Global Warming Denial Machine


Please read A Response to Climate Change Denialism by Richard Somerville, a distinguished professor emeritus and research professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, and also Global Warming Deniers and Their Proven Strategy of Doubt and then continue below.

The sections below highlight the AGW Denial Machine and its efforts to try to convince policy makers and the general public that the massive scientific evidence for man-made global warming is either false or a “hoax”. Many of these denialists are supported by the fossil fuel industry and other companies that stand to lose money if the world gets “greener”. However, there are many well-intentioned people who just do not “believe” that humans can cause the world’s climate to change because they either do not have access to the peer-reviewed literature (where climate experts communicate their research) or, if they do, they find these journal articles too difficult to read. Instead these well-intentioned people seek their information from more user-friendly avenues such as Websites, books, television, and radio. The problem is that these portals are not typically where the experts in climate science publish. Instead, these are the portals where “misinformation” can be easily spread. Please view the Suggested Reading page where I have listed Web documents, blogs, and books that will provide the current scientific research in a fairly easy to read format (which is the goal of this Website).

    Misinformation at Forbes Magazine by Larry Bell

    Letter I sent to Forbes magazine in reply to: http://www.forbes.com/2010/12/23/media-climate-change-warming-opinions-contributors-larry-bell_print.html

    Dear Mr. Bell,

    It is surprising that a magazine that purports to inform business readers would allow you to misinform on such an important financial issue such as manmade climate change. Most of what you wrote is either flat-out wrong or highly misleading. For example, despite your claims, more than 90% of the world’s glaciers are melting, sea levels globally are still rising, and the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season was extremely active with 19 named storms, 12 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes blowing away 2009 which had only 9 named storms. The 2010 numbers are double normal values.

    Scientists, military and intelligence experts, and health experts all agree there is overwhelming evidence that humans are causing major climate disruption mostly caused by increasing heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide. It is precisely for this reason that the insurance companies are planning for the coming problems that climate disruption brings while also trying to educate their clients about the advantages of a shift to a low-carbon economy so that they may seize the economic opportunities of clean energy. I suggest you read the following statement by 268 investors – both asset owners and asset managers – that collectively represent assets of over US $15 trillion.

    These large financial companies certainly disagree with your opinion but they do agree on the facts.

    An fascinating concept this. I’m 1 of those men and women whom tend to wait for things to mature prior to taking action but in this case I’m mindful that inaction leads to only failures so I will heed your comments and begin to do anything about it.
