For those of us who get a little panicked about the state of the climate - especially about the denial that is preventing action against anthropogenic climate change - Wednesday was a great day.

Bob Wright, a controversial sport-fishing magnate from Victoria, B.C., donated $11 million Cdn to the University of Victoria's School of Earth and Ocean Science.

PR 101: actions speak louder than words; ExxonMobil needs to walk the walk

UPDATE: guess all our good karma is coming back, this story has been running on ExxonMobil's Financial News page on Google all day!

Last week ExxonMobil chief spokesperson, Kenneth Cohen, was in London playing a bit of PR offense for the oil giant. Cohen went after Greenpeace for their recent report outlining the funding in 2006 that Exxon provided to 41 think tanks and associations.

These groups have been on the front lines of the war against the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing to humans as the cause of global warming.

We are all asteroid deniers

I have had this old article by global warming denier Fred Singer in my inbox for quite some time now. It appeared in the April 22, 1996 edition of the Washington Times.

It seems that if Singer had his way, we would have dropped all this climate change and ozone depletion nonsense a long time ago and got onto more important issues… like planetary defense systems against giant comets and asteroids.
