That is, shows like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” have been focusing on global warming in the past week. Beer jokes We don’t usually get a lot of laughs out of climate change, a topic that gets precious little airtime, even on the broadcast news shows. But comedy shows riff off the news, and there has been a lot of climate science in the news recently, especially the grim report from a United Nations science panel predicting enormous weather disasters by 2040, well ahead of previous estimates. And then there was Mr. Trump, who gave an … [Read more...] about Climate Change Is No Joking Matter. Except, This Week, It Was.
By Collin Eaton NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Pumping carbon dioxide into the air makes the planet greener; the United Nations puts out fake science about climate change to control the global energy market; and wind and solar energy are simply "dumb". These are among the messages that flowed from the America First Energy Conference in New Orleans this week, hosted by some of the country’s most vocal climate change doubters - and attended by a handful of Trump administration officials. The second annual conference, organised by the conservative thinktank the Heartland Institute, pulled together speakers from JunkScience, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and the Center For Industrial Progress, along with officials from the U.S. Department of Interior and the White House for panels that included: “Carbon Taxes, Cap & Trade, and Other Bad Ideas,” “Fiduciary Malpractice: The Sustainable Investment Movement,” and “Why CO2 Emissions Are Not … [Read more...] about At ‘America First Energy Conference’, solar power is dumb, climate change is fake
THE LIGHTBULB Hikers take a rest with a view on the Aletsch Glacier at the Eggishornn summit in Fiesch, Switzerland. One of Europe's biggest glaciers, the Great Aletsch coils 14 miles through the Swiss Alps — and yet this mighty river of ice could almost vanish in the lifetimes of people born today because of climate change. (Reuters/Denis Balibouse) Last week, I wrote a story about how the staff of Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt turned to advocates outside the agency to help craft a “red team-blue team” exercise. The proposed military-style exercise would have pitted two teams of experts against each other to debate the large body of science showing that human activity is warming the planet. To sum up the story in a succinct headline, I wrote: "Emails show EPA turned to climate skeptics to craft ‘red team-blue team’ exercise." The story, however, sparked an entirely different debate. As I soon learned, … [Read more...] about The Energy 202: Why climate scientists want to be thought of as the real ‘climate skeptics’
0 Have your say From: Kate Smith, Potter Hill, Pickering. LORRAINE Allanson’s letter in support of fracking captures why it is so hard for all of us to respond appropriately to climate change (The Yorkshire Post, April 18).Despite a few weeks that have veered between the Beast from the East to unseasonable heatwaves, the ‘weirding’ of the weather is still only a passing inconvenience. But it is changing radically and nearly all climate scientists tell us we don’t have anything like several decades of ‘very comfortable lives’ left to change – 20 years is pushing it. The second problem is a sense of powerlessness: as Lorraine rightly says, fossil fuels are everywhere. As I learned at a recent conference on climate and the heritage industry, the most positive thing the public can do about climate change is talk about it: those most worried (women under 30) are the least likely to mention it. We have seen how the public response to Blue … [Read more...] about YP Letters: Fracking – the climate change clock is ticking
