Climate Denial Crock of the Week: They’re Coming for Your Children. Deniers Bring “Alternative Facts” to Education

Vice: Legislation proposed across the country since Donald Trump’s election threatens to bring climate change denial into the classroom under the guise of “academic freedom.” Currently, six states have legislative measures pending or already on the books that would allow anti-science rhetoric, including the rejection of global warming, to seep its way into schools’ curricula.

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Fox News, Where Climate Denial, Misogny, and Racism Rule

I’ve said it a thousand times. Like greenhouse gases, hate is a long lived pollutant. Climate denial and racism go together like peas and carrots. Obviously, recent events demonstrate that misogyny is an important part of the mix. Raw Story: Fox News anchor Kelly Wright on Wednesday held an emotional press conference in which he condemned the network’s

You’re Alex Jones. You lie about, among other things, climate, for a living. You sell quack “male-enhancement” products to your audience of hapless, aging, science denying, conspiracy-addled boobs. You claim the Sandy Hook massacre was faked – dead children and all. You had to apologize for spreading baseless nonsense about a Pizzeria-based sex slave scheme

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Reuters on RussiaGate

Again, not off topic, because the story of the Russian attack on democracy is the story of fossil fuel’s last attempt to hold back the final implosion of the carbon bubble. Been waiting for Reuters to put this on YouTube, but PBS beat them to it. The story – the official Russian plan to attack

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Could Pentagon Give Cover to Conservative Climate Creep?

And by Conservative Climate Creep, I don’t mean Lord Monckton. I mean the slow-walking, foot dragging, nose holding, spinach-eating kabuki theater of  republican legislators, increasingly beset by angry town hall crowds, where climate change has risen to the hot button level of the Affordable Care Act, Trump’s Tax returns, and possible treasonous connections to Russia.

Alex Jones is a climate denying right wing talker and major disseminator of the “Pizzagate” story, supposedly linking Hillary Clinton to a Pizzeria-based sex ring, and who believes the Sandy Hook Massacre, a shooting of school children in Connecticut, was staged.

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: It Does Happen. How Science Can Change Minds

Why a March for Science is a good idea. Sometimes we overthink about what it takes to change people’s minds. Obviously we can all do a better job communicating the science, and there are all kinds of pitfalls in navigating the psyche of climate denial, but sometimes the facts do work. I’ve seen it happen.

This is what a liar looks like. Washington Post: President Trump’s top environment official called for an “exit” from the historic Paris agreement Thursday, the first time such a high-ranking administration official has so explicitly disavowed the agreement endorsed by nearly 200 countries to fight climate change. Speaking with “Fox & Friends,” Pruitt commented, “Paris
