BEST Study (Climate Science Skeptic Study) Finds Global Warming is Real — Global Warming Deniers Are Pissed (What's New?)

October 22nd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

When Richard Muller launched the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature study (BEST) to "independently" evaluate once and for all if global warming was happening or not, many of us followers of climate science were a bit irritated. Why? THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED repeatedly. Nearly every overarching scientific body and organization connected with the matter has backed up the clear findings, because it is not just 1 or 2 things telling us the world is warming -- about a dozen long-researched factors show us very clearly that the world is warming due to human greenhouse gas emissions. The BEST study was partially funded by some of the biggest global warming deniers on the planet. Richard Muller was widely known for completely misquoting and misrepresenting both climate scientists and Al Gore on this matter. Well, even despite the potential bias and flaws, the now-released results of the BEST study reiterate (for the umpteenth time) global warming is happening. The results are nearly identical to the results of so many climate scientists and overarching scientific bodies before it that this really would not be news in a sane world. From the BEST study


Global Warming Videos (Best, Funniest, Most Inspiring)

October 6th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a lot of good videos out there on global warming and climate change, and solutions to them. Sometimes, though, I have a hard time finding the one I'm looking for. So, I thought I'd create a piece with all the best global warming and climate change videos I know of (and I'll add to it as new ones are created)


NASA's Top Climate Scientist: U.S. South Could Become Uninhabitable

October 4th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Well, it doesn't come as a huge surprise to see this statement from NASA's James Hansen, perhaps the top climate scientist in the world. But it's a statement we seem to keep ignoring. Here's the statement I'm referring to: “Climate change — human-made global warming — is happening. It is already having noticeable impacts…. If we stay on with business as usual, the southern U.S. will become almost uninhabitable.”


Understanding Climate Denial

This is a great piece by John Cook of Skeptical Science that I thought I should share (especially after going back & forth with a confused denier on email this week)


USA Today: Climate Science Deniers are Like "Birthers"

May 24th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

The LA Times and Washington Post aren't the only major media outlets that are starting to tear into the Republican party and other global warming deniers for their absolute rejection of science. USA Today, which I think has really turned things around in recent years and has some of the best climate change coverage of any major newspaper company, had an excellent editorial on the matter recently, one that compares climate science deniers to "birthers" (the folks who didn't and maybe still don't believe that Obama was born in the United States)
