Mooney: "Science ought to check itself"

A big part of the global warming denial industry argument is the contention that somehow scientists and policymakers over-inflate the threat of global warming to continue the flow of government research dollars.

Many, including the DeSmogBlog, have refuted the claim, but none quite so well as our friend and author Chris Mooney did to a question posed by “skeptic” Bill Gray at a recent symposium.

Will We Step Onto a Cosmic Treadmill?

New research indicates that hacking the atmosphere – pumping microscopic particles into the stratosphere or clouds to block sunlight and offset global warming caused by greenhouse gases – is imminently possible.

The problem is: we could never, ever stop doing it.

Sorry Newsbusters, who's alarmist?

From the Brent Bozell oil-backed echo chamber comes a lovely screed today that clearly defines global warming “alarmism.” Or at least how it is defined by an organization devoted to outing the great Liberal conspiracy in the US media.

It also seems they're now resorting to sci-fi writers to “debunk” global warming.

And apparently, “debunk” in the mind of Newsbuster writer Noel Sheppard, has nothing to do with actual science, but the rantings of a sci fi writer named Orson Scott Card.

A bare-faced lie - from a predictable source

There is nothing particularly unusual about current weather and climate change – it is generally well within long-term normal patterns. – Tim Ball, CFP, July 20, 2007

A Yellow Flag on Warming from a Most Unlikely Source

Talking about climate change at a Formula One race might at first glance seem like praising celibacy in a brothel.

The world's top motor sport competition is for many the epitome of gas-guzzling wastefulness with powerful engines burning nearly a litre of fossil fuel per kilometre. But a growing number of team bosses say they want to make Formula One a high-tech pioneer and leader in fighting climate change rather than a whipping post.

New study ties beef production to global warming

Japanese scientists have concluded beef production typically contributes more to climate change than cars do. The main source of greenhouse gas emissions is the methane released from an animal's digestive system.
