/talks Dr. Carol Stoker was a member of the Mars Phoenix Lander team that landed a robot in the polar regions of Mars. Dr. Stoker will present an analysis of results from the Mars Phoenix mission to the North Polar region of Mars that shows that conditions are probably habitable for life in modern times at this location.

NOAA Ocean Acidification - The Other Carbon Dioxide Problem

Fundamental changes in seawater chemistry are occurring throughout the world's oceans. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) from humankind's industrial and agricultural activities has increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. The ocean absorbs almost a third of the CO2 we release into the atmosphere every year, so as atmospheric CO2 levels increase, so do the levels in the ocean. Initially, many scientists focused on the benefits of the ocean removing this greenhouse gas from the atmosphere. However, decades of ocean observations now show that there is also a downside — the CO2 absorbed by the ocean is changing the chemistry of the seawater, a process called ocean acidification. This change in the ocean's chemistry will have profound effects on life in the ocean, and those who depend on it.
