The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the “world’s leading authority” on the issue with scientists from 113 nations, was released this morning.
And as the NY Times reports, it’s “the first time the group asserted with near certainty — more than 90 percent confidence — that carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases from human activities were the main drivers of [global] warming since 1950.”
How is the conservative global warming denial community responding?
We learn from The Guardian (via Think Progress) that the ExxonMobil-backed American Enterprise Institute is offering $10,000 to scientists and economists who submit articles attacking the report — a report wholly based on peer reviewed science.
And conservative publisher World Ahead announces via email today, “Kid’s Book Debunking Global Warming Wanted” calling for “manuscripts on the topic of global warming intended for children aged 6-10”.
Such a book will presumably delight America’s children as much as World Ahead’s other classics, “Help! Mom! There Are Liberals Under My Bed!”, “Help! Mom! Hollywood’s in My Hamper!” and (I’m not making this up) “Help! Mom! The 9th Circuit Nabbed the Nativity!”
