And the letters pour in....

The Globe and Mail printed 3 letters of follow-up on the Friends of Science knock-out piece from the weekend found here and here. They are in the “insider edition” section for subscribers only, but here is a summary of them from the free section:

Toronto – Charles Montgomery's article Nurturing Doubt About Climate Change Is Big Business (Aug. 12) shows us how once again the lies of corporate America are influencing our politicians and threatening to influence our children's thinking. It scares me that there are lobbyists in Canada trying to distract people from the real issue – how to swiftly implement changes in energy consumption to minimize the impact of global warming.

Toronto – Congratulations on your invaluable account of the efforts to deny the scientific evidence about global warming. It takes courage for even so well-established and secure an entity as The Globe and Mail to take on the oil and gas interests. You'll be hearing from them.

Ouch, looks like The “Friends” of Science, doesn't have too many friends.
