Tom Fuller Gets One Right

mt commends TF - correctly - for denouncing Lamar Smith. I've asked him if he will, in return, denounce Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman.

My prediction is that mt will not; that he will argue a difference between trawling through scientists emails and trawling through a companies email. I predict that I will reply that he is biased by his dislike of Exxon.

Weird stuff from TF; the KKK; and the ATTP connection

A little birdie points me at Too Much Climate News: A Tale of Two Ice Caps, Cuccinelli Redux, And Halloween Zombie Climate Denier Justifications. This contains some silliness ("Over in Alarmist land, And Then There’s Physics  tries to explain away a similar gain in ice in Greenland. The huge ice cap is gaining mass"; but then again science has never been TF's strong suit) and the curious "Update: Sorry for those in the comment thread. I just booted ATTP and yanked his posts. It will disrupt the threading. That’s four people I’ve booted in four years. Sigh…" (archive). For those familiar with TF's mantra "the worst thing about censorship is not knowing what has been censored" this will come as no great surprise; but those familiar with the always reasonable ATTP will, correctly I think, read this more as a judgement on TF than anything else; Yeah, ATTP. Right. You’re a KKK member looking to kneecap your policy opponents speaks for itself.
