This guest post comes from DWG.

“It’s clear that Sandy, Hurricane Irene, [...]

February 15th, 2013 · 5 Comments

‘Forward, the Light Brigade!’
Was there a man dismay’d ?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Some one had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do & die,
Lord Tennyson’s Charge of the Light Brigade stands as one of the most famous English-language historical poems. It also could be stated as one of the most [...]

“There’s been no warming for X years …”

January 10th, 2013 · No Comments

With 1998 either being the hottest or one of the hottest (dependent on which temperature record set one works with) years in recorded history, a constant refrain has been “there has been no warming since …” (or, for awhile, since 1998 was such a peak (aberration), ‘there has been cooling’).  That number has been extending [...]

Have you ever asked: “How do people reject climate science?”

September 6th, 2012 · No Comments

This guest post comes from John Cook, University of Queensland
and was originally published at The Conversation.
In a previous article on The Conversation, Stephan Lewandowsky asked, why do people reject science? I’m going to take a slightly different angle and consider how people are able to reject climate science in the face of strong evidence.

Another Romney Olympic Moment: Climate Zombie Dream Team

August 11th, 2012 · No Comments

Mitt Romney made waves when he crossed the pond to the United Kingdom prior to the Olympics. It is hard to imagine that a prominent American would embarrass the United States with our key ally as it entered to a prominent world event with so many casual insults and errors. One could say [...]

Conspiracy Theorist + Global Warming Denialist: The Missing Link Defined?

July 8th, 2012 · 6 Comments

April 18th, 2012 · No Comments

This is a full reposting, at request, of a post by insightful science writer Shawn Lawrence Otto.   The problems of questionable publishing on science issues is far (sadly) from limited to the mediocre post re the Denialist 49’s letter to NASA.

Obama’s Four-Letter Words and Cushing, Oklahoma

March 22nd, 2012 · 5 Comments

President Barack Obama is barnstorming the nation promoting his “all-of-the-above” energy policy.
Watching this parade reinforces that ‘Climate Change’ and ‘Global Warming’ (let alone climate chaos or catastrophic climate chaos or …) appear to be banned four-letter phrases in the Obama Administation lexicon.
Yesterday, the President was in Boulder City, Nevada, standing in front of a solar electricity facility speaking [...]
