A new study of 11,944 peer-reviewed papers over the course of 21 years finds that 97% of all papers with a stated position on climate disruption, and 98.4% of their authors, agree that human activity is driving climate disruption.
Largest study of peer-reviewed literature to date finds overwhelming climate disruption consensus (UPDATED)
Alyssa Carducci of Media Trackers-Florida and The Heartland Institute revealed her ignorance of academia and climate issues and her hypocrisy regarding ethics when she misrepresented herself in order to obtain information on scientist Michael Mann’s speaking fees.
Climate scientist Michael Mann has sued the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the National Review for defamation over statements that accuse Mann of scientific misconduct and that compare him to convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky.
The DC Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that the greenhouse gas Endangerment Finding was exactly what the EPA said it was – based on sound scientific evidence and anchored firmly within the legal requirements of the Clean Air Act.
When the DC appeals court ruled that the EPA had the authority to regulate greenhouse gases on June 26, 2012, it brought to a close a process of regulation and court challenges that started in 1999.
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.
It is now T-minus 14 days and counting to official acknowledgment of the published Heartland documents’ authenticity.
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 […]
Peter H. Gleick collects the five most outrageous examples of climate BS (Bad Science) from 2011, with several runners-up. Number one? All the Republican presidential candidates.
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 illegally hacked and published CRU emails do not contain enough context to draw any firm conclusions about much of anything – real investigations, where complete records are examined and the principles are interviewed about meetings, phone conversations, and white-board conversations are required. And all such investigations have found that the so-called Climategate emails show no evidence of misconduct or conspiracy.
