With characteristic attention to the facts, Dennis Avery, Monsanto’s man in the organic food debate, killed both climate change and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in a post yesterday on his Centre for Global Food Issues website.
“Consensus on man-made warming is shattering,” Avery announced, basing this wild-eyed overstatement on last week’s story that:
Physics & Society, The journal of the 46,000-member American Physical Societ, just published “Climate Sensitivity Revisited,” by Viscount Christopher Monckton. Monckton is an avowed man-made warming skeptic, and former science advisor to the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. (My emphasis.)
This whole story is afloat in hogwash, a fact that APS President Arthur Bienenstock has been at pains to point out.
