Dr. Tim Ball: The Lie that Just Won't Die

The deathless and - in many specific respects - completely fictional meanderings of Dr. Tim Ball have begun appearing again on right-wing blogs all over the net. At City Troll, at Convenient Untruth and at New Orleans Lady, the same tired and retreaded old climate rant paints Dr. Ball as the courageous victim of a plot to silence a well-meaning skeptic.

But Ball can’t even tell the truth about his own resume. His claim to be the first Climatology Ph.D. in Canada is a total falsehood; his degree was in historical geography - not climatology - and it was nowhere near the first ever granted to someone writing vaguely in the field.  It also was granted by the university as a doctor of philosophy, not the more prestigious “doctor of science” that Ball claims in these articles.

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.

Tim Ball Rewrites the "Truth" Once More

In this article in the Texas-based Energy Tribune, Dr. Tim Ball, lead spokesperson for the energy industry front group the Natural Resources Stewardship Project, says, “Current weather and climate changes are not outside long-term normal patterns.”

That's just not true.

NRSP Controlled by Energy Lobbyists

Two of the three Directors on the board of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project are senior executives of the High Park Advocacy Group, a Toronto-based lobby firm that specializes in “energy, environment and ethics.”

But while the High Park execs have majority control over the NRSP, it appears that they don't have to report its operations as part of their lobbying or account for who's paying for the NRSP's operations.

National Post Heralds Another Denier

“With the evolution of megacities, we now seem to feel that we are powerful enough to change the environment at our whim.”

Dr. Fred Michel in the National Post

The problem of climate change is not one of changing the environment “at our whim;” the problem is that we have been changing it inadvertently. Which means the question is not whether we are powerful enough to affect the environment around us…

Loiter Creekside for Skeptic Roasting

Check this Bowen Island blogger for an entertaining wrap of recent skeptic news.

Funny line of the day for climate change insiders:

The Natural Resources Stewardship Project, a Canadian environmental policy research think tank which evidently feels the need to put quotation marks around words like “green energy” and “environmentalists”, lays out a strategy which quite likely involves a child blowing on a dandelion ….

NRSP Bashing Gets Gritty

Tom Harris, executive director and lead PR guy for the Natural Resources Stewardship Project (Not Really Science People), is being subjected to a liberal amount of piling on at BigCityLib, where they object to the notion that his organization is apolitical. The original BigCityLib posting is here .
