A paradise of mislesions

I got a document here which "goes through the 12 misleading arguments put forward by the opponents of urgent action on climate change and highlights the scientific evidence that exposes their flaws."

Myron Ebell will be reading it to check for any he's missed. In this past year I've seen him use "Misleading argument" Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 12, in spite of the fact that 3 and 4, for example, contradict one another ("global warming isn't happening" vs. "it's happening, but not because of CO2").

Interestingly, it doesn't mention Myron's pet crackpot claim, which he is pretty unique in espousing, that the whole of climate change research is a conspiracy perpetrated by government funded scientists who have devised the Kyoto Protocol entirely for the purposes of damaging the United States' economic interests.

Don't believe me? Listen to his slanderous November 2004 interview here which he gave to the BBC shortly after the Banana Republicans stole the votes of Ohio in the 2004 US presidential elections from a crippled right-wing party. Basically, only scientists (or unqualified crackpot economists) who are funded by private industry (eg Exxon) can be considered truly independent of state-sponsored bias.

Well, he would say that, wouldn't he? There is not one brain cell between his left ear and his right that isn't wholly dedicated to the pursuance of deceit. It's like a boxing promotor puffing up his man before a fight: good for filling space, but not a lot of use if you want to find out the truth.

Why not email this arsehole a piece of your mind? His corrupt and highly suspect lobby group is at

I have signed up for his bi-weekly email newsletter (ironically called EnviroWire) where I read his latest lies and scandalous attempts at undermining intelligent discourse on environmental concerns.

Email the cunt repeatedly at:

Has Myron had anything to say about the State of the Union speech? I can't imagine he would be very pleased.
