Here’s a list of the estimable members of the US Senate who voted against disaster relief for New Jersey, Connecticut and New York yesterday. There are 32 of them. They’re all Republicans, of course. They mostly come from Red States. One is a former Presidential candidate, and several others have run for the presidency. Not only that, […]
Just the other morning, I ran across this article from ThinkProgress: Inhofe: God Says Global Warming Is a Hoax That article links to a short clip from an interview Inhofe gave to one Vic Eliason at Voice of Christian Youth America to promote his book The Greatest Hoax: “Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I […]
National Science Foundation inspectors reject implications of misconduct made by Sen. Inhofe against Michael Mann.
What is the truth about the science generated by Rachel Carson in “Silent Spring,” her landmark book about chemical pesticides that gave birth to the environmental movement? It’s an appropriate question, because an Oklahoma senator is holding up a resolution that would honor Ms. Carson on the 100th anniversary of her birth. Republican Tom Coburn, […]
Welcome to the 2010 Climate B.S. of the Year Award. 2010 saw widespread and growing evidence of rapidly warming global climate and strengthening scientific understanding of how humans are contributing to climate change. Yet on the policy front, little happened to stem the growing emissions of greenhouse gases or to help societies prepare for increasingly […]
Low-carbon holiday ideas Hurricane Ike biochar Inhofe the climate Scrooge Population and climate disruption Methane hydrate drilling in Alaska Freezing permafrost emits methane Arctic ice-free by 2015?

Six errors plus two shortcomings equals 49 former NASA employees with no climate science credentials damaging their own reputations.
Marc Morano condones threats of violence against climate scientists and their families. That tells you everything you need to know about his character, and about the character of the people who employ or work with him.
The Daily Caller inverted reality when it blamed the EPA for demanding 230,000 more employees when it’s actually an industry-led legal challenge that would force the increase.
The sixth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC), a large gathering of human-caused climate disruption deniers that is sponsored by the Heartland Institute, opens tomorrow morning. The frontpage for the conference website makes a number of misleading or false statements, but one phrase that caught my eye was “The scientists speaking at this conference…” This […]
Remember the scene in Spiderman 3 when Eddie Brock (played by Topher Grace) goes to church and prays that God will kill Peter Parker? That probably got a laugh out of most viewers because, well, how over-the-top preposterous is it to pray to God to kill someone you don’t like? Jesus us a god of […]
In case you were unaware, hackers got into the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) servers and published hundreds to thousands of documents and private communications from CRU climate scientists that pertain to climate disruption. And the climate disruption denial and conservative blogs have subsequently gone completely apeshit over it. The Wonk Room […]
U.S. consumer choices control U.S. carbon emissions The financial bailout will affect how the world addresses global heating Arctic ocean may absorb more CO2 Scientists don’t know what fewer sunspots means for global heating The choices that U.S. consumers make are directly responsible for 37% of all U.S. carbon emissions. Direct emissions include those from […]
Jesus’ General is rolling this morning. His shot at David Vitter is pretty funny, too.
Yesterday, global heating denier-in-chief Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma released a list of 400 scientists from around the world who deny that global heating is occurring, that it’s as bad as the prevailing theories say it is, that we can do anything about it, or some combination thereof. In addition to the list of names […]
