Another questionable friend of the Friends of Science

In our continuous quest to debunk the debunkers, the DeSmogBlog has uncovered another questionable connection between an oil company funded front group and the Alberta-based Friends of Science.

Thanks to a helpful tip from one of our fans, and a little of our own digging, we have found that one of the signatories to a recent Friends of Science letter to PM Harper is Australian climate change “skeptic” Dr. Bob Carter. Dr. Carter is connected to the energy sector funded think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs (IPA).

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…

Hawking's Hyperbole Not Helpful


As much as we despise the deceptive comments and PR trickery of the industry-funded automatons bent on denying climate change, we are equally offended by muddle-headed environmentalists who skew the conversation through intentional or emotional overstatment.
