Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Nuclear Power Joins the Walking Dead

Nuclear proponents keep talking about “new” nuclear, technologies that will finally meet acceptable standards of safety, while providing insurance against weaponization and nuclear proliferation. Nobody’s actually building that tech yet – meanwhile, the realization has set in among even the most enthusiastic proponents, that, while the zero carbon energy from nuclear is a desirable commodity,…

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: In UK, World’s Biggest Wind Turbines Set New Standard

8 MW turbines. That’s a big machine, but not nearly the upper limit. Offshore power coming of age is a real game changer. Big implications for more traditional power sources. They are, of course, not American, we’ve given away that leadership. Thanks climate deniers! Guardian: The planet’s biggest and most powerful wind turbines have begun

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Katharine Hayhoe: Because I Care about People, I Care About Climate

Katharine Hayhoe is one of my favorite people in climate science. She’s so much nicer than I am, and that’s helped her become one of Time magazine’s “Top 100 Influential People”.  Above, one of her most recent interviews. I spoke to Dr. Hayhoe in 2012, when she had just barely become sort-of almost famous.  She told

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Dark Snow Project at 5 Years: Looking Back

Poking around the Dark Snow Project Facebook page – came across this picture I had not seen before, taken by Mackenzie Skiles during the first Dark Snow expedition, in 2013. That’s myself with Jason Box, at the apex of our stay in Greenland, we caught a break in the weather, and managed to Chopper-sprint up to

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Useful Idiots: Climate Deniers “Unwitting” Agents of Russian Influence

Unwitting. Best defense you can make for someone who is both one of DC’s dumbest climate deniers, and apparently for years, an “unwitting” agent of Russian influence. As the Russiagate disaster plays out, it will become clear that Russia’s aim has been to remove US sanctions and clear the way for unlimited exploitation of huge

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: Dilbert’s Dimwitted Denial. Sad.

What happens when cartoonists lose sight of their original inspiration? Things get ugly.

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: As Climate Deniers Block Federal Action, New Energy Booms in States

Funny thing about new technologies – once they become viable, cost effective, and compelling – keeping people from using them is pretty hard. No matter how much fossil fuel funding and propaganda is deployed. So, while the Trump administration will do its best to sabotage American leadership in the renewable revolution (not a slam dunk at

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: “Fake But Accurate” Advice for Trump – as Staff passes Climate Crocks as Real Info

Followers of my early videos will remember how easy it was to take apart the Crock – ICYMI, above. Ironically, given current events, the video opens with a shot of Richard Nixon. So, fake science for the POTUS, as he passes real, deadly serious top secret intel to hostile foreign enemies. That’s where we are. The

Climate Denial Crock of the Week: UPDATED: Why Do Climate Deniers Hate Puppies? (and other living things)

Seriously. Puppies. And other living things. UPDATE May 15, 2017: Washington Post: The Trump administration has removed or tucked away a wide variety of information that until recently was provided to the public, limiting access, for instance, to disclosures about workplace violations, energy efficiency, and animal welfare abuses.

If you’ve been watching the news lately, you know that all over America, Congressional and Senate representatives are being grilled on the unpopular components of the Donald Trump program.
