Do We Really Have A Decade Left To Solve Climate Change?

Wise alecks on social media noted with amusement how Beto O’Rourke recently claimed humans had only ten years to act on climate change, thus one-upping Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who had previously gone out on a limb by putting the deadline at twelve years.

Snark aside, it’s important to point out that the “consensus science” as codified, for example, in the periodic reports from the United Nations do not support such a cliff-hanger mentality at all.

Snow in Spring? California Storm Cheers Skiing Fans

It's late spring, but there's fresh powder in the Sierra Nevada as a winter-like storm moves through California.

California braces for feet of snow from storms; 'significant severe weather event' to impact Plains

It may be May, but Spring has not quite sprung in the Golden State.

Parts of California still resemble a scene out of winter, with a series of storms bringing several feet of snow to mountain areas, ahead of a "significant" severe weather threat across the nation's midsection.

The National Weather Service said that a series of Pacific storms are bringing heavy rain, mountain snow, and gusty winds across the West. A winter storm warning was issued Wednesday night that will run through Friday morning for the southern Sierra Nevada.

Bill Nye Brings Out the F-Bombs and a Blowtorch to Talk Climate Change

Science popularizer Bill Nye told viewers of a popular late-night show that Earth is "on [expletive] fire" while lighting a globe with a blowtorch.

During his appearance on HBO's "Last Week Tonight With John Oliver" on Sunday (May 12), Nye used frank language to talk to millennials about the impacts of global warming on Earth. (Nye's comments are heavily edited here for language; viewer discretion is advised if you watch the video.)

"By the end of this century, if temperatures keep rising, the average temperature on Earth could go up another 4 to 8 degrees," Nye said to Oliver. (Nye was referring to degrees Celsius; the equivalent change in Fahrenheit is roughly 7 to 14 degrees). "What I'm saying is, the planet's on [expletive] fire."

Europe Electroglides have Passed Climate Alarmism’s Point of No Return

Europe’s petroleum phase-out planners have long been arch-reifiers of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming hypothesis. Their enlistment of the European auto industry may prove a coup de grace. Historians may pick 2019 as the year European climate alarmism passed a point of no return.

During the 1970s oil crisis European governments devised stratagems to reduce oil consumption. These involved phasing-out oil-fueled electrical generation; improving public transit; and imposing vehicle fuel efficiency standards. Much hope was placed in bio-fueled, and hydrogen-fueled, vehicles; …in electric vehicles (EVs), not so much.

US weather warning: WINTER returns in May bringing SNOW and sub zero temperatures

The National Weather Service (NWS) said this could be made worse with additional rain forecast.

The NWS added: “Plan on slippery and snow-covered roads as elevation increases, especially above 1,500 feet.”

The service also posted a weather warning on their Twitter page.

Highlighting the areas of concern, they said: “We have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the shaded areas. 1 to 3 inches expected even in the valleys.

“As best as we can tell, this is the first winter weather product that we have issued in May since 2002.”

Jakobshavn Isbrae: Mighty Greenland glacier slams on brakes

European satellites have detailed the abrupt change in behaviour of one of Greenland's most important glaciers.

In the 2000s, Jakobshavn Isbrae was the fastest flowing ice stream on the island, travelling at 17km a year.

As it sped to the ocean, its front end also retreated and thinned, dropping in height by as much as 20m year.

But now it's all change. Jakobshavn is travelling much more slowly, and its trunk has even begun to thicken and lengthen.

"It's a complete reversal in behaviour and it wasn't predicted," said Dr Anna Hogg from Leeds University and the UK Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM).

Bill Nye says "the planet's on f****ing fire" and we need to "grow the f*** up"

Bill Nye deviated from his kid-friendly "Science Guy" persona on Sunday night to help John Oliver talk about the severity of climate change. Nye proved he's not always the mild-mannered nerd millennials grew up with when he joined Oliver during his episode detailing carbon pricing and the Green New Deal.

Oliver first outlined the case for the Green New Deal, the environment and jobs proposal introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "To its eternal credit, the Green New Deal has succeeded in getting people talking, but that won't mean anything unless that talk turns into action," Oliver said.

"We're going to need a lot of different policies working tandem, and we have to take action right now," the comedian said, towards the end of the segment. "But you don't have to just take that from me. Instead, I'm happy to say Bill Nye has actually agreed to drive the urgency home at this point by actually doing one of his enjoyable, lighthearted demonstrations."

