Inhofe's media bias claim innacurate, bordering outright falsehood

In his climate-change ain't happening State of the Union speech of Sept. 25th, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) makes the claim that climate change “skeptic” scientists do not get a fair share of media coverage.

Inhofe states:

“Scientists like MIT's Richard Lindzen, former Colarado State Climatologist Roger Pielke, the University of Alabama's Roy Spencer, and John Christy, Virginia State Climatologist Patrick Michaels, Colorado State University's William Grey, atmospehric physicist Fred Singer, Willie Soon, Oregon State Climatologist George Taylor [and] astrophysicist Sallie Baliuna, just to name a few. But you never hear of them.The media never talks about these well-established scientists.”

The Usual Suspects: Climate Change Deniers on Road to Stockholm

A two-day gathering of scientists – mostly greenhouse skeptics – in Stockholm in mid-September will focus on: Global Warming  - Scientific Controversies in Climate Variability”. The gathering will feature presentations by such skeptical luminaries as S. Fred Singer, Sallie Baliunas and Willie Soon.  Not all scientists are enthusiastic about the conference. Tom M. L. Wigley, a top climate researcher at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, wrote: “You may be well meaning, but I think this meeting idea is flawed. You seem to be making the same mistake as the popular press, who often give equal weight to minority views. It is true that the so-called 'skeptics' sometimes raise interesting points, but they are usually either on the fringe, or are quickly shown to be wrong. The normal process of scientific publishing through the peer review process will eventually sort the wheat from the chaff. I doubt that many mainstream scientists who work in the climate change area will want to come to your meeting. Certainly, it is not something I would want to participate in.”
