- Not so strange bedfellows: ‘People’s Climate March’ backed by Communist, Socialist Parties
- Obama shamelessly exploits children to promote his climate change agenda
- U.N. climate report writer resigns, calling today’s report ‘too alarmist’
- Repent, ye sinners: Climate change will cause spike in … golfing?
- Video: The best numbers from YOUR $700K climate change musical
- Nate Silver, the climate hysterics, and more of those fun climate-hysteric emails
