Keystone Pipeline: Housecats Have More Emissions Impact | Watts Up With That?
The review estimates that if Keystone is not built, oil sands production will be only 0.4 to 0.6 percent less that if the pipeline is built, or less than 0.83 million metric tons of CO2-equivalent emissions annually. This difference equates to less than two hours of U.S. emissions, a negligible amount. Seventy-four million US housecats annually cause an estimated 196 times this emissions volume. Why isn’t Greenpeace urging President Obama to ban cats?
German Doubts Over Renewable Energies Skyrocket…Pollster: “Surprised By The Great Skepticism”
In Germany only 9% of the population believe it will be possible to cover Germany ‘s energy demands with only renewable energy sources (only 6% in the Ruhr Region). In a nutshell: Germans no longer believe in the pipe dream and have already given up on it. In 2011, that figure was 39%.

Only hardcore greens still believe it’s possible (like the reality-detached Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Reserch – PIK).

Major fail.

The entire NOAA US temperature record is a complete fraud – and meaningless at this point. The animation below shows how NOAA turns a cooling trend into a warming trend.
