The EPA said Thursday night that the spill happened on Tuesday, and officials are still attempting to determine how much and what metals were contained in the sludgy discharge, according to the Associated Press.

Geologically Warmed Ocean is Melting Arctic Sea Ice – Not Climate Change

Figure 1.) In the 12 months up to July 14, 2016, 43 earthquakes with a magnitude of 4 or higher on the Richter scale occurred along the Mid-Arctic Rift / Fault, mostly at a depth of 10 km (6.214 miles). (see here).

Above-average melting of the Arctic Sea Ice in the years 2007, 2012, and 2015 is here contended to be directly related to increased heat and chemically charged fluid flow from the 3,500-mile long seafloor Mid-Arctic Rift / Fault System and not atmospheric global warming.

EPA Withheld Key Info On Post-Spill Funding To Gold King Mine Culprit

gold_king_mine_2Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) officials improperly withheld information from The Daily Caller News Foundation confirming its reporting that the contractor responsible for the August 2015 Gold King Mine spill was awarded nearly $2.7 million not long after the disaster.

The EPA internally acknowledged the award and crafted a response to TheDCNF’s finding, according to emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, but the response was never sent to the news organization.

Trump Will Liberate America’s World Leading Energy Producers

trump_campaigningDonald Trump can become one of the greatest Presidents in American history, if he can lead adoption of just a few desperately needed changes in federal policies and law. Trump has already pledged to adopt these changes, while Hillary has pledged to oppose them. This is the fourth in a multi-part series on those desperately needed changes, this one focusing on deregulation to liberate America’s energy producers to lead the world in production of oil, natural gas, and coal.

Obama Energy Czar: Actually, Fracking Is Pretty Good For The Environment

frackingHydraulic fracturing, a process more commonly referred to as fracking, is actually good for the environment, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said at a field hearing in Seattle last week, according to the Washington Examiner.

“The increased production of oil and natural gas in the United States has, obviously, been a major story in terms of our economy, and also our environment,” said Moniz, who previously served as the head of the Physics department at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology, earned a doctorate degree in physics from Stanford University.

Jackson co-hosted the Clinton fundraiser with Apple CEO Tim Cook in the San Francisco Bay area, and tickets for the event reportedly cost between $2,700 and $50,000. Jackson currently serves as Apple’s environmental director, and is also on the board of the Clinton Foundation.

Study: Fed Supported Biofuels Actually INCREASE CO2 Emissions

biofuelsTaxpayer-supported biofuels emit more carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions than gasoline, according to a new study, challenging the benefits of mixing ethanol into the U.S. fuel supply.

“When it comes to the emissions that cause global warming, it turns out that biofuels are worse than gasoline,” Dr. John DeCicco of the University of Michigan and lead author of the study, said in a press release. “So the underpinnings of policies used to promote biofuels for reasons of climate have now been proven to be scientifically incorrect.”

New study confirms ‘solar activity has a direct impact on Earth’s cloud cover’ important to climate change

sunspot chartA new study confirms “solar variations affect the abundance of clouds in our atmosphere,” a solar amplification mechanism which is the basis of Svensmark’s theory of cosmo-climatology. 

The solar eruptions are known to shield Earth’s atmosphere from cosmic rays. However the new study, published in Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, shows that the global cloud cover is simultaneously reduced, supporting the idea that cosmic rays are important for cloud formation. The eruptions cause a reduction in cloud fraction of about 2 percent corresponding to roughly a billion tonnes of liquid water disappearing from the atmosphere.

Weather Channel Founder Warns Gore May ‘Win’ Climate Debate in 2016 – Gore May ‘Declare Victory’

al_gore_manbearpigWeather Channel Founder John Coleman, a meteorologist for over six decades, is warning that Al Gore may win the decades long “global warming” debate if the victor of the 2016 Presidential election further cements the UN Paris climate agreement and EPA regulations on carbon dioxide.

“This election may be a ‘tipping point’ in the climate debate,” Coleman declared in an interview with Climate Depot.
