What we can learn about resilience from Eucalyptus trees.

“This research (yet again) fits the hypothesis that life on Earth is well adapted to a wildly variable climate, probably because it happened all the time.  The researchers even looked to see if exposing trees to hot weather first would help adapt them to extreme heat, but found it didn’t matter. The trees ability to adapt was innate. They just coped.” click here

Polar Bears are Doing Just Fine, Thank You.

“The overwhelming conclusion from years of accumulated conversations with native populations about polar bears is that there is almost no connection between the long-term observations of polar bear ecology and the more recent claims that polar bears as a species are in grave danger due to climate change and thinning sea ice.

In fact, the long-term observations suggest that polar bear subpopulations are currently faring quite well, with 92% of  the subpopulations studied either remaining stable or growing in recent years.” click here

Sustainability is not Sustainable

Electric cars contribute nothing to climate protection?

“In a recent interview with the online FOCUS news magazine he raised a lot of eyebrows by stating that he thinks electric mobility is a “dangerous false path”, claiming that the electric car “does not solve a single environmental problem” and that it “contributes nothing to climate protection”.

Indra calls the claims that electric cars are CO2-free “absurd”. ” click here for the No Tricks Zone.

Exaggerated catastrophic climate change claims

The claims being made by Mr. Al Gore seem to becoming more and more extreme and less and less defensible. Indeed, there are already parts of the earth that are uninhabitable by humans without artificial measures.

“The former vice president urged scientists and health care providers to unite in efforts to combat the effects of climate change.

Among the most serious problems presented to conference attendees was the belief that the rising heat index could make parts of the world uninhabitable, Gore said.” click here

UN, Pope Francis Misinformed on Climate

Implementation of a treaty that was crafted  based on misinformation and deceit will not have a good outcome.

“Pope Francis urged national leaders on Monday to implement global environmental agreements without delay, a message that looked to be squarely aimed at U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.” click here
