U.N.'s Report On Climate Change To Come Out Soon

~ Arctic ice this summer is 30% greater than last summer.

In September, the National Snow and Ice Data Center reported that the average amount of Arctic sea ice for the month of August was about 6.09 million square kilometers or 2.35 million square miles. That's up from the August 2012 average of 4.71 million square kilometers or 1.82 million square miles (the all-time low was made on September 16, 2012 when the sea ice dropped to 3.42 million square kilometers or 1.32 million square miles; read our August 27, 2012 article and its updates: "Arctic Ice Melts To Lowest Level Ever"). And it didn't take long for certain right-wing media outlets such as the Daily Mail tabloid (UK) and Fox News to go on their usual insane rants about Global Warming being a hoax.

~ Lou Dobbs says there is significant Global Cooling...Really?

Because last summer was so incredibly bad, a rebound of the Arctic ice's surface area or "extent" this summer should not be surprising; its long-term trend doesn't move in a straight line, it moves in oscillating waves due to the fluctuations in the natural climate and weather patterns. And according to scientists, the situation is still very dire for the Arctic in the long run. As of September 16th of this year, the Arctic ice extent has shrunk to 5.10 million kilometers (2.00 million square miles), click here.

Updated (Sep. 3, 2015): World looks like this if all ice melted.

The Arctic ice this summer is far below average in surface area compared to other years since record keeping began in 1979 and will likely be the sixth-smallest extent on record, click here. But one must also keep in mind the thickness of the Arctic ice, which is also thinning to record levels, click here. Basically, the Arctic has lost approximately 40% of its sea ice since 1980 and for it to reverse its long-term downtrend now, as Mr. Lou Dubbs suggests, would be like the Titanic swerving away from an iceberg in mid-course!

~ NASA tells the truth.

[Study: 97% Agreement On Man-made Global Warming, click here.]

Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. saw a conservative niche in the demographics and wanted to exploit it; and we at the Frog Blog get that. But to bend the truth to the extent that Fox News has done in regard to Global Warming is just wrong. Basically, Fox News is saying that the entire mainstream media has a left-wing agenda and climate scientists of the whole world are over exaggerating their findings to bolster government control and to undermine industry. So, Fox News is supposedly the "fair and balanced" news outlet to counterbalance everybody else. Hardly. People who watch Fox News turn out to be the least informed. This isn't fair and balanced, this is right-wing propaganda and nonsense. We at the Frog Blog wonder if Fox News offers any real public benefit at all, click here.

~ Climate of deception: How Fox News distorts the climate debate.

The truth is, main stream journalists and scientists care more about their own careers and reputations than some kind of political agenda. Like in other professions, they want to be at the top of their fields, and that means they must do good, objective, truthful, and rigorous work. And the truth leads virtually all of them to Global Warming. The idea that hundreds of thousands of scientists and journalists from countless nations, in business, academics, governmental and nongovernmental agencies and organizations are ALL colluding in lockstep to deceive the entire human race about Climate Change is both ludicrous and paranoid.

~ It is a scientific certainty that the Arctic ice is melting.

U.N.'s New Climate-Change Report Is Coming

On September 27th, the United Nations's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (I.P.C.C.) will come out with its latest report; it took six years to compile by more than 800 top scientists who cited over 9,000 scientific studies from all over the world. And leaked documents reveal that scientists have revised their estimates in regard to Global Warming. Have they exaggerated their findings in the past? And will Climate-Change deniers take this opportunity to have a field day, reversing all steps already taken by governments to try to reduce greenhouse gases on our planet? predicts the I.P.C.C.'s prognosis for our planet will be as dire as ever. Please read our article on the I.P.C.C. report in early October.

~ Limbaugh can't wait to do maximum damage – to our planet.

In the video above, Rush Limbaugh calls Climate Change a fraud, citing the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (N.I.P.C.C.), as opposed to the I.P.C.C. So, what is the N.I.P.C.C.? It is head by a scientist by the name of Fred Singer. In the 1990s, Mr. Singer made it his business to deny the serious dangers of second-hand smoke. The N.I.P.C.C. is funded by the libertarian Heartland Institute, which in turn is funded by various special interest groups and corporations, including ExxonMobil. By coincidence, the Heartland Institute also worked with Phillip Morris in the 1990s to question the cancer risks of second-hand smoke. In our opinion, the N.I.P.C.C. likely practices pseudo-science.

~ Doubt is the tool-of-the-trade of the huckster.

(May 13, 2014) Two research papers published on May 12th state that because of shifting and strengthening winds. warm water is being pushed under the coastal glaciers in Western Antarctica, melting them. It is believed that this phenomenon is caused by Global Warming and it will only get worse with time. A dramatic rise in sea levels will occur and current estimates must be revised upward. Over hundreds of years, the sea level could rise by as much as 13 feet; and many coastal cities around the world as well as some islands and archipelagos on which entire nations reside might just disappear forever.

Is Creationist Ray Comfort An Idiot Or A Liar?

Photo taken by Melissa Rose

At the MTV Video Music Awards last week, Miley Cyrus' dancing shocked millions of people. Her dance routine included something called twerking. It is a sexually suggestive move, with hips thrusting, low squatting, and wobbling and jiggling in an up-and-down motion. She was also wearing skin-tone latex "underwear" that feigned nudity. And we at say, "So what?" C'mon, the woman is twenty years old. And her demographics (fans) have also grown up with her. Anyway, with the Internet, kids today are quite aware of sexuality whether Miley Cyrus twerks or not. What her critics are basically saying is that she should act like a kid forever. Nonsense.

~ Miley Cyrus' twerking causes controversy.

