Global Warming Alarmists are Slaves to Character Assassination

Excerpt from Heartland Institute Policy Brief, Merchants of Smear by Russell Cook, Section 9. Conclusion (page 16):

“For about two decades we’ve been told the science behind human-caused global warming is settled, and to ignore skeptic scientists because they’ve been paid by industry to manufacture doubt about the issue. “

“The truth, however, has every appearance of being exactly the opposite: A clumsy effort to manufacture doubt about the credibility of skeptical climate scientists arose in 1991 with roots in Al Gore’s Senate office; it gained effectiveness and media traction after Ozone Action took over the effort and drew attention to the “reposition global warming as theory rather than fact” memo phrase (which they never showed in its full context); and the effort achieved its highest success after being heavily promoted by the “Pulitzer-winning investigative reporter” Ross Gelbspan, who never won a Pulitzer, never displayed any investigative prowess in this matter, and never proved that any skeptic climate scientist had ever knowingly lied as a result of being paid illicit money.”

One response to “Global Warming Alarmists are Slaves to Character Assassination

  1. Thank you for your support. As I said in my brief July presentation at the 9th International Conference on Climate Change ( ) ordinary citizens can participate in this issue by asking tough questions and holding elected officials and policy makers accountable for decisions requiring accurate and full scientific fact-finding. If anyone accuses skeptic scientists of industry corruption, it is imperative that the accusation be backed up with evidence. A person does not have to be a rocket scientist – or a climatologist – to see for themselves whether such accusations can stand on their merits.
