The ‘Historical Jigsaw of Climate Deception’: Private Notes Show How Big Oil Spread Climate Science Denial
We’ve all heard the dodgy arguments: ‘the science is uncertain’, ‘climate change is natural, not down to humans’, ‘science has been hijacked by politics’… Now a new cache of documents sheds light on the origins of the disinformation.

In another verse of a now familiar refrain, a fossil fuel industry group in the 1990s publicly promoted arguments to undermine confidence in climate science while internally acknowledging their products were driving up temperatures. (...)

‘Climate apartheid’: UN expert says human rights may not survive
The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law. (...)

To Fight Climate Change, We Need More Powerful Supercomputers
Accurate predictions of Earth’s warming require computers that are too expensive for one country or institution.


By Sabine Hossenfelder
Dr. Hossenfelder is a research fellow at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies.   NYT

Key paragraph:

In this situation, the best we can do is improving computer models to obtain more accurate, approximate solutions. It is knowledge we urgently need: As Earth continues to warm, we face a future of drought, rising seas and extreme weather events. But for all we currently know, this situation could be anywhere between a mere annoyance and an existential threat.

This video is on the Congressman's youtube channel. One comment says that he went to MIT. I smell a scandal there.

 
 
I think Massie was just playing to the mouth-breather segment of his constituents. I've known a bunch of MIT grads and they are pretty goddamned smart, albeit with gaps and blind spots in their knowledge just like everyone else.

This entire article’s “proof” is just saying that “higher CO2 happened before humans, therefore humans can’t cause higher CO2“.

Here are logically identical arguments: “England scored goals before Harry Kane, so Harry Kane can’t score goals” Or in American English: “The New England Patriots scored touchdowns before Rob Gronkowski, so Rob Gronkowski can’t score touchdowns” Or more simply: “Fires happened before humans, so humans can’t cause fires”.

So if you agree with this article’s logic and that humans aren’t causing CO2 to rise, you also have to believe that Harry Kane and Rob Gronkowski never scored anything and could never score anything, and that no fire has been caused by a human ever.

Which scientists "proved" that?  Anyhow, there is technically no such thing as "scientific proof", right?
 
Often colloquially used, but yes, there's no such thing. Proofs belong to mathematics. Science generally deals with evidence (data) and probability/likelihood.

You also have to believe that burning materials made up of carbon doesn't produce CO2
