This blog will return in mid-September. In the meantime, here’s a video of a presentation I gave in Australia last month – and some thoughts on the bankruptcy of contemporary green analysis.
A new report funded by big oil and big tobacco has the chutzpah to complain about corporate influence on the climate debate.
Al Gore’s family raised tobacco for years. He boasted about his involvement with this crop on the election campaign trail, and accepted donations from big tobacco. With supreme hypocrisy he now attempts to discredit climate skeptics by connecting them rhetorically to this unpopular industry.
Al Gore has a bad habit. He tries to smear people with whom he disagrees – rather than refuting their arguments. It takes supreme chutzpah for a man with a family history of tobacco farming to use this rhetorical tactic.
