Andel, Dr. Ir. Noor van

"Noor van Andel imponeert KNMI met broeikasfysica": Afgelopen donderdag was de spreker in het wekelijkse KNMI colloqium Dr. Ir. Noor van Andel, die als een van de weinigen op aarde (!!!) intensief studeert op de fundamentele werking van het broeikaseffect en in samenhang daarmee het te verwachten effect van een verhoogde concentratie broeikasgassen in de atmosfeer.

Lees de teksten van zijn lezing en vooral de eindconclusies.

Bush, George (1946)


George W. Bush

huis van George Bush  

His house seems to be an example of environmentally conscious housing. This in contrast with the house of the environmentalists champion Al Gore (see below). The home of the Bushes, near Crawford, Texas, is described on the internet since ca. 2007 as follows:
Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university. This house incorporates every "green" feature current home construction can provide. The house is 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on a high prairie in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat-pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground.  The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer.  The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas and it consumes one-quarter electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house.  Surrounding flowers and shrubs native to the area enable the property to blend into the surrounding rural landscape.   

Gore, Al

Al Gore met wereldbol The home of Al Gore ?: A perfect example of  "do as I say and not as I do !!"

The house of Al Gore, near Nashville, Tennessee, is described since 2007 on the internet as follows:
A 20 room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guest house, all heated by gas. In one month this residence consumes more energy than the average American household does in a year. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2400 per month.  In natural gas alone, this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not situated in a Northern or Midwestern "snow  belt"  area. It's in the South.

See the cartoon movie "Save Al Gore" in which fun is made of his Co2 consuming life style and traveling and his idea that it is mankind that makes the world warm up.

 History and Climate: book by P. D. Jones / A. E. J. Ogilvie / T. D. Davies / K. R. Briffa   History and Climate: memories of the future ?

P. D. Jones / A. E. J. Ogilie / T. D. Davies / K.R. Brifa,

Kluwer Academic Pub, 2001

ISBN-10:   0306465892
ISBN-13:   9780306465895

Most studies of the impacts of climate change consider impacts in the future from anthropogenic climate change. Very few consider what the impacts of past climate change have been. History and Climate: Memories of the Future? contains 13 interdisciplinary chapters which consider impacts of change in different regions of the world, over the last millennium. Initial chapters assess evidence for the changes, while later chapters consider the impacts on agriculture, fisheries, health, and society. The book will be of interest to anyone working in the field of climate change and history.
