A Scary Halloween for the Climate Denial Industry

A Scary Halloween for the Climate Denial Industry
on

The amount of coverage we’ve received since the launch of Jim and Richard’s new book, Climate Cover Up, has been amazing.

The fact that we’re just getting warmed up is likely putting a scare into the think tankers, scientists-for-hire and fossil fuel front groups; from the emails we’ve been getting from such folks so far, I have no doubt we’re putting the scare in them.

I thought I would do a quick “monster” scary list of all the coverage so far to wish all of our supporters a happy Halloween and scare the pants off our critics:

[PS: for those of you yet to review Climate Cover Up, let me know when you do and I will put it out on a few of our “monster” Twitter, Facebook, Digg and StumbleUpon accounts]
