Financial Post: Disinformation Central

Loyal readers of the deSmogBlog will know that in our paranoid moments we are most outraged by “climate sceptics” whose goal is not to present a reasonable argument that challenges climate science, but merely to suggest that there is an argument, that there is doubt. Because, in suggesting that the science is not clear, they can argue for inaction; they can argue that we should stand back and do nothing – let market forces act as they may, without interference from government (or science).
