A New List of Climate Quibblers: Paid Deniers, Dead Guys and Ill-informed Fellow Travellers

The latest list of “650 International Scientists (who) Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming” seems to be more of the same: dead guys (Fred Seitz, Marcel Leroux, Reid Bryson …), paid deniers (Fred Singer, Tim Ball, Sallie Baliunas …), and a much larger group of weather forecasters and “experts” from unrelated fields, many of whom (eg., Edward Wegman) don’t even disagree with the scientific consensus that human activity is causing climate change.

The apparent author of this list, Swiftboater Marc Morano, even included the names of Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger, an historian and an anthropologist who have made themselves famous by advocating for renewed and more vigorous policy action against the threat of climate change.

Nordhaus and Shellenberger: Overselling the Right Message

You probably heard already: The “Death of Environmentalism” guys are back, once again explaining the follies of the green movement.

Their new book, Break Through , has created a lot of chatter with its argument that enviros are too darn pessimistic, and repeatedly shoot themselves in the foot with command-and-control regulatory thinking and doom and gloom talking.

Recent books on global warming; Neros at their fiddling

Author Bill McKibben has penned a review of recent books by Bjørn Lomborg, the Danish statistician and self-proclaimed “skeptical environmentalist, and Ted Nordhaus and Michael Schellenberger, who discuss how to persuade Americans to take action on climate change.

McKibben, an environmental activist and frequent writer on global warming, posted the review on Gristmill with permission of the New York Review of Books, where the piece appears October 11, 2007.
