BBC News: "Arctic melt releasing ancient methane"

Simplified: The ice melts, methane trapped under the ice bubbles up, the temperature rises, and the weather gets more strange.

About that $2.99 gasoline promise...

Just watch and listen:

And compare what Fox "News" said in 2008 and in 2012:

In case you wonder why the winter was mild...

"ABC News Explains Warm Winter, 'Wild Swings In Weather', Driven by Global Warming, Only Going to Get Worse"

Now, watch the deniers waffle over this one...

Climate Change Denial In Action

Okay, you have to read the individual articles about this.

First, Britian's "Met Office" (or "Meteorological Office"), which handles weather reports for the country, issued a news release about Climate Change, stating "Decline in solar output unlikely to offset global warming".

Then, the British paper The Guardian ran their own report on the news release, entitled "Sun's changes unlikely to slow global warming, scientists say".

Then, the Daily Mail, a paper with a noted conservative bias, spun the whole story around, with the title "Forget global warming - it's Cycle 25 we need to worry about (and if NASA scientists are right the Thames will be freezing over again".

In a rare act of bravery, the Met Office brought the Daily Mail to task with their rebuttal:

"Today the Mail on Sunday published a story written by David Rose entitled “Forget global warming – it’s Cycle 25 we need to worry about”.

This article includes numerous errors in the reporting of published peer reviewed science undertaken by the Met Office Hadley Centre and for Mr. Rose to suggest that the latest global temperatures available show no warming in the last 15 years is entirely misleading.

Despite the Met Office having spoken to David Rose ahead of the publication of the story, he has chosen to not fully include the answers we gave him to questions around decadal projections produced by the Met Office or his belief that we have seen no warming since 1997."

Judge who ruled for Monsanto now works for that company

"As courts and bureaucrats continue to assert that citizens have no fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice, we find Monsanto lurking nearby. The Wisconsin judge who recently ruled that we have no right to own a cow or drink its milk resigned to join one of Monsanto’s law firms. Former judge Patrick J. Fiedler now works for Axley Brynelson, LLP, which defended Monsanto against a patent infringement case filed by Australian firm, Genetic Technologies, Ltd. (GTL) in early 2010."

1896 - The First Global Warming Hypothesis

I doubt the deniers will bother to read this but the Anthropogenic Global Warming 'conspiracy" is not new. The first hypothesis was made in 1896 by Nobel Prize winning Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius.
