National Post Finds New Denier

Lawrence Solomon, in a National Post-sponsored series lionizing climate change deniers, has ferretted out a new name, Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv .

In response to a reader query, we at the DeSmogBlog have to admit that we have no insight into Dr. Shaviv, other than to observe that he seems to be commenting outside his field of study (and that the National Post has trouble spelling his name correctly).

Shaviv has published in the past with Canadian denier Dr. Jan Veizer, who shares Shaviv’s enthusiasm for a cosmic-ray theory for climate change. See RealClimate.org for this more thorough discussion of that theory.
