Global warming deniers guilty of attack on science Last Updated on 2013-11-30 21:21:55Jeffrey Bada is Distinguished Research Professor of Marine Chemistry at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. He ventured into the unruly other-world of climate science deniers and wrote about his experience in the very interesting newspaper letter below, in italics. Background on climate science deniers is HERE and HERE.
Global warming deniers guilty of attack on science
Jeffrey L. Bada 03:00p.m. Nov 28, 2013, updated 11:29a.m. Nov 27, 2013. U-T San Diego.
Following my North County Times and U-T San Diego letters to the editor on the relationship between rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and global warming, some subsequent letter writers praised me while others questioned my credibility.
This took a different twist after a letter from me that was published back in February 2013, when some individuals started to directly email me (I have now... More »

Bottom Line from Warsaw (CLICK HERE) - An interview of two climate scientists who are calling for what some may view as a shocking solution to the climate crisis: a rethinking of the economic order in the United States and other industrialized nations. Their names are Kevin Anderson and Alice Bows-Larkin. They work at the influential Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in England, as well as the... More »
Global Warming has NOT stoppedLast Updated on 2013-11-14 10:48:16GLOBAL WARMING HAS NOT STOPPED!
The fallacy "global warming has stopped" starts with a cherry-picked unusually high surface atmosphere temperature point in 1998 that resulted from a huge "El Niño", which basically transferred a lot of heat out of the ocean to the atmosphere. Following 1998, La Niña dominated, which transferred heat from the atmosphere into the ocean (and lately into the deep ocean). Looking only at the atmosphere and neglecting the heat transfer in and out of the ocean leads to the fallacy. The total warming of the planet (ocean + atmosphere) has been going up. Alternatively, if the El Niño/La Niña noise is subtracted out, or if the Arctic region is included, the global warming trend in the surface atmosphere is clear (see below). The scientific consensus is that with careful analysis there has been no pause in global... More »
FOI Abuse and Attacks on Climate Risk ManagementLast Updated on 2013-11-11 05:53:39FOI Abuse and Attacks on Climate Risk Management.
This topic is concerned with abuse of Freedom of Information Acts (FOI Acts) ultimately aimed at attacking responsible climate risk management. The backers are fossil fuel interests and right-wing libertarian supporters. Attacks on climate science is a main intermediary strategy. While FOI Acts generally protect the public, FOI is misused by some climate science deniers as a weapon with two main goals. First goal: Request many emails and documents to find a few isolated comments that are misinterpreted and used as fodder in right-wing media to attack climate science. Second goal: Harass targeted climate scientists, sometimes including intimidation, disrupt their work, and try to discredit them. Examples are documented below. Click to go to the original articles.
