Well usually whenever I hear or see a reference to Conrad Black‘s Canadian publication The National Post I roll my eyes and wonder "Oh boy, just what are the global warming deniers trying to tell today" but today I read an op-ed there that I thought was thoroughly delightful and put a grin on my face. For those who may not be initiated and familiar with the The National Post it has proudly proclaimed it’s intent to "provide a voice for Canadian conservatives" and openly advocates a "unite-the-right" movement in Canada and is the birthplace of Lawrence Solomon’s The Deniers.
Anyway John Moore in a July 16th 2009 op-ed article (aren’t all articles in the Canadian Post op-ed) writes:
I knew I was poking the bear when I sent my most recent column (Climate skeptic arguments don’t hold ice, July 14) to my editor here at the National Post. The [Financial] Post publishes almost weekly columns about the fiction of climate change so understandably some readers are well persuaded that the whole global warming house of cards is already tumbling down. The torrent of e-mails and some 48 on-line comments later and I have a new appreciation of just how fiercely some hold on to their denier status.
Ya just gotta read the whole piece, its great.
Maybe it’s just guilty pleasure and I shouldn’t really say this but I just love seeing the readers of CP get a stick in their eye.
