Scientists Wax Optimistic in the face of Disaster

Climate scientist Michael Mann runs down the list of bad global warming news: The world is spewing greenhouse gases at a faster rate. Summer Arctic sea ice is at record lows. The ice sheets in Greenland and West Antarctica are melting quicker than expected.

Is he the doomsayer global warming skeptics have called him? Mann laughs. This Penn State University professor — and many other climate scientists — are sunny optimists. Hope blooms in the hottest of greenhouses.

McIntyre Unearths Fresh Climate Graph Outrage

Steve McIntyre, who with Ross McKitrick has been the author of the long-running hockey stick controversy, has replotted all of the climate reconstructions recently reported in New Scientist magazine and has discovered - well, he seems to have discovered a whole equipment bag full of hockey sticks (see illustration).

National Post Lionizing Deniers: DeSmogBlog Shocked; SHOCKED!

Having struggled valiantly over the years to provide a home for any writer or “scientist” who will challenge the global climate change consensus, Canada's National Post has started a series on “The Deniers,” people who the Post would laud for trying to undermine Canada's commitment to climate change policy.

Energy-Funded Pol Launches Yet Another Congressional Mannhunt

Rep. Ed Whitfield, a Republican congressman from Kentucky (and a darling of the coal, gas, oil, auto and railroad industries), will be holding yet another set of hearings on the famous “hockey stick” climate reconstruction graph by Drs. Michael Mann, Raymond Bradley and Malcolm Hughes.  Mann indicated he will testify – even though his graph has become a lightning rod for climate-change deniers.

(They deniers seem oblivious to the fact that Mann's work has been thoroughly peer-reviewed and approved by a number of studies, most recently by the US  National Research Council.  They also seem not to understand that even if Mann's work were proved to be fatally flawed, it is only the latest of many scientifically approved studies that prove we humans, by our burning of coal and oil, are trashing the planet.)

Congressman Resurrects Notorious Mann-hunt

Last year, the famous “hockey-stick” graph by researchers Michael Mann, Raymond Bradley and Malcolm Hughes, came under fire when it was deemed inaccurate by two Canadians – Stephen McIntyre, a minerals and oil consultant, and Ross McKitrick, and economist – neither of whom have any background in climate science.
