My latest DeSmogBlog item is about a slam on our book Unscientific America that just appeared in a newsletter of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists--the group some will remember for giving the late Michael Crichton a "journalism award" in 2006 for his novel State of Fear. As the piece notes:
You can't say the Crichton award was inconsistent: To this day, AAPG remains an organization that questions the seriousness of human caused climate change. Its website, for instance, has a policy statement on the matter that can be found here; while the language is somewhat careful, there's a clear refusal to endorse mainstream scientific conclusions on anthropogenic causation.
I then go on to analyze the AAPG's views and statements on climate, and its reviewer's views and statements on our book--both of which are, shall we say, problematic. You can read the full post here.
