As part of DeSmog's daily scan of who's saying what and where about climate
change, we of course troll the numerous blogs run by the climate change denial lobby. One thing that is striking is the number of these blogs that do not allow you to comment on the posts they write.
Here are a couple of examples, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's
blog, the “Open” Market
and the Cato Institute's Cato-at-Liberty.
This is “blog spin” pure and simple. By not allowing comments on your site, there is no sharing of ideas or disagreement, which is one of the best features, if not the most most important and beneficial aspects, of blog technology.
So Cato and CEI
, get down from your preaching pulpit and open up your blogs to your fans and, of course, your detractors. What are you afraid of?
