The Trauma of Accepting the Truth: Why Climate Sceptics Are Like Religious Fundamentalists

Kester Brewin | Posted 03.03.2014 | UK
Kester Brewin

Like the early church, what we need are politicians and leaders with the courage to live out the future as it has been revealed to them. It is time to move on from debate to action, hoping that we are not too late, but also, paradoxically, welcoming the trauma of more violent demonstrations of climate change at the doorsteps of those who continue to resist what deep down they probably already know.

'Global Warmin'- We Got Six Foot O' Snow!'

Temperatures of -350C and less across the US, snow in Texas, Canada brought to a standstill by snow, and immediately the comments on the stories online are "what about global warming now?" If you read the comments you would believe that more than 90% of the population are "climate change deniers".

Climate Change, Accept the Science and Act

It is high time we accepted the science - climate change is real and man-made - and started to implement energy saving measures in everything we do. We need to embrace renewable energy and in so doing drastically cut our emissions of greenhouse gases.

The Top Ten Ukip Arguments (And Why They Are False)

Immigrants are not a strain on the public sector, austerity is. Moreover, if Ukip truly believe that "Britain is full", should the party be urging its members to stop procreating? Same-sex relationships would surely be far more patriotic?

While the terrible devastation wrought by Typhoon Haiyan focused the minds of many delegates attending the United Nations climate change summit, which ended at the weekend in Warsaw, Poland, it also exposed the unscientific and inhumane ideology of many 'sceptics'.

There hasn't been a single, factual, long-form programme about climate change on any mainstream television channel in the UK for over a year. This is one of the key findings of a recent research report published by the International Broadcasting Trust analysing non-news television coverage of the environment.

Is a World Powered by Renewable Energy Possible?

Ever pressing environmental changes; soaring temperatures, rising sea levels and depleting natural resources, means that sustainability is not just something to be talked about hypothetically over the dinner table. It needs to happen, and soon.

Hinkley Point: Nuking the Idea of a 'Renewables-Online' Future

Ben Acheson | Posted 24.12.2013 | UK Politics
Ben Acheson

Whether man-made climate change is occurring or not, there are few who would argue against a move towards low-carbon energy generation. One way or another, carbon emissions must be cut. Forget the tired anti-nuclear rhetoric and the ridiculous claims that a Fukushima-style disaster could hit the UK. Third generation nuclear is the way forward and the new reactors planned at Hinkley Point are the first step in the right direction.

Scrutinizing Climate Data Through the Tube of a Toilet Roll

On Monday, having rested on Sunday, I took a cold look at the quality of the reporting of the IPCC across all English Language newspapers. Using the Nexis News Database I took a quick look at how the IPCC was actually reported last week, not how I thought it had been and was going to be reported.

Morally Outrageous Tactics by Climate Change 'Sceptics' to Try to Discredit New Report

Bob Ward | Posted 04.12.2013 | UK Politics
Bob Ward

The IPCC report is likely to prompt many governments to take more action to tackle climate change. It is perhaps no surprise then that climate change 'sceptics' who do not want any limit on the burning of fossil fuels, the main source of greenhouse gas emissions, have been mounting increasingly desperate attacks to try to discredit the IPCC summary and to confuse the public and politicians about its contents.

Climate Change and the Student Fightback

Aging Tory ministers might be in denial about the reality of climate change and the urgent need to tackle it, but students and young people aren't. We are increasingly aware of the dangers climate change poses for our future and that's why it should come as no surprise that the rising environment movement is young, vibrant and determined to play our part in tackling this huge challenge.

Huge Blow to Campaign by Climate Change 'Sceptics'

Bob Ward | Posted 23.09.2013 | UK Politics
Bob Ward

The new Met Office paper this week casts serious doubt on the low estimates of climate sensitivity. It points out that a doubling of atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide directly causes a 1°C rise in global average temperature. However, warming the atmosphere causes it to hold more water vapour, which itself is a powerful greenhouse gas. This positive feedback increases the warming by a further 1°C.

Climate Denial as a 21st Century Conspiracy Theory

Dom Aversano | Posted 26.08.2013 | UK Politics
Dom Aversano

Climate denial rests on the assumption that 97% of climate scientists who believe climate change is caused by human behaviour are wrong, and, remarkably, a small group of mostly journalists, politicians, business people, and general non-scientists - many with strong links to the fossil fuel industry - have managed to disprove the link between human behaviour and climate change, and in doing so unearthed a global science conspiracy.
