It’s most illogical for climate disruption deniers to arguing against the overwhelming scientific consensus regarding the industrial nature of climate disruption using the flat Earth analogy.
The Galileo Fallacy: introducing Climate Illogic, a new series unmasking illogical claims made against climate science
Climate disruption deniers who claiming to be like Galileo battling the Catholic Church are making a fundamentally illogical argument.
Largest study of peer-reviewed literature to date finds overwhelming climate disruption consensus (UPDATED)
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.
Water stores a lot more energy than air does. So when energy stored in the oceans is released back into the atmosphere, the results are dramatic.
John Cook, editor of the climate website SkepticalScience.com and Climate Communication Fellow for the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, Australia, is conducting a crowd-sourced online survey of 12,000 climate papers. S&R was approached by Cook to participate by posting a link to the survey website at the University of Queensland. According to […]
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.
James Taylor of the Heartland Institute distorts yet another peer-reviewed study in a vain attempt to counter the overwhelming number of climate experts and scientists who accept the reality of industrial climate disruption.
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 […]
Heartland Institute senior fellow James Taylor’s tries – and fails – to discredit the draft National Climate Assessment by attacking a small minority of the Assessment’s authors.
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.
Recent media reports are falsely claiming that global temperatures haven’t risen for the last 16 years. They have, but it’s being masked, as a Skeptical Science-produced video illustrates.
In response to being put on a list of Top Climate Stories for 2012 for comparing climate realists to serial killers, Heartland Institute president Joseph Bast continued his habit of responding to his critics with dishonesty, deception, and hypocrisy.
Libertarians and engineers should both engage and work to address industrial climate disruption instead of fleeing to the illusory safety of science denial.
Most engineers take on some of their employer’s values. As a result, many engineers come to see industrial climate disruption as a threat to their employer and to their jobs, and that leads too many engineers to deny the reality of industrial climate disruption.
Libertarians who feel that their personal liberty is threatened by industrial climate disruption are more susceptible than most to confirmation bias and motivated reasoning. That’s why so many libertarians deny the reality of industrial climate disruption.
