“Climate of Doubt” online live chat right now

UPDATE: PBS Admits to a “mistake” on my point about Dr. Edward Teller’s signature see below… Live chat on now – join in  (ended, my two questions were ignored, as were many others.) The producer and host of the “Climate of Doubt” Frontline program will be on a live chat at 1 p.m. ET. Good…

Why did PBS FRONTLINE electronically alter the signature of one of the world’s most distinguished Physicists in their report “Climate of Doubt’?

UPDATE: PBS admits to this as being a mistake, see below – Anthony Tuesday night as I watched the program, one of the documents on display during the interview with Dr. Fred Singer (who reporter John Hockenberry treated quite poorly with some editing tricks) caught my eye, because I saw it had been altered by…

Heartland comments on FRONTLINE ‘Climate of Doubt’

By Joe Bast – Executive director, Heartland Institute via press release OCTOBER 24 – On October 23, PBS’s “Frontline” program broadcast a special titled “Climate of Doubt.” The Heartland Institute had circulated a commentary prior to the program’s broadcast, which appears below, which said in part, “We hope the program is accurate and fair, but…

Heartland Institute Anticipates Unfair Treatment in Tonight’s PBS Frontline Special ‘Climate of Doubt’

Press release On Tuesday, October 23, PBS’s “Frontline” program will broadcast a special titled “Climate of Doubt.” It promises to go “inside the organizations” that helped turn the tide of public opinion, and then of elected officials, away from excessive concern over the possible threat of man-made global warming. The Heartland Institute is likely to…

Models Fail: Global Land Precipitation & Global Ocean Precipitation

We used NOAA’s CAMS-OPI satellite-era precipitation data in the post Model-Data Precipitation Comparison: CMIP5 (IPCC AR5) Model Simulations versus Satellite-Era Observations. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to isolate precipitation data for land and oceans with that dataset at the KNMI Climate Explorer. But there is another satellite-era precipitation dataset available at the KNMI Climate Explorer, and…

Model-Data Comparison with Trend Maps: CMIP5 (IPCC AR5) Models vs New GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index

UPDATE: I’ve added graphs of the difference between the observations and the models at the end of the post, under the heading of DIFFERENCE. #### We’ve shown in numerous posts how poorly climate models simulate observed changes in temperature and precipitation. The models prepared for the upcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment…

CMIP5 Model-Data Comparison: Satellite-Era Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies

Guest post b y Bob Tisdale As we’ve seen in numerous model-data comparisons, there are few similarities between modeled and observed surface temperatures and precipitation.  See here, here, here, here, and here for examples.  We’ve compared satellite-era sea surface temperature to model outputs in past posts (examples here, here and here), but we used model…

PBS Frontline climate change special cites bogus ‘consensus’

Guest post by Tom Harris Besides the obvious bias we have come to expect from most main stream media coverage of climate change, “Climate of Doubt“, aired Tuesday night on PBS’s Frontline, committed one serious mistake that can not be left unaddressed. Frontline repeatedly implied that there is an overwhelming consensus among climate scientists that…

Here comes the PBS smear courtesy of Andrew Dessler

Sigh, it is the same old tired hateful argument from Dessler about tobacco. On the plus side is shows how desperate they are to have to resort to this garbage.
