At last, a mainstream documentary about “the environment” that looks at real causes instead of just blathering about “climate change”. Now that the deserts are spreading into Europe, maybe we will see some of the tax money going to research that will lead to change, rather than just UN-boosting carbon taxes. But don’t hold your […]

Sumerian Civilization Ended by Drought?

A 200-year-long drought 4,200 years ago may have killed off the ancient Sumerian civilization, according to Matt Konfirst, a geologist at the Byrd Polar Research Center Thanks largely to the mainstream obsession with ‘climate change’, research into historical disasters that focuses on climate is getting more funding.

Trees Make Rain V – Uncovering the tricks of nature’s ice-seeding bacteria

Like the Marvel Comics superhero Iceman, some bacteria have harnessed frozen water as a weapon. Species such as Pseudomonas syringae have special proteins embedded in their outer membranes that help ice crystals form, and they use them to trigger frost formation at warmer than normal temperatures on plants, later invading through the damaged tissue. When […]

Trees Make Rain IV – Biotic Pump

If you cut your forest, the winds will not blow from the ocean and will not bring you rain. Natural forests draw atmospheric moisture inland from the ocean in a positive feedback loop. This builds up precipitation inland, compensating for water lost through river flow and ultimately increasing river runoff due to the sustained low-pressure […]