Climate Change is Making Trees Grow Faster

A new study found that Dahurian larch in China's northern forests grew more from 2005 to 2014 than in the previous 40 years.

The study that looked at growth rings also found that the oldest trees had the biggest growth spurts. Trees older than 400 years grew 80 percent more rapidly in those 10 years than in the past 300 years.

In the meantime, trees between 250 and 300 years old grew 35 percent more during that time period, while trees younger than 250 years grew between 11 and 13 percent more.

Yes, it is May and snow fell on some parts of Massachusetts on Mother’s Day

Reports of snow falling on some parts of Massachusetts wasn’t a joke, after all, it is Mother’s Day and not April Fools’ Day.

The National Weather Service in Albany said there were reports of snowfall in the southern and central Berkshires. There were also reports of sleet and snow mixing with rain in the northern Litchfield Hills.

Slick spots on the Massachusetts Turnpike forced authorities to reduce the speed limit on the highway in the area. There was sleet in the Otis to Russell areas, the National Weather Service said. There were some crashes on the Mass. Pike due to the weather.

AOC: Believing The Earth Will End in 12 Years Means You’re Dumb As A ‘Sea Sponge’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed Sunday that people who believe the suggestion that the world will end in 12 years have the intelligence of a “sea sponge,” even though Ocasio-Cortez made that very claim in January.

Ocasio-Cortez suggested that Republicans too often mischaracterize her dry humor and “fact check” her jokes, claiming that they take them too literally.

"Until you do it, I'm the boss," said Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the socialist congresswoman from the Bronx, responding to critics of her Green New Deal in February. Later that night, the freshman congresswoman doubled down on her comment, tweeting that people who "don't like the #GreenNewDeal" should "come up with your own ambitious, on-scale proposal to address the global climate crisis. Until then, we're in charge—and you're just shouting from the cheap seats."

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres challenges NZ Government to tax pollution

The head of the UN, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, has challenged the Government to slap a tax on pollution by shifting taxes "from salaries to carbon".

Speaking at a breakfast with high school leaders in Auckland, Guterres said he wanted to convey a message.

"Shift taxes from salaries, to carbon. We must tax pollution, not people," he said.

This means reducing income tax as a tax on carbon is applied, Guterres said.

"We need to make sure that when we adopt measures that increase costs, that we reduce costs in other aspects of the economy."

Hollywood director James Cameron's grim warning for New Zealand

Global demand for New Zealand's meat and dairy products is under threat as the world responds to climate change by eating more and more plant-based protein, Hollywood filmmaker James Cameron told the government's Just Transitions conference in New Plymouth.

Now based in New Zealand and farming in the Wairarapa, the director of such blockbuster movies as Titanic and Avatar painted an even bleaker picture for the world if it fails to deal with climate change, which could see hundreds of millions of people displaced by rising sea levels and changing weather patterns.

Ravers get hypothermia at snow-hit French techno festival

Around 30 people were treated for hypothermia at an outdoor techno music festival in France after unexpected snowfall left many ravers sheltering under survival blankets distributed by the Red Cross.

Around 10,000 people attended the unauthorised Teknival 2019 festival in the central Creuse region at the weekend, where temperatures dropped to -3 degrees Celsius (27 degrees fahrenheit) overnight on Saturday to Sunday.

Around 30 people were treated for hypothermia at the scene and two were taken to hospital, local officials told AFP, with the several centimetres (inches) of snow turning the festival camping experience into an endurance test.

The Reason Renewables Can't Power Modern Civilization Is Because They Were Never Meant To

Over the last decade, journalists have held up Germany’s renewables energy transition, the Energiewende, as an environmental model for the world.

“Many poor countries, once intent on building coal-fired power plants to bring electricity to their people, are discussing whether they might leapfrog the fossil age and build clean grids from the outset,” thanks to the Energiewende, wrote a New York Times reporter in 2014.

With Germany as inspiration, the United Nations and World Bank poured billions into renewables like wind, solar, and hydro in developing nations like Kenya.

But then, last year, Germany was forced to acknowledge that it had to delay its phase-out of coal, and would not meet its 2020 greenhouse gas reduction commitments. It announced plans to bulldoze an ancient church and forest in order to get at the coal underneath it.

