The continental United States has been slammed by cold temperatures and it is difficult to escape images of Buffalo’s massive snowfall. When there is a big snowstorm, climate science deniers gleefully crow “Where’s Global Warming” and otherwise in a way that resonates with (sadly, too large) a segment of the population and is gleefully [...]

Communicating on science is difficult in American society. Tackling that communication in the face of concerted efforts to undermine science is an even more difficult challenge.
Effective teachers use a variety of methods to communicate with their students, seeking to find ways to communicate to all of the seven types of learning. For aural, we’re advised [...]

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’).

“There must be something I can do … to help our children, to help my grandchildren…. I thought it [global warming] was bullshit … and that is because I listened, I believed Bill O’Reilly … and I saw this movie and now I will apologize to anyone I ever talked into not believing in global [...]

“The Donald” is going to headline at the Republican National Convention (RNC). The widespread RUMINT is that Trump will gleefully, to laughing and cheering RNC delegates, do a fantasy skit where he fires a President Barack Obama imitator.
Missing among much of this fanfare is the core symbolism of putting Donald Trump on the stage [...]

In discussion of one of my recent posts, Kyril reacted to a questionable question from another commentator with perhaps the clearest differentiation between a science skeptic and denier that I have ever seen.

Washington Post group writer George Will stands out in multiple ways. In terms of his writing, two arenas seem to rouse his greatest passion:

When questioning media elite about how they give strong voice to anti-science global warming denialism, one of my (and others’) favorite analogies has been with those who believe the moon landings were faked in the desert. As per a years-ago letter published in the Washington Post,
This brings to mind the fact that about 15 percent [...]
