- Big Picture Science: climate change denial on Fox News, and was their reply to Joe Bastardi's MUST SEE VIDEO LINK: Fox's Huddy Falsely Claims Skeptic's Questionable Study "Seems To Debunk" That Global Warming Is "Man-Made"
As you will see, Alan's reply has "science" on his side........your have to make up your own mind about what scientificamerican.com used!!

polemic against Joe Bastardi will take you to Scientific American’s polemic
Here’s where Bastardi goes wrong, according to SA:
What climate science says is not that CO2 carries energy into the atmosphere or somehow magically generates it out of nowhere. Instead, it says that CO2 and other gases acts as a blanket, keeping heat from escaping into space. This, as Bastardi should know, is called the greenhouse effect.
Remember that: “keeping heat from escaping into space.”
But this is what else “climate science” will tell you:
Earth’s thermal emission with a greenhouse effect = 239 W/m²
Earth’s thermal emission without a greenhouse effect = 239 W/m²
For in greater detail, as this “science” purports to explain, the greenhouse blanket reduces the heat spilling out to space but in doing so makes the earth so hot that it spills out what it did before. In other words, the evidence we have of a blanketing effect is that there is no evidence. A blanketing effect is unobservable because the earth releases the same amount of heat with or without a blanket on. Indeed, Scientific American admits this in the very next sentence.
