Newsweek hides global warming denier’s Big Oil ties

So Newsweek is running an opinion piece about global warming titled: ‘Why So Gloomy?’ The piece is authored by Richard Lindzen, a well-known meteorologist, and his thesis about the potential melt-down of our climate can be boiled down to this: Don’t worry, be happy! At the bottom of the article, is this brief biographical sketch of the author: Lindzen is the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research has always been funded exclusively by the U.S. government. He receives no funding from any energy companies. Sounds like he’s on the up-and-up, no? After all, the guy’s not one of those scientists who denies global warming and then cashes nice checks from a bunch of big energy firms, right? Maybe those wing-nuts are right when they deny that there’s a scientific consensus about human activities contributing to global warming. Hmmm. Oh, but wait. That name … Lindzen … sure does sound familiar...
