    I’d like to cite Corbett and Pilato as sources, but their climate denial completely undermines their credibility. And it ain’t doing much for the site as a whole, either. I was very enthused about BFP, until I ran into repeated climate-denial claims. They more they’re featured, the less likely I am to support BFP.

    There’s a far more parsimonious explanation. “Which Is More Likely? (A conspiracy of millions, or oil companies doing what they do?)” By Russ Baker on Feb 18, 2012
