Global Warming Skeptic
IREA has both directly and indirectly promoted skepticism about global warming. On the front page of its website it features a teaser for an article "Is Earth Entering Another Cooling Cycle?". "With all the talk about global warming, it’s surprising to hear about some of the coldest, harshest winter weather ever observed. Now the talk is shifting from “global warming” to “climate change”, with some people believing that even cold weather is caused by humans. “We’re not hearing nearly as much about catastrophic man-made global warming this month.”," the website states.
