Sorry Gunter, Even Fox News Doesn't Buy the "Global Cooling" Myth

Here's an opinion piece by Lorne Gunter that ran in yesterday's National Post about “global cooling.”

Even Fox News doesn't buy into this myth that is propped up as somehow refuting the current science around climate change.

A bare-faced lie - from a predictable source

There is nothing particularly unusual about current weather and climate change – it is generally well within long-term normal patterns. – Tim Ball, CFP, July 20, 2007

Auto Industry on a Very Slow Learning Curve!

 

In the auto industry, there’s one thing you can always count on: if a new environmental or safety rule is proposed, executives will prophesy disaster.

From the New Yorker:

A few years later, when Congress was thinking about requiring fuel-economy standards, auto executives warned that instituting such standards would create '“massive financial and unemployment problems.' And now, with Congress debating a bill to raise fuel-economy standards, for the first time in almost twenty years, the Chicken Littles are squawking again, forecasting doom for Detroit and asserting that making higher-mileage vehicles is technologically unfeasible and economically suicidal.”

A Yellow Flag on Warming from a Most Unlikely Source

Talking about climate change at a Formula One race might at first glance seem like praising celibacy in a brothel.

The world's top motor sport competition is for many the epitome of gas-guzzling wastefulness with powerful engines burning nearly a litre of fossil fuel per kilometre. But a growing number of team bosses say they want to make Formula One a high-tech pioneer and leader in fighting climate change rather than a whipping post.

You Can't Spin Mother Nature

This is the speech that I delivered last month at the Canadian Public Relations Society's National Conference in Edmonton, Alberta.

Is Fox News finally turning the Climate Change Corner?

Fox News has always been the sweetheart media source for the global warming denial industry, but this web-article published today on the Fox News site might just be a first step towards pulling their collective head out of the sand.

Yes, the story does quote the typical global warming skeptics like William Gray and Richard Lindzen, but the overall tone of the article is atypical for Fox.

Check it out. What do you think? Keeping in mind where they started, is Fox News slowly meandering down the right path?

Maybe it was this hugely popular video that finally shook their heads a bit.
