Letter: DeSmogBlog is unreliable source on climate change

letter-to-the-editor3The letter by Pete Kuntz attacking Tom Harris is based mostly on misinformation from the notorious smear-blog DeSmogBlog. DeSmogBlog is a completely unreliable source, founded and funded by a criminal convicted of illegal Internet gambling operations and money-laundering and run by a for-profit PR firm in Vancouver, Canada, with clients who benefit from fears about global warming.

The Heartland Institute, one of the groups criticized by Kuntz and often the target of attacks by Desmogblog, gets very little funding from corporations and less still from fossil-fuel interests. Go to their “Reply to Our Critics” feature for a thorough debunking of DeSmogBlog’s criticisms.

Letter from Fred Singer, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Virginia. Fred resides in Arlington, Va.
