Report: America could power itself 100 times over with solar energy - The Washington Post
"It is widely known that among all the sources of alternative energy, the one with the greatest potential is solar. How could it be otherwise? Staggering amounts of solar radiation strike the Earth each day; the only trick is capturing more of it. In a new report, the Environment America Research and Policy Center seeks to visualize and quantify this potential as it pertains to the United States. The report argues that the U.S. "has the potential to produce more than 100 times as much electricity from solar PV and concentrating solar power (CSP) installations as the nation consumes each year." It adds that every single state could generate more solar electricity than its residents currently consume." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet

This is completely bogus BS and does a disservice to real data. - Eric Logan

Who is Paul Homewood? - Sean McBride
It doesn't matter if Ronald McDonald posted it. Those are the facts and the three datasets. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
I am not even going to look at the article until I know who Paul Homewood is -- I am not going to waste my time. Who is he? - Sean McBride
You already looked or you wouldn't be asking who Paul Homewood is and it's not an article it's a link to the three datasets and a comparison. - Eric Logan from FFHound!
I saw his name as the source of this post -- but I don't know who he is. Until I do, I am not going to read this page -- by now I have seen far too much nonsense originating from bad and tainted sources on the subject of global warming and climate change -- much of it funded by the carbon industry. I need to see the scientific credentials and sources of income of global warming analysts upfront before I pay attention to what they are saying. - Sean McBride

Raw data can be massaged and manipulated any way you like. I am only interested in the interpretation of that data by the world's most reputable and reliable climate scientists -- and their work is reported on a regular basis in the leading scientific publications. See the above Google search statement. - Sean McBride
It's colder right now in the Arctic than the 1958 to 2002 mean and 100 year temperature records are falling because of Arctic warming. I get it. - Eric Logan
Here is a Google search for you notice recent entries like the last few years are noticeably absent. https://www.google.com/webhp... - Eric Logan
You lack the scientific credentials to interpret this data in its full context. But feel free to believe whatever you like. - Sean McBride
Ok. December 10, 2013. Based on remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded that temperature at a desolate ice plateau in East Antarctica. It was the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth, though it may not get that recognition in the official record book. http://www.usatoday.com/story... - Eric Logan
Over half way to this prediction posted by you during the hottest year on record. Arctic ice is still rebounding. No cognitive dissonance there though. https://friendfeed.com/seanmcb... - Eric Logan
And when I quickly browse the search results here: http://www.google.com/search... I immediately notice that this situation is complex and subtle -- requiring expert interpretation of the simple numbers. So I pay attention to the most reputable experts -- certainly not to non-scientists with a political axe to grind. - Sean McBride
It's so complex and subtle the exact same expert moved his date back to 2020. Expert predicts ice-free Arctic by 2020 as UN releases climate report. http://www.adn.com/article... - Eric Logan
So am I to understand that it being really really cold in the arctic should matter to the other parts of the world that are really really hot? - Todd Hoff
Maybe this will help explain it ? GISS is using a lot of bogus data and it does not match the other recognized data sets. Gavin Schmidt predicted that 2014 would be the hottest year ever in Feb. He also predicted a huge El Nino year. We didn't get the El Nino, but we did get the warmest year ever on GISS which he controls. http://hockeyschtick.blogspot.com/2014... - Eric Logan
Hey guys, I form my opinions on climate science via FriendFeed posts and comments, and all this back and forth is very confusing. What's REALLY going on? - Stephen Mack
Stephen. China is going to start cutting CO2 emissions in 2030. They promised. Really. - Eric Logan

The Debunking Handbook: now freely available for download (2011)
"The Debunking Handbook, a guide to debunking misinformation, is now freely available to download. Although there is a great deal of psychological research on misinformation, there's no summary of the literature that offers practical guidelines on the most effective ways of reducing the influence of myths. The Debunking Handbook boils the research down into a short, simple summary, intended as a guide for communicators in all areas (not just climate) who encounter misinformation." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
