This video is a bit long (about 10 minutes), uses dry humor (I like that sort of thing), and it is fascinating. Peter Sinclair makes it his business to "de-crock" the anti-science crowd. In this video he uncovers the lies in The Daily Mail (not a newspaper I would go to for news anyway) and the outrageous people calling for violence against climate scientists. In a March 2, 2010 article Climate Progress cites a Scientific American piece on cyber bullying subheaded:
Researchers must purge e-mail in-boxes daily of threatening correspondence, simply part of the job of being a climate scientist
This is part of the nastiness that is so rampant in the religious right too. If you read the article from Scientific American you will see not only do scientists get volumes of e-mail, they are called things like frauds, deceitful, or criminal. Sometimes they get threats. All of this is fueled by media like Fox News and the Daily Mail. Makes me so angry.
