Dr. S. Fred Singer's Reputation: Falling from a High Perch

on

In light of his having threatened to sue us, we have been poking around (and accepting help in that regard from clever readers) and have come up with two more comments on Dr. S. Fred Singer.

First, and much in his favour, we have his own CV, which distinguishes Dr. Singer as a scientist of significant accomplishment, although given his current role as an anti-government lobbyist, he must be a little embarrassed about having spent two stints on the taxpayer’s tab (once under Nixon, and once under Reagan/Bush).

Second, if he follows through and sues, we presume that he will argue that we have damaged his reputation, which is strange, given that this and this are examples of how his reputation has been characterized in the past.

Looks bad, Fred.
