NRSP Makes it on the Sourcewatch List

The Natural Resources Stewardship Project, has raised its profile at least enough to get noticed on Sourcewatch, the internet's best resource on the perversion by public discourse by public relations professionals.

NRSP "Expert" a Half-Hearted Denier

One of the new “climate change experts” recently identified by the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (think: Not Really Science People) seems vaguely conflicted about his own climatic conclusions.

In this Short Primer on Climate Change and the Greenhouse Issue, Dr. Garth Paltridge, Professor Emeritus at the University of Tasmania, concludes that it would be worth spending money to address climate change on the following grounds:
  • To preserve the current environment for future generations;
  • As a precaution against “disastrous change of climate which might basically alter the structure and economic well-being of human society;”
  • To protect against “significant risks for the smaller and less economically diverse countries;”
  • To recognize that many of the recommended expenditures (improving efficiency, saving energy) have “no regrets.”

NRSP: Climate Change Deniers-Are-Us

Congratulations to Tom Harris, executive director of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (better known as Not Really Science People), who has scoured the earth for “experts” prepared to deny the science behind climate change and has found a couple of people we'd never heard of before.

Most (27) of Harris's 31 “experts” fall nicely into the category of “usual suspects,” having all signed the infamous Letter of 60, demanding that the Canadian government take NO action on climate change. (Kudos to Harris for his success on that front, as well.)

Prime Minister Harper Cowering from Climate Change Scrutiny

Hats off to columnist John Ibbitson for this scoop in today's Globe and Mail. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has cancelled a Canada-EU summit in late November, apparently for fear of having to stand up in a room full of Europeans and account for Canadian climate change policy.

Aside from adding to Canada's ongoing international humiliation on global warming, you have to be a little bit optimistic about this development: At least the prime minister has the wit to be embarrassed about his government's shameful performance.
