Read the excellent article in full: "The global warming guerrillas" HERE. (opens in print mode to read on one page instead of six!)
Yet, this time round, despite 20 years of being told they were not just factually but morally wrong, of being compared to Holocaust deniers, of being told they deserved to be tried for crimes against humanity, of being avoided at parties, climate sceptics seem to be growing in number and confidence by the day.

Ostracised online objicients...
Matt Ridley in the Spectator writes that journalists tend to complain that the current slow death of newspapers will mean a loss of investigative reporting and that this will be a disaster; it will. However what Matt points out is that despite their tales of woe and how - if we rely on the Internet - who will sniff out "the real story", re Climategate, "it was amateur bloggers who scented the exaggerations, distortions and corruptions in the climate establishment; whereas newspaper reporters, even after the scandal broke, played poodle to their sources."
