In the past few months, climate scientists speaking out about the dangers of global warming have come under increased assault largely because of climate skeptics voicing concerns over the information contained within certain scientists email messages. An error in a recent IPCC report has fueled the fire further for global warming skeptics. Polls show that Americans belief in global warming is waning. So whats going on?

But these recent setbacks may delay key climate legislation, and some senators are using the data to push their agendas. Joining us for this episode are Melanie Fitzpatrick of the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Rick Piltz of Climate Science Watch. Then, we chat with Paul Gunter, Director of Beyond Nuclear, about the Obama administrations and Congresss push to build new nuclear power plants. Is this a good idea? What are the current issues with nuclear power in this country, and worldwide?
