The ‘climate change debate’ is Science vs. Snake Oil

This is a Wonkroom repost.

According to the mainstream media, there is a controversy over the validity of climate science, in particular the conclusion that the warming of the planet by greenhouse gas emissions poses a risk to the public:

“Iceberg Ahead: Climate scientists who play fast and loose with the facts are imperiling not just their profession but the planet” “” Newsweek, 2/19/10

“Controversies Create Opening for Critics” “” Wall Street Journal, 2/17/10


“Series of missteps by climate scientists threatens climate-change agenda” “” Washington Post, 2/14/10

“Climate-Change Debate Is Heating Up in Deep Freeze” “” The New York Times, 2/11/10

Let’s take a look at who is on either side of this so-called climate-change debate:These Groups Say The Danger Of Manmade Global Warming Is A . . .FACTFRAUD

“FACT” organizations from Is There a Scientific Consensus on Global Warming?,“FRAUD” organizations are petitioners v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act.Reckless reporting from senior journalists is giving credence to a laughable concept “” that there is a global conspiracy by the world’s scientific organizations to deceive the public about the threat of global warming. In reality, industrial polluters are promoting baseless conspiracy theories to overturn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s scientific finding that greenhouse gases endanger the public health and welfare. Despite the smoke and snake oil from these polluters, the threat of manmade global warming is a fact.
