National Post Finds New Denier

Lawrence Solomon, in a National Post-sponsored series lionizing climate change deniers, has ferretted out a new name, Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv.

In response to a reader query, we at the DeSmogBlog have to admit that we have no insight into Dr. Shaviv, other than to observe that he seems to be commenting outside his field of study (and that the National Post has trouble spelling his name correctly).

NRSP Steps up the IPCC Bashing

“This is … a U.N.-backed body that quite frankly is an advocacy group for controls on carbon emissions,” said Tom Harris, executive director of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project, a leading clearinghouse for challenges to the science behind global warming. …

“There're over 10,000 reports that come out in any year on climate change … and this group doesn't represent at all that many of the leading scientists in the field. Our own scientists have raised questions about the data they've seen from the IPCC.”

Tom Harris, executive director, the Natural Resources Stewardship Project

The above quote, from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, shows again the extremes that energy-industry funded public relations people will go to attack the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

AEI Linked to Fraser Institute

Kenneth Green, the “visiting scholar” who last year offered $10,000 payments to any scientist who was willing to provide an “independent” analysis of the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was the former Director of the Centre for Studies in Risk and Regulation at The Fraser Institute - which is set to release such an “independent analysis” on Monday.

For those who are attending the London press conference, it might be reasonable to ask if any of the contributors to this report actually received the $10,000 payment.
