That journ-uh-list (and global warming believer) would be Gregg Easterbrook, blogging for Reuters, in a longer post that for the most part is an eulogy to the recently passed Stephen Schneider. As would be expected he remembers Schneider for qualities that were absent to skeptics, and he blathers about how the Climategate scientists had their correspondence "stolen," but he also hits a few points that will have some climate realists nodding in agreement.
The Wite-Out was barely dry on the Climategate investigations of the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit and Penn State hockey stick creator Michael Mann last week when environoiacs (including Mann himself) trumpeted "exoneration" and demanded apologies to those who were scrutinized.
We've got the biggest oil spill in U.S. history, but the environmentalists can't get any traction in support of more regulation and reduction of energy use, according to The Washington Post this morning.
Less than seven days ago Penn State University finished their Bic Brand Wite-Out Quick Dry Correction Fluid job (hey, I had to find an alternative to the overused "whitewash") on an "investigation" of Climategate hockey stick constructionist Michael Mann, finishing the exoneration they started work onearlier this year.
That would be former Hewlett-Packard chairwoman Carly Fiorina, Republican candidate for Barbara Boxer's senatorial seat in California, by calling "climate change" the "weather," that is, in the eyes ofUSA Today (and presumably ABC's Bill Blakemore).
Dr. Art Robinson, co-founder of the Oregon Institute for Science and Medicine and director of theGlobal Warming Petition Project which has collected the signatures of more than 31,000 scientists who dissent from climate catastrophism, is the Republican nominee to challenge Rep. Peter DeFazio in Oregon's 4th District.
Southern California's public radio station, KPCC, and its program "Marketplace" will host a daylong townhall Webcast next Wednesday to salve the wounded psyches of global warming paranoiacs everywhere. The symposium is entitled "Climate and Sustainability: Moving By Degrees," and is "aimed at bringing together journalists and the public online and at Southern California Public Radio’s (SCPR) Crawford Family Forum to decipher fact from fiction, to learn how our scientific understanding has evolved, and to understand where politics, science and business agree and diverge on how to create a sustainable future."
The Washington Times today updates Climategate's spawn, NASAgate, as the space agency's response to FOIA-filer (and friend) Chris Horner (who is also EPA's and NOAA's hunk o' burnin' love) has lagged, dragged and sagged for nearly three years.
The Washington Times reports that scientists who cling to their models and their (big-government and/or earth-worshipping) religion have initiated their latest (repeat) effort to promote cap-and-trade.
