Myron keeps boiling the oil

Myron Ebell is spreading himself thin between Freedom Action Network work where he is pitching in against US healthcare reform (he likes it just the way it is), and wrecking any potential action to save us from the most life threatening effects climate change.

While it is morally acceptable (though sad) for the seriously defunct United States political system to self-inflict unnecessary pain and suffering on its own people through gross medical and financial maladministration, causing irreparable harm to the global environment is another matter.

Myron's expertise with the minutae of Congressional procedures exposes his pleasure in a system that consistently comes out with the wrong answer on easy questions.

Back to his CEI work, where Myron has decided to don his Cambridge University, England tie again:

This is the same one he wore to the Select Committe on Energy Independence in December 2007, as you can see from this picture:

(Although that was shortly after abandoning his tie for the CEI website that September in a picture he now uses for F.A.N.)

So, what has Myron been boiling the oil about this time?
Climategate: Alarmist Scientists Plan a Snow Job

According to recently disclosed e-mails from a National Academies of Science listserv, prominent climate scientists affiliated with the U.S. National Academies of Science have been planning a public campaign to paper over the damaged reputation of global warming alarmism. Their scheme would involve officials at the National Academies and other professional associations producing studies to endorse the researchers’ pre-existing assumptions and create confusion about the revelations of the rapidly expanding "Climategate" scandal...

In my view, the response of these alarmist scientists to the Climategate scientific fraud scandal has little to do with their responsibilities as scientists and everything to do with saving their political position. The e-mails reveal a group of scientists plotting a political strategy to minimize the effects of Climategate in the public debate on global warming.
As we well know, Myron's view is, as always, fossil-fuel-company-serving, and wrong. When he goes out and aggressively kicks someone, he pretends that it is wrong to kick back in any way.

These scientists are not cold-hearted calculating machines, they are human beings who -- as humans -- would quite like the human species to live at least beyond the end of the century.

Myron Ebell, on the other hand, doesn't care how many people he causes to die, if that is what he is paid to facilitate.

Myron has scoured the list-serve email messages for damaging content and hints of a conspiracy.

For a group of people who have been participating in a world-wide conspiracy to take over the energy supply, they do seem to lack any money or PR industry help as they pathetically consider raising money to buy an ad in the New York Times:
I would like to invite all members of the NAS (Ralph - please send this to all sections) - to sign a declaration that there is clear scientific evidence that burning of fossil fuels by humans will will alter the climate. I want that to be on the back page of the NYT and other newspapers in the US, sponsored by the NAS- without any outside contributions - unless they sign a contract making it clear that the NAS will not endorse any private companies. For this - I offer $1000.00 of my personal funds- but I will only donate these funds if 50 members of the NAS come with matching funds.
I mean, this is hopeless. This is disorganized, uncoordinated, unfunded, useless and unproductive.

As Myron knows, from his work on the Exxon and Chevron funded Action Plan in 1998 to train bogus scientists and systematically insert lies into the political system, you need professionals.

The kind of professionals who know about evil, like Bonner&Associates who send false letters in the name of citizens groups purporting to be in favour of corporate policies.

There's no point in paying for New York Times ads, folks. Just get out of your office, find Myron Ebell, and film yourself asking him a few questions about, say, his involvement in that 1998 Exxon conspiracy. Take along the documents. Does he admit he was there? Can he kindly explain to the viewers what he was trying to achieve? What were the names of the five bogus scientists they obtained the budget to hire and train?

We want answers to these very serious questions. Get out and get them.
