Nicely Balanced Look at Hurricane Influence

Here's a short Wired piece adding some balance to an earlier Wall Street Journal article that dismisses climate change as an influencer of hurricane intensity.

The WSJ piece is also worth the read. It's interesting to see Bill (if-I-haven't-observed-it-with-my-own-eyes, -it's-not-happening) Gray tie himself up in knots, predicting more hurricanes of higher intensity but denying that climate change could be a contributing factor.

John Locke Foundation launches a same-ol, same-ol North Carolina misinformation campaign

We'll never know whether the great empiricist John Locke would have been part of the global warming denial industry, but we can be pretty darn sure that the self-proclaimed “John Locke Foundation” (JLF) is.

The JLF is a well-heeled political organization based in North Carolina that has recently published a “North Carolina's citizen's guide to global warming” (pdf). The guide contains the usual global warming myths perpetuated ad naseum by the global warming denial echo machine; water vapor, medieval warming period etc.

Will We Step Onto a Cosmic Treadmill?

New research indicates that hacking the atmosphere – pumping microscopic particles into the stratosphere or clouds to block sunlight and offset global warming caused by greenhouse gases – is imminently possible.

The problem is: we could never, ever stop doing it.

Sorry Newsbusters, who's alarmist?

From the Brent Bozell oil-backed echo chamber comes a lovely screed today that clearly defines global warming “alarmism.” Or at least how it is defined by an organization devoted to outing the great Liberal conspiracy in the US media.

It also seems they're now resorting to sci-fi writers to “debunk” global warming.

And apparently, “debunk” in the mind of Newsbuster writer Noel Sheppard, has nothing to do with actual science, but the rantings of a sci fi writer named Orson Scott Card.
