If you've posted a blog on the global warming denial industry, you've probably received a comment from Mr. Tom Harris criticizing your piece or your sources. When I learned that I wasn't the only one who had gotten 'the message' from Harris I went to my friends at Sourcewatch.org. Turns out they've got quite a file on the guy.
At his blog: www.clmatechange.blogspot.com, Harris presents himself as a P.Eng. in Thermofluids and Executive Director of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project or NRSP.
Do a Sourcewatch check on NRSP and, OMG!, who do you find as this organization's Chairman but noneother than global warming denier generalissimo, Tim Ball. And the hits just keep on comin'. Although NSRP maintains it has no direct connection with the Calgary-based climate change denial cabal, Friends of Science, Dr. Ball is one of that group's loudest spokesmen.
Mr. Harris comes to us fresh from a stint with APCO Worldwide which, if you watched Bob McKeown's piece on the Fifth Estate, is a well-known PR firm associated with Philip Morris and its campaign to deny any link between cigarettes and cancer.
Have some fun. Go to www.sourcewatch.org and run your own searches on Tom Harris, Tim Ball, Friends of Science, Natural Resources Stewardship Project, APCO Worldwide and some guy named Phillip Morris. You'll be glad you did.
