Behavioral evolution of polar bears due to climate change

It seems there is now unequivocal evidence that behavior in polar bears is evolving due to environmental changes caused by global warming.

Water power the future?

Check out this video. 100 mile car trip uses only 4 ounces of water. Can't wait to the industry-backed PR spin for this one: “If we use water for our cars, oceans will be depleted and fish will die!”


China goes solar

The China Daily reported late last week that all new residential construction in the massive powerhouse city of Shenzhen must install solar powered water heating system. While we applaud this gesture to renewable energy, it is worth noting that there is an exemption for buildings over 12 storeys. For those who have been lucky enough to have visited this dynamic and vibrant city, you will quickly get my point, in that there are very few, if any, new buildings under 12 storeys!

Vegas Blue Men take on global warming

High tech research technique exposed

As you many of you know, we here at the DeSmogBlog have been following the Calgary, Canada – based super skeptic group, the Friends of Science, for quite some time now. What you might not have known is that we have been using extremely cutting-edge technology to do so.

So, for those who have not read the G&M piece and in the spirit of full disclosure, here it is: string, tape and paper.

That’s right, much like Senior Agent Jack Malone on the CBS hit series “Without a Trace,” when we are hot on the trail of those kidnapping the truth on climate change, we use the very same forensic techniques – we take a piece of string, tape it on the wall and put two pieces paper with writing on it and make the connection between science and oil. Now everyone can start their own blog just like ours and start outing the bad guys.
