Newsweek Takes On Global Warming “Deniers”. Blogged in Green Options.
I read the Newsweek article. It thought the most significant point made is that contrary to those who say global warming deiers are being marginalized and can’t get funding to pursue their studies, just the opposite is true.
If you have a Ph. D attached to your name and are willing to write a piece to tell the media that global warming is natural — not caused by human activities — money will flow to you.
The situation is very similar to the cigarette smoking and cancer controversy of 30 years ago when all the science pointed to cigarettes, but well funded counter “research” by the cigarette companies for years maintained public suspicion that smoking was not harmful. All the research and pro-tobacco op-eds were false.
