Scientific methods

May 21, 2006

NICE story about Al Gore and his upcoming movie ["Al Gore Warms Up," May 14]. I had to laugh when I read "... in the Wall Street Journal, MIT climatology professor Richard Lindzen argued that the global warming 'alarmists' base their claims on junk science."

If the super volcano under Yosemite went off, or the nuclear power plant north of Manhattan melted down, or a Category 5 hurricane wiped out Miami, the WSJ would hire a scientific prostitute willing to claim that it was all a hoax, that there was no need to be alarmed and therefore no reason to alter business as usual.
