NRSP Team Finally Earns Publishing Credit

Just a week after I marvelled (see, NRSP: Not Really Serious People) at the low profile being maintained by Canada's newest “environmental organization” (see, NRSP: Not Really Science People), the NRSP principals, Tim Ball and Tom Harris pop up with a column - where else, but on Canada Free Press.

Uh oh ... the NRSP is Praising Harper's Climate Change Bill

The “newly-launched environment organization” NRSP has issued a press release praising the Conservative government's new Clean Air Act for ignoring Kyoto and for failing to establish a cap on CO2 emissions.