Emma Thompson the first-class hypocrite! Actress is pictured dining on champagne and beef in £18,000 personal booth on carbon-spewing BA plane jetting to New York days after lecturing us all to stop flying

Left-wing actress Dame Emma Thompson was branded a ‘first-class hypocrite’ last night after jetting to New York just days after backing climate protests that brought chaos to London.

The Jeremy Corbyn supporter took her personal booth in the luxury cabin of a British Airways flight from Heathrow to JFK on Friday morning after earlier demanding: ‘We should all fly less.’

First-class BA flights to New York cost up to £18,000 and generate nearly two tons of carbon dioxide – the main driver of climate change – for each passenger in the elite cabin.

Onlookers claim the multi-millionaire activist also drank Laurent-Perrier champagne and dined on beef carpaccio – even though cattle farming is also a major contributor to greenhouse gasses.

It's May and it's still snowing in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

While southeast Michigan is battling floods on the first day of May, Michigan's Upper Peninsula is facing a different weather dilemma — snow.

About 3-4 inches of snow fell as of Wednesday morning, said Matt Zika, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Marquette office. Zika said the preliminary snow accumulation has already broken a 1.2-inch daily snowfall record set on May 1, 2005.

But it does not stop there. Zika said snow continues to fall and 6-7 inches is predicted by the end of the day into Thursday.

Drivers should expect low visibility and slippery areas on roads. In addition, the temperature is in the mid-30s, compared with a typical 50-degree weather at the beginning of May.

Colorado weather: Denver’s biggest late-season snows on record

Snow is the forecast for Denver for Monday. Sure, snow in the last few days of April and early May may feel a bit strange — our average last snow is on April 27th, after all — but it’s certainly far from unheard of.

Of course, our fair city is no stranger to getting walloped by a late-season snow or two, but there have been several large events over the years. Here’s a look at three standout ones:

Hundreds of flights canceled in Chicago as late-April snow falls from Iowa to Michigan

Despite the calendar reading late April, snow is whitening a narrow swath of the north-central United States. This includes in Chicago, where measurable snow has fallen this late in the season for the first time since 1989.

Old Man Winter still has a few tricks up his sleeve and will continue to spread snow from northeast Illinois to southern Michigan into Sunday morning.

Heavy snow, blizzard conditions affecting parts of United States, challenging records

Heavy snow and gusty winds are affecting parts of the northern Rockies, northern Plains, and upper Midwest this weekend with blizzard conditions expected in portions of Montana. Accumulating snow is expected as far south as Chicago. Elsewhere, breezy and cooler conditions are forecast for much of the East.

A shortwave impulse tracking across the central plains will sustain a surface low across the Midwest states on Saturday, April 27, 2019, NWS forecaster Hamrick noted.

The majority of the precipitation with this event is expected north of the surface low track from South Dakota to southern Michigan.

BBC and Attenborough Accused of Fake News Misinformation on ‘Climate Change: The Facts’

As wags have quipped, the programme presented by Sir David Attenborough was so riddled with errors it really should have been called Climate: Change The Facts.

Now the GWPF has written to the BBC Complaints department listing just a few of them. The letter can be read here.

According to the GPWF, the programme “went far beyond its remit to present the facts about climate change, instead broadcasting a highly politicised manifesto in favour of renewable energy and unjustified alarm.”

NASA declares carbon dioxide is GREENING the Earth… reveals how Green New Death is a DEATH cult that would collapse global ecology

The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains:

We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend…

In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists.

Late-April snow to blanket 1,200-mile swath from Montana to Michigan

A late-April storm will put down accumulating snow along a 1,200-mile swath of the north-central United States this weekend with slippery travel possible in cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee and Detroit.

Old Man Winter still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is poised to spread snow from parts of Montana through portions of the Dakotas, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan as the weekend progresses.

New York's "Green New Deal" To Phase Out Red Meat By 50%

New York City's recently-approved "Green New Deal" (not to be confused with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's environmental wish-list) will slash the amount of red meat served in municipally-run facilities by half in order to combat climate change, according to Breitbart's Josh Caplan.

The $14 billion "Green New Deal" will phase out purchases of processed meats in city-run schools, hospitals and correctional facilities by 2040, amid an overall cut in purchases of 50 percent. New York would be the first city in the world to adopt such a policy, and was announced after New York Schools adopted "Meatless Monday" in an effort to encourage the consumption of less meat.

