Smith had demanded to be given copies of all emails sent by a group of climate scientists working for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) relating to recent research […]

Federal climate scientists attacked, intimidated by GOP climate change deniers – and scientists are fighting back

Federal climate scientists attacked, intimidated by GOP climate change deniers – and scientists are fighting back

Idiocracy wasn’t a movie. It was a documentary. In June of this year, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) published research in the peer-reviewed journal Science. Their research was based on improved and more accurate land and sea temperature data that showed that the warming of the earth continues apace. This flies in the face of claims […]

GUEST POST: Congressional Republicans begin to move toward sanity on climate change with The Gibson Resolution

In mid-September, just prior to the U.S. visit of Pope Francis, a group of 11 U.S. members of Congress introduced a House Resolution that has become known as “The Gibson Resolution“, named after Rep.

President Obama’s stunning climate agreement with China derails GOP efforts to do nothing about climate change

For years, maybe decades, Republicans have told us repeatedly that nothing our country does will have any impact whatsoever on global climate change because: China.

Climate change denier and “scientist” GOP Congressman Dan Benishek: “I haven’t SEEN the science that proves it”

“I can’t SEEE-EEE you…” In a recent interview with ABC10, Republican Dan Benishek was questioned about his views on global climate change.

When it comes to climate change, health care as a right, & inequality, compromise isn’t possible — someone has to win

As America commemorated the 200th anniversary of the British burning down the White House during the War of 1812 last weekend, a scholar of that war offered a message for Americans who are alive today. Since he gave that message on C-SPAN II on a weekend afternoon during football season, I’m clearly the only person who received it. Thus it […]
