C'mon, Sue Us: Please Sue Us

Frank Bi has a wonderful petition over at the International Journal of Inactivism, calling for hacks like Christoper Walter (the lurid Viscount Monckton of Brenchley) to find the courage of their alleged convictions and sue Al Gore and NASA‘s James Hansen for fomenting the global scientific “conspiracy” about climate change.

Really, if these guys had a shred of evidence – or dignity – they’d bring their vacuous argument before a judge and let the case be tested. I, personally, would love to see a jury trial – a serious opportunity to put the evidence before a dozen people who would test Hansen’s science against Monckton’s palaver.

Anyway, it’s August and you’re cruising the ‘net instead of working: cruise on over to IJI and sign up. I’m confident these clowns won’t sue, but baiting them is worth the effort.
