Living the Greed

Caring next to nothing for anyone else just to make it to the top
Cheating, lying and back-stabbing so their momentum can’t be stopped
Earning the green with the bar set high so more and more can be acquired… 124 more words

Cowash Night 7/29/2015 and the Greenhouse Effect

Hey guys! Normally my cowash day is Thursday but last night after work I just felt the need to do it then. I suffer from extremely itchy, dry scalp all the time so it was driving me insane. 597 more words

June 2015's Global Average Temperature Highest in 136 Year Record, Breaking Previous Record High Temperature Record of June 2014


The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for June 2015 was the highest for June in the 136-year period of record, at 0.88°C (1.58°F) above the 20th century average of 15.5°C (59.9°F), surpassing the previous record set just one year ago by 0.12°C (0.22°F). 433 more words

The next mass extinction

It had to come. After a rather cold spring/summer where we, at least in the southwestern part of Norway, have had periods of what can only be described as autumn storms, I have heard the old argument that any mention of rising temperature is a conspiracy. 771 more words

Americans Are Driving and Flying at Unprecedented Levels, Adding to the Growing Accumulation of Greenhouse Gases that are Fueling Global Warming


Americans are driving more than ever before, adding to the growing amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere each time they get behind the wheel and start up the ignition. 180 more words

New research on atmospheric radiative transfer

What is the adiabatic lapse rate of air?


That’s the question posed by Scottish Sceptic here.

When explaining the greenhouse warming effect, I’ve avoided going into the cause of the adiabatic temperature change of the atmosphere as we get higher and instead used a hand waving argument that expanding air is cooler which has been enough to explain the necessary temperature gradient up through the atmosphere ( 747 more words
