    The Union of Concerned Scientists?

    Bwahahaha!

    From their Climate Change page:

    ” Global Warming Contrarians

    Why has it been so difficult to achieve meaningful solutions? Media pundits, partisan think tanks, and special interest groups funded by fossil fuel and related industries raise doubts about the truth of global warming. These >>>deniers<<< downplay and distort the evidence of climate change, demand policies that allow industries to continue polluting, and attempt to undercut existing pollution standards."

    Just another leftist front organization, wearing science as a fig leaf.

      Thanks for the comment. At the AAAS panel, the people from UCS repeatedly said that science alone should not be allowed to determine policy decisions. The UCS website you mention (http://www.ucsusa.org/global_warming) is correct that fossil fuel industries have often sought to mislead the public about climate science, but the terms “contrarian” and “denier” mistakenly suggest the main problem is the public’s lack of knowledge, rather than competing interests and values.
