Media Matters Smear of ICCC9 Speakers = Epic FAIL

Gotta feel sorry for the poor writers at Media Matters with their “Climate Denial Goes Vegas” attempt to smear all the speakers at the 9th International Conference on Climate Change in Las Vegas a few days ago. Their very first major wipeout was the title they chose for their smear, but they would not have had prior knowledge of how Lord Monckton was going to destroy the “denier” label there. With regard to me, Russell Cook, your humble Panel 9 “Communicating Climate Change: The Blogosphere” speaker, our friends at Media Matters made 6 errors in 4 line categories in their pathetic attempt to trash me.

Steyer-Bloomberg-Paulson Risky Business Project Too Busy to Defend Its Science

Former Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson was on the PBS NewsHour last Wednesday night, explaining on behalf of his new Risky Business Project how much of an economic catastrophe inaction on solving global warming could be. Since I already had a set of tough questions to pose to organizations that otherwise proceed on the premise of man-caused global warming as settled science, I fired off those to Risky Business Project to see what result I’d get. Watch what happened in this case. Continue reading

Ross Gelbspan is Still Not a Pulitzer Winner (not even for just 4 Days) [*5/6/14 update, an ongoing label fumble]

Jacoby on Preaching to the Unconverted.

Jeff Jacoby writes for the Boston Globe and he is a conservative.

Imagine being a conservative columnist for a NYT owned Boston newspaper. And Jacoby is not a fake conservative like the NYT David Brooks.

Here Jacoby talks about his 20 year life as a writer of opinions. He relates the nature of putting an opinion on paper and the responses he gets.

I found his approach or attitude to be similar to mine.

I offer opinions based on experience, education and scholarship and what I adopted as a philosophy of life.

We may start off as tabula rasa, but when we write as adults, not so. When we express opinions we tell our story and reveal ourselves and we hope to inform and influence our readers. Worth while–humans are social creatures.

No Loss: Science reporters becoming an endangered species — But almost all are dodos, anyway

“Without journalists to uncover stories and speak to authoritative sources, the public loses,” says an editor. But science is not received wisdom. Virtually all science reporters have yet to figure that out. Who-says-what isn’t important. What’s important is how they know what they claim. Continue reading
