Global Warming ‘Pause’ is More Than Temporary; Scientific Evidence

Friends of Science president Len Maier wrote in the Montreal Gazette that we dispute the claim by Dr. Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University that the current 16-plus-year slowdown in global warming is merely a pause. "The scientific method requires comparing predictions of your theory to the observational evidence, and the anthropogenic global warming theory as expressed in climate models fails the test." Lovejoy also falsely claimed there is a “consensus among scientists” of his views, but there is a wide range of views among climate scientists on the effect of CO2 emissions on global warming.



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.”
