Scientists Accidentally Turned CO2 Into Ethanol

URL: http://energy.gov/articles/scientists-accidentally-turned-co2-ethanol

(October 21, 2016) — In a new twist for waste-to-fuel technology, scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have developed an electrochemical process that uses tiny spikes of carbon and copper to turn carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into ethanol.

“We discovered somewhat by accident that this material worked,” said ORNL’s Adam Rondinone, lead author of the team’s study. “We were trying to study the first step of a proposed reaction when we realized that the catalyst was doing the entire reaction on its own.”

It’s Time to Stop the Climate Scare Stories

Using faulty computer models to forecast climate chaos condemns millions to untimely deaths

It's time to stop the climate scare storiesIndian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sensibly refuses to attend yet another climate summit — this one called by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in New York for Sept. 23, under the auspices of the United Nations, which profits handsomely from the much-exaggerated climate scare.

Interesting report on the NIPCC’s Climate Change Reconsidered II

The claims that “the science is settled” or the “debate is settled” are demonstrably false. Scientists on both sides of the issue are still very actively debating and discussing.

News networks embrace “catastrophic warming” theme

In their recent reports on the IPCC’s latest climate science report, the major news networks all embraced the “catastrophic warming” theme and said little to nothing about the 16 years of flatlined global temperatures, numerous errors and shortfalls in the primary global circulation models, and refused to give any time or credit to skeptical scientists.

The UN’s climate panel (IPCC) released its latest warning about “catastrophic” climate change on Sept. 27, garnering the frantic attention of all three broadcast networks that night. CBS even aired a claim about temperatures rising “more than 200 degrees.”

MIT scientist Richard Lindzen rips latest IPCC report

Lindzen’s quote speaks for itself, no further comment needed.

MIT Climate Scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot on September 27, 2013:

“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence.  They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase.”

… in attributing warming to man, they fail to point out that the warming has been small, and totally consistent with their being nothing to be alarmed about.  It is quite amazing to see the contortions the IPCC has to go through in order to keep the international climate agenda going.

Apparently there’s no 97% consensus at the IPCC

From WUWT – an apparent admission that there is no 97% consensus on climate science.

Consensus? What Consensus? You’d think they’d be able to agree on this most important number. They did for AR4.

“UN IPCC Climate Report Untrustworthy”

The International Climate Science Coalition has published an intriguing article on the latest IPCC report.

“No one should trust the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] report issued today,” said Professor Bob Carter, Chief Science Advisor of the International Climate Science Coalition and former head of the School of Earth Sciences at James Cook University, Australia. “The IPCC has a history of malfeasance that even includes rewording recommendations of expert science advisors to fit the alarmist agenda of participating governments.”

International Climate Policy is …

As we continue to consider carbon taxes here in the U.S., we should also consider the self-described motivations of the mediators and architects of international climate policy.

From the mouth of Ottmar Edenhofer. Published in Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 14 November 2010. (English translation at the GWPF.)

But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore…

The IPCC May Have Outlived its Usefulness – An Interview with Judith Curry

Coalblog readers – We have reprinted (with permission) a recent interview with Dr. Judith Curry, a climate scientist Professor and Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Curry provides a unique view of the discussion of climate change and offers the opinion (among others in this interview) that the IPCC may have outlived its usefulness.

I would be interested in your thoughts and comments. Let me know what you think of Dr. Curry’s views on the state of climate science and policy today.
