Newsbusters Makes Fantastical Leaps of Logic on Oldest Living Tree News

It didn't take long for Noel Shepard at Newsbusters to twist a new study on the discovery of the oldest living tree to fit his notion that the world' top scientists have it all wrong when it comes to human-induced climate change.

The study, carried out by a team led by Leif Kullman, professor at Umeå University's department of ecology and environmental science in Sweden, has found the world's oldest tree living in the mountains of Sweden.

Same Front Group, Different Day ...

“Clean coal” spin by any other name is still spin. In other words, the coal industry has scrapped one front group name for another, as if we wouldn't figure it out.

The coal industry's $35 million spin machine , Americans for Balanced Energy Choices (ABEC), is now the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE). This is the result of a merger between the ABEC and another coal industry interest group, the Center for Energy and Economic Development (CEED).
