Tim Ball: Ad hominems ad nauseum

How do you criticize politely someone who just doesn't mind whether or not he tells the truth?

The tireless Dr. Tim Ball, who will apparently go anywhdre on earth to deny climate change, has washed up on a UK television program called The Great Global Warming Swindle. Ball is heralded in the promotional material as a “Climatologist and Prof Emeritus of Geography at the University of Winnipeg.”

Climate Change and Evangelism

A frightened - and frightening - rump of the evangelical community has launched an attack on the climate change consensus, suggesting that it is somehow inherently anti-human.

The first volley in the most recent attack came last Monday from the Rev. Jerry Falwell - the Moral Majority founder who has done so much to reintroduce religion into American politics. Falwell, who apparently has an inside track on the devil's thoughts and tactics, said that climate change was “Satan’s attempt to redirect the church’s primary focus” from evangelism to environmentalism.

Because We Didn't Get an Oscar: Play Stars and Stinkers

Global warming is serious business, and this site has some pretty no-nonsense goals. There is, however, something to be said for having a little fun (and poking a little fun) every once in a while.

We created our flash game, Stars and Stinkers, to lighten things up, and to help raise awareness about global warming among a larger, celebrity loving and hating audience.
