    10 Scientists Criticize Fox’s Climate Coverage

    Jill Fitzsimmons, September 24, 2012 (Ecowatch)

    “An analysis by the Union of Concerned Scientists found that 93 percent of Fox News’ recent climate change coverage was misleading. Over the last two years, several leading scientists have told Media Matters the same thing…

    “…Last summer, Fox News hosted global warming ‘expert’ Joe Bastardi to claim that the human-induced climate change contradicts the 1st law of thermodynamics and Le Chatelier’s Principle. Duke University scientist William Chameides called Bastardi’s claims ‘utter nonsense,’ and the University of Chicago’s David Archer said Fox is ‘wrong’ to suggest that these basic principles negate the risks of climate change. Richard Muller, a physics professor at the University of California, Berkeley, agreed…”

    “In a point-by-point rebuttal to past statements made by Bastardi, NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt used the words ‘nonsense,’ ‘simply ignorant,’ ‘completely wrong,’ ‘handwaving,’ ‘very odd,’ and ‘based on nothing’ … Earlier this year, Bastardi was back on Fox with more confused claims. He declared on Fox Business that carbon dioxide ‘literally cannot cause global warming’ because it ‘doesn’t mix well with the atmosphere’ and ‘its specific gravity is 1 1/2 times that of the rest of the atmosphere.’ Asked about Bastardi’s statements, Kerry Emanuel of MIT said: ‘Utter rubbish. Sorry to be so direct, but that is just the case.’ NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt added: ‘Bastardi is attempting to throw out 150 years of physics’…

    “…[And more:] 4. Lead Author of Study Called Fox’s Global Warming Story ‘Patently False’…5. Polar Bear Scientist: Fox Missed ‘The Bigger Picture’ on Polar Bear Populations…6. Lead Author of Wind Farm Study Debunked Fox’s ‘Misleading’ Coverage…7. Solar Physicist Called Fox’s ‘Mini Ice Age’ Prediction ‘A Huge Leap’… 8. Climate Change Contrarian Said Fox’s Mention of Him ‘Does Not Make Sense’…9. Syracuse Geochemist: Fox Coverage ‘Completely Misrepresent[s] Our Conclusions’…10. Stanford Scientist: Fox’s Coverage Did ‘Not Accurately Portray Our Findings’…”
