Researcher Slams Skeptics' Distortions in New York Times Op-Ed

“Our results have been misused as 'evidence' against global warming by Michael Crichton … and by Ann Coulter… In the meantime, I would like to remove my name from the list of scientists who dispute global warming. I know my coauthors would as well.” – Peter Doran, Op-Ed Page, New York Times, July 27, 2006

“Those who are familiar with Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) know he is aSen. Jim Inhofe straight shooter who speaks his mind,” says the liberal-media bashing NewsBusters.org blog.

When "Balanced" Journalism is Anything But Balanced

Here's a marvellous attack on climate change science, scientists and media types who might take those scientists seriously. It's also a perfect example of a PR tactic that is being used to pervert the climate change conversation.

The writer, one Dick Little, complains that in a recent Discovery Channel feature on climate change, host Tom Brokaw failed to present the contrarian case. Little says, “… the fact is the program did not show anyone with proper scientific credentials to express an opposing viewpoint. That's not balance. That's propaganda.”
