Well-heeled skeptics spin drivel in struggle to scorch the planet

on

Our Australian friend Tim Lambert tipped DeSmog to this article in La Presse, Montreal’s largest newspaper, debunking the deniers’ arguments and linking them to such notorious organizations as the American Enterprise Institute, Cato Institute and Vancouver’s Fraser Institute.

Sebastian Weissenberger , professor of environmental science at Universite de Quebec a Montreal said skeptic-driven articles on climate change are not the usual peer-reviewed scientific essays but advocacy, pure and simple. Those who are true scientists usually are not climatologists.

Most interesting, Weissenberger says they always “use the same three or four arguments in denying climate change” and try to exploit the tendency of true scientists to speak in shades of grey rather than black and white, twisting their words to serve their skeptical purpose.

Here’s the english version (kind of).
