New 'Friends of Science' Site Needs a Signature

There's a new “Friends of Science” website at http://friendsofscience.ca/ . Have a click and you'll find something very different than the old http://www.friendsofscience.org/ of the oil-industry backed climate change denial group.

To their credit, the new group has assembled four interesting videos (the “short ad” is devastating and worth the look), but it's questionable that the only contact information reveals an anonymous opportunity to give them money. If they are not prepared to identify themselves, you'd be better off spending your global warming budget on compact fluorescents or sending it to a group like the David Suzuki Foundation, which accounts for its spending.

Be a climate change scientist... while you sleep!

Okay, maybe not, but you can help climate change scientists by letting them use your computer at night, or whenever you choose, to run climate change prediction models. It's very simple, just go here to BBC's “Largest Climate Change Project Ever” and follow the instructions.

In response to the Financial Post

The following letter was sent to the National Post yesterday, Friday, Nov. 24, 2006. A much-edited version ran in the business section today. We reprint the entire letter here for your interest:

I must respond to a series of unwarranted attacks by Financial Post Editor Terence Corcoran on me personally and on DeSmogBlog.com that I run, independent of my business (James Hoggan & Associates).

NRSP's Tim Ball's Delusions Now Include Paranoia

Climate denier, retired geography professor and chair of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (NRSP or Not Really Science People), Dr. Tim Ball, has been less in evidence lately: perhaps Canada's biggest media company (CanWest Global) is reticent to publish his meanderings after being added to the lawsuit against University of Lethbridge Professor (and defender of truth) Dan Johnson.

But apparently Ball is still chatting with the converted, spreading disinformation and (this is juicy) claiming that we at the DeSmogBlog are tracking his mail.

We have received this excerpt from a ClimateSceptics listserv which you can only access with an account. (We don't have one, but it would appear from the anonymous hits in our inbox that at least a couple of actual skeptics do.)

Coal, coal everywhere

A recent New York Times editorial shows a black and smoky future for electrical generation in the US.

To quote: “TXU, a giant Texas energy company , that it intends to build 11 new coal-fired power plants in Texas, plus another dozen or so coal-fired monsters elsewhere in the country. All told, this would be the nation’s largest single coal-oriented construction campaign in years.”
