When You Find Science Denial at the Science Museum

I went to DC’s Smithsonian Museum of Natural History expecting to learn about the history of our planet. Instead, I stumbled upon a Koch-funded climate denial disaster.

“With the planet in peril, arts groups can no longer afford the Koch brothers money.”

Climate Reality Project in a World of Denial

A Dose of Reality

OK…c’mon now. You simply cannot be part of the breathing human race and NOT know that our climate is shifting in some pretty dramatic ways. OK, maybe an infant. If you are a newborn, I will cut you some slack, but everybody else..unh unh. I'm looking ot you, White House.

Wanted: The Next Generation of Climate Change Leaders

Scientists took Mother Earth’s temperature much as you would to determine if someone is ill. In a State of The climate report, US Scientists determined she is not well and getting sicker. Her oceans are heating up and rising. Her snowcapped glaciers are melting. Carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide have all reached record levels in the atmosphere. She is very hot and getting hotter. What this green goddess needs is a group of leaders to the rescue!
