  2. Wyoming Schools Won’t Teach Climate Change to Protect the Oil and Coal Industry Causing Climate Change

    Sure. Raise a generation of science-illiterate students. What could go wrong? Oh... right... everything.

    Schools in Wyoming are the first to reject the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) that include lessons on, among other things, climate change. Why? Lawmakers say it's because teaching climate change would turn kids against Wyoming's coal and oil industry (which are causing climate change.) They're probably right.

  3. Texas Museum Removes Exhibit On Climate Change, Keeps Drill Bits And Fracking Simulator

    Psst Ken Ham check it out!

    Last week our very own Glen Tickle explained why The Mary Sue won't be lending credibility to climate change deniers by giving them equal consideration when we write about science. Unfortunately, the freedom to embrace facts (global warming is real, and a real bummer) can be a luxury. Texas' Perot Museum of Nature and Science is in the news for allegedly omitting global warming from its exhibits, but it's not the only educational institution bowing to pressure from climate-change deniers.

  4. Climate Change Denial, Creationism, and Other Bad Science Don’t Deserve Equal Consideration in Science Journalism

    There. We said it.

    As part of The Mary Sue’s merge with Geekosystem, we’re going to be covering more science stories in the future. We thought it was worth mentioning up front that we won’t being giving equal weight to things like Creationism or climate change denial in our science coverage. Here’s why — they just don't deserve it.

  5. Pat Sajak Has a Message for Climate Change “Alarmists,” So We’ve Got a Message for Him

    Go ahead. Buy some vowels.

    Pat Sajak decided to weigh in on the climate change debate with some classic, old man "get off my lawn"-ery on Twitter, so we've got a puzzle we think he'll be able to solve. We've also got some fabulous prizes—like not caring what he thinks about facts.

  6. NASA Warns That Loss of West Antarctic Glaciers, Rise of Sea Levels Now Unstoppable

    Any news on that extra Earth we ordered?

    A NASA press release today revealed that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is in an "irreversible state of decline" and rise of sea levels following its destruction will be unstoppable. So excuse me for a second, I need to go breathe heavily into a paper bag.

  7. Our Friend Bill Nye and John Oliver Teamed up to Mock Climate Change Debates on Last Week Tonight

    Can we get more evidence on the hat subject, though? I'm not convinced.

    Debates on scientific topics like climate change can get pretty silly, but they get especially silly when Our Friend Bill Nye and John Oliver purposefully mock them on Last Week Tonight. Oliver's whole bit about climate change debates is really great, but if you're impatient, jump to the three minute mark to see Bill Nye join in.

  9. The Ocean Is Turning Into Acid Because Of CO2, So That’s Fun And Exciting

    Maybe start avoiding the beach? Unless you want to look like Harvey Dent.

    Stop me if you've heard this one, but the ocean is fairly important to, you know, all life on Earth. That being said, it's pretty unfortunate that a new, comprehensive study of our major bodies of water has shown that - slowly - they're all becoming steadily more acidic because of global warming.

  10. Climate Scientist Explains That Global Warming Doesn’t Mean It’s Never Cold, Because Apparently People Need to Hear That

    Sigh.

    Climate scientist Michael Mann went on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes to explain that yes, it can still get cold in the winter even though climate change is real. There can even be ice and snow. Seasons still happen. There's no shortage of evidence to support human-cause climate change, and none of it means weather is over.
