Introduction to Humbug Corner
One of the tenets of Marxist/Leninist doctrine was that the end justified the means.  In those far-off days, it meant that you were free to kill those whom you deemed to be ‘Enemies of the People’.  Albeit in another form, the principle survives today.

Happily we live in less-polarised times now; and we don’t seek to kill those whose world-view differs from our own.  Nevertheless a tenet which says “you are allowed to lie about science so long as your cause is good enough” has still to be opposed.  The stakes, intellectually if no longer physically, remain high.

Opposition starts with recognition and exposure.  I am therefore preparing an occasional series of short analyses of written material relating to climate-change science.  Some targets will be less authoritative than others, and some lies, obfuscations, and omissions will be ‘whiter’ than others.  But in all cases, vigilance is an inherently worth-while endeavour.  While it seems an unrewarding and time-consuming exercise - like culling elephants - someone has to do it.
