The head of the Environmental Protection Agency says he will investigate a threatening letter sent by the leader of an EPA-member group, vowing to "destroy" the career of a climate skeptic.
During a Capitol Hill hearing yesterday, Sen. James M. Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican and ranking member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, confronted EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson about the strongly-worded letter written July 13 by Michael T. Eckhart, president of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) that was sent to Marlo Lewis, senior fellow of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).
"It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar," Mr. Eckhart wrote. "If you produce one more editorial against climate change, I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity. I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members. I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America. Go ahead, guy. Take me on."

Yep, even at the highest levels the global warming supporters are nothing by a bunch of hateful eco-terrorists who don’t care about the facts.
Lawrence Solomon's "The Deniers" (a series of articles on the view of scientists who have been labelled "Global Warming Deniers"):
Mr. Eckhart undoubtedly considers himself a paragon of reason, kindness, and good sense. Just ask him.
Good call by Inhofe. He’s on full moonbat alert.
Hmmm. Sounds like Harvard should host a debate between Michael Echkhart and Marlo Lewis on the scientific evidence, or lack thereof, of antropogenic causes of ‘Global Warming’. I mean, if they’re all for finding out the truth, it shouldn’t be a problem, right?
Plus, they come off sounding like snotty 13 year-olds.
If he succeeds, I suppose Mr. Johnson will have no choice, since he can no longer be a liar, but to be truthful and honest.
Mr. Eckhart, you're an idiot!
What an idiot!!!!!
The man just threatened extortion.
Lock him up!
However, this column earlier this week published another letter Mr. Eckhart sent in September to CEI President Fred Smith, saying "my children will have a lesser life because you are being paid by oil companies to spread a false story."
He said he would give CEI, which advocates "sound science," 90 days to reverse its "position" on global warming, "or I will take every action I can think of to shut you down," including filing complaints with the Internal Revenue Service "on the basis that CEI is really a lobbyist for the energy industry."
Speaks for itself!
With the publication of the article in Science, I gained significant credibility in the community of scientists working on climate change. They thought I was one of them.... One of them let his guard down. A major person working in the area of climate change and global warming sent me an astonishing email that said: "We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period."-- Nir J Shaviv
Even in academia there are standards. My advice would be not to get mad. Instead, get even. When Ward Churchill’s ‘work’ FINALLY came under rigorous scrutiny, it turned out to be full of lies, half-lies, and out-right thefts. How do you suppose this foaming-at-the-mouth moonbat would fare if his work came under a similar examination?
The problem is when liberals lies are found out it is usually too late. They lied about abortion, but that helped get Roe v. Wade. They lie about DDT, and that led to a ban. They lie about the war, and that helped public sentiment go against the war. They lie about homosexuality being genetic. They lie about global warming. They consistently advance their agenda with lies and get away with it.
If this were the middle ages the LLL’s and the Democrats would be the ones burning people at the stake, branding “heretics” with branding irons and stoning to death all who do not believe in and support the dogma of Our Transgendered Lady of the “Common Good” church. it would be they, not conservatives who would excommunicate Copernicus and Galileo for daring to dispute the “truth”.
Congratulations Democrats and LLL’s, you have become what you swear you hate. It does explain the psychotic behaviour of many Democrats and other LLL’s. it also explains why they love the Islamofascists so much.
