Heating up the Northeast

A new report released by 50 top university and government researchers including one of the leading authors of the IPCC's report on impact and mitigation of global warming, has warned that the Northeastern United States could face severe weather changes if initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are not acted on.

Lengthy spells of over 100 degree heat, frequent and intense flooding, the disappearance of most ski resorts in the area as well as spruce and hemlock trees are some of the devastating effects that the forecasted temperature increase would produce.

Global-warming deniers shift gears in their distraction conspiracy

A column in a Seattle newspaper says growing consensus on human causes of climate change has forced deniers to switch tactics, abandoning shrill demands for scientific evidence – which is ample – for “drive-by shootings” such as exaggerated estimates of energy consumption in Al Gore’s house in Tennessee, or Prince Charles flying across the Atlantic to receive an environmental award.

A "Great Global Warming Swindle" Library

Check out this blog for a large collection of articles debunking the Great Global Warming Swindle.

There is then of course my favorite story (*note: explicit language) on Swindle director, Martin Durkin, and his rather explicit email response to two British scientists.

Here's the email exchange in its entirety. 

15-year old the latest wall in denier's echo-chamber

Google the name “Kristen Byrnes” and you'll see a lot of buzz over her recent musings about Al Gore and James Hansen.

Headlines like “15-year-old outsmarts NASA's global warming alarmist,” and, “Teenager takes on Global Warming Scientist” are popping up all over the smogosphere. The attention seems somewhat confounding, given that this 15 year-olds work isn't uncovering any earth-shattering news or data, or anything that hasn't been bounced around the global warming denier myth chamber a thousand times already.

Thanks for thinking of us World Changing!

The World Changing head-honcho, Alex Steffen, has come out with his thoughts on “The Best Climate Change Websites.”

I'm proud to report that Alex has chosen DeSmogBlog as on of the best!

This might have something to do with the fact that I just uncovered evidence that Alex used to be the PR guy for ExxonMobil!

Not really.

Thanks for the nod Alex, the feeling is mutual.
