Clearing the Air on Climate Science

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Over on the main site this morning, I have a piece looking at one of the efforts to improve communication about climate science and encourage more scientist to engage with the press. In a similar vein, the House Committee on Science and Technology is today holding its final hearing on climate science for 2010—and likely the last hearing before a number of GOP climate change deniers take over the majority.

The hearing, “A Rational Discussion of Climate Change: the Science, the Evidence, the Response,” starts at 10:30 a.m. It features three panels, and the panelists include:

  • Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone
  • Dr. Heidi M. Cullen
  • Dr. Gerald A. Meehl
  • Dr. Richard Lindzen
  • Dr. Benjamin D. Santer
  • Dr. Richard B. Alley
  • Dr. Richard A. Feely
  • Dr. Patrick J. Michaels
  • Rear Admiral David W. Titley
  • Mr. James Lopez
  • Mr. William Geer
  • Dr. Judith Curry

THE TRUTH IS...

what drives Mother Jones' team of 50-plus journalists. The truth is powerful, as evidenced by how hard those with something to hide, or profit to gain, seek to discredit it. The truth, stated boldly and reported meticulously, is what draws so many readers to Mother Jones.

And the truth is, going into the final 4 days of the year we still needed to raise $TK to hit our $350,000 goal and start 2021 on track. It's nerve-wracking, wondering if the big spike we normally see at the end of December is going to be another thing that doesn't go as planned in 2020, or worse, if, now that Donald Trump is set to leave the White House (for longer than a taxpayer-funded golf trip to a property he owns), folks might be pulling back from fighting for the truth and a democracy and think the hard work is done.

It's not, and if you can right now, please consider a year-end donation to support our team's fearless nonprofit journalism so we can close that big fundraising gap and finish the year strong, ready for all that's ahead in 2021. Whether you can give $5 or $500, it all matters in keeping us charging hard, and we'd be grateful.
