Neil DeGrasse Tyson on CNN: And while we are on the topic, Carl Sagan, of the original Cosmos, on climate change: See also this from Chris Mooney at Mother Jones. And just for the heck of it, here’s my interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson from 2011.

Jan 2014 4th warmest on record.

Third warmest in Alaska since records began. Hot in China. Also, we may have a nut shortage. Video from WeatherNation:

Yes. Not only that, but we can’t separate climate change from any single weather event that ever happens, anywhere, no matter what. So just stop saying that we can’t. Here’s a thought experiment to explain why this is true. Imagine that climate science is like it is today with a few significant exceptions. First, humans…

Who What When Where Nic Lewis, an unaffiliated self described climate scientist, and a journalist, Marcel Crok, also unaffiliated, are known climate science denialists. The two of them have an objection to the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) conclusions regarding an important thing called “Climate Sensitivity.” Perhaps unable to get their work in the…

Very nice piece on MSNBC’s The Reid Report. Spread this around. Nice job, Michael Mann and Bill Nye.

There are few different, related, ways in which climate change, including anthropogenic global warming, can cause extreme weather events. One is that climate zones move. This may result in “normal” weather for a different location occurring elsewhere. For example, if southern warm air system shift north, than the frequency of low and high temperatures, and…

Nice coverage of climate change that is NOT A “DEBATE” ASSUMING SOME KIND OF DUMB FALSE BALANCE. Way to go, MSNBC. Thank you. Summer weather in Sochi, a record-drought in California and a polar vortex. The evidence for climate change is all around us. Bill Nye and Jeffrey Sachs talk about the climate debate and…

The following is also found HERE on the White House web site. I provide it here without comment because it speaks for itself. But if you want more, check out “Global warming action: good or bad for the poor?” by John Abraham, and “Keeping The Carbon In The Ground Elsewhere: Developing Nations” by me. Drought…

The famous Polar Vortex has come and gone in North America. Then, it came back. What a jerk. As I write this the outside temperature is 13 degrees below zero Fahrenheit, and tomorrow morning’s Bus Stop Temperature promises to be about –25F windchill here in central Minnesota. Meanwhile my Twitter stream is polluted with climate…

What Climate Change Denialism Looks Like

I generally ignore climate change denialists on Twitter. I use The Zapper to do that, and it works great, better than blocking. But sometimes I check my Twitter feed on something other than Chrome on my own desktop or laptop and then I see them, and occasionally engage. When I do, I often see troubling…
