Oprah touts Exxon/Ford lobbyist as climate change "expert"

While Oprah is to be congratulated for her “Global Warming 101” special yesterday, it is discouraging to see Competititve Enterprise Institute's Marlo Lewis being touted as an “expert” in the science of climate change. As regular readers of DeSmog know, the CEI has been one of the leaders of the industry-backed war on climate change science.

To be fair, Oprah also includes other non-scientists like Leonardo DiCaprio as a source on climate change, but last time we checked Leo is not part of an industry-funded campaign, he is speaking for himself.

ChequeMate: Amy Enrages DeSmogBlog Accountant

DeSmog fans who have been following our conversation with Amy Ridenour of the National Centre for Public Policy Research will surely be entertained by her recent post . Amy complained earlier that we had used a photo of her husband, NCPPR second-in-command David Ridenour, without her permission. She proposed to charge us a dollar for one-time usage and promised to donate the dollar to charity.
