Thank you Susan D. Fleming of Boston

Susan D. Fleming out of Boston wrote a letter to the June 22, 2006 issue of the Needham Times newspaper that hits the nail on the head and we here at the DeSmogBlog want to thank her for her contribution to the battle against the so-called “skeptics” intentionally manipulating the science behind global warming.

Now we just need to get this letter re-printed in the New York Times…

NEWS ALERT: Hudson Institute and Dennis Avery's Scientific Spin on Andes Glacier Study

The recent opinion piece by Dennis T. Avery of the Hudson Institute is a great example of the PR spin and misinformation campaign being used in the climate change debate.

Dr. Doug Leahey: Do any of the Friends of Science not lead back to oil and gas?

As the DeSmogBlog team continues it's research into the Alberta-based super skeptic society, the Friends of Science, it is becoming more and more surprising the links to oil and gas interests and the Harper Tories.

We're not even really trying, we type their name into Google and a barrage of questionable links, from legitmate sources pop up.

 The latest is the President of the Friends of Science, Dr. Doug Leahey, who, according to the Bercha Group, an Alberta Oil and Gas Consulting firm, is as an independent consultant to the oil and gas industry.

NEWS ALERT: Conservative/Alberta PC Operative Backs "Friends of Science"

As Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Alberta Premier Ralph Klein continue to lead the anti-Kyoto charge on the political front, it now appears that that Tory activists are also working the public relations campaign to muddy the waters – especially by backing the activities of the Alberta-based climate change denial machine: “Friends of Science.
