Scientist states a startling fact, humiliating lying propagandists

Given the Right and their "thnuk tanks" concede the Green's lie, man causes globular warming and climatically sheet changing via carbon emissions, this is pertinent:

Research Scientist Dr. Roy W. Spencer (the University of Alabama), is so disturbed by the lies governments are using as an excuse to impose destructive policies that he has taken to public polemics. He has been engaged in the fight since at least 2004. His effectiveness is indicated by the sheer number of hardcore Leftists who expend many words smearing him, as even a cursory google search shows.

Many of the birds that migrate to Britain and Europe from Africa every spring, from the willow warbler to the cuckoo, are undergoing alarming declines, new research shows.

The falls in numbers are so sharp and widespread that ornithologists are waking up to a major new environmental problem - the possibility that the whole system of bird migration between Africa and Europe is running into trouble.

Extreme Ocean Storms Have Become More Frequent Over Past Three Decades, Study Of Tiny Tremors Shows

Data from faint earth tremors caused by wind-driven ocean waves -- often dismissed as "background noise" at seismographic stations around the world -- suggest extreme ocean storms have become more frequent over the past three decades. The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other prominent researchers have predicted that stronger and more frequent storms may occur as a result of global warming trends. The tiny tremors, or microseisms, offer a new way to discover whether these predictions are already coming true, said Richard Aster, a geophysics professor at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
