Republicans Attacking Republican Climate Scientist & Threatening His Wife

  Surprising? Probably not. But it’s still absurd. Someone on their own team, an educated Republican, climate scientist Kerry Emanuel (and his wife) have been receiving attacks and threats via email. “Prominent MIT researcher Kerry Emanuel has been receiving an unprecedented ‘frenzy of hate’ after aΒ videoΒ featuring an interview with him was published last week by

Climate Deniers — to the Moon! (New Solution to Stop Global Warming)

  If only it were a viable solution. The idea did come up at aΒ round-tableΒ global warming discussion in California last week, though. More from Mark Hertsgaard over on Grist: The proposal came yesterday during a freewheeling panel discussion among California Gov. Jerry Brown, Virgin Group Chair Sir Richard Branson, and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

Hide the Decline! {VIDEO}

I shared this video as part of another post the other day, but it is a truly excellent video, so I wanted to feature it in its own post. The video was created about a month and a half ago, but as long as completely ridiculous understandings of climate science, climate scientists, and “climategate” prevail, it will be relevant… Check it out!

Climate Scientist (Another One) Speaks Up about Harassment & Threats (New Book: Global Warming and Political Intimidation)

Dr. Ray Bradley, one of the lead authors of the famous (and, to some, incorrectly infamous) study that included the “hockey stick” temperature graph, has spoken out about the harassment he’s received and attempt of some politicians to thwart scientific and societal promise.

USA Today: Climate Science Deniers are Like "Birthers"

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).

'Temperature Leads Carbon' Climate Denial Crock {VIDEO}

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. Β It’s only the most outrageous and dishonest cherry pick of all time.”

Climate Skeptic (& Republican) Who Learned the Facts..

I know how frustrating and disheartening it can be discussing climate science and politics with a so-called climate skeptics. I get comments from them on Planetsave daily (although, my guess is a lot of them aren’t actually human). Furthermore, though, I’ve got a good friend who is one. He’s caught up on conspiracy theory communities that spout climate change misinformation as some of their conspiracy theories (and don’t get me wrong, I believe a number of conspiracy theories, but the idea that thousands of climate scientists around the world are tricking the public for money or to create a “one world government” is not one of them).

Anyway, when I ran across this article on a climate skeptic who came around after actually researching the topic, it gave me a bit of hope for humanity and even some of the most die-hard climate skeptics.
