I think we’ll just keep repeating the question until we get an answer:
Where’s the science? Where’s the science? Where’s the science?
The latest think tank effort is a video by the oil-industry-friendly Heartland Institute, who is just begging for attention as the Al Gore attack dog.
The video outlines some of the more popular denier themes (and deniers) around Gore’s Inconvenient Truth – like somehow discrediting Gore is a way of discrediting the body of literature around human-made climate change.
The tag-line at the end of the video is the best part: “Don’t let fear ruin your day, learn the facts.”
And according to the Heartland Institute, the “facts” around climate change are not to be found in the scientific literature. Instead, we can learn “facts” about climate change from the self-professed “expertise” as aired on CNN‘s Glenn Beck Show and Martin Durkin’s discredited “Great Global Warming Swindle” documentary.
If the Heartland Institute is so convinced of a global warming hoax, why are they not sponsoring the likes of Dr. Tim Ball to develop an hypothesis that challenges the consensus view on climate change and conduct research? Such a thing would no doubt put them on the map much more than harping on about Al Gore.
Here’s the video:
