Ocean Cooling
Did the ocean actually start cooling and global warming stop? The data showed that the Atlantic had gone cold. But the scientist that was looking at the data knew that the inertia of the system should not allow such a thing to happen. But there it was... in the data. Knowing the models and the forces involved he did some more investigating and found something... he looked at his wife and said "Oh, no,". What's wrong?" his wife asked? He replied, "I think ocean cooling isn't real."

Rich document C source code header The Cosmos Myth
Did S. Fred Singer trick Revelle into an association to achieve an agenda? When the sequence of events is examined, the intentions seem to implicate his agenda. "The energy companies reportedly began taking steps to prevent the public from believing that humans are warming the planet" ... "as early as the 1980's". It looks like even then, Singer was working with Michaels, Balling, Ellsaesser and Lindzen.

Carolyn Revelle, What My Father Really Said
The disturbing story of how scientists that work for special interests can tarnish the reputation of a 'Truly Great Scientist' Roger Revelle. This is a story of distortion that has resonated for years in the global warming debate. The facts and the evidence are clear. Fred Singer, Richard Lindzen, John Coleman and anyone else that supports the deception are guilty of more than deception.

Richard Lindzen
Rebuttal to Richard Lindzen: In general, to support his contentions that global warming is not a serious threat, Lindzen relies on largely unsupported claims pertaining to well reasoned science regarding forcing and feedback's. Some of his contentions have been reasonably contested and in some cases the opposite of his claims have proven true. He tends to say it won't be so bad, but seems to be largely ignoring the economic costs of moving infrastructure and resource scarcity issues.

Station Drop Out
Many in the denialist camp like to talk about the fact that many temperature reading stations were taken out, and that is why the temperature readings showed global warming. But in reality, this is "Pure disinformation". According to Gavin Schmidt (NASA/GISS) "You can do the same analysis with only stations that remained and it makes no difference."

Troposphere Not Warming
This is a common denialist/skeptic meme. The reality is that while there are significant complexities in the tropospheric measurements and models, homogenized analysis indicates that the troposphere is doing what is expected of it in accord with the various models and general expectations.

Volcanoes Emit more CO2 than Mankind
This is a pervasive myth that continues to circulate. The idea that volcanoes put out more CO2 than mankind through human industrial output is patently false. Volcanoes put out around 0.2 Gt (200 million tons of CO2). The facts are clear and measured. As of 2010, humans put out on average of around 27Gt (Twenty Seven 'Gigatons') of CO2 per year. That's 2,700 million tons compared to natural cycles 200 million ton output.

1958 - Frank Capra warns of Global Warming
In 1958, Director Frank Capra made a movie for Bell Labs to explain the expected effects of 'Global Warming'. This was shortly after Revelle's paper came out. Capra, was also a scientist who graduated from California Institute of Technology in 1918 and did many science films for education.

1989 - Margaret Thatcher
Margaret Thatcher delivered a speech in 1989 that was powerful, compelling and succinct. She accurately described the potentials for mankind in reasoned tones if we did not address global warming. Themes: Agriculture, Energy, Environment, Foreign policy (general discussions), Foreign policy (development, aid, etc), Foreign policy (International organizations), Science and technology, Transport

Atmospheric Aerosols
Aerosols are tiny particles that are capable of suspending in the atmosphere. Most come from natural means such as dust storms, volcanoes, fires, or even vegetation and sea spray (sea salt released into the atmosphere). Human activity also contributes aerosol pollution through the alteration of natural surface cover, industrial pollutants, and the burning of fossil fuels.
