Here's What Today's Primary Voters Think About the Planet's Most Important Issue 26.4.2016 Mother Jones
Residents of five northeastern states are voting Tuesday in crucial presidential primary contests. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has a chance to all but clinch the nomination with a strong showing. On the Republican side, Donald Trump is looking for massive victories that could put him one step closer to securing a majority of the delegates at the GOP convention in Cleveland. The presidential election will, of course, have enormous implications for a range of issues—but some of the biggest consequences will relate to the fight against global warming. Clinton essentially wants to continue Obama's climate policies. Her opponent, Bernie Sanders, wants to go even further by enacting a carbon tax . Trump and his closest rival, Ted Cruz, are both outspoken climate change deniers . John Kasich is somewhat less extreme on the issue but has still made contradictory statements about the science, and he refuses to commit to any meaningful action . But what do the voters think? Back on March 1—as a dozen ...

The Dithering Dozen: Twelve Prominent Climate Deniers 25.4.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Back in 2007, arguably the most leader-like thing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin could have done was her executive order establishing a state "Climate Change Sub-Cabinet." Her order reads, "Climate change is not just an environmental issue It is also a social, cultural, and economic issue important to all Alaskans." She went there. But nowadays, with the knob on her cray-cray meter cranked up to eleven, she says  climate change is a hoax . This week, she metaphorically donned an Alaskan tinfoil toque to pitch Climate Hustle, a new climate denial documentary. "We're told by fearmongers that global warming is due to man's activities and this presents strong arguments against that in a very relatable way," she said in an interview with the political journal Variety Daily. Then, as I stewed about how shedding one's rationality has become a cherished political talent in America, I ran down the list of politicians and media figures who, in playing to their conservative base, have abruptly decided that everything ...

How hot is the earth now? 25.4.2016 The Earth Times Online Newspaper - Environment News
We worry now a lot more than before about the planet’s surface temperatures. Now the Arctic is defrosting and sea levels even affect your seaside holiday, perhaps it is too late. But given the unprecedented talking about carbon limitations and political action, the classic crunch could come next year, when there could be a slight cooling. If not, we can’t blame El Niño, as we do for this year’s record breaking.

WTF: Fox Says This Stuffed Armadillo Means Global Warming 'Is Nothing To Worry About' 24.4.2016 Crooks Liars
Fox News on Sunday invited self-styled climate expert Marc Morano to explain how a stuffed armadillo could prove that climate change was a hoax. "This is significant," Morano said after revealing a stuffed armadillo in a cage. "The armadillo was the only animal that was used a mascot for global cooling in the 1970s... It's not a mascot for global warming. They're claiming the armadillo is migrating north to get out of the heat." "With global warming, they have a learning curve," he insisted. "They're trying to go much further in the future when the people making the predictions will be dead." According to Fox News host Steve Doocy, climate activists like Prince Charles sounded "like Jack Bauer, we're running out of time." "As it turns out, we didn't run out of time," he quipped. "There's nothing to worry about with global warming," Morano agreed. "So say the top scientists around the ...

Bill Nye Just Told Us Exactly What He Thinks of the Republican Candidates 23.4.2016 Mother Jones
Bill Nye—who taught a generation of kids the wonders of science with the help of a bow-tie and a catchy soundtrack—is taking a somewhat different tone with the politicians debating climate policy. His message: "Quit ya bitchin'; let's get to work." In recent days, Nye has tussled with Sarah Palin (who thinks she's " as much of a scientist " as the Science Guy) and has challenged a prominent global warming denier to back up his rhetoric with cold, hard cash, offering a $20,000 bet that 2016 will be one of the top 10 hottest years on record. In this week's episode of the Inquiring Minds podcast , he talks with co-host Kishore Hari about congressional gridlock, the 2016 presidential campaign, and his new role as a "lightning rod" in the struggle against those who reject climate science. Those skeptics may be vocal, but they represent a dwindling percentage of the population. According to Gallup , nearly two-thirds of Americans now agree that recent warming has been caused mostly by human activity. You ...

Australia’s lack of action on pollution reduction targets has made the country a laughing stock on the international stage, according to senator Larissa Waters

The federal environmental minister, Greg Hunt, has joined leaders from 170 other countries in New York to sign the Paris Agreement to limit global warming by at least 2C.
