Oklahoma desperately needs @JimInhofe’s snowballs

February 14th, 2017 · No Comments

From Donald Trump to Sean Hannity to Harold Hamm to Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Exxon), one of the favorite global warming science denial idiocies is “Ha … if there’s so much warming, why’s there snow outside.” ┬áJim Inhofe famously had his grandchildren make an igloo mocking Al Gore and more famously wanted to start a snowball […]

ALEC lets Inhofe have it …

March 19th, 2012 · 2 Comments

No, we’re not talking about the right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) efforts to push radically conservative corporative legislation through state legislative bodies (such as ALEC re climate change) but Alec Baldwin. Perhaps sparked by global warming denier Jim Inhofe’s recent appearance on the Rachel Maddow Show, Baldwin launched a series of tweets attacking Inhofe: […]

Generation Hot questions … and gets told “science doesn’t really matter”

February 16th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Yesterday, Mark Hertsgaard and friends went to confront cranky anti-science climate zombies on Capital Hill. Perhaps my favorite line of all is when the young woman asks Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Exxon) a perplexing question: I don’t understand why my generation has to suffer because you don’t like what you’re hearing. There are several striking items […]

Climate Disruption: Airlifting snow from Washington, DC, to Vancouver, British Columbia

February 11th, 2010 · Comments Off on Climate Disruption: Airlifting snow from Washington, DC, to Vancouver, British Columbia

Prominent elements Republican Party and associated anti-science syndrome sufferers are gleefully (and ignorantly) making jokes about the Washington, DC, area’s record snow levels, using this to confuse people about the realities of Global Warming. The reality of Global Warming is that “warmth” isn’t what all of us will feel with each moment, after all that […]

Does John Broder know that Media Matters exists?

December 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

The head of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, Professor Phil Jones, has stepped aside from his directorship for a temporary period to enable a faster and more comprehensive investigation of the Center’s electronic security and of how he (and others) managed the CRU (and their email correspondence) in the face of determined […]

HuffPost scores a 100 on the Inhofe Scale

January 5th, 2009 · 9 Comments

The New Year began with a bang over at the Huffington Post: the explosion of a new poster with a diatribe meriting a solid 100 on the Inhofe scale. [To DIGG this post.] As a reminder, thoughtful energy blogger Lou Grinzo (Cost of Energy) developed the concept of The Inhofe Scale. The Inhofe Scale will […]

Revisiting Inhofian Deception

December 13th, 2008 · 11 Comments

It must be that time of year again. [DIGG this story.] Just like last year, the Minority on the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Commitee (read James Inhofe (R-Exxon)) has just released another “report” somehow proving that the globe isn’t warming or, if that fails, that humanity has nothing to do with the warming […]

Lovley Display of Scientific Ignorance

November 25th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Politico published a science story by Erika Lovley so bad that, well, there is no legitimate reason to post directly to it directly as opposed to Joe Romm with New media same as the old media. Politico pimps global cooling for Hill deniers, David Roberts with Politico’s journalist malpractice, The Way Things Break with “Scientists” […]

Pat Sajak: Gl_b_l W_rm_ng D_n_ _ r ( _ssh_l_!)

June 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Well, the man who needs aditzy blond to help him spell words has come out of the woodworks. Pat Sajak is a strong-worded Global Warming Skeptic. Sadly, Wheel of Fortune’s host probably has a greater voice than the thousands of IPCC scientists with a segment of the American public … hopefully that segment isn’t highly […]

Fair and Balanced strikes WashPost Global Warming reporting … again

June 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Fair and Balanced strikes WashPost Global Warming reporting … again

Earlier this week, two Washington Post articles demonstrated, yet again, the Post’s editors’ dedication to modeling Post reporting after Faux News when it comes to Global Warming: “Fair and Balanced” over objective and truthful. In what were otherwise quite interesting and even valuable articles to read, the Post inserted material from Global Warming deniers and […]
