Despite last week’s UN report attributing some 90 per cent of global warming to human activity, the latest “Congressional Insiders Poll” of 113 members of Congress has found a sharp decline in the percentage of Republicans who believe it.

Is Big Gas Bashing Big Coal?

It's a shame that this National Review Online site doesn't provide some solid evidence for its charge that a Big Gas astroturf group is attacking big coal projects in Texas.

But the Clean Sky Coalition looks well-funded and is mounting a compelling campaign against the use of coal for electricity generators.

Dr. Tim Ball: The Lie that Just Won't Die

The deathless and - in many specific respects - completely fictional meanderings of Dr. Tim Ball have begun appearing again on right-wing blogs all over the net. At City Troll, at Convenient Untruth and at New Orleans Lady, the same tired and retreaded old climate rant paints Dr. Ball as the courageous victim of a plot to silence a well-meaning skeptic.

But Ball can’t even tell the truth about his own resume. His claim to be the first Climatology Ph.D. in Canada is a total falsehood; his degree was in historical geography - not climatology - and it was nowhere near the first ever granted to someone writing vaguely in the field.  It also was granted by the university as a doctor of philosophy, not the more prestigious “doctor of science” that Ball claims in these articles.
