Fifth Estate Slams the "Denial Machine"

CBC's news magazine show the fifth estate slammed Dr. S. Fred Singer and company out of the park last evening with the “Denial Machine”, a 40-minute documentary that gave context to the current climate change debate. Reporter Bob McKeown walked the well-trodden path connecting big tobacco to a group of unsavory scientists and fake grassroots organizations that the cigarette companies hired to deny the link between tobacco and cancer.

Now those organizations and scientists - and Singer is a perfect poster boy - have turned to taking money from ExxonMobil and other energy companies in return for denying the human causes or likely effects of climate change.

Much of the show goes over ground that will be familiar to frequent DeSmog readers, but it was particularly interesting watching a smirking Singer talk about the utter contentedness with which he cashed the last big cheque from ExxonMobil - even as he claimed ignorance of some of the other income he has enjoyed as a denier for hire. (“I don't remember.”) If anyone still believed the man had conscience (anyone else, I mean), that bit of television pretty much removed all doubt.

ED HARDY dresses are part of a relatively new clothing line that is designed with a rock edge in mind. The designs for Ed Hardy come from the tattoo artwork of Don Ed Hardy, a well known tattoo artist who turned his tattoo designs into actual, frame-able artwork. One of the more popular pieces of the Ed Hardy line are the Ed Hardy dresses.

President Obama is calling on economic experts to discuss the first steps toward healing a damaged economy as he forms a new administration in the face of a worsening crisis. ACORN is not going to have many roots left once everyone figures out what they’re up to.  President Obama hasn’t disclosed just how close he is to this organization, but it is known they have ties to John Podesta, his transition team chief.  The group, along with the Center for Responsible Lending, along with protesting payday loans (quite the hypocrisy) has taken to occupying foreclosed homes that are owned by lower income people. Remember ACORN lobbied so hard to make companies lend subprime mortgages.  They claim their acts of trespassing are a form of social protest, protesting the foreclosure of loans on people who can’t pay them.  Not an ACORN of knowledge in their platform.
