Canada: ... and back home in Denierville

Science Denying Tory MP Can't Get Anything Right

The Conservative Member of Parliament from Okanagan Shuswap, Colin Mayes, writing in an error-ridden email to a constituent (reproduced in full below) has questioned the human contribution to climate change.

“Climate warming is happening,” Mayes said. “Just what the cause is has yet to be substantiated. Is it Co2 in the atmosphere, sun activity, or cyclical?  Is this a trend that will change as we have seen recently in cooling of temperatures and rebuilding of ice caps?

“A good book on this issue is “Climate Confusion” written by a Climatologist in the US.  It's worth the read.”

Climate Confusion is, in fact, not worth the read. It's author, Roy Spencer, is an increasingly embarrassing scientific outlier.
