One of the climate hysterics favorite tropes is that realists are a denialist conspiracy in the pay of big oil.
Like many of the other loony things the hysterics maintain, this is principally a reflection of their own behaviour. Which is confirmed by the remarks made on the open Skeptical Science Web Forum. Steve McIntyre, one of the identified targets, has a selection of the remarks on that forum.
It is pretty “inside baseball” for anyone who has not been paying close attention to the climate debate…but fascinating if you have been.
