Denial Campaign Raging In UK, As Well

on

We’d been suffering under the apparent misapprehension that the UK media was relatively unburdened by a climate change denial campaign, but George Monbiot, in this Guardian column, suggests that the “debate” also rages fiercely in some of the UK‘s most prominent dailies.
Monbiot is also releasing a new book, including this nice explanation of the participation of tobacco peddlars, oil merchants and flexible “scientists” in creating confusion about scientific issues. Much of this material will be familiar to anyone who has read Ross Gelbspan’s excellent books, or who has been reading the DeSmogBlog, but Monbiot is a clear thinker and a nice writer. His essay is definitely worth a look.
