Harper Unites French and English Canada - Against Harper

What do separatist leader Gilles Duceppe and Newfoundland Conservative Premier Danny Williams have in common? They both think Harper is unqualified to be Prime Minster due to his pitiful record on climate change.

It’s not often that a prominent Newfoundlander and a Quebec separatist have much to agree on, but it’s part of a growing movement within Canada to vote for the environment by voting against Harper.

Warmer Surface Waters Trigger More Destructive Hurricanes

While there is no apparent connection between warming and an increase in the number of hurricanes, there is a growing literature – including some half-dozen peer-reviewed studies – which find that warmer surface waters generate more powerful and destructive hurricanes.

Polar Bear Army Deployed for Canadian Election

With the Canadian federal election off to the races, DeSmogBlog has deployed an army of polar bears across Canada that will be working to raise the profile of climate change issues, especially around the environmental impacts of Alberta's oil sands operations.

The campaign is called the Arctic Front, and many of our regular readers will remember that we began this campaign during the Alberta provincial election earlier this year. Since then we have expanded our capabilities and now have polar bears stationed across the country, ready to get out the message at town hall forums,debates, rallies and other events.

No wonder the Harper government is against a carbon tax

After watching a video clip of Canada's Environment Minister trying to explain the ins-and-outs of a carbon tax policy, it is clear now why Harper government is so vehemently against a carbon tax policy in Canada - they don't know what it is.

Check out NASA's new science blog

When it comes to climate science, its usually best to talk to climate scientists. And a new blog set up by NASA at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a welcomed voice in the social media arena.

While climate isn't the only focus of the new JPL blog, so far there has been a pretty heavy focus on the issue. So grab the JPL blog's RSS feed and keep up-to-date on the latest in climate change science through the eyes of an actual climate scientist.

Nature to Palin: "I'm Hotter Than You!"

Researchers confirm that surface temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere were warmer over the last 10 years than any time during the last 1300 years, and, if the climate scientists include the somewhat controversial data derived from tree-ring records, the warming is anomalous for at least 1700 years.

Palin denies climate change realities on first day as McCain's running mate

What are the ramifications of a US Vice President that is willing to shrug off the scientific realities of global warming?

Guess we'll find out if John McCain takes the White House. In an interview with Newsmax today, McCain's vice-presidential running mate Sarah Palin stated that:

“A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.

Arctic Ice melt media misinformation retracted

The Register reporter Steve Goddard is admitting today that his article last week on melting Arctic Sea Ice (Arctic ice refuses to melt as ordered) is incorrect.

Too bad the damage has already been done. 

In his article, Goddard claimed that National Snow and Ice Data Center plot of Arctic Sea Ice Extent was wrong and that,

“The Arctic did not experience the meltdowns forecast by NSIDC and the Norwegian Polar Year Secretariat. It didn't even come close. Additionally, some current graphs and press releases from NSIDC seem less than conservative. There appears to be a consistent pattern of overstatement related to Arctic ice loss.”
