James Taylor of the Heartland Institute compound his original mistake of distorting a peer-reviewed survey by repeating his distortions and choosing to attack his critics instead of correcting his many original mistakes.
In early May, 2011 I posted a five-part series about the surface temperature of Venus. In it I demonstrated that the Venus’ surface temperature – hot enough to melt lead – was not a result of internal heating from Venus’ core. Instead, the greenhouse effect of Venus’ largely carbon dioxide atmosphere is the reason the […]
Libertarians and engineers should both engage and work to address industrial climate disruption instead of fleeing to the illusory safety of science denial.
Lance Armstrong’s wins weren’t caused by his doping, but he was still performance enhanced. Superstorm Sandy was similarly enhanced by industrial climate disruption.
The states and industry groups tried to argue that the EPA’s greenhouse gas regulations went against the Clean Air Act in multiple ways. But the DC appeals court strongly disagreed, finding in every instance that the EPA was “unambiguously correct.”
Peter Sinclair shows how claims that global warming advocates are “murderers, tyrants, and madmen” by Joe Bast of The Heartland Institute are wildly inaccurate.
Six errors plus two shortcomings equals 49 former NASA employees with no climate science credentials damaging their own reputations.
Climate Science for Everyone: Carbon dioxide increases in the air are mostly from burning coal, oil, and natural gas
Carbon dioxide has been increasing in the atmosphere for a long time now. Scientists have thoroughly examined all the possible sources – the ocean, land plants, and fossil fuels – and concluded that the increase is the result of burning coal, oil, and natural gas.
S&R’s collection of a discussion on human-caused climate disruption between Brian Angliss, S&R climate/science writer and electrical engineer, and Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer and former CEO of Scaled Composites.
Scientists can directly measure air that has been sealed in an icy time capsule for 800,000 years. Climate Science for Everyone describes how this works.
[Update: My original post, Burt Rutan's comments, and my responses to his comments have been copied here. That post has closed comments and will be updated with any further discussion Burt and I have, either in the massive comment thread below or independently. If you're interested in just Burt's and my discussion to date, minus […]
In this installment of Climate Science for Everyone – people are adding a lot of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere every year. But how much is “a lot,” really?
Australian author and climate disruption denialist Ian Plimer debunks himself with self-contradictory statements in his 2009 book “Heaven and Earth.”
The Heartland Institute has a history of distorting climate science and lying about climate scientists. Their latest climate-related media advisory is no exception.
Today, the Washington Times ran an op-ed by science-denier-for-hire Steve Milloy titled “2012 GOP guide to the climate debate.” Based on the number of errors and irrelevancies masquerading as serious concerns I discovered while reading it, the Washington Times should have titled the op-ed “How to lie to voters about climate disruption.” Here’s a brief […]
Venus’ climate V: How scientists know Venus’ surface temperature is a result of greenhouse heating (corrected)
On Monday, I wrote that there were only two possibilities for why Venus’ surface temperature is so hot – either something internal to the planet’s crust and core was keeping Venus hot, or something about the atmosphere was. Tuesday I showed that it wasn’t internal heating. Wednesday I disproved the “Venus formed recently” hypothesis. And […]
