The NOAA chart FoxNews put up is discussed here.
In January I went on Neil Cavuto’s show because it was cold outside. Today — barring a last-minute cancellation (which happened last week) — I’ll be going on again around 4:05 thanks to the Senator even the Washington Post mocked as “the last flat-earther.”
UPDATE: Yes, Cavuto kept me on about twice as long as usual, but then proceeded to cut me off repeatedly, which I confess I wasn’t prepared for because he hadn’t done this before. Next time I’ll have a different strategy. I’ll let the comments from the Fox crowd run since it is important to get that perspective every once in a while — and it also helps you see what you’re missing on all those other blogs that have been taken over by the anti-science crowd!
The news “hook,” I think, is that Sen. James Inhofe (R-OIL) has a new report out (click here if you must) — mostly a tired rehashing of the email story in an attempt to give it a second wind and tie it to the IPCC story.
If he can rehash his disinformation, I can rehash actual information from scientist (see below).
I’d be most interested in any suggestions for snappy soundbites. I may even have a surprise!
- Nature editorial: “Nothing in the e-mails undermines the scientific case that global warming is real “” or that human activities are almost certainly the cause.”
- Exclusive audio of press call today with Michael Mann, Gavin Schmidt, and Michael Oppenheimer on “Climate Science: Setting the Record Straight”
- Must read AP analysis of stolen emails: An “exhaustive review” shows “the exchanges don’t undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.”
- The American Association for the Advancement of Science reaffirms “The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society”; “The pace of change and the evidence of harm have increased markedly over the last five years. The time to control greenhouse gas emissions is now.”
- American Meteorological Society reaffirms “that the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface are warming; that humans have significantly contributed to this change; and that further climate change will continue to have important impacts on human societies”¦.”
