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 […]
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 […]
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.
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.
