ThinkProgress Claims It Didn’t Try To Torpedo Climate Scientist’s Career

ThinkProgress’s editor in chief pushed back against claims he coordinated efforts to take down a climate scientist who had previously written pieces critical of global warming.

“There was no organized campaign to damage his career,” Judd Legum said Thursday about Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr., who was the subject of an email released Oct. 20 by WikiLeaks. The memo comes from a trove of hacked emails from Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account.

The Latest Global Warming Threat: Trick Or Treating

Environmentalists have decided that letting kids trick or treat on Halloween is increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and the only solution is for the activists to get more money to fight it.

Environmentalists suspect that candy eaten by trick-or-treating kids probably generates a lot of CO2 and therefore isn’t sustainable. The environmental website TerraPass even encourages parents to “start a new trend and skip the candy handouts, opting for more sustainable treats as a greener way of participating in the festivities. Instead of candy coated, sugary bites, offer up little storybooks, crayons, playing cards or toys.”

DiCaprio’s ‘Before The Flood’ Drowns in Sea of Green Hypocrisy

dicaprio-btfLeonardo DiCaprio claims his new film will illustrate the dangers of climate change.

Before the Flood is a new “documentary” that chronicles DiCaprio’s carbon-spewing journey across the planet, where he relies on natural disasters to prove that global warming is occurring and catastrophic.

The Oscar-winning actor speaks to scientists, politicians, and academics who provide dramatic soundbites about man-made global warming, but he fails to include a single quote from the thousands of scientists, politicians, and academics who vehemently disagree with these soundbites.

How many scientific papers just aren’t true?

cartoon-peer-reviewWe’re continually assured that government policies are grounded in evidence, whether it’s an anti-bullying programme in Finland, an alcohol awareness initiative in Texas or climate change responses around the globe. Science itself, we’re told, is guiding our footsteps.

There’s just one problem: science is in deep trouble. Last year, Richard Horton, editor of the Lancet, referred to fears that ‘much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue’ and that ‘science has taken a turn toward darkness.’

Dominance Of Solar, Cloud Climate Forcing Since The 1980s … With CO2 Only A Bit Player

earth_spaceAccording to the IPCC (2007), changes in climate occur as a consequence of variations in the Earth’s radiation budget (solar energy absorbed by versus leaving the surface).  Changes in the Earth’s radiation budget occur for 3 primary reasons; two of those three reasons involve solar forcing.


Global climate is determined by the radiation balance of the planet. There are three fundamental ways the Earth’s radiation balance can change, thereby causing a climate change:

Up To 50% Of Govt-Funded Scientific Research Is Totally Flawed, Says New Report

labGovernment funding is leading to scientific research that can’t be replicated, according to a new report detailing growing problems in the scientific community.

Published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), the report illustrates how scientific research is susceptible to bias when it is funded by the government and how a considerable number of scientific studies cannot be replicated or reproduced. As a result, government policy based on the research isn’t based on scientific methods and cannot be accepted as fact.

gina mccarthyThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rushed a major water regulation to appease the political ambitions of the White House and environmentalist allies, according to a report by congressional investigators.

Regulators based the “waters of the United States,” or WOTUS, on politics rather than science, according to the report. WOTUS expands federal power over bodies of water, including those on private property.
