How To Hack A US Presidential Election

I get a lot of press releases emailed my way. One flew in this week regarding how easy/difficult it is to hack a presidential election. I didn’t spend time on it since it didn’t seem like a story for us and this election seems like one where election-day cheating is least likely to matter, but […]

Republican Scientists Tell Republican Global Warming Deniers Global Warming Is Caused By Humans (VIDEO)

Almost every practicing climate scientist on the planet has made it clear: the world is warming (i.e., heating up) and human activities are the reason. Almost every if not every national science academy has backed up this point. Popular scientific experts like Bill Nye “The Science Guy” and Neil deGrasse Tyson have done the same thing. Now, Republican […]

At a press conference in Yokohama, the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release its Fifth Assessment Report on impacts of human activities on current and […]

Rap News Video Makes Fun Of Global Warming Deniers… & Elon Musk?

I can’t tell for sure if the guys in this video are making fun of Elon Musk or just having fun with him, but they are definitely making fun of almost everyone else famous in the video (barring Copernicus), so I have a feeling they are. Odd, considering he offers two of the best solutions […]

Help Others "Get" Climate Change With This Page

If you’re a regular PlanetSave reader, you know a lot of these facts already–but here’s an excellent one-pager about climate change, a.k.a. global warming. The presenters write in everyday language with photos and feature leads. From the webpage: “The science of global warming starts with the burning of fossil fuels, specifically in vehicles fueled by […]

Great Barrier Reef Gets A Six-Week Reprieve From Big Coal

The Great Barrier Reef on November 8, 2010, from the orbit of the European Space Agency’s now-inoperative Envisat satellite, the largest civilian Earth observation instrument put into space. An uncivil war of words, money, and influence has broken out in Australia between the coal industry, which is favored by government, and the nation’s environmental interests. […]

Make-believe "Polarization" In 1st Hearing On Climate Plan

President Obama’s Plan to Fight Climate Change has an initial Congressional hearing (whitehouse.gov). Here’s what happened: Perhaps the second great step the Obama Administration has made this year with respect to climate change–after the President’s June 25 iteration of his sketchy but essentially solid outline for a new climate plan–happened this past week. The House […]

Skewering Anthony Watts' Anti-Science

It’s been awhile since we posted any takedowns of global warming deniers (or science deniers in general). However, I ran across one this week that really deserves a share. If you’re not familiar with Anthony Watts, he’s one of the leaders of the anti-science crew that thinks global warming isn’t happening (I know, it’s hard […]

Why Climate Deniers Have No Scientific Credibility

  Ever wonder where the climate deniers stand in the scientific community? Although it is not uncommon to see a news contributor (aka: research scientist) on one of the opinionated news outlets state the long-debunked nonsense that “human-caused global warming is not real,” these scientists almost always base their findings upon opinion and not peer-reviewed facts. (The sad part is they […]

Forbes & Conservation Hawks Lay Top Commentary on "Heartland-Gate" & Anthony Watts of WattsUpWithThat

  Joe Romm has a wonderful series going on the massive (seriously massive) fallout from the Heartland Institute’s recent (and ongoing) stint equating people who understand climate change is happening to mass murderers. His Day 5 post is, in my humble opinion, a must-read, so I’m reposting it in full here (everything that follows is […]

Low-Climate-Sensitivity Theory (Last Climate Skeptic Claim) Gets Debunked… x 3

  This is Part 1 of a 2-Part series on climate sensitivity originally posted on Skeptical Science and reposted with permission. When it comes to global climate change, there are two critical and intertwined, but distinct issues: science, and policy.  We generally focus on the science, because that is what dictates the appropriate policy response, or at least what […]

AT&T's Contributions to (Un-)Think Tank Heartland Institute 'Past' (& Pepsi Also Distances Itself)

  Last week, I had the pleasure of writing that GM was cutting its financial support for the Heartland Institute due to the institute’s extreme stance opposed to the scientific consensus on global warming (that it is happening and caused by humans). This week, AT&T has also stated that its support for the Heartland Institute […]

Santorum, Gingrich, Romney Get Dogged for Clean Energy & Global Warming Ignorance by Colbert (VIDEO)

  Following up on Tom’s great post on Santorum’s global warming denial, Colbert has a great segment completely dogging him for his belief that ‘plants benefit from global warming’ — below the Colbert video, also checking out a great and funny debunking of this claim from Peter Sinclair. In addition to nailing Santorum for his […]

Why "Global Warming is a Hoax" is a Completely Idiotic Idea (Infographic & Table)

  If global warming is a hoax, I’m a green alien from the planet Straftyorb. Seriously. Our media network founder, David Anderson, shared the infographic below on Facebook the other day. I passed on sharing it on here because it just seems so obvious. However, it’s been going around and it is a pretty straightforward […]

Confusionist Lawyer Writes in Forbes to Defend Heartland Institute's Conspiracy Theories on Global Warming

  Ah, wonderful to see a lawyer getting on Forbes to discuss global warming and the odd “scientific ” agenda of an institute perhaps best known for trying to convince us that smoking is completely safe. Of course, we’ve written on the Heartland Institute leak numerous times now, but here’s a little more, as well […]

Congressman Markey Asks for Heartland Institute Documents on "campaign to undermine the teaching of well-established science"

  The News: Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), one of the best Congressmen I’ve ever known, wrote to the Heartland Institute today to request original copies of Heartland Institute documents leaked this month by Peter Gleick that show the institute is funding a federal employee to spread global warming confusion and conspiracy theories in public schools. Markey wants […]
