Comments Off on US House Science Committee tweets climate denial propaganda

Last week, the official Twitter account for the US House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology tweeted a link to an inaccurate and hyperbolic article published by Breitbart – the far-right, white-nationalist-supporting news outlet that spawned Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s chief strategist. The tweet proclaimed: “Global Temperatures Plunge. Icy Silence from Climate Alarmists.” It should go without saying that the linked article was deeply misleading . The piece was based on a misleading Daily Mail story by climate denier David Rose, which used satellite measurements of atmospheric temperatures over land only (completely ignoring the oceans that make up 70% of the planet) to argue that global temperatures had actually dropped over the course of 2016. Of course, if you look at the complete dataset that Rose cherry-picked his information from, you’ll clearly see a long-term warming trend, with 2016 set to become the hottest year in recorded human history. This isn’t the first time the House Science Committee has tweeted dubious material. Just the day before the Breitbart tweet, the account posted a tweet accusing a climate change support group of valuing “politics & emotion over facts.” It’s not the first time the account has tweeted links to anti-climate articles from Breitbart, either. Related: Donald Trump denies saying “climate change is a Chinese hoax”- but his own Twitter account contradicts him It’s deeply troubling that an official US government account would be posting such biased and poorly-sourced articles to begin with, but the fact that it’s the “science” committee makes matters even more frightening. If our legislators can’t be bothered to understand the science underlying important environmental policy , how can we be expected to take effective action against climate change? Unfortunately, with the Trump administration readying to take office, this problem is likely to get worse before it gets better. Via Ars Technica Images via William Warby and Joakim Berndes

Comments Off on Climate denier David Koch steps down from New York science museum board

David Koch has left his seat on the board of directors of the American Museum of Natural History . Climate scientists have been calling for the conservative oil billionaire to get his fingers out of science museums, and people are celebrating Koch’s resignation as a victory. In 23 years on the board, Koch has made over $20 million in donations, and has dinosaur halls named after him, but he and his brother have also reportedly given over $70 million to organizations that attempt to refute climate studies.

James Inhofe: Barbra Streisand Created ‘Climate Change Hoax’

Comments Off on James Inhofe: Barbra Streisand Created ‘Climate Change Hoax’

When the Republicans take control of the Senate in January, one very, very terrifyingly dense individual is going to be handed the keys to the environment committee—Senator James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), an 80-year-old climate denier who is so sure that God controls the world’s climate, not humanity, that he’s more prepared to believe Bible passages than the scientific consensus —to quote Inhofe, “as long as the Earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.” But just how dense is Inhofe, you ask? Oh, it gets better. Much, much better. Related:  Petition: Don’t Put a Climate Change Denier in Charge of U.S. Environmental Policy!

Image credit: Flickr , M. Karshis Where I live in Southeastern Pennsylvania garden vegetables lie unharvested, rotting in the mud. Lancaster farmers will be hard pressed to harvest their corn and uncovered firewood piles are ornamented with white fungus. We have it good compared to Texas, though. Farmers and wildlife in the Lone Star State face a bleak future brought on by sustained, extreme drought. Texas Governor Rick Perry is more focused on fanning the flames of climate denial than addressing the loss and misery. No matter that the shadow of extreme drought roughly outl… Read the full story on TreeHugger
