"The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change" by Naomi Oreskes

"The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change: How Do We Know We’re Not Wrong?" by Naomi Oreskes

"This was a very well-financed, well-planned, highly orchestrated attack--campaign--against climate research, against climate scientists and climate science, and is part of the ongoing professional climate change denial effort."
-- Penn State Univ. Prof. Michael Mann, interview

Climate Change Denial

"All good scientists are indeed skeptical. Skepticism means applying critical thinking to all sides of a problem. It doesn't mean denying overwhelming evidence on one side and cherry-picking weak arguments against the consensus on the other side. Unfortunately, a lot of the individuals who might like to call themselves skeptics when it comes to climate change are nothing of the sort. They are contrarians, deniers, in many cases, they are advocates for the fossil fuel industry. You would be hard-pressed to find a legitimate, publishing, climate researcher today who would deny there is a detectable human influence on the climate now."

"There’s a well-organized campaign, primarily in the United States . . . , of bloggers, of people in the media, of basically professional climate deniers whose main goal is to abuse, to harass and to threaten anybody who stands up and says climate change is real – especially anybody who’s trying to take that message to audiences that are more traditionally skeptical of this issue." -- Texas Tech Univ. Prof. Katharine Hayhoe, News Report

"It's irresponsible government," Anderson said. "They're stating that they have their opinion, which, best I can tell, isn't based on science. By refusing to allow me to publish [my article], they're outwardly stating that they control what the public hears and doesn't hear. That's not scientific review, that's censorship. . . It is essential that the scientific results of this research be conveyed . . . most importantly to teachers who are responsible for informing the next generation of coastal caretakers." -- Rice Univ. Prof. John Anderson,

According to the report, ExxonMobil has funneled nearly $16 million between 1998 and 2005 to a network of 43 advocacy organizations that seek to confuse the public on global warming science. . . ExxonMobil has manufactured uncertainty about the human causes of global warming just as tobacco companies denied their product caused lung cancer. . . A modest but effective investment has allowed the oil giant to fuel doubt about global warming to delay government action just as Big Tobacco did for over 40 years." --
