The Denialist

Is Ronald Bailey of reason magazine up to his usual misinformation. He is also an "adjunct scholar at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the Cato Institute." If that isn't enough there's the denialist books to seal the deal. Yeah I get it that he doesn't believe in global warming, and is an attribution sceptic , but it's real nonetheless and his argument here fails miserably.
Perhaps some global warming skeptics are paid advocates (liars), but many are not. Gore's tobacco industry insinuation is an attempt to discredit opponents by smear rather than on the basis of scientific evidence.
Boy is this ever the pot calling the cauldron black. Notice how Bailey doesn't name any? That's because they are all paid advocates, except Bill Gray who is just crazy on his own when it comes to global warming denial.
