We have not had regular emails because we update the site on a daily basis usually with multiple stories or posts. The site now has 2198 weblog entries and 85 Climate Library papers. You can search for any topic using the search on the left. You can use the author name or topic and the relevant stories will appear in reverse chronological order.
http://icecap.us is the home page if you have forgotten. 17 Stories will appear on the home page at all times, rotating back into the archives (COLD STORAGE or later FROZEN IN TIME) as new stories are added. If the story was on the home page very recently and you know what section, you may get at it quickly by clicking on COLD STORAGE. Story titles hyperlink to the source where possible (when underlined). We also provide a link to the source post or a PDF at the end of the summary for each story. Photos and graphs used usually have a choice to enlarge them enabling you to save images.
Current topics include stories on the latest GISS/NOAA data blunder, Gore’s decision not to accept a Climate Czar posiiton in the Obama administration, an Energy Strategy for America, Global Warming a Political Context, A study of long term trends from the Monthly Weather Review in 1933 that sounds eerily like the recent debate, and challenges to the claims that rising sea levels threaten coastal military facilities, and that accelerated melting of Greenland ice was taking place.
The most important reason I am writing you today is to alert you the Second Annual International Conference on Climate Change in New York City on March 8-10, 2009. The theme of the conference is “Global Warming Crisis: Cancelled. Was it ever really a crisis?” The title reflects (a) the shift in scientific understanding toward the skeptics’ perspective, (b) the defeat of the Lieberman-Warner cap-and-trade bill in the U.S. Senate in July, (c) rising public opinion opposing global warming alarmism, and (d) rising energy and food prices around the world.
There will be over 70 speakers including Dr William Gray, Dr. Richard Lindzen, Dr. Roy Spencer, Dr. Willie Soon, Dr. Bob Carter, Dr. Fred Singer, Anthony Watts, Steve McIntyre, Dr. Ross McKitrick. Lord Christopher Monckton, Craig Idso, Dr. Benny Peiser, John Coleman, Chris Horner, Dr. Tim Patterson, Dr. Paul Reiter, and many, many more. I also will be speaking. Details and links are provided in the bottom right section on Icecap.
ICECAP is one of the co-sponsors. If we are able to gather enough in donations in the next few months, we may also a booth. We as a co-sponsor, have tickets available that will save on the registration fee which will be $720 at the door. You would have to arrange and pay for your own travel and lodging. If you make a donation to Icecap, and notify me at this email address that you plan to attend, you name will be put in a hat and I will draw a dozen winners. If you win, you can pick up your ticket at the registration desk. Please inform us if you decide you can’t make it, so we can make the ticket available to others who can.
This is a real opportunity to meet and talk to some of the giants in the field. I attended and spoke at last years’ conference which I wrote about here: http://energytribune.com/articles.cfm?aid=880.
Thank you for your interest in and support of Icecap over the last 1 1/2 years. We have had over 5.1 million people hits on our home page over that time. 80% since last November. We receive most all of our operating expenses from donations from people like you and we are thankful for your support. Like most of the other skeptic bloggers, we are not driven by profit but by the need to provide to you information that is not getting out through to you in the mainstream media. This has never been more important than it is today when our governments have taken or are contemplating unnecessary and unwise steps that will do further harm to an already collapsing global economy.
