Rebuttal to Phil Elder's 'Primer on Global Warming'

This is the FoS rebuttal to Phil Elder's article published on TroyMedia July 28, 2014. Elder wrote many incorrect statements about climate, falsely concluding that human-caused CO2 emissions are dangerous. We rebut his assumptions using empirical evidence.



The Globe and Mail’s Environmental Bias is Showing

The Globe and Mail recently ran an article about Friends of Science’s latest press release featuring an image of our new billboard which stated that “Global warming stopped naturally 16+ years ago.” The Toronto newspaper relied on incorrect assumptions to smear Friends of Science instead of reporting on content. We also challenged a letter from Greenpeace which threatened corporate officers for alleged ‘climate denial’ and announced a report entitled “Power. Full Benefits” that rebuts the Pembina Institute’s push for a renewable energy strategy in Alberta.



Corbella: Pause in Global Warming Upsets Religious Believers

Calgary Herald columnist and editorial page editor Licia Corbella wrote this article about the presentation by Dr. Ross McKitrick at the Friends of Science 11th annual luncheon at the Metropolitan Conference Centre in Calgary, Alberta on May 13, 2014. McKitrick showed "how the gap is growing wider and longer between what global warming models predicted and what has actually happened to the world’s climate." This discrepancy has major policy implications.



The UN’s Sneak Attack on Your Pension

Institutional investors being pressured to stop investing in fossil fuels and move their money into lower-return alternate energy sectors. Institutional investors hold trillions of investment dollars and the future of millions of people’s pensions and retirements in their hands. Most have also signed on to the UN’s six Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which set the objectives of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), the stated purpose of which is to “better align investors with broader objectives of society.”



An Essay by Nigel Lawson: Cool It

This essay by Nigel Lawson is based on the text of a speech given to the Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment at the University of Bath. He says, "We know that, over millennia, the temperature of the earth has varied a great deal, long before the arrival of fossil fuels. ... the CO2 effect on the earth’s temperature is probably less than was previously thought. ... studies have clearly shown that, overall, the warming predicted for most of this century is likely to do more good than harm. ... Over the past 30 years or so, the earth has become observably greener, [due to CO2 fertilization] and this has even affected most parts of the Sahel. ...Global warming orthodoxy is not merely irrational. It is wicked."
