|astroturfin' fools !|
Lots and lots of bloggers and newspaper journalists have asked why conceal the highly obvious fact that the key figure behind this poor 'n' green oily effort was actually a top lobbyist for the never-short-for-change tar sands industry.

I kinda prefer my deniers to be evil and smart : not dumber and dumber
The legal paper trail is always, always, always, always how the astroturfers slip up : very surprising in this case because the original three involved in this group were all with law degrees, so you'd think they know better.
I don't mind debating deniers with some brains but when they are as stupid and as arrogant as a-bag-of-nails-with-an-attitude, it really depresses me.
How can I emotionally engage with their science arguments when I can't get my head around a scheme so transparent that even a first day law clerk won't be dumb enough to fall for it..........
