This Isn’t A Map of Global Warming, It’s A Map of Corrupted Temperature Stations

Kevin Drum published this map on his blog, which he says was originally from the Washington Post.  He does not include a link so I can’t give any more background on the chart.  For example, I have no idea which…

Climate change: fracking may be doing more damage than we thought – Vox.com

How buildings can cut 80% of their carbon emissions by 2050

(Cell Press) Energy use in buildings — from heating and cooling your home to keeping the lights on in the office — is responsible for over one-third of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the United States. Slashing building CO2 emissions 80% by 2050 would therefore contribute significantly to combatting climate change. A new model developed by researchers at two US national laboratories appears Aug. 15 in the journal Joule.

Green Energy? Wood-Burning Power Stations Are Eco-Disasters

Burning forests to generate electricity is probably the worst green-energy stupidity. It destroys forests; creates its own pollutants; is less efficient than coal to harvest, handle, and burn; and has a low-heat value. If all factors are counted, it will…

Compost key to sequestering carbon in the soil

(University of California – Davis) For their 19-year study, UC Davis scientists dug roughly 6 feet down to compare soil carbon changes in different cropping systems. They found that compost is a key to storing carbon, a strategy for offsetting CO2 emissions.
