In Denial of Bad Science

In an ongoing investigative series, DeSmog is scrutinizing ways climate science deniers are trying to take on the appearance of legitimacy through cracks in the scientific community.

We have documented ways deniers have attempted to infiltrate scientific conferences with questionable practices, publish in “sham” journals with shoddy peer review, and fund research papers that at times read more like angry emails than an exercise in the scientific method.
