Another Zinger from Singer: Can The Movie Be Far Behind?

In a new book, veteran skeptic S. Fred Singer claims that global warming is perfectly nature, unrelated to human-generated carbon emissions and caused by variations in solar intensity. Ooops!

Singer and his co-author, Dennis Avery, contend rising sea levels won't swamp coastal cities “because 90 percent of the world's remaining ice is in the melt-resistant Antarctic.” Ooops again!

Jimmy Inhofe: Don't Let the Slamming Door Hit You on Your Way Out

Before anybody gets uppity about the DeSmogBlog being partisan, we'd like to point out that some of our favourite people are Republicans (stand up California Governator and climate policy champ Arnie Schwarzenegger).

PR Guy Tim Ball in Love with Publicity? We Think Not

If Tim Ball, “Mr. Cool,” in the words of the Globe and Mail, was convinced of his comment in today's Victoria Times Colonist that all publicity is good publicity, you have to think he would have spent less time recently running away from the media. For example, CBC's Fifth Estate crew had to chase Ball all the way to Dawson Creek for a show that they're doing on climate change next Wednesday at 9 p.m.

Judge CEI "Experts" by the Company They Keep

In the history of protecting businesses from the inconvenience of environmental regulation, no example has been more obvious or objectionable than tobacco.

We know, without doubt, that the tobacco companies spiked their product with nicotine to increase its addictive qualities and lied about it. We know that they created phony grassroots organizations, like The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC)  to question the motivations of the Environmental Protection Agency and that they paid off scientists to take issue with the science.

Disaster deadline shortened for emission-cutbacks in new study

The world must slash greenhouse-gas emissions in ten years or face “significant risks of appalling global harm,” says the UK-based Institute of Public Policy Research. The report says the landmark Stern report, which warned of an economic collapse equal to the 1930s depression unless emissions were curbed, is “too conservative” and governments need to move further and faster, with carbon emissions reaching their peak by 2010 to 2013.
