Scientist Slams News Site That Used His Research To Imply Climate Change Is Fake

by EMILY ATKIN – Last week, a new, peer-reviewed paper from scientists at Germany’s Alfred Wegener Institute was published in the journal Nature Geoscience. The paper is important: for the first time, it shows that scientists can use incredibly old permafrost to find out what temperatures were like in Siberia thousands of years ago. By using this permafrost, the scientists found that temperatures in Siberia have been gradually rising for the past 7,000 years. Enter the climate denier media. After the findings were published, notorious climate denier Anthony Watts re-published portions of the Alfred Wegener Institute’s press release for the research on his site, Watts Up With That. It was then picked up by Michael Bastasch at the Daily Caller, who wrote that “solar radiation has been melting Siberian ice for 7,000 years,” evidence that “global warming is nothing new.” In other words, the Daily Caller is using the research...

Mysterious Siberian Crater Found at ‘End of the World’ May Portend Methane Climate Catastrophe

By FishOutofWater, Daily Kos – A mysterious crater almost the size of a football field discovered in a remote part of Siberia’s Yamal peninsula known as the “End of the World” may have profound implications about the stability of Arctic methane  and catastrophic climate change. The striking puncture in the earth is believed to be up to 80 metres wide but its depth is not estimated yet. A scientific team has been sent to investigate the hole and is due to arrive at the scene on Wednesday. The cause of its sudden appearance in Yamal – its name means the ‘E0nd of the World’ in the far north of Siberia – is not yet known, though one scientific claim is that global warming may be to blame. Russian experts have ruled out speculation that meteorite impact might have caused the crater. The crater was certainly not caused by a meteorite because it has no...
