Climate Denial Crock of the Week – “The Medieval Warming Crock”


Uploaded on Mar 29, 2009

The so called Medieval Warming Period is an article of faith among deniers.
But what does the “Supreme Court of Science” say?

Climate Denial Crock of the Week – That 1500 Year Thing


Uploaded on Feb 22, 2009

Climate Deniers S. Fred Singer and Dennis Avery make their living by confusing and obfuscating the science of climate change. Their latest book, “Unstoppable Global Warming every 1500 Years”, is a compendium of vintage as well as cutting edge climate crocks. Let’s find out who they are and how they are bamboozling their audience.

Many climate deniers still seem to think global warming was invented by Al Gore, in 2006.
As this recently uncovered recording from 1956 shows, the outlines of climate change science have been clear for many decades.

Isaac Asimov on the Greenhouse Effect: 1989


Uploaded on Jan 5, 2011

This video is part of a longer presentation at the Humanist Institute in New York in 1989, and it demonstrates yet again that the broad outlines of the climate change story have been understood for decades by, well, intelligent men who are guided by science.
It’s been a recurring theme in this series – that the science was essentially complete long before Al Gore, long before the IPCC, long before the Hockey Stick.

NOAA Ocean Acidification – The Other Carbon Dioxide Problem


Uploaded on Jan 2, 2012

Fundamental changes in seawater chemistry are occurring throughout the world’s oceans. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) from humankind’s industrial and agricultural activities has increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. The ocean absorbs almost a third of the CO2 we release into the atmosphere every year, so as atmospheric CO2 levels increase, so do the levels in the ocean. Initially, many scientists focused on the benefits of the ocean removing this greenhouse gas from the atmosphere. However, decades of ocean observations now show that there is also a downside — the CO2 absorbed by the ocean is changing the chemistry of the seawater, a process called ocean acidification. This change in the ocean’s chemistry will have profound effects on life in the ocean, and those who depend on it.
