Jim Hoggan is president of Jim Hoggan and Associates, a Vancouver based public relations firm. He has become concerned over the past several years at how PR techniques have been used to cast doubt on the scientific consensus behind Global Warming. Mr. Hoggan has launched an excellent blog, DeSmogBlog, where he and his team of bloggers takes the GW skeptics to task, based on Hoggan's intimate knowledge of the PR Industry.
As you know, I post on GW-related issues alot, and I've attempted in my own small way to penetrate the goings on of The Friends of Science, a Calgary based group of "enviro-skeptics" who have been in the news alot since the recent election. Well, in several posts on DeSmogBlog, they "follow the money" and manage to unearth a set of deep ties between the Friends and the Canadian Conservative Party. In another, it is revealed that one of the Members of the FOS, Dr. Fred Seitz, spent the 1970s and 1980s manufacturing fake reports for the tobacco industry claiming that there was still some debate over whether tobacco was a proven danger to health.
All very good stuff. In fact, probably worth visiting regularly.
BigCityLib says so, so it is so.
