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 [...]

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.
A growing [...]

For too long, the Democratic Party “machine” has been eerily silent when it comes to the scientific consensus on climate change and the risks that catastrophic climate chaos creates for America and Americans. While much has been said and heard on ‘clean energy’ and ‘green jobs’, the words “climate change” and “global warming” have [...]

Have to say that “Weather Gone Wild” sounds all too close to tasteless (and discomfitting) late-night advertising during repeats of old B movies on obscure cable channels (happily not seen for a long time). This could easily be the title for much of The Weather Channel’s programming. In fact, this is the cover story and [...]

James Hansen’s latest findings
linking extreme weather to climate change is
science society cannot afford to ignore.

At the second annual Association of Climate Change Officers (ACCO) meeting on the military and climate change, John Englander gave a lunch-time talk based on his forthcoming book on sea-level rise: High-Tide on Main Street.
Englander tried to structure his presentation as “non-partisan”, stating that his book aimed to reach people who might be ‘turned off’ by Gore [...]

There are so many studies out there, so many surveys … most of the time, I don’t take them but here is one that is worth the time. Researchers at the University of Western Australia want people who visit sites like this to take a quick survey (about 10 min.). The survey focuses on [...]

Want to prod an anti-science syndrome sufferer into a vitriolic rampage, utter two words: “hockey stick”. And, want to see them turn red, add two more words: “Michael Mann”. Simply put, Dr. Michael Mann’s work on reconstructing temperature records using multiple sources provided a very telling demonstration of how (rapidly mounting) modern temperatures were entering [...]

Amid all the screaming signs about Global Warming’s increasingly serious impact on the world around us and on human civilizations future prospects, the ‘luxury’ symbolic canaries in the coal mine always create mixed emotions. Global Warming’s threat to skiing (and declining viable Winter Olympics locations), and to wine making and bourbon and beer and chocolate and maple syrup and [...]

There is a strong scientific consensus supporting the scientific Theory of Global Warming and these key points:
There is warming
Humanity is contributing to that warming
This warming could create significant harm.
While scientific “debate” always continued and there are debates over many elements within and around climate science (How fast will the Arctic Ice melt? Is there a [...]
