A new Huffington Post blogger named Harold Ambler has posted an unoriginal rehashing of the same old global warming denial talking points that we’ve seen over and over again for close to a decade now.
What’s newsworthy here though is the venue.
Huffington Post has long been a place where this type of junk science has been debunked, not promoted.
This little coup has the climate skeptics all giddy and bloggers like Adam Siegel at Get Energy Now rightly ticked off:
The question for me is: who the heck is Harold Ambler?
And what makes Ambler such an authority on climate science to so confidently make the bold claim that global warming is a lie? By the looks of his various bios smattered around the internet it appears that Ambler’s background in the area of climate science is non-existent, he is the author of an upcoming book on a rowing team at Brown University and a musician.
Such an outrageous claim as: “It [global warming] is the biggest whopper ever sold to the public in the history of humankind,” flies in the face of what the top scientific institutions in the world like NASA, the US Academy of Science and the Royal Society have been saying for years and its going to take a lot more than the ramblings of rowing guitarist to prove it.
