Not just the status quo buys PR machines like Al Gore, who hypes the issue, and makes absurd proclamations.<quoted text>
You know scientists by their nature are usually introverted so selling a message is not what they are about. There are not too many David Suzuki's in this world. So they have to rely on the honesty of the press to get their message out. On the other hand any commercial interest that wants to defend the status quo can buy any PR machine to do the work for them including right wing bloggers putting out tonnes of misinformation. When it comes to the environment, we either have to put faith in our government or collect from & rely on the public to protect it. It won't come from anywhere else.
Your lens needs cleaning.
