The remarkable thing about the heretics I have mentioned is that every single one is doing this in his or her spare time. They work for themselves, they earn a pittance from this work. There is no great fossil-fuel slush fund for sceptics.

Ha! ha! ha!

May I present the cherry picking and disinformation award of the year!

It follows below. If there’s one speech about the climate debate worth reading in your lifetime, this is it. Andrew Montford of Bishop Hill has also formatted the speech into a PDF file, with an improved version, better graphics, A5 format for printing by Mike Haesler here Ridley_RSA (PDF) suitable for emailing, printing, and snail mail. Distribute both as widely as possible.

Denial campaign marches on! - Expect quotes from it from here on!

Like the creationists this hides in complexity and voluminous dubious assertions followed by the hope that readers will think earlier references to debunking examples pseudoscience will add weight to an argument and that some credibility will "rub off" on what follows, - after readers have been bogged down with irrelevant verbosity.

Thank you very much for listening. - How to do meditation!

.. an appropriate ending!
