Science Fair Nightmare

This is a funny youtube video about a climate change contrarian Dad at the school science fair. It’s well worth watching especially if you’ve got some contrarians in your family πŸ˜‰

Thanks to the blogger at I’m not yet dead who brought it to my attention and who has an excellent post today called I don’t believe in climate change.

The post is about the Koch-funded climate change study that all climate science contrarians were going to take seriously because this was the only one that could be trusted. Well, it turned out that this study produced the same results as all the others.

The lead scientist, Richard Muller, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times about it called The Conversion of a Climate-Change Skeptic.

Here’s the first paragraph of his op-ed:

CALL me a converted skeptic. Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.
