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.
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.
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.
The Heartland Institute’s recent Unabomber billboard and accompanying essay was filled with false allegations and errors, continuing Heartland’s long history of dishonesty.
The Unabomber billboard continues a long and dark history of institutional hypocrisy by The Heartland Institute.
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.
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.
On May 6, 2010, Christopher Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, was invited by the Republican members of the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming to present testimony that contradicted over 100 years of established chemistry, physics, and climatology. Monckton, a non-scientist who has a long history of making erroneous claims, was seated as […]
As a result of the unauthorized publication of nearly 1100 private emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) in November, 2009, five separate inquiries were empaneled to look into whether or not the CRU researchers had committed research misconduct, broke Freedom of Information laws, or inappropriately biased the results of the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report […]
S&R interviewed Martin Vermeer, first author of a recent Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper on sea level rise, about how much context the published CRU emails contained. In addition to answering questions about the emails’ context, Vermeer pointed out that some of the context “bears the mark of a scientific community under […]
In case you haven’t heard, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is dead, done in by the nefarious failure to check a single reference in a 3000 page report. Or rather, that’s what climate disruption deniers want you to think. Here’s what’s really going on. Back in 2007, Working Group 2 (WG2) of the […]
In 2007, the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) refused to stake a firm position on how fast and how high sea levels would rise. The IPCC claimed that, while there was widespread agreement on sea level rise due to thermal expansion of seawater, scientists did not yet know […]
