Patrick Lockerby at Scientific Blogging takes on global warming deniers. A nugget:
This is the age of rapid public access to satellite images. If you want to know what is happening to the Arctic ice you can see for yourself. There are some people who don’t want you to look. They want you to read their drivel instead, and go away believing that the Arctic ice isn’t really melting, or if it is then that is nothing unusual. On Saturday, May 01, 2010, Paul Driessen wrote a piece of blatant propaganda called “(Desperately) Looking for Arctic warming”. It was “co-authored by scientist Willie Soon”.
The article has been multiply published, . . . . Scientists are usually content to publish once and then let the media pick it up – or not. Propagandists, however, need to disseminate their BS themselves, since no discriminating journalist would take them seriously. I call the article blatant propaganda because that is what it is.