Study: Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal Would Have ‘No Effect’ on Earth’s Climate

A new study published by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) disputes the idea that the Green New Deal would have any effect on the environment, concluding that the impact on the Earth’s climate would be minimal at best.

The environmental pipe dream brought to you by the Democrat party’s rising socialist would abolish fossil fuels, eliminate millions of jobs, cost households $600,000 annually at an overall price tag of $93 trillion, and do NOTHING to stem the tide of climate change.

“Notwithstanding the assertions from GND [Green New Deal] proponents that it is an essential policy to confront purportedly adverse climate phenomena,” the report reads, “the future temperature impacts of the zero-emissions objective would be barely distinguishable from zero.”

Piers Corbyn, 72, a climate change denier who runs forecasting firm WeatherAction, said the 16-year-old who is visiting Britain from her native Sweden is 'wrong'.

Reposting a BBC News article titled 'Teen tells UK politicians 'listen to climate scientists', he tweeted: 'Listening to an ignorant brainwashed child is deranged.

Cold weather to grip WORLD as solar minimum to DEEPEN, NASA says

In 2019, the Sun has been without sunspots for 59 percent of days - a sign that the solar minimum has arrived. The Sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum. During a solar maximum, the Sun gives off more heat and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in magnetic waves.

Fewer magnetic waves equates to the Sun being slightly cooler, and experts are expecting the solar minimum to deepen even further before it gets warmer.

This could mean a slight temperature drop around the planet.

Cosmic forecasting site Space Weather said: “An international panel of researchers led by NASA and NOAA has released a new prediction for the solar cycle: The current solar minimum is going to deepen, potentially reaching a century-class low in the next year or so."

The Green New Deal Will Hit the Poor With Higher Energy Costs

The Green New Deal's goal is to move America to zero carbon emissions in 10 years.

"That's a goal you could only imagine possible if you have no idea how energy is produced," James Meigs, former editor of Popular Mechanics magazine, says in my latest video.

"Renewable is so inconsistent," he adds. "You can't just put in wind turbines and solar panels. You have to build all this infrastructure to connect them with energy consumers."

Because wind doesn't always blow and the sun doesn't always shine, "renewable" energy requires many more transmission lines, and bigger batteries.

Electric Car-Owners Shocked: New Study Confirms EVs Considerably Worse For Climate Than Diesel Cars

The Brussel Times reports that a new German study exposes how electric vehicles will hardly decrease CO2 emissions in Europe over the coming years, as the introduction of electric vehicles won't lead to a reduction in CO2 emissions from highway traffic.

According to the study directed by Christoph Buchal of the University of Cologne, published by the Ifo Institute in Munich last week, electric vehicles have "significantly higher CO2 emissions than diesel cars." That is due to the significant amount of energy used in the mining and processing of lithium, cobalt, and manganese, which are critical raw materials for the production of electric car

Climate Activism: An Ideology in Search of a Justification

In the abstract, peak-oil theory simply makes a series of mathematical claims about the long-term course of a finite or nonrenewable resource’s uses. In the hands of environmentalist activists, it became an instant cause for alarm. Oil’s nonrenewable nature meant that a resource-depletion event was imminent and that the failure to aggressively adopt “clean” fuel alternatives would lead to a catastrophic collapse of the global energy sector and thus the global economy.

These apocalyptic claims were commonplace at the time of the first Earth Day event in 1970, when environmentalists confidently predicted a complete exhaustion of the world’s oil supply by the year 2000. In subsequent years the environmentalist movement en masse adopted the logic of the famously failed Malthusian doomsayer Paul Ehrlich to suggest an imminent death spiral in the oil-based-energy market, setting a deadline for the global conversion away from fossil fuels.

David Attenborough’s BBC show would better have been called “Climate: Change The Facts”

… If you are going to present a film called Climate Change: the Facts the very least you should be doing is, well, presenting the facts. Well here they are, in two of the areas which made up such a hefty part of the film: wildfires and hurricanes. Are wildfires increasing? They are according to Attenborough. One of the scientists who takes part in the programme, Professor Michael Mann of Penn State University, goes as far as to say there has been a “tripling in the extent of wildfires in the Western US”. He is not specific about his evidence for this claim, nor said over what timeframe wildfires are supposed to have trebled, but it is not a fair assessment of the data collected by the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA). This shows no upwards trend in the number of wildfires in the US over the past 30 years.

