Discredited Friends of Science Re-emerge as the Natural Resources Stewardship Project

A breathless news release announced Thursday that Dr. Tim Ball is now the chair of a new “environmental” group called the Natural Resources Stewardship Project.

The snazzy new NRSP website announces a broad array of principles and strategies, but their goal is simple:
NRSP’s first campaign is focused on dispelling the notion that Canada needs CO2 reduction plans.
Here we have yet another “grassroots” organization, emerging spontaneously to fight the demonic international conspiracy to recognize the global threat of climate change.

I think it's fair to say that Airton brings a particularly partisan perspective to her work - her column, for example, is not called “Left On” - so it's no surprise to hear her defending Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The headline on her last column was Harper unafraid to say the right thing.

Green Festival Report Out

Blogging from the airplane, flying back to Vancouver from Washington, DC, via Montreal. The weekend in DC for the Green Festival was a great trip, and certainly worthwhile for the DeSmogBlog. We even spent an evening with one of our favorite writers, the infamous Chris Mooney, who is in the thick of writing his new book about hurricanes.

A Realpolitik Review of Canadian Climate Policy Roadblocks

Here's a great piece by Don Martin, the only person on the National Post staff who appears to have noticed that he's breathing air with an increasing proportion of CO2 in it.
