Why So Gloomy [about climate changes]?

Richard Lindzen, MIT in Newsweek International

Judging from the media in recent months, the debate over global warming is now over. There has been a net warming of the earth over the last century and a half, and our greenhouse gas emissions are contributing at some level. Both of these statements are almost certainly true. What of it? Recently many people have said that the earth is facing a crisis requiring urgent action. This statement has nothing to do with science. There is no compelling evidence that the warming trend we’ve seen will amount to anything close to catastrophe. Read article here

Commerce Department puts gag order on government meteorologists

Environmental News Agency

An order has been issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce that controls what federal government climate, weather and marine scientists can say to the media or in public, even when they are speaking as private citizens. Under rules posted Thursday, these federal scientists must obtain agency pre-approval to speak or write, whether on or off-duty, concerning any scientific topic deemed “of official interest,” according to agency documents released by a national association of government employees in natural resources agencies.  See Full Story Here

Too much hot air over climate change

With the ready availability of An Inconvenient Truth and the lazy, very poor, one-sided journalism in the network specials and coverage of global warming by Blakemore, Bazelle, Pelley, O’Brien, Brokaw and Cullen and in the press by Borenstein, Kolbert and others, we felt it important that you hear and see some of the alternative thinking on the issue as presented in the recent UK TV4 documentary that created quite a stir called the Great Global Warming Swindle. Unfortunately after millions of people viewed it on google and then youtube, the show was pulled for copyright infringement and must now be purchased from WAGTV4 Click here to buy the show. Still free though is the five part series produced by The Friends of Science in Canada, Climate Catastrophe Cancelled
