How Climate Deniers Follow in the Footsteps of Big Tobacco (VIDEO)

1 of 3 videos provided from the Climate Reality project after 24 Hours of Climate Reality is below, an excellent expose on how the climate change denial ‘movement’ is following in the footsteps of the tobacco is good for you movement (narrated by Bill Nye). Check it out:

Rick Perry Mistaken, Galileo Was a Liberal

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:

Yes, Climategate was Science Denier B.S.

For what I think is the 7th time, independent review has found that Dr. Michael Mann’s work is completely scientifically sound and that climate gate was only a crime in that someone broke in and stole over a decade’s worth of emails (and then someone else used them to try to frame climate scientists.. and quite successfully did so.)

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!

Cartoonist Tom Toles Slams Republican Global Warming Deniers

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 β€œ1,000,000th 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"

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?

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).

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.
