Denial Failure

Controversy! Evidently the scientific community's doubts about global warming aren't as clear cut as the lying fuckwits at the Heartland Institute might like us all to believe. The Heartland Institute published a list of 500, count 'em 500 scientists that they claim were united in disavowing the concept of global warming. Pretty impressive... until the scientists named start to find out and demand their names be removed from the list.

The article, by Hudson Institute director and Heartland "Senior Fellow" Dennis T. Avery (inset), purports to list scientists whose work contradicts the overwhelming scientific agreement that human-induced climate change is endangering the world as we know it.

DeSmogBlog manager Kevin Grandia emailed 122 of the scientists yesterday afternoon, calling their attention to the list. So far - in less than 24 hours - three dozen of those scientists had responded in outrage, denying that their research supports Avery's conclusions and demanding that their names be removed.

I'm sure Denyse O'Leary will be trumpeting this conclusive information any day now. The swirling dishonesty is further derailed when the commenters start digging into the list over desmogblog.

You mean the right wing propaganda machine lied???

Say it isn't so!

Next you'll be telling me that most of those global warming denying 'scientists' are drawing paychecks from Exxon or something.

What's wrong with you leftards? =)
