More Pseudo-Science From Those Folks at the Discovery Institute


by Mary

The Discovery Institute are the folks behind the "Intelligent Design" campaign to infiltrate science classes with creationism.

As befits a group that has so little regard for science, it is not surprising to see that they are now sponsoring talks that dispute the science of global warming.

The Discovery Institute talk features agricultural economist Dennis T. Avery, co-author of Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years. The book was coauthored with Fred Singer, a controversial climate change critic and climate physicist. Avery is a fellow with the Hudson Institute, whose "about" page on its founder is topped by an endorsement by Donald Rumsfeld. The institute held its own talk about the book last month and has this transcript online (pdf).

I guess they talked with that evangelical DC lobbyist who stated, Is God really going to let the Earth burn up? Of course not. God's happy to perform miracles in the face of human obduracy.
