Rick Santorum is running for President again, using old talking points from the last century. Santorum is claiming that climate change is a “hoax”, though he has never been able to point to any specific evidence of the supposed hoax.

Three Senate Democrats Join Climate Change Deniers

This week, Senator Bernard Sanders offered an amendment to S.1, Republican legislation to approve the construction Keystone XL tar sands pipeline across the American Midwest. The amendment didn’t require any action. It simply consisted of the reality and urgency of climate change, affirming the following points:

Despite the Hottest Year on Record, Global Warming Apologist Still Cries “No Warming”

“There has been essentially no global warming since 1998.” — S. Fred. Singer, December 29 2014

“Bullshit.” — NASA

Did NASA Climatologist Just Say We Will Have Global Cooling?

Lisa Haven, writing for the right wing web site Before It’s News, predicts a wide range of disaster for 2015. She forecasts “the rise of a One World Religion, an economic collapse, policed streets, and more Biblical end times signs… riots, earthquakes and likely numerous deaths“. Yet, the headshot that goes along with her byline […]

Challenge To Ben Carson Supporters On Climate Change

For a generation, Americans have disagreed about climate change. They have debated whether or not scientific data shows that Earth’s atmospheric temperatures are warming, and whether human activity is to blame.

Throughout it all, Americans have at least agreed on one thing: They have agreed that the issue of climate change is important to consider, […]

While Vicky Hartzler Fiddles, the Globe Burns: October 2014 was Hottest on Record

On November 2014, Republican member of Congress and global warming denier Vicky Hartzler noticed it was cold. This, she decided, was proof enough to ridicule the idea of global warming. So she took to Twitter:

 

Rep. Hartzler is in her 54th year on Earth. Someone so well-experienced with the seasons really should have […]

My Apocalyptic Climate Change Skepticism

I have been silent too long on this subject, worrying that the Speech Police are going to silence me. No more – I shall be brave.

I am a climate skeptic.

There, I said it.

I am a skeptic of wild assertions about climate change that have yet to be supported by good, solid science.

Climate Change Brings November Spring Flowers To The Northeast

For many years, I lived in the South. I can still remember the sense of wonder that I felt in late October, my first year there, seeing that there were still garden plants blooming outside.

Fast forward 20 years, and the South has moved North. I live just a couple of hours from the border […]

The Boundaries Of Skepticism About Climate Change
