Rick Perry Mistaken, Galileo Was a Liberal

September 15th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Love this piece by Chris Mooney of Desmog Blog on Rick Perry's ridiculous assumption that climate science deniers are like Galileo (I've written similar replies in the comments of our posts several times over the years), so reposting it in full here


Prominent Former Global Warming Skeptic & Conservative Tackles GOP's "rejection of proven science"

June 2nd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Anyone with a moral conscience who digs into climate science at all (not snake science from global warming denier websites, but real climate science), will find that humans are causing global warming, the effects of global warming are serious, and we should be doing something NOW to address the issue. I've been covering stories on a number of "climate science skeptics" and conservatives who, after delving into the science for real, found that the evidence for the above was overwhelming and "changed sides" (starting working to address climate change not hide from it). Here's a bit from a piece by another former global warming skeptic, former Republican Party officer and author Michael Stafford


Cartoonist Tom Toles Slams Republican Global Warming Deniers

May 26th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Tom Toles creates some of the best climate change and political cartoons I've seen. He's a Pullitzer-Prize winning cartoonist who works for the Washington Post. After the “1,000,000th email [in a day] complaining that [he's] not fair to the Republicans” following a recent cartoon of his (above), Toles wrote the following (a great post on global warming denial and Republicans)


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)


Why Is the World Not Freaking Out about a Major, Plagiarized Global Warming Denial Report?

May 24th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

When a totally false scandal breaks out based on a clear crime (breaking into, stealing, and publishing portions of scientist's emails in a way as to frame them) and climate scientists are the victims, the media and public jump all over it (in completely the wrong way). When, however, one of climate deniers' prize reports is found to have been largely plagiarized (not to mention seriously flawed), no one seems to care. As you may (or may not) have heard, the Wegman Report, a key report attacking the "hockey stick graph" and leading climate scientists, in general, was found to be based on plagiarized material (and was also found to be seriously flawed, scientifically)


'Temperature Leads Carbon' Climate Denial Crock {VIDEO}

May 22nd, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

From our favorite climate denial de-crocker on the web, here's another great video from him (recently updated). As he summarizes on Climate Denial Crock of the Week: "For a lot of climate deniers, this is their penultimate argument, the master climate crock. They think it’s the stroke to end all arguments.  It’s only the most outrageous and dishonest cherry pick of all time."
