Someone over at Daily Kos found a cached version of one of the bloggers duped by the “Geoclimatic Journal” hoax.
Seems that the fine folks at Environment NC – a blog set up by the ultra right-wing so-called “John Locke Foundation” were willing to write some pretty glowing reviews of this fake study.
In referring to the “blockbuster” study, Roy Cordato, a “resident scholar” at the John Locke Society wrote:
Clearly this study from the latest issue of Journal of Geoclimatic Studies by four climate scientists–two from the Dept. of Climatology at the University of Arizona and two from the Department of Atmospheric Physics, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, should be the lead story on the eveing news tonight. But it is more than likely that it won’t even be mentioned. the paper abstract speaks for itself.”
Amazing, for a group pushing so hard for “sound science” they sure are willing to blindly report fake science. Embarrasing to say the least, not to mention a great illustration of the hypocrisy of the climate denial industry.
Hat tip as well to the fine work being done by Adam at Energy Smart blog.