But then again, go back further, to the 1920s, and you see that both the number of US wildfires and acreage burned in them has plummeted.

PHOTOS: ‘Game of Thrones’ fans, snow artists make the most of unexpected snowfall

Many people across Chicagoland likely did a double-take when they looked out the window Sunday and saw snow falling, in some instances at two inches an hour, at the start of the third week of April.

For fans of the HBO show “Game of Thrones,” the snow seemed perfectly timed to coincide with the debut of its much-anticipated final season Sunday night. In posts to social media, many asked if the snow was a publicity stunt based on the show’s slogan that “Winter is here.”

New CO2 Science: From Climate Demon to Saint

Published on April 8, 2019

The new millenium is seeing revolutionary change in our understanding of carbon dioxide (CO2). Once the demon global warming gas, scientists are increasingly accepting they got that wrong. We examine some of the astonishing developments.

Robin Wylie, is a doctoral candidate in volcanology, at University College London. Like other experts in this field he will shock you with a surprising new fact. Planet Earth is a heavy smoker. The true extent of its habit, though, has only recently begun to surface.

Until around the start of this new century, the academic consensus was that volcanic output of carbon dioxide from erupting volcanoes was tiny. However, the science is now revealing a hidden side to our leaking planet.

In 1992, it was thought that volcanic degassing released something like 100 million tons of CO2 each year. Around the turn of the millennium, this figure was getting closer to 200 million tons.

Snow shock: Heavy snow about to descend on parts of Minnesota

Minnesota's spring interlude gives way to a powerful snowstorm, with possible depths of a foot or more in parts of the state. The storm is expected to begin Wednesday night, with heavier snow on Thursday. Already Delta and Sun Country Airlines have issued waivers for customers to reschedule flights without having to pay fees.

The largest April snowstorm on record in the Twin Cities happened just last year when 15.8 inches fell over three days in mid-April. According to the National Weather Service, Minnesota can typically see around 3 inches of snow in April.

Winter Storm Wesley Impacts: Power Outages, Schools Closed, Flights Canceled, Interstates Shut Down

Winter Storm Wesley continued to cause trouble Thursday morning with schools closed or delayed for hours, power outages and hundreds of flight cancellations.

South Dakota's Gov. Kristi Noem ordered that state government offices be closed in 54 counties because of the weather. Ellsworth Air Force Base, 10 miles northeast of Rapid City, was closed to all but essential personnel.

More than 85,000 customers were without power in South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa as of 12:30 p.m. EDT Thursday, according to poweroutages.us. Ice was causing much of the problems in Minnesota. Jackson County in Minnesota reported more than 100 power poles had been knocked down.

U.S. hit with two billion-dollar disasters so far in 2019

The so-called bomb cyclone that brought heavy snow, blizzard conditions and major flooding to the Midwest in March landed with a resounding meteorological “ka-boom!” and became one of two billion-dollar weather and climate disasters this year.

The other was a severe storm that struck the Northeast, Southeast and Ohio Valley in late February.

And it’s only April.

'Bomb cyclone' hammers Plains and Midwest with blizzard conditions and 18 inches of snow, cancelling hundreds of flights and cutting power for 25,000

A storm system known as a 'bomb cyclone' is slowly churning through the US interior for the second time in a month, unleashing a blizzard in parts of the Midwest while creating hazardous fire conditions farther south.

By Thursday, as much as 18 inches of snow had fallen in parts of South Dakota, where Governor Kristi Noem closed state offices for a second day, while heavy snow and strong winds made travel conditions treacherous.

Just days after Tuesday's high of 78 degrees in Denver, whiteout conditions were reported in western Nebraska, where the Department of Transportation closed several highways Thursday morning. Winds briefly reached 107 mph in Pueblo West, Colorado due to a 'gustnado.'

Winter Storm Wesley, the Latest Bomb Cyclone, Prompts Blizzard Warnings in the Plains and Upper Midwest

Blizzard warnings have been issued for parts of six states in the Plains and upper Midwest as Winter Storm Wesley takes aim at those regions with heavy snow and high winds, contributing to dangerous travel conditions and likely shutting down highways.

