Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Climategate/Russiagate: More Parallels

I’ve been shouting to anyone that will listen about the parallels between 2009’s “Climategate” and the hacking of emails in the 2016 election.  I brought it up in a call to national NPR show 2 days after the election. Still stand by it – and it’s worth another listen. It seems clear to me, and

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Reposting: Why Has the GOP Become the Party of Ignorance, Anti-science, Denial, and Hatred? This Audio is Essential Listening.

This might seem off-topic, but it’s really not, because it gets to the roots of the cultural division we have in the US, a division that wasn’t created by the Republican party, but which, since the 1960s, has been consciously targeted, amplified, and exploited for electoral gain. (strong caution: frequent use of the N word)

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: If Trump Admin were Concerned about Racism, they would Drop this USDA Nomination

Post-Charlottesville, the Trump administration has protested that they have never supported racism or racist beliefs.   The President’s own history of pushing Birther conspiracy theories belies that, of course – but it might help if they dropped their latest nomination for a US Dept. of Agriculture Science post – a “Chief Scientist” who is not

Facebook – Katharine Hayhoe PhD:  In listening to politicians talk about climate change, we are often encouraged and hopeful when one who previously said, “it isn’t real” changes their tune to “it might be, but even if it is, it isn’t bad”.
