Denying Climate Change; Urging Inaction

This is the text of a letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper from 60 “accredited experts” who deny the reality of climate change. See the next post for additional information on the reliability of this group:

90 Canadian Climate Scientists Plead for Political Leadership

Ninety of Canada's most accomplished and reputable climate scientists have sent a letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, pleading for sensible policy to address the impend threats of climate change.

Bringing Climate Censorship Home to Canada

 It appears that the Canadian government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is joining the U.S. governmental campaign to stifle intelligent discussion about climate change. The  CBC story appended below describes Harper's government preventing a Canadian public servant from speaking about a novel that he wrote on his own time – about an issue on which he is an established expert.

They were mum when subsequent articles and books by Ross Gelbspan libelously labeled [skeptical] scientists …as stooges of the fossil-fuel industry….[and] when [a European skeptic] was tarred by Bert Bolin, first head of the IPCC, as a tool of the coal industry…”

“Observational evidence does not support today's computerclimate models, so there is little reason to trust model predictions of the future,” write 60 climate skeptics, many of them bankrolled by the carbon industry.

(Oh. The glaciers are melting, the ice caps are dissolving, deep oceans are warming, violent weather is increasing and the timing of the seasons is changing – and it must be due to the fact that earth's temperature has flatlined! – RG) (Open Letter from 60 climate skeptics to Stephen Harper)

 

Industry On-side; Government Off-side

The six biggest energy firms in the U.S. appear before Congress to plead for carbon caps and Grist's Amanda Griscom Little does a nice job on the coverage.
