 Koch-brothers-funded study confirms climate change
Koch-brothers-funded study confirms climate change
a new and methodologically interesting study, carried out by people some of whom might have been expected to take a somewhat sceptical view on the issue, seems essentially to have confirmed the results of earlier work on the rate at which the earth’s temperature is rising.

 Utah passes bill denying global warming
Utah passes bill denying global warming
The original version of the bill dismissed climate science as a "well organised and ongoing effort to manipulate and incorporate "tricks" related to global temperature data in order to produce a global warming outcome". It accused those seeking action on climate change of riding a "gravy train" and their efforts would "ultimately lock billions of human beings int... read full post picked by cecilberman 2 years ago

 Forams Can Provide a Record of Ancient Climate
Forams Can Provide a Record of Ancient Climate
These microscopic creatures have been around for 550 million years. Because of their abundance in ancient sediments and their sensitivity to different environments, oil companies hire paleontologists to examine forams in rock samples to help them decide where to drill. For similar reasons, forams also are useful indicators of past climate change. picked by AutumnLotus 5 years ago

Nine of Out Ten Climate Denying Scientists Have Ties to Exxon Mobil Money
Once you crunch the numbers, however, you find a good proportion of this new list is made up of a small network of individuals who co-author papers and share funding ties to the oil industry. There are numerous other names on the list with links to oil-industry funded climate sceptic think-tanks, including more from the International Policy Network (IPN) and the Marshall Institute. picked by zircon77777 6 months ago

A Superstorm for Global Warming Research
Plagued by reports of sloppy work, falsifications and exaggerations, climate research is facing a crisis of confidence. How reliable are the predictions about global warming and its consequences? And would it really be the end of the world if temperatures rose by more than the much-quoted limit of two degrees Celsius? picked by 2manyusernames 2 years ago

A new book reveals how a handful of scientists, who have pushed flawed theories on global warming for decades, now threaten to take us back to the Dark Ages.

The world has already been through two of its coldest winters for decades, with signs that we may be entering a third, the scientific case for CO₂ threatening the world with warming has been crumbling away on an astonishing scale. picked by bingo 2 years ago
