Green Festival Report Out

Blogging from the airplane, flying back to Vancouver from Washington, DC, via Montreal. The weekend in DC for the Green Festival was a great trip, and certainly worthwhile for the DeSmogBlog. We even spent an evening with one of our favorite writers, the infamous Chris Mooney, who is in the thick of writing his new book about hurricanes.

NRSP: "Scientists" Who Hate Science Journals

Here's an exchange from ClimateAudit.org, a den of denial, but one where interesting scientific arguments break out nevertheless. In this case, Dr. Tim Ball, chair of the new climate change denial group, Not Really Science People (NRSP), breaks away from the science to talk instead about how unfair it is that real climate scientists insist upon reviewing the work of other real climate scientists before allowing that work to be published in reputable journals.

NRSP: Not Really Serious People

A quick Google News search reveals that the triumphant introduction Thursday of a new astroturf group, the National Resources Stewardship Project, produced exactly zero news stories. I couldn't even find a hit on Canada Free Press.

Someone should explain to NRSP PR honcho Tom Harris that if you're looking for media attention, you shouldn't choose a front man (Tim Ball) who has no credibility and who has made himself a national pariah by suing the biggest news conglomerate in the country (Canwest Global through the Calgary Herald) for an imaginary libel.
