Gareth Renowden at Hot Topic unpacks a document skeptics distribute amongst themselves written by David Evans which advises skeptics on how to smear climate science:
Evans wants the world to send his falsehoods to politicians. The NZ C”S”C offer more from the author explaining his motivation for publishing this magnum opus.
In other words, it’s a straightforward smear campaign. No science involved. No reasoned argument. Pure, unadulterated PR, with lots of willing little Dewhursts out there to spread the message. One year on from the release of emails stolen from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, it seems that the stooges of inaction are not afraid of revealing their true face.
I'll say this for Evans - rarely are skeptics willing to be honest that their goal is to smear climate scientists. Evans basically says his smear campaign is a way to get stupid people to stop trusting climate scientists.
