Wiki-libel: Denier Solomon Tries to Shoot the Messenger

Lawrence Solomon - he of the imaginary legion of top scientists who deny climate change - has launched an attack on the credibility of Wikipedia, complaining especially that Wiki has the temerity to acknowledge climate change and to censor unfounded counter arguments.

Unfortunately, Solomon pegs his own case to the reputation of the notoriously unreliable Benny Peiser, leaving the Wiki editors looking admirably clever.

Fred Singer's Nobel Prize Winning Sham

Wow. There's denial of reality, there' delusion, there's delusions of grandeur, and then there's the prolific climate denier S. Fred Singer claiming that he is a Nobel Prize winner.

In a bio description for an upcoming talk to a UK skeptics society meeting, (sent to us by a very astute DeSmog reader) Singer has this to say about himself:

As a reviewer of IPCC reports, he [Singer] shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.”

S. Fred Singer and the Global Warming Denial Machine

ABC News aired a sweeping piece on career contrarion S. Fred Singer, a character well-known to us here at the DeSmogBlog.

The 84-year old “grandfather of the global warming 'skeptics'” shows just how over the edge he is in the following exchange:

ABC Anchor, Dan Harris: There are so many scientists who disagree with what you're saying, the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change], NASA, NOAA, the National Academy of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society - we're talking about scientists all over the globe.

S. Fred Singer: What can I say? They're wrong.

Fred Singer: Let's Lie About Global Warming

In his opening presentation to the Heartland Institute's climate change quibblefest, the ever-unreliable Dr. S. Fred Singer says, “Let's conclude that greenhouse gases are not responsible for global warming.”

Oh yes, let's.

Of course, according to form, Singer offers no proof to support this conclusion. He claims in a passing reference that he and a couple of other (more credible) authors have recently published a journal article that categorically dismisses the role of CO2 in global warming.

But that article, which Singer has been misrepresenting for months, does no such thing.

DeSmog on the Ground for Denial-a-palooza

DeSmogBlog has hit New York City for the Heartland Institute's climate change denial-a-palooza to mingle with the conspiracy theorists, industry parrots, puzzle-makers, scientists for hire and those who just can't let go of their flat-earth ways.

First stop registration, where I received a big bag of think tank propaganda, including a copy of Fred Singer's book Unstoppable Global Warming, a John Christy DVD produced by the Center for the American Experiment and a recording of Christopher Monckton's lecture, Apocalypse? No.

400 Prominent Scientists Dispute Global Warming - Bunk

Climate change denial lives - though not nearly to the extent that Swiftboater Marc Morano would have you believe in his latest wild overstatement about “prominent scientists” who dispute man-made global warming.

Morano's list of “over 400” alleged climate quibblers (which can be found today on a host of right-wingy blogs and websites) includes the usual discredited suspects, a crowd of amateurs and TV weather forecasters who can claim no “pominence” in scientific circles, and another group of real climate scientists who don't actually dispute human-induced global warming at all.

It's bunk, Marc. Bunk.

Christopher Monckton: a Peerless Prevaricator

Tim Lambert at Deltoid has a hilarious wrap of the recent inaccuracies - nay, outright lies - of the ever-entertaining Christopher Walter, Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, denier for hire.

100 discredited, self-interested and/or deluded "scientists" question climate change

The great Groucho Marx used to say that he would never join a club that would accept him as a member. It's amazing that no hint of such pride can be found among the signatories to the latest letter advocating inaction on global warming.

Who, really, would want his name to appear on a list that included the likes of Dr. S. Fred Singer or Dr. Tim Ball, men who have made truth telling a hobby rather than a habit, men who take money directly or indirectly from energy companies (see here and here) and then go on to practice public relations, while calling it science?
