“SOUND SCIENCE” DEBATE DISMISSED AS SO MUCH SMOKE

VANCOUVER – Yesterday, the Chicago-based Heartland Institute launched an ad campaign calling former vice president Gore to a public debate on global warming. In response, the DeSmogBlog challenges the Heartland Institute to a debate on the harmful effects of second-hand tobacco smoke.

A correction to this post has been made, see here.

Tim Ball Does Science: Believe It When You See It

Natural Resource Stewardship Project executive director Tom Harris says that the indefatigable Dr. Tim Ball is not retired - that “his writing, speaking and media schedule would exhaust most rock stars.” Well, as a reference to Canada's foremost climate change denier, that seems like an uncharacteristically factual statement. Certainly, Dr. Ball spends more time acting like a rock star than, say, a working climate scientist.

Heartland Institute and puzzling "genius" throw down Gore debate gaunlet

Just when you thought the global warming denial lobby couldn't get any stranger and desperate, well… they go and get stranger and more desperate. Christopher Monckton, who is the Viscount of Brenchley, but is better known as a puzzlemaker, has teamed up with the oil-industry darling Heartland Institute in challenging former Vice President Al Gore to a global warming debate.

An advertisement pronouncing “Challenge debate: global warming is not a crisis” appeared in today's Washington Post, according to a press release sent out by the Heartland Institute.

Honda hybrid a no-brainer


Check out Gizmodo's review of the Honda Civic Hybrid. This is a no-brainer new car purchase, at 50 mpg with 140 horsepower, coming in at around $22,000 US ($25,000 CAN). Not to mention the huge savings in gas and tax exemption programs. No wonder Toyota and Honda are doing so well, while the Detroit automakers are still flailing their arms over Hummers and F150's.

For those out there who think going green means going backwards, please tell me where the hair shirt (or in this case seat-covers) is in the Honda hybrid?
