Heartland Denial Palooza coming. This won’t be the First One with Punch Bowl Problems
May 7, 2012
Oldie but Goodie. Some long time viewers may remember how keynote speaker Pat Michaels nearly cleared out the room at the 2008 Heartland Climate Denial conference, when he suggested that in fact, the world is getting warmer, and humans have something to do with it, and that a favorite climate denial claim might in fact be, in his words, “a little unfair to the data”.
If you’re on a schedule, cut to Michael’s remarks about 2 minutes in.
Another problematic speaker at the conference this year will be “Jack” Schmitt, former Astronaut but more recently famous for ludicrous truth-challenged remarks about the extent of Arctic ice, (he seems to think there’s nothing happening up there), and for his conviction that the environmental movement has been taken over by the Communist Party.
