Paul Ehrlich responds to Mark Steyn's Disgrace To The Profession

Mark takes amusement with Paul Ehrlich's review of his book at Amazon
It is sad that with humanity facing catastrophic climate disruption as part of an existential threat that there are still people willing to attack Mike Mann, one of the real heroes of climate science, outrageous lies. But one must admire the well-funded denier campaign, carried forward by the likes of Rupert Murdoch and his "False News" network, for the campaign's persistence in the face of massive evidence, its success in confusing much of the public, and creating a propioganda [sic] triumph equivalent to that of creationism in keeping Medieval nonsense embedded in the brains of many Americans. Unhappily the "triumph" may prove doom for many of our descendents [sic]. Mike Mann is admired by all real climate scientists, even those who may have same disagreements with him (there is no certainty in science, unlike in the world of denial propogandists [sic]) -- and I know many of the leading players and follow the field closely. The best one can say of this silly collection of comments from hacks and has-beens, mixed with quotes-out-of-context, is that it is NOT a disgrace to the profession of its perpetrators, nor to their pimps.

Maetenloch has a bunch of great quotes, this one above included
Mark Steyn: Ol' MacDonald, Nice 'N' Easy, and Drawing Down
Bob Belvedere: Is The Camp of the Saints Happening?

Instapundit: Being a Clinton apologist is hard too, science and politics = politics (especially when the science is bad to start), the great unlearning, how society became so stupid (all was predicted by Idiocracy) and the next genocide

Kevin Williamson: Portrait of a fanatic...

Rush Limbaugh: Climate Change on Mars? and what he really thinks about Mars

Instapundit: Always bet against Ehrlich

  1. I tried to count the errors and contradictions in that quote, but soon surrendered to the avalanche.

    Has Paul Ehrlich ever been right about anything?
