America Is Only Nation Where Climate Scientists Face Organized Harassment

This wonderful piece of Journalism comes from “Inside Climate News”,  author, Katherine Bagley, 10th September 2012.

“While outspoken scientists of human-caused climate change in the United States endure torrents of freedom of information requests, hate mail and even death threats from skeptics, their counterparts abroad have been free to do their work without fear.

Imaginative feature on Paul Nurse: A Redoubt of Learning Holds Firm

Bizarrely Sir Paul conflates scientific skepticism with superstition and taints CAGW skeptics with anti vaxxers and fear of modernity. CAGW hysteria is doing more damage to science and society that even religious zealotry has done and that is desperately dangerous. See this item for a direct quote from the IPCC’s Working Group I disclaiming an ability to predict future climate states and the linked examination of probable climate sensitivity to enhanced greenhouse effect, drawn directly from Earth’s natural greenhouse effect and too trivial to worry about or even detect amid the noise of natural variation.

Josiah Neeley: Environmentalism’s Sword: Protectionism

Environmental Guilt Is Big Business

39% of Americans feel ‘green guilt’ for wasting food, a much higher number than letting the sink run while they brush their teeth or not buying those stupid low-flow toilets.

USDA panel gets altered-crops pay plan

For the life of me I can’t understand why we pander to the organic scammers. Are we to compensate snake oil salesmen if beneficial products are mixed with fakes? Not a good idea?

In fact it is supposed to be the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and entirely coincidental that the organization is densely populated with anti-democratic big “S” Socialist anti-capitalist zealots.
