S&R reviewed eight related commentaries written by Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition since mid-December. We found that the commentaries represent tone trolling and are packed them with distortions, errors, hypocrisy, and more. Part One of Six.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
