Enviromental Skepticism is Pseudo-Science

"A review of environmental skepticism literature from the past 30 years has found that the vast majority of skeptics, often identified as independent, are directly linked to politically oriented, conservative think tanks."

Skeptics on climate change have every right to voice their opinion. "But the statements of a few think tank-supported experts should not be regarded as equal to scientific findings that have been vetted through an intense peer-review process", says a blogger from the WorldWatch Institute. Click here to see the blog article and also find the study of environmental skeptic literature.

Environmental Network News also has a good article entitled "Another Blow to the Pseudo-Science of Global Warming Skeptics -- A Guest Commentary". My conference at the University of Chicago confirmed for me that the skeptics are engaging in pseudo-science every bit as much as the "Intelligent Design" scientists do by challenging the established biological evidence for evolution. It's really no different.
