Damn Climate sceptics.

The other day I was just reading through one of James Delingpole’s climate blogs when I came across a reference by one of the regular commentators to CACC. As I read further I realised that this was a website set up to attempt to prevent discussion on various blogs, by have Trolls invade the sceptic blogs and try to mitigate the effects in the comments. This group calls themselves the Campaign against Climate Change and has a website to support warmists in disrupting discussion which doesn’t agree with their views on AGW.

What they do is send out regular E mails to those who subscribe, on who are the most evil sceptics of the moment Well I must admit I couldn’t resist subscribing, just to see what I would receive.

Below is what I received in my E mail today and I was surprised that all it was, was a list of a few blog posts. I thought at least as a “paid up” (supposedly) member I would get some hint of  what I should be posting on these evil denier blogs. The pitiful offering is below:

Included was a small précis of each which I wont bother you with.

I’m just wondering if I’ll ever get on their esteemed list. (Note  to self: Must try harder).

And the icing on the cake is…………………………………..

George Monbiot is their President.

They don’t seem to have a comment facility on their blogs, but I see that they have a Forum. In that case I shall have to break out my secret weapon.


  1. I've been on their list for a few weeks now.

    AFAICT from the emails I get absolutely no analysis appears to go into the individual entries. In fact it looks automated to me because quite a few slip through that are not directly climate related.

    I feel quite aggrieved on behalf of Bishop Hill actually, who seems to have every one of his posts tagged for some reason. I don't know what awful crime he committed compared to the rest of us evil "deniers".

    Also there have been some pretty spectacular blog entries and articles that they have not alerted their readers about for many days, if not a week or two. By which point the comments are usually full to the brim with sceptical viewpoints.

    What I find particularly galling is that George Monbiot had the brass balls to assert recently in his CiF hole that much more control over the comments was "necessary" because "denier trolls" were "obviously" being organised by this very same kind of email alert.

    It really makes me want to punch him in the head repeatedly.

  2. Now you've used your secret weapon, what will you do?
    I hope you have a "secreter" one.
    just in case...

    If everyone had to offer their real name, as I do, wouldn't this reduce trolling?

  3. Katabasis.
    Looking at their site and forum it would seem that the shine is falling off. The last post was december and the forum has no knew posts for awhile.

    I've yet to use it. But I will. Oh Yes.
