Self-published Dangerous Drek

Why? Because they provide propaganda for the deniers who are always hunting for fake data and fake scientists to fight the real ones. The public can be fooled and is in many cases. It takes time, although not much in this case, to fight them with online shills. A case in point from below: iceagenow.com Wow.

Monbiot eviscerates:
Iceagenow was constructed by a man called Robert W Felix to promote his self-published book about "the coming ice age". It claims that sea levels are falling, not rising; that the Asian tsunami was caused by the "ice age cycle"; and that "underwater volcanic activity - not human activity - is heating the seas".

Is Felix a climatologist, a volcanologist or an oceanographer? Er, none of the above. His biography describes him as a "former architect".

Up is down baby!

'Drek' is also correct.

It is a variant spelling of 'Dreck'.

Drek comes from Yiddish meaning 'filth or dregs'.

I was Kosher and didn't know it. I love it when a plan comes together.
