IBD Notes Three Global Warming Stories The U.S. Press Has Ignored

December 27th, 2015 10:17 AM
Yesterday, I noted that Associated Press reporter Karl Ritter actually wrote, and AP actually published, a story about how complying with the Paris climate agreement would require greenhouse gas emissions "To Drop Below Zero." Perhaps Ritter, whose beat includes "cover(ing) climate change, from UN negotiations to Arctic melt," looked around and realized that if he didn't put out something…

Global Warming Skeptics Rebut Face the Nation Segment on Climate Chang

May 27th, 2013 10:23 AM
CBS's Face the Nation Sunday spent fifteen minutes discussing climate change and amongst other things its impact on tornadoes - in particular the EF-5 that hit Moore, Oklahoma, last week. As not one global warming skeptic was invited to participate in the panel, I've taken the liberty of getting opinions from some of the leaders on the realist side of the debate (video follows with commentary…

Was 'Hottest Year on Record' Based on Phony Data

January 8th, 2013 10:33 PM
Not Even Close: 2012 Was Hottest Ever in U.S. So declared the New York Times in an article almost dripping with self-righteous jubilation. This sentiment was also echoed at the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Reuters, and many other media outlets. But could they all end up eating globally warmed crow? According to Anthony Watts of Watts Up With That? that is exactly what they might…

PBS Attacked for Allowing Global Warming Skeptic to Speak

September 19th, 2012 9:41 AM
If you had any doubts about the level of zealotry involved in today's global warming movement, they likely will be erased by the goings on at PBS the past few days. Since allowing well-known climate realist Anthony Watts on NewsHour Monday to voice his views on this controversial issue, PBS has been under attack for doing so (videos follows with transcripts and commentary).

NYT: 56% Trust Weathercasters More Than Gore On Global Warming

March 30th, 2010 10:10 AM
"A study released this year by researchers at Yale and George Mason found that 56 percent of Americans trusted weathercasters to tell them about global warming far more than they trusted other news media or public figures like former Vice President Al Gore." So wrote the New York Times's Leslie Kaufman in a rather surprising piece published Tuesday. Shhh. Wait. It got better -- A LOT better:

December 5th, 2009 2:15 PM
The Climatic Research Unit at the heart of the ClimateGate scandal sought funds from Shell Oil in the year 2000.Other e-mail messages obtained from the University of East Anglia's computers also showed officials at the school's CRU solicited support from ExxonMobil and BP Amoco, although the nature of this support was not identified.As climate alarmists and their media minions love to claim that…

Al Gore Photoshops Hurricanes Into New Book's Cover

November 19th, 2009 2:54 PM
UPDATE AT END OF POST: Gore prominently quotes Deuteronomy, "I’m offering you the choice of life or death."The cover of Nobel Laureate Al Gore's new book "Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis" was intentionally doctored to exaggerate the appearance of hurricanes in the northern hemisphere as well as reduce the amount of ice present in the Arctic.Maybe even more ominously, Florida was so…

Weather Channel Founder: Sue Al Gore to Expose Global Warming Fraud

March 4th, 2008 10:22 AM
By now most people are aware that the founder of The Weather Channel, John Coleman, said global warming is "the greatest scam in history" last November.On Monday, while speaking at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change being held in New York City, Coleman took his criticisms further by advocating that all those involved in the sale and marketing of carbon credits, including Al Gore…

NOAA: Global Warming Not Causing More Destructive Hurricanes

February 21st, 2008 5:30 PM
One of the cornerstones of climate alarmism is that global warming is causing stronger, more destructive tropical storms.If you don't believe me, just ask the Global Warmingist-in-Chief Al Gore.Well, on Thursday, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration issued a press release that should make the Nobel Prize committee demand Gore immediately return his award and their money.As…

'60 Minutes' Preempted This Sunday for Global Warming Hysteria

January 19th, 2008 11:34 AM
Fortunately, most people will likely be watching the Giants-Packers game Sunday evening, and will therefore miss the one-sided hysteria. However, for those that mysteriously don't switch channels after the Chargers-Patriots game, CBS will offer a special about global warming this Sunday instead of "60 Minutes." How marvelous. The CBS News website hysterically described this installment of "…

More Weather Station Shenanigans Media Won’t Report

November 19th, 2007 8:50 PM
Will a television news magazine like "60 Minutes," "20/20," or "Dateline" ever devote an entire segment exclusively to the horrid state of America's weather stations?Given the incessant reports of rising temperatures threatening to kill us all, wouldn’t a lengthy exposé into the accuracy of the devices at the heart of the matter be of interest to a population frightened to drive their cars,…

Is NASA’s Hansen Playing Enron Accounting Games With Climate Data

September 17th, 2007 2:25 PM
Since NASA's James Hansen finally released computer codes related to how climate data are collected and adjusted, anthropogenic global warming skeptics around the world have been waiting to see what a scientific examination of this information would produce. On Monday, Canada's Steve McIntyre, who himself debunked Michael Mann's ridiculous "Hockey Stick" theory as well as identified Hansen's Y2K…

NASA’s James Hansen Finally Releases Climate Data Computer Codes

September 8th, 2007 4:00 PM
Much as when the organization he leads quietly made changes to the United States historical climate record at the prodding of Climate Audit's Stephen McIntyre, James Hansen of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies finally released critical computer codes scientists have wanted for years, but did so with absolutely no official press release. As a result, not one media outlet covered this…

More Than Half of Analyzed Weather Stations Don’t Meet Federal Guide

August 30th, 2007 10:26 AM
As members of Congress debate sweeping legislation to address climate change, shouldn't it be newsworthy that of the roughly 25 percent of the weather stations analyzed by independent, non-government volunteers, more than half appear to not meet federal guidelines involving their placement? Well, meteorologist Anthony Watts, the owner of Watts Up With That, speaking at a climate conference in…
