"Another epic blizzard is bearing down on New England. There is a “big part” played by “human-induced climate change,” especially warming-fueled ocean temperatures, according to Dr. Kevin Trenberth, former head of the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
I asked Dr. Trenberth to comment on the role climate change has on this latest storm, which is forecast to set records. He explained:
The number 1 cause of this is that it is winter. In winter it is cold over the continent. But it is warm over the oceans and the contrast between the cold continent and the warm Gulf Stream and surrounding waters is increasing. At present sea surface temperatures are more the 2F above normal over huge expanses (1000 miles) off the east coast and water vapor in the atmosphere is about 10% higher as a result. About half of this can be attributed to climate change." http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/01/26/3615330/blizzards-climate-scientists/
Wally Broecker aka Dr. Wallace Broecker
I actually had the honor of spending time with Wally Broecker during a recent visit to Tucson. He was captivating-- the group he spoke with didn't want him to stop. The Earth Institute at Columbia University describes him best. "To his colleagues, peers and admirers he is a genius and a pioneer, the Grandfather of Climate Science. And to his countless friends - most of whom also happen to be colleagues, peers and admirers - he is simply Wally. Broecker is arguably one of the world's greatest living geoscientists. For more than half a century, his major research interest has been the ocean's role in climate change. He was among the pioneers in radiocarbon and isotope dating - the quintessential processes for creating maps of the Earth's past climate fluctuations since as early as the Pleistocene period. He was also the first person ever to recognize the Ocean Conveyor Belt (which he named), arguably the most important discovery in the history of oceanography and its critical relation to climate." Oh my. This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
The Climate Science Article Greenpeace Doesn't Want You to Read: An Interview with Willie Soon
On a special Earth Day episode, guest hosts Keith Lockitch and Amanda Maxham will interview climate scientist Willie Soon about his recent scientific paper challenging IPCC warming estimates. Dr. Soon has been the target of a witch-hunt orchestrated by Greenpeace over false allegations of failure to disclose conflicts of interest. Could it be that Greenpeace is trying to distract attention from the paper’s important scientific conclusions?
Keith and Amanda will give a hearty Earth Day “thank you” to “the nearest, grimiest, sootiest smokestacks” they can find. Plus, they plan to eat food made from GMOs, live on the air. Are they putting their lives at risk? Tune in to find out what happens.
We are living in the days when there’s no shortage of war. The climate of fear around the world is at a fever pitch. In order to deal with this, it’s always good to go back to the Word of God. Jesus prophesied about days like this and what it would mean when these things would get more frequent. None of these recent events are by accident, so if we look at them in a spiritual light, we’ll get a better understanding. Tonight we’ll bring home a few points, and give some clear scriptures for you to take in. The harvest is ripe on planet earth, and the Devil’s time is short. Are you looking up to heaven, or living for this world? Find out which side you need to be on, tonight with Chris and Rory.
Canada and its environment. Its air, water, lands, coastlines and glaciers. The last ten years is not a very positive recent past. The Harper Government withdrew from the Kyoto Accord, did absolutely nothing at Copenhagen and stayed on message that climate change was fake. A ruse by enviroterrorists to deny "Canadians" the "benefits" of a resource economy on steroids and wearing a blindfold. A decade later and Canada is the poster boy for failure in environmental stewardship.
COP21 in Paris promises to be different. The increase in major emitter participation in real planning has never been higher. There have never been so many public policies from nations on climate before. Have we heard this before? Well, yes and no. Despite the new level of urgency and co-operation, there will also be a massive corporate presence at the tables. How can one deny the inevitable industry being built to deal with this mess. And it won't be cheap even if it were.
Prime Minister Trudeau will be joined by Premiers, Environment Ministers and scientists in Paris. A united front for action is the narrative. Alberta has led the way domestically with introduction of "Carbon Plan". Astroturf lobbies and sycophantic politicians warn of the economy disappearing. Yet the industry says they can work with it and it is reasonable on initial appearance. Cue the CPC end of days fundraising videos. Apparently, change is still evil.
Some regions are much better equipped for the shift from carbon to renewables than others and that's just domestically. Globally it's a much more visible issue. This is where our old friend Politics comes in. Recent events have basically outlawed protests of any kind in Paris. The efforts will now be dispersed around the world but may be even stronger given the access by all to be heard.
Lots to look at in two hours, but we will do our best and you are invited.

The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the posibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathmatic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools andhow we can enrich youth with oppurtunities to advance within STEM.
Welcome to The Mad Scientist's Sports Lab, the 2015 Online Media Award Winning Podcast by What A Fan, hosted by "The Mad Scientist of Sports" Nick Ficorelli and "The Nutty Professor" Andrew Gluchov. This is not the average everyday sports show they are bringing to the air waves. "The Mad Scientist" has created his own personal sports lab, and you, the audience, as well as many of his special guests, will be his test subjects. He will throw theories out, and you never know where they will be coming from. He will keep everyone guessing, and he will open his lab to any and all comers. Be prepared for "mad science" sports talk at its best.
This week, "The Mad Scientist" will be going solo, as "The Nutty Professor" is taking a one-week sabbatical to concoct some of his own experiments, but fear not, the lab's test subjects will be ready!! At 10pm, once again, we have Allie's Fantasy Alley at10pm with Allie Fonatan to talk Week 11. At 1030pm we will have Tony Cincotta of RotoExperts and Walton Spurlin ofFantasy Sharks, and at 11pm, we have Marcus Katkin of Blindside Football, to continue the ongoing debate regarding Daily Fantasy Sports (especially in light of the NY rulings against DraftKings and FanDuel this week), and lastly, we welcome Mike Kamp of RPM Services LLC and Pixographs, and Robyn Vandenburg of Bump N Run, to talk about what Pixographs is about, and sprinkle in a little NASCAR as we enter the final race at Homestead in Miami to determine the 2015 Sprint Cup Champion.
The beacons are lit, the experiments are on the board, and the test subjects are at the ready. The Mad Scientist's Sports Lab is officially open for business.
