John,

Neal K. commented on the post, but it has not gone live yet (at least not that i can see).  Should someone delete his post? I am off to bed.

Hey, you wrote " global warming as the "greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people"

Isn't that contrary to the principle of not reinforcing stupid skeptic ideas?

Well spotted, Rob ;)

I've got the book on my wishlist - is it a worthwhile addition? I already have Merchants of Doubt, Climate Change Denial, and Censoring Science. I'll probably get this anyway, it seems to come from a slightly different angle.

Much of Jim's book will be familiar territory for you but there is a different emphasis. Naomi's book focuses on specific individuals covering a range of environmental issues and my book only has a small section on the denial industry.

In the case of the hoax quote, in this case it is necessary to illustrate the attack on science. Good point though :-)
