No Pause In Global Warming

One of the many bogus attacks on climate science coming from the right has been to say that global warming has not been occurring because there has been a pause. The “pause” was actually a slow down in the rate of warming, not a true pause in warming, and  a “pause” has only existed if […]

Quote of the Day: Letterman Corrects Donald Trump On Global Warming

“Donald Trump says today’s cold weather proves there’s no global warming.

This danger sounds trivial when compared to yet another BBC report on how zombies can destroy the human race. I’ve feared that zombies […]

EPA Issues Report on Dangers of Global Warming

Here’ something which would have never happened during the Bush years.

Bloggers Pile On George Will Following Global Warming Blunder
