Ross Gelbspan's Boiling Point: How Politicians, Big Oil and Coal, Journalists, and Activits Have Fueled The Climate Crisis--and What We Can Do to Avoid Disaster is noteworthy for any number of reasons, including his documentation of how interests aligned with the carbon industries have been mounting an aggressive disinformation campaign against the science documenting Global Warming. This piece by associate editor Bill Steigerwald published on Pittsburglive.com seems to be, sadly, a case in point. Snippets:
You don't have to be an amateur climatologist or an expert on the science of global warming. But the more you read about it, the more you should become aware of two things: Earth's climate is ridiculously complex, and much of the science supporting global warming remains uncertain and/or hotly debated. Check out junkscience.com or other politically incorrect global warming debunkers like the Competitive Enterprise Institute (cei.org) and see for yourself.
It's one thing for Greenpeace, Mother Jones magazine and other secular arms of the religious left to believe Doomsday is nigh. They accept global warming as a matter of faith, not science, and see it as a way to achieve political power.
