Hundreds of studies challenge scientific "consensus" on climate change

Someone checked out 400 scientific papers (really?) and concluded that challenge the scientific “consensus” that climate change (no longer called global warming) is fueled my manmade CO2 emissions. If you can plow through all this science, please let me know. I admit that 400 papers  is a lot more than I can handle. I make... Read more »

Wait, global warming isn't killing the polar bears?

For all the sirens going off about how global warming (sorry, climate change) is threatening polar bears, it seems they have been thriving. So much so that they no longer are a ubiquitous symbol for atmospheric warming. Read about it in Fat polar bears [and lots of them] drive public confidence in future of the species in Polar Bear...

Oops, Europe's CO2 emissions increase

For all the lecturing that the Europeans do about America’s “failed” leadership in the fight against human-caused global warming, it should be noted that while America has been decreasing the amount of carbon dioxide it has released into the atmosphere, Europe’s contribution has risen.

The 'March for Science' subverts real science

How can anyone so passionately support science yet be so ignorant about science? Certainly many of those who participated the in March for Science and its sisters, the People’s Climate March and today’s May Day March, were scientists or those who understand science.

The anti-science hype about the 2016 being the "hottest year"

Climate change mutes fall colors

At least that’s what we’re supposed to believe. Says Gothomist (“Go See Some Gorgeous Fall Leaves In A City Park (While You Can)!” Our schizophrenic autumn (thanks, climate change!) is here, and the window to do some leaf peeping will be “brief.” The thinking goes that global warming has caused a drought in the northeast, which has stressed out...

Clinton and Gore's unscientific assertion that climate change worsened Hurricane Matthew

They’re at it again. After scientists have repeatedly warned that one event does not prove or disprove a hypothesis, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former Vice President Al Gore asserted in a campaign appearance that Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change.
