CEI Today: Global warming, EPA's 2013 agenda, and right to vote fallacies



Watch PBS Frontline, "Climate of Doubt"

CEI’s Myron Ebell, one of America’s best-known climate science skeptics, is featured on a PBS Frontline documentary entitled, “Climate of Doubt.” The program explores how climate science became a front-page issue in the 2008 election cycle but has disappeared since as Americans in increasing numbers have begun to doubt the urgency or even existence of the problem. Frontline “goes inside the organizations that fought the scientific establishment to shift the direction of the climate debate.” The program can be viewed online after it is broadcast.
