LA Times Caught Making Stuff Up Again


'Climate scientists plan campaign against global-warming skeptics' Forming a 'Climate Rapid Response Team'


'Go toe-to-toe with their critics': '700 researchers have agreed to speak out... Some are prepared to go before what they consider potentially hostile audiences on conservative talk-radio and TV shows...aggressively engage the denialists and politicians who attack climate science' -- 700 Scientists claim DROPS TO 39?! Only '39 scientists agreed to participate' so far...

Faced with rising political attacks, hundreds of climate scientists are joining a broad campaign to push back against congressional conservatives who have threatened prominent researchers with investigations and vowed to kill regulations to rein in man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
On Monday, the American Geophysical Union, the country's largest association of climate scientists, plans to announce that 700 climate scientists have agreed to speak out as experts on questions about global warming and the role of man-made air pollution.

The project, called Climate Q&A Service, aims simply to provide accurate scientific answers to questions from journalists about climate science.
