Astounding Interview with “Oregon Petition” Nutjob – Art Robinson
October 13, 2010
Remember that creepy old guy in your neighborhood that had a lot of guns and was always yelling at you to keep off the grass? Or maybe you can picture the archetypical survivalist freak in a bad science fiction movie? (Tremors comes to mind.)
Now you can meet that person in real life. My video, “32000 Scientists”, is one of my most popular, because it addresses the widely circulated meme about a petition of “scientists” who purportedly deny the reality of climate change.
The originator of the bogus petition is Art Robinson, an entrepreneur serving the needs of the paranoid, right wing, conspiracy theorist and survivalist subculture from his lair in rural Oregon. Mr Robinson is now running for Congress as a Republican Tea Party candidate. Last week, Rachel Maddow featured an interview with Mr Robinson in full-on climate conspiracy crazy mode.
The Maddow interview is here in two parts.
I’ll be commenting more on this in upcoming posts.
