Sen. McConnell on Climate Change: 'Each Side Has Their Scientists'

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) refused to weigh in on the issue of man-made climate change in a recent interview, giving it a wide berth ahead of his re-election battle in November. "Each side has their scientists, and they can all go in and argue," he told Politico in an interview published Wednesday, when asked if he believed humans contributed to global warming. The Kentucky Republican spoke more directly on the matter in March, when he told the editorial board of the Cincinnati Enquirer that he didn't believe in climate change science at all. "For everybody who thinks it's...

Climate Contrarians Overrepresented In Media?

There is an overwhelming consensus among expert scientists studying climate change that man-made pollution is the main cause of global warming.

In an opinion survey of nearly 1,900 scientists, 90 percent of the respondents with more than 10 peer-reviewed articles to their name “explicitly agreed with anthropogenic greenhouse gases being the dominant driver of recent global warming,” the study found.

Reducing our CO2 emissions is just hurting our plants

A prominent scientist and former NASA researcher has added his voice to those who challenge the “scientific fact” that manmade carbon emissions are causing global warming. Dr. Leslie Woodcock is a professor emeritus of chemical thermodynamics at the University of Manchester in England, with a Ph.D. from the University of London, and served as a senior research consultant at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Laboratory in Ohio. In an interview with Britain’s Yorkshire Evening Post, Woodcock declared: “The theory of ‘manmade climate change’ is an unsubstantiated hypothesis. “The theory is that CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel causes ‘global warming.’ In...
