Scientists Try to Protect British Public from A Spreading "Swindle"

Dozens of British climate scientists are trying to block the DVD release of a controversial programme that claims global warming has nothing to do with human greenhouse gas emissions. Sir John Houghton, former head of the Met Office, and Bob May, former president of the Royal Society, are among 37 experts who have called for the DVD to be heavily edited or removed from sale. The film, the “Great Global Warming Swindle,” was criticised by scientists as distorted and misleading.

Check out the video below from a recent Jon Stewart episode. The Daily Show actually tracked down Mr. Hardison. And to end with what is becoming a regular refrain here at DSBlog: seriously, we're not making this up.
