  • McIlhinney: Local gas drilling study on hold - PhillyBurb 
  • Jennifer Francis, Professor, Rutgers University presents evidence that climate weirdness is connected to global warming.  VIDEO
    She provides an unprecedented number of sobering events - extreme records from heat, snow, tornadoes, and floods.

    Provides also historical  correlations with CO2 levels - and upward trend in temperatures; and how we know that humans are causing the climate effects.


  • On Being - Video Science and Imagination Feature:  "Uncovering the codes of reality"

    Physicist James Gates reveals why string theory stretches our imaginations about the nature of reality. Also, how failure makes us more complete, and imagination makes us more knowledgeable.
  • Crisp: Climate change reaches scary milestone -
    but no mainstream media attention paid to it.

    John M. Crisp teaches in the English Department at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas

    Atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide reached an average daily level of just over 400 parts per million

    For nearly a million years, the carbon dioxide level has fluctuated within a relatively narrow range, from around 180 parts per million during ice ages to 280 ppm during warmer periods.
  • Scientists Denying Human-Caused Climate Change Fade from Existence …
    Except in the Media

    Counting only those papers that expressed an opinion, the study found that 97.1% “endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.”

    ... public opinion polls indicate that about half of Americans incorrectly believe there is significant ongoing debate among scientists about the existence of human-caused global warming. That misperception in turn provides an excuse for people to deny warming altogether and oppose policies intended to save the biosphere."

  • Notable quotes on fracking by Dr. Anthony Ingraffea - Dwight C. Baum Professor of Engineering, Weiss Presidential Teaching Fellow at Cornell University and president of Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy, Inc.

    "... we have been told by the oil and gas industry that our homes, our schools, our hospitals, even if they are in zoned areas for residences, have to become part of their industry. Oil and gas law in most states trumps zoning. It permits the oil and gas industries to establish its industry next to where we live. We’re asked to participate inside their spaces. They are imposing on us the requirement to locate our homes, hospitals and schools inside their industrial space." Source: Jan 2013

    Letter to Governor Cuomo regarding cancer risks of hydraulic fracturing PDF

    (well-researched, evidence-based concerns)

    "Many of us devote scarce resources to the effort to research, communicate, and reduce environmental risks of cancer. It is incumbent on us to speak out about the potential for a profound increase in cancer risk in New York State by the permitting of hydraulic fracturing."
