Failing to Question the Sources of Climate Change Denial Isn't Fair to Citizens Concerned About Climate Change

(The following is a response to a recent op-ed in the Vancouver Sun.)

I am not a scientist. I am not a climate change expert. I’m a PR guy; I have been in the business for more than 25 years. So I know a public relations campaign when I see one, and lately, Canadians have been treated to a stunning example.

It began, in earnest, a month ago with wide release of a letter from 60 “experts” taking issue with the current consensus on climate change. That petition was repudiated by a second letter, signed by 90 of the top climate scientists in the country, but it didn't stop those in the first group from flooding the country's opinion pages with “climate skeptic” reports and, most recently, from hitting the talk circuit.