And now, Creationist and evangelical preacher, Ray Comfort, comes out to basically call Miley Cyrus a prostitute. What an A-hole. Ray Comfort is not new to the Frog Blog. In 2009, we wrote about how he collaborated with actor Kirk Cameron to link Adolf Hitler to Charles Darwin! Read our article, “Creation Vs. Evolution: Darwin Defamed!” This man professes to know better than a lot of fields, including physics and evolutionary biology. But in fact, he only has a high school education and didn't even have any formal training in theology before he began preaching as a minister. The two words that best describe this fool is "ignorance" and "arrogance."

~ Ray Comfort blames everything on Secular Humanism.

Ray Comfort's arguments are really stupid. Once he said that the banana is the atheist’s worst nightmare because only God can design such a perfect fruit. Later, he was told that the hybridized bananas we all know today in the supermarket have been domesticated for 5,000 to 8,000 years. The original bananas from which they came were hardly edible without cooking. He later retracted his banana statement. His general idea against science is a simplistic one: Things are complicated, so God must have created them. This concept brings forth the obfuscating term, "Intelligent Design."

~ Ray Comfort branded as the "Banana Man."

But one can easily show that complicated things, such as a snowflake, can be created by something that is not intelligent or conscious, such as our atmosphere. Based on simple logic alone, without having to delve into biology or physics, one can shoot down Comfort's ludicrous assertions by using a simple mental experiment. Let’s assume that the universe and life forms were indeed created by some form of Intelligent Design; but how do we know that it wasn't Satan who did it all? Our world is full of suffering, evil, and violence. One can argue with the same line of "logic" used by Comfort that it could only be Satan who could have created our world.

~ "Crocoduck" betrays Comfort's and Cameron's utter stupidity.

On a more specific level, Comfort's main point of contention with evolutionary scientists is that there are no fossils of a transitional species such as a "Crocoduck" – a cross between a crocodile and a duck. So, based on this line of thinking, if there are no animals evolving into one another, then only God must have created all the different species. But animals do evolve, just not in such a dramatic way. Over millions of years, they evolve through both the slight variations in their offspring and through the more pronounced genetic mutations in their offspring. And these variations determine which offspring will survive and which will not in a particular environment, allowing the survivors to give birth to the next generation of offspring that may expand further on these unique genetic traits. Through natural selection, animals adapt better and better to their environment through each successive generation. In our article, "New World Record For Smallest Woman," we discuss how the human species is likely the result of a pronounced genetic mutation, click here.

~ This type of image is misunderstood by many people.

We at believe many long-held misconceptions about Evolution are partly caused by pictures like the one above. "Evolutionary Walk" pictures have been around for over 100 years; and people incorrectly infer from this type of image that one creature "morphs" into another due to Evolution (like in the case of the Crocoduck). No, they ALL have independently evolved from a common ancestor. Humans and chimps have a common ancestor, but we did not evolve from chimpanzees. Our ancestors might very well resembled modern chimpanzees in certain ways – but then again, they might not; evidence is beginning to emerge that shows our earliest ancestor as being not ape-like and was walking upright millions of years ago. Therefore, what Creationists call the Missing Link – a "transitional species" between humans and apes – may not exist at all, click here.

~ Ray Comfort is dishonestly ignorant.

Now, back to Miley Cyrus. Ray Comfort has been presented with such a great preponderance of scientific evidence over so many years that even a moron would get it. Yet, he continues to preach his lies. Perhaps the Banana Man is not as stupid as we think (no one is this dumb). Perhaps HE'S the one who has prostituted himself in his quest to expand his ministry, his book sales, and his DVD sales. In his arrogant and audacious quest, he has committed the cardinal sin of willful ignorance, click here.

UPDATE: Miley Cyrus Blamed For Twerking Fire

(September 10, 2013) There is a YouTube Video published six days ago titled: "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches Fire!" And it received over 10 million hits. It shows a girl twerking and she ended up catching on fire. And it didn't take long for the media to blame Miley Cyrus, click here. But it was revealed on September 9th that it was all a hoax by Jimmy Kimmel. The original video is 37 seconds long. The entire unedited video is 56 seconds long.

~ The twerking fire girl is a stunt woman.

UPDATE: Lion/Tiger Hybrid Breaks Guinness Record

(September 18, 2013) Hercules is no "Crocoduck" or some other transitional-species animal, as we mentioned earlier in this article ("'Cyrus Prostituted Herself': Creationist"), but this lion and tiger hybrid made it into the Guinness World Records as the world's biggest feline on September 17th. At 922 pounds and 131 inches long (almost 11 feet), Hercules is about 1.7 to 2.8 times the weight of an average male lion; it is also about 1.3 to 2.0 times the length of an average male lion. Relative to tigers, Hercules is even bigger.

~ Hercules the liger.-----------------------------------Source:

For ligers, their fathers are always lions and their mothers are always tigresses. And according to scientists, the reason why ligers sometimes can be so much bigger than their parents is because of the different breeding strategies of lions and tigers. A lioness will mate with multiple partners and the males all try to pass on offspring that can outgrow their competitors in the womb. The lioness compensates for this by passing on a growth-inhibiting gene to her offspring as well. But a tigress will only mate with one male tiger and due to the lack of competition in the womb, the growth-inhibiting as well as growth-promoting genes do not exist.

~ And we ain't ligering...

In a liger, the growth-promoting genes may be present (from dad) while the growth-inhibiting genes are absent. So it follows that a tigon, an offspring of a tiger father and a lioness mother, may be smaller than its parents due to the possible presence of growth-inhibiting genes (from mom) and an absence of growth-promoting genes, click here.
