“Ad hoc group wants to run attack ads“. At first I thought Anthony Watts was trying to help his “think tank” friends raise money for some more “CO² is good for you” TV spots, but he’s actually complaining about some scientists proposing to respond to attacks on conventional climatology research.
Stanford University biologist Paul R. Ehrlich says that “we’re in a street fight against well-funded, merciless enemies who play by entirely different rules”. True, true. It’s maddening to see the unchallenged denialist bunk that reaches the public. That’s one of the reasons for I started this humble website.
But I’m reminded of the George Bernard Shaw quote: I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig, you get dirty; and besides, the pig likes it.
Anthony, you’re the pig.
