Climate Change Denial - Breaking the Holocaust Link

There has been an increasing amount of coverage lately about the (anticipated) death of free speech - about the demonizing of people who deny climate change.

This is a dangerous and slightly desperate trend, because it tends to remove climate science from the climate change debate. It also preys on journalists' darkest fears: that the scourge of censorship, once unleashed, will invade every aspect of their practice.

The most recent outcry in defence of climate change denial arose when the prestigious UK science body, the Royal Society, made the unusual public gesture of demanding that ExxonMobil stop funding organizations that attack the climate change consensus.

A dirtier, less safe world? Bank on it

The World Bank, which has invested over $25 billion in oil, gas and coal projects since 1992, when the Climate Convention was signed, has yet to learn the meaning of sustainability.  The Bank is now promoting the growth of coal and nuclear technologies as panaceas for developing countries.

Readers hit back at Sophomoric Province Newspaper

Seems we weren't the only ones who found the Vancouver Province newspaper's “look at the bright side of global warming” editorial on October 3rd more than a little immature.

Letter Published: Thursday, October 05, 2006

The bright side of climate change?
What is your editorial board smoking?
I too dream of palm trees and endless summer. However, I'm not deluded into believing that global warming will deliver any such thing. Droughts, flooding, extreme weather events, extinctions, desertification and rising ocean levels are all likely. It's long past the time for minimizing the state of our weather and environment, and I'm disappointed to see The Province continuing to do so. Your subscribers deserve better.
