Carbon Tax Bill introduced by Rep. Stark Last Updated on 2014-04-11 21:04:00 Stark Introduces Carbon Tax Bill to Reduce Emissions, Deficit 
CBO Says Carbon Tax is Most Economically Efficient Way to Cut Carbon Emissions WASHINGTON October 24, 2011 - Congressman Stark (D-CA) announced the introduction of the Save Our Climate Act, H.R. 3242.

The Debunking Handbook Last Updated on 2013-10-22 21:43:19 THE DEBUNKING HANDBOOK Ever wonder how to debunk the fallacious pseudo-science of the climate contrarians / faux-skeptics / deniers in an effective manner? John Cook and Stephan Lewandowsky give us the tools from the cognitive literature on how to “debias” people — how to enable people to give up on contrarian misinformation and to update their memories with new, and more accurate scientific information. To start, here is a useful graphic: Ref: http://sks.to/pspi Misinformation and its correction continued influence and successful debiasing, Psychological Science in the Public Interest  13(3) 106-131 ----------------- Here is the text: Debunking Handbook(function() { var scribd = document.createElement("script"); scribd.type = "text/javascript"; scribd.async = true; scribd.src = "http://www.scribd.com/javascripts/embed_code/inject.js"; var s =...
