Global climate change is no laughing matter. In fact, it’s a tragedy, and one that is compounded by the relatively effective misinformation campaign waged by shills of the energy industry.

The facts Stephen Colbert cites here are, ironically, accurate. This is an instance when satire speaks the truth well.

And here is where Stephen interviews Radiohead on the subject.

    Climatologists are computer modelers who use carbon tax promoting fraudulent data to get the results that their carbon tax promoters want

  5. Based on everything we know about climate science, the basic game plan is that if we want to limit global warming below 2 degrees Celsius (or 35.6 Fahrenheit and avoid the most dangerous and unpredictable impacts), we’ll need to prevent the amount of carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere from rising above 450 per million. Currently, we’re at about 392 per million. So we’ve got some wiggle room, right? Actually, no, according to the International Energy Agency’s new 2011 World Energy Outlook The key issue here is something known as “infrastructure lock-in.” The coal plants that countries like China and India are constructing right now are going to last another 50 years, at least. The energy-inefficient buildings we’re erecting will stay up for some time. Every gas-guzzling SUV that gets built will likely get sold and then driven for at least a decade. Which is just a way of saying there’s a lag built into our energy infrastructure. It’s not easy to turn off the carbon…

  13. – a one sided view? Are you a moron? These speakers are the ones doing the research. This panel exists to inform people of the FACT that is global climate change. “One sided view” implies there is another side to the argument.. If this side is full of people who know what they are talking about, what does the other side contain?

    Considering the condition of the economy worldwide, it’s not surprising that people everywhere are complaining about the high cost of gasoline. Outside of that, everyone is also upset about global warming’s negative environmental effects. In general, what individuals want is a car that burns less gasoline and therefore helps to fight global warming. No related posts.

  25. Okay mahn….will try anew…
    My points here are:
    1: Materials scientists who try to model much simpler phenomena are skeptical of climatologists genius for modeling a construct (average weather in an arbitrary region over and arbitrary interval of time).
    2. Few sources weigh out the detriments vs. the benies of warming vs. whatevah.
    3. Convection moves more heat in the atmospere than radiation by a factor of at least 100 to 1.

    The House of Representatives’ Science and Technology Committee is hosting a hearing on climate science today. In fact, it’s just about right now. This hearing has been convened by Democrats and is generally being looked at as a preemptive strike against Republican-led climate hearings next year. There will be a lot of scientists giving testimony—and (unsurprisingly, if you know the science) most of them will be talking about the widely accepted data showing that global climate change is happening—but there will also be several skeptical witnesses. The first is Judy Curry—a scientist who isn’t skeptical about climate change, itself, but does have some legit critiques on specific claims made about what impacts climate change will cause. The other two are scientists I’m less familiar with—Richard Lindzen and Patrick Michaels. From quick research, neither denies climate change is happening, they just think the impacts will be so minor as to not really matter much. If…
