Judith Curry is going to be testifying to a Senate Committee next week, along with some other climate science deniers and at least one scientist defamer. The others testifying are from the rogues gallery of science disinformers. The GOP could only find two people who are employed as climate scientists, Judith Curry and John Christy. So they reached into the science denier bag and fished out two disinformers for hire: Will Happer, and Mark Steyn.
Why do the Republicans bother with this crude pantomime? Why not just hang a sign around their necks saying "we want the world to burn"?
Judith is so looking forward to it. She wrote:
Well this promises to be quite interesting, it will be a treat to be in the same room with Ted Cruz and Mark Steyn.
Interesting - no. Not unless you are researching climate disinformers and defamers in the USA. There'll be nothing but "uncertain", "IPCC", "models", "delay", "defame", "deny", "send the world to hell...as soon as possible".
A treat? I can't imagine even a hard-core science denier thinking it a treat to be in the same room as that bunch of lying creeps. Excuse me, but I feel nauseous.
PS - Going by the HW blog stats, the readership of Mark Steyn's blog is at least an order of magnitude greater than Anthony Watts' / Eric Worrall's WUWT blog. His readers are about the same low intellectual calibre however. The other oddity is that the "free speech" advocate doesn't allow any free speech on his blog. That must be immensely frustrating for his keyboard-bashing defamation-prone denialati fans.
