FEMA Stocked Press Briefing With Agency Shills

An internal investigation into a fake news conference staged by the Federal Emergency Management Agency during last month's California wildfires found that the agency's press secretary directed aides to pose as reporters, secretly coached them during the briefing and ended the event after a final, scripted question was asked, according to a senior FEMA official.

More than just a pain in the butt, those pesky speed bumps also hasten global warming

Canada’s housing agency has concluded that speed bumps not only fuel anger among drivers – who have to slow down to approach a bump, then speed up, then slow down for the next one – but also increase fuel consumption and cause more greenhouse-gas emissions than if they were traveling at a constant speed.

Democratic Candidates Unite Around Big Carbon Cuts

All of the leading Democratic contenders for the presidency are committed to a set of cuts in greenhouse gas emissions that would change the way Americans light their homes, fuel their automobiles and do their jobs, costing billions of dollars in the short term but potentially, the candidates say, saving even more in the decades to follow.

Forget science, we got ourselves a conspiracy theorist!

Forget any real science, when it comes to right-wing bloggers apparently all it takes to disprove an entire body of scientific evidence is the conspiracy theories of a retired weatherman.

The blog portion of Brett Bozell's Media Research Center, Newsbusters, ExxonMobil funded, echo chamber is today asking, “if the founder of The Weather Channel spoke out strongly against the manmade global warming myth, might media members notice?”

Yes Newsbusters, I'm sure the media will report on a retired weatherman's rantings about a global conspiracy of scientists and environmentalists.

The "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy" beating "Vast Left Wing" Voting for Best Science Weblog

UPDATE: there is only a 600 vote gap now, if you haven't voted please do so right away!

Its the last day of voting for the 2007 Weblog Awards and it looks like the leader in the “Best Science Blog” category at this point is “Climate Audit,” a bastion for those who actually still believe that global warming is natural and humans have nothing to do with it.

In other words, Climate Audit is a climate change denial website.

As with anything climate change, the whole affair has turned into a left wing blog vs. right wing blog fight for who can pull the most votes to their side.

Of course, I'm being totally unbiased when I say that the site “Bad Astronomy” which is running a very close second place right now to “Climate Audit” is definitely worth a vote or two (um, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, ya know what I mean)!

You can cast your vote here. (did I mention “Bad Astronomy”)
