JunkScience Lies: APS Offers Respectful Correction

Using methodology that Junkman Steve Milloy has refined over more than a decade, the pro-pollution website Junk Science today announced that the American Physical Society (APS) “has declared that there is no scientific consensus that humans are causing global warming.”

But a quick click on the APS website produces this:

The American Physical Society reaffirms the following position on climate change, adopted by its governing body, the APS Council, on November 18, 2007:

“Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth's climate.”

Isn't there a technical, legal and socially bruising word to describe when someone says something that is directly at variance with an observed, easily verifiable truth?

400 Prominent Scientists Dispute Global Warming - Bunk

Climate change denial lives - though not nearly to the extent that Swiftboater Marc Morano would have you believe in his latest wild overstatement about “prominent scientists” who dispute man-made global warming.

Morano's list of “over 400” alleged climate quibblers (which can be found today on a host of right-wingy blogs and websites) includes the usual discredited suspects, a crowd of amateurs and TV weather forecasters who can claim no “pominence” in scientific circles, and another group of real climate scientists who don't actually dispute human-induced global warming at all.

It's bunk, Marc. Bunk.

Jim Gooch Drinks Global Warming Denial Hooch in Kentucky

What do you get when you cross a puzzle-maker with a lawyer?

Apparently, in Kentucky at least, you get a legislative hearing by climate change “experts.”

Last week a committee meeting of the Kentucky Agricultural and Natural Resources Committee held a hearing on the science of climate change.

Problem was, there were no scientists.

The telling silence of Martin-Shulte and the Science and Public Policy Institute

Last week I wrote a piece about the people and organizations involved in the latest attack on the work of Dr. Naomi Oreseks. They were: Dr. Klaus Martin-Shulte, Christopher Monckton and Rob Ferguson, who was formerly employed by the oil-industry backed “think” tank, the Frontiers of Freedom. Ferguson now runs his own think tank called the “Science and Public Policy Institute.”

After exhausting resources on the internet, I had a few important questions left outstanding, so I sent emails to Ferguson and Martin-Shulte almost a week ago with no response as of yet.

Here are the questions I sent Ferguson…

Heartland Debate Challenge Update, May 3, 2007

DeSmog Debate Challenge

With the Heartland Institute being such passionate defenders of smokers' rights I thought for sure they would be interested in a debate on the subject.

After what we thought was some constructive dialogue towards making this event happen, the Heartland seems to now be playing a bit of duck and cover.

In the meantime, please enjoy some past posts we have done on the Heartland Institute or the entry for Heartland over at Sourcewatch.
