“What Global Warming?” asks North Country New York. This Global Warming, answers NASA.

In a February 12 2015 letter to the editor of New York State’s North Country Now, an anonymous reader asks, “What Global Warming? Whatever happened to global warming? I feel short changed!”

You see, it’s been cold lately. How could that be if we’re experiencing global warming?

There are two answers to that question. The […]

A Very Cold Warming?

From where I sit as I write this, I can look outside through a window, and see, even in the dim light of this early hour, that it is very snowy, and very cold, outside. It is easy to forget, in these conditions, that last year was the hottest year for Planet Earth in the […]

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

Even S. Fred Singer, famous for his stretching of data to deny global warming, is having a hard time using 1998 any more; he has to insert the modifier “essentially” to his “no global warming” […]

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 […]

As Deniers Cry “Global Cooling,” the Globe Warms in Autumn 2014

At the WyoSkeptic blog, a new post has been placed in the “global cooling” category, a category that contains dozens of entries. WyoSkeptic’s latest post “shows” that global warming cannot be happening because the town of Gillette, Wyoming shows little change from 1978-2014.

The difference between Gillette, Wyoming over the past 36 years and the […]

The Coeur D’Alene Press – Global cooling to intensify in the next 15-20 years.

Breitbart News – Global Cooling: Fall Snowstorm Stalls Northeast

The Inquisitr – Vladimir Putin Has Russia Invading Ukraine Over Global Cooling

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.

What Global Warming? THIS Global Warming: World Just Had Warmest September on Record

“What Global Warming?” This is the question that conservative media pundits continue to ask. By asking the question rhetorically, conservatives invite you to think of the cool days of autumn and to forget the more general global trends. While the pundits play political games, the reality of global warming is all around us.

By now […]
