Rightwing Site Now NRSP Central

on

The tireless Tom Harris, executive director of the NRSP (Not Really Science People), has discovered the right-wingy Alberta website Free Dominion, “The Voice of Principled Conservatism.” Harris popped up on FD a week ago, pleading for $10 donations that might help him argue that his mysteriously funded astroturf group is actually a grassroots organization with wide public support.

Now, he’s back prodding the radical right to challenge Stephane Dion on his climate change position when he appears at town hall meetings in Edmonton and Calgary on Thursday and Friday of this week (Jan. 11 and 12, 2007).

I’ll leave it to the new Liberal leader to defend himself on climate change. Anyone with a dog named Kyoto who has the nerve to call a public meetings in Edmonton and Calgary must know the kind of questions he’s likely to face.

But you’ll notice that Harris is booking no Question and Answer sessions, no opportunities to ask, again, who’s paying him to pretend that he’s a practicing engineer and environmental activist and not a PR guy working full-time to convince the public that – all evidence to the contrary – climate change isn’t happening.

Show us your financials, Tom. Then we weigh more intelligently your enthusiasm for the gaseous status quo.
