    New Green Scam: Light Bulb Carbon Credits

    Mexico will earn a royalty on carbon credits generated from energy-saving light bulbs

    New Green Scam: Light Bulb Carbon Credits


    - Steve Milloy Tuesday, November 8, 2011

    This rip-off and rent-seeking almost makes you long for Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s subprime days.

    Reuters reports, http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/11/ ... R220111107

    - Mexico will earn a royalty on carbon credits generated from energy-saving light bulbs through a world-first deal that could pave the way for other developing countries to fund emissions cuts, the investor said on Monday.

    Under the project, an Australian company, Cool nrg International, advised by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, will distribute 45 million energy efficient lightbulbs supplied by Philips Electronics to 6.5 million low-income households in Mexico City.

    The aim is to generate energy savings of 33,000 gigawatt hours, cutting annual emissions by the equivalent of about one-third of auto emissions in a city renowned for its smog.

    In total, the project aims to reduce 16 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas, over 10 years.

    The deal was announced on the sidelines of a carbon conference in Melbourne.

    Every tonne of CO2 saved will generate a credit, or certified emission reduction (CER), which Cool nrg and Merrill Lynch will sell to companies in rich nations, such as those in Australia which face a A$23 a tonne carbon tax from mid-2012 under legislation due to be passed on Tuesday.

    CERs traded on the secondary market in Europe closed on Friday at 6.50 euros ($9).

    This money for nothing — are the chicks for free? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... AD6Obi7Cag

    Clueless researchers

    Debunked already: Global warming makes animals shrink


    - Steve Milloy
    Tuesday, November 8, 2011

    A myth that lasted a month.

    Last month we spotlighted a study that claimed global warming would shrink animals by causing them to grow faster and stop growing sooner, leaving them smaller. http://junkscience.com/2011/09/27/globa ... to-shrink/

    Scarcely 30 days later, however, San Francisco State University researchers report that global warming is making birds get bigger.

    Here’s the media release: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/ ... 103111.php

    Birds are getting bigger in central California, and that was a big surprise for Rae Goodman and her colleagues.

    Goodman uncovered the trend while working as a graduate student for San Francisco State University biologist Gretchen LeBuhn, analyzing data from thousands of birds caught and released each year at two sites near San Francisco Bay and the Point Reyes National Seashore.

    The SF State scientists, working with researchers from PRBO Conservation Science and the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory who collected the data, found that birds’ wings have grown longer and birds are increasing in mass over the last 27 to 40 years.

    What’s making the birds bigger? The researchers think that the trend is due to climate change, but their findings put a twist in the usual thinking about climate change and body size. A well-known ecological rule, called Bergmann’s Rule, states that animals tend to be larger at higher latitudes. One reason for this rule might be that larger animals conserve body heat better, allowing them to thrive in the generally colder climate of higher latitudes.

    Under this reasoning, some scientists have predicted that animals would get smaller as the Earth has warmed up over the past 100 years. But the study, published in the journal Global Change Biology, suggests that the connection may not be so simple.

    Climate change may affect body size in a variety of ways, they note in their paper. For instance, birds might get bigger as they store more fat to ride out severe weather events, which are expected to be more common under global climate change. Climate change could also alter a region’s plant growth, which may eventually lead to changes in a bird’s diet that affect its size.

    LeBuhn, an assistant professor of biology, said she was “completely surprised

    Something lost in the translation? How does using light bulbs in the home cut auto emissions? Isn't that stretching the truth?

    Apparently, a prerequisite to be a "climate change researcher" is the "ability" to confuse coincidence with causation.

    CFLs, inevitably discarded improperly, will increase mercury pollution in groundwater and the oceans by gazillions-fold.

    Unless we enforce laws against illegal aliens today,
    tomorrow WE may wake up as illegals.

    The last word: illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!
