This doesn't surprise me at all, but is still really sad and disturbing. Aparently one of the few remining scientist in the world that actually still argues that global warming really isn't so bad is getting funded by coal companies to continue his "research". Here is a link: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060727/...dmBHNlYwM3NTM-

well, someone sure has found an easy way to get an endless supply of cash. Just take a position that helps big coal business and sit back and wait for the checks to start rolling in.

The particularly frustrating part is that even though the vast, vast majority of legitimate scientists are all in agreement about this issue, whenever the media does reports on global warming they include the "counter argument" in an effort to appear neutral or something. Problem is there really aren't many scientists who believe that it isn't a huge problem, so when they present it as though there are two sides to the issue, it makes it seem like it might be somewhere close to 50/50 rather than 99/1. aggggh!!! Oh, and of course, since this guy is one of the few out there who will actually publically state that global warming isn't a big deal, he is quoted all the time.
