Climate Change Boot Camp
Here is a thought for the day
There are, in Canada and internationally, a host of organizations that exist purely to convince people that climate change isn’t happening, isn’t attributable to human activity, isn’t a bad thing or isn’t possible to stop without “wrecking” the economy. These are “Astroturf groups,” phony grassroots organizations sponsored directly or indirectly by industries that are determined to block substantive global warming policy changes: groups like Friends of Science, the Natural Resources Stewardship Project, the Global Climate Coalition, and the International Climate Science Coalition.
And of course one of the things they like to do is convince editors of the need for “balance” and they also troll blogs. There are similar groups pushing other agendas – such as the pro Gateway groups and a number of their sock puppets too.
