New Scientist debunks the skeptic myths

Hi, New Scientist? Yes, I would like to order 300 million copies of your Climate Change: Guide for the perplexed. Yes, and please send about 200 copies to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20500.

New Scientist's upcoming issue will include what is by far the most comprehensive debunking of the global warming myths, continuously used by the small handful of so-called “experts” who say either: a) global warming isn't happening; (b) humans are not too blame, and anything in between.

Ever wondered about “medieval warming?” “The Little Ice Age?” “Cosmic Rays?” And of the other denier messages? Check out the New Scientist here, save them to the hard drive and get the message out.

Here's links to each thorough debunking:

Scientists Shocked at Full Ocean Bloat

The Southern Ocean around Antarctica is so loaded with carbon dioxide that it can barely absorb any more, so more of the gas will stay in the atmosphere to warm up the planet. Researcher Corinne Le Quere said: “We thought we would be able to detect these only the second half of this century, say 2050 or so.” But data from 1981 through 2004 show the sink is already full of carbon dioxide. “So I find this really quite alarming,” she added.

Broad coalition of cities and banks pledge billions to curb carbon emissions

The assembly of 16 of the world’s largest cities and five banks also includes ex-President Bill Clinton, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and several corporations. Under the plan, developed through the William J. Clinton Foundation, participating banks would provide up to $1 billion each in loans to cities or private landlords to upgrade energy-hungry heating, cooling and lighting systems in older buildings.

Pssst! Wanna Buy a Cheap, Inefficient, Illegal Lightbulb

Hide your children: the dim bulbs at the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (NRSP) are warning that the federal ban on incandescent lightbulbs could soon give rise to a black market in inefficient lighting.

Imagine, Tim Ball and Tom Harris , decked out in bulky coats and lurking in the alleyways of Toronto and Victoria, offering addicts the opportunty to burn four to six times as much energy with a single lightbulb.

Ah well, when energy industry lobby firms run out of money to pay the NRSP principals to dissemble on climate change, at least the two spinmeisters have an exit strategy.

Fast Food Giants See a Whopper of a Problem

Corn's central role in our diet suggests that Earth's temperature fluctuations, and concerns over emissions that are believed to affect the climate, will become a more intensive focus for the companies that put food in our mouths, as they seek to meet demand with steady supplies and at prices that preserve, or even improve, profit.
