Take off the Veneer of Certainty on Climate Change Science; December 5, 2017

Echoing the sentiments of a blog post by Dr. Judith Curry, Friends of Science Society says it is time to take off the veneer of certainty on climate change science and stop demonizing hydrocarbons like oil, natural gas and coal as in the #PoweringPastCoal campaign. A number of recent writings offer new insights into climate change science –an essay by Rupert Darwall on “The Veneer of Certainty Stoking Climate Alarm,” and a new book “Mirrors and Mazes: A Guide Through the Climate Change Debate” by Dr. Howard Brady.

Young and Old Alike Reject Climate Change Hysteria as EU Parliament Reviews Skeptical Film; October 26, 2017

While headlines claiming climate change catastrophe abound, young and old alike reject climate hype and question the burdensome subsidies that damage the environment and economy, says Friends of Science. They cite the failure of climate catastrophe movies like “Geostorm” versus the success of a recent showing of “The Uncertainty Has Settled” at the European Parliament, along with public condemnation of climate policies by Australian politician Tony Abbot and Canadian business leaders.
