Al Gore & Bill Maher Talk Climate Change & The Deniers

Take a few moments for this video — despite the compromised visual quality, the sound is fine. The conversation flows nicely. Climate Reality leader Al Gore and Bill Maher talk climate change and the deniers. It is a short conversation complete with great reminders and touches of humour (as typical of Maher’s style). Mayer’s questions enhance the

International Radio Broadcast Equivocal About Geoengineering

In a spot aired this afternoon called “Geoengineers: Who will rule the climate?” the world’s third largest radio station, Voice of Russia, seems to be wobbling on whether or not wholesale scientific experimentation could alter the destructive path of anthropomorphic climate change. VOR, reportedly the first radio station to broadcast internationally, serves about 109 million listeners of

'The Inquisition of Climate Science' – A Book Review

The Inquisition of Climate Science by James Lawrence Powell is an essential literary resource for understanding how modern climate science is conducted, and equally, for understanding how climate change denialism has evolved and continues to undermine the public interest, to its great peril. Powell’s title smartly preempts the spurious notion of a “fair and balanced”

Al Gore: 'Democracy Has Been Hacked' & It's Time for 'Occupy Democracy'

  Last week, at the popular South By Southwest techie conference, former president vice president Al Gore gave us a straight-up line of U.S. politics and society today: “Our democracy has been hacked.” In particular, Gore was focusing on Big Money’s takeover of our political system. Gore’s call to action? “Occupy Democracy!” “He pushed for the creation

Al Gore DIDN'T Polarize Global Warming Debate (+ Media & Obama Dropping the Ball)

For anyone still confused about this, here’s a great post by Joe Romm of Climate Progress reposted in full below. The post, based on a new study, also tackles other common myths the global-warming-denial contrarians love to spread and many greens will even parrot. Other big points are that Obama’s silence on global warming is

Myles Allen & Guardian Screw & Misquote Al Gore; Joe Romm Sets the Record Straight

When I first saw this piece in the Guardian, I thought “WTF?” The Guardian is actually the only mass media machine I really respect and follow on global warming and climate change issues. But this piece tearing into Gore for a quote that was not actually a Gore quote (but a Guardian journalist’s quote) was a shocker, and abysmal piece. Interestingly, it came from a climate scientist who doesn’t seem to be getting the respect his colleagues is getting. Anyway, here’s Dr. Joe Romm’s full debunking:

Al Gore Launches Climate Reality Project

Al Gore turned from a waffling politician to a leading climate action activist a few years ago. If someone mentions Al Gore now, probably the #1 association that comes to mind is global warming, due to his wildly popular and influential film “An Inconvenient Truth” and resulting Nobel Peace Prize. While there are probably thousands upon thousands of trolls spreading misinformation about Al Gore and climate change across the internet, confusing the public and hurting a very respectable man’s reputation, Al Gore and his message are tremendously needed today.

Today is World Population Day

Today is World Population Day. It was established on July 11, 1987 when world population hit 5 billion. This year—just 24 years later—world population is expected to surpass 7 billion. There is hardly cause to celebrate when you consider it took some 50,000 years for the population to reach 5 billion, and just 24 to add another 2 billion.

Quote of the Week: Al Gore

Yeah, I think I skipped a week or two, but this excellent quote by Al Gore in his completely excellent article in Rolling Stone this week is worth some highlighting:

“Here is the truth: The Earth is round; Saddam Hussein did not attack us on 9/11; Elvis is dead; Obama was born in the United States; and the climate crisis is real. It is time to act.”

Power Shift 2011 {Videos — Gore, McKibben, DeChristopher}

I did a short preview of Power Shift 2011 last week. Unfortunately, living across the pond (and half a continent away), I wasn’t able to make it to the event. If you’re like me & wish you could have been there, here are a few great videos from the event, videos of wonderful speeches on global warming, climate change, and activism by Tim DeChristopher, Al Gore, and Bill McKibben.

Think Al Gore is Too Soft? Join This Climate Change Cult!

Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence, a handful of deniers manage to keep arguing about the existence, causes, and likely outcomes of global warming. Not to be outdone by this conventional irrationality, we have a few oddballs on the ‘believing’ side of the fence too. Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, a new-age religious cult based out of
