 FORECAST EARTH : Climate Change and Environment Blog from The Weather Channel
She decries the supposed effects that climate change alarmism is having on children, and transforms her determination to protect kids from being scared into a baseless and underhanded rejection of the consensus view of climate change within the scientific community.
To address the urgent challenge of climate change, it is vital that major economies that use the most energy and generate the majority of greenhouse gas emissions agree on a detailed contribution for a new global framework by the end of 2008 which would contribute to a global agreement under the UNFCCC by 2009.
The pattern of global climate change policy debates in Washington is well-established: policy makers who are in favor of taking certain actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions cite scientific studies that support their case, while politicians opposed to such actions point to other studies that bolster their argument.

 - Prometheus: Climate Determinism Lives On Archives
The fundamental argument of the environmental determinists was that aspects of physical geography, particularly that of climate, influenced the psychological mind-set of individuals, which in turn defined the behaviour and culture of the society that those individuals formed.
For example, tropical climates were said to cause laziness, relaxed attitudes and promiscuity, while the frequent variability in the weather of the middle latitudes led to more determined and driven work ethics.
But that is, indeed, one of the key problems with the contemporary "science communication" of many naive climate scientists, who believe in the linear model, and who draw from their ability to deal with quasigeostrophic dynamics the qualification for recommending the fundamentals of climate policy and economy.
