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.

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

WSJ Non-Climate-Science Propaganda Eviscerated by Climate Science Facts

Evangelical Christian & Climate Scientist Writes Chapter for Gingrich Book, Gets It Pulled

  Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is one of the more well-known climate scientists in the U.S. these days. One reason is that she’s not your typical scientist; she’s an evangelical Christian and Republican. Another key reason for her relative fame is that she’s a climate scientist (an atmospheric scientist) in Texas (at Texas Tech University) and has gone

How Global Temperatures Predictions Compare to What Happened (Skeptics Off Target)

Skeptical Science has another great post up this week that I just have to repost in full (which includes some pretty wicked graphics). It takes a look at how various climate scientists’ predictions ended up comparing to what we’ve actually seen. As you’ll be able to see, several skeptics basically failed, while leading scientists such as Dr. James Hansen (a regular climate activist, as well as the top climatologist at NASA) and those at the IPCC did pretty darn well. Here’s a repost of Comparing Global Temperature Predictions:

Secretary of Agriculture: "Hard to Explain" How Anyone Could Not Tell the Climate is Changing

Yes, with heat records in the U.S. and elsewhere being set like there’s no tomorrow, disaster records being set in a similar manner, and a little bit of 1 plus 1 equals 2, it’s hard to believe anyone would not believe climate change is already happening. Add on the following chart on who has stated global warming is happening and who hasn’t and one really has to wonder what Tea Partiers are smoking (since it is mostly just Tea Partiers who are still denying the science).
