S. Fred Singer: One Whopper on Top of Another

Dr. S. Fred Singer, denier for hire, wades into the Financial Post letters page today to claim, once again, that he is innocent of accepting money from big oil or big tobacco. Complaining of previous attention from the DeSmogBlog, the good doctor says:

“Although tobacco has nothing to do with the global warming debate, Mr. (Kevin) Grandia suggests that I sell my science to special interests. And since he cannot show that I am 'in the pay of the oil lobby,' tobacco will have to do.”

Well, Fred, yes we can show that you are “in the pay of the oil lobby .” Tobacco was just a bonus.

Sponsors pull plug on Tech Central Station

Looks like former tobacco spin doctor Doug Goodyear's DCI Group is getting with the times and letting loose it's controversial TCSDaily project. As many know, the ExxonMobil sweetheart TCSDaily has been a bastion of the climate change denial movement for quite some time now. You also may remember that DCI Group was embroiled in a bit of controversy lately over a YouTube Al Gore spoof video they produced and posted under the guise of 29-year old amatuer filmmaker.

Reviewer Stumbles Over an Inexplicable Truth

There is a problem with Al Gore as a climate change champion: he somehow brings out the worst in a certain group of people - people like Metro Toronto movie reviewer Rick McGinnis.

McGinnis demonstrates in this review that he dislikes Gore, because he's successful, because he's rich, because he was a Democrat, because he is passionate and has a conscience - because he got off his butt after “losing” the 2001 election and found something useful to do.

What McGinnies DOESN'T demonstrate is that he was paying attention when he sat down to review An Inconvenient Truth.
