There's More Global Warming Coverage on Your Television 28.1.2015 Mother Jones
Here's some good news: According to a new study, the major broadcast news networks are covering climate change more than they have in years. Now here's the bad news: Much of that coverage includes misleading arguments from commentators who reject the scientific consensus that humans are warming the planet. The new analysis is set to be released Wednesday by the liberal group Media Matters for America. (Disclosure: I used to work there.) Media Matters reviewed 2014 climate coverage from the evening newscasts and Sunday morning talk shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox Broadcasting Company. All told, the networks devoted 154 minutes to global warming last year—up 19 percent compared to 2013 and far more than any year since 2009. That increase is a big deal. Millions of Americans watch the networks' evening news shows. And the Sunday shows—ABC's This Week, CBS' Face the Nation, NBC's Meet the Press, and Fox News Sunday—frequently set the agenda for the week's political reporting elsewhere in the media. The ...

Abbreviated pundit roundup: Climate change, Social Security and more 27.1.2015 Daily Kos
Eric Roston at BusinessWeek examines the issue of climate change and the politics behind it all: The political patter during blizzards has long been predictable. Here's what's interesting these days. As climate science becomes more confident, it may be making the U.S.'s weird strain of climate contrariness less viable. The tide is turning for American conservatives when it comes to climate change, a trend encouraged most vividly by extreme weather events, such as California's relentless drought, the Colorado floods of 2013, or Hurricane Sandy. Or less frequent and more powerful winter storms. Most moderate Republicans -- 62 percent -- understand that global warming is happening, according to a poll this month from the Yale Project on Climate Change Communication, which conducts research on American public opinion. An even higher percentage of Republicans said they support carbon dioxide as a climate pollutant. Sixty-two percent of moderate Republicans agreed to strict limits on emissions from coal-fired ...

Whoops! Republicans wreck their own argument that big snowstorms mean global warming can't be real 27.1.2015 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Massachusetts State Police have a sense of humor. Expert predictions of the Nor'easter storm call it "historic" and "life-threatening." Meteorologists are saying the Northeast, including Boston, Philadelphia, Providence, and New York City will get two, perhaps three, feet of snow from the storm. Officials are telling people to go home. Or, if they already are, to stay there. Quite sad for Republicans. Up until last week, large numbers of them were still denying that climate change was happening. And then, in a bit of tricksy voting on an amendment to the bill that would fast track the Keystone XL pipeline, all but one Senate Republican said they accept that climate change is actually occurring. The majority weren't willing to accept that humans are the cause of this change, but they moved off their longtime claims that no change is taking place. Okay, they say, it's happening, but it's not our fault. Because, you know, only God can change the climate. Or so says the chief denier, Republican Sen. Jim ...

Waterbirds respond to global warming. 27.1.2015 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Health News
While many of our articles concentrate on raptors or rare species, the birds we look at tend to duck the more obvious species of waterfowl. In the case of the beautiful smew, a lot of work has gone into investigating every country it migrates through on its long journey across Eurasia. Gathered together by Diego Pavon-Jordan from the Finnish Museum of Natural History and NOWAC, this ornithological group have established valid links between global warming and a switch in an animal’s habits of migration.

Attention GOP Presidential Candidates: Winter Does Not Disprove Global Warming 26.1.2015 Mother Jones
Snow is falling across the Northeast, and millions of people are preparing for a massive blizzard. Due to the extreme winter conditions, my colleague at Climate Desk has issued the following advisory: PSA: Big snowstorm ≠ proof global warming is a hoax. — Tim McDonnell (@timmcdonnell) January 26, 2015 It may seem obvious to you that the existence of extreme winter weather doesn't negate the scientific fact that humans are warming the planet. But that's probably because you aren't a climate change denier who's contemplating a run for the GOP presidential nomination. Last year, for example, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) weighed in on the issue. "It is really freezing in DC," Cruz said during a speech on energy policy, according to TPM . "I have to admit I was surprised. Al Gore told us this wouldn't happen!" Cruz said the same thing a month earlier, according to Slate : "It's cold!…Al Gore told me this wouldn't happen." And here's former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on his Fox News show, after a major blizzard back ...
