Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Do Right-Wing Intellectuals Always Obey Their “Corporate Masters”? Part II

No (but we knew that already). According to The New York Times:

But that appears to be a tall order, judging by reaction yesterday to the group's preliminary findings, which drew suspicion from climate skeptics and mainstream climate scientists alike.


But yesterday wasn't the first time the BEST effort has come under scrutiny. Joe Romm, a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress, has called into question the study's funders, which include the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation -- which has supported efforts opposing mainstream climate change science.

Hmmmmm… The supposedly-evil and corrupting Koch brothers hired an honest man? What does this imply about anybody who dismisses opposition with the claim that Koch brothers paid for it?

Since Joseph Romm was mentioned above, you must never forget that he calculates the cost of nuclear subsidies in terms of total amount since the technology was invented and the cost of “alternative-energy” subsidies in terms of cents per day per household. I think that's illegal when done in a financial prospectus.
