I try not to reference any one source in the same week but every now and then it happens- someone on my reading list finds back to back items that just scream for me to pass on.
There is a lot of confusion about climate change and global warming among the general population, driven in part by the efforts of right wing think tanks like the Heritage Foundation
who use oil industry money to sow doubt, fear, and misinformation through the media. They've developed an extensive array of reasonable sounding but factually devoid arguments and blasted them out wide and deep across the American and world landscape. They get allies in the mainstream media (hello Fox News) and the Republican establishment to parrot those lines to their respective audiences. If your a neighbor, co-worker, college pal, or uncle count themselves in the denier camp and starts arguing with you about how we're actually heading into an ice age
, a quick visit to Skeptical Science on your iPhone will let you swat them down handily with facts.
