Coming Soon From A Bunch Of Climate Change Deniers Near You

Today, Dr. Patrick Michaels of The CATO Institute (see http://www.cato. org/people/ patrick-michaels) called me to ask if I could distribute the attached proposed newspaper ad to you in the hopes of obtaining your endorsement for inclusion in a list after the letter. Dr. Michael tells me the text of the open letter is essentially fixed and only cosmetic changes will follow at this point.

Please let me know if you will allow CATO to include your name and affiliation on this crucially important public appeal to President Obama. Dr. Michaels informs me that, due to space-limitations it may not be feasible to include everyone’s endorsement but he hopes to get as many supporters as possible for this effort, regardless.

If they get a sufficient number of highly qualified endorsers, CATO plan to arrange that the attached open letter is published in newspapers this coming week, so we hope to hear whether or not you will allow your name to be included in the endorser list as soon as possible. Feel free to either contact Dr. Michaels directly at pmichaels@cato. org or simply respond to this e-mail and I will forward endorsers’ names, with complete affiliations, to him.

Hope to hear from you very soon!

Actually, just have Dr Nils-Axel Mörner sign his name. Nils is on the Science Advisory of Harris' International Climate Science Coalition ,
and for Tommy's other pet project, the Natural Resources Stewardship Project .
Both of these are essentially PR firms along the same lines of Steve Milloy's Junk Science outfit (you remember, smoking is actually GOOD for you).

Nils used to write a blog called Global Warming is Good, and was one of the signatories of the 60 'experts' who wrote a letter to the PM offering their opinions on AGW.

Also, Nils is a water dowser,

so Tommy's a little sensitive about that.

The lay-out aims at 100 names

=> i guess they will have to refuse 31748 scientists ;-)

It seems denialosphere is in full action. Again. This is getting boring actually.
