DeSmog hanging with Chris Mooney

Here's a photo from a recent visit we had with Republican War on Science author Chris Mooney. Chris was in town to attend a panel discussion on global warming and the state of the media that was co-sponsored by DeSmog and the UBC School of Journalism.

Chris is back in Washington, DC now, putting the final touches on his new book, Storm World: hurricanes, politics and the battle over global warming.

Green Sheets: We're Not All Doom and Gloom

You know, there's more to global warming than debunking sceptics. The goal of this site is to “clear the PR pollution”, but there's always time and space to talk about solutions, too.

That's why we added a new section to the site: Ross Gelbspan's Green Sheets:

In publicizing climate solutions at every level, The Green Sheet is inspired by the belief that our greatest natural renewable resource is human ingenuity. We created the problem, and we are also the ones who can fix it.

Also check out Ross's vision for a path to climate peace . We hope that it's a way forward.

"The Great Global Warming Swindle"

Here's a tart review of the above-named UK Channel 4 TV program that aired last night. The review, by Climate Outreach and Information Network executive director George Marshall, comes complete with background information and links on the usual suspects who will go to any lengths to deny the science of climate change. It sounds like the show was pretty much what we would have expected: lots of hyperbole, zero reliable science.

If Congress were to cut $1.4 billion a year in subsidies, as House Democrats urge, the industry would still get more than $37 billion a year from government coffers, four times the amount spent on the nuclear industry and six times the am spent on ethanol.