Wesley has strengthened sufficiently to meet criteria as a "bomb cyclone", according to NOAA Weather Prediction Center senior forecaster David Roth. According to Weather Underground meteorologist Bob Henson, a storm doesn't have to deepen by a full 24 millibars in 24 hours if it's located south of 60 degrees North latitude, since these type of nontropical low-pressure systems tend to be weaker at lower latitudes. The original 1980 study that coined the term "bomb", therefore, suggested adjusting the more common definition by latitude.

Snow, rain sweeping across northcentral Montana

A slow-moving storm system was expected to bring significant rain and snow to northcentral Montana Tuesday and Wednesday prompting flooding concerns.

Steady rain already was falling across the region late Tuesday morning, with snow reported at higher elevations.

"This storm is developing right now as we speak," said Jim Brusda, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Great Falls.

The area of low pressure developing in Montana will move into the Midwest and produce blizzards from Nebraska to Minnesota, Brusda said.

On Tuesday morning, the heaviest precipitation in the Great Falls area was just east of the city.

Nolte: Scientists Prove Man-Made Global Warming Is a Hoax

The far-left ThinkProgress reports that scientists have finally proven that the theory of man-made Global Warming is a total hoax.
Of course, no one will admit it, but that is exactly what has happened.

A new scientific study shows has revealed the following:

Current CO2 levels of 410 parts per million (ppm) were last seen on Earth three million years ago, according to the most detailed reconstruction of the Earth’s climate by researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and published in Science Advances.

Yes, you read that correctly, three million — million — years ago CO2 levels on Earth were the same as they are today, but there is one major difference between three million years ago and today…

Weekend warmth is over; spring snow returns today

The weekend warmth is long gone. Temperatures hit the low 60s in parts of southern Maine both Saturday and Sunday, but snowflakes will be flying statewide today.

Precipitation may start as rain, but the air will be cooling as heavier precipitation moves in. That means rain early this morning should switch to snow. The morning commute will be snowy in almost all of western and central Maine.

Bill Clinton Honoree Thrown In Jail Over "Biggest Clean Energy Scam In American History"

One of three scam artists behind a $54 million ponzi scheme was sentenced to prison for her role in the biggest 'green energy' scams in US history, according to NBC New York.

35-year-old Amanda Knorr of Hellertown, Pennsylvania received just 30 months in federal prison for a ponzi scheme involving her 2005 startup, Mantria, in which "many people lost their life savings," according to assistant US Attorney Robert Livermore following Knorr's sentencing.

Knorr co-founded a company called Mantria Corp., which with the help of a slick-talking Colorado "wealth advisor" raised millions for a supposed clean energy product called "biochar."

Knorr and fellow Mantria co-founder Troy Wragg both graduated in 2005 from Temple University and within four years had raised $54 million from hundreds of investors. Most of the investors were wooed through seminars run by Wayde McKelvey, of Colorado.

Iran floods: New alerts issued as heavy rains continue

Iranian authorities have issued new emergency alerts and travel advisories as heavy rain and snowfall continue to cause flooding and disruptions in most parts of the country.

Morteza Salimi, the head of the Relief and Rescue Organization of the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS), said Monday morning that floods have affected at least 23 of the country’s 31 provinces since heavy downpours began on March 19.

Estimates by government agencies suggest that the floods have taken the lives of at least 42 people and destroyed over 25,000 homes around the country.

Major floods have been reported in the provinces of Golestan, Mazandaran, Gilan, Kordestan, Fars, Northern Khorasan, Kermanshah, Khouzestan, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad as well as Sistan and Baluchestan.

It was reported on Monday morning that fresh floods are expected in at least nine provinces.

Duke University to Pay $112.5 Million for Faking Scientific Research Data

Duke University has agreed to pay $112.5 million to the US government for scientific research misconduct, the Department of Justice announced in a press release on Monday. The fine comes as a result of the university falsifying research on federal grants.

The Department of Justice lays out the background and extent of the fraud. Duke received millions of dollars from the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency every year, but it turns out that the university engaged in over two dozen acts of fraud against the government.

'Cow toilets' in Netherlands aim to cut e-moo-ssions

Teaching cows to use the toilet is not the easiest task, but a Dutch inventor is banking on a new bovine urinal to help cut emissions that cause environmental damage.

Tests have started on a farm in the Netherlands on the device which collects some of the 15 to 20 litres of urine that the average cow produces a day.

That produces huge amounts of ammonia in a country like the Netherlands, which is the world's second-biggest agricultural exporter after the United States.
