ABC News aired a sweeping piece on career contrarion S. Fred Singer, a character well-known to us here at the DeSmogBlog.
The 84-year old “grandfather of the global warming ‘skeptics’” shows just how over the edge he is in the following exchange:
ABC Anchor, Dan Harris: There are so many scientists who disagree with what you’re saying, the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change], NASA, NOAA, the National Academy of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society – we’re talking about scientists all over the globe.
S. Fred Singer: What can I say? They’re wrong.
Harris: All of those people are wrong?
S. Fred Singer: Yes.
Of course one could argue that Singer is some kind of modern day Galileo. However, that’s more than a bit of a stretch when you consider Singer’s connections to the oil and tobacco industry.
