Junk Science: Steve M'Lie Sticks to His Script

Regardless of the clear evidence that he had posted inaccurate information on his website (see next post), Junk Science purveyor Steven Milloy, has jumped straight over the “apology and correction” step, moving directly from inaccuracy to insult.

Indeed, rather than admitting that he had misinterpreted or misrepresented material printed by the American Physical Society, the self-described “Junkman” accused APS President Arthur Bienenstock of cowardice in the face of political controversy, and suggested that the APS is on the verge of a Nazi purge of those who disagree with the majority view (“Nacht der langen Messer,” in M'Lie's words).

JunkScience Lies: APS Offers Respectful Correction

Using methodology that Junkman Steve Milloy has refined over more than a decade, the pro-pollution website Junk Science today announced that the American Physical Society (APS) “has declared that there is no scientific consensus that humans are causing global warming.”

But a quick click on the APS website produces this:

The American Physical Society reaffirms the following position on climate change, adopted by its governing body, the APS Council, on November 18, 2007:

“Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth's climate.”

Isn't there a technical, legal and socially bruising word to describe when someone says something that is directly at variance with an observed, easily verifiable truth?
