The Heartland Institute has a history of distorting climate science and lying about climate scientists. Their latest climate-related media advisory is no exception.
Daily Caller's editor repeats falsehoods and half-truths about EPA's illusionary 230,000 new workers
Daily Caller’s editor repeats falsehoods and half-truths about EPA’s illusionary 230,000 new workers and refuses to correct or retract the original article.
Mann's critics not appeased by NSF investigation, extend unfounded "whitewash" accusations to NSF itself
The OIG confirmed Penn State’s result that Michael Mann was not guilty of research misconduct. So where are all Mann’s critics admitting they were wrong about him?
If you follow space news like I do, a few weeks ago you would have stumbled across many media articles about a new astronomical discovery – a planet orbiting a pulsar that is likely a single massive diamond crystal. Very cool stuff. The leader of the team that made this discovery recently published an article […]
Fundamental flaws in a climate paper force editor-in-chief to resign just as a new paper shows off those flaws.
National Science Foundation inspectors reject implications of misconduct made by Sen. Inhofe against Michael Mann.
National Science Foundation inspectors concur with Penn State’s exoneration of Michael Mann on allegations of research misconduct.
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 […]
In his Washington Times op-ed titled 2012 GOP guide to the climate debate,” commentator Steve Milloy made a large number of claims that are demonstrably wrong – 18 at last count. But one of his claims relating to the illegal hack and release of climate scientists’ emails dubbed “Climategate” casts a shadow over all the […]
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 […]
Venus’ climate IV: How scientists know Venus’ surface temperature isn’t from a "recent" astronomical collision
Artist rendition of celestial impact that formed the Moon. Fahad Sulehria, http://www.novacelestia.com The images returned by various robotic probes to Venus suggest that the planet’s crust is geologically young – less than a billion years old. Scientists currently believe that, because Venus has no continental drift to speak of, heat generated by radioactive decay in […]
Simulation of planetary accretion (Ken Rice, UC-Riverside) Yesterday we found that, for Venus to be hot due to internal heating, either the planet’s core would have to be a star, its crust would have to be less than a meter thick, or its crust would have be composed of diamond. None of these is remotely […]
Venus’ climate II: How scientists know Venus’ surface temperature isn’t from internal heating (Corrected)
Hemispheric view of Venus produced by Magellan. One of the hypotheses proposed by climate disruption deniers for Venus’ hot surface temperature is that Venus has an unusually hot core. The logic goes like this – if the core is hot enough, then the surface temperature would be from heat bleeding through the crust instead of […]
Ultraviolet image of Venus’ clouds as seen by the Pioneer Venus Orbiter, Feb. 26, 1979 (NASA). Scientists have known that the surface of Venus is extremely hot since the first probes flew by the planet in the 1960s. Venus’ hot surface is presently understood to be a direct result of the composition of the atmosphere […]
It’s no surprise that the Republicans in the House of Representatives want to do away with the EPA’s rules on greenhouse gas emissions. But H.R.910, the bill to strip EPA authority over greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, provides at least two examples of how Republicans have chosen the blue pill of delusion instead […]
